3D printing uptake to increase in oil and gas industry

Posted on Updated on

According to 3D Printing in Oil & Gas – Thematic Research, “Additive manufacturing, or 3D printing, has emerged as one of the key enabling technologies in driving industrial productivity. Over the years, 3D printing technology has received increasing prominence in different industries and has significantly impacted automotive and aerospace manufacturing. The oil and gas industry has also shown slow but steady adoption of this technology in recent years. Initially, 3D printing technology was largely limited to polymer-based products. However, recent advancements in metal-based 3D printing is making this technology more relevant to the oil and gas industry.”

3D printed liquid silicone rubber

Posted on Updated on

According to German RepRap, “create future-oriented technologies and implement them in the design and production of our 3D printers. Since 2010 we have been developing our X-Series 3D Printers based on Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) technology. The special feature of all printers is the Open Source Platform, which makes it possible to use a variety of materials for printing. New consumables are constantly being tested and added to our product range. The Liquid Additive Manufacturing (LAM) process, liquids such as silicone rubber can also be processed.”

3D printed clear aligners

Posted on Updated on

3D printed clear aligners. According to Clinique Dentaire Casablanca, “The Invisalign system is a combination of proprietary virtual modeling software, rapid manufacturing processes, and mass customization, and virtually clear, removable appliances or “aligners” that are used to straighten teeth.”

It took 8 to 10 weeks for my aligners to be ready because they had to do a quality check and all that good stuff let alone deciding if I need attachments on my teeth.

According to Ryan Schultz, the Vice President of Vertical Marketing at Stratasys, “We can do full color, clear, flexible, rigid, all in one print, so the opportunities are nearly limitless.[Our] 3D printing technology is the only technology that can print at such a fine level, multiple colors within clear, to get that iridescent shimmering effect you see in a butterfly’s wing.”

I wonder how much stronger it would be if you were to iron the plastic into the shirt through a sheet of parchment paper. That might help prevent the very slight peeling of the edges on the lion’s mane after the wash.

I wonder if using the ‘Avoid crossing outline for travel moves’ in the advanced tab of Simplify 3d would help to cut down on the stringing?

Did you do any mods on your CR-10 to print flexible material? Also can you share your Simplify3D settings you ended up using?

Hey Simon – thanks for responding to those of us with the torches and pitchforks regarding the flex filament. You blew my mind using a STOCK CR-10 to do this…please share the machine settings to get Ninjaflex successfully through a CR-10 extruder.

Slic3r has an option “Avoid crossing perimeters”, which stops the print-head from travelling over your clean lines and leaving goop everywhere. You may be able to find similar options in your slicer of choice.

very interesting and a great idea ! (reminds me of the old 3D printer days when new things would be found every week!). you might get different results with different tshirts, as you get 100% cotton shirts then you get polyester shirts which have a % of plastic in them. this would get better results i dare say. but very interested might have a go my self at some point

Do you have any issues with priming the nozzle? I have not played with different slicers and startup gcode, but in cura for lulzbot it always prints the skirt around the base to prime the nozzle. Looked like you were manually priming the nozzle and turning off the skirt?

Can you show your 3d printing files in free or cheap other software, because i am noet at school anymore so i must buy yhe 3d modeling en printing software.

Great video! I don’t know how to do it in S3D but Cura slicer has a ‘Combing mode’ that minimices retractions making the nozzle travel over the printed parts. I use it when printing flexible filaments making almost zero ‘stringing’. May you find it useful for this kind of experiments.
Great work!!

U.S. Air Force – The first approved project was printed on the Stratasys F900

Posted on Updated on

According to Travis release,” The first approved project was printed on the Stratasys F900, can print parts with dimensions up to 36 inches x 24 inches x 36 inches made of Ultem 9085, a specialized plastic known for its extra flexibility, density and strength. The 60th Maintenance Squadron at Travis AFB, Calif., is the Air Force’s first-ever field unit to be equipped with a Federal Aviation Administration- and USAF-certified 3D printer capable of producing aircraft parts. Typically, parts that don’t keep the aircraft from performing their mission don’t have as high as a priority for replacement.”
According to MSgt. John Higgs, the squadron’s metals technology section chief, in the release, “We already have a list from the Air Force level to help them print and to backfill some supplies. This will ensure other bases can replace items sooner than expected with our help.”
