According to Print Your Environment,” Concept build for a 3D printed modular watch. Made up of 3 printed and interchangeable parts (for different designs and colors) to create many different combinations. Designed in Fusion 360, printed at 0.06 mm layer height on Ultimaker 3. Finished and assembled. 3D Printed Wristwatch”.
NTU Singapore develops technology that can 3D-print a bathroom unit within a day According to Assoc Prof Tan Ming Jen,” 3D-printing a bathroom unit could help manufacturers halve their production time while lowering transport costs, carbon emissions, and materials wastage. Less space is required to create and store the same number of PBUs in land-scarce Singapore since conventional PBUs take about two weeks before they can be ready.
By being able to print-on-demand, companies can save on their inventory costs as well as manpower costs, as they don’t have to hold as much stock and their workers can be redeployed to do higher-level tasks. This approach improves the safety of the workplace since robots are doing the construction of the bathroom unit.
According to team lead from Sembcorp Design and Construction, and Sembcorp Architects & Engineers Er Lie Liong Tjen, “3D printing technology allows concrete to be printed and customized. The complicated shape of a PBU and its walls can be developed and printed at a faster pace to satisfy the needs of individual customers as no formwork or molds are required, whereas conventional construction of PBUs with concrete or lightweight wall panels always limit the possibilities of design. In addition, 3D printing can build curvilinear profiles rather than rectilinear forms”.
ARCADIA, Wis. Ashley Furniture Inds. is using 3D printers in its manufacturing facilities.
According to Vaughn Pieters, senior director of case good operations, “We’re doing 10% more business out of our Arcadia facility alone with probably almost 15% less labor. Automation has really allowed us to remove some of that heavy physicality. We don’t have employees doing that heavy bulk work all day long anymore. We let the machine do that, so the employees can use their minds and try to better the process”.
According to Ashley,” It’s using printers from Boston-based 3D printing unicorn Formlabs in several of its manufacturing facilities, printing about 700 3D parts, so the machines are able to work right alongside the industrial robots from assembly to fabrication”.
According to Julia Daviy, “the World’s First Zero-Waste Fully Customizable 3D-Printed Skirt. The days of 3D printing being a hyped-up novelty are gone. The technology has moved past the innovation stage and is well into the early adoption phase as more and more people seek out information and dip their toes into the industry. But while 3D printing as a whole is rapidly becoming more mainstream, when it comes to printing clothing, there are still major challenges”.
Titomic is innovating Australian manufacturing. According to Australian metal AM company Titomic’s Managing Director Jeff Lang reports,” Titomic’s formation, and why Titomic is well-positioned to provide advanced, digital manufacturing solutions now and in the future. ” that it has 3D printed the largest titanium unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). The drone, which measures over 1.8 meters in diameter, was manufactured using the company’s rapid Titomic Kinetic Fusion technology—specifically, it’s large-format TKF 9000, which itself spans 9 x 3 x 1.5 meters. Titomic machines have build rates that are exponentially faster than conventional metal 3D printers currently available”.
Ocean waste to create 3D-printed seashell sculptures. According to Rotterdam-based research and design studio, ‘the new raw’ has conceived a pioneering project which transforms ocean waste into digitally crafted sculptures. the initiative, which repurposes abandoned fishing nets and processes them into threadlike filaments to create design objects, raises awareness of the environmental issues of marine plastic pollution”.
According to 3D printing company re 3D’s co-founder, Matthew Fiedler, “You now have access to large-scale 3D printers. The Houston company opened its community space in its factory located next to the NASA Johnson Space Center in southeast Houston.
The company makes an affordable and customizable 3D printer, called the Gigabot, and has clients across industries in over 50 countries.
A hidden scientific gem resides at Southwestern Adventist University: more than 20,000 dinosaur bones and precious prehistoric data. In the university’s Dinosaur Museum and Research Center, a Gigabot is being used to 3D print bones.
Greneker is a leader in the world of custom mannequin design and manufacturing, and they’re staying competitive in the fast-moving apparel marketplace with the help of 3D printing. Their Los Angeles office has a dedicated 3D printer room which is home to four Gigabots”.
According to Campden BRI, “We have recently invested in a 3D printer to investigate the potential for, and the limitations of, 3D printing when applied to food. The 3D printer will be used to assess:
the printability of foods
the creation of complex designs
the potential for personalized nutrition
the impact on food texture”.
According to MX3D,” the Dutch robotics firm, develop groundbreaking robotic additive manufacturing technology. We innovate by constantly creating new strategies and software solutions to print a large variety of metal alloys in virtually any size and shape; learning by doing is key”.
