3D printed global habitat for sustainable living

Posted on Updated on

According to Mapei, a worldwide producer of construction materials, “TECLA will be the first house to be entirely 3D printed using locally sourced clay.
A biodegradable and recyclable ‘km 0 natural’ material which will effectively make the building zero-waste.”

3D Printing zero-waste products are coming

Posted on Updated on

According to Peter H. Diamandis, MD, “3D Printing zero-waste products are coming, Welcome to the 2030 era of tailor-made, rapid-fire, ultra-cheap, and zero-waste product creation… on our planet, and far beyond. 3D Printing on the ISS.
Today, the most expensive supply chain in the known universe extends only 241 miles. Jutting straight up from mission control down here on Earth, this resupply network extends directly to the astronauts aboard the International Space Station (or the ISS).”

How 3D Printing, Vertical Farming

Posted on Updated on

According to van der Feltz, the Eindhoven High Tech Campus, a 90-minute train ride south of Amsterdam, You can create optimal growing conditions for the crop and you don’t need to wash it. The washing process damages the leaves and causes them to decay faster. Having the growth facility nearby decreases travel time and means the food will be fresher.”

Recycled Material Extrusion Additive Manufacturing

Posted on Updated on

Recycled Cellulose Polypropylene Composite Feedstocks for Material Extrusion Additive Manufacturing. According to ACS publications,” Many types of consumer-grade packaging can be used in material extrusion additive manufacturing processes, providing a high-value output for waste plastics. However, many of these plastics have reduced mechanical properties and increased warpage/shrinkage compared to those commonly used in three-dimensional (3D) printing. Recycled polypropylene/waste paper, cardboard, and wood flour composites were made using a solid-state shear pulverization process.”

Hasbro To Eliminate Plastic Packaging

Posted on Updated on

According to Hasbro, “one of the world’s largest toy manufacturers, has stepped up its sustainability game and is phasing out all plastics used to package its toys and games by the end of 2022. phasing out plastic from new product packaging, including plastic elements like polybags, elastic bands, shrink wrap, window sheets, and blister packs.3D printed toy designers should ramp up their knowledge about alternative sustainable materials.”

3D printing to build titanium bikes

Posted on Updated on

3D printing to build titanium bikes. According to The folks at Moots,” have been building gravel-focused bikes since 1981. In 1991, Moots went all-in on titanium frames and never looked back. Since then the methods for the building have evolved. They now include 3D-printed titanium parts, which Moots uses to push its frame design to new limits.”

I love learning about small companies that are still significantly motivated by pride.

While their products will, by necessity, be more expensive, the experience of designing, constructing and owning something like that will almost certainly be more satisfying and meaningful, even if each of those steps takes longer to achieve.

The days of easy come, easy go, are ruining the planet and have already taken any sort of pride out of the process. I for one, congratulate Moots for doing their own work, and doing it with obvious care.

Hopefully, we can see more videos like this one from real manufacturers and not just business models that outsource. Thanks for the excellent video!

Anodizing explanation was slightly off, it’s not really about the shape of crystals. The different colours in this case are achieved by building up a very thin oxide layer. As light goes through the oxide layer and reflected by the material it gets bent slightly, just like when you look into water. Because the oxide layer is about the same thickness as the wavelengths of visible light, you get interference on certain wavelengths. Depending the thickness of the oxide layer, different wavelengths are affected by that interference so you get different colours.

Absolutely brilliant. would love nothing more than a costumized titanium bike! The fact that they’ve kept up with time and put disc brakes, more clearance for wider tyres is just fantastic. Can’t imagine a more enjoyable bike than those.

How long until we get a 3D printed Aero titanium Frame, I wonder…

Why Investments in 2020 Additive Manufacturing?

Why Investments in 2020 Additive Manufacturing?
Are Likely to Increase in 2020.
According to ETFs consumers initially saw 3D printers as a “factory in every home, but they soon came to realize that the items they produced weren’t functional. As the hype fizzled out, new fears emerged in the manufacturing segment, and some companies using 3D printers saw year-over-year declines in their revenue. The rise and fall of additive manufacturing took place over a few short years, but that wasn’t the end of the story.”

According to TriLine“The share of renewables in meeting global energy demand is expected to grow by one-fifth in the next five years to reach 12.4% in 20232. RENW aims to offer long-term exposure to the growing future of energy,”

Additive manufacturing is on an upward trajectory as of late. This resurgence is due to the fact that the list of possible 3D-printable materials has more than doubled in the last five years.”

According to Dean Franks, the head of global sales at the additive manufacturing company, Autodesk, “believes that consumer products, industrial machinery, automotive and tooling applications are the growth opportunities for additive manufacturing. He believes that these industries will start to grow as the more established aerospace, medical and dental markets continue to grow.”
According to Bertrand Humel van der Lee, the Chief Customer Operations Officer at EOS, “predicts that 3D printing within healthcare will flourish because there is an increase in demand for personalized healthcare, treatments, and medical devices.”
According to the Morningstar North America Renewable Energy Index, which is designed, “to provide exposure to companies that operate across the full renewable energy supply chain, including renewable energy innovators, suppliers, adopters, and end-users.”
According to TriLine Index Solutions, the index and ETF development arm of Boone Pickens Capital Fund Advisors.”
