Look for important things before buying a 3D printer

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.”

Request a free 3D print sample part

Request a free 3D print sample part.

Please read our policies before requesting the sample:)
According to the Formlabs, “stereolithography (SLA) print process, and see how Formlabs prints compare to parts made from an extrusion-based fused deposition modeling (FDM) 3D printer:

Form 1+ is a stereolithography 3D printer. Today, we’re going to look at how it works and put it to the test against parts from an extrusion-based machine.

Let’s start by taking a closer look at the printer. When we open up the light blocking cover, we can see a build platform inside. This metal plate is where the parts are made.

Underneath the build platform is a liquid resin tank. This clear window gives the ultraviolet laser a path to cure the resin.

To start a print, we’ll upload a file, and fill up the resin tank to the indicator line. You can see the laser passing back and forth inside, hardening the liquid plastic.

Now, We’ll take our print out and wash it in rubbing alcohol to get the excess resin off. The flower comes with supports on it, and we’ll snip them off to finish the piece.

Stereolithography is known for producing extreme detail, with layers down to four times finer than a human hair.

The Form 1+ lets us take advantage of a library of materials, so we made some other parts to show what these resins can do.

A Castable Resin gives jewelers and engineers an inexpensive way to produce metal parts. This Flexible Resin is great for simulating different textures and as we can see, this Tough Resin and can really take a hit”.

Health Canada’s 3D Printed Implantable Devices.
According to Health Canada, “This guidance document is intended to aid manufacturers and regulatory representatives in preparing medical device license applications for 3D printed medical devices. As with all Class III and IV medical devices, devices produced by additive manufacturing or 3D printing, are subject to the Medical Devices Regulations (Regulations) and require a review of submitted evidence of safety and effectiveness before a license can be issued”.

3D Printing News Alert(3D printing companies and stocks)

Posted on Updated on

3D printing companies and stocks. According to Motley Fool Stock Advisor, “Investors should continue to focus on sales of 3D printers. This business is much more important than suggested by its contribution to overall revenue, which was 22.5% last quarter. Sales of 3D printers drive future sales of print materials, which sport higher margins than the other segments of the company’s business”.

Dr. 3D Printer precautions for advanced manufacturing( Laser Cutting with a 3D Printer )

Posted on Updated on

I am using useful comments for this youtube video:)

Please use some precautions if you are using Laser Cutting with a 3D Printer” It is very very important to use the carbon monoxide detector.part cooling fan” style fan it will help you when you cut. It reduces the risk of something catching fire and blows away the burned wood so the laser can reach the uncut wood.

It might risk sooth accumulating on the lens and eventually blocking enough light that you damage the lens itself with the heat.
You need ventilation and more than just an open window. If you want to use the airbrush compressor into a vacuum pump to pull away from the smoke. I will be worried that you can see the laser beam through the safety-glasses.
If you want to prevent the face from getting charred, put painter’s tape on top.
If you want the laser performance to last you need another mini fan to blow out the smoke so the residue of that smoke won’t be impaired on the laser beam output if you don’t blow air in the output focus lens that lens Will get covered with the smoke residue and destroy it so you need to blow air on the output lens and evacuate the smoke at the same time, you can add a mechanical end stop to the laser to home the Z, as the laser never needs to be hitting the bed or print like a nozzle,

To prevent the scorching just add some masking tape on top of the plywood. Did you think about designing an enclosure for the hypercube? That would be the best for ventilation of all those nasty laser fumes”.
Suggestions for height adjustment–
+1 on adjusting the z height with each pass to keep the focal length the same and +1 on some air assist as the smoke will reduce the laser’s power. With both mods, you’d cut through in fewer passes.

Would you like to eat iPhone 3D printed ‘Pancake'(3D Printed Food recipe (Chew ))

Posted on Updated on

Would you like to eat iPhone ‘Pancake’
3D printer to create fun breakfast food designs. Using a combination of compressed air pressure and vacuum suction, it reproduces drawings and designs on a 19 1/4″ L x 10 1/4″ W griddle by strategically dispensing one’s preferred batter.
According to the comments, “Downloaded a jpg then used the Pancake Painter software to trace the logo, setting the darkness level for each segment to give the right appearance. Saved to the SD card, then loaded on the printer. They made a few test pancakes to adjust settings. For the true test, There is photographed the pancake user made and sent it in an e-mail and asked the recipient if the design was identifiable. The answer came back: Pittsburgh Steelers logo. Success! Besides, the pancakes tasted good, too. Give yourself plenty of time. The process is not speedy. Part of the attraction is watching the pancake printer dispense the batter to give the shades you want based on the length of time the batter is on the grill. I’m anxious to cook it up when the kids come for breakfast”:)
