3D printed ‘Golden Antler Hair Clip’ for the Christmas Ad

Posted on Updated on

According to 3DPRINTUK, “Golden Antler Hair Clip for the House of Fraser Christmas Ad. The client required a set of copies of the antler hair clip to be replicated and finished to look like the originals. Our task was to get them 3D modeled, 3D printed and painted in just under 3 days. A fun little Express turnaround project to create a prop for the advert shoot. Fun fact – the finishing and the filming happened on the same day.”

3D Printed Building- Interesting Facts to Know

image1[1]

We all remember the time, not so long ago when we had to hire workers to make a building and work on the project for days or months. The process costs so much and with each unexpected problem of the workers came an unexpected delay. The delayed construction and high costs created a need for the technologists to come up with a better idea. Thus, the 3d models for printing came into existence. 3d building printing gave rise to new horizons in the field of construction and manufacturing.

 3d printed buildings are built by using the technology of 3d printing as a means to construct houses and buildings in the most efficient and cost-effective method. This method has vastly been adopted by the Chinese and has also gained its worth in Europe. This makes sense because people are tired of bearing high expenditures, lengthy construction timings, and never-ending design processes. Today, 3d printing has enabled you to forget all these worries about people wearing yellow helmets and use robotic techniques for mechanical piping of concrete. So, a 3d printed building will save you from the trouble by giving you the perfect 3d model for printing.

Interesting facts to know about 3D printed houses:

  • Resolve the future homelessness

We see homelessness as one of the significant issues of humanity at present. According to estimates, homelessness can exceed up to 1.6 billion people living in the improper shelter by 2025. Building a house or building from scratch can cost people a lot. A building offering flats or hostels can save the problem by efficient working on buildings that save your cost. By replacing the traditional and lengthy methods of using bricks and mortar with automated robotic piping of concrete, one can save time and money while still reducing the problem of homelessness in society.

  • No need for bricks

As hard as it is to imagine, houses can today be made without using bricks and mortar. Bricks and mortar took more time and effort for the builders to work with, and it used to leave us for waiting the time for its completion. However, by using 3d printing, robots can pipe in the concrete step by step and even the building at the same time. This saves you the costs of buying all the material for construction and also protects from wasted time. 

  • Robots are your builders

There was once a time where it was hard for us to believe that humans can create robots one day. Today, we are at a stage where robots have become so efficient that they have become the new builders. The robots are very efficient, and they don’t need breaks like human workers. This saves more time, and work is also better than humans. The human errors are also removed to the greatest extent possible, and all humans need to do is to command the machine, and it will work for you.

  • Save the cost and time

Constructing a building is a full-time job. A building project needs to be carefully catered with and must be monitored to save it from defects and additional costs. By using 3d printing in the construction of buildings, you can save the value of the construction process by saving more time. It will also cut down the labour cost because all 3d printing needs is an initial investment, and the rest will be catered in the least possible time. Dubai today has been working on the 3d printed buildings and have been one of the most efficient working hubs for 3d printing worldwide. Thus, more and more people are adopting this new technology because it reduces costs by optimizing raw materials and useful results.

Thus, 3d printed buildings have become a new trend around the globe. People are willing to rely on robotic technology rather than humans with risky results. Robots can be left alone at the workplace without any check and balance and will work for creating a sustainable working environment.  

The only problems with 3d printed buildings are that it needs initial capital investment and also any defect in the robotic machinery can cost a lot to correct as well. Another problem with 3d printed buildings is the fact that it also reduces the job opportunities for builders and manufacturers. However, 3d printed structures are an effective way to meet the construction requirements in the minimum of time.

Interesting. I would make a spacer between the gears they were catching a bit on the gears above and below.

Cool solar-cell gantry… if it could be modified to be housed in a weather proof enclosure… and sun position info sent to the microcontroller. Just thinking out aloud here…

Materialise reports the Second quarter and now, 2019 results

Posted on Updated on

Materialise incorporates nearly 30 years of 3D printing experience into a range of software solutions and 3D printing services, which form the backbone of the 3D printing industry.
According to Materialise,” Let’s discuss ways how we can empower people to design, collaborate, build, and fabricate in more sustainable ways, while reducing waste, saving money, and staying competitive. At the end of the second quarter of 2019, the total commitment of lease assets and liabilities amounted to 5,050 kEUR. Our Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter of 2019 was affected positively by the new standard as a result of the rental payments decrease of 644 kEUR; however, our operating profit was impacted by only 52 kEUR as depreciation expenses increased by 593 kEUR.
Materialise, Will acquire a mix of existing and new shares bringing its total shareholding to 75%, with the founding shareholders retaining the remaining 25%. All shares will be fully paid for in cash at the closing, which is expected to take place during the week of August 5, 2019.”

According to Materialise reports the Second quarter and now, 2019 Results, Executive Chairman Peter Leys commented, “In spite of a macro-economic environment that continues to be challenging, Materialise reported another quarter of top-line growth. This was mainly driven by Materialise Medical, which continued to perform strongly with solid revenue growth and EBITDA performance, and also by Materialise Manufacturing, which realized a double-digit EBITDA margin and grew its revenues for the third consecutive quarter.

This quarter, the contribution by Materialise Software to our revenue growth and Adjusted EBITDA margin was below our expectations as a number of sales were pushed out to the second half of the year. Our outlook for 2019 remains within our previous guidance range, with our results now including expected contributions from our August acquisition of a 75% stake in Engimplan.

This investment, which will enable us to introduce the benefits of Materialise’s patient-specific 3D printing implants and expertise to the fast-growing Brazil market, is part of our strategy to accelerate our growing presence in the additive manufacturing ecosystem through carefully selected acquisitions and partnerships.”
