As mentioned by Kaila Inc,” this is the Digital Factory of the Future disrupting the mining, energy and construction industry through providing 3D solutions to industrial clients. Kaila Inc is the first African startup that provides mass-customize virtual/augmented reality solutions and 3D printed models of photorealist architectural as well as topographic/geological data.”
In the opinion of Tyler Koslow, 3D Printing Industry,” With over two decades of quality data, the Wohlers Associates team has become the gold standard for computing growth, analyzing trends, and forecasting the future of additive manufacturing. Terry Wohlers, President of Wohlers Associates and author of the authoritative Wohlers Report on 3D printing, joins the podcast to talk about 3D printing at scale, the importance of design for additive, the emergence of metal 3D printing, and the inflection points he’s watching for.”

According to AMUG,” with industrial additive manufacturing/3D printing technologies and materials used for professional purposes from companies such as Stratasys, DSM, SLM Solutions, EOS, GE Additive, ExOne, BASF, Renishaw, Carbon, HP Inc., Additive Industries, Formlabs, and 3D Systems. AMUG meets annually to provide education and training through technical presentations on processes and new technologies. Uses and applications of additive manufacturing technologies.”
According to Dr. Souhail Al-Abed, lead EPA scientist of a new study on the subject,” Users may not be aware of chemical emissions during the printing process. His team’s research shows that common 3D printer ink, or filament, can emit gases during the printing phase that may pose a health risk to users and bystanders. The most concerning of these emissions are known as volatile organic compounds, or VOCs for short.”
For instance, HP says that 3D printing will enable the manufacturing industry to produce less waste, less inventory and less CO2 emissions. It allows engineers and designers to rethink design throughout the product lifecycle in order to use less material and reduce waste by combining parts and using complex geometries to produce lightweight parts.
According to DI Labs, “proud to announce the acquisition of 3D printing startup, Advocate 3D, a full-service prototyping service bureau located southwest of the Minneapolis metro. The move allows DI Labs to grow its technology portfolio and expand its client base throughout the Midwest.DI Labs created a patent-pending, customized print head solution that provided a competitive edge by doubling 3d printer speeds.”
As stated by Brian Douglass, DI Labs Co-founder, “Color 3D printing has been around for a while, but this technology is on a completely new level. We can now go directly from design to a fully functional, dimensionally accurate full-color prototype that’s strong enough for field tests, tradeshows or end use. It absolutely changes what’s possible in terms of aesthetics, design, timeline, manufacturing – everything!”
