Generative design for 3D printing

Posted on Updated on

According to BigRep CEO Stephan Beyer, Ph.D.,” Our BANYAN ECO WALL is adopting nature’s principle with a complex, smart, and elegant design only achievable with AM. Traditional technologies such as milling or injection molding cannot deliver this level of complexity and dual functionality. For the first time, thanks to AM and advanced CAD software, it is now possible to create complex functional designs within a fully digitized process chain.”
BigRep CIO and NOWLAB Managing Director Daniel Büning add, “Generative design software was crucial in the creation of the BANYAN ECO WALL to optimize the structure for printability and stability while allowing a rapid iterative design process. This prototype will push the boundaries of AM not only in irrigated plant systems, such as in vertical farming and green facades but for any application requiring embedded functionalities.”

I have a robotics class in my high school, and the entire class has to build some with the tools they learned from previous years. I am the only one that is making a fully functional 3D printed arm.

3D Printing News Alert(3D printing in the defence now and before)

Posted on

According to Army Technology, “3D printing in the defence manufacturing: issue 100 of Global Defence Technology out now. Global Defence Technology is back for a special celebratory 100th issue, as always packed with the latest industry news and analysis. In this issue, we explore the potential of additive manufacturing for defence applications, speak to Airbus about its involvement in the new DSEI Space Hub launching this year, and more.”

According to EDA’s ground-breaking project, “Additive Manufacturing Feasibility Study & Technology Demonstration. Aims to assess the areas where Additive Manufacturing (AM) (3D-printing) can have a positive impact on defence capabilities and to demonstrate its feasibility. In the morning of 31 May 2017, the 3D-printing lab was loaded on-board a Spanish C-130 and completed a successful 30-minute flight. This test was pivotal to examining the feasibility of the facility to be deployed by air. After landing, the lab and its equipment were inspected and found to have encountered no issues from the airlift.”

UAE’s first 3D-printed knee replacements

Posted on Updated on

UAE’s first 3D-printed knee replacements. According to Dr. Matthias Honl, he has been using the technology since 2008 in Austria and a consultant orthopedic surgeon and head of the Joint Replacement Unit at Burjeel Hospital for Advanced Surgery, Dubai, “The procedure is simple and makes use of a CT scan to size up the patient’s knee before the implant is even manufactured. It then prints a wax mold of the implant based on the dimensions of the patient’s knee, which is used as a model for the implant itself. I am happy that the technology found its way to be available for our patients in the Gulf region.
Both patients complained of extreme pain. After assessing their condition, we decided to have customized knees for each of them, using 3D technology”.

Posted on Updated on

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”.
