ChefJet Pro Food Printer from 3D Systems
ChefJet Pro is a professional 3d printer for food from 3D Systems. 3D printing allows culinary artists to create intricate culinary forms that were very difficult or impossible to develop before. 3D Systems also started Culinary Lab, a center for 3D printing culinary innovation in 2015. The Culinary Lab is in Los Angeles and provides a forum for collaboration and interaction between people interested in culinary art and 3D printing.
3D Printing in Space: A Thermoplastic for Additive Manufacturing from Stratasys
Equipment used in space encounters extreme environment, for example, large temperature changes in short periods of time, extreme radiations, and so on. One problem encountered in space is rapid build-up of electrostatic charge. To address such conditions, Stratasys Advanced Materials has developed ESD PEKK, a thermoplastic for additive manufacturing that has electrostatic dissipative (ESD) qualities. The ESD properties combined with excellent mechanical and thermal properties makes ESD PEKK suitable for advanced electronics applications, for example, for use in space.
Arcam Uses Electron Beam Melting (EBM) for 3D Printing Metal Implants
Arcam is a Swedish company founded in 1997. Arcam provides cost-effective 3D printing solutions for metal parts. The Arcam EBM (Electronic Beam Melting) builds metal parts from metal powder by melting the metal powder with a powerful electronic beam. The electron beam is precisely controlled using electromagnetic coils.
Arcam uses the EBM technology to manufacture patient specific orthopedic implants. Computer Tomography (CT) is used to build a CAD model of a patient specific implant and EBM technology is used to 3D print the part from the CAD model.
Thermaltake is a manufacturer of PC cases designs, power supplies and cooling solutions. Thermaltake has launched a website for custom PC modification using 3D printing. The website provides downloads of designs for building custom PCs and also allows users to submit their designs. According to their website “Thermaltake is intended to build an innovative brand by incorporating with “Maker Movement” ideas. Thus, we offer a 3D printing platform for anyone who loves “DIY” and “Modding” to discuss and share the innovation and creation of customized case components and accessories.”
