3D printer for fabric designers

Posted on Updated on

According to Lior, he is an application engineer and senior industrial designer at Stratasys,” he wanted a design that used a fabric covering, a popular trend in smart speakers.
Because he was using multilateral for this project, he knew he could incorporate fabric into the design immediately. He used PolyJet Technology™. His first models were 3D printed with DraftGrey™ – a low-cost, single material, fast printing option ideal for rapid prototyping.
Lior started with dozens of hand-drawn sketches. He liked the look of
minimalist, geometric shapes, so Lior, tried cubes, spheres, even triangles. He also mentioned he had so many iterations that it was hard to keep track of them all – he had to stay very organized.”

The food regulations for 3D printing in both metal and nylon

Posted on Updated on

According to a 3D printing manufacturer in Denmark, the Danish Technological Institute where they meet the food regulations for 3D printing in both metal and nylon, “The robotic grippers for Marel are 3D-printed in nylon, and our production processes as well as the material are completely in accordance with food regulations. This means that we have complete traceability throughout the production process – from powder to finished product – and the same applies to our 3D printing in metal, where we print in titanium, aluminium and stainless steel for the food industry, says Mads Østergaard, Section Manager at the Danish Technological Institute.”
