The Lightyear One is 3D printed

Posted on Updated on

More than 55 interior parts for the Lightyear One are 3D printed.
According to Lex Hoefsloot, CEO of Lightyear announces and Robert Llewellyn, ” gets an exclusive first look at the Lightyear One hyper-efficient luxury sedan, a partially solar-powered electric car. And gets to experience it as one of the first passengers!

When Solar Team Eindhoven won the world solar challenge in Australia driving a 4 seater 100% solar-powered car over 3,000 kilometers, no one would have believed that a handful of years later they could come up with this.
Lightyear One. A spacious hyper-efficient partially solar-powered electric car.
We know the future is electric, could it be solar electric.”

Titomic 3D prints well-positioned to provide largest titanium UAV

Posted on Updated on

Titomic is innovating Australian manufacturing. According to Australian metal AM company Titomic’s Managing Director Jeff Lang reports,” Titomic’s formation, and why Titomic is well-positioned to provide advanced, digital manufacturing solutions now and in the future. ” that it has 3D printed the largest titanium unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). The drone, which measures over 1.8 meters in diameter, was manufactured using the company’s rapid Titomic Kinetic Fusion technology—specifically, it’s large-format TKF 9000, which itself spans 9 x 3 x 1.5 meters. Titomic machines have build rates that are exponentially faster than conventional metal 3D printers currently available”.

3D Printed Heart Stents

Posted on Updated on

According to Associate Professor Barlis, “Using our ultra-sensitive heart scans combined with models derived using supercomputers, we are now able to print out segments of the patient’s arteries and hope to tailor devices to fit them perfectly.
No two arteries are shaped the same. We’re all different, with arteries that have different branches and sizes, tapering from larger to smaller. And much like debris accumulates along a riverbank, plaque can cling to certain areas of a person’s artery. So this technology really gives us a clearer picture of those areas.

We ideally want to use models to predict the best type of stent for a patient. Once this process is streamlined, we can have a patient on the table and an artery 3D printed and modeled to guide the procedure”.
According to Co-author and University of Melbourne researcher, Dr. Vikas Thondapu,” the clues about dangerous cholesterol plaques lie in certain disturbances in blood flow patterns.

Our work involves using supercomputers to simulate blood flow in the arteries. The goal is to use blood flow patterns and disturbances to potentially predict the future development of high-risk plaques”.

Housing construction with 3D concrete printers

According to Professor Jay Sanjayan, the Swinburne University of Technology,” Each block of this freestanding structure is printed using a special cement composite. Rather than factory conditions, we have to print out in the weather.

Instead of a few kilos of materials, we have to handle tonnes. And although we don’t need the same accura­cy as the aerospace industry, we have to trade that for the low cost.”

Virtual hub in Victoria,s Objective 3D to announce the new Additive Manufacturing Hub excel by $2 million

Posted on Updated on

According to Ben Carroll, Minister for Industry and Employment,“3D printing is a game changer for manufacturing – which is why we’re backing the technology so more local companies can reap the benefits. This new hub will help local manufacturers innovate, become more productive and excel in future industries. Victoria’s manufacturing industry contributes $27.7 billion to the Victorian economy, with over 13,000 businesses employing more than 283,000 people. It also exported $18.16 billion of manufactured goods in 2016-17″.

Minister for Industry and Employment Ben Carroll today joined Member for Carrum Sonya Kilkenny at Objective 3D to announce the new Additive Manufacturing Hub – supported by $2 million from the Andrews Labor Government.

Master chef fans lose it ‘3D printer’ dessert food printers

Posted on Updated on

Master chef fans lose it ‘3D printer’ dessert🥧 food printers combine nozzles, powdery material, lasers and robotic arms to make sculptures and geometric shapes.
According to Master Chef judge Matt Preston, “the dish had a “cutting edge-type element” on it before they saw it.

We’ve seen the dish🍳. There’s one element there that I don’t think I’ve seen on an Australian restaurant menu anywhere else around the country. And that’s a totally cutting edge-type element that I think is going to bake your noodles🍝,”.
