Why Investments in 2020 Additive Manufacturing?

Why Investments in 2020 Additive Manufacturing?
Are Likely to Increase in 2020.
According to ETFs consumers initially saw 3D printers as a “factory in every home, but they soon came to realize that the items they produced weren’t functional. As the hype fizzled out, new fears emerged in the manufacturing segment, and some companies using 3D printers saw year-over-year declines in their revenue. The rise and fall of additive manufacturing took place over a few short years, but that wasn’t the end of the story.”

According to TriLine“The share of renewables in meeting global energy demand is expected to grow by one-fifth in the next five years to reach 12.4% in 20232. RENW aims to offer long-term exposure to the growing future of energy,”

Additive manufacturing is on an upward trajectory as of late. This resurgence is due to the fact that the list of possible 3D-printable materials has more than doubled in the last five years.”

According to Dean Franks, the head of global sales at the additive manufacturing company, Autodesk, “believes that consumer products, industrial machinery, automotive and tooling applications are the growth opportunities for additive manufacturing. He believes that these industries will start to grow as the more established aerospace, medical and dental markets continue to grow.”
According to Bertrand Humel van der Lee, the Chief Customer Operations Officer at EOS, “predicts that 3D printing within healthcare will flourish because there is an increase in demand for personalized healthcare, treatments, and medical devices.”
According to the Morningstar North America Renewable Energy Index, which is designed, “to provide exposure to companies that operate across the full renewable energy supply chain, including renewable energy innovators, suppliers, adopters, and end-users.”
According to TriLine Index Solutions, the index and ETF development arm of Boone Pickens Capital Fund Advisors.”

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.”

Get your 3D printed model

Posted on Updated on

Autodesk’s 123D Catch and Shapify. They turn a Picture into a 3D Model. It has step-by-step instructions with the help of 3d Scan.
This is the easiest way is to use a service like to get the 3D print model. If this service not in the nearby area. The other way if you have pictures and want a model for the picture. You can contact a design service or go to the sites. Some other possibilities take your pictures and take measurements that can be turned into a 3d model. They will use some slicing software.

3D Printed Authenticity Tags


Origin is 3d printing company to develop a tamper-proof retail ‘smart tag’ guaranteeing the authenticity of high-value consumer goods.
The tags stand at the confluence of several rapidly developing technologies and have the potential to change the way brands, retailers, and consumers interact.

Ember is 3D printer from Autodesk.
“The 3D-printed Chronicled tag is the first product that can be adapted to fit entirely different markets in minutes; we can match the product’s look and feel to fit brands, retailers, and consumer tastes in different luxury-good markets without additional costs or delays,” said Origin CEO Chris Prucha.

The emergence of “4D printing”

The emergence of “4D printing”


Imagine things can replicate by itself an appropriate design. In my opinion, we need 4D printing to make water pipes for snowing region.:)
MIT researcher Skylar Tibbits works on self-assembly — the idea that instead of building something (a chair, a skyscraper).
He is an artist and computational architect. Skylar Tibbits is working on “smart” components that can assemble themselves.
3D printing has grown in sophistication since the late 1970s; TED Fellow Skylar Tibbits is shaping the next development, which he calls 4D printing, where the fourth dimension is time.
This emerging technology will allow us to print objects that then reshape themselves or self-assemble over time.
Think a printed cube that folds before your eyes, or a printed pipe able to sense the need to expand or contract.

3D printed outfit that responds to gaze of another from Behnaz Farahi

—————————————————————————————————-

According to the Behnaz Farahi,” he is an architect and designer have created a 3D printed outfit that can recognize a gaze of a person looking at the outfit and can respond to the gaze.  This work was created as part of the Pier 9, Artist in Residence Program of Autodesk. The 3D printed wearable uses a camera to detect the gaze of a person and changes its shape in response.

The Pier 9 Artists in Residence program gives artists an opportunity to work at digital fabrication workshops of Autodesk.  Artists receive funding and budget for supplies and publish their work”.
