McLAREN DEPLOYS STRATASYS ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING TO IMPROVE 2017 CAR PERFORMANCE

Posted on Updated on

 

Formula 1 cars race at very high speeds – up to 227 mph (365 km/h)– utilizing power units that reach a maximum of 15,000 revolutions per minute (RPM). We  love McLAREN cars. They are awesome. (please drive safely and not too fast, please don’t text and drive).

McLAREN deploys STRATASYS additive manufacturing to improve 2017 car performance. They 3D-printed a structural bracket to attach the hydraulic line on the MCL32 race car using Stratasys FDM technology, leveraging a Fortus 450mc Production 3D Printer with carbon-fibre-reinforced nylon material (FDM® Nylon 12CF).

“They are consistently modifying and improving our Formula 1 car designs,” said Neil Oatley, Design and Development Director, McLaren Racing. “So the ability to test new designs quickly is critical to making the car lighter and, more importantly, increasing the number of tangible iterations in improved car performance.

“If we can bring new developments to the car one race earlier – going from new idea to new part in only a few days – this will be a key factor in making the MCL32 more competitive. By expanding the use of Stratasys 3D printing in our manufacturing processes, including producing final car components, composite lay-up and sacrificial tools, cutting jigs, and more, we are decreasing our lead times while increasing part complexity.”

“Formula 1 is one of the world’s best proving grounds for our additive manufacturing solutions,” said Andy Middleton, President, Stratasys EMEA. “As the Official Supplier of 3D-Printing Solutions to the McLaren-Honda Formula 1 team, we are working closely together to solve their engineering challenges in the workshop, in the wind-tunnel, and on the track. We believe that this, in turn, will enable us to develop new materials and applications that bring new efficiency and capability to McLaren Racing and other automotive designers and manufacturers.”

The emergence of “4D printing”

Posted on Updated on

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.

Stereolithography (SLA)

Link Posted on

Stereolithography (SLA)


Stereolithography or “SLA” printing is an early and widely used 3D printing technology. The word is a portmanteau of the Greek words “stereon” (solid), “lithos” (stone) and “graphy”. Also known as additive manufacturing (a method of Rapid Prototyping), 3D printing was invented with the intent of allowing engineers to create prototypes of their designs in a more time effective manner.

technology first appeared as early as the 1970s.  Japanese researcher Dr. Hideo Kodama first invented the modern layered approach to stereolithography by using ultraviolet light to cure photosensitive polymers.

On July 16, 1984, three weeks before Chuck Hull filed his own patent.

Alain Le Mehaute, Olivier de Witte and Jean Claude André filed a patent for the stereolithography process.

The French inventors’ patent application was abandoned by the French General Electric Company (now Alcatel-Alsthom) and CILAS (The Laser Consortium). Le Mehaute believes that the abandonment reflects a problem with innovation in France.

Mr. Hull’s patent described a concentrated beam of ultraviolet light focused onto the surface of a vat filled with a liquid photopolymer. The UV light beam is focused onto the surface of the liquid photopolymer, creating each layer of the desired 3D object by means of crosslinking (or degrading a polymer).

In 1986, Mr. Hull founded the world’s first 3D printing company, 3D Systems Inc. which is currently based in Rock Hill SC.
