Stratasys 3D Printing Analysis: The king of 3D printing 3D printing is reshaping industries, especially manufacturing, as companies look to cut costs and make their own parts. Boeing has said it is using 3D printing to create more than 20,000 airplane components, and hopes to make wings one day using 3D printers. Stratasys is at the forefront of the industry, and it’s only poised to get bigger. Stratasys is benefiting from Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM), which is the most cost-effect way to do 3D printing. Stratasys recently bought Objet, and purchased Makerbot, the popular Brooklyn-based 3D printing company earlier this year for $403 million to solidify its position in the consumer space. 3D printing is in what’s known as the additive manufacturing market, a market that’s been growing like a weed for the past 20 years. There is one caveat to that thesis, especially as it relates to the printing space. On HP’s most recent earnings call, Whitman talked about 3D printing, and that HP is going to move into the space.

Tantillus RepRapWiki RepRap is humanity's first general-purpose self-replicating manufacturing machine. RepRap takes the form of a free desktop 3D printer capable of printing plastic objects. Since many parts of RepRap are made from plastic and RepRap prints those parts, RepRap self-replicates by making a kit of itself - a kit that anyone can assemble given time and materials. RepRap is about making self-replicating machines, and making them freely available for the benefit of everyone. is a community project, which means you are welcome to edit most pages on this site, or better yet, create new pages of your own. RepRap was the first of the low-cost 3D printers, and the RepRap Project started the open-source 3D printer revolution. RepRap was voted the most significant 3D-printed object in 2017.

3D Printing: now printing food too 3D Printing: now printing food too TNO demonstrated foodprinting using 3D printing methods during the Food Inspiration Days 2012 (Eindhoven, October 2012) and at the Gastronomy trade fair (Utrecht, November 2012). 3D printing is an innovative manufacturing process whereby an object is built up, layer by layer, from a 3D computer design, using for example, printing technology or lasers. These methods can be used for the production of objects made from a single type of material as well as combinations of materials in which each material is deposited, for instance, by a separate print head. An example of a 3D printing system with several print heads is the PrintValley machine recently developed by TNO. This kind of technology will lead to new types of production systems for the manufacture of complex multi-material products. Food printing offers a range of potential benefits:

Open Book on "Low-cost 3D Printing for Science, Education and Sustainable Development" Low-cost, three-dimensional (3D) desktop printing, although still in its infancy, is rapidly maturing, with seemingly unlimited potential. The hope is that this cutting-edge 3D technology will open new dimensions to science and education, and will make a marked impact in developing countries. This book gives a reasonable, first overview of current research on 3D printing. It aims to inspire curiosity and understanding in young scholars and new generations of scientists to motivate them to start building up their own 3D printing experiences and to explore the huge potential this technology provides –with the final goal of putting learning literally in their hands.

Fabbster Personal 3D Printer 3D-printing for everybody L'impression 3D made in France par Phidias Technologies et Groupe Gorgé Avec le rachat en mai dernier de Phidias Technologies, la société française Groupe Gorgé entend jouer un rôle majeur dans la révolution industrielle de l’impression 3D. A l’occasion de ce rapprochement Phidias Technologies vient d’annoncer la sortie de sa nouvelle gamme d’imprimantes 3D dénommées Prodways. Raphaël Gorgé, CEO de Groupe Gorgé et André –Luc Allanic, fondateur de Phidias Technologies Phidias Technologies est un fabricant français d’imprimantes 3D basées sur la technologie MOVINGLight® qui combine une source de lumière à base de LED à forte puissance et des puces micro-électroniques (DLP). Le processus de fabrication de type DLP utilise une cuve de résine liquide exposée à la lumière depuis un projecteur DLP. Lorsque la matière liquide exposée durcit, le processus se répète couche par couche, exposant le polymère liquide à la lumière. « Nos machines peuvent produire des centaines de petites pièces en quelques heures avec une résolution inférieure à 35 microns.
