Get it right, from the start – Presented by Orlando Sardaro, Design8, at the 3D Printing Design & Engineering Conference, on April 17, 2018, at Brightlands Chemelot Campus, Geleen, The Netherlands. Read the interview
Do you start your design with a pencil on a piece of paper… ? Do you start your design in 2D or 3D on a computer screen… ? Are you the appropriate one to start the design process at all… ? Instead of analysing whether you’ve done a good job, let’s analyse first and make sure you get it right, from the start. Continue reading “Get it right, from the start – Presented by Orlando Sardaro, Design8”

Octobot is the first autonomous, entirely soft robot. Powered by a chemical reaction controlled by microfluidics, 3D-printed ‘octobot’ has no electronics.
A team of Harvard University researchers with expertise in 3D printing, mechanical engineering, and microfluidics has demonstrated the first autonomous, untethered, entirely soft robot. This small, 3D-printed robot — nicknamed the octobot — could pave the way for a new generation of completely soft, autonomous machines. Continue reading “Powered by a chemical reaction controlled by microfluidics, 3D-printed ‘octobot’ has no electronics (Video)”
Expansion of 3D printing operations planned by UPS (United Parcel Service). They plan to expand its 3D printing service to Asia and Europe, the U.S. shipping company has told Reuters, in a bid to fully embrace and get ahead of a trend that threatens to eat away a small but lucrative part of its business.
Aside from its main package delivery service, United Parcel Service gets an undisclosed portion of its revenue from storing and shipping parts for manufactures. If those customers were to switch to 3D printing their own parts, that business would face a drastic reduction. Continue reading “Expansion of 3D printing operations planned by UPS”
3D printing brings video game characters to life.
More fun, improved digital literacy skills, and a better mix between ‘old-school’ playing and online games. According to researchers from KU Leuven and iMinds, toys that combine online and offline elements offer many exciting possibilities for young children – and their parents. Continue reading “3D printing brings video game characters to life”
You may have heard of 3D-printing pens before: devices like the 3Doodler which turn plastic filaments into a gel that hardens in the air — letting users create impressive freehand sculptures in the process. Continue reading “3D-printing pen works by recycling household plastic waste (Video)”
The next step in 3D printing could be something called mobile manufacturing. Siemens researchers in Princeton, New Jersey have developed prototype spider-like robots that can work collaboratively to print structures and surfaces, thus potentially accelerating production of large-scale, complex structures such as the fuselages of planes and the hulls of ships. Continue reading “Meet SiSpis, a new army of robot spiders equipped with artificial intelligence and 3D printing nozzles”

Freedom of design is perhaps the most important benefit of 3D printing or additive manufacturing. Where traditional supply chains evolve to supply networks the link between initial design and final supply gets more complex. Design for Supply Chain offers a solution to unlock the full potential of additive manufacturing. This structured step-by-step methodology addresses supply chain aspects in the early stage of design. It is a proven tool enabling effective decision making and maximizing smart customization opportunities.
