3D Printed Investment Casting Patterns in Formula One Racing

Renault Sport Formula One Team has been using 3D printing within its engineering workflow since 1998 to bring designs out of minds and into testing without wasting its most precious and limited resource: time. Home to several 3D printing technologies, the team makes significant use of 3D Systems stereolithography (SLA), and has expanded the number of applications this technology serves in parallel with larger growth trends in additive manufacturing.

SOLIDWORKS 2018: the Tools to Unlock Your Design Potential

Making product development more accessible has been SOLIDWORKS’ mission from day one. Access to the right tools at the right time is critical to bringing ideas to market faster, more efficiently, and at a lower cost. More importantly, it’s paramount that SOLIDWORKS provides these design tools on customers’ terms. Users can be more innovative than ever. SOLIDWORKS is committed to matching their enthusiasm with the most powerful and accessible tools in the industry.

Design for metal AM – a beginner’s guide

Additive manufacturing (AM) gives us tremendous freedom to create components with free-form and intricate features, direct from CAD and without the need for expensive tooling. These complex designs would be impractical, if not impossible, to produce conventionally. Additive components are often lighter, more efficient and better adapted to their application.

The days of the traditional machine tool are not numbered

The whole world is talking about 3D printing, additive manufacturing and generative multi-layer construction technologies. Nevertheless, this is a long way from meaning that the classical machine tool is going to be pensioned off. The EMO Hannover 2017 will be showcasing an international banquet of production technology – with alternative processes as the highly auspicious icing on the cake.

The Future of How Things Get Made

As designs become increasingly computable, the ability and ease of making changes grows exponentially. At Autodesk, they are obsessed with harnessing the latest advances in AI to transform the way design works.

Mastercam’s MachiningCloud Connection is Now Available

Mastercam and MachiningCloud jointly announce that with the release of Mastercam 2018, Mastercam is now connected to MachiningCloud, thereby providing Mastercam users access to the cutting tool knowledge and product data available within MachiningCloud.

3D Systems Begins Shipping 3DXpert Software with Direct Metal Printers to Drive Substantial Productivity Gains and Operational Savings

3D Systems announced the immediate bundling of its innovative 3DXpert™ software with all of its direct metal printers to streamline precision metal workflows for customers across applications and industries. The company also announced that 3DXpert is planned to include a new Build Simulation module that allows users to accurately verify and optimize their parts, designs and supports to uncover costly issues before sending parts to print.

Breaking New Ground

Strolling along a sandy beach or through a sun-dappled forest are two of life’s simple pleasures that many of us take for granted. For those confined to wheelchairs, spending time in nature — or even traversing a particularly uneven street — can be difficult or impossible to accomplish, especially without assistance.
