    What is 3D Printing? Is It The “Holy Grail” of Manufacturing?

    in News

    2/24/15 – “The Holy Grail” of manufacturing could be here within this century, says futurist Michio Kaku. The current trends involving mass customisation and 3D printing are expected to accelerate. Joining us to discuss 3D printing are Prof. Elizabeth Lennon PhD and Peter Lindner PhD of Manhattan College.


    Topics covered will be basic 3D printing processes (extrusion vs. stereo-lithography), industrial and personal 3D printing systems, and the perspective impact in different sectors (healthcare, advanced specially devices, mass produced items).

    S3-E19 3D Printing, Is it the Key to Making Manufacturing in America Grow Again?

    in News

    3/24/15 – 3D Printing has been around for more than 25 years, but how is it being used in manufacturing? How can it be used? Special Guest Terry Wohlers, President of Wohlers Associates Inc. joins us at MFG Talk Radio to discuss new developments and trends in rapid product development and additive manufacturing. In their 28 year history, the Colorado-based independent consulting firm has provided advice to 150 companies in the investment community, most being institutional investors that represent mutual funds, hedge funds, and private equity valued at billions of dollars. In addition to these companies, Wohlers Associates’ past work has involved over 240 client organizations in 24 countries around the world.


    Rick Lucas, Chief Technology Officer at ExOne will be on hand to talk about two areas where 3D Printing is currently useful: R&D rapid prototyping and replacement parts. Gain a sense of when/if 3D Printing will become a production line volume technology or will it be limited to R&D and replacement parts. 3D Printing will impact manufacturing in many ways – learn how it might evolve in your shop.

    3D printing & community broadband will change the world! Are you ready?

    in Internet

    Feetz don't fail me now! Chattanooga this week unveiled several awe-inspiring 3D applications that development teams created this summer on the city's gig network. As broadband champions get their brains wrapped around 3D printing and the technology's potential benefits, it's immediately clear why your broadband plan should include 3D printing apps. Two companies from Demo Day give you an eye-opening peek at the future. 


    Feetz


    This is is a 3D printing manufacturer and retailer that creates custom-fit footwear for consumers of all shoe sizes. Using patented algorithms and snapshots from the customer’s phone, Feetz integrates custom sizing measurements with individual design preferences to bring comfort, fit and style into each pair of hyper-customized shoes.


    3DOps


    These folks have created a 3D printing manufacturer that provides contract medical devices for pre-surgical planning. Using patient-specific data,  the company creates anatomical 3D models that enable surgeons to plan procedures before operating on patients.

    3D Printing Has Arrived! Now You Can Print Almost Anything!

    in Science

    Welcome to the Return of Your Community Science Class, bringing to you 30 Minutes of Science in the Afternoon!  Our upcoming program explores 3D printing and its implications for our lives.  What does it mean to be able to print almost anything?  What does it mean for medicine and healing that organs can now be printed from a scaffold with stem cells?  What about the 3D printed complete and fully operational gun called The Liberator that was released on May 3rd -- just a few weeks ago?  Join us as we explore the implications of this life altering technology.

    Design for Direct Manufacturing with 3D Printing

    in Technology

    The growth of 3D printing (additive manufacturing) for production is freeing design engineers from past constraints and opening up new, great possibilities. With new materials and processes, entirely new product configurations are now possible. Or, products can be reduced from unwieldy assemblies to singular -- yet more functional -- parts, and this is now financially viable. This session will open your mind with insights and examples on designing for 3D printing from the start of the product development process.

    3D Printing Materials for Direct Manufacturing

    in Technology

    Manufacturing demands the right materials for product performance. Can 3D printing (additive manufacturing) deliver? Get a fast but comprehensive brief on what materials are now available in 3D printing – the list is growing fast! We’ll also make sure you know what to consider and touch on standards that are often used to qualify a material for an application. While this session addresses the criteria needed to make decisions today, there will also be discussion of an advanced approach that is available but rarely used.

    When to Use 3D Printing for Direct Manufacturing

    in Technology

    3D printing is now a common tool for design and testing, but the next frontier is manufacturing. The first step is to understand when it’s right for manufacturing. We’ll review basic principles regarding when to opt for 3D printing (additive manufacturing) for production runs. We’ll look at examples of success that underscore the broad principles. And we’ll include an analysis of 3D printing versus plastic molding in terms or cost, speed and quality. This session is for making manufacturing decisions today.
