GARAIA organiza el evento TUMAKER: El made in Euskadi de la fabricación aditiva y Netflix de la impresión 3D.

En la jornada el Consejero Delegado de Tumaker, Jon Bengoetxea, e Ignacio Rocchetti, Senior partner y responsable del  proyecto Tumaker de Loop, explicarán cómo la compañía, 100% made in Euskadi y líder estatal en implantaciones de máquinas 3D de gran formato, desarrolla proyectos de fabricación aditiva (impresión 3D aplicada a procesos productivos o a la Industria 4.0) en empresas como el Grupo Antolín, El Pozo, Boeing, Bosch, Mercedes, Gamesa, Audi, Mo

3D-printed hair created by MIT scientists a breakthrough for wig-making industry.

Scientists have discovered a way of 3D-printing hair, in what's being hailed as a huge leap forward for 3D printing technology. Researchers at MIT's Media Lab have developed software that enables them to print thousands of hair-like structures onto a surface in mere minutes, opening up new possibilities in sensing, adhesion and actuation technologies.

Israeli cos develop 3D bioprinter for stem cells.

Israeli 3D print electronics developer Nano Dimension Ltd. (Nasdaq: NNDM; TASE: NNDM) today announced that it has successfully lab-tested a proof of concept 3D Bioprinter for stem cells. The trial was conducted in collaboration with Haifa-based Accelta Ltd., which that has developed proprietary technologies for the unique production of high quality media, stem cells, progenitors and differentiated cells for drug discovery, regenerative medicine and research.

The feasibility study confirmed that the combined know-how and technologies of the companies enabled printing of viable stem cells using an adapted 3D printer.

HP vuelve al negocio de las impresoras 3D con sello español.

HP entra de nuevo en el negocio de las impresoras 3D. Tras abandonarlo tiempo atrás, la multinacional ha anunciado hoy en Rapid, la mayor conferencia de fabricación aditiva 3D, celebrada en Orlando (EE UU), que a finales de este año y a principios de 2017 empezará comercializará dos modelos de impresoras 3D enfocadas a sectores industriales para el prototipado rápido y para la fabricación de piezas funcionales.

The Key to Repairing Your Bones May Come Out of a Printer.

Orthopedic surgeons are relying more and more on 3-D printing to build replacements for their patients’ defective or worn out bones.

This year surgeons around the world will implant tens of thousands of 3-D printed replacements parts for hips, knees, ankles, parts of the spine, and even sections of the skull.

Most of them look a lot like their conventionally made titanium counterparts. But the first few 3-D printed implants tailored specifically to an individual’s anatomy may hint at a future in which customized bone replacements are commonplace.

First 3-D-Printed Superconducting Cavity.

The 3-D printing of metal parts promises to revolutionize a wide range of industries. Aircraft carriers, for example, might no longer need to carry spare parts for the myriad aircraft, engines, and weapons systems they carry. Instead, each part could be printed as needed.

The big worry of course is that the mechanical properties of 3-D printed parts might not match those of parts made in other ways, particularly when they are used as critical components, in high-performance jet engines for example.

To that end, materials scientists have spent much time and effort characterizing the mechanical properties of these parts. And consequently, they are now used as customized medical implants, jet engine bearings and for rapid prototyping in the car industry.

La impresión 3-D busca escala industrial.

La impresión tridimensional comienza a aparecer en el horizonte de las cadenas de suministro de múltiples compañías. Entre esos nombres sobresale el de Ford Motor Co. , que experimenta con una nueva forma de impresión 3-D que, según afirma, podría resolver un defecto estructural que ha impedido que la tecnología sea ampliamente adoptada en la manufactura.

The race for the first 3D printed shoe.

Today’s leading athletic footwear companies — including Nike, Adidas, Under Armour, and New Balance — have come to rely on 3D printing to speed up the process of designing and prototyping new shoe designs. Moreover, these companies have been slowly revealing plans for using 3D printing beyond prototyping to print the finished shoes themselves. At the Boston Marathon this week, both New Balance and Under Armour released their first 3D printed shoes, and things seem to be moving fast. Here’s a quick breakdown of who’s in the race and why it matters.

New 3-D Printing Technique Makes Ceramic Parts.

A new way of making these tough materials could be a key step in producing better airplane engines and long-lasting machine parts.

Left: In addition to printing individual parts, the process can yield lattices like this one, which can be flexed and twisted to make more complex shapes or to fit a surface such as an airplane wing.

Ceramics are some of the hardest materials on Earth. They can withstand extreme temperatures, and some are impervious to friction, scratching, and other mechanical stresses that wear out metal and plastic. But it can be difficult to make complex shapes out of the materials.

 

Airplanes Are Getting Lighter Thanks to 3-D-Printed Parts.

Metal 3-D printing, which has been around for nearly two decades, is finally coming into its own as a genuine mass manufacturing technology: sales of machines that print metal objects have risen rapidly as manufacturers, especially in the aerospace industry, gear up for commercial production of additively made parts they’ve been developing for years (see “10 Breakthrough Technologies 2013: Additive Manufacturing”).
