Cimquest will be hosting an interactive 3D Printing Open House featuring the HP Multi Jet Fusion Technology. Come take a look under the hood of our new Jet Fusion 4200 and experience the printing process from start to finish. We’ll show you how you can make production quality parts at a greater speed and lower [...]
Reverse Engineering has many purposes, one of them being to recreate parts or components that are no longer manufactured. With straight-forward mechanical components, this can be accomplished with a variety of measuring instruments. This task can quickly become more complex though, if the part takes on more of a freeform or ergonomic shape. To serve [...]

HP is offering an informational 3D printing webinar tomorrow afternoon - The Advantages of Designing for MJF Instead of Injection Molding. During this webinar, they will discuss how designing for MJF can optimize costs, free the engineer of constraints imposed by injection molding, and accelerate the development process through delivering production quality parts at the [...]
3D printing conceptual models is a great way to save time and money early on in the development stage. Engineers can use printers as a sketch pad to build and test out various iterations, and determine necessary adjustments to improve the design. Functional parts take prototyping to the next level, allowing engineers to test models [...]
Reprint from www.formlabs.com Today, the world’s largest lens is located in a lighthouse on Oahu, Hawaii. The Fresnel lens at Makapu’u Point, 12 feet tall, 8 feet wide, and painstakingly crafted out of glass, has held the title since 1893. This coming Valentine’s Day, the title will transition to a new lens: a 10-by-12-foot Fresnel [...]

There is an interesting new option in the linking parameters for Mill toolpaths in Mastercam 2018. In previous versions there were only two options available on this page – Absolute and Incremental. Now, in 2018, a new option called Associative Linking has been added which takes full advantage of the intelligence built right into the [...]
