As 3D printing has become more and more mainstream, the traditional resource and skills barriers for manufacturing are all but vanishing. This trend is changing the very face of design. For the first time, producing complex products is no more difficult, expensive, or time-consuming than making simpler objects. 3D printing a block with holes, notches, [...]

A Doctor’s Perspective on the Future of 3D Printing in Hospitals A ground breaking investigative trial called 3D Hearts Enabling a Randomized Trial (3DHEART) recently began enrollment. This initiative is a clinical study to better understand the impact of 3D printed heart models for pre-operative planning for pediatric heart surgery We recently conducted an interview [...]
https://cimquesttv.wistia.com/medias/hzhvb78zn5?embedType=async&videoFoam=true&videoWidth=640 Siemens Mobility has developed an on-demand production model, allowing them to 3D print end-use parts for trains, vehicles, and other infrastructure. These parts comply with flame, smoke, and toxicity provisions, serving as lightweight alternatives to conventional parts.
As the adoption of additive manufacturing processes continues to take hold in aviation, with leaders like Airbus incorporating hundreds of printed parts on their new generation aircraft, and Boeing production lines, we’re starting to recognize a next level of maturity in how regulations are being implemented to accommodate for these changes. Airline carriers are beginning [...]
Think about the last time you took a commercial flight. What are some of the distinct things you remember about the aircraft cabin? If you could, how would you change some of the design elements using 3D printing technologies? The Paris Airshow recently took place and Stratasys was there to exhibit some of the new [...]
There’s a revolutionary new technology in 3D printing called the Stratasys Infinite Build. 3D printing has provided a means to produce highly accurate parts in a variety of build sizes. With production machines like the Fortus 900 and Objet 1000, industry leaders in both aerospace and automotive have been able to experiment with increasingly larger [...]
Reprint from www.additivemanufacturing Adding an FDM 3D printer enabled a producer of subassemblies for aircraft to bypass traditional tooling solutions on many custom tools and bring much of this work in-house. Cimquest customer, CPI Aerostructures was in a good position in 2013. After years as a small business providing subassemblies almost exclusively for military aircraft, [...]
