I would like to look back at one of the first ‘event-in-events’ that 3D fab+print organised last year: the touchpoint at drupa 2016 in Düsseldorf, Germany. drupa is an 11-day (!) trade show that attracts visitors from all around the globe and has target groups from a wide variety of industries.
For 3D printing professionals, additively manufacturing plastics and polymers is nothing new. For professionals in the plastics and polymers industry however, there is still...
On Monday, November 13, the very first AM Seminar at MEDICA / COMPAMED was held. Five industry professionals spoke about 3D printing relevant to the medical world and the Seminar was concluded with a lively discussion.
During the premiere of ‘Farewell My Concubine’ – a play of the Beijing Opera, the actors will perform in costumes printed using the Sinterit Lisa printer taking advantage of the 3D SLS technology. PhD candidates in the famous London Royal College of Art, Mingjing Lin and Tsai-Chun Huang, in terms of the Fold the Inter-fashionality project, have combined new technology with traditional craftsmanship.
voxeljet has officially launched its new High Speed Sintering (HSS) technology. HSS is a physical binder-jetting process that allows the tool-less production of functional prototypes as well as final consumer parts.
GE and Concept Laser lay the foundation for a new facility in Lichtenfels, Germany. In the future, the 3D Campus will unite research and development along with production, service, and logistics.
Solvay, a leading global supplier of specialty polymers, has invited university students from around the world to compete in its Additive Manufacturing Cup by 3D printing complex shapes using the company’s KetaSpire® polyetheretherketone (PEEK) filaments.
MIT engineers have devised a 3-D printing technique that uses a new kind of ink made from genetically programmed living cells.
Adam Page from Smithers Pira talks briefly about the exciting growth area.
Now that drupa 2016 is behind us (May 31st – June 10th , Düsseldorf, Germany), we can look back on this year’s event as being quite exceptional on a large number of fronts, and particularly with regard to the role of the 3D fab+print touchpoint there.
