Fully additive: Towards 3D Printed Mechatronic Systems – Part II

Rapidly maturing processing technologies are also allowing 3D Printing to increasingly compete on an economic basis and the first low volume manufacturing applications are emerging. Adding electronics functionality to 3D Printed parts to produce complete mechatronic systems is the next logical step in this evolution.

IKEA to launch mass produced 3D printed collection

IKEA was already taking steps into the world of 3D printing and is going to step it up with mass produced 3D printed objects. The collection is called OMEDELBAR, which is Swedish for immediate, direct (without intermediary or middle man). IKEA is collaborating on this project with Bea Åkerlund, stylist of Lady Gaga and Beyoncé.
