Advanced lattice creation for footwear production by AM

Footprint 3D is able to create lattice structures from original CAD files quickly using Simpleware’s lattice generation tools. This way, some common deficiencies found in the footwear industry – such as fit and the environmental impact of waste created in traditional molding processes – are tackled.

Product Liability in 3D Printing Processes – final part

This is the fourth and final part of the article that Klaus M. Brisch, LL.M. and Marco Müller-ter Jung, LL.M. – both lawyers with DWF Law in Germany – wrote for 3D fab+print about product liability in the field of additive manufacturing. Did you miss (any one of) the previous parts? Here you can read part one, part two and part three.

3D fab+print Additive Manufacturing Seminar at COMPAMED / MEDICA 2017

On November 13, the first day of MEDICA 2017, there will be an afternoon Seminar dedicated to Additive Manufacturing for medical applications, organized by 3D fab+print.
Outstanding functionality and ease of use will be the trademarks of the new inv3nt xtraM large-scale 3D printer.

The inv3nt principle: Large object printing made easy!

Developer Jochen Keuschnig has complete confidence in the inv3nt large-scale 3D printers: "Not everyone can ‘do big‘. When it comes to 3D printing, a tenth of a millimetre can make all the difference! Various elements in 3D printers frequently cause problems. Thanks to our experience in mechanical engineering, we are often in a position to solve them.”

Product Liability in 3D Printing Processes – part two

One basic condition for understanding the special requirements of product liability in the field of 3D printing is a good understanding of the term ‘product’ as well as the existing liability system. The term ‘product liability’ refers to a manufacturer’s liability for damages that are caused by a product that was produced by the manufacturer.

For twenty years, O.R. Lasertechnologie GmbH from Dieburg, Germany, has been manufacturing systems for laser deposition welding, and by now, they also offer a powderbed system. In this interview by Peter Trechow from VDMA Germany (the German Additive Manufacturing Association), manager Uri Resnik explains O.R. Lasertechnologie's target users and fields of application.
Product Liability in 3D Printing Processes – part one

Product Liability in 3D Printing Processes – part one

In this new article for 3D fab+print, the authors concentrate on the subject of product liability in the field of additive manufacturing. They tell about how within the production process, errors can occur at many stages, e.g. when using a faulty file, incompatible raw material or incorrect settings on the 3D printer. This is part one of three.

3D printing titanium in aerospace

Most activity in the titanium metal industry is being driven by increased demand from the aerospace industry. As jet engines burn at ever higher temperatures to improve speed and efficiency, titanium use will increase. Its use in airframes will be driven largely by increased use of CFCs.
