DMLS System Builds Using Metal Nanopowders

By:
Fonon Technologies’ 3D Fusion system uses a high-powered laser to fuse together metal nanopowders, layer by layer, to form functional 3D parts.

System Offers Industrial-Sized 3D Printing

By:
Cincinnati Inc.’s Big Area Additive Manufacturing (BAAM) system uses the chassis, drives and control of the company’s laser cutting system as the base, and extrudes hot thermoplastic to build parts, layer by layer.

Clear Resin Suited for DLP Applications

By:
Royal DSM offers a photopolymer-based printing material designed for 3D printers that incorporate LED and digital light processing (DLP) technology and therefore operate at higher wavelengths, including 365 nm.

Large-Format System Prints Parts Faster

By:
D Systems’ ProX 950 stereolithography printer is equipped with its PolyRay print head technology, designed to manufacture parts as much as 10 times faster than other 3D printers.

3D Modeling Software Adds STL Editing Functionality

By:
SpaceClaim Engineer's STL Prep for 3D Printing function can be used to analyze and clean intersections; ensure that the model is watertight; and repair inverted normals, intersecting facets and other issues that can cause print failures.
