Mark Two Carbon Fiber 3D Printer Unveiled by MarkForged

By Michael Molitch-Hou

Just two years ago, MarkForged made its big debut at SolidWorks with the Mark One 3D printer, the only machine capable of 3D printing reinforced composite parts with continuous carbon fiber.  While other desktop printers might 3D print with carbon fiber filament, made up of chopped carbon fiber particles, MarkForged invented a method for feeding continuous carbon fiber into 3D printed components, yielding plastic parts with the strength of aluminum. Now, at SolidWorks this year, the company, founded by MIT engineer Greg Mark, has unveiled the next generation of its one-of-a-kind machine, the Mark Two.…

Puris & ExOne 3D Print Largest Complex Titanium Part for Commercial Use

Puris & ExOne 3D Print Largest Complex Titanium Part for Commercial Use

By Davide Sher

Due in part to a rapid increase in competitors to meet the rapidly growing demand of larger metal part manufacturers, metal 3D printing is getting bigger and faster. Puris, a US-based leading producer of titanium powder for additive manufacturing, collaborated with ExOne to produce the largest complex, 3D-printed titanium part for commercial use ever 3D printed.
“There is a lot of activity in this arena and larger parts have been printed, but we believe this is the largest complex titanium part to be printed to date,” said Puris’ CEO Craig Kirsch.…

3DPrinterOS Announces Private 3D Printing Cloud at CES 2016

3DPrinterOS Announces Private 3D Printing Cloud at CES 2016

By Davide Sher

3DPrinterOS was created as an easy to use and accessible cloud platform to manage and run networked and remote 3D printers, as well as a system for the secure handling of digital 3D files. This accessibility – along with file safety – is now proving to be an asset for those enterprise customers that need to implement a secure manufacturing platform, remotely accessible by large numbers of employees across the globe.
As CEO John Dogru, a former Lead Automated Manufacturing Engineer at Dell, clarified, 3DPritnerOS can be accessed at the click of a button and it is proven to work through 1000s of hours of testing worldwide.…

3D Systems Displays New ProX DMP 320 Metal 3D Printer at CES 2016

By Michael Molitch-Hou

After the acquisition of Phenix Systems, 3D Systems has been slow to roll out its metal 3D printing technology, an issue raised in a class action lawsuit against the company. Nevertheless, the company has been making progress and, today, 3D Systems announced the availability of their newest system, the ProX DMP 320.

The ProX DMP 320 is designed to be a high precision, high throughput laser sintering metal 3D printer capable of handling itanium, stainless steel, and nickel super alloy. Built with exchangeable manufacturing modules, the ProX DMP 320 is meant to allow for quick material change. …

XYZprinting Brings Arsenal of New 3D Printers to CES 2016

XYZprinting Brings Arsenal of New 3D Printers to CES 2016

By Michael Molitch-Hou

While in Taiwan, I had the opportunity to see the headquarters of the biggest consumer 3D printer company in the world, XYZprinting.  Seeing the New Kinpo Group subsidiary first-hand gave me the opportunity to learn a great deal about how the XYZ brand was able to explode overnight (covered in a separate post), but I was also able to catch wind of some exciting news ahead of CES 2016.  Among the many products that XYZprinting has brought to CES this year are a new, sub-$300 3D printer, a desktop FDM machine capable of mixing colors, and a full-color, binder jet 3D printer.…

Davide Sher’s Top 2015 3D Printing Applications

Davide Sher’s Top 2015 3D Printing Applications

By Davide Sher

I think that, until the end of 2014, it was still theoretically possible to discuss the top 5 3D printing innovations of the year. Today, I don’t find that possible any longer. There are just way too many things happening in the 3D printing industry and the crazy part is that we are still, really, at the very beginning. Only a couple of years have passed since the mass public discovered that 3D printing exists and, yet, this technology is now at the forefront in just about every industrial, professional, and artisan sector of manufacturing.…
