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.…

New Ceramic 3D Printing Method Able to Withstand over 2,500°F

New Ceramic 3D Printing Method Able to Withstand over 2,500°F

By Tyler Koslow

Throughout the brief and ever-shifting history of ceramic-based 3D printing, many of the field’s innovators have found success with printing in ceramic material by using a FDM-like process, which works by building up the design layer by layer. When it comes to high-performance ceramics, however, companies like Lithoz and Prodways use photopolymerization processes. Malibu, California-based HRL Laboratories has taken this to a whole new level, using their stereolithography-like approach to 3D print ceramic materials with amazing industrial properties. The development and benefits behind this newly derived ceramic 3D printing method were first detailed in the academic journal Science, and is being touted as a new process that can definitely withstand the heat.…

Voxel8 3D Prints the ‘Fun’ in ‘Functional’ at CES 2016

Voxel8 3D Prints the ‘Fun’ in ‘Functional’ at CES 2016

By Tyler Koslow

When Voxel8, the 3D printing company started by Harvard Professor Jennifer Lewis (check out our interview with Professor Lewis here), showed up at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in 2015, they quickly won over the hearts of those looking to 3D print with a functional purpose, and was named by some as one of the top ideas displayed at the entire trade show. The Voxel8 team was able to steal last year’s show with their multi-material 3D printing demonstrations, showcasing their conductive printing ink and printed electronics, creating functional objects fresh off of their advanced 3D printers.…
