One hundred meters beneath the mountains of Switzerland and France sits the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) – the world’s largest and most powerful particle accelerator ever built. This impressive construction is used by the European Organization for … [Read more...] about 3D printed titanium cool-bars help advance particle detection science
The use of 3D printing in architecture is not a focus of this website. Occasionally, though, an interesting story comes along that expands the use of 3D printing and that can maybe ignite ideas in others. According to Alberto T. Estevez founder … [Read more...] about How 3D printing can merge biological and digital techniques in architecture
Today’s volatile market – no matter the industry – wreaks havoc on even the best inventory strategies. On-demand manufacturing, though, gives engineers a way to use their inventory model to create the parts they need, when they need them. No more … [Read more...] about Meet the need for speed and market volatility with on-demand manufacturing
Dr. Natalie Rudolph, Vice President of Research and Development, AREVO For almost a decade now, Additive Manufacturing (AM) has been one of the fastest growing areas in manufacturing. This growth has resulted in significant efforts in material and … [Read more...] about What is polymer directed energy deposition (DED) for 3D printing and how can it benefit you?
3D printing/additive manufacturing is only one source of plastic pollution in our ecosystem. The engineers at GoEngineer offer some suggestions on dealing with unwanted plastic from 3D printing as well as from other sources.
