Lithoz ceramic 3D printers have received investment from EOS’ founder and CEO, boosting the chances of scaling this technology

Lithoz, the TU Vienna spin-off company specialising in high performance ceramic 3D printing, has announced that EOS’ founder and 3D printing angel investor has invested in the company.

Dr. Hans J. Langer, in his role as founder and CEO of EOS, made the company a world leader in the field of laser sintering. Although no mention of the amount of investment has been made, his participation in Lithoz alone underlines the high potential of its technology.

Lithoz’s patented technology is Lithography based Ceramic Manufacturing (LCM)-process, using LED technology to build directly in a number of ceramic materials.

The Rolo road bike frame, at 710g, claims to be the lightest and stiffest in the world

Rolo Bikes has unveiled its results of a joint development project with Altair, producing a road cycle weighing in at a featherweight 710g.

Using Altair’s HyperWorks Suite, Rolo’s engineers took the design through a process of optimisation and virtual testing with the goal of achieving world leading levels of performance for weight, stiffness and comfort for a bicycle frame.

Beginning with a carbon fibre frame of 829g, by the end of the optimisation process the Rolo frame weighed just 710g, the company showcasing its work at the Euro Bike trade show.

Featuring some of the most interesting 3D printing users, the 3D Printshow returns to London

If there’s one thing that can shake off the ‘first of the month blues’ its that there’s the zippity return of the 3D Printshow to London’s fair streets, taking over Old Billingsgate from 4 - 6 September.

Yes, it’s a consumer-packed desktop-FDM-printer-athon. Yes, it will be full of wide-eyed, awestruck newbies and school trips. Yes, you probably won’t find anything new for the professional market. But, and it’s a big but, it will showcase a lot of varied and exciting works - usually in the art and fashion spheres - that might inspire some exciting new ideas of how to use the technology.

We’ll be there exactly for this reason, so here’s five things we recommend you check out during your visit:

The double height Nvidia Quadro K5200 nestled inside our Scan 3XS GW-HT10 test machine

Last month we put the Nvidia Quadro K2200 (4GB) through its paces, one of five new professional GPUs launched by Nvidia at Siggraph in August. But this was only the first part of the story and we’ve now emerged from our labs to share results for the high-end Quadro K4200 (4GB) and Quadro K5200 (8GB).

While performance of the Quadro K2200 in DS SolidWorks and PTC Creo was promising, if you render your model with real time visual effects such as RealView and Ambient Occlusion then the Quadro K4200 and K5200 should take things up to a whole new level. And, of course, these cards should be ideal for dedicated 3D viz apps like Showcase, 3ds Max, and Maya.
