Virtual Reality and 3D immersive solutions integrator, Antycip Simulation, has announced its new UK demo centre in its Adderbury office, to help support its UK and international customers by adding product demonstration, modelling, analysis and laboratory facility capabilities.

Created in partnership with projector manufacturer Barco, The Hub is equipped with a single face VR Cave, a power wall and a spherical display, and follows the launch of a similar facility near Milan, Italy.

Antycip Simulation suggests that The Hub will help it address the growing requirement for VR technologies in the design, academic and engineering sectors, with the latest display solutions complemented by a broad portfolio of software solutions for simulation, analysis and digital rendering.

Emirates looking to SLS for on-board aircraft parts

For many years now, we’ve been told of how aircraft manufacturers are using 3D printing technology but it’s not often that you get a specific user story that details where and how the technology is being used.

A couple of weeks ago, Emirates issued a press release (interesting that it didn’t come through a vendor), detailing how it is using Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) for in-cabin display surrounds as well as conducting trials with the same for cabin air vent grills.

Emirates has worked with 3D Systems and with UUDS, a European aviation engineering and certification office and services provider, to print the first batch of video monitor shrouds using 3D Systems’ Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) technology platform. The material used to print Emirates’ monitor shrouds is a new thermoplastic developed from 3D Systems (Duraform ProX FR1200) which has both the surface quality and the flammability resistance required for commercial aerospace business applications.

The 3D printed costumes keeps the same shape and form of traditional costumes but with a contemporary aesthetic

Bringing together 3D printing with traditional Eastern pleating, PhD researchers from the Royal College of Art have created pioneering costumes for Beijing Opera performers.

The 3D printed parts have been printed using an SLS (selective laser sintering) technique from 3D printers Sinterit. This Sinterit Lisa machine has allowed for pleated and woven garments that are as soft and pliable as textiles.  

The costumes were designed using a parametric algorithm to translate a traditional pleating structure which can be applied to print the parts.
