The 10,000 year old ‘Cheddar Man’, the oldest almost complete skeleton of our species, Homo sapiens, ever found in Britain, has been brought to life for a new television documentary using the latest 3D technology.

Using a Mesolithic skeleton and its DNA, discovered in 1903 at Gough’s Cave in Cheddar Gorge, Somerset, scientists as well as reconstruction experts Kennis & Kennis have rendered a physical model from a base of 3D scanning and 3D printing technologies.

The original skull was 3D scanned to capture the full detail as an STL file, before Kennis & Kennis printed the skull using their in-house 3D printer, before building up clay to produce the lifelike representation.

External GPU plugs into a laptop over Thunderbolt 3

At SolidWorks World (SWW) last week AMD demonstrated an enhanced version of its XConnect technology that allows users of pro 3D applications to boost the graphics performance of a laptop or mobile workstation by plugging in an external desktop GPU.

AMD’s demo centred on a Dell Precision 7520 mobile workstation with built in entry-level AMD Radeon Pro WX 4130 GPU. The 15-inch laptop was shown working with an ultra-high-end AMD Radeon Pro WX 9100 GPU, housed in a Sonnet eGFX Breakaway Box and connected over Thunderbolt 3.

A company with over 30 years experience of developing machine tools is turning its attention to additive manufacturing as it becomes a HP 3D printing reseller.

XYZ Machine Tools believes HP’s Jet Fusion 3D printing solutions can work alongside conventional metalcutting technology to produce a seamless design to manufacturing process, and has been selected as an official reseller, with the company stating that 3D printing is ‘a perfect addition’ to the machine tools it currently offers.

“We have looked at 3D printing as a technology solution for a while, but we wanted to be convinced about its ability to deliver production level quantities in a time efficient and cost-effective way,” said XYZ Machine Tools managing director Nigel Atherton.
