Black Country Atelier teaches children about design through 3D CAD and 3D printing, but is seeing a rise in school teachers needing training

When stood at our fine DEVELOP3D trade stand at the TCT Live show last week we couldn’t fail to notice* Black County Atelier’s (BCA) workshop for teaching local children about 3D CAD and 3D Printing.

Through similar workshops at the V&A museum, Barbican Centre, and the Big Bang education show it has taught over 10,000 people - not just kids, as the interesting part is that demand for its work is also coming from adults.

Over the last three months alone it has taught over 20 teachers, from hour long taster sessions at workshop events to courses covering one term, or two year courses comes loaded with a full qualification.

A piece of film noir to get you interested in a piece of modern jewellery design

The context of this HeartBeat video may be lighthearted, but it successfully demonstrates the viability of precious metal additive manufacturing, with a bit of ‘personally beaten up’ customisation.

HeartBeat is a design by product artist Lionel T Dean, which has been scanned and reverse engineered with the help of Delcam and then 3D printed in 18kt gold.

The video produced to showcase the project is not your typical industrial process fodder: you’d never guess that its purpose is to demonstrate cutting-edge technology.

Space: Manufacturing for up in the stars gets lighter with every design

Sentinel-5 Precursor is scheduled for launch in 2016 to monitor the atmosphere from polar orbit. The satellite will carry the Tropospheric Ozone Monitoring Instrument, Tropomi, which has parts redesigned to benefit from 3D printing

The international space agencies are all operating at high speed to nail down suitable new designs to leverage 3D printing.

The process might not be the new Industrial Revolution, but is definitely at the heart of the new space race as different agencies, suppliers and subsidiaries all looking to a future of parts being built by automated printers in space as we jet off to another galaxy.

Yet, for the time being, getting things off the ground for research is the priority, and weight saving measures are at the top of the list - not only are agencies looking to benefit from the costs of low run production parts, but in terms of shaving off weight and adding material strengths.
