Low cost SLS machine maker Norge Systems is now part of the the growing Groupe Gorgé portfolio

French engineering company Groupe Gorgé has made further 3D printing acquisitions, adding leading French service bureau Initial, and UK low-cost SLS machine designers Norge Systems to its portfolio.

The company acquired Prodways in 2013, which has since increased its range of SLA machines using its MovingLight technology, and looks set to continue growing its 3D printing technology options.

“The operational, technical and business success of Prodways’ teams have helped our Group to gain greater perspective of a market with huge potential,” said Raphael Gorgé, chairman and CEO of Groupe Gorgé.

Bass-blasting fire - a technology that needs design to help it reach its potential

Like blowing out a candle, the bass-tube fire extinguisher uses air vibrations to put out the flames

My granddad always used to say ‘fight fire with fire’, which is what got him kicked out of the fire service… But if only he’d thought of turning up the low range on his Perry Como records.

Two engineers from George Mason University have devised a way to blow out flames using a bass tube, impressive enough in a YouTube video, but something with epic potential should they hook up with some industrial designers.

Viet Tran and Seth Robertson are already aware of the next step, suggesting that it could be installed in a cooker hood over a stove, or even operated by fire fighting drone squads to tackle forest fires.

We caught up with new SolidWorks CEO Gian Paolo Bassi after SolidWorks World, and before his appearance at DEVELOP3D LIVE

While at SolidWorks World, we were lucky enough to wrestle new SolidWorks CEO Gian Paolo Bassi away from the crowds for a quick one-to one.

We chatted about his first SWW as CEO, the newly announced SolidWorks Industrial Design software (SW-ID), and his forthcoming appearance at DEVELOP3D LIVE in the UK.

“It’s going to be fun, yeah?!” opened GPB to this last topic. Given the interview that follows, we can guarantee that you’re not going to want to miss him on stage at DEVELOP3D LIVE on 26 March.

3D printing plays direct role in assembly tools for Volvo

Volvo Trucks is using 3D printed tools to help make the assembly of vehicle parts, like its engines, faster, cheaper and more flexible

Designing tools for assembling products is a full-time hassle in itself - hence why those with thousands of components to piece together are looking to 3D printing to speed up the process.

Volvo Trucks’ engine assembly plant in Lyon, France (it makes parts for Renault Trucks too, with the Swedes having bought it a while back), is using Stratasys’ Fortus 3D printers to build jigs and fixtures for the assembly line staff, reducing the time it takes from 36 days to two days.

The speed comes as a factor of not having to build these in metal, which also means that it’s cheaper too - especially where customised or small quantities of tools are needed.

Nvidia says automotive manufacturers will be early adopters

Nvidia is getting serious about interactive, physically-based rendering, which it delivers through its GPU-accelerated rendering software Iray.

The big news coming out of Nvidia’s GTC conference today is that Iray will be made available for much wider range of 3D tools.

Rhino, Cinema 4D, Revit, Siemens NX, 3ds Max and Maya will all support Iray or Iray+ (developed by LightWork Design) this year through plug-ins or direct integration.
