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

Published 20 March 2015

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.

Argos unwittingly sets out to democratise 3D printing via the nation’s housing estates

Some lovingly created jewellery for the mother of your sixth kid

Argos has blown us away with what it is calling “a collection of inspirational jewellery”, whereby customers can customise and 3D print their nightmarishly twee creations.

The catalogue of consumer dreams is home to renown jewelers Elizabeth Duke, familiar to everyone that owns a sovereign ring with the words ‘Mum’ stamped into it, so where else better to merge high technology with questionable lifestyle choices?

The technology itself is the rather nice configurator from Digital Forming, which allows customers to select accessories from a range of 10 items, and add their own personal touches [“I luv u Shazza” for instance], before producing a questionable render of the product, forming the front end of the retail experience.

Finally launched, Carbon3D’s CLIP 3D printing technology has everyone excited

Carbon3D has finally emerged from the shadows to launch its take on polymer-based 3D printing - and it’s fast, like really fast.

Comparative test figures announced by Carbon3D show it printing the same model it takes over 3 hours to print on an SLA machine, taking less than 7 minutes to build using its technology.

Its Continuous Liquid Interface Production technology (CLIP) harnesses light and oxygen to continuously ‘grow’ objects from a pool of resin instead of printing them layer-by-layer.
