Structo 3D printers are the latest to adopt a custom build processor from Materialise

Materialise has extended its bespoke 3D printing solutions to encompass Structo, a Singapore-based manufacturer of 3D printing machines, with the launch of Structo PrintWorks, a customised build processor.

Structo’s Stereolithography printers are billed as industrial-grade 3D printing machines that rely on the company’s patented Liquid Crystal Dynamic Mask Stereolithography (MSLA) technology.

On paper, this allows all of Structo’s family of three 3D printers to be fast with the customised Materialise software looking to advance this even further.

Sustainable materials also help provide protection

Aiming to avoid a chipped mug before the ceramic has even reached the shelves, the Bevel Mug concept is a pulp casting, with the benefits of easy recycling and low manufacturing costs.

The product of Chinese design firm, NANOIN Design, the protective casing also allows some of the encased product’s styling to resonate through the typically unattractive material.

A quick slap of a sticker and the mug is ready for transport, whatever the batch size, as an individual product, while the environment also benefits from the easily degradable materials.

The all electric Faraday Future concept car was one of the big stories from CES 2016

The Faraday Future concept car grabbed headlines at the 2016 CES show, with the company’s ability to design, simulate, and prepare for production coming from a new deal with Dassault Systèmes.

In the car’s development, the electric-car company deployed two industry solutions from the company: Target Zero Defect - an integrated, open development platform, with capabilities to minimise defects and manage complexity - and Smart Safe & Connected - for electrical systems definition and performance validation, and embedded electronic architecture.

“We are taking a user-centric, technology-first approach to vehicle design with the ultimate aim of connecting the automotive experience to the rest of our customers’ life,” said Nick Sampson, senior VP, Product R&D, Faraday Future.
