A new partnership has seen Siemens NX add Materialise’s lattice technology, support structures design, 3D nesting, build tray preparation, and build processors framework technology for additive manufacturing.

The move should eliminate data translation and conversion errors between CAD and print file, and ensure changes to digital product design models are automatically and associatively reflected in the 3D print jobs.

According to Siemens PLM, this will result in greater model accuracy, higher quality and a much faster design to production process.

Materialise World Summit (MWS) is returning from 20 - 21 April, bringing decision makers from a wide range of businesses and industries together to discuss the milestones taking place within 3D printing.

As digital manufacturing is already a reality and 3D printing technology is at the cusp of mainstream manufacturing, this event is set to provoke conversations that its organisers will lead to collaborative innovation.

As usual, the event taps into Materialise’s extensive network of healthcare, industrial and technological businesses, leading to keynotes from the heavyweights of Airbus and GE - but under the surface are some potentially fascinating talks from brands such as Safilo, Deutsche Bahn AG, and ski company Tailored Fits.

MIT summer course will familiarise designer with the digital manufacturing pipeline for additive manufacture

A new five-day course on CAD for additive manufacturing has been launched by MIT for this summer aimed at professionals seeking to speed up and modernise the product design process at their companies.

An introductory course running from 26 - 30 June, Advances in Computer-Aided Design For Manufacturing will be offered through MIT Professional Education, which draws individuals from companies and organisations around the world to campus for professional development programs.

According to the course description, attendees will become familiar with the entire CAD pipeline, from developing a concept to designing a three-dimensional surface or volume, utilising Onshape.

PTC has introduced a new family of products to unify data from enterprise systems and the sensored physical world, and deliver information and insight in context for different users.

Billed as an Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) application, the Kinex suit of products launches with Navigate, which allows stakeholders across a company to access and use product data sourced from multiple systems of record in a simple, modern, role-based interface.

Leveraged alongside PTC’s Windchill PLM system, the Kinex Navigate app breaks down silos in the product lifecycle with universal data access, enabling better product decisions to be made.

McLaren Honda F1 has already found many beneficial and novel uses for its partnership with 3D printing experts Stratasys

Legendary F1 team McLaren Honda opened its doors to DEVELOP3D to showcase the first developments of its four-year partnership with 3D printing experts Stratasys, and it hasn’t wasted anytime.

A full plethora of Stratasys machines have been installed onsite since the announcement in January, leading to new digital manufacturing workflows for a company that produces over 6,000 components a week onsite.

The team estimates that the design of the current car evolves every 14 minutes throughout the entire season, and with time the crucial factor, new methods of tooling for composites, as well as jigs, fixtures and end-use parts that go straight into the cars are being produced at its Woking HQ.

The Adidas Futurecraft 4D features a 3D printed midsole, that will go into mass production later this year

Adidas’ latest Futurecraft initiative has seen it partner with Carbon to produce a 3D printed midsole that is a marked improvement on the brand’s own endeavour just 18 months ago, and which looks to revolutionise its future product development process.

Using Carbon’s CLIP technology, where speed of build allows for an intriguing range of production-grade materials to be printed, the elastomer used for the latest Adidas Futurecraft 4D shoe negates the need to move to injection moulding for final product - allowing the full shape and form benefits of 3D printing to come to the fore.

The development process enabled Adidas to iterate over 50 different lattices for the midsole before landing on the current design - with each iteration produced using the same process and material as the ultimate product.
