3D printed guitars are on the road for the first time as part of the Klaxons tour which kicked off on Saturday

UK indie rock band Klaxons made a tongue-in-cheek announcement last June that its next tourwould be a ‘3D printed tour’, with everything seen on stage including guitars, amps and lights, created using 3D printing technology.

In terms of the guitars, this dream has become a reality with help from 3D printed guitar company Customuse, which started as an undergraduate project at the University of Sheffield.

The tour began on 25 October in Leeds, and saw individual, customised 3D printed guitars in front of the crowds.

The new cartable resin should burn out cleanly, without ash or residue, capturing crisp, precise details, and smooth surfaces

FormLabs has announced a new family of high-performance functional resins, allowing for the production of castable and flexible parts.

The new resins for the desktop Form 1+ SLA 3D Printer allows for the investment casting of metal parts, as well as the printing of soft, impact-resistant models.

The castable resin is designed to hold fine detail and burn out cleanly, a requirement for investment casting, making it ideal for jewellery, metalwork, and engineering applications.

Grainger & Worrall have received a £1.2m grant, which will be used to continue its future technical innovations

UK metal castings firm Grainger & Worrall (G&W) has been awarded a £1.2m grant to further develop its aerospace component production and development capabilities,

The company, which uses a blend of traditional casting methods and finishings, combined with the latest in 3D printed sand castings, received the boost as part of the government’s Sharing in Growth (SiG) initiative, and will use it to drive continued innovation at its high-precision engineering headquarters.

One of the only independent UK casting business to employ in-house ExOne 3D sand printing and CT scanning technology as part of its rapid prototyping process, G&W is using these technologies to enable projects like fully-machined engine cylinder head development in less than six weeks.
