A deal between chemicals giant BASF and Belgian 3D Printing pioneers Materialise will see wide scale testing and further optimisation of BASF’s materials on the machines and within the infrastructure of Materialise.

BASF is expanding its cooperation with Materialise with an investment of $25M, as they work together within the framework of an ‘open business model’ to improve materials and software for various 3D printing technologies and bring them more rapidly to the market.

The need for a greater range of materials to aid market expansion VS The cost of developing materials en masse for a small industry has always been a Catch-22 for the 3D printing industry, so this partnership should prove an interesting development, considering that the deal outlines a focus on ‘applications in the consumer goods sector and in the automotive and aviation industries’.

HP builds 6-core Xeon E3-2100 CPU into entry-level HP Z2 G4 workstation family

The HP Z2 G4 family and (left) the EliteDesk 800 workstation edition.

HP has launched a new range of entry-level, ISV-certified desktop workstations built around the new Intel Xeon E3-2100 processor. The HP Z2 G4 family includes three different form factor models, each offering different levels of graphics performance and expandability – the Z2 Tower G4, the Z2 Small Form Factor (SFF) G4 and the Z2 Mini G4.

The Z2 G4 launch completes (we think, at least) HP’s transition from angular black box to a more modern chassis design with chiselled geometry. All HP Z workstations, desktop and mobile, now feature the same design language.

The big news is the inclusion of the new Intel Xeon E-2100 processor family, which features up to six CPU cores and clock speeds up to 4.7GHz.

Dell introduces six core Xeons to entry-level Precision 3430 and 3630 workstations

Dell Precision 3430 SFF Tower

Dell is doing its bit to redefine the entry-level desktop workstation with two new machines based on the six core Intel Xeon E3-2100 CPU.

This is the first time Dell has offered a six core CPU in an entry-level workstation, so this is big news for CAD users who also rely on ray trace rendering or simulation as part of their workflow.

The Dell Precision 3630 Tower is 23 percent smaller than the previous generation, made possible by dropping the 5.25-inch optical drive bay, but offers more expandability. It can support up to 14TB of storage across five drives (one M.2 NVMe SSD + two 3.5-inch HDDs or four 2.5-inch HDDs) and up to 64GB of 2,666MHz DDR4 memory.

Dell is going back to basics for its remote workstations with a new 1U model that designers, engineers and architects can access over a 1:1 connection.

The new Dell Precision 3930 Rack is designed to give firms all the benefits of having workstations in the datacenter — data security, remote access, reduced desk clutter, etc — without getting involved in the complexities and cost of graphics virtualisation.
