Artec 3D has announced the integration of its portable, hand-held 3D scanners with 3D Systems’ Geomagic Freeform software, as the companies look to streamline reverse engineering workflows.

Objects can now be captured directly into Freeform, where users can access a variety of advanced hybrid design capabilities including touch-based 3D sculpting, surfacing, design-intent modeling, 3D scan processing, mold making and CAD interoperability.

Freeform handles the import and export of 3D file formats like STL, OBJ, PLY, IGES, STEP, other neutral formats, and additional CAD formats through Geomagic Freeform Plus.

A filtering device that can be attached to the top of its M200 and M200 Plus 3D printers, has been launched by Zortrax to help reduce the amount of Ultra Fine Particles (UFP) emitted during the printing process.

A HEPA filter reportedly catches over 99 per cent of particles emitted by heated thermoplastics, while also getting rid of unpleasant smells, and helping keep the build area suitably heated - reducing the potential for ABS-based materials to warp.

There’s all kinds of debate happening around the emissions from various FDM materials, so if you’re looking to keep a safe perspective your desktop printing safe - as well as improving the parts that come off the print bed - then its an interesting option.

NASA’s Orion vehicle is set to take off with more than 100 3D printed parts out of the Additive Manufacturing Lab at Lockheed Martin in conjunction with Phoenix Analysis and Design Technologies (PADT), utilising the latest, super tough Stratasys FDM materials.

Using advanced materials such as Ultem 9085 resin and the new Antero material, which incorporates critical Electro-static Dissipative (ESD) functionality, NASA aims to meet key requirements for 3D printed parts to perform in the extremes of deep space.

The newly released Antero is ideally suited to meet NASA’s requirements for heat and chemical resistance, along with the ability to withstand high mechanical loads.

Siemens PLM Software and 12-time NASCAR Cup Series champions Hendrick Motorsports have extended their longstanding technical partnership through the 2024 racing season.

Since 1984, Hendrick Motorsports has earned a record 12 car owner championships in NASCAR’s premier division, and currently fields four full-time Chevrolet teams on the NASCAR Cup Series circuit

Teamcenter is the digital PLM backbone to help Hendrick Motorsports manage the product lifecycle for its racing operations, but is used not only CAD, CAM and simulation data, but it also encompasses a wide range of other data types, including on track performance data and build sheets.
