Solidscape reappears with new desktop DLP 3D Printer

When Prodways picked up established lost wax casting 3D printer company Solidscape from Stratasys midway through last year, few were thinking we’d see a new machine arrive so early, let alone in a new sector.

The first SLA 3D printer under the Solidscape brand, will hit the market at the beginning of Q2 2019, and is set to maintain the company’s close ties to jewellery design with the new SolidscapeDL model’s castable resins.

The machine will use a DLP engine, developed from Prodways’ MOVINGLight production scale machine series; and resins developed by Deltamed, Prodways’ UV light curing materials arm, and has more than a few similarities with Prodways’ ProMaker LD3 DLP 3D Printer launched in June 2018.

Having acquired Vero Software and its CAD CAM software in 2014, Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division has announced that it will join two other technology branches to form its Production Software business.

Along with FASys (tooling and resource management) and SPRING Technologies (G-code verification), Vero will adopt Hexagon’s corporate identity, as well as working closer together - something Production Software business CEO Steve Sivitter suggests has already been happening for some time.

“Operating together as a single entity is a natural step for us,” said Sivitter, “We’re all excited at the prospect of what’s possible now creating innovative manufacturing intelligence solutions in the production software space.”

MIT develops system to break down complex designs into simpler shapes for custom manufacturing

MIT researchers have devised a technique that reverse engineers complex CAD models — breaking them down into individual shapes to easier customise and manufacture

In presentation at AMC SIGGRAPH Asia conference, MIT researchers announced its system that breaks down CAD models into their primitive shapes, such as spheres and cuboids.

At present, while designers use CAD to create and assemble individual shapes into a final object; the MIT researchers’ method does the reverse, disassembling the CAD models into individual shapes that can be edited.

As input, the system takes a 3-D triangle mesh and first determines the individual shapes that make it up, before Program Synthesis goes through all the shapes to figure out how the shapes were put together and assembled into a final model.
