HP Mars Home Planet, the year-long competition that challenges the creative community to design solutions to support one million humans on Mars, has entered the rendering phase.

Entrants must either render one of their own designs or reference the finalists entries of the previous two challenges - the Mars Home Planet Concept Challenge and Mars Home Planet 3D Modeling Challenge. The submission can be a still, animation or VR/Real-time executable in one of two classes – Architecture/Civil Engineering or Vehicles/Mechanical Engineering.

It looks like the aerospace industry is starting to take the metals additive world seriously - we’re seeing more and more exploration of the potential of the technologies available, both as research projects as well as commerical activities.

A solid indicator is the news that Airbus is selling its additive manufacturing research and development lab, APWorks, to aerostructures specialists and Tier 1 suppliers Premium Aerotec for an undisclosed sum.

Premium Aerotec was the first aviation supplier able to introduce 3D printed titanium components into the structure of aircraft, and states that it has ‘full capability’, covering the entire additive manufacturing process chain, from product conception to development, printing and the downstream process steps.

Carbon bounces traditional foams out the window with new ‘bulk buy’ EPU 41 material

EPU 41 is the latest functional material ready for use straight off Carbon’s 3D printers

Carbon’s library of tunable elastomer lattices and software tools has been boosted further by the announcement of EPU 41 to its 3D printable elastomeric material family.

Well-suited for producing the kinds of elastomeric lattice geometries that can outperform traditional foams, EPU 41 has a higher resilience and better low-temperature performance compared to EPU 40, and its combination of tear strength, energy return, and elongation make it perfect for cushioning, impact absorption, and comfort.

EPU 41 is also said to perform very well in functional testing, including fatigue, hydrolysis, UV-stability, and plastic deformation tests.
