Digital Factory, the flagship SaaS product from Link3D, has added Blockchain technology, enabling enhanced data governance, provenance, audibility and validation - helping to link the start-to-finish data strand.

Link3D suggest that the inclusion of Blockchain solves major problems in the 3D printing workflow, including file integration, IP integrity, with Blockchain technology being used to track origination of each design file and its evolution.

It is also capable of facility matching and authentication, as service bureau capability can be stored on Blockchain and orders can be pre-verified, while real-time data from machines can be stored in an immutable way for forensics during recalls and for traceability.

A combination of Rize’s voxel-level ink jetting 3D printing capability and the usage of the new 3MF format means that significant intelligence on the additive part can now be carried from the digital world into the physical world.

Engineers can 3D print secure information on an industrial part, in a QR code for example, allowing common smartphone app can scan the QR code on the part and instantly display the corresponding digital information online.

Its an interesting use for Rize’s 3D Printing capabilities, connecting the part with an ever increasing digital ecosystem - with uses for compliance, authenticity and traceability.

HP now offers eight mobile workstations, by far the most of any OEM

HP is betting big on mobile workstations. Today, it added two new machines to its ZBook line up – the convertible HP ZBook Studio x360 and the ‘affordable’ HP ZBook 15v. It means HP now offers eight different mobile workstations in total, significantly more than the other major OEMs.

In addition, the IT giant has updated all of its current ZBook models, with the new ‘G5’ editions featuring new CNC-machined aluminium alloy chassis, better security, new Intel CPUs (including models with six cores) and Nvidia Quadro Pascal GPUs.

So, let’s look at what’s new.

Post processing of 3D printed parts gets smart with new Connect3D software

Published 05 April 2018

Posted by Stephen Holmes

Article tagged with: 3d printing, manufacturing, additive manufacturing, post process

PostProcess Technologies, a pioneer of automated post-print solutions for industrial 3D printing, announced today its Connect3D software platform, an expansion of its Automat3D software offering.

Where Automat3D powers the intelligent removal of 3D support materials and surface finishing, the new Connect3D platform extends this capability into the cloud for the first time, allowing the digital thread for smart additive manufacturing to move beyond design and print, all the way through to the final post-printing step.

Connect3D allows PostProcess solutions to leverage the native CAD-file or 3D printer sliced files to automatically define the necessary requirements and algorithms for post-printing - allowing the software to become progressively smarter and more efficient in the decision-making required to deliver optimal post-printing results.
