Version 2.0 of Kubotek3D’s Kosmos framework is a set of advanced, multi-platform C/C++ software components that offer to maximise a program’s performance and ability to work with complete engineering models and data from all major MCAD databases.

Kubotek3D’s software facilitate interoperability between CAD programs - allowing geometry, no matter where it originated, to be used throughout the manufacturing supply chain - with Kosmos supporting software developers building precise 3D applications that need to work with engineering models and data.

“For the 2.0 release Kubotek Kosmos has been significantly re-packaged to better support two distinct groups of developers. The first group only needs to read precise engineering data and the second group also needs editing or geometry creation,” said Kubotek3D CTO Ram Eswaran.

3D printing bureau 3DDC has acquired the first Prodways ProMaker P1000 SLS 3D printer in the UK

Based near Milton Keynes, 3DDC will add the tech to its roster of high details polymer parts, alongside its own metal electro-coating process that it developed in-house.

“The ProMaker P1000 was an obvious choice for us to add to our 3D printing capacity. With the quality of the parts it can build, and the variety of SLS materials available from Prodways, the P1000 fits our criteria perfectly,” hummed 3DDC GM Alex Michniak as he unpacked his new machine.

Arevo continues to focus its 3D printing technology on the world of high-level cycling, announcing its work to produce a new set of composite wheels and a new e-bike frame, all featuring the ‘Arevo DNA AM process’.

Explaining this as its own unique technology, it is said to feature patented software algorithms that enable generative design techniques, free-motion robotics for ‘True 3D’ construction, and direct energy deposition for virtually void free construction, all optimised for anisotropic composite materials.

Arevo says this process takes the design and final manufacture of a bike frame down from 18 months to just a few days, leading to a significant reduction in product development costs.

Link3D has launched its Material Tracking System module for additive manufacturing, fully integrating it into its existing Additive MES Workflow Software.

The system allows for traceability throughout the entire 3D printing production process by managing material and consumable serial numbers, batches, and order quantities.

By using it, businesses should be able to record their purchase history across all material and consumable vendors and link this data to each printed part utilising the Link3D production scheduling module.
