Intel has launched the Intel Xeon W-3175X, a new workstation-class processor with 28 cores that can Turbo up to 4.3GHz out of the box, with a base clock speed of 3.1GHz.

It is designed to offer balanced single threaded and multi-threaded performance, so can be used for CAD and ray trace rendering, and is also the first Xeon processor that is unlocked so it can be overclocked.

Traditionally, only Intel Core series processors can be easily pushed beyond their core clock speeds.

The Xeon W-3175X is likely to be Intel’s response to AMD’s 32-core Second Generation Ryzen Threadripper processor which launched in August and is reviewed in full here.

Varjo, the developer of the ‘human-eye’ resolution VR / XR headset designed for industrial use, has received a $31m Series B investment, led by Atomico.

The Helsinki-based firm has also announced that it is collaborating with Airbus, Audi, Lilium, Saab, Sellen, Volkswagen and Volvo Cars to optimise the headset for their respective business sectors and needs.

Varjo will launch its VR headset in late Q4, 2018, with an AR/XR add-on to the headset available in the first half of 2019. The current available prototype has an effective resolution of 50 megapixels per eye, over twenty times that of consumer devices.

X-Jet’s metal and ceramic nano particle jetting additive manufacturing technology is fast emerging from its start-up beginnings, having announced its first sales partner - the UK-based Carfulan Group.

The first 3D printing systems, the Carmel 700 and 1400, are made possible by a unique liquid dispersion technique, where liquid suspensions containing solid nanoparticles of selected build and support materials are jetted onto a build tray to create incredibly dense and detailed models.

Named XJ3D, the X-Jet sales arm of Carfulan Group will join its range of turned-part measurement, 3D printing and tool pre-setting and inspection technologies under the company’s umbrella for advanced manufacturing.

Stratasys’ multi-material J750 colour 3D Printers have been given a license to flourish in the wider world thanks to a new partnership with online 3D printing provider Shapeways.

The abilities of the Stratasys full colour offering have never been in doubt, but with colour parts still not as prevalent as their single-hued counterparts, or the machines as affordable, the new move suddenly opens up the technology to a wider range of prototypes and parts.

“The vivid colours of the Stratasys J750 3D Printer will enable the Shapeways community of designers, businesses, students, and artists to realise their brightest ideas and boldest ambitions in true physical form with full-colour, texture mapping and colour gradients,” said Shapeways CEO Greg Kress.

Safran Electrical & Power has been working hard on improving its design for an electrical generator housing by exploiting the technical advantages of 3D printing.

The company, which designs and produces electrical systems for commercial and military aircraft, has been keen to improve its design knowledge coupled with an increasing number of customers requesting parts to be made by Additive Manufacturing (AM).

By working with 3D printing specialists Betatype, the design was reconfigured to focus on improving its strength, stiffness and a reduction in overall weight using the benefits of Betatypes in-house developed lattice generation software.
