Masters of Pie, a London-based technology outfit specialising in virtual and augmented reality software for manufacturing and wider enterprises, has gained some significant investment, to the tune of £1.6 million from Downing Ventures.

You might have seen some of its technology being demonstrated, particularly by Siemens, which has integrated a set of it into NX (in fact, that integration was demonstrated on stage today PLM Connections in Arizona).

There was an announcement around the partnership between the two, but it didn’t see much in the way of exposure.

With an install base of more than 550 systems, EOS’ Formiga machine family are among the most prevalent polymer 3D printers on the market, which means the promised 20 per cent extra productivity of its new Velocis 3D printer should be of interest.

Based on the Formiga P 110 for additive manufacturing with plastic materials, Velocis’ technical improvements are based around an accelerated heating and re-coating process, as well as an improved temperature distribution in the build chamber of the system.

This is managed by an improved heating system and software control to preheat the polymer material on the build layer, before being fused precisely using a laser beam.

French 3D measurement solutions expert, Kreon, has unveiled three new blue light, contactless options for its Skyline 3D scanning range.

Based on a common portable technological platform, all the Skyline scanners share the same technical characteristics of scanning speed, performance and ergonomics, along with integration with the Kreon Ace measuring arm.

With French marketing continuing to plough its own path (ie. in a world of its own, with the Caps Lock always on), the three options have been branded Eyes, Wide, Open - a word away from a sketchy late 90’s Tom Cruise film.
