AddUp and simulation experts ESI Group have announced their collaborative Distortion Simulation AddOn, they jointly designed specifically for metal additive manufacturing.

AddUp’s metals 3D printers were founded as a joint venture between French companies Fives and Michelin (of the tyres fame) and its range spans both SLS and EBM technologies.

By integrating simulation directly in the preparatory stages of additive manufacturing, the module brings continuity to the production process using the AddUp Manager user interface, as the working environment for defining simulation parameters, particularly for staff who are not experts in this field.

The TommyKaira ZZ built on GLM’s electric vehicle platform

Aiming to solve the problems for the companies that enter the electric vehicle business, GLM - the Japanese EV company behind the platform for the ZZ sports car - is taking the next steps towards mass production.

Growing demand for its expertise and its own technical platform of electric vehicle development solutions - including chassis, power systems, and vehicle control units - means it is moving its design and engineering capabilities to the ‘Electro Mobility Accelerator’ industry solution from Dassault Systèmes.

GLM will be able to integrate design and development processes, improve efficiency, leverage its knowledge and know-how to expand its range of products and services, and accelerate their delivery to OEMs, suppliers, and other companies involved in electric vehicle development.

Inside the new XJet Additive Manufacturing Centre in Israel

XJet has continued to build on its nano-particle jetting approach to 3D printing, announcing a new ceramic material aimed at the engineering sector and developments on its soluble support material.

Launched as a commercial product only a year ago, its Carmel 1400 system is capable of building parts in ceramics, metals and in the future has the potential to combine the two into a single printed part.

Already producing high-resolution, 99.95% dense ceramic parts from Zirconia, the new ceramic material, Alumina, offers a wider range of engineering uses, faster builds, and more opportunities to manipulate the part while in both its ‘green’ and fired states.

Link3D’s new Post-Processing Management and Work Plan attachment

Aiming to assist organisations streamline manufacturing processes with work plan sequencing and quality management solutions, Link3D has launched a new Post Processing module for additive manufacturing..

By designing and attaching work plans that are templated for each part order within an assembly, representatives that are processing parts for post-production will be automatically notified once work is in their queue.

Detailed post-processing information will include responsible parties and descriptions and/or checklists for each step in the development of the part.

Gentle Giant Studios offer photogrammetry services for some of the biggest names in Hollywood

Gentle Giant Studios has launched two state-of-the-art mobile 3D scanning studios - Juggernaut I and Juggernaut II - that eliminate the need to transport and set up equipment, saving companies time and money without sacrificing quality.

The 3D Systems subsidiary with over 20 years experience of providing photogrammetry services to the VFX and other media and entertainment industries, with the new equipment set to 3D capture and digitise everything from actors and the faintest facial expressions, to props, costumes, to vehicles.

The traditional photogrammetry workflow, setting up the equipment and a temporary sound stage takes over two days, while the Juggernaut system only takes two hours to place and level.

Carbon’s RPU (rigid polyurethane) 70 material as used by Wilson Tool International

Carbon has continued to lower the prices of its most widely used resins by expanding its bulk discount program introduced last year, in what Carbon calls ‘a game changer’ for high volume production.

EPX 82 (epoxy), EPU 41 (elastomeric polyurethane), and RPU 70 (rigid polyurethane) will be offered in bulk volumes at $50 per liter as the company looks to spur growth for the implementation of its digital manufacturing solution globally.

“The global appetite for using digital manufacturing for high-volume production is rapidly growing, as more and more manufacturers are implementing these next-gen technologies into their processes and supply chains,” said Carbon CEO and co-founder Dr. Joseph DeSimone.
