3D printed polymer-derived ceramics (PDCs) could find wider application through a process developed at the University of Texas at Dallas that extrudes preceramic material in a self-healing bath for support through printing and curing.
The startup’s cloud-based artificial intelligence tool is designed to help companies adopting additive manufacturing make fast, easy decisions about what and how to 3D print.

Cobra Golf drew attention in November 2020 with the launch of a limited-edition putter with metal 3D printed head. What this club says about product development, reshoring manufacturing and the future of consumer goods.
At the end of 2019, Additive Engineering Solutions moved two of its BAAM 3D printers out of the way and began to dig a hole in the floor. How going lower allows AES to build higher.

An experiment resuming in 2022 at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC) will be better able to detect the paths of particles thanks to efficient cooling delivered by metal 3D printed tubes.
Meticuly was founded to provide custom bone implants for local patients in Thailand and regional countries who otherwise would be dependent on standard, imported devices. The concept could be a model for medical treatment in other emerging economies.

The online store utilizes open capacity at its sister 3D printer farms for on-demand production with no startup costs, allowing designers to sell physical products as easily as digital ones.
Join us January 12 at 3:30 p.m. Eastern for a live episode featuring a 3D printed ceramic matrix composite brake disc rotor for high-performance vehicles. Add the session to your MySpark planner.
Decentralizing production through additive manufacturing can bring numerous benefits, but these can only be realized through trust. VeriTX is building a platform to secure a trusted digital supply chain for aerospace and beyond.
