Additive Manufacturing Media Announces New Web Series, The Cool Parts Show

Additive Manufacturing's new web series will focus on unique applications of 3D printing.

The Cool Parts Show

Editor-in-Chief Peter Zelinski and Senior Editor Stephanie Hendrixson discuss cool parts in Season 1 Episode 2 of The Cool Parts Show.

Additive Manufacturing Media has announced the launch of its new web series, The Cool Parts Show. The series is hosted by Senior Editor, Stephanie Hendrixson and Editor-in-Chief, Pete Zelinski. Each episode will feature one 3D printed part and follow it from design to manufacture. The focus is on the unique opportunities that 3D printing offers and how that technology is changing the face of manufacturing.

“So much of additive technology is visual, from the freedom of design to the movement of a build plate,” Hendrixson says. “We wanted a forum where we could really engage with a part and show the audience all the ins and outs in a way that static cad models and pictures can’t.”

Season one premiered on October 7 and episodes will post weekly to the Additive Manufacturing Media YouTube channel.

The premiere season includes parts from:

  • Fabrisonic
  • Tangible Solutions
  • NTopology
  • DustRam
  • HP
  • Aetrex
  • EOS

  • Grinding Improves Surface Finish in 3D Printed Inconel, Study Shows

    3D printed metal parts typically feature little stock remaining for finishing. Grinding is potentially an effective solution for meeting final tolerances. An abrasive technology provider investigates grinding as a complement to AM.

  • AM 101: Binder Jetting

    Binder jetting requires no support structures, is accurate and repeatable, and is said to eliminate dimensional distortion problems common in some high-heat 3D technologies. Here is a look at how binder jetting works and its benefits for additive manufacturing.

  • Six Additional Advantages of the Desktop Metal Systems

    Beyond the accessibility and simplicity, the new metal 3D printing technology delivers other significant benefits as well. One example: Remove support structures by hand rather than machining them.
