Pradeep Bhattad of Zeiss discusses AM process control - understanding of how parameters affect form, size and microstructure. Join him Oct. 2 at 1:00 pm EDT as part of AM In-Depth. (Add to your MySpark Planner.)
3D Engineering Solutions offers CT scanning as a powerful nondestructive testing (NDT) solution for inspection. For 3D printed parts, sometimes revealing the space inside can be just as valuable as mapping what was printed.
The AI software platform Blacksmith from Markforged shares feedback from its cloud-connected fleet of printers to identify and correct distortions in a 3D-printed part.

MSP recently worked with Renishaw PLC to automate part setup and improve productivity for additive manufacturing firm 3T-am, helping to cut part setup time from 5 hours to 10 minutes.
The CNC machine simulation and optimization software from CGTech has improved upon features to further additive manufacturing.
A new, customized digital radiology vault and specialized additive manufacturing system at Auburn University aims to understand and control the complex heat and mass transport phenomena taking place during the laser sintering process.
Measurement aids AM and AM aids measurement. Recently posted articles describe how sensing and measurement make AM more capable, while AM delivers devices that are smarter because of sensing.
RAPID 2020: Zeiss’ Comet 3D scanner sensor offers a fast measuring speed to quickly identify any post-build process influences on the dimensional accuracy of a finished 3D-printed part.
Ultrasonic metal additive manufacturing was used to create a build plate aimed at making powder bed fusion more effective. This episode of The Cool Parts Show looks at a part by AM, for AM.
