This week we found the top 5 videos about 3D printing and the way additive manufacturing is changing production. The technology has infiltrated many sectors, from medical to automotive – check our selection of the week to keep up with the innovations! If you enjoy these, you can view even more 3D printing videos on our Youtube channel.
Top 1: The pioneer of automated post-processing
In additive manufacturing, one of the key steps in the development of quality parts is post-treatment, a process that allows the desired finish, color or shape of each print to be achieved. In this video you will discover why PostProcess Technologies is leading the automated post-processing revolution in the additive manufacturing industry. It is one of the few companies in the world that is solving today’s post-processing challenges by providing end-to-end digital AM solutions – don’t miss out!
Top 2: BMW benefits from additive manufacturing
Recently, the BMW automobile company opened a center dedicated entirely to 3D printing: the Additive Manufacturing Campus in Oberschleissheim, north of Munich. In the video below, you can see what is inside the BMW AM center to learn more about how the German manufacturer makes use of the innovative 3D printing technologies. Additive manufacturing provides BMW with the opportunity to create organic and much more complex structures than would be possible through traditional production.
Top 3: Forward AM’s work with Photocentric
BASF’s 3D printing division, Forward AM, is developing a materials portfolio specifically tailored for the LCD-screen based 3D printers from Photocentric. The two companies – Forward AM and Photocentric – have been collaborating on optimizing photopolymer resins and printer parameters, and the next step is to go to market together with a range of high-performance photopolymers: ‘Ultracur3D Powered by Photocentric’. For BASF, this is another specialized application for its Ultracur range of materials, which can be applied to DLP, LCD and SLA based 3D printing technologies.
Top 4: KC3D Enable Project – 3D printed hand
Keystone College located in Pennsylvania, US, has an additive manufacturing center to educate students and prepare them for a career in 3D printing field; the center also benefits local residents and businesses. Recently, they partnered with a non-profit organization, Enabling the Future global 3D printing network, to manufacture prosthetics for the members of the Northeastern Pennsylvania community. Once completed, the devices will function just like artificial hands and will be designed and made entirely through the 3D printing process.
Top 5: The launch of MakerBot CloudPrint
In this video MakerBot presents its newest product – MakerBot CloudPrint™, a platform that is designed to support collaboration across remote teams. It allows the users to collaborate and share access to MakerBot 3D printers, even when working remotely. Basically, this digital tool helps you prepare, queue, print, and monitor – all from one cloud-based platform. MakerBot CloudPrint™ can maximize the printer capacity by automatically finding the next available printer through intelligent queuing. To see what other advantages this platform can offer, check out the video below!
