We’ve got another busy week of webinars and events, both live and online, to tell you about in this week’s roundup! Topics run the gamut from 3D printing aircraft cabin parts and Materialise Mimics software to a new 3D printer, transitioning to a digital workflow for orthotics and prosthetics, and much more. The guest at this first Inside AM event will be Christoph Hansen, the Director of Technology & Innovation at Sauber Engineering AG, which has used 3D printing multiple times in the past. “Recognizing that all 3D printed parts shrink or warp during the printing process, Riven is introducing a new re-scaling tool that makes it easy to print parts more accurately. Riven’s software automatically computes re-scaling factors as compared to the original CAD. All processes, from FDM through metal 3D printing, can be made more accurate with quick 3D re-scaling. Unlike checking limited dimensions with calipers or a CMM, Riven uses a full part capture to compute an optimal solution based on the entire part shape to produce a more accurate result.” Last summer, 3D printer manufacturer RIZE launched its large-format, industrial composite system, the RIZE 7XC, which features dual nozzles for multimaterial printing and higher thermal dimensional stability, and leverages the company’s Rizium composite materials. Expanding What’s Possible with Composite 3D PrintingWith a build volume of 370 x 390 x 450 mm, Rize 7XC offers superior large-format 3D Printing alongside a multitude of smart and convenient features. “Injection molding is one of the most widely used manufacturing methods in the world, but milling metal molds can be costly. Printing molds with an SLA 3D printer allows manufacturers to cut costs and achieve super-fast production runs.” “SPEE3D’s Metal 3D Printing technology is the only large format Metal 3D Printing technology proven field deployable as trialled by the Australian Army. SPEE3D completed two trials with the Australian Army at the Mount Bundey field training area in 2020. Testing the WarpSPEE3D Metal 3D Printing technology’s robust operational capability to produce metal parts in harsh environments. During the trials, RAEME craftsmen designed and manufactured over 50 case studies of genuine Australian Army parts. The success from these trials proved the technology offered Defense forces a reliable manufacturing tool and solution to print low-cost metal parts in just minutes on demand.”
