The End Of Mcor Technologies?

1 month 2 weeks ago
The ArkePro, likely the last device produced by Mcor Technologies. (Image courtesy of Fabbaloo.) It appears the end is near for Mcor Technologies, as we have indications they are in receivership. The Irish company was one we’ve tracked for many years, beginning with one of our most popular stories describing their radical paper-based 3D printing technology way back in 2007. The technology involved gluing sheets together and neatly cutting off non-object material, sheet by sheet. This a...

Waiting for Xerox's 3D Printing Play

2 months 1 week ago
Liquid metal 3D printing at Xerox. (Image courtesy of Fabbaloo.) As industrial interest in 3D printing grows exponentially, new players are sure to arrive. One of them is likely to be Xerox. We’ve known, officially, for a few months, that Xerox intends on entering the 3D print space in a big way. Their CEO released a three-year roadmap for Xerox to participate in the industry, and it covers many aspects. A curious post on their website reveals a bit more about Xerox’s 3D print...

Realizing 3D Printing’s Potential via Automated Post-Processing Tech

2 months 1 week ago
As the 3D printing space continues to transform into something that fits into industrial factory settings, we’ve seen materials expand, systems improve, and a trend toward automation. What has so far seemed to be the missing piece is an equal improvement in post-processing technologies. One company looking to address that gap is Sheffield, UK-based Additive Manufacturing Technologies (AMT), which has developed a technology for modifying the surface area of a wide range of polymers, spe...

3D Printing with Carbon Fiber: Tracing the Lifecycle Thread

2 months 2 weeks ago
3D-printing carbon fiber is now a mainstay of the additive manufacturing (AM) industry. While companies like Impossible Objects seek to make large-scale carbon fiber a reality, Markforged and a number of filament suppliers have made 3D printing with this tough material commonplace. Carbon fiber-reinforced nylon parts made using Markforged 3D-printing technology. (Image courtesy of Markforged.) In this article, we will trace the carbon fiber that has been woven into the industry from its r...

TOP 12 des imprimantes 3D à double extrusion

2 months 3 weeks ago
Les imprimantes 3D FDM possèdent généralement une seule tête d'extrusion, appelée aussi extrudeur, qui vient déposer le filament fondu sur le plateau d'impression. Certaines machines sont toutefois dotées de deux extrudeurs (et même parfois plus) offrant la possibilité d'imprimer avec […]

Terry Wohlers On The 2019 Wohlers Report

2 months 3 weeks ago
(Image courtesy of Fabbaloo.) The 24th annual Wohlers Report is available now; Terry Wohlers shares a look at the findings. Each year, the Wohlers Report shares an in-depth examination on the state of the 3D printing industry. It’s been called many things, but most commonly the “bible of 3D printing” or, a bit less hyperbolically, simply a well-regarded, trusted resource. The annual updates build upon past years’ findings, diving into more detail and tracing trends w...
