The US Marine Corps last year banned use of synthetic materials, such as polyester and nylon, for combat soldiers. In some cases, those materials fused to soldiers’ skin when exposed to heat. A new blend made half of wool and half of aramid fiber is being developed for soldiers’ underwear in a cooperative program between the American Wool Council and the Natick Soldier Center (NSC) operated by the US Army.
Two new technologies from Stratasys, created in partnership with Boeing, Ford, and Siemens, will bring accurate, repeatable manufacturing of very large thermoplastic end products, and much bigger composite parts, onto the factory floor for industries including automotive and aerospace.
These new 3D-printing technologies and printers include some that are truly boundary-breaking: a sophisticated new sub-$10,000, 10-plus materials bioprinter, the first industrial-strength silicone 3D-printing service, and a clever twist on 3D printing and thermoforming for making high-quality realistic models.
