Ann & TJ,

Yes on speed, I noted that the one machine was claiming a 10 X speed improvement over the competition.  This is the kind of jump one hopes to see in the early part of the development curve-I can't wait to see what the next 5 years will bring.

We are just seeing the thin edge of the development wedge on speed, materials and size.  Big fun for engineers.

 

Cheerio,

Dennis

Deberah, thanks for clarifying your question. You'd have to ask 3D Systems, since they've just started selling these machines.

@Anne i meant to say tht are the products printed with 3D printers are available in the market for sale as well or they are just the prototypes

Debera, can you please clarify your question? Which products do you mean--the 3D printers or what they're printing? And what do you mean by "working well in the market"?

Cadman-LT, I know the CNC tolerance-equivalence may be hard to believe, but this technology is going through rapid changes right now--kind of like sped up evolution--in the effort to make it feasible for production. The pace of change has changed.

Cadman, if these printers become offordable then there will be no issues in making or printing customize products for ourselves and to gift our loved ones as well.

Ann, thats really great and all the slide shows has fascinated me i really liked the idea of printing car dashboards with 3d printer plus the colour gun was an awsome idea  and those colourfull cup saucers were  the most cute one .I am really hoping and waiting to see  how these 3d systems will change the printing world .

The good thing about either one is, you could make parts that don't even exist. To go from whatever fitting to whatever other fitting. One part, no adapters.

I wish I would have had one of these small home 3D printers the other day. My pipes busted and I needed some small PVC fittings. I drove all over trying to find them. Sure would have been nice to just stay at home and warm, download the file and print it out. Or even better, for local stores to have a printer and they can make you whatever fitting you need. Ahhhhh, one day.

At this year's MD&M West show, lots of material suppliers are talking about new formulations for wearables and things that stick to the skin, whether it's adhesives, wound dressings, skin patches and other drug delivery devices, or medical electronics.
Researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory have published two physics-based models for the selective laser melting (SLM) metals additive manufacturing process, so engineers can understand how it works at the powder and scales, and develop better parts with less trial and error.
Materials and assembly methods on exhibit at next week's MD&M West and other co-located shows will include some materials you should see, as well as several new and improved processes. Here's a sampling of what you can expect.
More plastics are coming into hospital equipment, as well as single-use, patient-friendly medical devices and wearables.
The Food & Drug Administration has approved a 3D-printed, titanium, cranial/craniofacial patient-specific plate implant for use in the US. The implant is 3D printed using Arcam's electron beam melting (EBM) process.
