Airbus 3D Printing technology transformation underway



3D printers could transform the manufacturing of airplane parts, because it's potentially cheaper, and can result in components that are more than 50% lighter than with traditional manufacturing methods.

European aircraft manufacturer Airbus is expanding use of 3D printing technology to manufacture individual parts or even larger airframe structures for the company's line of aircraft. Airbus has started to use printed plastic parts in their A300/A310 Family and also their next-generation A350 XWB. Metal parts for wing slats, a section of the tail wing and door hinges have also been made with 3D printing. The 3D printed parts are lighter and stronger and have cost saving potential.

"We are on the cusp of a step-change in weight reduction and efficiency – producing aircraft parts which weight 30 to 55 percent less, while reducing raw material used by 90 percent," says Peter Sander of Airbus. "This game-changing technology also decreases total energy used in production by up to 90 percent compared to traditional methods."

In the long term 3D printing could reduce weight on each aircraft by more than a ton. according to Airbus, the first commercial flights with 3D printed metal parts are expected by 2016 and a mass production by 2018. By then about 30 tons metal parts will be printed every month.

3D Systems releases first details of high-speed 3D printing assembly line for Google's Project Ara



3D Systems released today some of the first details about their new high-speed, continuous fab-grade printer, which could set a new bar for mass-customization product manufacturing.

This "racetrack" 3D printer enables continuous printing of higher functionality polymers at speeds 50x faster than all existing jetting technology, according to 3D Systems. The company plans to showcase this next generation general-purpose production platform at Euromold 2014.

Whereas 3D printers typically utilize a moving printhead on a stationary bed, this high-speed, continuous fab-grade printer puts the print bed in motion on speedy track system under a set of stationary printheads.

The result is a 3D printing assembly line: many products printing at once, all unique, all in full color and multi materials. Parts in varying phases of completion move in a continuous flow. When a part is done, it exits the track for post-processing and a new print bed takes its place. This is high-speed, custom, continuous, and fully automated manufacturing.

This new high-speed printer and its advanced materials (including conductive materials) will be used to print millions of module shells for Google's Project Ara, the initiative to create a modular smartphone that reflects each person's unique style as well as choice of functional modules. They need the capability to create thousands of unique module shells everyday.

Most important, this new high speed, mass-customized additive manufacturing platform can be easily integrated with traditional manufacturing processes (such as CNC machining and coating), opening up countless new applications for 3D printing on factory floors.

Minibuilders, tiny robots 3D printing structures in any size



Researchers from the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC), based in Barcelona, have combined robotics with 3D printing and developed a group of three separate robots, all mobile and capable of constructing objects far larger than the robot itself. Each of the robots was designed to perform a diverse task, linked to the different phases of construction, and work together to print a large scale structure.

It's going to be so confusing...

You'll just order sugar powder for printing these cubes and your 3D printer will do the rest, why on Earth would someone actually want to go to a store and buy pre-made cubes since they can probably break apart or something.

It would be pretty nice if this vision comes true, having a 3D food printer and when one type of food filament gets low, its automatically delivered to your door. But even better, imagine if a 3D printer was connected to a refrigerator or was a 3D printing refrigerator and you would just have to refill a few containers of food filament and you'd have all the food you request. And it would 3D print everything in your refrigerator inventory. You would never have to go to a food store again lol.

Race and culture are united. Watch the video below.



It's not just about race. Arabians are coming to Spain. They are mostly muslims, which causes the islamization and the end of Western style law and politics. I'm not against muslims, but I am not for them coming to non-muslim countries to spread their religion and way of life, in hopes of that country becoming islamic.

If you want world equality, and you see that all people are equal and each unique, then you must preserve each one on its own land.

So you blame every single white person for invading other countries, and you think that if they happen to be born white they are guilty from birth? The part where you think Europe invaded other continents first is wrong. Europe was not the first to invade countries, nor it will be the last. There was the: Egyption empire, the Mongol Empire, Akkadian Empire, Xia Dynasty, Achaemenid Empire, and more that invaded and conquered before Europe did. These empires listed where non-white yet they invaded and conquered before any European Empire did.

Nowadays the People's Republic of China is a superpower economically, it is a modern day empire, and invades countries with goods for sale. It is non-white. Does it mean that you must blame all Chinese people? It doesn't, and you shouldn't blame whites either.

From another thread about 3D printing in space.

That reminds me a little of Shapeways. It's nice that more mainstream stores are starting to understand 3D printing, next is Ebay?

As far as I know, 3d printing is a growing trend today, so all major brands sooner or later will invest in this technology. Guess Ebay as well.

Netflix has released the trailer for Print the Legend Luis Lopez and J. Clay Tweel's documentary about the nascent American 3D printing industry.

Netflix acquired exclusive rights to "Print The Legend" at the SXSW Film Festival this March, where it received the Special Jury Recognition Award for Editing & Storytelling in the Documentary Feature Competition.

The film explores the people and companies racing to deliver consumer 3D printing. It goes behind-the-scenes of the top American 3D printing brands - MakerBot, Formlabs, Stratasys and 3D Systems - as they fight for dominance in the rapidly developing, groundbreaking field of 3D printing.
