The father from South Yorkshire in England created and designed a 3D printed prosthetic arm for his three-year-old son. The 29-year-old father, Adam Dengel, wanted his young son, Tommy, to have a normal life even with his disability.
That is why Team Unlimbited, which is UK’s biggest 3D printing prosthetics that do charities, provided a customized 3D printed arm to Adam’s child.
PTC, a software company that specializes in 3D modeling, has created a new version of its software Creo.
The new Computer-Aided Design software named Creo 5.0 has many new features. It has new tools like
Software company PTC has released the latest version of its Creo 3D modeling software. The new CAD program, Creo 5.0, introduces a range of new tools and features including topology optimization, additive and subtractive manufacturing capabilities, and more.
The newest 3D printing material could be a great replacement for Peek, according to its creator Filoalfa. Thermec Zed is a type of FDM thermoplastic that was developed in collaboration with DOMO Engineering Plastics, part of the DOMO Chemicals group.
The newest material was described as “unique properties, specially designed for industrial applications,” and called an “extremely resilient material, with excellent dimensional stability that is both sandable and paintable.”
There is usually a limit when it comes to 3D printing things in regards to their color. The colors are usually painted afterward or just plain and simple. However, thanks to Mimaki and their multicolor 3DUJ-553 3D printer.
This new 3D printer will be marketed mainly in Europe. It will have more colors, as many as 10 million colors in layers as fine as 20 microns. It is now available and was first made available in January.
Texas and California will be getting a new 3D printing facility. The Watershed Idea Foundry, a company in Texas, has decided to expand its facilities with a 3D printing area.
They stated that they have opened one in California and one in Texas. However, the one in Texas is mainly about titanium 6Al4V additive manufacturing. “Additive manufacturing is the future of medical device design,” commented Nick Cordaro, CEO of Watershed Idea Foundry.
He added that “Watershed is combining its expertise in both areas to guide entrepreneurs and manufacturers through this innovative transition. These facilities will not only showcase additive manufacturing but also provide best practices, R&D, and training for the future of the industry.”
