Digital Manufacturing for the Built Environment

Digital Manufacturing for the Built Environment

Edwin Stokes is speaking today to the acclaimed architects Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners about the opportunities presented to the built environment by Digital Manufacturing. Making functional complexity at scale is now real. Designers are no longer bound by traditional methods of making – it’s time to open your minds to new creative design solutions! Read More…

Bezel

Bezel is one of our favourite words. And what do you know, we’ve just printed eight on our Fortus 900mc machine. These will be used to frame a series of TV monitors that are mounted to a wall to give the impression that the viewer is inside an aeroplane looking out above the clouds. This Read More…

Metal 3D printing isn’t quite mainstream but it’s developing fast

Metal 3D printing isn’t quite mainstream but it’s developing fast

3D printing metals has been pretty much experimental up until recently. The challenges presented by the very high operating temperatures, relative to 3D printing polymers, have been significant for quality, printing time and cost. The typical applications for 3D printed metal parts (e.g. aerospace) are usually technically demanding too, requiring strict quality assurance. GE appear Read More…

Intricate architecture

Intricate architecture

3D printing is enabling a return to intricate architecture of the kind not seen since the likes of the remarkable Gothic ceiling of King’s College, Cambridge, built in 1515. Using pink wax deposited by a nozzle on a robotic arm, the FreeFAB 3D printing system can cost-effectively make precise moulds and formwork to realise, in Read More…

In addition to printing BIG and FAST, parts made on our Massivit 1800 are translucent. So we can integrate lighting to provide another layer of interest and functionality. The possibilities just got BIGGER.
