RAPID prototyping, ELASTOMERS, 3-D printers, and THREE-dimensional printing
The article discusses the company Stratasys which is bringing to market advanced elastomers and enhanced materials for its leading Fused Granular Manufacturing (FDM) and Polyjet machines that are used in three-dimensional printing. It states that the FDM elastomer solution provides manufacturers with new levels of elasticity, durability with true soluble support, while advanced colors for Polyjet drive enhanced realism in transforming legacy design and prototyping processes.
RAPID prototyping, THREE-dimensional printing, and EQUIPMENT & supplies
The article focuses on the growing popularity of three-dimensional (3D)-printing technology for rapid prototyping tasks. Topics discussed include the partnership of McLaren Racing with 3D printing company Stratasys, the forecast by market analyst Research and Markets on the expected increase of 3D-printing by 2021, and the advancements in rapid prototyping technology. It also discusses the efforts to enable the technology to develop prototype that can function similarly to the final product.
The article offers information on several rapid prototyping services and systems, including a laser direct structuring (LDS) rapid prototyping system from LPKF Laser & Electronic AG, rapid service from injection-moulding company Protomold Co. Inc., and the Objet260 Connex 3D printing machine from Objet Ltd.
RAPID prototyping, PRINTING, THREE-dimensional printing, and SELF-organizing systems
The article discusses the four-dimensional (4-D) printing that involves programmable materials building themselves and morphing into other shapes. Topics discussed include MIT Self-Assembly Lab and three-dimensional printing company Stratasys' demonstration of a way to create one-dimensional or two-dimensional materials that fold or morph into three-dimensional (3-D) shapes and applications of the 4-D technique.
RAPID prototyping, PRODUCTION methods, BEST practices, and THREE-dimensional printing
The article features doctor Phil Reeves, vice-president of Stratasys Ltd. Strategic Consulting, presenting his view on the trends in additive manufacturing (AM) and shift in focus from prototyping method to the production mainstream. Reeves discusses the wide adoption and reluctance for AM, the changes in fundamental practices in daily operation of a business, and the collaboration of Stratasys with Siemens AG and Kuka on the Robotic Composite Three-Dimensional (3D) Demonstrator.
The article reports on three-dimensional (3D) printer manufacturer Stratasys Ltd.'s launch of Xtend 500 Fortus Plus, a high-volume filament package for its Fortus 3D Production Systems brand. Topics discussed include product output, expected unattended run time, and streamlined 3D production from fewer material changeovers. Also mentioned are logistical savings in storage and shipping, fused deposition modeling (FDM) thermoplastic material, and the availability of a Fortus Plus system upgrade.
RAPID prototyping, THREE-dimensional printing, 3-D printers, and COPYING
The article focuses on the creation by printing solutions provider Stratasys Ltd. and Millennium Gate Museum of a 3D printed replica of the Statue of Zeus at Olympia. Topics covered include the use of advanced Fused Deposition Modeling in doing the project, the development of the initial structure on a wood frame and the advantage of using the Fortus 900mc Production 3D Printer in massive recreations.
PROTOTYPES, THREE-dimensional printing, and 3-D printers
The article focuses on the project of designing, prototyping and manufacturing the 14-foot tall three dimensional (3D) printed creature called "Bodock," by 3D printing equipment manufacturer Stratasys, Stan Winston School of Character Arts, and Condé Nast Entertainment. Topics include the use of an array of 3D printers for the project, the filming of the entire process by a crew from the Stan Winston School, and debut of the creature at Comic-Con International convention in 2014.
CORPORATE profits, RAPID prototyping, and THREE-dimensional printing
The article reports on the affirmation of three-dimensional (3D) printer maker, Stratasys Inc., on the continued strength of the 3D printer market. It states that Stratasys declared a revenue of $126.1 million, showing a 39% increase from $90.9 million in the earlier quarter in 2013. According to the company's chief executive officer (CEO) David Reis, they are well positioned to sustain their positive momentum as they accelerate their rate of new product introduction.
