Learn how Joebstl and his team introduced stereolithography (SLA) 3D printing to produce custom jigs and other low-volume parts directly for their manufacturing line, in one case, reducing lead time for jigs by 90 percent—from two to three weeks to less than a day—and decreasing costs by 80-90 percent, leading to €150,000 in savings.
In honor of our conference on digital manufacturing, The Digital Factory, Formlabs is releasing a limited-run podcast! In this series, hosted by O’Reilly Media’s Jon Bruner and guest host David Cranor, we’ll explore the future of the factory floor through conversations with experts who are changing the way things are made. In episode 4, we sit down with Ric Fulop, the founder and CEO of Desktop ...
In episode 4, we sit down with Ric Fulop, the founder and CEO of Desktop Metal, founded in 2015 with the goal of reinventing the way design and manufacturing teams print with metal. Like Formlabs, Desktop Metal is hard at work making industrial technology more accessible and bringing 3D printing further into the realm of production of end-use parts.
At Davidson Jewels, customization is more than a business plan: it’s a philosophy. This jewelry design studio, based in Calgary, designs and builds custom jewelry and engagement rings, working with clients from concept to final piece to create jewelry that “is as unique as that special person in your life.”
Dani Clode wanted to change the perception of prosthetics and decided to design a 3D printed "Third Thumb." Her graduate project at Royal College of Art in London represents a novel approach to human augmentation, shifting our focus from “fixing” disability, to extending ability. Discover how 3D printing is making prosthetics both acceptable and accessible.
We sit down with Spencer Wright, head of product at nTopology and author of The Prepared, to discuss the challenges and rewards of moving from traditional machining to metal 3D printing, the benefits of lattice structures and how they’re generated, and the potential downsides of an automated future.
Oliver ‘Oli’ Braun desperately wanted a model of SpaceX’s Falcon 9, so he decided to create a replica himself. Oli had no previous experience with 3D printing, or creating physical models, and now he’s manufacturing 1 meter tall replicas of SpaceX’s Falcon 9 and Falcon Heavy rockets 24/7. Learn how any CAD user can master the art of creating professional scale models.
