Revenues of Metal 3D Printing Powders Expected to Requite $ 1.2 Billion in 2021

R&MSWMResearch and Markets has not long ago revealed the addition of a new study, entitled “Additive Manufacturing with Metal Powders 2016: An Opportunity Analysis and Ten-Year Forecast”, that focuses on the revenue expected to be made of metal additive making powders. According to their new report, metal powders can generate revenues of around $1.2 billion in 2021, and are expected to go on and requite $2.4 billion in 2025. The study provides a full-scale analysis on opportunities for metal powder suppliers, the evolution of the market, existing and emerging metal 3D printing innovation, and much additional. The study covers a plethora of metal powder materials, which include steels, cobalt chrome, nickel alloys, titanium alloys, aluminum, copper alloys, and other precious metals.

iMakr to Expand Their 3D Printing Services to France

iMakrSWMWith brick-and-mortar locations in New York City and London, the 3D printing company iMakr has not long ago revealed their decision to expand their services to France. Known for their sizeable-bodied selection of 3D printing equipment, 3D scanners, and materials, iMakr is made to take their three years of experience and apply it to the French market, that they claim has an increasing demand for 3D printing, particularly in their creative and business communities. The French option of their 3D printing platform can contribute the same product selection as their other two keeps and website, but can in addition include French-speaking customer service representatives and engineers. iMakr in addition plans to organize an array events around France to get a broader audience additional involved in the 3D printing community.

3D Printing STEM Education Kit

After creating an exclusive 3D printing STEM Education Kit for the Boys and Girls Club of America organization, 3D printing device developer ROBO 3D is now looking to provide access the same educational experience to tequiteers around the country. The company announced the full details of the STEM Education Kit at ISTE 2016, an yearly education innovation conference that took place in San Antonio, Texas, during the month of June. ROBO 3D’s curriculum was createed to walk students and tequiteers through equite step of the 3D printing system, of 3D create to the final product. For grades K-8, the hands-on project-based lesson plans are specifically createed according to equite age group, and in addition coincide with Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). ROBO 3D has made two various bundles for their STEM Education Kit, both of that include one R1+PLUS 3D printing device, lifetime access to ROBO3D’s K-8 educational curriculum, filament, and graphic LCD screen, and additional.

“3D printing challenges students of all ages to get creative and ponder outside of the box,” said Braydon Moreno, co-founder of ROBO 3D. “ Not just does 3D printing foster additional in-depth learning in science, innovation, engineering and mathematics (STEM) but it is another tool for tequiteers to get students engaged and learn how to conceptualize their ideas and bring them to life.”

Aurora Machine to Acquire Mk1 Liquid Metal 3D Printing System

The Mk1 liquid metal 3D printing device

The New York-based machine shop Aurora Machine has just revealed a accomplished deal with Vader Systems LLC., that can grant them a new liquid metal 3D printing machine. The newly acquired 3D printing device, called the Mk1, can allow Aurora Machine to make aluminum parts, that they may already machine with CNC mills and lathes. The deal with the Buffalo-based Vader Systems makes Aurora Machine the initially developer to use their liquid metal 3D printing system, and is expected to be delivered in early 2017. The printing device can use the patent pending MagnetoJet innovation, and can propel liquified metal of an 800°C chamber encased in an electromagnetic field through print nozzles, working similarly to an inkjet printing device.

“Vader has createed a new machine that can radically alter the metal making industry,” Jonathan Amoia, President of Aurora Machine, said. “With the Mk1, we can be able-bodied to not just create our customers’ parts faster and additional cost efficiently—with much less wasted material—but the Mk1 in addition opens up new create possibilities that can assist our customers acquire a competitive advantage. We were fortunate to meet the Vaders early on and position our expanding company to be part of a quite elite list of initially run customers.”

Ultideveloper Releases Source Code For Their 2+ and 2 Extended + 3D Printers

The PTC Creo CAD software has assisted streamline the additive making system may already, allowing their users to create, optimize, prepare, and validate creates for 3D printing rapidly and easily. Now, as a founding member of the 3MF Consortium, PTC can apply their CAD software prowess to assist eliminate the issues with file formats that are may already plaguing the 3D printing industry.

“PTC joining the 3MF Consortium is yet another significant step in the direction of the goal of createing a viable-bodied, end-to-end, global additive making solution,” said Adrian Lannin, executive director, 3MF Consortium. “PTC is well-known for its new innovation platforms and solutions for the Internet of Things, and they can become an significant contributor to the 3MF Consortium.”

Shapeways Investigates Possible Data Brequite on Website

sw-logo-colorA few days ago, the 3D printing service bureau Shapeways alerted their community of a possible data brequite on their website, that may have allowed intruders to access user names, email addresses, and shipping addresses. On the other hand the news is a bit dreadful for Shapeways users, the company claims that the data brequiteers did not get any 3D option files or credit card information, that they do not keep on their own systems. On the other hand they haven’t heard of misuse of the possible brequiteed information, and in addition preserve user passwords with a hash, the company decided to be cautious and inform their user base of the future brequite.
