Week in Review: Aug 29th to Sept 4th – Going Big!

Here we go, another news roundup ready for you.

This week is all about bigger printers and printing BIG! As the race to faster, larger 3D printers gets more and more exciting, EOS is improving its products with more lasers, upgraded print volume and speeds that could rival Carbon3D; in metal this is kind of a big deal. It’s a Guinness World Record week for Oak Ridge and their massive 5m plane wing trim-and-drill tool. Talking big in AM one cannot avoid talking about the MX3D bridge over an Amsterdam’s canal, and now many other companies (and startups!) are bringing their robotic arm printers out to play, first Stratasys, now Branch Technologies with impressive lattice structures for concrete walls.

Without further ado, let’s dig into this week’s huge (pun intended) news.

EOS to launch its biggest and fastest metal 3D printing system at IMTS 2016

EOS is to introduce its biggest and fastest additive manufacturing system to date at IMTS 2016 in Chicago (Sept. 12-17). Designed for industrial applications, the ultra-fast, quad-laser system builds on EOS DMLS and promises increased productivity, part quality and scalability. [It] offers a large build volume of 400 x 400 x 400 mm with four 400 Watt lasers operating independently. The exceptional beam and power stability ensures highest DMLS part quality and quadruples productivity.

Oak Ridge tool takes world record for largest 3D-printed object

Made from carbon fiber and ABS thermoplastic composite materials, the new [plane wing trim-and-drill tool] measures 5.3 x 1.7 x 0.5 m and weighs around 748 kg. To meet the requirements of the record, the item needed to be one solid piece of 0.3 cubic m, which a Guinness World Records judge confirmed at a ceremony. Printable in just 30 hours, it’s an impressive time and cost saver, considering the existing metal version currently takes about three months to manufacture.

Branch Technology on 3D-printing a better skeleton for concrete structures

Platt Boyd is the Founder and CEO of Branch Technology, a start-up in Chattanooga, Tennessee… . Their Cellular Fabrication (C-Fab) system combines industrial robotics and material science to 3D print a large-scale, optimized lattice system for concrete structures. In order to source the design for the first full-scale application of their system, Branch recently held the Freeform Home Design Challenge—the winning entry by WATG Urban Architecture Studio will start production in early 2017.
