Revolutionizing 3D printing across the world Today, 3D prints are usually either outsourced or centrally produced within corporations, needlessly costing valuable time and money. With Blueprinter, the 3D printing process is possible to insource within departments, and has become affordable for small businesses.
Blueprinter decentralizes the 3D printing by moving the printer from the central laboratory, or external service providers, to within the office – decreasing the time to market, saving significant money in prototyping, and keeping confidentiality for all original prototypes.
Danish 3D-printer manufacturer, Blueprinter is ready to show the new M-Flex flexible material and M2 printer model at Euromold November 25-28, 2014.
Blueprinter’s new M2 machine is now capable of producing parts up to three times as strong as the previous material available, while also offering a dramatic increased flexibility. M-Flex parts that can be twisted, and bent without compromising their form. Blueprinter’s New M2 printer model, including the updated Software, hardware and firmware, which supports printing with M-Flex powder is also exhibited at the booth in Hall 11, stand no. C123.
“With our new M2 printer and new stronger M-flex material, we will be able to print even more demanding parts for functional testing. This will enable both our existing and new customers to improve their time to market by reducing time and money spent on prototyping”, says Blueprinter CEO, Niels Appel.
The Blueprinter works by sintering plastic powder using off the shelf thermal print heads, (SHS Technology), The system does not require any expensive lasers or Nitrogen supply and works in a normal atmosphere. Thus reducing the investment cost to end users. All un-used material can be re-used for future builds....
A selection of museum artefacts, starting from prehistoric times, can now be downloaded as 3D models to print at home.
There's a surefire way to class up your joint: a few ancient artefacts just, you know, casually laying about, looking all ancient and classy. Now, you might be thinking that you're going to have a hard time both locating and paying for ancient artefacts -- but there's a way you can turn your lounge into a museum while not breaking the bank, and adding the niftiness of modern technology: 3D printing.
The artefacts in question are actual, real artefacts, from museums in Europe. They have turned into 3D models with the help of Artec, whose Spider and Eva scanners were used to scan artefacts from the Regional History Museum of Varna and the Regional History Museum of Pernik in Bulgaria -- a region of great cultural variance and significance in centuries and millennia past.
The over 150 artefacts, available through 3D design startup Threeding, include sculptures, gravestones, plaques, reliefs, hosehold items and religious symbols, from prehistoric times through Antiquity, the Middle Ages and into the Early Modern Period. During those centuries, the regions of Bulgaria saw visitation and occupation by the Roman Empire, the Greeks, the Thracian Kingdom, the Byzantine Empire, the Bulgarian Empire and the Ottoman Empire -- marking a wide variety available in the Threeding store....
