The product development arm of Speedo is focused at their research and development center, using their Stratasys PolyJet technology for advanced, multi-material prototyping and design validation.
In today's Tech Thursday post, our team of Applications Specialists cover how to maximize throughput of your Fortus additive manufacturing technology, providing their personal recommendations, as well as outlining the individual steps in Insight. This procedure is applicable to all printers in the Fortus family, including the 250mc, 380/450mc, and the 900mc.
For a number of years, Cimetrix Solutions has been involved in a wide variety of student-driven inititatives, partnering with some of the nation's most innovative groups and institutions to implement additive manufacturing solutions for a variety of applications. This year, the entire team of Applications Specialists at Cimetrix was thrilled to be a part of Ontario's first racing submarine, through a partnership formed with University of Waterloo's Submarine Racing Team.
Additive Manufacturing is creating a process to actually ‘engineer’ and ‘design’ an Ankle-Foot Orthotic for a specific patient. Different amounts or types of material can be printed to provide a specified stiffness and allow areas of flexibility, based on the patient presentation. This exciting technology opens up an entirely new tool box that the clinician can use to enhance patient outcomes.
Researchers at McGill have been given a federal grant in order to research improvements in technologies used during surgery. More than $1.6 million will be used to train students who are developing those technologies, which include Stratasys 3D Printers.
This winter, we had the opportunity to provide continued support for QuiETS, a team out of ETS competing in the SAE Clean Snowmobile Challenge. The team approached our team of Applications Specialists with an all-new air intake design, looking to 3D Printing to create an end-use part rather than manufacturing it with traditional methods.
Stratasys reinvents 3D Printing. Again. Introducing the Stratasys J75 3D Printer - a Polyjet-based printing platform that delivers unprecedented product realism, combining multi-material printing with true full-color capability for the most versatile 3D Printing platform on the market today.
Insight software, included with all Fortus Production Series 3D Printers, offers unparalleled control when processing parts for specialized applications or containing complex geometries. The customizability of a number build parameters, including toolpath widths, allows the user to achieve high accuracy whilst enhancing part aesthetic & structural integrity of parts.
NASA engineers drew on ingenuity and advanced technology when designing cutting-edge equipment for space exploration. For example, about 70 of the parts that make up the rover were built digitally, utilizing production-grade Stratasys 3D Printers. The process, called Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Technology or additive manufacturing, creates complex shapes durable enough for Martian terrain.
