How 3D Printing is Helping During the Coronavirus Pandemic

How 3-D printing is helping the US fight medical equipment shortages and the coronavirus pandemic To combat the medical equipment shortages caused by the coronavirus pandemic, GE Healthcare is using 3-D printing to make tools that accelerate ventilator production. Jeff Bezos’ space venture Blue Origin is leveraging 3-D printers to make plastic components for face shields. And with support from Adidas, digital manufacturing firm Carbon, in Silicon Valley, is using its highly elastic polymer featured in $200 Adidas running shoes to produce more than 15,000 face shields weekly for health-care workers caring for COVID-19 patients. Ford, Boeing, HP, Medtronic and the U.S. military are among the manufacturing powers funding, designing and producing a battery of protective gear and medical equipment to fill in supply shortages around the world. But it is 3-D printing firms, as well as a cottage industry of home-based 3-D design tinkerers, that are making a broader call to action possible. READ...

Markforged Wants to Simplify Manufacturing Process for 3D Printing and Raises $30 million for Industrial 3D Printing

Markforged raises $30 million for industrial 3D printing “A key early application of 3D printing is within the factory,” he wrote, in an email to VentureBeat. “The future of the factory is comprised of custom 3D printed parts that are incorporated into final products, and 3D parts printed to support the machines within the factories themselves.” 3D printing is indeed a hot sector that promises cheaper and faster manufacturing. Be it for sports shoes or food, several sectors are sniffing an opportunity. HP and Deloitte also recently announced that they are teaming up on 3D printing and digital manufacturing services. But when it comes to manufacturing, Mark is skeptical about the other players. “Other startups offer 3D printers that either cannot print a range of materials or are not printing parts strong enough to dramatically impact manufacturing,” he wrote.
