The 3D Printing Boom is Coming

The 3D Printing Boom is Coming In the last two videos Tasha Keeney, US-based analyst for thematic fundie ARK Invest, has shared fascinating insights on how Star Trek-like technologies like driverless cars and drone ambulances are about to change the world. In her third iteration on thematic supertrends, Tasha discusses 3D printing, which promises to revolutionise the manufacturing process by collapsing the time between design and production, giving designers the ability to create radical new products with less waste and at a fraction of the cost. Here, she explains the theme to the uninitiated, how it could disrupt the aerospace and healthcare markets, and ARK’s top stock for the...

The 3D Printing Revolution

The 3D Printing Revolution Three-dimensional printing promises new opportunities for more sustainable and local production. But does 3D printing make everything better? This film shows how innovation can change the world of goods. Is the way we make things about to become the next revolution? Traditional manufacturing techniques like milling, casting and gluing could soon be replaced by 3D printing -saving enormous amounts of material and energy. Aircraft maker Airbus is already benefiting from the new manufacturing method. Beginning this year, the A350 airliner will fly with printed door locking shafts. Where previously ten parts had to be installed, today that’s down to just one. It saves a lot of manufacturing steps. And 3D printing can imitate nature’s efficient construction processes, something barely possible in conventional manufacturing… READ MORE   The 3D printing revolution is finally here The move toward distributed manufacturing was expected to be a slow process. Then the coronavirus changed everything… As COVID-19 wreaks havoc on global supply chains, a trend of moving manufacturing closer to customers could go so far as to put miniature manufacturing plants in people’s living rooms. Most products in Americans’ homes are labeled “Made in China,” but even those bearing the words “Made in USA” frequently have parts from China that are now often delayed. The coronavirus pandemic closed so many factories in China that NASA could observe the resultant drop in pollution from space, and some products are becoming harder to find… READ...

3D Printed Heat Exchanger Has Venture Capitalists Wanting More

3D Printed Heat Exchanger Has Venture Capitalists Wanting More

Fuller’s gizmo is a heat exchanger – a device that is found in fridges, air-conditioners, power stations and, in this case, cars – and a product of 3D printing. Its internal geometry is so complex it can’t be made any other way. It’s half the weight of similar devices, significantly more efficient – and already has Silicon Valley venture capitalists keen to know more. Why? Because the heat exchanger industry will be reportedly worth $20 billion within the next five years. READ MORE I’m very excited to see how Additive Manufacturing can improve heat exchanger performance. It will enable complex designs that would be impossible to braze, either to fit into odd shaped spaces, to enhance the heat transfer coefficient, or to reduce the pressure drop by smoothing flow transitions and entry effects. Designs could also easily be customized or tailored to the air flow to increase performance in high-flow regions or save weight in dead air spots. I would also be very interested in seeing how printed surface treatments could be applied to internal, irregular...

3D Printing Firms Stratysys vs HP – Which 3D Printing Stock is the Long Term Stock Buy?

3D Printing Firms Stratysys vs HP – Which 3D Printing Stock is the Long Term Stock Buy?

Strategic moves Its new releases like the Objet500 Connex3 Color Multi-material 3D Printer have not only strengthened its product line, but also hopes and expectation in the Multi-Material 3D Printing business that will fetch comprehensively better results for the company in the coming quarters. Stratasys, hence, expects the printer’s triple jet technology, which allows users to combine color with a virtually unlimited combination of rigidity, flexibility, and transparency, to attract more users. In addition, the company is coming up with new apps for the MakerBot replicator platform with unmatched speed, reliability, quality, and connectivity that will certainly increase its market share in the 3D printing business. Moreover, its technology is very user friendly and easy-to-use, and offers reliable desktop 3D printing platforms with its new apps and focuses to cover the full range of consumer, prosumer, and professional users. Additionally to supplement growth in its product line, it has recently announced new PolyJet material for the Connex platforms, including Digital ABS2, which creates realistic, precise prototypes that are heat-resistant. The company anticipates better results from its new Connex3 Color 3D Printer that is combined with the three new color-enabling materials. Moreover, its strategy to expand its business overseas in regions such as Singapore, Japan, and China looks lucrative. Also, Stratasys is looking for a solid start with its recently established and fully-owned subsidiary in Korea. In addition, Stratasys has also entered into a distribution agreement with Dell to provide MakerBot Replicator 3D printers bundled with Dell Precision Workstations for small and medium-sized businesses. This will definitely enhance the reach of Stratasys’ printers going forward. Further, it’s very interesting to notice that Stratasys is seeing growth opportunities in the dental and medical fields as well, and to tap that market, it has announced the Objet Eden 260V Dental Advantage 3D printer and VeroGlaze dental material for Objet Eden V and OrthoDesk printers. Overall, the company has performed significantly well and I think it will continue to perform well on the back of strategic investments in R&D investments, expansion plans, and entry into new market segments. HP’s move But, investors must keep an eye on HP’s move into the 3D printing market as it sees strong growth opportunity here. Also, HP’s management is of the opinion that worldwide sales of 3D printers and related software and services will grow at a terrific pace to hit $11 billion by 2021. This will be a solid jump from just $2.2 billion two years ago. Also, according to Reuters, HP CEO Meg Whitman believes that “HP’s in-house researchers have resolved limitations involved with the quality of substrates used in the process, which affects the durability of finished products.” Therefore, Stratasys has to accelerate its business and ensure that its 3D printing offerings are cutting...
