German 3D printing platform Replique and BASF Forward AM’s material experts are working together to create parts for home appliances manufacturer Miele, using a food safe 3D printing process for parts in contact with consumable goods. IDEX technology ensured a fast-tracked, profitable process for this low volume batch production.

Hot isostatic pressing (HIP) is a manufacturing process used to densify metal and ceramic parts. It is based on applying high levels of pressure (up to 2,000 bar / 200Mpa) and temperature (up to 2,000 °C) through an inert atmosphere to mainly metallic and ceramic parts and components, in order to densify them and give them excellent mechanical properties.


Formula 1 racecar components CT-scanned and analyzed in 20 minutes instead of a day.

Volume Graphics is proud to support Alpine F1 Team as part of a multi-year agreement. Since 2016, the team uses VGSTUDIO MAX for the analysis and visualization of CT data. CT and Volume Graphics have, since then, contributed to a significant increase in the analysis capabilities of Alpine F1 Team's test laboratory.

From the outset of metal additive manufacturing (AM) in the 1990s, its potential within countless industries was readily apparent. Over the course of 30 years, however, we have only witnessed a handful of cases where companies successfully transitioned AM parts into full production. Despite the benefits of performance and supply chain flexibility, metal AM has remained primarily for prototyping.

. The Barcelona-based manufacturer continues to expand its range of 3D printing solutions for the industrial workbench, to help Nissan factory in Barcelona (Spain) to innovate.

• The car manufacturer could roll out the technology to create parts and prototypes at other sites after a successful introduction in Europe.
• Nissan has printed 700 parts in-house so far, with some costing as little as 3.45€ to manufacture.
• It is one of the world’s first users of the BCN3D Smart Cabinet, which has been developed to protect and maintain 3D printing filaments within optimal conditions.

Dassault Systèmes has revealed the winners of the “3D Design Challenge,” which invited individuals to showcase their 3D skills by using Dassault Systèmes’ CATIA, SOLIDWORKS or xDesign applications to accurately create a 3D working model of an invention from Leonardo da Vinci’s codices, in real-life dimensions.
