Mimaki Europe, a leading manufacturer of inkjet printers and cutting systems, today announces that it has partnered with video game giant Minecraft along with a French government administration to deliver a nationwide competition aiming to raise awareness of social and environmental issues amongst young people. Having seen over 1200 entrants vying to create the ultimate sustainable town using Minecraft’s video game platform – some as young as thirteen – Mimaki’s 3DUJ-553 full-colour 3D printer enabled the winning design to be brought to life in vivid detail in an intricate 3D printed model gifted to the victor this October, marking a year since the competition originally began.

You are never too old for model building, not even at VMR. Therefore we were looking forward to the challenge to produce a model for the company Breyer from Singen. They needed a 1:10 scale model of a special machine for a trade fair. After preparing the data, all individual components were produced in our 3D printer. For an exhibition model with high demands on the surface, however, there is still no suitable additive process. For this reason, the individual parts were then ground by hand. Then the model was painted and assembled - just like in real model making.

Für Modellbau ist man nie zu alt, auch nicht bei VMR. Daher haben wir uns auf die Herausforderung gefreut ein Messemodell für die Firma Breyer aus Singen anfertigen zu dürfen. Diese benötigten für eine Messe eine Sondermaschine im Maßstab 1:10 als Modell. Nach Aufbereitung der Daten wurden alle Einzelbauteile bei uns im 3D-Drucker hergestellt. Für ein Messemodell mit hohen Ansprüchen an die Oberfläche gibt es jedoch noch kein geeignetes additives Verfahren. Aus diesem Grund wurden die Einzelteile anschließend per Hand geschliffen. Danach wurde das Modell lackiert und zusammengesetzt - wie im richtigen Modellbau eben.

AddUp and Dassault Systèmes announce the launch of new online training courses joining their respective expertise. The French software editor, which launches a new online training platform called “Learning Experience”, has chosen AddUp as its unique partner for the creation of training courses dedicated to metal additive manufacturing. In that respect, users of the 3DExperience suite who wish to train on the use of Catia Generative Design Explorer, Delmia and Simulia software will have at their disposal courses built jointly by AddUp and Dassault Systèmes.

With its compact size, BeAM's Modulo 250 is not only designed for the manufacturing of small parts: it is particularly suitable for material research activities. Many laboratories, universities and research centers adopt this Directed Energy Deposition (DED) machine. After the People's Friendship University (Russia) and LAPRAS in Brazil, BeAM announces two new deliveries, one for Carleton University in Canada and the other for Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems R&D in Japan.
