Top 5 videos: 3D printing with Neil Patrick Harris
This week, join actor Neil Patrick Harris and 3D printing YouTuber 3D Printing Nerd on the 87-day 3D printing adventure. Next, learn about amorphous metals. The manufacturer of 3D printers Trumpf has notably developed a printer compatible with these metals, which are both very resistant and elastic. Finally, we will meet you at Setforge. The French company uses the solutions offered by 9T Labs to size its production. In any case, we wish you a very happy Sunday!
Top 1: 3D printing with Neil Patrick Harris
Do you know Neil Patrick Harris? Sure. The American actor, well known for having played Barney Stinson in the sitcom “How I Met Your Mother”. In collaboration with 3D printing enthusiast 3D Printing Nerd, the Hollywood star completed an additive manufacturing project in which he used a 3D printer to produce two museum-quality frames. The project lasted 87 days in total, with an impressive result and Harris also seems happy with the implementation. You can see for yourself in the video how the frames were created step by step.
Top 2: Amorphous metals
Trumpf is a German manufacturer of industrial 3D printers serving the needs of many industries today. Below, the company presents amorphous metals. Also called metallic glasses, they are extremely strong and yet very elastic. Considered by Trumpf as “the new super material for 3D printing”, the properties of these metals would offer new perspectives to many sectors, such as medical, aerospace or robotics:
Top 3: CNC machining & 3D printing
In the manufacturing sector, two methods are regularly compared: CNC machining and 3D printing. The main difference between these two techniques is that one works additively while the other is subtractive. To find out what differentiates these two methods, Hubs, an online manufacturing platform that gives engineers on-demand access to a global network of manufacturing partners, offers a video to showcase their main accolades:
Top 4: 9T Labs & Setforge
9T Labs is a Swiss company developing composite 3D printing solutions. Thanks to its machines, the company is able to manufacture parts that are very resistant but also very light. This is why Setforge, a French company supplying spare parts to various industries, called on the services of 9T Labs. Using composite printers, and more specifically the Red Series range, Setforge now manufactures parts quickly and inexpensively.
Top 5: The FX20 printer
Markforged is now one of the recognized 3D printer manufacturers in the global additive manufacturing landscape. Recently, the American company unveiled the FX20 printer, the company’s largest and fastest machine. Capable of maintaining a temperature of 200 ° C and printing parts up to 525mm x 400mm x 400mm, the printer is suitable for many industries, such as aerospace.
