You Can Now Buy Your Own Piece of Design History: The Lily.MGX Pushed 3D Printing from Prototyping to Design

i.materialise

Until then, 3D printing was considered more of a prototyping technology. The designing process for the Lily.MGX lamp already started in 2002 and the task sounded very challenging at the time: Janne wanted to explore technology used for rapid prototyping by creating a commercially successful consumer product. To turn his idea into reality, Janne printed his design in Polyamide , a powder-based nylon plastic, which is 3D printed during a process known as Laser Sintering.

SABIC-Investing Globally in Capabilities and Equipment to Support the Development of High Performance Materials for Additive Manufacturing Processes and Other Emerging Technologies

Additive Manufacturing

During the discussion, you suggested materials will drive the additive manufacturing industry, more so than design, equipment or processes. Would it be fair to suggest the future growth of the additive industry is largely dependent upon the availability of more and better materials? Along those same lines, do you believe the development of new thermoplastic materials will create new processes and/or equipment?

3D printing will be huge, in the most boring and fascinating ways imaginable

3D Printing Review

I bought a (terrible) Acer tablet PC back in 2002, a full eight years before the first iPad. Costs are coming down, extrusion materials are becoming more varied, and projects range from an entirely 3D-printed R6 droid to giant 3D printers producing houses. Now, today desktop publishing has been overtaken by the Web, but back then, the idea that a small business could produce its own marketing materials — on demand — was transformative.

6 Best Publicly-Listed 3D Printing Companies

3D Printing Hub

Right now, some of the world’s largest companies have turned to 3D printing for rapid prototyping and manufacturing solutions. Huge companies that operate across several different industries such as Nike, Audi, and Airbus, have been increasingly dependent on 3D printing technology as an essential step in their manufacturing process. Although they have a wide range of prototyping abilities, the client base for ExOne is not yet large enough to stimulate significant growth.
