Designing a Space Mouse Case

At times, a customer will come to us with an idea whether it is a hand sketch, a picture, or a simple drawing with dimensions on it in hopes of creating a prototype by 3D printing it. Here, at Cimquest, we have all the tools needed to create and produce these ideas and bring them to life. To illustrate this, we have created a portable case to carry a 3D Connexion Wireless Space Mouse and USB, since there was nowhere to place the USB receiver when carrying the mouse around. We still had the molded pulp packaging, which contains the cavity of the space mouse, with a perfect fit, so our first task was to capture this geometry. We used Geomagic's Capture scanner for this task, which scans at a resolution of .007." As it rotates and scans, it aligns each scan to the next and then easily stitches them together as one clean mesh file. Next, we used Design X to reverse engineer the geometry into an editable CAD model. Once we recreated what we needed, we exported out the geometry and the Feature Manager Tree to SOLIDWORKS. In SOLIDWORKS is where the engineering happens. After completing the bottom [...]

HP 3D High Reusability PA 12

By | 2018-03-07T09:02:02+00:00 March 7th, 2018|Categories: 3D Printing / Additive Mfg, HP Multi Jet Fusion Technology|0 Comments

In recent years, advancements in additive manufacturing and materials science have made it possible to build stronger parts with greater complexity. With the release of new and refined engineering materials, we're seeing more and more cases of companies entering the world of production 3D printing. HP is on the forefront of materials innovation and today we'll take a look at one of their notable developments, High Reusability PA 12. High Reusability PA 12 was HP's first 3D material available with the launch of their Jet Fusion series. It is a high strength, multi-purpose thermoplastic that enables industry-leading powder reusability. With PA 12, you can produce high-density, watertight parts with balanced property profiles. Below are some of the key specifications. You can see that it has an impressive tensile strength and relatively high heat deflection temperature. This material also provides great chemical resistance to oils, greases, and alkalis. All of these attributes make it great for producing both prototypes and functional end-use parts, with fine detail and dimensional accuracy. It is also optimal for post-finishing processes. Aside from these important characteristics, PA 12 allows you to achieve the lowest cost per part, at up to half the cost of comparable extrusion-based [...]

Lubrizol Introduces First 3D Printing Materials

By | 2018-03-05T08:38:22+00:00 March 5th, 2018|Categories: 3D Printing / Additive Mfg, HP Multi Jet Fusion Technology|0 Comments

(Reprint from https://www.tctmagazine.com) Parts manufactured in TPU with the Multi Jet Fusion process. Lubrizol, a specialty chemicals company, has introduced its first three 3D printing material products after its entry into the additive market. The Ohio-based company has followed the likes of BASF, SABIC, and Clariant into the industry to offer its expertise, particularly in the development of thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) materials, to those pushing AM from a prototyping tool to a volume manufacturing one. Though making the announcement at TCT Asia, Lubrizol was keen to emphasize the launch of its Estane TPU soft; flexible to hard; and rigid grades were merely the start. The three materials have been developed for extrusion-based processes, but the company is also targeting Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) and, as per its involvement with HP’s Open Applications and Materials Program, Multi Jet Fusion (MJF). "Following the recently-announced partnership with HP, Lubrizol continues to expand our presence within the fast-growing space of 3D Printing,” commented David Pascual, Lubrizol Marketing Manager, in a company press release. “This event offers a great opportunity to further showcase our broad TPU portfolio aiming to serve all thermoplastic 3D printing technologies including FDM, SLS and MJF. By combining our [...]

HP Unveils 4 Lower-Cost Jet Fusion 3D Printers

By | 2018-03-02T08:38:01+00:00 March 2nd, 2018|Categories: 3D Printing / Additive Mfg, HP Multi Jet Fusion Technology|0 Comments

HP Inc. recently revealed the next evolution of its 3D printing business with the unveiling of four new Jet Fusion 3D printer models that will feature the same technology of the original models, but with a smaller footprint and lower cost to reach a broader set of customers. The expanded Jet Fusion lineup will include models that can print full-color objects as well as models that just do black-and-white. Capabilities include printing at high speeds—up to 52 parts in 15 hours. Pricing will start in the $50,000 range and will reach into the $100,000 range. That's in comparison to the existing Multi Jet Fusion models, which are priced in the $300,000 range. "We're expanding the portfolio. You can see we're putting a lot in place. [3D printing] is a market that's growing at a 30 percent CAGR, and we're actually accelerating the market with our entry," said Stephen Nigro, president of HP's 3D printing business, in an interview with CRN. "We see this taking off into the 2020-plus timeframe — closer to 2020 than 2025." The ultimate vision, he said, is "changing how the world designs and manufactures." Along with the lower pricing, the new Jet Fusion 3D printers differ [...]

HP Accelerates the Path to Industrial 3D Manufacturing

By | 2018-01-31T08:25:31+00:00 January 31st, 2018|Categories: 3D Printing / Additive Mfg, HP Multi Jet Fusion Technology|0 Comments

HP Jet Fusion 32 4200 printers 3D printing is one of the most disruptive technologies of our time, spearheading a new 4th Industrial Revolution that will radically change the way we conceive, design, produce, distribute, and consume pretty much everything. But until now, 3D printing hasn’t been a viable means of large-scale industrial manufacturing (think big factories) because of prohibitively expensive production costs and limited technology. In order to realize HP’s vision of digitally transforming the $12 trillion global manufacturing industry, the economics of 3D printing needed to be completely rewritten. Recently, HP announced that it has smashed that economic barrier and paved the way for cost-effective, industrial-scale 3D manufacturing with the new Jet Fusion 3D 4210 Printing Solution. The new solution increases production volume for HP Jet Fusion 3D printers by enabling continuous operation, greater overall system efficiency, and the ability handle larger quantities of 3D printing materials, while significantly lowering production costs with reduced pricing on HP’s 3D materials and shared service contracts. When put together with HP’s industry-leading Multi Jet Fusion technology, those enhancements double the existing “break-even point” at which 3D printing remains cost-effective to an unprecedented 110,000 parts, and drastically reduces the cost-per-part, [...]

3D Printing HP Labs Innovation

Progress in 3D authentication and identification brings 3D manufacturing closer Multi-jet-fusion printed part on the left and a high-resolution scan of the indicated portion of it on the right showing the micro surface structure used for authentication. An HP Labs investigation into accurately identifying and authenticating 3D-printed objects is helping enable a future where parts for high performance machines like jet engines are routinely printed to order. It may also aid the development of new systems for tracking physical objects of any kind on a massive scale. “To use a 3D printed part in a machine like an aero-engine, you need to be able to confidently identify and track that part after it has been printed from a known and trusted printer,” observes Bristol, UK-based researcher Stephen Pollard. One way to do that would be to add a unique identifier like a bar code to each printed item. But Pollard and his colleagues in HP’s Print Adjacencies and 3D Lab wanted to come up with an approach that added no processing or materials cost to the 3D printing process and that would also have applicability for 3D objects created via more conventional methods. Their solution: a low cost, [...]
