This year, Cimquest made the trek to Frankfurt Germany to attend and we had a chance to check out all six of our 3D printing vendors' product showcases.
The Mastercam 2019 release includes many new system enhancements that can be seen throughout the entire Mastercam line of products. This post will cover some of the big highlights. Advanced Toolpath Display Mastercam now displays toolpaths with different colors, based on the move type allowing you to set colors, change line style, line width, and other attributes. Analyze Enhancements After selecting an entity, Analyze Distance dynamically updates the distance as you move the cursor, allowing you to sample different positions on the screen with approximate distances, without requiring you to click a second point or restart the function. With Analyze Toolpath, you can choose to display the tool and holder as shaded or wireframe entities, and you can control the opacity of the tool and holder when they are displayed in shaded mode. Mesh Node Selection AutoCursor now recognizes the endpoints of Mastercam mesh vertices. It recognizes positions on all mesh vertices, or on vertices that reside along mesh edges, increasing flexibility during CAD creation and dimensioning. Simulator Enhancements Axis Control, available in Simulation mode, has been enhanced. The Axis Controller pane manually moves the axes. Use the sliders and buttons to jog the axes, check if the machine limits [...]
We just want to take this opportunity to express our gratitude for our customers. Without you, we wouldn't be where we are today. We sincerely hope you enjoy this special time of year. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. Please note that Cimquest will be closed this Thursday and Friday. We will be back to business on Monday, November 26th.

RIZE has enhanced the value of their RIZE ONE 3D printer by providing a compelling range of new materials, including carbon composite, to enable a new set of industrial applications. The current materials, RIZIUM™ ONE White and Black are already demonstrating their value in delivering strong and safe parts for functional prototyping, jigs, tools and fixturing and end-use service parts. RIZE recently added RIZIUM™ CARBON and will release an additional material called RIZIUM™ ENDURA in 2019. RIZIUM™ CARBON is based on an engineering-grade thermoplastic, reinforced with carbon fiber for a higher modulus and incredible visual finish. RIZIUM CARBON is ideal for applications such as functional prototyping for manufacturing. RIZIUM ENDURA, for its part, is a fiber-reinforced filament that offers high accuracy printing and high impact strength. RIZE says the new material is well suited for producing large functional parts. Notably, RIZIUM ENDURA is compatible with the XRIZE’s full-color inks.

Rize just announced their newest product, the XRIZE. The new XRIZE™ 3D printer will enable users to manufacture functional polymer and composite parts in full color. Like RIZE's first product, RIZE™ ONE, the experience of using the XRIZE 3D printer is as easy and safe as an office 2D printer. XRIZE will enable full-color prototypes for FEA and stress analysis, tooling with safety instructions, consumer products, package design, GIS mapping, anatomical parts for patient/clinician communication, pre-surgical planning and parts for marketing and the entertainment industry. XRIZE will be available for shipping in H1 2019 and will be priced at USD $55,000. And the best news . . . For a limited time, until December 27, 2018, if you pre-order XRIZE, you will receive a RIZE ONE included in the price. That's 2 printers for the price of 1.

XRIZE is the world's first desktop Industrial Additive Manufacturing solution for creating vibrant, full-color functional parts with minimal post-processing. Until now, users had to produce non-functional color parts or implement very expensive solutions, making tradeoffs between color, strength, and price. These tradeoffs have limited the expansion of additive manufacturing to users across the enterprise and inhibited true innovation. Moreover, companies had to purchase separate 3D printers to achieve varying capabilities, including office use, full color, end-use, and production parts and the ability to use carbon fiber and other materials. For the first time in the industry, XRIZE enables users to manufacture functional polymer and composite parts in full color. And since RIZE’s intelligent and innovative solutions focus on the user as much as the machine, XRIZE is easy to use, safe and enables markup to provide much-desired IP security, traceability, and branding. Like RIZE’s first product, RIZE™ ONE, the experience of using the XRIZE 3D printer is as easy and safe as an office 2D printer. Providing a safe, clean process, minimal pre- and post-processing and minimal material management, users throughout the enterprise, from engineering to marketing to the manufacturing floor, can use XRIZE to easily manufacture full-color prototypes for FEA and stress [...]
