This post is Part 3 of the topic: Leverage and import organic shapes into CAD and today we will introduce you to Generative Design. In previous posts, we briefly discussed the value of having the ability to capture organic shapes for use in CAD design. To illustrate this process, scanned our engineer’s hand and then integrated that scan into CAD in order to design a rotating Nespresso Pod holder. Now, we will finalize the CAD design phase by using Fusion's Generative Design, to assist us during the model creation process. By now, the Nespresso pod holder is almost complete. The [...]

Last month, Cimquest attended the DSI Military Additive Manufacturing Summit & Technology Showcase in Tampa, FL. The show had a common theme this year that DoD structure and acquisition are the biggest impediments to better leveraging the benefits of Additive Manufacturing. Qualification and testing of AM parts and materials, but at this point, there is no doubt that 3D printing offers significant benefits for Readiness and Agility in the US Military. Interdepartmental cooperation, minimization of duplication of efforts and clearer processes that allow new ideas to be tried and tested were important themes at the conference. We are very proud [...]
Accelerate Innovation with Unified Design and 3D Printing RIZE and Dassault Systèmes recently made three key announcements: RIZE Receives Frost & Sullivan Award for Best Practices in Technology Innovation for Zero-Emissions Polymer Additive Manufacturing RIZE Announces $15M in Series B Funding from Innospark Ventures, Sparta Group LLC, Converge and Dassault Systèmes RIZE Announces Strategic Partnership with Dassault Systèmes to Drive Sustainable Innovation and Faster Time to Market SOLIDWORKS is the world leader in driving innovation. Design for Additive Manufacturing requires a rich set of applications from generative methodologies, material science and advanced simulation available in the SOLIDWORKS portfolio.

Desktop Metal recently added 316L stainless steel to their list of printable metals on the Studio System. Characterized by its corrosion resistance and performance at both high and low temperatures, 316L is a fully austenitic stainless steel ideal for harsh environments. Expert metallurgy is at the core of the Studio System, which was built to simplify even the most challenging aspects of metal fabrication—including easy material changes in under a minute. The introduction of 316L creates new opportunities for designers and engineers to prototype and produce parts for particularly demanding environments such as marine applications, chemical processing, and medical devices. [...]
The Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG) has revealed the recipients of its 3D printing scholarships. According to Brett Charlton, chair of the AMUG Scholarship Committee, these scholarships recognize a passion for additive manufacturing through a student and an educator. “Dr. Zhou and Ms. Sears perfectly reflect what our scholarships seek to reward,” stated Charlton.

Bourdeau Scholarship is supported by Cimquest. This scholarship has been gifted to Victoria Sears, a student at [...]
https://cimquesttv.wistia.com/medias/gz98m7c6hs?embedType=iframe&videoFoam=true&videoWidth=640 Desktop Metal’s Bound Metal Deposition platform will ultimately have access to a wide range of metals from the MIM industry and there are currently 30 materials in development. The two materials currently available are 17-4 & 316 stainless steel with more on the way.
