Cimquest Receives 1st HP 580 Series 3D Printer in New England

By |2019-01-10T16:47:58+00:00January 10th, 2019|Categories: 3D Printing / Additive Mfg, HP Multi Jet Fusion Technology|0 Comments

We are excited to be the first company in New England to receive our new HP 580 Series 3D Printer! The machine is fully installed, and we have started to build parts. Tailored for small/medium-sized development teams, design firms, and universities, HP’s new printer is a compact solution for producing injection mold quality parts. This automated system integrates material mixing and loading, printing, and reclaiming material in one machine. Teams can accelerate their design cycle by producing prototype iterations or functional parts without tooling, at a faster pace compared with traditional 3D printing technologies. Learn more about this machine here. [...]

Formlabs Announces New Elastic Resin Material

By |2019-01-09T08:04:41+00:00January 9th, 2019|Categories: 3D Printing / Additive Mfg, FormLabs, News / Promos|0 Comments

Formlabs just announced their latest new engineering resin. This soft engineering resin (50A Shore durometer) is suitable for prototyping parts normally produced with silicone that need to bend, stretch and compress. Due to its high elongation (160%) and good tear strength (19.1kN/m) it will hold up to repeated cycles without tearing. Elastic resin is also translucent which is ideal for healthcare and medical applications where visual simulation is required.

Moldex3D Tech Tip: Import Curves

By |2019-01-02T09:39:22+00:00January 2nd, 2019|Categories: 3D Printing / Additive Mfg, Tech Tips|0 Comments

Import Curves in Moldex3D for Quick Venting Setting Moldex3D’s pre-processing tools enable you to set venting. The main purpose of venting is to allow the air trapped during the injection molding process to escape and prevent surface defects, such as burning, flash, short shots and air traps, and severe volume shrinkage. Importing curves in Moldex3D’s venting setting eliminates the need for manually selecting the venting boundary. It provides you with a more streamlined workflow, reducing time and effort. It only requires the following simple steps to complete the vent setting: Create venting curves → Set Moldex3D project → Set Computation [...]

3D Printing For High Thermal Stability

By |2018-12-28T08:29:44+00:00December 28th, 2018|Categories: 3D Printing / Additive Mfg, FormLabs|0 Comments

Formlabs is pleased to announce the latest formulation of High Temp Resin, part of their library of Engineering Resins for the Form 2 desktop stereolithography (SLA) 3D printer. High Temp Resin offers the highest heat deflection temperature (HDT) among Formlabs resins and is suitable for printing detailed, precise parts with high thermal stability. The new formulation, shipping now, has an HDT of 238 °C @ 0.45 MPa and improved elongation to decrease brittleness. Over the course of the last year since Formlabs first released this material, they talked with a variety of engineers and product designers using it to better [...]

Autodesk Netfabb Lattice Assistant and Lattice Commander

By |2018-12-12T08:29:47+00:00December 12th, 2018|Categories: 3D Printing / Additive Mfg, Netfabb, Tech Tips|0 Comments

Today we are going to cover how to use Autodesk Netfabb to create lattices with two of Netfabb’s internal tools, Lattice Assistant and Lattice Commander. Autodesk Netfabb is Additive Manufacturing software that allows you to repair, prepare and build your parts. Lattice Assistant and Lattice Commander are currently available as tech previews, and included in Netfabb Premium and Ultimate. The first tool we will discuss is Lattice Assistant, which combines hollowing, lattice generation and merging with tools to generate perforation and the matching plugs for drainage of unused material. Shown below is a connecting rod used for one of our [...]

Formnext Recap

By |2018-12-06T09:18:05+00:00December 7th, 2018|Categories: 3D Printing / Additive Mfg, Events|0 Comments

Cimquest recently visited the FormNext 2018 trade show in Frankfurt, Germany. FormNext is the leading 3D printing global exhibition and conference with over 26,000 visitors and 632 exhibitors. It was held in Hall 3 with a floor space of 36,000-square-meter and will be expanding to 58,000 square meters next year due to the increasing demand. Six of our 3D Printing partners were exhibiting this year and we had a chance to check out their showcases. The first partner was Rize, who had multiple new announcements. First is their new materials RIZIUM CARBON and RIZIUM ENDURA, which are both fiber-reinforced thermoplastics. The next announcement [...]
