The best of Formnext 2019 in video!
This week we found the top 5 videos about 3D printing and the way additive manufacturing is shaping our society. The technology has infiltrated many sectors, from medical to automotive, so check out our weekly selection to keep up with the innovations! This week we look back on Formnext, the largest additive manufacturing show of the year and the innovations it brought! We have two rankings on the best 3D printers and applications we saw at the show! We also present three companies we met at the show, Formlabs, 3YOURMIND and Dassault Systèmes. If you enjoy these, you can view even more 3D printing videos on our Youtube channel. Hope you’ll enjoy and have a great Sunday!
Top 1: The Best Applications at Formnext!
Any event around additive manufacturing must present concrete application cases in order to show participants the full potential of the technology. This year, we saw many cars and motorcycles incorporating 3D printed parts, but also the famous Protolabs dress, and a 3D printed bridge. We have selected 5 applications of additive manufacturing, produced with different technologies and materials, for various sectors of activity. Between a dinosaur, a boat and a bicycle, 3D printing has once again shown its full potential!
Top 2: The Best 3D Printers at Formnext!
With more than 850 exhibitors this year at the Frankfurt show, it’s hard to miss all the 3D printers on display. We do not know the share of machine manufacturers for this 5th edition but they were many! So we wanted to show you the most impressive, 5 solutions that we had never seen before on the market. Metal, polymer, ceramic, you will be served!
Top 3: 3YOURMIND’s software suite for automated additive manufacturing!
It’s no secret that additive manufacturing requires different processes than conventional manufacturing. For this reason, AM automation software can enable companies to unite every stage of production to optimize the AM workflow. Having identified this need, 3YOURMIND is providing AM software to bring accuracy, speed and transparency to companies dealing with additive manufacturing order processing and order management. You can think of their solution as bringing all communications onto one digital platform. In other words, 3YOURMIND brings the tools necessary to standardize and automate background processes so that a company can focus on production.
Top 4: Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE Marketplace platform!
The 3DEXPERIENCE Marketplace from Dassault Systèmes is a platform that provides an end-to-end solution to connect designers with manufacturers! Usually, companies need to turn to 3D printing service providers to carry out their projects. Instead of creating yet another 3D printing service, 3DEXPERIENCE Make is a complete intermediation ecosystem that can connect a user to a 3D printing service by comparing the various providers’ offers. In order to learn more about the ecosystem and the benefits it seeks to bring to the additive manufacturing industry, we spoke to Benoît Schildknecht at the Formnext booth!
Top 5: Formlabs’ latest solution for the medical market!
Formlabs presented its new Form 3B printer at Formnext, and Stefan Hollaender told us more about this 3D printing solution for the dental & medical markets in the following interview! Formlabs is expanding its presence in Europe and developing solutions beyond their very popular Form 3 and Form 3L. Check it out!
