A glimpse inside Shapeways...

Recommended Posts

Not the same technologies we use, but hopefully interesting to the community... a glimpse inside Shapeways' facility. Interesting to see just how densely they pack their print beds... I think maybe Cura needs to step up it's game a bit on that one.... ;-)

Really cool to see!

I guess that EOS are making a lot of money these days ;) A lot of EOS P machines in the video.

Is there anyone in here with experience of the Eosint M2XX machines by chance?

The M series for sintering metal with laser, that is.

We have bought a 14 year old Eosint M250 eXtended second hand to our Makerspace but it seems to be a complex beast to operate and even get started...

    • Ultimaker Cura | a new interface
      We're not only trying to always make Ultimaker Cura better with the usual new features and improvements we build, but we're also trying to make it more pleasant to operate. The interface was the focus for the upcoming release, from which we would already like to present you the first glance.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
