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...

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
