Formlabs introduces five new resins: Flexible 80A, a clear, flexible resin, and four new resins for dental and medical applications.
Functional 3D digitizes and improves mechanical parts with reverse engineering tools. MakerPoint has helped Functional3D with the process of implementing 3D scanning in their workflow. Using a Shining 3D scanner for quality control allows them to create a optimized workflow through digital fabrication, no matter the distance.
MakerPoint is happy to facilitate the new collaboration between miniFactory and NLR (Royal Netherlands Aerospace Centre), who have signed a collaboration agreement to provide recognition of the certification process for aerospace industry parts manufactured using the FFF 3D printing technology. The project is focused on printed carbon fiber reinforced high-performance polymers and metal-filled polymers. The study will be using miniFactory’s ULTRA 3D printer together with the Aarni process monitoring system. MakerPoint delivers the printer and materials, servicing and training.
To clean SLA prints from a Formlabs printer, isopropanol (IPA) is not always optimal in certain environments. In that case, TPM might be a good alternative.
