Canal Winchester, OH. I want to share a little success story with you all. I’ve decided that since I found this little guy in the pocket of a clean pair of jeans, I’d better tell everyone about it.

A few weeks ago, Steve Clark and I were trying to come up with ‘The Perfect Handout’ for trade shows and gatherings. We wanted something that could show the possibilities for HP’s Multi Jet Fusion technology and to help ‘unlock’ the door for this kind of thinking.

My first job ever was at a car wash. I worked there for 5 years and during that time I worked at many promotional events. It felt like cheating when we would talk to people that had never been to our car wash and we were able to simply put a coin in their hand. The coin was good for a free wash and even though it was free, ordinary people weren’t rushing to the building. The thing that got them to my wash… Was finding that silly coin in the dryer or the cup holder in their car on a day off work.

We combined this experience with something that is produced through traditional manufacturing, a poker chip. After only a few tweaks in the CAD by Steve, we were able to create this. Something so simple, yet still complex due to its traditional manufacturing restrictions.

The greatest thing about these as promotional items is that we are able to change the text and logo on the fly. We have had the opportunity to produce variants of this design for other businesses and organizations to use as custom items for their events. The possibilities are endless and customization is free with additive manufacturing.

Adaptive3D™, an additive manufacturing polymer resin supplier delivering tough, strain-tolerant and flexible materials, announced that it has secured Series A financing from a syndicate co-led by DSM Venturing and Applied Ventures. DSM Venturing is the strategic funding arm of Royal DSM, a global science-based company active in sustainable living, nutrition and additive manufacturing, and Applied Ventures is the venture capital arm of Applied Materials, a provider of materials engineering solutions. Also joining the round are Chemence, a multinational materials and adhesives supplier, and current investors led by Mary McDermott Cook and the late Margaret McDermott, whose father and husband, respectively, founded Texas Instruments in 1951.

Adaptive3D printable photoresins are targeting the high-throughput manufacturing of complex 3-dimensional plastic and rubber parts, with unmatched mechanical properties, in open-air production environments. Royal DSM and Applied Materials provide the cornerstones of an emerging additive manufacturing ecosystem that will help Adaptive3D as it aims to deliver materials-centric solutions to global companies in consumer, healthcare, industrial, transportation and oil and gas sectors.

“Adaptive3D seeks to challenge the cost, throughput and performance in markets today dominated by traditional injection molding, blow molding and other thermoplastic processing techniques,” said Adaptive3D founder and CEO, Walter Voit. “By delivering lightweight, sustainable, micro-latticed structures with superior thermal, chemical, optical and mechanical properties, Adaptive3D seeks to drastically increase the utilization of plastics and rubbers in end applications using additive manufacturing.”

“At DSM we believe that the age of additive manufacturing for industrial applications is, in fact, the age of materials,” said Hugo Da Silva, DSM VP of Additive Manufacturing. “Adaptive3D’s engineered photoresins enable new design paradigms in end applications. Working together with Applied Materials allows us to think globally about big problems at scale and offer big ecosystem solutions.”

“Applied Materials is a global leader in semiconductor processing and patterning with light and e-beam technology,” said Om Nalamasu, President of Applied Ventures and CTO of Applied Materials. “Adaptive3D’s photoresins coupled with large-area processing and advanced patterning techniques could potentially deliver robust materials-based solutions at high throughput and low cost across multiple industry verticals.”

“There are only a handful of chemical companies around the world with the global supply chain, distribution channels and application expertise to drive change in how the world manufactures plastics,” said Voit, “and we are thrilled to have Royal DSM, one of them, ranked as one of the world’s most sustainable companies, partnering with Adaptive to further develop its engineered materials.

Aerosport completes entire supercar model for SCG Racing using only in-house 3D printing capabilities.

While 2D renderings can help to communicate a product concept well enough, there is something to be said about seeing a concept as a physical, three-dimensional object. This marketing reality has not been lost on manufacturers and designers, who are increasingly turning to additive manufacturing to tactilely visualize design and product concepts.

Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus, a boutique manufacturer of high-performance racing and road cars, recently partnered with Aerosport Modeling & Design to 3D print a small-scale model of its 2019 SCG 004S supercar—a planned luxury vehicle that has not yet gone into production. The 3D printed model of the car was presented in the manufacturer’s showroom to promote the new line of vehicles.

“When we got the call on this project, I thought about how cool it would be to produce the entire model with only our in-house 3D printing capabilities,” commented Geoff Combs, the owner of Aerosport Modeling & Design, a company specializing in the production of high quality prototypes and show models.

Indeed, the company utilized a range of 3D printing technologies to bring the one-fifth scale car model to life, including its RSPro 600 from UnionTech and HP’s Multi Jet Fusion technology.

“We knew it was very possible for us to do now because of our recent investments new 3D printing technology,” Combs elaborated. “In 2017, we had purchased new stereolithography 3D printer from UnionTech, the RSPro 600, with a large build platform of 600 mm x 600 mm x 500 mm (23.6” x 23.6” x 19.6”). Around the same time, we also added HP’s Multi Jet Fusion technology to support other customers’ 3D print production needs.”

The vehicle’s body panels, chassis and tires were all 3D printed out of PA12 using HP’s technology. Notably, all these parts were strategically split into various smaller components so that the printer’s build space was maximized. For instance, the hood design was split into two, while the chassis was separated into four pieces and the rest of the parts were printed in 12 pieces.

The vehicle’s window sections, wheels and brake rotors were printed on the UnionTech 3D printer using Somos EvoLVe 128, a highly durable photopolymer suitable for printing fine details.  All these parts were finished and painted. Other high feature finish pieces, including mirror headlight housings, exhaust tips and headlight taillight lenses were printed using an unspecified SLA machine and various Somos materials.

By using its in-house 3D printing technology, Aerosport Modeling & Design says it was able to print the vehicle model within just five weeks. The whole project, from first concept conversation to the final model’s delivery to Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus, reportedly took three months.

Measuring 36 inches in length and 15 inches in width, the 3D printed supercar model is a sight to behold. Understandably, the presentation of the 3D printed vehicle by Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus at its showroom had just the effect the company hoped for as it garnered excitement and interest from prospective buyers.

Presently, Scuderia Cameron Glickenhaus is preparing to begin the production of full-scale prototypes for the SCG 004S supercar in 2019. By 2020, the company plans to be producing about 250 cars per year. This production could take place at a production facility in Connecticut that the company has hinted at buying. At this stage, the car manufacturer says it is already accepting deposits for the new vehicle model.
