3DXpert lattices & textures

13.04.2018

As seen at the Mach Show 2018, 3DXpert really does produce some amazing results for metal printing. It has a very large database of lattices and surfaces textures for a multitude of applications. Think about weight saving, reduced print time, better strength to weight ratio, defined surface roughness for improved fluid dynamics etc.

Some key points to note:-

• 3DXpert imports native CAD data, "not" STL

• 3DXpert is very fast

• 3DXpert toolkit and parameter options are vast

• 3DXpert has a database of amazing infills and lattices

• 3FXpert build simluation, predicts the geometry as affected by the heat of the process

• 3DXpert can be used with "ANY" 3D metal printer

Cimatron version 14 is released

29.03.2018

With over 200 new features and enhancements, Cimatron 14 offers major benefits and more user value to manufacturing shops across their entire range of operations. From Tool design through NC programming, this latest version helps to ensure that our customers are more productive than ever, in their competitive marketplace.

Cimatron v14

NC – New cutting strategies allow faster machining time with the use of cutters such as Barrel, Oval, Lens Tools. Overall reducing Rough machining time by an average of 20%. A new Guided Cleanup process allows controlling the milling direction of each region in Cleanup. Improved 5-axis Tilting toolpath and guiding curves for user
controlled tilting. A large number of new and improved capabilities that boost programming automation for plate machining, such as the Facing procedure, automatic Chamfer Recognition, wider Pocket Recognition capabilities and more functionality of Automated Drill as well as using templates for pocket automation.

Die – New integrated incremental analysis options enable the user to accurately simulate the design, and find design flaws before the manufacturing process. Users can see whether they have carrier or material problems, non-desirable punch results or SpringBack, as well as incorrect press force definitions.
New advanced Die design geometry tools such as Addendum faces and Fuzzy Offset were added to extend the application capabilities.

CAD for Tooling – Many long requested enhancements in Part, Assembly and Drafting were implemented for faster and easier design. New enhancements to the Mesh kernel of Cimatron with operations such as a new robust selection tool that was introduce for Split/Copy and Add/Remove commands. In addition, Advance 3D Text capability is now available for mesh and solid.

Mold & Electrode – New functions and enhancements for faster and safer Mold design such as Hole (Cooling) verification, Hole (Library) recognition and handling of ejectors with different diameters.

PLM Integration with Windchill – An integration with PTC Windchill PLM system. This Integration allows Windchill users who work with Cimatron files to perform Windchill operations (such as sync, check out/in, etc.) from within a Cimatron assembly or from the Cimatron browser.

CDG help school win Student F1 prize

29.03.2018

Thank you so much for making it possible for our team to reach race day. None of that could have been done without your generous sponsorship. At the competition we won the entry class competition and had a fantastic day. We may even enter development class next year. Thank you for making it possible.


Yours sincerely

FabPro now with Dental Biocompatible materials

24.03.2018

Digital Light Printing (DLP) technology uses a projector to image each layer within a photopolymer-based dental material for easy and precise printing, with the ability to build several smaller parts on a single platform for increased productivity. 3D Sprint™ software for print preparation and management provides an easy user interface, and changing materials and post-processing is easy with comprehensive solutions.FabPro 1000 Dental Models

  • Certified and Biocompatible Materials

    3D Systems is optimizing the recently announced FabPro 1000 desktop printer for compatibility with selected NextDent biocompatible materials for specific dental applications, starting with surgical guides and orthodontic and denture models.

  • Start to Finish Workflow

    The FabPro 1000 can be combined with other 3D Systems dental solution components to create a comprehensive and trusted workflow. This includes the NextDent LC-3DMixer for optimal stirring of materials, and the NextDent LC-3DPrint Box for UV post-curing.
