HP have announced the imminent release of a full colour 3d printer, in line with their production systems creating functional prints in engineering grade materials. The new system is an exciting new development that will occupy a new and unique segment within the additive manufacturing market, for the first time offering truly functional full colour parts.

Last week saw the annual pilgrimage to Germany for Formnext, the world’s leading exhibition for additive manufacturing and the next generation of intelligent industrial manufacturing methods. For us at Europac3D it represents a chance for us to meet many potential customers and also our key suppliers, in particular for HP and Uniontech. Forging new relationships from the US and China is a key part of the visit and understanding precisely the new developments in the pipeline for 2018 from the key decision makers and developers. The highlight for Europac3D, this year, was the announcement of 2 new materials, PA11 and PA12 with glass beads for the HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D Printer.

The latest demand in fashion, personal accessories and even healthcare is for creating products that are customized to the individual. For years personalized and bespoke products have commanded a premium price whether a suit from Saville Row or a bespoke insole for a shoe, but advances in 3D printing and scanning mean that such a customized approach can not only be extended into other product areas, but can be done so at a fraction of the cost.

Do you remember the excitement of new equipment arriving at your school? Whether it was a new overhead projector and fresh pack of acetate sheets or a new TV on wheels, the memories stick with us and often so does the topic the equipment was conveying or demonstrating.
Technology has come on leaps and bounds from the early 00’s and many schools have now added a 3D printer to their inventory, but how does this help with school-based learning and what does it mean for the future generations?

Here at Europac3D there are a few of us who are keen cyclists and last week we thought we would set ourselves a little challenge. We wanted to test how tough is the new PA12 Nylon material from the HP Jet Fusion 3D printer; obviously we could look up the specs on the data sheet, but sometimes ‘the proof of the pudding is in the eating’ as some people might say.
We decided to see if we could replace the existing seat post and seat, including all of the associated assembly components, clamps, rails, bolts etc, and build it all in one piece with a little modification here and there.
