    3D From Nothing- Season 2 Episode 1- Tom talks to Velo3D salesman Paul Hollowaty

    3D From Nothing- Season 2 Episode 1- Tom talks to Velo3D salesman Paul Hollowaty

    Paul Hollowaty, at one point held to title of number 1 additive salesman in the World!  Now with Velo3D has a lot to say in this episode about the start of Velo3D and the the current business plan.  

    Paul talks about Benny Buller's original vision and how the contract manufacturing now works.

    The solution Velo3D has delivered to Lockheed Martin includes a Sapphire printer, Velo3D’s Flow print preparation software, its Assure quality assurance and control software, and its underlying Intelligent Fusion manufacturing process, which optimizes the additive manufacturing process by combining process simulation, geometry-based detection, and build process monitoring during print execution. This end-to-end solution gives customers the confidence that the mission-critical parts printed using Velo3D’s additive manufacturing technology preserve design intent. It also provides customers with the ability to produce identical parts across any Velo3D Sapphire printer, so as production needs increase, customers can merely add additional printers to their production facilities anywhere in the world or utilize Velo3D’s network of contract manufacturers.

    A recent article at 3Dnatives.com says "Velo3D points to advanced metal AM solutions, especially its own Sapphire® systems, as the solution to overcome these barriers. Industrial metal AM machines allow for more aerospace companies to turn confidently towards additive manufacturing. But how exactly will this be accomplished?

    Looking at each barrier individually, advanced metal systems have built-in solutions to overcome them, making metal 3D printing more reliable and easier for users. For example, a non-contact recoater arm in advanced AM systems eliminated issues with protruding surfaces, ensuring that there will be no recoater clashes. This in turn significantly reduces the likelihood of failed builds as well as provides for a smoother surface, allowing for less time in post-processing.

    When it comes to the question of software, advanced industrial metal systems work to integrate extreme process controls, resulting in better parts, printed faster, with metallurgical structural integrity. A robust workflow also ensures that not only is printing easy, as CAD files can be worked with directly and optimized within the machine, but processes are monitored, also reducing failures. Finally, the company points to superior gas ventilation present in these industrial solutions, allowing for the evacuation of accompanying soot and thus more rapid laser fusion... Velo3D concludes, “Advanced industrial metal AM technology has at last reached the point where it reliably delivers on the promise of unprecedented design freedom, shorter lead times, reduced development and production costs, and the highest-quality, fully-functional end-use parts for aerospace and defense.”

    3D From Nothing- Tom Gendich Discusses 3D Print video games, Harvard Patents,Loving Inventors and Metalmite's new Print Farm

    Today we have a great show planned! We will discuss a new Video Game for 3D Print enthusiasts, A way to 3D Print Covid test kits at home for less that $30! What Harvard has been able to patent this year already using 3D Printers, And How we love inventors here at Metalmite. Simon Sinek shares about his book, The Infinite Game. Metalmite finally gets the 7 printer- 3D Print Farm up and running. Now they can print 17-4 stainless steel, Inconel, Copper, and Tool steel along with teh Nylon, Onyx, carbon fiber they have always printed.

    3D From Nothing- Interview with Kevin Carr of Master Graphics, HP Printers, 3D Systems, and Printing Jellyfish

    3D From Nothing- Interview with Kevin Carr of Master Graphics, HP Printers, 3D Systems, and Printing Jellyfish

    Today we interview Kevin Carr, President of Master Graphics. Kevin is driving the adoption of 3D print to aid clients in shortening time to market, reducing overall product development costs, and increasing innovation. Focused on creating a team that utilizes a set process to partner with leading manufacturers to successfully implement Additive Manufacturing. Master Graphics is a reseller of HP Jet Fusion Printers, 3D Systems Printers, and Ultimaker 3D Printers. 
    Also we discuss how researchers from the Japanese Yamagata University have developed a fully-3D printed actuator that could form the basis of a jellyfish-like soft robot. Using a UV-based 3D printer, the team were able to cure a newly-synthesized Particle Double Network (P-DN) hydrogel, into a mechanism that contracts in a similar way to the muscles of a moon jellyfish. Building on their novel device, the scientists now intend to create an entire aquatic robot, with potential marine wildlife monitoring applications.
    The benefits of developing soft robots that are capable of mimicking the behaviors of their organic counterparts,

    DMG Mori Additive Technology, Nils Niemeyer, Bi-Metal Printing, and Mars Landing

    DMG Mori Additive Technology, Nils Niemeyer, Bi-Metal Printing, and Mars Landing

    Welcome to 3d from nothing powered by Metalmite. The show where you learn all about 3d printing and additive technology. I'm your host, Tom Gendich. Today we have Nils Niemeyer, Manager of Sales and Service for the DMG Mori Additive team:
    Nils said “With hybrid machines, you have a big advantage,” said Nils Niemeyer, product manager for additive at DMG Mori USA. “You can build larger-volume parts very rapidly and finish-machine the parts on the same machine. There is less handling of the parts, smaller buffers. You get a finish-built product out of one setup. You integrate your supply chain completely into one machine.”
    Using the same machine for additive and subtractive also means operators can mill the inside of the part, which isn’t possible on a separate finishing machine that can finish mill only the part exterior, Norfolk said.
    “When you 3D print a part, you can always go back and mill the outside of the part on another machine but you can not mill the internal features,” he said. “Hybrid manufacturing on one machine allows you to clean up the internal features as you go.”
    Open discussion with Nils and Tom about the full offering that DMG Mori has. The advantages of additive and subtractive in the same machine. ETC…..

k gen ,

very informative!

love this podcast

etcyouth ,

Who knew?!?

This podcast was very informative. As a listener, it checked so many boxes for me. First, I was able to learn about a topic I had no knowledge of - nor did I think I wanted knowledge of. Second, I love that this is highlighting the local businesses. Podcasts like this show us the global reach of a local business. Third, as a son - the thought of carrying on the legacy of a father tugs at my heart strings. There is a beautiful picture that is painted as the undercurrent to this thriving business, and hearing glimpses of that story scratches me where I emotionally itch. Lastly, the voice on this podcast is like liquid gold pouring through my speakers. I could listen to the host read a phone book. Many acronyms are shared in this podcast, but it leaves me looking forward to M.O.R.E. podcasts.
