Hosted by Joris Peels (3DPrint.com, Executive Editor) and Maxwell Bogue (3Doodler, Co-Founder & Investor), 3DPOD brings 3D printing & additive manufacturing news and insight, with straight talk from two bona fide 3D printing pros.
Listen to two of the most brilliant and colorful minds in the industry as they discuss 3D printers, materials and corresponding 3D tech. 3D Pod offers a grasp on the world of 3D printing, replete with first hand experiences, technical know-how, industry histories and stories. Lots of stories.
Joris Peels is the Netherlands-based Editor in Chief of 3DPrint.com, the #1 source for 3D printing news and industry resources. Joris has more than a decade’s experience working for 3D printing companies including Shapeways, Materialise, Formlabs, Ultimaker, MakePrintable, Hewlett Packard. Joris lives, eats, sleeps and dreams 3D printing and tries to give a dose of realism and truth to the hype surrounding 3D printing.
Maxwell Bogue is Co-Founder and Inventor of the 3Doodler, the world's first 3D printing pen and one of the most successful Kickstarter projects of all-time. Once described by the Huffington Post as "the happiest man at CES" Maxwell has been invited to keynote and speak at events worldwide including LeWeb, Tech+ and CE Week, both on the 3D printing industry and getting companies off the ground.
3DPOD Episode 121: Inkjet 3D Printing High-Performance Materials with Quantica Co-Founder Ben Hartkopp
Quantica Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer Ben Hartkopp invented a method of inkjetting extremely viscous, high-performance materials. Moreover, the startup's print heads and materials can provide voxel-level control over a printed part's properties, potentially revolutionizing the dental, medical, printed electronics, bioprinting markets and more.
Quantica is producing its own inkjetting technology itself, which is a huge challenge. Not only will the company have to commercialize a novel piezoelectric process, but it has to do so with an overwhelming world of possibility. The opportunities for Quantica are enormous and we discuss with Ben which ones the firm is tackling first and how.
3DPOD Episode 120: Increasing the Adoption of 3D Printing with Kris Binon, General Director of Flam3D
Kris Binon is at the helm of Flam3D, an organization that began by connecting the Belgian region of Flanders via 3D printing. Later, Flam3D grew to represent research institutes and companies throughout Belgium and, now, the Netherlands. In this episode of the 3DPOD, we talk about how to educate people about 3D printing, as well as how to work with governments and other stakeholders to spread 3D printing around the world.
3DPOD Episode 119: HD SLS 3D Printing with Charles Bibas, Tecnica
Charles Bibas worked in the barcode industry for many years, until he discovered a method that could revolutionize 3D printing. With a small team, he created a better optics package for 3D printing. Rather than going for a salvo, Charles's company Tecnica uses a Lens Free Optical Scanner (LFOS or Ogon) to obtain better results for selective laser sintering (SLS). A labor of love for Charles, Tecnica still had a go-to-market strategy. We talk to him about his plans to take this product to market.
3DPOD Episode 118: Intelligent Large Format 3D Printing with Daghan Cam, Ai Build Founder and CEO
When Daghan Cam founded AI Build, the firm's technology was a made up of a single 3D printer attached to a robotic arm for large scale polymer parts. The team did an about face and now focuses on developing the software that controls robotic arm 3D printers, including polymer, composites, concrete and metal. Makers of wire arc additive manufacturing, extrusion, and construction systems are all talking to AI Build now to create their software. With a recent injection of $3.2 million in funding, AI Build is a very exciting company and Daghan tells us its story so far.
3DPOD Episode 117: 3D Printing Software, DfAM, and More with Duann Scott, Bits to Atoms
Duann Scott is an industrial-designer-turned-business-development specialist who has worked for such illustrious firms as Shapeways, Autodesk, and nTopology. In our interview with him, he talks fluidly about his vision for the 3D printing software market and what is impeding additive manufacturing (AM) from moving forward. Duann is a firm believer in design for additive, working as an educator of these skills and assisting startups through his Bits to Atoms consultancy. Come hear what he has to say about software for a 3D printed world.
3DPOD Episode 116: Resin 3D Printing with polySpectra CEO Raymond Weitekamp
Raymond Weitekamp's research at the California Institute of Technology was the basis for a new way to 3D print resin. Now, Weitekamp's trying to commercialize the technology via a startup called polySpectra. Using existing vat polymerization machines, the company can release unique 3D printing materials with functional properties that can withstand real-world conditions.
Rather than sell a machine and resin together, or partner with a single vendor, polySpectra is trying to sell its materials to the emerging "open materials" space, in which customers can use machines with the materials of their choice. Raymond's path is one that will help others in producing more end-use parts with vat polymerization. Will this startup enable the creation of new disruptive parts that will shape the future of 3D printing?
