The GE9X, the largest jet engine in the world developed for Boeing’s next-generation 777X jets, took its maiden flight on the GE flying testbed in March 2018. Discover how its crucial 3D-printed turbine parts were created using Materialise software solutions, and how these same solutions can power certified series manufacturing in Industry 4.0.
Quality is the buzzword of the moment in additive manufacturing and companies are investing heavily in digital solutions to improve it. Tom Craeghs, Research Project Manager at Materialise, explains how Materialise and Volume Graphics are working together to ensure quality production of 3D-printed metal parts by applying computed tomography to additive manufacturing.
Stefaan Motte, Vice President and General Manager of the software department at Materialise, looks back at the history of 3D Printing and highlights the three stages that this emerging technology has seen and how Materialise has been in the driver’s seat.
Not everything at Materialise Software is about writing code. A large part of the Software department is devoted to shaping the product and determining which features should be included, based on the feedback from the customers and the market. In this way, our software can keep making the lives of our customers easier, more cost-effective and more efficient. We interviewed two software application engineers to get an in-depth look at what the job is really like. Meet Olga Iatsenko, product application engineer for Materialise 3-matic, and Maarten Brocatus, product application engineer for Materialise e-Stage.
In cases where support structures have to be removed manually, easy support removal and smart support placement technology can significantly reduce finishing time. In this metal blog post, we explain three strategies for easy removal of metal support.
It’s time for AMUG – the 3D printing event that has been around since the early days of the technology. It unites people from the industry both new and veterans and is a great way to discover new innovations, network, and learn about the exciting projects. This year Materialise will once again be attending AMUG in St. Louis, Missouri, from April 8-12. At the event, see our latest innovations, get a demo of our 3D printing software suite, including Magics, and hear from our team of experts who will be giving presentations.
Materialise interviews Dr. Adrian Keppler, the CEO of EOS, about what is necessary to make 3D Printing more successful in the future. It’s all about creating an additive mindset. Watch the leadership talk interview.
Dr. Hendrik Schafstall explains what value simulation can bring in Metal 3D Printing, what it means to have simulation integrated within Materialise Magics and what the future of simulation looks like.
Last week, it was time for the third edition of Materialise China’s Focus Day! This year’s edition was called “Dream Big in 3Dimensions”; a two-day event uniting high-end speakers from different industries, and over 200 visitors who ranged from customers and partners to industrial players interested in the possibilities of Additive Manufacturing. Read on to get a taste of how the event went.
