Sinterit Unveils Compact SLS 3D Printer Lisa X
The Polish company Sinterit has announced a new 3D printer based on selective laser powder sintering (SLS) technology. The Lisa X system features increased usable volume and ten times the performance of the previous Lisa Pro.
The new additive system is designed primarily for 3D printing with polyamide-12 powder with a vertical construction speed of up to 14 mm/h. It will take about 30 hours to process the whole build volume of 130 x 170 x 330 mm.
“Our third generation compact SLS 3D printer is made to speed up your innovation. We are still focused on delivering a whole SLS 3D printing solution, to make additive manufacturing useful and meaningful. With Lisa X this experience will be even better – faster prints and a bigger print volume answers the most common demands of the market,” commented Maxime Polesello, CEO of Sinterit.

Case Studies: Flashforge Guider IIs in Automotive Industry
Established in 1953 and certified by Bosch Car Service twenty years later, German auto repair company Ludwig Degeling KFZ-Elektrodienst is currently engaged in supporting vehicles for urgent medical services, the police, local airports, fire companies, and other emergency institutions. Aside from that, the company provides professional customization of cars.
Two years ago, Ludwig Degeling faced the problem of weak capacity coupled with strong demand — it was decided to employ additive manufacturing technologies and obtain a 3D printer that should solve the issue. So, they chose the Flashforge Guider 2s to help the company improve the production.
Read on to learn about the experience of Ludwig Degeling KFZ-Elektrodienst in using the device.

UNIZ Announces the SLASH 2 PLUS 3D printer
UNIZ is a Chinese 3D printer manufacturer, headquartered in San Diego, known for resin 3D printers. It announced its new device, the SLASH 2 PLUS. It’s a larger version of the UNIZ SLASH 2, a very successful device.
The new machine mainly targets dental applications, although it’s not limited to it. Larger build volume, impressive speed (up to 250 mm per hours, which is quite fast for resin 3D printers) and an 8.9-inch 4K LCD with a proprietary light engine are the most important specs of the device.

To help with the shortage of protective equipment, 3D printer users started to produce such objects with their devices. Read on to learn how people fight the pandemic using Flashforge products.
The Third Season of National Technology Olympiad Junior Has Ended
258 school students from the 5th to 7th grade were the winners of the third season of the National Technology Olympiad Junior. The exercises required theoretical knowledge of school subjects, as well as practical skills: understanding the basics of algorithms and programming, 3D modeling and printing, working with sensors and robotic components, data collection and analyzing.
QIDI Tech X-CF Pro: Industrial-Grade 3D Printer for Carbon Fiber and Nylon
The Zhejiang-based company QIDI has launched a brand new industrial-grade FFF machine designed for printing nylon and carbon fiber-reinforced filaments.
High Performance and Low Production Cost: The BOX Large-Format 3D Printer
The Swedish company BLB Industries developed one of the largest and most productive 3D printers in the world — The BOX additive machine. The device operates on the widely used technology of fused deposition modeling of polymer materials (FFF/FDM), but it sports an important advantage: 3D printing is performed not with filaments but granules, which results in a low cost of products.
Tomsk-based Russian Startup Received Nearly 40,000 Dollars for the development of a new large-format FDM 3D Printer
The DIVA startup received a 3 million Russian rubles (almost $40,000) grant as a part of the “Start” program by the Foundation for Assistance to Small Innovative Enterprises (FASIE). It seems that this is going to be a competitor to the well-known Modix-120X 3D printer.
Turning Nature into Jewelry with the Help of 3D Scanning
Many people think that 3D scanning is mainly used in industrial settings: for metrological and reverse-engineering purposes.
And just a few years ago, these two fields were the only ones where 3D scanning was used. But times changed, and scanners started being utilized in other sectors. Modern devices, such as the EinScan Pro 2X 2020 by Shining 3D, have proved that 3D digitizing can be implemented for many different things, ranging from small pet projects to professional reverse-engineering. The EinScan Pro 2X 3D scanners helped new users integrate 3D scanning and 3D design solutions into manufacturing for a lower price tag. This is why we can now see even more creative use cases for the technology.
Now that the modern 3D scanners are more accessible and easier to use and maintain, some business segments started to integrate 3D scanning solutions into their production cycle (they could not before due to higher entry prices).
Schnider & Hammer AG use 3D scanning actively and in this article we will cover one unusual project that was brought to life with the help of the EinScan Pro 2X 3D scanner.
A Versatile 3D Solution for the Medical Field
Manchester General Hospital recently conducted an experiment that involved usage of the ScanTech iReal 3D scanner for facial repair and reshaping.
The iReal 3D scanner was also previously used for spine correction and implant preparation.
The body scan results demonstrated a great potential use for healthcare, since the information about a patient's physical parameters is always in demand in the medical field. Such data is very important for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. X-ray imaging, CT, MRI – all of these methods are used for making 3D images of a patient’s internal organs.
3D body scans are used for getting data regarding outer surfaces of a human body. The data can be used for customizing the solutions such as prosthetic arms, implants, rehabilitation body protectors and orthopedic supports.
The main questions regarding acquiring 3D data of a human body are how safe, comfortable, non-contact, accurate and efficient the scanning process is. Safety and comfortableness are two reasons to use 3D scanning for a human body, since no one will use harmful technologies.
