“Redefine meat” company ready to feed with 3D-printed meat
Today, we'll talk not of classic FDM 3D-printers such as the Creatbot DX but about food 3D printing.
Israeli company Redefine Meat has launched five new "meat" products. No cow or lamb was harmed in the process, because all these steaks and sausages are 3D-printed using plant biomass.
Massivit 1500 Exploration 3D Printer: Highlights and Applications
The Israeli company Massivit offers a slightly less "massive" version of its flagship 3D printer that builds products from photopolymer gels. Although the specs of the machine are more modest, its print volume reaches two and a half cubic meters.
HARZ Labs Received Patent for Dental Resins
The Russian manufacturer of photopolymer 3D printing consumables HARZ Labs was granted a patent for “UV-curing dental material based on polymers".

The Israeli company Massivit 3D Printing Technologies offers a new large-format 3D printer called Massivit 1800 Pro. The high-performance Massivit additive machines are used in the production of promotional products, thermoforming molds, and prototyping.
Electric Motorcycle Made Using SLS 3D Printing
E-moto AGH, a team of students from the Polish Academy of Science and Technology, designed and built an electric off-road motorcycle. The students not only managed to prove the benefits of alternative energy sources, they also learned how to apply the latest solutions, such as the Sinterit Lisa Pro desktop SLS 3D printer. For the most part, the motorbike was created in the laboratory of the academy.
“We spend most of our time in the workshop,” says team leader David Senko. “Our project is the creation of electric motorcycles. Two bikes are now ready: with a capacity of eight and thirty kilowatts.”
The E-moto AGH team builds their bikes from scratch. Many parts are made by hand, for example, using vacuum forming or machining. The rest of the parts are 3D printed. Students use several printers, mostly of FDM type. But there was a special task for which the technology of selective laser sintering was employed.
“We needed to print a heatsink housing, and SLS is the best fit for this purpose, because prints are durable and some parameters are more predictable than FDM,” says Jakub Sobański. “It is also very important that we can use a wide range of powders.”
Sinterit Offers Lisa 2 SLS 3D Printer
The Polish company Sinterit, a manufacturer of priced-to-please 3D printers using selective laser powder sintering (SLS) technology offers the Lisa 2 3D printer with an increased build area and an expanded range of supported materials.
3D Printers Made 100,000 Nozzle Tips For General Electric Aircraft Engines
Additive manufacturing department of General Electric shipped the 100,000th 3D printed fuel nozzle tip for the LEAP family of turbofan engines that are used on Airbus and Boeing aircrafts. Inspection of these parts before and after use can be completed with the use of laser 3D scanning (see examples here).

Massivit Released Unusual Photopolymer Additive Casting System
The Israeli company Massivit launched a new Massivit 10000 photopolymer 3D printer using a combined 3D printing and injection molding technology.
3D Printed Bridge to Nowhere
Do you think the Creatbot F1000 has a large build volume? No wonder you think so. After all, it's been used to print entire car bodies. More on this here. But in this article we'll explore a project that allowed printing an entire bridge.
A bridge with a 20-meter (65 feet) long 3D printed section appeared in Chengdu, China. The section is printed with a polymer composite material. The practical purpose of the bridge is not clear: it doesn’t connect two shores, both ends are located on the same side.
Filamentive Released a Stronger PLA Filament
British company Filamentive added a proprietary PLA-filament to its portfolio. Its impact strength is 7.5 times higher than that of regular PLA (polylactide). It’s interesting that the company achieved this without the use of carbon fiber that is often added in order to improve the mechanical properties of Nylon. (Note: to print with CF-filled filaments one needs to install a hardened steel nozzle like the one here.)
