    3D Systems has announced a new partnership with Huntington Ingalls Industries’ Newport News Shipbuilding—the shipbuilder’s division responsible for designing, building and refuelling the U.S. Navy aircraft carriers as well as one of its two submarine suppliers. Through the alliance, the companies say they will work together to qualify metal additive manufacturing technologies for nuclear-powered naval warships. The collaboration marks a…

  • The Office of Naval Research, through its Quality Metal Additive Manufacturing (Quality MADE) program, has awarded Concurrent Technologies Corporation (CTC) a $2.6 million two-year contract to supply technology solutions that will ensure the manufacturability of quality metallic parts from additive manufacturing (AM) machines. This could move the U.S. Navy closer to being able to build parts for critical Naval applications, further…

  • The Shot 2018 show is ongoing in Las Vegas. While several media fire up the debate on the right to own firearms, loudly making headlines, a much quieter segment of gun manufacturing is also making a lot of noise: 3D printed silencers (or suppressors). According to a reportage appeared on The Firearm Blog (TFB), as many as three companies presented 3D printed…

  • There are an estimated 100 million unexploded landmines in the ground today. Clearing these explosive remnant of war is a costly and risky business. Reports suggest that every 20 minutes someone is injured or killed by such a device. Extensive Mine Risk Education (MRE) programs exist, run by major NGO’s such as the UN and the Halo Trust. These programs…

  • bump fire stock

    Before the horrific Las Vegas shooting, I suspect most people had never heard of a bump stock or bump fire stock, which can replace the standard stock that comes with semi-automatic assault weapons. They are made so that there is a gap between the stock and the body of the weapon. When the weapon is fired, the operator holds the trigger finger in…

  • The recent ORNL 3D printed submarine showed that large scale composite 3D printing is ready to be implemented in the production of marine and submarine vehicles. The Royal Navy has started to look even further by unveiling a series of futuristic submarine concepts which mimic real marine life forms and radically change the way underwater warfare could look in 50…

  • The Construction Engineering Research Laboratory in Champaign, Illinois, has successfully three-dimensionally printed a 512 square-foot concrete structure. The structure, called a barracks hut or B-Hut, was printed as a result of a three year Army Program called ACES, “Automated Construction of Expeditionary Structures.” It uses an additive manufacturing process to “print” semi-permanent structures in a theater of operation. The ability…

  • People are worried about the possibility of using 3D printers to make unregistered guns or – if you are North Korea – to make nuclear weapons. However 3D printing is just a manufacturing technology and while it could be used to make weapons it is certainly not the best one.  That’s why Cody Wilson, the biggest promoter of using 3D…
