3D Demonstrators Build Bigger, Lighter Parts for Automotive and Aerospace
Stratasys has recently unveiled two new pieces of additive manufacturing technology: the Infinite-Build 3D Demonstrator and the Robotic Composite 3D Demonstrator. The Infinite-Build 3D Demonstrator is designed to address the demands of aerospace, automotive, and other industries for large, lightweight thermoplastic parts with repeatable mechanical properties. The Robotic Composite 3D Demonstrator uses a unique 8-axis motion system that enables precise, directional material placement for strength while also reducing the need for speed-hindering support strategies. This changes how future lightweight parts will be built, and provides a glimpse into how this technology could be used to accelerate the production of parts made from a wide variety of materials.
