Aerospace and 3D Printing with ULTEM

November 28, 2017

The aerospace industry is fast moving. Once one challenge gets solved, the market has already changed and moved onto a new trend. This means expensive and time-consuming tooling and production aren't an efficient option. To remain competitive, the aerospace industry leans on additive manufacturing, especially 3D printing with ULTEM materials. Find out why in this blog.

How 3D Printing is Transforming the Aerospace Industry

November 7, 2017

Since the Wright brothers first launched their wood and canvas glider in the early 1900s, technology has improved dramatically, making international travel and space exploration a reality. Additive manufacturing, better known as 3D printing, is playing a major role in this revolution by reducing weight, strengthening materials and streamlining design in the aerospace industry.

Drone Wars Week 1: And They're Off! Part 1

June 27, 2016

The TriMech Drone Wars are in full swing. Our four teams have been keeping us up-to-date on their latest activities and strategies as they build their drones. We'll be updating you twice a week with blogs that take an in-depth look at each team's approach during every phase of this competition and follow up with the outcomes of their modification, any challenges they may have encountered, and what modifications are in the pipeline for the next phase.

If you missed our kick-off blog, you can find it here. As a recap, each team was provided an off-the-shelf drone that they will modify using 3D printed parts at a max of $250. They will pit the drones against each other in a speed race, a precision flight, and a payload test.

Let the TriMech Drone Wars Begin!

May 27, 2016

The use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or drones was once limited to the defense industry. Today, drones are sailing everywhere! Anyone in the commercial or private sectors can pick up an off-the-shelf drone or manufacture one with readily available resources.  

With this in mind, we've decided to pit our application engineers and technical teams against each other in the first ever TriMech Drone Wars. Let the games begin!
