New Stratasys Smoothing Station arrives in Australia for ReadyPart Finish

RedEye Australasia is proud to announce the arrival of the new Stratasys Finishing Touch Smoothing Station for use on all ABS FDM parts.

Giving ABS parts a surface finish similar to injection-moulded parts, but at only a fraction of the cost, the ReadyPart surface finish makes FDM parts 15 times smoother, as well as watertight.

You can now opt for a ReadyPart finish in gloss or satin.

BENEFITS OF READYPART FINISH TO FDM CLIENTS

* The surface finish is ideal for painting and chroming.

* Smoothed parts work well as mold masters for silicone molding, sand casting, or
investment casting.

* Smoothed parts are watertight and can be employed for applications requiring moderate air or water pressure.

* Excellent representation of injection moulded parts for a fraction of the cost.




1. Before - no finishing 2. After - Satin Finish 3. After - Gloss Finish

Whether you're creating concept models, patterns or end use parts, now you can make them even smoother, with no delay in build time.

Suitable for all RedEye ABS thermoplastics including: ABS-P400, ABSi, ABSplus, ABS-M30 and ABS-M30i.

Call RedEye Australasia on 1300 559 454, visit the website or ask about our surface finishes on your next quote.


* Data derived from an independent study conducted by QC Inspection. Parts analyzed were produced with a Fortus 3D Production System using .010 inch slice thickness. On average, surface roughness decreased from Ra 600 to Ra 40 to 60 equating to a 10 to 15 times smoother part surface.

Delivering High Quantities of Prototypes Fast

Objective3D Direct Manufacturing produces parts using a range of additive and conventional manufacturing technologies. We offer tailored solutions for your project’s needs. If your project requires larger quantities of small parts – fast, Laser Sintering is the best technological solution for you. Per-part pricing is reduced as quantities increase, but there are more advantages to using Laser Sintering for small prototypes than price alone.

Laser Sintering (LS) provides strong, versatile and geometrically intricate components made from filled and un-filled nylon materials that are ideal for fit and form verification and functional testing. Prototypes made with LS are created quickly and offer robust solutions for your project.
FAST Delivery Laser Sintering can provide sturdy, functional prototypes as little as 24 hours. Multi-component designs can be incorporated into single structures, allowing engineers to produce complex features and geometries in one print, and eliminating the need…

Commodore Ute to US: 100,000 votes needed!

According to The Age Drive and an article by Barry Park, we are again set to export our Commodore Ute to the US.

The article is as follows:

US website rallies to GM's Twitter call of 'If you ask for an El Camino ute, we'll do it'.

An off-the-cuff quip from General Motors' newly appointed chief marketing officer could be just the thing to help Holden's cause to sell the Commodore ute in the US.

Joel Ewanick, who made the jump from Hyundai to the US car maker late last year, recently joined the social networking service Twitter. He soon started interacting with Chevrolet fans, with many of them asking for the car maker to re-introduce a vehicle based on a cross between a truck (ute) and a car.

In response to one passionate request for a new-age El Camino, Ewanick wrote: ''Well, we need you and 100,000 more of your best friends.''

Canberra para-athlete Scott Reardon wins gold with 3D Printed Spike Plates

Canberra para-athlete Scott Reardon has sprinted his way to gold at the IPC Athletics World Championships in Doha with victory in the T42 100m for leg amputees.

The fastest qualifier coming into the finals, Reardon, using a 3D Printed Spike Plate, got his nose in front to stop the clock in a time of 12.13 seconds - a mere one-hundredth of a second in front of Russia's Anton Prokhorov.
It was sweet revenge for Reardon, the 25-year-old having to share the gold medal two years ago at the world championships in Lyon in 2013 with Germany's Heinrich Popow​.
"You come to championships to win championships and that's the most important thing," Reardon said.
"I probably didn't get the time I wanted, but when people look back, how I got there won't matter. "It will just show me as world champion, and that's so exciting."
The result is the culmination of more than a decade of determination and training.

The Spike Plates which Reardon used in the …
