3D Printer can create injection molds using Digital ABS
The new triple-jetting Objet500 Connex2 Multi-material 3D Printer was introduced this week by Stratasys at IMTS 2014 in Chicago and is expected to set new standards for 3D printing price/performance and high throughput additive manufacturing.
For a unique perspective on this newest addition to the Objet500 Connex series, check out the video below.
One of the most important manufacturing applications being revolutionized with Objet Connex 3D Printing is injection molding. Leveraging PolyJet-based technology, the Objet500 Connex2 can produce injection molds for testing designs in their final materials before mass production and for manufacturing low volumes of end-use injection molded parts.  Compare this with the considerable time and expense of using CNC-tooled molds to test injection mold designs and you’ll understand why more and more manufacturers are integrating Stratasys 3D Printers for production tooling applications.
The perfect choice for both design and manufacturing applications, the Objet500 Connex2 comes equipped with a large build envelope and can produce parts from three diverse materials in a single production run. This allows users to create assemblies with components formed from three different materials, or it can produce components that contain both rigid and flexible materials.  The Objet500 Connex2 can also produce hundreds of composite Digital Materials with a wide range of material properties.

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 …
