Jewelry is the industry which has adopted 3d printing on a very large scale. Most of the jewelry manufacturing units have 3d printers in house or are using 3d printing service bureaus for printing their models. This technology offers high productivity, better precision and details and ability to create intricate designs as compared to conventional handcrafting jewelry.
3D printers are used for making wax or resin patterns of jewelry which can be casted into gold, silver, brass, etc using lost wax casting method.
US-based Silicon Valley entrepreneur Gururaj “Desh” Deshpande is a known name in the business. Although he has a primarily expertise in IT and telecom sector, the Karnataka-born serial entrepreneur has went on to play the role of a mentor to several profit and non-profit ventures, and is also a philanthropist. And now, he as added another feather to his cap as Desh’s philanthropy arm, The Deshpande Foundation, has decided to launch India’s largest startup incubation centre yet at Hubballi (earlier Hubli) in Karnataka.
Spread over an area of 85,000 sq ft, the startup incubation centre will be built alongside the new campus of information technology giant Infosys and will be able to house 1,200 people at a time. Currently, the biggest incubator in India is Nasscom’s 40,000 sq ft warehouse in Bengaluru with a capacity of 100 startups and 500 people.
The Deshpande Foundation’s startup incubation centre will be built at a cost of Rs 30 crore, and is expected to be completed by September this year. Once completed, the centre will boost of a makers lab, a 3D printing lab, hardware labs and Internet of Things (IOT) lab. Continue reading

Total Automation, viz., automation of (i) process and (ii) process planning, is the first advantage of 3D Printing that helps in the launch of new products ahead of competition. Direct assemblies, non-linear ducts (in axis and cross-section), affordable customization and light objects (through topological optimization with/without lattice structures) are some of its unique geometric capabilities. Apart from a variety of monolithic polymers, metals and ceramics, AM can realize Functionally Gradient Matrix (FGM) in density and composition. These unique ‘geometric’ and ‘matrix’ capabilities make AM one of the most disruptive technologies of this era alongside CAD, 3D Scanning, Smart Phones and Internet of Things (IoT). 3D Printing with the appropriate combination of the allied technologies, referred as Rapid Manufacturing (RM), can produce anything that can be modeled in a computer.
Abu Dhabi: German conglomerate Siemens AG, Abu Dhabi-based Strata Manufacturing, and Abu Dhabi airline Etihad Airways announced they will work together to develop the first 3D-printed parts for aircraft interiors in the Middle East and North Africa.
A joint statement from the three companies on Monday said the partnership aims to leverage additive manufacturing, known as 3D printing, to help airlines improve their designs, and will include making complex parts on demand and manufacturing discontinued parts.
Under the partnership, a pilot project will develop 3D printing solutions for aircraft cabin interior products for Etihad.
Siemens will consult on the selection of materials, testing, and the preparation of processes. The design team of Etihad Airways Engineering will work to certify the parts, and Strata will manufacture the parts in its factory.
Stratasys will supply McLaren Racing with a suite of 3D printing and additive manufacturing solutions, as the Official Supplier of 3D Printing Solutions to the McLaren Honda Formula 1 team. Stratasys will work closely with the Formula 1 team as it ramps up its rapid manufacturing capacity at the McLaren Technology Centre in Woking, UK.
McLaren Racing will be receiving Stratasys’ latest FDM– and PolyJet-based 3D printing solutions and cutting-edge materials for visual and functional prototyping, production tooling including composite tooling, and customized production parts. This will enable accelerated delivery while increasing performance and productivity in McLaren’s design and manufacturing operations.
“The ability to rapidly model, build and evaluate new components is an invaluable asset for any fast-moving and dynamic racing organization. But our new partnership with Stratasys will not only increase our output in that area, but also allow us to dynamically explore and utilize the cutting edge of Stratasys’ new 3D printing innovations and solutions,” said Eric Boullier, racing director of McLaren Racing. “It has become clear that motorsport’s reliance on rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing, and the ability to radically cut time to market, is increasing, and we look to being well served by our new alliance with Stratasys.”
MakerBot today announced the resignation of CEO Jonathan Jaglom and the appointment of company president Nadav Goshen as his successor. Over the last two years, Jaglom and Goshen have worked closely together leading MakerBot’s reorganization and strategic shift. Jaglom will be returning to Israel to spend more time with his family.
“I joined MakerBot two years ago to lead the turnaround of the company and I’m proud of what we’ve been able to achieve in such a short time. We have defined a new strategic direction, completely revamped the company’s quality control processes, and successfully launched a new lineup of products,” said Jonathan Jaglom, CEO of MakerBot. “Having put the company on a new track and put in place a new organizational structure, I believe that now is the right time for me to step back and spend more time with my young family. Nadav Goshen has been crucial in defining MakerBot’s new direction and he is the ideal candidate to lead the company on its new path.”
