0:10 - Bluesint: Materialise Now Able to Recycle 100% of Sintering Powder for SLS 3D Printing 

3D Printing is often better and more economical, even more "green" than traditional methods, but it does produce waste. In the case of powder bed fusion (PBF) or SLS, there's actually a lot of it. With the Bluesint process, they tweaked a dual laser powder bed fusion system to heat recycled powder before building it into new parts. The company claims that, with this process, they can achieve a 100% recycling rate.

2:50 - This new golf putter is anything but sub-par: Cobra Uses HP Metal Jet to 3D Print Next Gen Putter

A first-of-its-kind 3D printed golf putter, the KING Supersport-35 3DP, has just been commercially launched by Cobra Golf, a leading golf equipment manufacturer, which developed this latest innovation in golf equipment in partnership with HP and Parmatech. In addition, the design also features a high-performance aluminum face insert that uses patented Descending Loft Technology from SIK Golf, a putting manufacturer, to create “more consistent launch conditions on strikes across the face,” as per Cobra.

4:39 - The $9.5 Billion Columbia Submarine Contract And 3D Printing

In early November 2020, the U.S. Navy awarded the General Dynamics Electric Boat division a $9.5 billion contract to build two first-in-class Columbia class submarines. Working closely with the Navy at the end of the 2019 business year, Electric Boat has disclosed the ongoing 3D printing accomplishments including the first six 3D printed components. One of the six components that are being 3D printed is the instrumentation bracket. At first, the AM team proposed non-critical parts for approval. With the success of these prototypes, the AM team has been designing components that could never be manufactured or machined traditionally at a fraction of the time and cost.

6:41 - Senvol’s Machine Learning Software being Applied by the US Army Research Lab For 3D Printing Missile Parts 

The US Army Research Laboratory (ARL) has awarded a contract to Senvol that will see its Machine Learning (ML) software used to help design and qualify 3D printed missile parts. According to Annie Wang, President of Senvol, deploying the firm’s ML technology will enable the Army to reduce part lead times and costs, while increasing soldier survivability. The project’s eventual goal is to fabricate a missile part and compare its performance during testing to the simulations provided by Senvol’s ML software.

8:28 - Relativity Space Raises A Half Billion Dollars! 

Californian 3D printed rocket manufacturer Relativity Space is in the process of raising $500 million in Series D funding. The investment will reportedly be led by new contributors Tiger Global and Fidelity, and supported by long standing investors Social Capital, Playground Global, Y Combinator, Bond Capital and Tribe Capital. Following the funding round, which will take Relativity’s total cash raised to $685 million, the company’s value is expected to rise to $2.3 billion.

10:35 - New Lamborghini Huracán STO Features 3D Printed Aerodynamics Key 

In the new Lamborghini Huracán STO, 3D printing innovation focuses on a 3D printed key. The Huracán STO achieves the highest level of downforce in its class with the best aero balance for a rear-wheel drive car, with delivery of a superior aerodynamic load a key factor in its enhanced cornering performance. Overall airflow efficiency is improved by 37% and a significant downforce increase of 53% is reached over the Huracán Performante.
