[Image credit: Fortify]   [caption id="attachment_10066" align="alignright" width="232"] Joshua Martin, Fortify CEO[/caption] Fortify is a Boston-based startup that has developed a new approach to composite 3D printing. This approach combines magnet alignment of composites with Digital Light Processing (DLP) technology, enabling users to produce high-quality composite parts that would be otherwise impossible to manufacture.   The technology, called Fluxprint™, powers Fortify’s Digital Composite Manufacturing (DCM) platform. The platform is firstly aimed at enabling companies to produce durable tools like injection moulds and end-use production parts.    In today’s interview, we’re joined by Fortify’s CEO, Dr. Joshua Martin ...

Today on the blog, we sit down with Dr Billy Wu of Imperial College to discuss 3D printing’s applications in research and education, how Imperial’s students are turning their 3D printed prototypes into business opportunities, and his team’s revolutionary new metal printing method.   Was there a specific moment where you decided 3D printing was something you wanted to pursue? I’m a lecturer at the Dyson School of Design Engineering here at Imperial. I’ve actually been here for 12 years, since my undergrad. I’m in design engineering now, but I started out in ...

One of the most intriguing developments in additive manufacturing in recent years has been in the pharmaceuticals sector: the use of 3D printers to generate medication in tablet form. We were honoured to sit down with one of the pioneers of this technology, Dr Alvaro Goyanes, to discuss its inception, the progress it has made, and what we should expect from his ongoing research at FabRx in the years to come.     How did you originally become interested in 3D printing? 3D printing is now widely used to create many different types ...
