Post-processing of SLS nylon materials – Presented by Daphne Laméris, Shapeways

Post-processing of SLS nylon materials – Presented by Daphne Laméris, Shapeways, at the 3D Printing Materials Conference, on April 17, 2018, at Brightlands Chemelot Campus, Geleen, The Netherlands. Read the interview

Once a SLS printer is finished, the production is not. The post-processing of 3D printed models has some unique challenges. In this presentation those challenges as well as solutions applied by Shapeways will be discussed.

Finally people are realizing that 3D printing is more than just a machine – Daphne Laméris, Shapeways

Finally people are realizing that 3D printing is more than just a machine – Daphne Laméris, Shapeways

Daphne Laméris is Product Development Engineer at Shapeways. She will speak about Post-processing of SLS nylon materials during the 3D Printing Materials Conference, on April 17, 2018, at Brightlands Chemelot Campus, Geleen, The Netherlands. 

What drives you?

I got into 3D printing because having an idea in your head and the actual physical product in your hands only a few days or weeks later, is simply amazing. My goal is to make the realization of ideas easier and the product better.

What emerging technologies/trends do you see as having the greatest potential in the short and long run?

Materials available for 3D printing are getting more functional with better properties. This increases the possible applications for 3D printing in both consumer and industrial environments. The industry as a whole is also more maturing. Finally people are realizing that 3D printing is more than just a machine, but also involves pre- and -post-production as well as quality control.

Shapeways’ 3D printed dagger appears in Game of Thrones season six opener

When Ellaria Sand whipped a dagger out of her bracelet on Sunday’s Game of Thrones season 6 premiere, we gasped, but not for the same reason you did. For months now we’ve been keeping a secret: the designers from Game of Thrones partnered with Shapeways to create items for the show and this–this!–was the dagger we had 3D printed for them.

“Lowering the barrier: design & engineering for everyone” – Presented by Ruud van den Muijzenberg, Shapeways

3D designing currently still is a time consuming process which often requires complex and expensive software. We realized most people don’t have the knowledge of, or don’t have the access to these tools. How can you enable those consumers to make unique products that fit better in their lives than mass manufacturing can deliver?

Shapeways Introduces Porcelain to Marketplace

Late last year we launched a new pilot program and introduced our first ever material fully developed in-house, Porcelain. Since then we’ve been working closely with our community to perfect this new material, and today we’re excited to announce Porcelain is available to shoppers everywhere. From beautiful espresso cups to unique vases, anyone can now make and buy this incredible material. Continue reading “Shapeways Introduces Porcelain to Marketplace”
