Canadian 3D Printed Electronics

Printed electronics is an emerging market worth tens of billions worldwide. This rapidly growing global industry is expected to be worth US$70 billion by 2024 (IDTechEx).  Governments such as Europe, and the U.S. have been investing heavily in this market given its enormous potential. Canada is trying to do its part too with the emergence of the The Canadian Printable Electronics Industry Association, an association created to assist the Canadian industry in achieving sustained growth and competitiveness in the global printed electronics market. Formi 3DP an active member in the CPEIA recently took part in CPES2017 a conference and trade...

Functional 3D printing of Magnetic Objects for Remote Applications

3d printing Formi i3DP resin

Functional 3D printing of Magnetic Objects for Remote Applications

Magnetically driven micromachines play an essential role in a number of biomedical and other remote control applications. In this study, a magnetically driven robot was fabricated through Formi's i3DP resin system. The magnetic robot was successfully actuated under the rotating magnetic field produced from a permanent magnet. The remote control experiments demonstrate that this initiator-integrated 3D printing (i3DP) is an effective technique for making magnetically driven objects. Read the complete study here: http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/document/7849157/ Learn more about how our i3DP resin system can help with your functional 3D printing applications by contacting us on our service page.

Formi 3DP standard resin featured on Adafruit 3D Hangouts with Pedro & Noe Ruiz

Every Tuesday Noe and Pedro Ruiz from Adafruit Industries 3D Hangouts work hard to bring you 3D print designs from the community and showcase 3D printing  cases, tips, settings and of course - time-lapse videos! Working with the Ruiz brothers on this project was great and we are thrilled that our Standard 3D printing resin was showcased in this weeks feature time lapse video.  This 3D printed incense pagoda was completed on an Ember 3D printer from Autodesk using Formi Standard Clear Resin. Watch the video for full setting details. We look forward to working with Pedro and Noe in...

The right material for the job

3D Printing functional material i3DP resin

The right material for the job

Adaptive material for increasing complex 3D printing 3D printing, or additive manufacturing, has come a long way from its humble beginnings of producing simple plastic parts. Today 3D printing is used to produce increasingly complex functional components, including mechanisms, and electronics. It is now evolving from a prototyping technology into a full production technique. As the demands on 3D printers become more complicated, it is important that 3D printing materials become more adaptive and functional. The challenge is to develop materials that can be the basis for printing many different types of complex products. Inspired by nature People have been...
