German manufacturing and electronics company Siemens has engine tested its new 3D printed gas turbine blades. The 3D printed components were tested at 13,000 revolutions per minute and temperatures beyond 1,250 degrees Celsius.
Polish 3D printer and software company Verashape has announced it has licensed Siemens’ Parasolid Communicator, part of the company’s product lifecycle management (PLM) Software. The licensing agreement will help Verashape’s R&D department to further its support and development of Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) 3D printing technology through a new software program. More specifically, Siemens’ Parasolid Communicator software will help Verashape users to import and prepare 3D models for printing.
