The spectre of free 3D models

The spectre of free 3D models

There has been an increasing trend towards hobbyists buying designs to 3D print on their own 3D printers at home, rather than do the difficult design work themselves. Brands are now trying to sell 3D designs rather than physical products. But the internet is full of free designs, and customers can't always tell the real things from the fakes. This has important implications for consumer safety, but also for the livelihoods of freelance designers. IDTechEx invited Martynas Klimas of CG Trader to explain the problems and implications.

Latest trends in the conductive inks business

Latest trends in the conductive inks business

IDTechEx Research analysis showed that the conductive ink business was on the cusp of rapid and comprehensive change. Changing business dynamics has forced many suppliers to change strategy, focusing on many emerging and nascent applications in the hope that some will grow in the future to compensate for the commoditization and/or decline in core markets. In this article, we bring you an update on some of the latest trends and developments.

Will PTFE be the next 3D printable material?

The range of available materials is one of the key hurdles to adoption for industrial 3D printing. 3D printing is being rapidly adopted by product manufacturers all around the world, but it still can't compete with many other manufacturing techniques with respect to material diversity.
