3D Printing and Scanning SIG: Ulf Lindhe, netfabb - "Form & Function" (Biomimicry)
Where 3D Printing & Biomimicry Meet!
"Form & Function" by Ulf Lindhe from netfabb
“Form & Function” - Nature uses very few materials! How 3D Printing is a perfect technology for Biomimicry!
Some netfabb testimonials:
- "netfabb is a very significant development in software for design of parts for manufacturing using rapid prototyping technologies. The software frees the product development engineer from the limitations of complexity and file size in conventional CAD programs. We use the software for designing lightweight high performance ceramic structures with tailored macros and micro porosity." Andrew Jeffrey, Founder and President, Viridis Innovation LLC, Boston, MA
- "netfabb's Selective Space Structures (3S) has been incredibility useful to us. It is the only software we have found to date that is capable handling and producing large net structures required for the scale of components we produce for the aerospace industry."
- "We were please to find netfabb a reliable and powerful software capable of producing complex lattice structures with locally tailored geometry. In the design of customized Titanium Implants, such a capability proves to be very useful in enhancing bone response and controlling the mechanical behavior of the implants. The software has very intuitive commands that enhances the creative design of structures, minimizing time and memory usage, making the production of parts with very high complexity a breeze rather more than just a possibility." Gilbert Chahine, Research Assistant and PhD Candidate,Research Center for Advanced Manufacturing, Lyle School of Engineering, Southern Methodist University, Dallas, Texas, USA
