Q5D’s technology is the fusion of two technologies: laser sintered printed, which makes it possible to print with copper or silver ink and then use a laser to cure and sinter the ink; and innovative 5-axis additive manufacturing which is able to accurately deposit inks or dielectrics.

This makes it possible to print conductive tracks on large curved surfaces or create complex structures with compact 3D circuitry for surface mounted components.

Here comes the “Uberisation Era” of Consumer Electronic Product Manufacturing – Interview with Senake Atureliya, speaker at the 3D Printing Electronics Conference 2018, exclusive for 3DPrinting Brazil, by Laura Loenert

Peer-to-peer marketplaces such as Airbnb and Uber have enabled people all over the world to unlock the value of their underused time and assets. In his talk at the 3D Printing Electronics Conference, which will take place in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, at the end of this month, Senake Atureliya — an innovator and entrepreneur which was nominated as a finalist in the British Inventors Awards 2016 by the Gadget Show team — will describe what he calls a “solution” that mix robotics, 3D printing technologies and a p2p development platform “to unlock the creative, productive and commercial value of the crowd by enabling the overnight small batch manufacture of products incorporating electronics, actuators and batteries“.

In the interview bellow, exclusive for 3DPrinting, Senake tells us why he believes that makers can now really change the world materizaling its ideas using electronics and additive manufacturing: Continue reading “Here comes the “Uberisation Era” of Consumer Electronic Product Manufacturing”

The first fully 3D printed LED’s really exist and they are out there!

3D printed LED'S

The first fully 3D printed LED’s do really exist and they are out there! Developing the capability to 3D print various materials could enable the free form generation of active electronics in unique functional, interwoven architectures. Achieving such a seamless integration of a diversity of materials with 3D printing is a significant challenge that requires overcoming discrepancies in material properties in addition to ensuring that all the materials are compatible with the process. 3D printing Quantum Dot LED’s: a myth or reality?
