In November, Jacky’s Business Solutions’ also joined its 3D vendors, Stratasys, BigRep, MakerBot, Artec at Formnext in Frankfurt. Formnext is the leading exhibition and conference dedicated to additive manufacturing and all of its upstream and downstream processes.
At this year’s event, Artec relaunched its Leo scanner. Artec’s Leo is the first 3D scanner to offer onboard automatic processing, It provides the most intuitive workflow, making 3D scanning as easy as taking a video. As you scan your object, the user can see the 3D replica being built in real time on Leo’s touch panel screen. Rotate the 3D model, check if you have captured all areas, and fill in any parts you may have missed.
During the event, Jacky’s vendor BigRep unveiled an entirely 3D printed autonomous electric podcar, known as LOCI. A design prototype, LOCI is intended to showcase the application of large-format additive manufacturing in designing and creating functional end-use transportation. The 3D printed vehicle also premiered its “BigRep Part DNA” technology, which embeds NFC chips into the 3D printed parts.
LOCI formed the centerpiece of the company’s exhibition at Formnext, presenting a wide range of 3D printing applications, featuring collaborations with Bosch Rexroth, Airbus, and Dassault Systèmes. The company is also presenting four new materials for large-format 3D printing: PLX, PET-CF, PA6/66, and BVOH.
