Accuracy in Additive Manufacturing (AM), from the CAD design to the printing process, is not always

Accuracy in Additive Manufacturing (AM), from the CAD design to the printing process, is not always easy to deliver. Companies are working hard at trying to ensure consistency and repeatability throughout the entire manufacturing process since today much more is required of AM systems who need to turn out functional goods that can meet traditional manufacturing standards while being cost-effective in order to be even more competitive. Some common 3D printing problems arise on the way to achieving the desired original design, so before a 3D printed metal part leaves the factory, it has probably undergone some kind of post-processing to smooth and perfect the surface. For example, if Direct Energy Deposition (DED) metal 3D printing was used, this typically produces near-net-shape parts that must be CNC machined, but other forms of AM also require some type of smoothing close to the end. And even when all that is done, the part might not fit or work as originally intended. In some cases, parts are predeformed in order to compensate for inaccuracies during the process. All this basically means that engineers and specialists will need to go back to review the CAD design and processes...

Roofing Guide: 26 Types of Tiles, Sheets and Membranes to Cover Architectural Projects

From ceramic tiles and metal sheets for roofs to wooden decks and floating cement tiles for roofing, roofing materials not only contribute to the drainage and protect the lower layers from solar radiation and wear, but also have an important aesthetic function. Currently, when choosing the roof covering, you can find a wide variety of materials and dimensions, each with specific characteristics, determined by the type of roofing, the location of the project, and its future maintenance. Available for different types of sloping roofs, they usually provide good drainage and rain resistance. Usually, they consist of a superposition of upper pieces, which collect and lead rainwater, and lower pieces, which cover the joints between the channels. Their production costs are relatively low and they are manufactured in different materials, which is why they are found regularly in most low-density residential housing. Although they usually require the incorporation of adequate thermal insulation, they have great benefits when it comes to resisting the weather. They usually have a high durability, and due to their size and weight, they can be handled and placed quickly and easily. They can ...

More information can be found in our Cookies and Privacy Policy.  World-first in grid-scale pumped heat energy storage places UK at forefront of energy storage R&D, team claims Pumped heat energy storage (PHES) shuffles heat between two tanks containing mineral gravel by means of a working gas, generally an inert gas such as argon. In storage mode, the argon is pressurised to around 12 bar, which heats it up to 500°C. The hot gas enters the top of one of the tanks (designated hot), and flows down slowly at about 3m/s, heating the particulate in the tank and itself cooling down. At the bottom of the tank, the gas is still at 12 bar but now at ambient temperature. At this point, it is expanded back to ambient pressure which cools it to -106°C. It then enters the second tank, cooling the particulate and itself warming up, exiting the tank at the top at ambient temperature and pressure. To recover energy, the process is reversed with ambient argon entering the cold tank, being cooled and becoming pressurised. It then enters the hot tank, where it ...

Volkswagen still has the temerity to sell a compact station wagon in an American market scarfing

Volkswagen still has the temerity to sell a compact station wagon in an American market scarfing up CUVs, and bless them for it. I should have been in the heart of the CUV market when looking for a new vehicle in 2010, but I ended up in a MkVI Jetta Sportwagen. It isn’t brown and it doesn’t burn diesel, but after four years and 51K miles of ownership I can understand some of the fervor of wagon fans here on TTAC. There is just something so fundamentally sound and good about the way this car drives, the way it goes down the road, and the surprising utility it offers. With the recent ascension of the Volkswagen Golf to the MQB platform and the 1.8TSI engine on North American shores, I thought it would be an appropriate time to share my longer-term ownership experience of the outgoing platform. The VW replaced a second-hand 1996 “champagne” beige Camry (how appropriate, for what better title could you give a 1996 Camry than the Champagne of Beiges?) which I had owned for 8 responsible years. Despite being the crème de la crème of 1990s sedans and exhibiting a build quality rarely seen in a Toyota showroom since, it was completely lifeless from behind the wheel and falling...

How to create your own tracks with the Beat Saber Level Editor

As far as VR rhythm games go, Beat Saber might just be everyone’s favorite, and it’s only just moved from its position as a PC Early Access title on Steam and Oculus to a full release. The combined effect of having original tunes pumping in your ears while you’re slicing timed blocks with lightsabers is truly a thrill, and now that an official Level Editor has been released, many people are headed back to see if they can line up their own favorite songs with the red and blue blocks. We jumped in to see what it’s all about, and have put together this guide to help you use the Beat Saber Level Editor. We’re still experimenting with the Beat Saber Level Editor and it will no doubt take quite some time to master it (if ever at all), but we can offer some insight into the 2D interface and what it takes to get your project off the ground. First you need to know how to access the Level Editor. Whether you purchased Beat Saber through the Oculus app or the Steam app, the Level Editor is accessed the same way. If you’re making your own project from scratch, the first thing you want to do is import a song into the Level Editor. While MP3 might be a comm...
