SWISSto12 and Elbit Systems to cooperate on the development and production of advanced antennas

Elbit Systems, a $4.7 billion company, and SWISSto12, a leading provider of 3D printed products for radio frequency (RF) applications in the aerospace and defense industries, announced a long-term cooperation agreement. The long-term agreement calls for the development and production of 3D-printed RF antennas and subsystems for Elbit Systems’ Naval EW programs in several countries. The successful industrialization of SWISSto12’s unique 3D printing technology for serial production in the aerospace and defense industries assures high-performance Read more…

How Volkswagen Used 3D Printing and Electroplating to Create Metal Hubcaps

Volkswagen’s “Type 20” concept vehicle is a modern reimagining of a classic VW microbus from 1962, and a showpiece for the automaker’s next-generation technologies. VW’s designers worked with Autodesk to create several generatively-designed structural components, including a set of highly expressive cast-aluminum wheels. Those wheels needed hubcaps that drew on VW’s iconic styling while still fitting properly among the organic forms of the spokes. The solution: print the hubcaps on a Formlabs desktop SLA 3D Read more…

Cnano collaborates with Costas Gaïtis

We are excited and honored to announce a research collaboration with the internationally renowned visual artist Costas Gaïtis.The target of the collaboration is that 3D-printed resin creations and sculptures with complex geometries, crafted by Costas Gaïtis, will be firstly metallized and then electroplated using eco-friendly processes.Plating on plastics just got aesthetically upgraded! Stay tuned! In the following website you may see some of the creations of Costas Gaïtis. https://gaitiscostas.wixsite.com/mysite
