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…
Cnano is in collaboration with Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTH) and Professor Bikiaris for the systematic study of the surface pre-treatment of 3D-printed resin samples via scanning electron microscopy (SEM).
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…
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

After the metallization of an ABS sample, it is the turn of the electroless metallization of a 3D-printed object of complex geometry made from resin with the technique of stereolithography! Stay tuned, it has begun! Cnano3D #3DPlate #3Dprinting #Stereolithography #SLA #Resin #Electrolessplating #Palladiumfree #Chromiumfree
Our first, green, eco-friendly, metallized 3D-printed ABS sample is a fact! The deposition of metal on the plastic surface is achieved without the use of toxic materials such as chromic acid and palladium! Stay tuned, more to come!! #Cnano #Cnano3D #3DPlate #3Dprinting #Electrolessplating #Palladiumfree #Chromiumfree
An interview with the French-based company Elliptika which specializes in the design and development of RF and microwave products and solutions.

Today we are feeling creative! We just installed our new Flashforge Creator 3 printer from ANIMA and we are ready for a whole new experience!! The dual independent extruders, operating at high speeds, and the extended range of compatible materials give us endless possibilities! Our final target is to provide customized 3Dprinted objects with an excellent metal finishing. Stay tuned, more are coming!! #Cnano#Cnano3D#3dprinting#engineering#additivemanufacturing#filament#technology
