The biggest show in 3D printing is underway right now.
As always, the beat of RAPID + TCT 2019 is “what’s new in 3D printing?” As highlighted in show advisor Todd Grimm’s presentation on Monday, there is plenty to see in hardware, software, materials, applications and 3D scanning. Markforged’s Blacksmith AI technology has made its debut at the show. Titan Robotics is showing its ATLAS-H large scale dual extrusion system. There’s the BigRep Studio G2, Origin ONE, and the 3D Systems Modular Figure 4.

The plan with these helmets is, as discussed by Riddell R&D Manager Vittorio Bologna, to be able to custom-make interior padding for all players, from the NFL down to juniors.
On Tuesday, the end consumer theme (though not in a keynote) was continued by HP, revealing in a special presentation its partnership with Smile Direct Club, a mailout custom aligner company. Speaking in relation to the announcement Christoph Schell, successor to former HP President of 3D Printing Stephen Nigro, and the appointed President of 3D Printing and Digital Manufacturing, explained, “Smile Direct Club has taken the opportunity of 3D printing to do an internet digital process, and basically disrupt...
