Stratasys helps with Space Station's Mobile Freezers

Published 06/01/2015

ULTEM 9085 is most known for being a high temperature and chemical resistant material but did you know that it can also be used for under freezing conditions? Stratasys had the recent opportunity to assist with engineers and scientist at The University of Alabama Birmingham Center for Biophysical Sciences and Engineering. They were in the works of developing freezer units capable of reaching temperatures as low as -160°C. Their most recent project, The Polar Unit, is one of their first designs incorporating 3D printed components. By using this technology, it helped save significant interior space of the freezer!

The Makerbot Question: Who should or shouldn’t use it?

Published 05/18/2015

As a 3D printer reseller, as well as prototyping service, R&D Technologies interacts with people from all kinds of business: from inventors to doctors, from engineering students to Presidents of large corporations, everyone may have a need for 3D printing, but to different extents. Here is a brief background on Makerbot: in 2013, Stratasys purchased Makerbot Corporation. I actually started working with R&D Technologies at the same time of the acquisition. Makerbots run from $1,300-$6,000. As a Stratasys reseller and service bureau, Makerbot sent our company the Makerbot Replicator 2 for our engineers to play with. It has been both a fun and functional tool for us. I have a 3D printed horse (my favorite animal) on my desk. We have Makerbot-printed Christmas ornaments on the building’s Christmas tree. One of my coworkers printed a fixture for his car mirror that saved him from needing to purchase an entire new mirror assembly.
