The paper \"Trivariate Spline Representations for Computer Aided Design and Additive Manufacturing\" by Tor Dokken, Vibeke Skytt and Oliver Barrowclough (all from SINTEF) discusses the mathematical approach behind the geometric representations used in CAxMan to support analysis based design.

A new industrial 3D-printing extruder for polymers prints large parts with high resolutions at high rates - three orders of magnitude - with a turntable that automatically alternates among multiple redesigned nozzles of various diameters. http://www.asme.org/engineering-topics/articles/manufacturing-design/new-3d-printer-extruder-takes-manufacturing-next
At that meeting the Computer Aided Engineering Implementers Forum (CAE-IF) successfully completed its benchmark of ISO 10303-209 (STEP AP 209) Finite Element Method (FEM) input data. This means that the testing and results from CAxMan’s analysis for Additive Manufacturing are being successfully embedded in international standards. These enable engineering collaboration and this supports advanced and flexible design and manufacturing in line with initiatives such as Industry 4.0.

The first NUGEAR parts of the CAxMan project were 3D printed in MS1 Maraging steel and are now ready for testing! Additive Manufacturing allowed a 25% manufacturing time reduction compared to standard machining, says Stefano Ellero.
One of CAxMan\'s goals is to be able to control the results of the printed parts as well as the finished part. A dedicated interface with metrology has been implemented in CAD to transfer not only the shapes but also all the dimensional constraints with their tolerances, allowing the analysis of the results also in CAD.
Video presentation Dr. Georg Muntingh gave on the CAxMan project at Manufuture conference in October 2017 in Tallinn
The CAxMan team has been visiting Novatra today to see how the results and findings of the project are applied in real life. Tomorow we will define the plan for the upcoming year of the project. Stay tuned! New and exciting things are coming up for CAxMan and Additive Manufacturing.
Fraunhofer IGD\'s paper „Implicit Mesh Generation using Volumetric Subdivision”, which was presented at the “Workshop on Virtual Reality Interaction and Physical Simulation (VRIPHYS 2017) in Lyon has been invited for a publication in the journal Computers & Graphics.
Fraunhofer IGD\'s paper „ Implicit Mesh Generation using Volumetric Subdivision”, which was presented at the “Workshop on Virtual Reality Interaction and Physical Simulation (VRIPHYS 2017) in Lyon has been invited for a publication in the journal Computers & Graphics. The publication originated from work conducted in CAxMan generating internal structures for 3D-printed objects.
A model-based service engineering and intellectual property management approach developed within H2020-FoF project CAxMAn to support its Business Modelling and Innovation Management process is rewarded by Society for Serviceology from Japan in ICServ 2017 Conference with Best Paper Award.
CAxMan partner Jotne was awarded the ICONIC SME CERTIFICATE at the Innovation session on Smart Manufacturing in Amsterdam, presented at the Digital Innovation Forum 2017.
The CAxMan project will hold a Pre-Workshop before the World Manufacturing Forum in Barcelona this May. Registration is now open. Register NOW!
The CAxMan projet partners have meet this days in Barcelona to discuss face to face the way forward for the project.
Lockheed Martin awarded Jotne a three-year program to develop its existing software system known as Open Simulation Data Management (Open SimDM) platform to include new capabilities in test data management and other application areas.
The CaxMan partners meet for the first time face-to-face after the launch of the project at the beginng of this month.
