ESA - In the Spotlight - Impressão 3D sem limite de comprimento - Apresentada no workshop de manufatura avançada da <a href="https://www.esa.int" target="_blank">Agência Espacial Europeia</a> (ESA), esta barra em polímero de alto desempenho, com 1.5 m de comprimento, é muito maior do que a impressora 3D onde foi produzida.  </br>

A impressora é capaz de imprimir peças de dimensões ilimitadas numa direção. Trata-se de uma versão de demonstração terrestre da tecnologia de impressão 3D, destinada a ser usada a bordo da Estação Espacial Internacional. </br></br>

O Engenheiro responsável pela área de Manufatura Avançada da ESA, Advenit Makaya, explica: “O desenvolvimento de soluções de fabricação fora da Terra para peças de grande dimensão, num contexto de exploração humana, será essencial para aumentar a sustentabilidade e a robustez de futuras missões espaciais.”</br></br>

Conhecido como IMPERIAL, este projeto tem como objetivo desenvolver métodos de fabricação fora da Terra que superem as restrições de construção das impressoras 3D atuais, permitindo uma fácil construção e manutenção a bordo, aumentando a autossuficiência de futuras missões espaciais.</br></br>

“Com esta atividade, superámos uma das principais limitações da impressão 3D - o volume de construção - ao usar uma impressora 3D compacta, capaz de processar termoplásticos de alto desempenho” diz Ugo Lafont o especialista em materiais da ESA. “Esta é uma grande conquista que ampliará o campo de aplicação deste processo de fabricação “on-demand”.”</br></br>

O projeto está a ser realizado para a ESA através de um consórcio liderado pela <a href="https://www.ohb.de/" target="_blank">OHB</a> na Alemanha, a <a href="https://www.azimutspace.com/" target="_blank">Azimut Space</a> na Alemanha, o </a href="https://www.ait.ie/" target="_blank">Athlone Institute of Technology</a> na República da Irlanda e a <a href="https://beeverycreative.com/fundedprojects/" target="_blank">BEEVERYCREATIVE</a> em Portugal que desenvolveu a impressora 3D. </br></br>

Antonella Sgambati, gestora do projeto da OHB System AG em Bremen nota que “já foi demonstrado que a fabricação de filamento fundido com polímeros de alto desempenho não é afetada pelo ambiente de microgravidade, abrindo caminho para novos desafios, como a possibilidade de imprimir peças ilimitadas numa direção ou explorar a produção em lotes. No âmbito do projeto, foram identificadas e analisadas novas lacunas tecnológicas fruto do trabalho de I&D e testes de protótipos na BEEVEREYCREATIVE, levando a esta conquista única e tornando a fabricação fora da Terra um passo mais próximo.” </br></br>

É um enorme prazer inovar num grupo de trabalho (os membros do Consórcio e os responsáveis da ESA) que coopera e cria sinergias tão plenamente, afirma Aurora Baptista, CEO da BEEVERYCREATIVE.</br></br>

TCT AWARDS 2018 - Project MELT wins TCT AEROSPACE APPLICATION AWARD 2018 - Project MELT goal was to design, develop and test a fully functional ALM breadboard model (3D printer), able to work under the ISS’s (International Space Station) microgravity conditions and 3D print with engineering polymers with high end mechanical and thermal properties. It was developed by an international consortium composed by SONACA Space GmbH, BEEVERYCREATIVE (tech leader), OHB-System AG and Active Space Technologies SA.

Back in May 2018, BEEVERYCREATIVE revealed that the 3D printer prototype had been delivered to its end user, the European Space Agency (ESA), and at TCT award ceremony on September 26th in Birmingham UK, the project was awarded with the TCT AEROSPACE APPLICATION AWARD 2018.

B2X300 - Press Release - BEEVERYCREATIVE will launch new 3D printer DIY kit, B2X300, in September 2018
 - <strong style="text-align: center">BEEVERYCREATIVE will launch a new product in September 2018, new 3D printer DIY kit for the Maker Segment, B2X300. BEEVERYCREATIVE will present this product publicly at the TCT show 2018 in Birmingham, UK (25-27 September).</strong></br>

BEEVERYCREATIVE is the leading 3D printer manufacturer in Portugal, prepares to launch a new product, the B2X300 DIY 3D printer kit (www.b2x300.com), for the Maker Segment. This is an important step for the company since the last product launch was in 2015, with  helloBEEprusa, BEETHEFIRST+ and BEEINSCHOOL 3D printers on the market. Since 2016 that the company was working on the MELT project (www.beeverycreative.space) for the European Space Agency, and now the company is ready for releasing new products to the market. In November 2017, 2 years after the launch of their 3D printer DIY kit, helloBEEprusa, the company entered a new product development cycle for this segment. BEEVERYCREATIVE has conducted studies such as:</br>

– Collecting quantitative and qualitative information data on helloBEEprusa’s user feedback with Customer Service. The idea was to gather information on doubts, problems and quality control issues;</br>

– Benchmark of multiple companies in this sector, analysing what the best competitor products were and what impact they could have on the product development process and, as a result, on the launch of this new product;</br>

– Market research with the help of a survey where hundreds of people from the maker segment gave very helpful feedback about their user patterns, what they value and other valuable inputs for future product development.</br>

3D Hubs 2016 Printer Guide - BEETHEFIRST has been awarded again the “Best of Plug ‘n’Play 3D Printers” - Dear 3D printing community,</br>

We are proud to announce that our 3D printer BEETHEFIRST was considered again “Best of Plug’n’Play Printer” in the 3D Hubs 2016 Printer guide.</br>

This Guide, based on 5350 reviews from the 3D Hubs community, states that “for users looking for a true plug ‘n’ play 3D printer, such as educators or professionals, the BEETHEFIRST is certainly one of the best options available today.”</br>

It also states that “the printer, which features a modern and enclosed design for carrying like a briefcase between printing locations, is considered by many to be one of the most user-friendly designs on the market (…) this is because the printer was designed to be used directly out of the box with the ability to print within minutes.”</br>

The 3D Hubs Community also valued BEETHEFIRST’s usability, print and build quality, as well as BEEVERYCREATIVE’s helpful and responsive customer service. We pride ourselves on providing the best customer experience possible and as a result, 95% of BEETHEFIRST owners recommend our 3D printer!</br>

It’s the second year in a row that BEETHEFIRST is one of the best in the Plug’n’Play category, for which we thank the 3D Hubs Community and we will keep imprinting change with 3D printing!</br>
