If doctors and plane manufacturers and world-class champions can use 3D printing to become best in class, imagine how you can use this technology for your applications. You have already heard about 3D printing with plastics. What you may not know is now, you can 3D print with metal! Picture this: In one room, surgeons remove a tumor infected bone from a patient.

Spoiler alert: all secrets revealed! See how we unveil the magic behind the Ball and Vase trick using SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD and 3D printing. I’ve considered myself a magician since the age of nine, so it has been a passion of mine for quite some time now. I actually used to have my own business called JL Magic, and I directed a kid’s camp called the Kent Cummins Magic Camp (now the Fantastic Magic Camp) to help children develop life skills by learning and practicing magic, juggling, and puppetry.

It might be the most commonly asked question during my years at GoEngineer, and it was easily my least favorite question to answer. “Do you print in metal?” It may surprise you to learn, but having to answer “no,” or more commonly “not yet,” isn’t actually why I disliked that particular question. Over time I’ve become adept at fielding the question in ways that kept their interest and channeled their excitement toward tangible options.

SOLIDWORKS World 2017 saw the introduction of SOLIDWORKS CAM and the start of SOLIDWORKS doing manufacturing. SOLIDWORKS World 2018 featured a “shop floor experience” showing the Design to Manufacturing workflow that SOLIDWORKS enables, manufacturing parts live in the Partner Pavilion. But cutting material to make parts is not the only way to make things anymore. Additive Manufacturing, or 3D Printing, is reaching a maturity where it is not just for prototypes anymore.

Over the past thirty years, Additive Manufacturing (AM) technology has become a familiar route for validating CAD before committing to costly manufacturing tooling and processes. It may come as a surprise to some just how broadly the range of roles AM technology now plays in mechanical design and manufacturing, thanks to the swiftly changing professional desktop 3D printer ecosystem. In addition to traditional rapid prototyping, this technology now offers teams better tools for shaping initial
