Do I need a 3D CT volume with the highest resolution for a detailed analysis, or is a fast overview scan sufficient to define the regions from which I want to make additional high-resolution detail scans?
Aerospace and defense manufacturing, and associated maintenance and repair operations (MRO), are undergoing some fundamental technology shifts right now. One of the drivers of this is additive manufacturing (AM), also known as 3D printing.
Studies identify a potential health risk from emissions released from 3D printers.

Desktop 3D printers generate ultrafine particles (UFPs) while in operation. UFPs may pose a health concern since they are the size of nanoparticles and may be inhaled and penetrate deep into the human pulmonary system.
The Innovation Space for Additive Manufacturing will be located at W1201 at Singapore Polytechnic and set up as an exclusive space for metal additive manufacturing, where a Renishaw AM system and auxiliary equipment will be based. The partnership creates an entirely new and beneficial pathway for both staff and students of Singapore Polytechnic, as well as Renishaw.
