A former Air Force pilot, Mike Joyce with deep expertise in computer science and mathematics, who was seeking a better additive manufacturing platform for use in the aerospace industry founded B9Creations. During his search for an additive manufacturing solution, he discovered there were only two categories of technology – cheap 3D printers for at-home hobbyists and ones costing hundreds of thousands of dollars, well out of reach for small and medium-size businesses. So, Joyce decided to...
A team of researchers from Rey Juan Carlos University, Madrid have 3D printed a set of self-sensing composite parts using B9Creations 3D printing technology. By reinforcing a commercially available photopolymer resin with carbon nanotubes (CNTs), the scientists were able to further functionalize it with electrical conductivity, citing promising applications in structural health monitoring.
B9Creations CEO Shon Anderson has the company, which manufactures 3D Printing technology at its plant located off Deadwood Avenue in Rapid City has been helping with the production of medical equipment sorely needed in the fight against COVID-19 (coronavirus).
The internet is flooded with Americans responding to the need for personal protective gear, from sewing masks to crafting face shields using 3D printers. South Dakota company B9Creations has partnered with medical companies to assist during the coronavirus pandemic. Shon Anderson is CEO of B9Creations and joins us now with more on this assistance and what they are creating.
Someday My Prints Will Come: Additive Manufacturing Insights
Additive manufacturing (AM) or 3D printing technology is impacting how orthopedic surgeries are planned and executed. 3D printers are becoming smaller, more affordable, and more accessible, and free access to open source 3D imaging software has made clinical implementation widely feasible.
B9Creations gave Senator John Thune a tour of their Rapid City facility and showcased the different products they manufactured.
As the CEO of B9Creations, a global additive manufacturing company, and a parent of a 15-year-old, I can tell you that in both roles, I share a common goal: help young people discover their God-given gifts and talents and equip them with a plan to put those to use.
3D printing has found yet another application in the automotive sector. Ding Tool LLC, a company specializing in paintless dent repair tools, is launching a series of 3D printed dent repair tools at the SEMA show this week in Las Vegas. The patent-pending tools were 3D printed using technology and materials from B9Creations, a South Dakota additive manufacturing solutions company.
