Within’s Formula 1 Roll Hoop is featured in Volume 7 of F1 Race Technology magazine.
Lawrence Butcher’s article, ‘Part man, part machine’ discusses the most recent developments in F1 component manufacturing technologies; including innovations in composites, joining techniques, automation and rapid manufacturing.
Within designed this Roll Hoop in partnership with 3T RPD. Made from a strong titanium alloy, this hoop is able to be significantly more light-weight than traditional Roll Hoops, because of the unique advantages conferred by the additive manufacturing process.The Hoop’s internal features would be not only very difficult, but also very expensive to create using traditional manufacturing methods.
Within are featured in the recently released book ‘Fabricated: The New World of 3D Printing’. The book discusses how 3-D printing is becoming increasingly significant in our everyday lives, and how what we once thought of as science fiction, is today rapidly becoming reality.
Within were mentioned by the award-winning editor of Wired UK, David Rowan, in his opening keynote speech at Nimbus Ninety Converge 2013; entitled “A futurist’s look ahead: key trends for 2013 and beyond that will reshape the world”.
You can watch David’s fascinating keynote here. Within’s spinal fusion implants and lightweight, load bearing engine blocks are discussed at 09.27 minutes.
Within’s cufflinks demonstrate the complexity of design achievable by using the EOS Precious M080 Laser Sintering Machine and Cookson Precious Metal’s e-Manufacturing Solution. The system liberates designers, allowing for cost effective production of bespoke jewellery in precious metals. The video on the website shows the cufflinks being grown layer by layer. Once completed, excess powder on the build plate is brushed away to reveal the finished cuff links (the excess powder can then be reused in the next build).
