How 3D Printing Software Will Accelerate the Development of 3D Printing

Coverage Areas: Accelerating Materials Innovation More...

Planned Publication Date: Q4 2019

In the last few years, synergies between the design software space and 3D printing have become increasingly apparent. For example, generative design software takes advantage of 3D printing’s ability to expand manufacturability and vastly enlarges the explorable design candidate space. 3D printing simulation software models the stress profile of a part, and therefore predicts part failure before physically printing it. Within the 3D printing community, we are seeing a trend of 3D printing companies developing and strengthening their software components. Several major examples include Desktop Metal’s software for generative design, Markforged’s cloud-based software for part print optimization, and Arevo’s computer-aided design (CAD) and FEA-based software for 3D printing design and simulation. In this report, we review the most relevant 3D printing software technologies and argue that the formation of a 3D printing software thread (design, simulation, manufacturing, as well as workflow management and data security) with data control through the whole process will be crucial for 3D printing at industrial scale. We expect to see more 3D printing companies either develop their own software strategies or to partner with large software companies in the near future.

Decarbonizing the Industrial Sector: Carbon Capture

Coverage Areas: Owning the Energy Transition

Planned Publication Date: Q4 2019

In our recently-published "Decarbonizing the Industrial Sector" report, we introduced carbon capture as a key technology that will allow multiple industrial sectors to decarbonize their operations by capturing CO₂ emissions from point-sources. In this report, we will look at the cost of carbon capture using multiple configurations, as well as the regulatory framework support needed to support the adoption of carbon capture in the industrial sector.

Connecting the Dots: The Impact of Industrial and Power Decarbonization on Gas Demand

Coverage Areas: Owning the Energy Transition

Planned Publication Date: Q4 2019

Natural gas is often touted as the fuel that will power the ongoing energy transition. Several energy companies such as Shell, Total, and Qatar Petroleum have committed to expand their gas and LNG businesses, with the latter even quitting OPEC in its pursuit for gas. However, as industrial demand sectors such as power, steel manufacturing, paper, residential heating, gradually move towards disruptive, low carbon solutions such as hydrogen, heat pumps, and electric heating, the outlook for gas needs to be revisited. In this report, we connect the dots between the various pieces of the broader energy system, and analyse the collateral impact of emerging technologies on the global gas and LNG markets in the near future.
