The Micro is hitting Kickstarter today with the sole intention of becoming the first consumer 3D printer that’s at once accessible, affordable and easy on the eyes. ‘The dream here is definitely that you take something and install it as fast as the fastest plug-and-play device that you’ve ever seen and you’re focused on the […]
The London Bike show in February revealed the first 3d-printed bike. Empire bikes in collaboration with Renishaw additive manufacturing was able to completely print and assemble the titanium bike frame making the model significantly lighter and stronger than a comparable aluminum model made from traditional manufacturing processes. The unique structure building capabilities of 3d-printing enabled […]

We have already had a few articles about the possibility and actual use of 3d-printing in terms of constructing houses. The Dutch made the Kamermaker 3d-printer to print giant blocks to make a house fitting to the iconic architecture of Amsterdam. There was a Ted talk about the use of 3d-printing to make housing in […]
Exact measurements of each model can be used to make perfectly fitting 3D Printed garments. 3D Printing’s high tech uses comes to a consumer product that gets modeled all over the world. Even though they are in the forefront of fashion, 3D Printing experts were able to help the fashionistas get even more fashionable.
http://3dprintingventures.com/about-us/ This is a classic funding candidate for 3D Printing. This printer is easy to use and makes a lot of different things. What was interesting about this 3D Printer was the quiet and open air operation of it. It seems to be easy to use and easy to assemble.
This video clip demonstrates just some of the applications where 3d printing is being employed by dental labs and maxillo-facial labs to aid surgery planning. The Objet 3D printing dental system allows small and medium sized labs to take full advantage of the revolution in digital scanning with a fully automated and acccurate process that […]
The Objet 3D printing system allows small and medium sized labs to take full advantage of the revolution in digital scanning with a fully automated and acccurate process that reduces their cost-per-case, allows them to achieve higher output with less manpower and ultimately, compete with larger labs. This is another example of a market that […]
The great thing about 3d-printing is that it enables many people to finally prototype that invention they have had in their head for so long with minimal cost. The first time I heard about 3d-printing was when I was in the process of trying to prototype my own invention, a magnetic generator. That’s when I […]
It’s a question of time before a manufacturer comes forward and takes the lead on 3D Printed Musical Instruments. Which firm will take the lead? Maybe the firm who did 3D Printed Guitars? More on 3D Printed Guitars: http://3dprintingchannel.com/3d-printed-guitar-at-music-show-in-la-3d-printing-comes-to-rock-n-roll/ And here people say “I want my 3D Printed Guitar” http://3dprintingchannel.com/3d-printed-guitar-makes-music-at-namm-show-3d-printed-musical-instruments-are-here/
A 3D printer makes an object by squirting out a tiny filament of hot plastic, adding one layer at a time. That’s why it’s called additive manufacturing. You send the printer a computer file that’s a 3D model of something — an iPod case, a bike part, your head — then it prints out the […]
After seeing the printer in action, We have came away impressed. As many of you know the printer does not operate the same as other 3D printers. Most printers an extruder that will run on X,Y,Z axes, in the same typical way. However, the Orion Delta is a bit different. It has 3 vertical bars […]
Fred Hagemeister, University of Richmond, discusses 3D Printing at the ACS Instructional Technologists Meeting at Rollins College, Winter Park, Florida. “3-D printing”—the popular name for “additive manufacturing”—has been identified as one of the coming cluster of “disruptive” technologies. Expectations are that it will be a way—not the only way—to make all sorts of stuff. Food. […]
If you follow the oil and gas industry technology, you may have heard of the ‘smart pig.’ A pig is basically a cylinder of metal sent through a pipeline. It is commonly used to clean out debris that could cause pressure changes or damage to the pipe. More recently is the introduction of smart pigs. […]
Adding to the ever growing list of 3d-printable materials, researchers at the University of the West of England have developed a new way to 3d-print ceramic. As you may already know, ceramics require a very high temperature usually in a kiln to harden the ceramic material into a final product which is then glazed. The […]
Netflix Inc. has acquired the rights to the documentary Print The Legend, about a 3D printing industry which has drawn recent attention from Wall Street. Netflix said, the documentary, which Netflix will premiere exclusively in 2014, goes behind-the-scenes of the top American 3-D printing brands as they fight to dominate the sector. So-called 3-D printers […]
A 3D printer is a limited type of industrial robot that is capable of carrying out an additive process under computer control. While 3D printing technology has been around since the 1980s, it was not until the early 2010s that the printers became widely available commercially. The first working 3D printer was created in 1984 […]
You may have heard that HP tried to join the 3d-printing game in 2010 when it signed an agreement with Stratasys, which was going to start manufacturing 3d-printers under the HP brand name. However, the agreement fell through in 2012 and was discontinued. Well two years after that failure, HP has come back to say […]
If you pay attention to the major innovation in the 3d-printing industry, its practically guaranteed you have heard of Stratasys. These guys have been around since the dawn of 3d-printing. S. Scott Crump was one of the first innovators of the additive manufacturing technology when he wanted to make a toy frog for his daughter […]
Retinal degeneration is a leading cause of blindness. With recent developments in 3d-printing technology it is possible to actually print eye cells. The added precision with a 3d-printer can arrange the cells in the complex arrangements necessary to function. Retinal damage is a three dimensional problem requiring layers of cells intricately placed. Researchers at Cambridge […]
