3D Printing Basics New series! Hackaday had complained that getting started with 3D printing was still too hard, so over the next weeks I’ll be releasing a 10-part series that covers all the knowledge about 3D printing that is too easily taken for granted.
Watch a 3D printed a Giant Octopus, the whole 3d print took 11 hours. This was printed in blue with Hatchbox PLA Filament.
Why 3D Printing Is Going to Need Blockchain Blockchain has the potential to solve 3D printing’s inherent security risks before they become a major issue. If 3D printing technology wants to get ahead of its inherent security issues, the best way would be to adopt blockchain. Speaking at the 2019 Pacific Design & Manufacturing Show, […]
A Compilation of 3d printing timelapses / octolapses printed on the Biqu BX 3D Printer.
Adopting additive manufacturing (AM) often means reconsidering the materials that a manufacturer is comfortable with. Manufacturers can use the pivot to AM as an opportunity to investigate new material options that may be more sustainable than conventional feedstock, such as plastic filaments made from plants or metal powders made from recycled scrap. The pivot also […]
Inspired by the peculiar phenomenon that occurs when operating a glue gun, we present a technique for 3D printing strands of hair, fiber, and bristles using inexpensive 3D printers.
Topics covered include: • A 3d printed cast that can stop muscles from getting weak while the bone is healing • Augmented robotic arms, and human extensions • A charity that lets people 3d print prosthetic arms for kids • The different ways Titanium is being used to replace different body parts • Examples of […]
After realizing that established suppliers couldn’t fully meet the need for COVID-19 test kits, Origin, a manufacturer of 3D printers, approached Dymax about partnering on a 3D-printed nasopharyngeal test swab project. Dymax light- curing conveyor systems allowed the company to ramp up production to meet the skyrocketing demand, producing more than 2 million swabs in […]

There are a lot of different 3D modeling and design software to create models for 3D printing . in this video we going to break these 3D printing software into 3 categories, first for beginners with no experience, high-end professional software, and then free professional software…
Carbon is a famously versatile element in the diversity of structures it can take, from graphite like in the tip of a pencil to a diamond. Both are just pure carbon, but with atoms arranged in different patterns. The latest development in the nanoworld of carbon comes from a team that has designed something called […]

Are large printers worth it, even if they aren’t expensive? Take a look at this 3D Printing video and see!
Here is a quick video explaining the basics of 3D Printing
Design and architecture agency AI SpaceFactory won 500,000 U.S. dollars from NASA after successfully 3D printing a home for astronauts living on the Moon or Mars. The agency made a scale building using materials that can be found on Mars. AI SpaceFactory plans to recycle their construction and make “the first ever space-tech eco-habitat on […]
