Suffering from a chest wall sarcoma (a type of cancerous tumour that grows, in this instance, around the rib cage), the 54 year old man needed his sternum and a portion of his rib cage replaced. This part of the chest is notoriously tricky to recreate with prosthetics, due to the complex geometry and design […]
It all starts with making a virtual design of the object you want to create. This virtual design is made in a CAD (Computer Aided Design) file using a 3D modeling program (for the creation of a totally new object) or with the use of a 3D scanner (to copy an existing object). A 3D […]
At Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (VT), Christopher Williams heads the effort to further advance 3-D printing–known among engineers as additive manufacturing–with copper, a widely used conductor in electronics. Williams is using a process called binder jetting in which an inkjet printer selectively jets glue into a bed of copper powder, layer-by-layer. The printed […]

Inside 3D Printing Santa Clara will feature […]
We’ve all seen drones, whether on TV or in-person, and we’ve all seen 3D printers, too. A 3D printed drone, therefor doesn’t sound too impressive, considering they require typical mechanical parts. The thing is, like with most 3D printed objects, a 3D printed drone doesn’t exactly sound like a great investment, due to the quality […]

The past few years we have witnessed 3D printing transition from a niche hobby to a mainstream practice seen all over the show floors of electronics expos. There is a definite use for 3D printing out there, the problem is that your average consumer doesn’t know what they would use a 3D printer for, besides […]
A construction firm in china has just 3D printed the world’s tallest structure, a five-story apartment building, and an enormous mansion. More 3D Printing innovations are coming out of China as it seeks to be the world leader in 3D Printing technology.
Lady Liberty wasn’t the only gift the French people gave to The States. Right now, a French-based enterprise is assisting in the same American Renaissance we’ve been covering this week here at Tomorrow in Review. I’m talking, of course, about the additive manufacturing or 3-D printing revolution. Over the months, we’ve covered key companies that […]
1. Bikini Continuum, a maker of 3D printed clothing, designed the N12 bikini without any seams or sewing. It’s made of a polymer called Nylon 12, which the company says is “waterproof and remarkably comfortable when wet.” 2. Puppy wheelchair Deadrick, president of 3D manufacturing and design company 3dyn, designed a custom-built wheelchair for TurboRoo. […]

Scotty allows teleporting inanimate physical objects across distance. Each Scotty unit consists of an off-the-shelf 3D printer that we have extended with a 3-axis milling machine, a camera, and a microcontroller for encryption/decryption and transmission. Users place an object into the sender unit, enter the address of a receiver unit, and press the teleport button. […]
There are multiple techniques that are used to produce 3D printed medical models for trial purposes. For example, there are multiple types of 3D printing: 1) Stereolithography This technique uses a UV laser light which focus on phot- reactive resin working in an additive manner to create a solid object. 2) Fused Deposition Modeling This […]
PlasticBank.org has printed the world’s first 3D printing filament from recycled ocean plastic. The video shows the journey of collecting the plastic from the shorelines of Alaska, the sorting, recycling and a successful print from HPDE which is a very difficult plastic type for 3D printing. Selecting a hard to print but commonly found plastic […]
This 3D Printing Video was created with a PowToon app. The European guest does a nice simple explanation of 3D Printing and it’s uses. He talks about 3D Printing Materials as well.
Here is an unusual use for 3D Printing! What kind of 3D Printing Plastic did they use for this?
The recent growth in popularity of 3D printing has ushered in a revolutionary way to interact with big data. Using a 3D printed mockup of a physical environment, one can display information in a unique way and show real-time data patterns. READ MORE What’s Next in 3D Printing? Avi Reichental tours us through the possibilities […]
3D Printing CEO caught at a moment’s notice at a crowded 3D Printing convention. Here the CEO of cy3dprinting speaks with us for a few moments about the 3D Printing Industry.
3D printers aren’t as commonly used by average consumers in Korea due to its huge price tag. The hardware sells at around 2-thousand U.S. dollars. In order to break down such economic barriers, 3D-Developer, founded by its parent trading company, Mirae International Trade,… launched a leasing and rental program for the public. “We want to […]
