Here is a video from the Shapeways store in NYC. The CEO mentions that his firm prints 100,000 items each month. The 3D Printing Trade Associations confirm this.
Below, watch a little boy get a custom-fitted 3D-printed mask for his Halloween costume! First, his head is scanned from several different angles, then an engineer uses CAD (computer aided design) to build a duck bill that custom fits the boy’s head! Say goodbye to waiting in line at the Halloween store or crowding in […]
As the 2013 golf season is coming to a close for some of us, we look back at the 2013 season and think about the amount of time, money, and effort spent this season out on the course. One might look back on those beautiful, mid summer afternoons and reminisce on the good rounds, the […]
Natural Machines can 3D print food – pasta, ravioli, even chocolate! One of their goals is to keep the food natural, appetizing, and free from additives that tend to scare customers even without the science fiction feel of 3D printing.
We already know this, but with a 3D printer we can print all kinds of fun toys! In the video below, we’re shown just how strong a 3D-printed object can be! A man stands on a 3D-printed object ‘infiltrated,’ or soaked in powerful oil, to make it withstand his weight!
Will we print what we need on the moon? The European space agency yes….3.5 meters in 60 minutes and a building built in a single week!
The people at Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) are “global leaders in providing technology-enabled business solutions and services” in order to aid clients with solutions to their biggest challenges. They held a discussion with experts in the 3D printing industry touching upon the effects the technology could have on manufacturing and their supply chains moving forward. […]
This quick video shows 3d Printing coming home to everyone with a 3D Printer
According to researchers at Michigan Technology University, 3D printing is greener than the alternative. 3D printing an object (from the very beginning of extracting raw materials to the very end in depositing the material layer by layer to produce a 3D result) takes “41 to 64 percent less energy than making it in a factory.” […]
3D printing technology is taking a science fiction type turn taking on possibilities that would have seemed unfeasible only a few years ago. View the 3d printed parts list.
Large full scale prototypes for when you need precision. Prints in 120 different materials. Different properties can be printing at the same time
3D Print Buildings? Is this futuristic or are people doing it now? The Book, How to 3D Print Money talks about 3D Printed buildings
Located in the San Francisco Bay Area, Fathom’s creative team of engineers and designers work with some of the most innovative companies in the world today, helping to produce their next generation of products. If you are looking to deliver products to the market faster and more efficiently while reducing new product introduction costs, FATHOM […]
So we all know that it takes incredible engineering and medical prowess to bioprint an organ or any human part – but why is it hard, even for the folks who do it? There are four levels of complexity in bioprinting. The director of the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine in North Carolina identified […]
Bertrand Sicot, the CEO of Dassault Systemes SolidWorks Corp (a company that produces 3D CAD software), recently said that “there is always a balance between cost, speed and machinery shapes” in manufacturing today. He believes that traditional manufacturing won’t go away anytime soon. Maybe it won’t go away soon, but traditional manufacturing is certainly going […]
This 3D Printing Video looks seemingly impossible, but it was able to save time, money and effort and allowed the manufacturer to compete.
A new way to get ahead for youngsters – Gears 2 Robots Tech Academy offers children, teenagers, and college students a place to learn about and use cutting-edge 3D printing technology, build mechanical robots, and create a culture of progress and innovation as its cornerstones. In this video, Andy Ross, founder of the Tech Academy, […]
Skylar Tibbits is shaping the next development, which he calls 4D printing, where the fourth dimension is time. This emerging technology will allow us to print objects that then reshape themselves or self-assemble over time. Think: a printed cube that folds before your eyes, or a printed pipe able to sense the need to expand […]
This tool allows you to design and print at the same time. Shown this week at the 3D Printing Conference
3D printing is getting hyped right now, with a front page story in The Economist and a long article in the Times, but we actually think it is underhyped. Even if it fails to meet some of the expectations of its boosters (and that’s not a foregone conclusion), 3D printing will still probably become an […]
For the first time, Rice University and the people from RepRap established a summer fellowship program that took place this August. The program, initiated by RepRap developer Jordan Miller, is called the Advanced Manufacturing Research Institute (AMRI), enabling a select few students the opportunity to get their hands on RepRap’s 3D printing technology, as a […]
We can soon expect a “working prototype with limited efficiency” of 3D-printed pizza from the N.C. State College of Agriculture and Life Sciences and an engineering company from Texas. Having a 3D printer able to 3D print hot food in zero-gravity will reduce waste and optimize storage. The challenge engineers are facing now is making […]
How Bioprinting Can Help Wounded Veterans Returning Home Researchers at the Wake Forest Institute of Regenerative Medicine (WFIRM) have been working to implement bioprinting to aid soldiers returning home with significant injuries. They helped form the Armed Forces Institute of Regenerative Medicine (AFIRM), an $85 million dollar project focusing primarily on those wounded defending our […]
This was printed in an hour. A single print from a single file. Look at how complex and integrated this object is. It has many layers and was done quickly for a client’s demand
