Nasa set out a 3D printed habitat challenge HASSELL and structure engineer Eckersley O’Callaghan created an autonomous modular robot to create 3D printed homes using material from Mars. The bots will have more than one role that includes battery storage, scouting, logistics, excavation, and 3D printing.
World-class motorcycles, ATVs, utility vehicles, Side x Side and watercraft vehicles make up a portion of the unique product portfolio that has made Kawasaki a premium performance brand around the world….but this is how Monster Energy Kawasaki technologists are using 3D Printing technology to transform digital images into physical parts.
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 […]
Here is an example of 3D Printing using titanium! Gone are the days when all we print is plastic!
This silly string shooting tank was started a year ago and now it is finally complete. In this video I present the 3D printed parts, show how to assemble them and then demonstrate the tank in action. This is not my greatest design, but the concept does work and the tank is fun to operate. […]
3D Printing with cloth. It avoids gluing and setting and makes the process repeatable!
Alterfact is an experimental design studio created by Lucile Sciallano and Ben Landau in 2014. They push boundaries of a traditionally plastic-based medium and use clay instead to print cool 3D clay pottery. Alterfact has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
The plan to 3D-print a bridge in mid-air was always bonkers. How could a technology best known for creating flimsy prototypes and personalized action figures be used for permanent construction projects? Well, the team at MX3D in Amsterdam just answered all of the hard questions and revealed it: the world’s first 3D-printed bridge. READ MORE
It even works when you have moving parts! Images can actually wrap around 180° – so you can get some nice details on the sides and edges of your parts. We can even apply graphics to mechanical moving parts like this print in place, no bearing fidget spinner! Hydro dipping also know as Water Drape […]
With metal being the new 3D Printing rage, people want to see demonstrations more and more. In many ways 3D Printing with metal can be cheaper and more efficient than traditional metal manufacturing.
Here are 7 things you didn’t know were made with a 3D Printer!
Janos Veres, Novel and Printed Electronics Program Lead at Palo Alto Research Center (PARC), A Xerox Company, describes how Xerox Innovation Group is working to improve production techniques for smart devices with 3D printing.
A 3D Printed Cube printed in red strong and flexible plastic. Why is it unusual? Did the founder take on online 3D printing class?
Spectra Chrome has perfected the “spray-on” chrome process and we can prove it! Part of the innovations found among the 3d Printing revolution
Part 2 of the printing project using Autodesk and other tools for remote, collaborative 3d printing. It uses many 3D printing materials to get the job done. And uses people to do it from all over.
Here is an interesting project in 3d printing using Autodesk and other tools for remote, collaborative 3d printing. It uses many 3D printing materials to get the job done.
LIX THE SMALLEST 3D PRINTING PEN from LIX 3D PEN on Vimeo. Want to create what you imagine? How about writing and drawing without paper? Writing and drawing in the air is now possible with LIX, a 3D printing pen! This extraordinarily professional tool will chalenge your deepest creativity. Basically, Lix is a professional tool […]
We have developed 3D laser sintering which will make your parts from aluminum, titanium and many other materials. Not exactly goodbye machine shop but possibly goodbye foundry…some day. For now we are able to apply 1 cubic inch of material per hour, which is a little slow but things tend to improve quickly. This is […]
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 […]
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. […]
I remember growing up in an area of Colorado under heavy construction. We constantly had houses being built around the neighborhood and being the danger-ignorant young ones we were, we would constantly go play with all of the materials left over. Thank god for Tetanus shots, because with the number of holes in my feet […]
In this episode, our friends inkjet and voxel debate whether engineers are necessary for 3D Printing. Can regular normal people use 3D Printing technology without an expert?
If you read posts from this site enough, you may have already picked up why 3D printing is developing into such an important technology. ANYTHING can be custom fit for anybody. Glasses, cellphone cases, hearing aides, and the list goes on. Only recently has the material technology emerged to fully print an electronic with integrated […]
This is just a quick 3D Printing Video to show that yes, we can now use metal in our 3D Printers. So far, 3D printers have used primarily plastic to create images, because it’s an easy material to work with. But last month, 3D printing took another leap forward when Michigan Technological University scientists invented […]
