Researchers can now create 3D-printed structures made entirely of liquid. 3D printing technology seems perpetually changing countless fields, from manufacturing to fast food. The potential applications are still fascinating.
Is it even real metal?! Let’s find out! We got some rolls of Chinese Copper and Aluminium PLA into the studio to test. Is this really metal? Does this change the game in metallic 3D Printing?
Mass production or customized production? Here is a quick 3D Printing video to talk more about this disruptive technology. Want more news? Get out free newsletter.
This presentation explores the intersection—and some would say the head-on collision—between 3D printing and intellectual property (IP). Illustrating this high level and entertaining presentation with examples of advances in 3D printing and materials, John Hornick explores the implications for IP and the world and addresses challenging questions, such as: How will the democratization of manufacturing […]
3d printed products on display at 3d printing show from 3dprintingindustry on Vimeo. The manufacturing technique should be very flexible, to boot. We already knew that 3D Systems would be making conductive ink (with the help of Carnegie Mellon University and X5 Systems) to print working parts, like antennas. However, it will also print parts […]
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 […]
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 […]
Adrian Priestman, a British architect, believes he is the first to design and actually use 3D-printed components in the construction industry. The component is a decorative sheath developed for a canopy, which will be used on the roof of the 6 Bevis Marks office in London. The component has been “through an approval process and […]
Cody and Tyler Kor, 20 and 22 respectively, plan to travel from coast to coast and back approximately two years from now in Urbee 2, the 3D-printed car their father Jim Kor and a team of engineers built. The Urbee has been a project since 1996, a project meant to create a low-energy car. They […]
Imagine how much easier it would be to manufacture a car if you could prototype small-scale, physical car parts? The video below shows how Bentley uses Stratasys 3D Printing to model small versions of designs for hubcaps, tires and their treads, auto bodies, interiors, and more. Bentley can efficiently prototype and design top-of-the-line automobiles for […]
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 […]
This chain was printed in a single print. It took about an hour, and it came out of the 3D Printer already linked! It shows how 3D Printing can really save time and money while producing quality products. This chain is plastic, but 3D Printers can do glass, metal, food, wood, even human tissue!
… is it ride-able? Yes… but I wouldn’t drop down many sets of stairs on it just yet!
