The world’s first 3D-printed hotel suite is located in the Philippines. Planning a vacation to the Philippines? Consider staying at the Lewis Grand Hotel, where a newly-printed room awaits its first guests. You read that right. The hotel, which is located in Angeles City, Pampanga, has the world’s first 3D-printed hotel suite. READ MORE […]
Peter Sondergaard, Senior Vice President at Gartner Research, recently spoke to Silicon Republic about the changing workforce around the world. Sondergaard sees endless opportunities for manufacturing, highlighting the role 3D printing could play in the automotive industry. It would essentially negate the need to hang on to costly, space-taking stock. He also touched on the […]
A patent doesn’t guarantee that Apple will produce a printer, however — as with most large design companies — the tech giant files and receives thousands of patents, for everything from haptic feedback systems to staircases to public transportation systems. And it’s highly unlikely that anything they might make would be open hardware, despite the […]
The TIKO looks quite impressive with its UNIBODY design creating one solid piece thus eliminating all the problems like mis-alignments, constant calibration and inaccurate prints that came with separate rail 3d printing systems.
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 […]
Carbon3D has just unveiled a groundbreaking new 3D printing process which could revolutionize the industry. Their process is 25-100x’s faster than current technology. Read and see more on this new Continuous Liquid Interface Production technology (CLIP) at http://3dprint.com/51566/carbon3d-clip-3d-printing/
Is HP rewriting the rules for the 3D Printing industry? HP’s announcement of it’s Multi Jet Fusion 3D printer is clearly advancing 3d printing technology and changing the 3d printing industry. Watch as a 1/4 lb 3D printed chain link, created using new HP Multi Jet Fusion™ Technology, lifts a car straight off the ground! […]
Ok, not an expert on best selling 3d printers, not an expert on 3d printing. Here is an ordinary man in front of his computer producing videos on 3d Printed guns. It’s mainstream.
Here is a quick video with the 3D Printing Channel. Today we talk with Scott from Stratasys at the latest trade show in Detroit. Stay tuned for more at: http://3dprintingchannel.com/stratasys/
The 3-D printing in Zero-G technology demonstration experiment will show that a 3-D printer can work normally in space. A 3-D printer extrudes streams of heated plastic, metal or other material, building layer on top of layer to create three-dimensional objects. Testing a 3-D printer on the space station is the first step towards establishing […]
If you follow the oil and gas industry technology, you may have heard of the ‘smart pig.’ A pig is basically a cylinder of metal sent through a pipeline. It is commonly used to clean out debris that could cause pressure changes or damage to the pipe. More recently is the introduction of smart pigs. […]
Adding to the ever growing list of 3d-printable materials, researchers at the University of the West of England have developed a new way to 3d-print ceramic. As you may already know, ceramics require a very high temperature usually in a kiln to harden the ceramic material into a final product which is then glazed. The […]
You may have heard that HP tried to join the 3d-printing game in 2010 when it signed an agreement with Stratasys, which was going to start manufacturing 3d-printers under the HP brand name. However, the agreement fell through in 2012 and was discontinued. Well two years after that failure, HP has come back to say […]
If you pay attention to the major innovation in the 3d-printing industry, its practically guaranteed you have heard of Stratasys. These guys have been around since the dawn of 3d-printing. S. Scott Crump was one of the first innovators of the additive manufacturing technology when he wanted to make a toy frog for his daughter […]
Retinal degeneration is a leading cause of blindness. With recent developments in 3d-printing technology it is possible to actually print eye cells. The added precision with a 3d-printer can arrange the cells in the complex arrangements necessary to function. Retinal damage is a three dimensional problem requiring layers of cells intricately placed. Researchers at Cambridge […]
Well acoustic cloaking anyway. Duke University has created a pyramid of layered plastic intricately layered and cut with precise holes so when any sound wave such as sonar hits the device, the waves appear as if they are coming from the surrounding. Basically the device and anything beneath it are hidden. I am sure the […]
Maybe you have heard of graphene. For many it was the holy-grail of material sciences. This material is a single layer of carbon atoms. The carbon atoms arrange to make a honeycomb shape. With a thickness of one carbon atom, it is considered two dimensional, yes TWO-DIMENSIONAL. It is essentially the thinnest layer of graphite. […]
Energy has always been a major issue in the development of a nation. Sustainable energy is absolutely paramount to continued growth and expansion. 3d printing has already made major leaps in the energy field. Printed batteries are already a reality. As the renewable energy movement has gained more and more momentum, 3d printed solar panels […]
Living in Boulder has been somewhat enlightening through the constant harassment by so many protesting groups trying to save the world. We eat too much, they eat too little, the tigers are dying, the trees are disappearing, the ozone is depleting, meat is murder. One of these messages actually got through my head. Recycling. It […]
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 […]
