Wired magazine talks about Desktop Manufacturing (another term for 3D Printing.) His focus is schools and getting the breed of makers into the mix. Desktop, Personal and easy to use makes it a vector for ideas.
This isn’t the first time the fashion industry has used 3D printing, but it may be the first time an ‘angel’ has. At the 2013 Victoria’s Secret Fashion show, one of the models wore 3D-printed angel wings. Victoria’s Secret hired Shapeways to print the wings, designed by architect Bradley Rothenberg. But to add to the […]
Coral reefs are disappearing at a rapid rate around the world as pollution, overfishing, coastal development, and global warming are all playing a significant part in this alarmingly fast decline. In the Persian Gulf, coastal and off shore developments have left the coral reef ecosystems severely damaged in the waters off of Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, […]
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 […]
The next industrial revolution will be kicked off by 3D printing, and American students need to start learning about it now, suggests MakerBot, which is spearheading a campaign to put a 3D printer in every school. “The hope is it will bring design, prototyping and ingenuity back into the United States,” said John Westrum, vice […]

Kids should have fun with evolution! These scientist-approved 3D-printable models of prehistoric life and info cards make learning fun.
Here our reporter Dane is on the scene asking about 3D Printing applications. See what everyday people think of 3D Printing uses
A 3D scanning type of device has been being discussed in the last year as an important leap in 3D printing technology and an important accessory to it. 3D Systems is releasing this $399 handheld scanner and is immediately available in Staples stores and Cubify. Below, its uses are displayed – it can scan the […]
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, a reporter tests a joystick and new MakeVR software that allows people inexperienced with CAD (computer aided design) to create digital designs for objects in a familiar, simplified way. The technology altogether will come in at only about $500 and should be available on Kickstarter in a few months.
When the 3D Printing Industry needs its own PR, you can bet that the industry is growing. As the 3D Printing PR needs mature, special firms will come to the table to help get the messages out. This is one such firm.
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 […]
Can the Seattle Space Needle be 3D Modeled and 3D Printed? Take a look at this short video and see how one firm is 3D Printing the needle.
“Maker” is a feature-length documentary on the Maker Movement and its impact on society, culture and economy in the U.S.

can Vitamins same the day with 3D Printing in Medical uses? Bioprinting experts agree that using vitamins can be helpful in the process
Material properties are now allowing for an added dimension in 3D printing – time. Thanks to “programmed action of the shape memory fibers,” a 3D-printed object can change shape after being printed. This is called 4D printing. Below, a 3D-printed noodle-like strand distinctly changes shape over time, after having been printed already. First proposed by […]
Simple items such as tote bags can be made with 3D Printing. Time and Money is saved. 3D Printing leaves no waste, no mess and no hassle. 3d Printing technology is hitting the consumer 3D Printing Market
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.
Why wait for delivery when you can 3D Print your own food? Actually this technology really helps in remote areas of the world, and remote places such as space, ships, oil rigs, refineries and other places where bringing raw materials and printing food to specifications makes the most sense. Let’s see what kind of 3D […]
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!
