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 […]

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!

Not everyone who knows about 3D-printed guns is worried – the more you know about them, the less they scare you. The narrator in the following clip discusses after 0:40 how the makeshift shotgun bullets (including a piece of bubble gum) that the makers used were much more effective than the 3D-printed kind. He says […]
By using a precise form of additive manufacturing (layering material), as opposed to subtractive (removing material), a new technology called 3D printing prints a complex three-dimensional object from raw materials. These raw materials can range from PVC plastic to titanium metal to bio-ink, and through the precision of inkjet-like printing heads, can be formed into […]
