So we all know that it takes incredible engineering and medical prowess to bioprint an organ or any human part – but why is it hard, even for the folks who do it? There are four levels of complexity in bioprinting. The director of the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine in North Carolina identified […]
Dying patients could someday receive a 3D-printed organ made from their own cells rather than wait on long lists for the short supply of organ transplants. Such a futuristic dream remains far from reality, but university labs and private companies have already taken the first careful steps by using 3D-printing technology to build tiny chunks […]
The Artec Group announced the release of Artec Studio 9.2. This release constitutes a major leap forward for their 3d printing software and includes features such as the auto-align tool, photogrammetry support, new editing tools and other options.
You can print guitars. You can print records. You can do it will an app. We are in a great time for a 3D Ecosystem
Bertrand Sicot, the CEO of Dassault Systemes SolidWorks Corp (a company that produces 3D CAD software), recently said that “there is always a balance between cost, speed and machinery shapes” in manufacturing today. He believes that traditional manufacturing won’t go away anytime soon. Maybe it won’t go away soon, but traditional manufacturing is certainly going […]
Clemons Coding Company develops software that helps you translate everyday objects and ideas into 3D printing plans. Their software is simply and thoughtfully structured to meet the needs of users at every skill level. Your potential is limited only by your imagination for the types of objects you want to design for 3D printing.
This 3D Scanner can scan and print 3D Objects. It was revealed at the 3D Printing Conference and the crowd enjoyed it.
This 3D Printing Video looks seemingly impossible, but it was able to save time, money and effort and allowed the manufacturer to compete.
A new way to get ahead for youngsters – Gears 2 Robots Tech Academy offers children, teenagers, and college students a place to learn about and use cutting-edge 3D printing technology, build mechanical robots, and create a culture of progress and innovation as its cornerstones. In this video, Andy Ross, founder of the Tech Academy, […]
Here the CEO of 3D Systems give us a few minutes and a few thoughts as to where the 3D Printing Industry will go. Look for more with Avi coming soon on our Podcast
Skylar Tibbits is shaping the next development, which he calls 4D printing, where the fourth dimension is time. This emerging technology will allow us to print objects that then reshape themselves or self-assemble over time. Think: a printed cube that folds before your eyes, or a printed pipe able to sense the need to expand […]
This 3D Printer has no walls and no boundaries. So you can print a toy, a statue, even an airplane wing
The Science Fiction book 21st Century Robot explores the fictional world of Jimmy the Robot and his human, Simon Egerton. Future release of the book will contain open source design files for you to modify your very own 3D printable Jimmy the Robot! You can be a part of designing and building 21st Century Robots. […]
This tool allows you to design and print at the same time. Shown this week at the 3D Printing Conference
3D printing is getting hyped right now, with a front page story in The Economist and a long article in the Times, but we actually think it is underhyped. Even if it fails to meet some of the expectations of its boosters (and that’s not a foregone conclusion), 3D printing will still probably become an […]
A Dog 3D Printed? Well, not yet anyway. But this working toy dog with moving arms and legs came right out of the 3D Printer. It’s an example of what can be done when real arms and legs are needed also.
For the first time, Rice University and the people from RepRap established a summer fellowship program that took place this August. The program, initiated by RepRap developer Jordan Miller, is called the Advanced Manufacturing Research Institute (AMRI), enabling a select few students the opportunity to get their hands on RepRap’s 3D printing technology, as a […]
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 […]
This heart shaped box was printed in an hour and worked immediately. It’s not only a box, but also a puzzle!
The Second Edition is out! The Paperback can be found at Amazon and Kindle. Special Price, reduced for Kindle. Get the trends, information and opportunities on the 3D Printing industry. See how governments and other key players are reacting. Read about trends and myths in the 3D Printing Industry.
This stick figure was printed and all the parts can move. It was done working and moving after a single print. No assembly requires. You can print it and play with it immediately. 3D printing can get a toy into a child’s hand right away!
Ivan Owen and Richard Van As have been steadily producing more and more Robohands, now at over 170 people helped, since they created its design in 2011. At first, the hand was a conglomeration of cables, screws, and metal. Now, much of its production has been replaced with more efficient and more contemporary 3D printing […]
This is an actual working wrench, done in a single print. It can work on bicycles, bolts, toys, and even cars. Imagine if you were on a boat somewhere in the ocean and needed a wrench. You could 3D Print one in an hour
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 […]
