The plan to 3D-print a bridge in mid-air was always bonkers. How could a technology best known for creating flimsy prototypes and personalized action figures be used for permanent construction projects? Well, the team at MX3D in Amsterdam just answered all of the hard questions and revealed it: the world’s first 3D-printed bridge. READ MORE
3D Printing for Development and Education USM students became the teachers Tuesday in Portland, training public school teachers on ways to incorporate 3D printing technology into their classrooms.
Check out this 3D Printing Video and see the high end sports car using 3D printed parts!
This 3D printing video is kind of funny, and the host is in Russia (speaking English) showing off 3D Printed kitchen gadgets.
With an eye toward developing a pipeline of manufacturing talent for the future, GE has given 3D printers to 16 Wisconsin schools. It helps GE, it helps 3D Printing and more importantly, it’s a great thing for kids to learn!
Enjoy this fun time elapsed 3D Printing Video and see the newest Star Wars 3D printed figure!
Here is a fun 3D Printing Video to look at. Its a quick way to make a 3D Printing vase!
What tools should you have near your 3D Printer? Watch this quick video and see what our friend thinks.
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 […]
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. […]
Duck Gets 3D-Printed Foot | This duck is missing a foot, but his rescuers got a 3D printer so they can keep printing him new feet. 3D Printed prosthetics have been around for a while, and here is another chance for people who care.
My introduction to 3d-printing began when my roommate and I attempted to make a magnetic motor. It didn’t work well, but it would have been impossible without 3d-printed plastic pieces. The problem we actually ran into was the lack of variety with the magnets. We used neodymium rare earth magnets. These are considered the most […]
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. […]
I can’t believe how crazy good the lion turned out! Which one was your favourite and what would you like to turn into a lithophane? I sincerely hope you found this video interesting to watch, and I would very much appreciate if you could spend 1 second and give this video a like, thank you! […]
I remember growing up in an area of Colorado under heavy construction. We constantly had houses being built around the neighborhood and being the danger-ignorant young ones we were, we would constantly go play with all of the materials left over. Thank god for Tetanus shots, because with the number of holes in my feet […]
The One:1… The name for this car is based off its one to one ratio of horsepower to weight (in kilograms). The weight is at 1340 kilograms, so this beast tops out with a coma-inducing 1340 horses under the hood. Where does 3d-printing come into this? As you can imagine, keeping the weight down is […]
The London Bike show in February revealed the first 3d-printed bike. Empire bikes in collaboration with Renishaw additive manufacturing was able to completely print and assemble the titanium bike frame making the model significantly lighter and stronger than a comparable aluminum model made from traditional manufacturing processes. The unique structure building capabilities of 3d-printing enabled […]
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 […]
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 […]
