Researchers at the federal technology institute ETH Zurich have developed a way of producing body parts containing cartilage, with the help of a 3D printer. One of the first practical applications of this method is reconstructive surgery. Damaged body parts, like a nose or an ear, can be rebuilt in a computer 3D model. Cartilage […]
A team at Carnegie Mellon University, came up with design and its concept actually seems very familiar to crafters everywhere. Inspired by the techniques in handling a glue gun, they used a conventional fused deposition modeling (FDM), which is a form of 3D Printing, to fabricate these types of plastic hairs. You know when you […]

Adidas unveiled the future of performance footwear with Futurecraft 3D, a unique 3D-printed running shoe midsole which can be tailored to the cushioning needs of an individual’s foot. We have developed proprietary 3D printing technology, delivering a “first of its kind” product in an entirely new way. Our 3D-printed material not only allows us to […]
The creation of a 3D printed object is achieved using additive processes. In an additive process an object is created by laying down successive layers of material until the entire object is created.
Have you have ever dreamt of being able to draw in 3D, then now you can thanks to the 3D printing pens. The possibilities really are endless with this latest advance in 3D technology that allows you to put your ideas down on paper, but in a brand new way that really allows those ideas […]
As Danit Peleg said: “I printed my own fashion collection. I really enjoyed the fact that I could create without intermediaries; I could design my own textiles and manufacture my own clothes, all from my own home. I think this is just the beginning. As technologies evolve, we will soon be all printing our own […]
Is it even real metal?! Let’s find out! We got some rolls of Chinese Copper and Aluminium PLA into the studio to test. Is this really metal? Does this change the game in metallic 3D Printing?
MecklerMedia’s Virtual Reality Summit Launches to Explore Innovation Trends in Virtual Reality; October 21, 2015 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, California (New York, NY – September 15, 2015) – MecklerMedia Corporation (OTCQX: MECK) will debut its latest conference, the Virtual Reality Summit on October 21, 2015, to lead a discussion on […]
Medical researchers are increasingly turning to 3D-printing technology to make revolutionary advances in medicine. As its name suggests, a 3D printer prints ink not on a flat substrate, such as paper, but in three dimensions, in successive layers; the ink is substrate and substance in one. The first 3-D printers were developed in the nineteen-eighties, […]
Suffering from a chest wall sarcoma (a type of cancerous tumour that grows, in this instance, around the rib cage), the 54 year old man needed his sternum and a portion of his rib cage replaced. This part of the chest is notoriously tricky to recreate with prosthetics, due to the complex geometry and design […]
It all starts with making a virtual design of the object you want to create. This virtual design is made in a CAD (Computer Aided Design) file using a 3D modeling program (for the creation of a totally new object) or with the use of a 3D scanner (to copy an existing object). A 3D […]
At Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (VT), Christopher Williams heads the effort to further advance 3-D printing–known among engineers as additive manufacturing–with copper, a widely used conductor in electronics. Williams is using a process called binder jetting in which an inkjet printer selectively jets glue into a bed of copper powder, layer-by-layer. The printed […]
A 3D Printed Cube printed in red strong and flexible plastic. Why is it unusual? Did the founder take on online 3D printing class?
Here is the fist 3D Printed Violin review. They call it the 3Dvarius. And it is the first fully playable electric violin created by the 3D printing technology !
The FDA has approved the first prescription drug made using 3D printing. When will the second 3D Printed drug happen?
3D Printed Duplicate Key This App Lets Anyone 3-D Print “Do-Not-Duplicate” Keys A group of University of Michigan researchers released a new web-based tool that lets users 3-D print any of thousands of “restricted” keys designed to defy copying attempts. Read the Michigan researchers’ full paper: Replication Prohibited: Attacking Restricted Keyways with 3D Printing
A new study from consulting giant McKinsey says factories are the next fertile ground for the “Internet of things.” While the current trend toward automation and reduction of standard factory floor staff will continue, Kaas added that “any skill set which truly requires handling of data and analytics” will be highly in demand for manufacturers […]
Here are some fun things you can make with a 3D Printer. This is a good way to show the capabilities of 3D Printing.
Check out the 3D Printing MBA. It will keep companies from spending way too much on unnecessary expenses and teaching the business side of 3D Printing. In coordination with the Association of 3D Printing, the course promises to keep entrepreneurs and executives on track for the fundamentals of running any 3D Printing business. 3D Printing […]
Inside 3D Printing Conference & Expo – West Coast’s Largest 3D Printing Show! Inside 3D Printing is returning to Santa Clara on October 20-22! Since its inception in 2013, the Inside 3D Printing Conference and Expo has quickly grown to become the largest professional 3D printing event worldwide. Inside 3D Printing Santa Clara will feature […]
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.
3D Printing Companies – Which 3D Printing Firms Will Succeed? from Bill Decker Here is a quick 3D Printing slide show talking about potential successes and failures in 3D Printing
Redwood City-based Carbon3D – which developed Continuous Liquid Interface Production technology (CLIP) – a 3D printing technology that grows parts from UV curable resins at speeds as much as 25 to 100 times faster than conventional 3D printing processes. The resulting parts boast mechanical properties that are applicable for a range of vehicle needs.
