3D scanning does not have to require expensive equipment and software. Using photogrammetry techniques you can do quite a bit of scanning for free with just a camera and some free, open-source software. For lighting, a cloudy day is good or for small objects fluorescent lighting also casts very little shadow. You can also try […]
Lady Liberty wasn’t the only gift the French people gave to The States. Right now, a French-based enterprise is assisting in the same American Renaissance we’ve been covering this week here at Tomorrow in Review. I’m talking, of course, about the additive manufacturing or 3-D printing revolution. Over the months, we’ve covered key companies that […]
1. Bikini Continuum, a maker of 3D printed clothing, designed the N12 bikini without any seams or sewing. It’s made of a polymer called Nylon 12, which the company says is “waterproof and remarkably comfortable when wet.” 2. Puppy wheelchair Deadrick, president of 3D manufacturing and design company 3dyn, designed a custom-built wheelchair for TurboRoo. […]

Scotty allows teleporting inanimate physical objects across distance. Each Scotty unit consists of an off-the-shelf 3D printer that we have extended with a 3-axis milling machine, a camera, and a microcontroller for encryption/decryption and transmission. Users place an object into the sender unit, enter the address of a receiver unit, and press the teleport button. […]
HP Sprout at Intel Booth – CES 2015. Watch what this HP computer does with 3D Printing and 3D Scanning. It turns 3D objects into 3D Renders.
There are multiple techniques that are used to produce 3D printed medical models for trial purposes. For example, there are multiple types of 3D printing: 1) Stereolithography This technique uses a UV laser light which focus on phot- reactive resin working in an additive manner to create a solid object. 2) Fused Deposition Modeling This […]
3D Printing’s footprint has doubled since last year’s CES show. Here are some 3D Printing highlights.
This video was originally produced by the Disseny Hub museum and gallery in Barcelona. It provides a graphic vision of the 3DP today and in the future. The question is, “what is the current state-of-the-art, and what remains fiction’ – you decide. While it is an interesting video it doesn’t go heavily into 3D printing […]
Here is an interesting video of a 3D Printer in action. Which CAD software was used is up to the viewer! From what we understand, this was done by an ordinary person using an easily find 3D Printing Machine.
The story starts back in November, when Wilmore put together the ISS’s very first 3D printer, a collaboration between NASA and company Made In Space. About a month later, Wilmore noted to mission control that a socket wrench would be helpful to have. Instead of putting it on the supply, however, Made In Space mocked […]

PlasticBank.org has printed the world’s first 3D printing filament from recycled ocean plastic. The video shows the journey of collecting the plastic from the shorelines of Alaska, the sorting, recycling and a successful print from HPDE which is a very difficult plastic type for 3D printing. Selecting a hard to print but commonly found plastic […]
Shapeways Customer Service Team Lead Thomas Ellison discusses the basics of copyright, patent and intellectual property for designers and Shapeways shop owners at the Shapeways Small Business Bootcamp on October 24, 2014. See if he discusses 3D Printing materials as well.
This 3D Printing Video was created with a PowToon app. The European guest does a nice simple explanation of 3D Printing and it’s uses. He talks about 3D Printing Materials as well.
This presentation explores the intersection—and some would say the head-on collision—between 3D printing and intellectual property (IP). Illustrating this high level and entertaining presentation with examples of advances in 3D printing and materials, John Hornick explores the implications for IP and the world and addresses challenging questions, such as: How will the democratization of manufacturing […]
Here is an unusual use for 3D Printing! What kind of 3D Printing Plastic did they use for this?
