Scott Hudson is a professor at Carnegie Mellon University’s Human-Computer Interaction Institute. He developed the felting printer with backing from Disney Research Pittsburgh. The printer works similarly to a regular 3D printer, except it uses yarn instead of plastic spools to create the layers. A felting needle pushes through the yarn, attaching it together. It’s […]
Recently, giant 3D printers in China were able to produce ten houses in just one day, and at a cost of less than $5,000 per house, proving just how time and cost efficient 3D printing can be. So how does 3D printing work, and why is it so efficient? How can 3D Printing enter the […]
This is the show the Japanese producers asked me if they could use a few of my videos on their news/tech show. It once again demonstrates that 3D Printing is global and that the USA doesn’t control the 3D Printing Industry.
The centers–opened inside the Fifth Avenue and Studio City stores in the last month. Staples offers assistance from 3-D printing experts and eventually plans more such centers. “Part of our brand is to help small businesses market themselves,” says Damien Leigh, Staples’ senior vice president of business services. “3-D printing is an emerging technology, and […]
Today it seems there is another mysterious box that has fascinated the public. This time, the box can generate tangible, three-dimensional objects from nothing. The magic of 3D printing is, however, very real and without artifice. Not unlike “The Turk,” people seem to have become entranced by the possibilities of this technology and what it […]

Here is a new and quiet 3D Printer yet to be released and promoted to the 3D Printing Market. While 3D printing technology has been around since the 1980s, it was not until the early 2010s that the printers became widely available commercially. The first working 3D printer was created in 1984 by Chuck Hull […]
As the 3D Printing Industry gets “cooler” more and more things come out. These Dice represent a lot of cool/geeky things in one place – 3D Printing, RPG’s, Geometry and ancient notions of the nature of the universe – so, plenty of stuff for me to talk about. The set I show is the Steampunk […]
3 Recipes for 3D Printing Start Up Failures 1. Being product focused when you need to be market focused. Every start up I look at talks about the great differentiators and how they are 5% better than the competitor. Just because you can out invent Hewlett-Packard doesn’t mean you can out sell them. Does the […]
We have developed 3D laser sintering which will make your parts from aluminum, titanium and many other materials. Not exactly goodbye machine shop but possibly goodbye foundry…some day. For now we are able to apply 1 cubic inch of material per hour, which is a little slow but things tend to improve quickly. This is […]
“We’ve had a great deal of difficulty competing with cheap labor overseas,” said Bakhash, whose father Charlie founded American Pearl in New York’s diamond district in 1950. “Now, with the advent of our platform, we’re no longer taking off-the-shelf parts and welding. There’s no jeweler at a bench with a blowtorch. The cost and labor […]

Startup teams will enjoy access to Chattanooga’s robust network of industry experts and working facilities as they […]
Here is an olympic athlete being 3D Printed! It’s just a promotional 3D Printing video but fun and quick anyway!
The Micro is hitting Kickstarter today with the sole intention of becoming the first consumer 3D printer that’s at once accessible, affordable and easy on the eyes. ‘The dream here is definitely that you take something and install it as fast as the fastest plug-and-play device that you’ve ever seen and you’re focused on the […]
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 […]
This 3D Printing Video speaks about the Zcorp pinter Z corp claims to be the fastest and best quality. Big, actual size 3D Printing. They also feel that running the Zcorp is easy and user friendly.
GIGTANK 2014 is a startup accelerator designed to connect seed stage companies in the additive manufacturing (3D printing), smart grid and healthcare industries with the tools, capital and connections to go to market. Located in Chattanooga, TN – home of America’s fastest and most ubiquitous broadband service – GIGTANK is the world’s only startup accelerator […]
We have already had a few articles about the possibility and actual use of 3d-printing in terms of constructing houses. The Dutch made the Kamermaker 3d-printer to print giant blocks to make a house fitting to the iconic architecture of Amsterdam. There was a Ted talk about the use of 3d-printing to make housing in […]
Exact measurements of each model can be used to make perfectly fitting 3D Printed garments. 3D Printing’s high tech uses comes to a consumer product that gets modeled all over the world. Even though they are in the forefront of fashion, 3D Printing experts were able to help the fashionistas get even more fashionable.
http://3dprintingventures.com/about-us/ This is a classic funding candidate for 3D Printing. This printer is easy to use and makes a lot of different things. What was interesting about this 3D Printer was the quiet and open air operation of it. It seems to be easy to use and easy to assemble.
This video clip demonstrates just some of the applications where 3d printing is being employed by dental labs and maxillo-facial labs to aid surgery planning. The Objet 3D printing dental system allows small and medium sized labs to take full advantage of the revolution in digital scanning with a fully automated and acccurate process that […]
The Objet 3D printing system allows small and medium sized labs to take full advantage of the revolution in digital scanning with a fully automated and acccurate process that reduces their cost-per-case, allows them to achieve higher output with less manpower and ultimately, compete with larger labs. This is another example of a market that […]
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 […]
It’s a question of time before a manufacturer comes forward and takes the lead on 3D Printed Musical Instruments. Which firm will take the lead? Maybe the firm who did 3D Printed Guitars? More on 3D Printed Guitars: http://3dprintingchannel.com/3d-printed-guitar-at-music-show-in-la-3d-printing-comes-to-rock-n-roll/ And here people say “I want my 3D Printed Guitar” http://3dprintingchannel.com/3d-printed-guitar-makes-music-at-namm-show-3d-printed-musical-instruments-are-here/
