The market for dentistry in general has been constantly expanding. Especially here in the United States, people have come to value their teeth and their appearance more and more. It is estimated that by 2018, the orthodontic supply market alone will be worth 1.1 Billion. That is just for supplies (braces, retainers, molds). With the […]

The 3-D printing in Zero-G technology demonstration experiment will show that a 3-D printer can work normally in space. A 3-D printer extrudes streams of heated plastic, metal or other material, building layer on top of layer to create three-dimensional objects. Testing a 3-D printer on the space station is the first step towards establishing […]
At the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Tibbits and researchers from the firms Stratasys and Autodesk Inc were trying to come up with a way of describing objects they were creating on 3D printers… objects that not only could be printed, but thanks to geometric code, could also later change shape and transform on their own. […]
Design is a bit of a passion of mine. I find the artistry of it endlessly fascinating, and I love picking a design apart and wondering what thought processes went into creating it. The actual science of a lot of design is probably beyond me, I’m just not math guy, but I’ve picked up enough […]
Singapore’s first 3D printing festival held at NTU. Among the highlights: an exhibition of 3D-printed fashion pieces by award-winning fashion designer Melinda Looi and artworks by Italian designer and architect Niccolo Casas. The festival also marked the finale of two international 3D printing competitions, where four teams from Australia, China, Vietnam and Singapore successfully clinched […]
The 3d printing revolution came to medicine and is making people happy while scaring them at the same time! 3-D printing—the process of making a solid object of any shape from a digital model—has grown increasingly common in recent years, allowing doctors to craft customized devices like hearing aids, dental implants, and surgical instruments. For […]
The N12 bikini is the world’s first first ready-to-wear, completely 3D-printed article of clothing. All of the pieces, closures included, are made directly by 3D printing, and snap together without any sewing. Designed by Jenna Fizel and Mary Huang of Continuum Fashion, and made possible by Shapeways, N12 represents the beginning of what is possible […]
But while 3D printing holds promise for patients, it poses immense challenges for regulators, who must assess how to—or whether to—regulate the burgeoning sector. In a recent FDA Voice blog posting, FDA regulators noted that 3D-printed medical devices have already been used in FDA-cleared clinical interventions, and that it expects more devices to emerge in […]
Part 2 of the printing project using Autodesk and other tools for remote, collaborative 3d printing. It uses many 3D printing materials to get the job done. And uses people to do it from all over.
3D printing firm MakerBot is bringing a downloadable Sesame Street figurine to its digital store, the first such file for its newly licensed brand. Mr Snuffleupagus is currently the only Sesame Street character on offer, although the company intends to release more in the future. Some toy industry insiders fear 3D printing may have a […]
Here is an interesting project in 3d printing using Autodesk and other tools for remote, collaborative 3d printing. It uses many 3D printing materials to get the job done.
3d printed products on display at 3d printing show from 3dprintingindustry on Vimeo. The manufacturing technique should be very flexible, to boot. We already knew that 3D Systems would be making conductive ink (with the help of Carnegie Mellon University and X5 Systems) to print working parts, like antennas. However, it will also print parts […]
Scientists have created a robotic quad-copter that can extrude polyurethane foam while in flight. By targeting where that foam goes, it can build up simple structures, essentially becoming a flying 3D printer. The technology could have some very important applications.

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 […]
LIX THE SMALLEST 3D PRINTING PEN from LIX 3D PEN on Vimeo. Want to create what you imagine? How about writing and drawing without paper? Writing and drawing in the air is now possible with LIX, a 3D printing pen! This extraordinarily professional tool will chalenge your deepest creativity. Basically, Lix is a professional tool […]
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 […]
