Is HP rewriting the rules for the 3D Printing industry? HP’s announcement of it’s Multi Jet Fusion 3D printer is clearly advancing 3d printing technology and changing the 3d printing industry. Watch as a 1/4 lb 3D printed chain link, created using new HP Multi Jet Fusion™ Technology, lifts a car straight off the ground! […]
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 […]
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.
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 […]
After seeing the printer in action, We have came away impressed. As many of you know the printer does not operate the same as other 3D printers. Most printers an extruder that will run on X,Y,Z axes, in the same typical way. However, the Orion Delta is a bit different. It has 3 vertical bars […]
If you were like me as a kid, you loved building all types of things with legos. Well the Dutch have taken it to a whole new level. The first 3d-printed house is currently underway. The canal houses that have made Amsterdam so iconic are undergoing an update. The Kamermaker 3d-printer, or room-builder is being […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
Energy has always been a major issue in the development of a nation. Sustainable energy is absolutely paramount to continued growth and expansion. 3d printing has already made major leaps in the energy field. Printed batteries are already a reality. As the renewable energy movement has gained more and more momentum, 3d printed solar panels […]
Perhaps you were one of the lucky kids in your neighborhood who had to get braces. There is nothing like sharp metal pieces constantly in your mouth to lacerate your lips and tongue then cause discomfort while trying to eat. Eventually that faithful day came where you finally got to have your braces removed! And […]
Sub $1000 3D printer prints in two colors, dual materials, integrated nozzle and more. 3D printing is getting even easier for consumers. Out of the box and plug-and-play. Keith Ozar shares the latest from 3D Systems new Cube 3D printer at CES 2014.
A $1 million dollar 3D printer creates tiny balls of pure titanium powder. You can have one made for you for $124. Read: A $1 Million 3D Printer Could Give You the Tiny Titanium Balls You’ve Always Wanted If you’re on a budget, try the $1500 DIY metal 3D printer… http://gigaom.com/2013/12/02/michigan-tech-scientists-build-a-1500-diy-metal-3d-printer/
The Makibox A6 HT is a new $300 3D printer available to regular consumers, set to compete with the recently funded on Kickstarter Buccaneer that goes for $347 ($247 for the first 350 buyers) plus shipping (which is as expensive as $100 for those not in the United States). Below, the makers of Buccaneer explain […]
Made in Space’s customized 3D printer, the first off-Earth manufacturing device scheduled for arrival at the International Space Station (ISS) in 2014, successfully completed a crucial milestone towards flight certification at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC) in Huntsville, Ala. Founded in 2010 with the goal of enabling in-space manufacturing, Made in Space set out […]
NASA recently hired a Silicon Valley company called Made In Space to create a “toaster-sized” 3D Printer custom-made for use by astronauts in the International Space Station (ISS). This 3D printer made for space will vastly reduce waste, stress, and probably boredom for astronauts in the ISS. From now on, any life-saving thing an astronaut […]
Imagine a world where any product you buy (as an end-consumer or as a business) can be 3D-printed on the spot and in your hands or your warehouse in hours, 3D-printed before your eyes. Oh, wait, that is our world! Does that mean consumers and orderers of things can say goodbye to shipping? Well, in […]
This chain was printed in a single print. It took about an hour, and it came out of the 3D Printer already linked! It shows how 3D Printing can really save time and money while producing quality products. This chain is plastic, but 3D Printers can do glass, metal, food, wood, even human tissue!
It’s no surprise that the 3D printing market is growing – to people who have never heard of it before, it sounds like magic! But where is it growing? It turns out that the cheaper, made-for-consumer end of the spectrum only accounts for 5% of this growing market. The rest is a mix of business-to-business […]
This device from AIO Robotics will be one big 3D printer, 3D scanner, 3D copier, and 3D fax-machine. It will begin the crowdfunding process through KickStarter next week on September 4th. The machine will even have a color touch screen! Now, what kind of money are we going to have to spend on this thing? […]
Printing with liquid metal is nothing new, but now there are more 3D printable metals being added into the mix. “3D printer supplier ExOne has added iron infiltrated with bronze, and bonded tungsten” to its list of usable materials with one of its 3D printer product lines. Currently, the available materials are “silica sand, ceramic […]
Organovo sells the Novogen MMX 3D printer that can print “structurally and functionally accurate bioprinted human tissue models,” in case you’re missing an organ. If you’re looking to learn more about bioprinting, help the bioprinting industry with research and development, or compete and know what you’re up against… A place to learn more would be […]
“Made in Space” tags aren’t too far off – NASA is planning to send a zero-gravity 3D printer to the International Space Station in 2014. Here comes “a future where space missions can be virtually self-sufficient.” That life-or-death missing washer can be printed at any astronaut’s whim. “Consumables” are also in store – astronauts can […]
