Take a look at these 3D Printed objects and see for yourself how 3D Printing is changing the world!
Believers herald 3D Printing as a revolutionary and disruptive technology, but how will these printers truly affect our society? Beyond an initial novelty, 3D Printing could have a game-changing impact on consumer culture, copyright and patent law, and even the very concept of scarcity on which our economy is based. From at-home repairs to new […]
Did you know that in Windows you can print directly from SOLIDWORKS to 3D printers, similar to how you would print a document to your office printer? Take an up close look as CADD Edge Application Engineer, Dave Bazinet, previews the print bed and the model’s location within the print bed. Watch and learn how […]
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 […]
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 […]
