A team at Carnegie Mellon University, came up with design and its concept actually seems very familiar to crafters everywhere. Inspired by the techniques in handling a glue gun, they used a conventional fused deposition modeling (FDM), which is a form of 3D Printing, to fabricate these types of plastic hairs. You know when you […]
It all starts with making a virtual design of the object you want to create. This virtual design is made in a CAD (Computer Aided Design) file using a 3D modeling program (for the creation of a totally new object) or with the use of a 3D scanner (to copy an existing object). A 3D […]
A new study from consulting giant McKinsey says factories are the next fertile ground for the “Internet of things.” While the current trend toward automation and reduction of standard factory floor staff will continue, Kaas added that “any skill set which truly requires handling of data and analytics” will be highly in demand for manufacturers […]
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 […]
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. […]
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.
Hear someone in the trenches of the world of 3d printing talk about 3D Scanning and problems with 3d scanners.
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. […]
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.

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 […]
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.
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 […]
3D Printing Market Report categorizes the market based on various applications, technology, materials, and geography; it also covers the revenue foretold from 2013 to 2020. 3D Printing Market by Technology (SLA, SLS, EBM, FDM, EBM, LOM, 3DP), Materials (Polymers, Metal), Application (Aerospace, Automotive, Consumer, Healthcare, Government & Defense) & Geography (Americas, Europe, APAC & ROW) […]
If you read posts from this site enough, you may have already picked up why 3D printing is developing into such an important technology. ANYTHING can be custom fit for anybody. Glasses, cellphone cases, hearing aides, and the list goes on. Only recently has the material technology emerged to fully print an electronic with integrated […]
The old cliche that “no news is good news” has held true for the vast majority of stories the public is exposed to regarding the oil and gas industry. While the majority of the time, pipelines, refineries and wells function as planned, the stories that become newsworthy are unfortunately the major disasters. When dealing with […]
This promotional video gives a little introduction to 3D Printing and the world of additive manufacturing
GE has designated Dec. 3 as the official 3D Printing Day, and has also launched a new campaign to promote 3D printing gifts for Christmas.
Fripp Design and Research of the United Kingdom has been churning out as many as 150 prosthetic eyes per hour, thanks to 3D printing, which is multiple times faster than traditional production of prosthetic eyes that uses handpainting. The 3D-printed prosthetic eyes must go through a process before becoming a final product. First, the image […]
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 […]
3D Systems and Motorola Mobility LLC, a Google company, have entered into a multi-year development agreement to create a continuous high-speed 3D printing production platform and fulfillment system. Users will have the ability to customize their smartphone with functional and design choices. Read more here: Google Enters 3D Printing Arena
Coral reefs are disappearing at a rapid rate around the world as pollution, overfishing, coastal development, and global warming are all playing a significant part in this alarmingly fast decline. In the Persian Gulf, coastal and off shore developments have left the coral reef ecosystems severely damaged in the waters off of Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, […]
Cody and Tyler Kor, 20 and 22 respectively, plan to travel from coast to coast and back approximately two years from now in Urbee 2, the 3D-printed car their father Jim Kor and a team of engineers built. The Urbee has been a project since 1996, a project meant to create a low-energy car. They […]
