3D Printing Basics New series! Hackaday had complained that getting started with 3D printing was still too hard, so over the next weeks I’ll be releasing a 10-part series that covers all the knowledge about 3D printing that is too easily taken for granted.
Adopting additive manufacturing (AM) often means reconsidering the materials that a manufacturer is comfortable with. Manufacturers can use the pivot to AM as an opportunity to investigate new material options that may be more sustainable than conventional feedstock, such as plastic filaments made from plants or metal powders made from recycled scrap. The pivot also […]
Topics covered include: • A 3d printed cast that can stop muscles from getting weak while the bone is healing • Augmented robotic arms, and human extensions • A charity that lets people 3d print prosthetic arms for kids • The different ways Titanium is being used to replace different body parts • Examples of […]
Nasa set out a 3D printed habitat challenge HASSELL and structure engineer Eckersley O’Callaghan created an autonomous modular robot to create 3D printed homes using material from Mars. The bots will have more than one role that includes battery storage, scouting, logistics, excavation, and 3D printing.
Here is a quick video explaining the basics of 3D Printing
Design and architecture agency AI SpaceFactory won 500,000 U.S. dollars from NASA after successfully 3D printing a home for astronauts living on the Moon or Mars. The agency made a scale building using materials that can be found on Mars. AI SpaceFactory plans to recycle their construction and make “the first ever space-tech eco-habitat on […]
Check out this case study with 3DprinterOS and Texas A&M University. 3DPrinterOS has been working with Texas A&M University a few years by taking a fresh approach to their 3D printing program. They implemented our 3D Printing Management Solution that allows to manage users, files and machines from a single platform. A variety of set-ups […]
Whether you’re thinking about buying your first 3D Printer, learning to use your new 3D Printer or you’ve been at this for a while, in the next several minutes I’m going to teach you thirteen things about 3D Printing that took me a little while to really understand and hopefully they’ll save you some time.
3D Printing for Development and Education USM students became the teachers Tuesday in Portland, training public school teachers on ways to incorporate 3D printing technology into their classrooms.
With an eye toward developing a pipeline of manufacturing talent for the future, GE has given 3D printers to 16 Wisconsin schools. It helps GE, it helps 3D Printing and more importantly, it’s a great thing for kids to learn!
This Japanese anime is a fun way to see how they feel about 3D Printing Japanese cartoons. The publisher of this took our 3D Printing Elearning course and proceeded to get into the 3D printing business!
Ge the largest online course which focusses on the business of 3D Printing

He started by making a cardboard first prototype with a found lens from 1890. After getting a lot of ” NO” from many french 3D printers…he met Arnault Coulet, CEO of a French 3D printing agency called FABULOUS. His team and he designed the 3D prototype and printed the lens. Luckyly for us, he saw […]
What do artificial intelligence and prostheses have in common? The software uses artificial intelligence algorithm to customize 3D printable prostheses and orthoses to fit the individual wearers’ needs. It allows creating individual supportive devices based on a 3D scan of the limb and does it in minutes rather than hours. Janis Jatnieks believes that involving […]
What Do You Get When You Mix Underwater Shipwrecks And 3D Printing? “3DP is a great tool for archaeology to understand topography and also in replicating artifacts which can then be used in the classroom to aid or encourage learning,” agrees Michael Petch, co-author of 3D Printing: Rise of the Third Industrial Revolution. “The most […]
