Researchers at CSIRO, the Australian science agency, have created hot-pink horseshoes that are custom made for each of a horse’s four hooves using lightweight titanium and 3D printing technology.
A dinosaur bone mystery created by a World War II bombing is resolved with 3D printing technology. Researchers have discovered that an unknown fossil in the Museum of Natural History in Berlin is a vertebrae belonging to a long-necked herbivore.
Artificial reefs created using 3D printing technology may be effective tools for restoring marine life in threatened ecosystems.
Digital artist Brian Begun, who has created visual effects for films like “The Amazing Spider Man” and “X-Men First Class,” has embarked on his next adventure: inventing a method for chocolate 3D printing.
A model of billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk’s futuristic Hyperloop system, a superfast transportation system based on pneumatic tubes, has been created using 3D printing. Designers at the 3D-printing company WhiteClouds built the desktop-size model in l
It’s not a city “of” hermit crabs, it’s a city that a hermit crab can carry around. Japanese artist Aki Inomata developed a 3D printed replacement shell for hermit crabs that includes a tiny model city on its back
The buzz surrounding recent advancements in additive manufacturing technology, or 3D printing as it is commonly called, is nearly as palpable as the objects being created. This emerging science has been touted as the next trillion-dollar industry, and for good reason. The implications of 3D printing are vast: from industrial to military, from commercial to personal, the applications are virtually endless.
