The bad news: just as much of the world is starting to get excited about the prospects of 3D printing , science is moving on to the world of 4D. The good news: in the future, you might not have to assemble that Ikea chair yourself.
We’ve discovered a lengthy interview with 3D artist and research Neri Oxman of the MIT Media Lab, whose astounding explorations into radical structures using 3D printing have been featured here previously. In the 2200 word interview, published in Material Connexion, Oxman explains much of her 3D printing and artistic philosophy
3D printing enthusiasts will get a lot of laser-like precision for their buck from Formlabs. The Formlabs Form 1 3D desktop printer is in full production, and that is big news for tinkerers and creative tech types. That’s because the printer employs a process that is significantly different than that used by other 3D printers on the market today.
After experiencing a roller coaster pre-production period, the folks over at FormLabs have announced that the Form 1 3D-printer is entering into full production. The “large majority” of Kickstarter orders set for delivery by the end of April. They’ve purchased enough components to build out over 1,000 Form 1 3D printers
3D printing has come a long way in the past 30 years, and a Dutch architect, Janjaap Ruijssenaars, wants to push the technology even further. Working in collaboration with sculptor Rinus Roelofs, Ruijssenaars is creating a world’s first: A 3D-printed building
It’s always fascinating to learn which posts were the most frequently read among the hundreds we posted during the past year. They’re typically not necessarily the top stories, but nevertheless they provide some insight into readers’ interests
3D printing has changed the nature of model making. From the processes employed to the materials used, 3D printing and additive manufacturing enable the creation of complex, highly accurate scale models complete down to the finest details – and all from the click of a button. Model makers that have traditionally required accurate scale and detail models we’ve all heard about: Design engineers (who require scale models to test fit, form and function for a part or product befor… Follow this link: New Generation of Modeling Takes Shape with 3D Printing http://www.cheapcarinsuranceinohio.com
FormLabs, the same folks that are bringing the Form 1 3D printer to market, has had a roller coaster year. After launching on Kickstarter with a huge reception — backers pledged almost $3 million during the course of the campaign — the company ran into an obstacle when 3D Systems Corp
