For the 13th edition of Designer’s Days , Le Lab by Legrand reached out to Victoria Wilmotte to imagine the future of its products.
The campus of Washington State University in Southeast Washington’s agricultural region looks like a typical land-grant university. The connected mix of art-deco, modern, and post-modern buildings that collectively house the College of Engineering and Architecture hide a strange and incredible secret: that the researchers inside are close to making human-compatible ceramic bone grafts and custom-made prostheses and implants. In short, they’re building cyborgs in Palouse
Although the Army’s interest in rapid prototyping comes as no surprise to those who have been around 3D printing for a while, it’s still interesting to take a look at how the military is leveraging this technology. David McNally got the opportunity to take a look inside the Aberdeen Proving Ground research lab, and his report is pretty interesting. Of the many amazing things that are happening at this lab, one idea had me intrigued
In Afghanistan the US Army has deployed the first of several USD$2.8M mobile prototyping labs. These container-sized labs house 3D printers and CNC machines capable of rapidly producing spare or replacement parts that would otherwise take months to order and be delivered using conventional approaches.
Editor's note: I'm deeply thankful to Emma and her mom for enthusiastically sharing their story, and to Tariq Rahman and Whitney Sample for the work they do every day. When Emma was 2, she wanted to play with blocks.

Sculpteo supports the Ultimaker Battle happening right now with m.e.u.h.|lab , fablab of Roubaix (North of France) and ESA- n In 2 days, 2 teams of 5 students will build an Ultimaker each and 3D print an object. Winners will receive vouchers for 3D printing with Sculpteo . A chance to test out our innovative materials and 3D print from our professionals printers.
