Engineers at Duke University have used 3D printing to create an object that can shield against detection from microwave beams. [Read more] See the article here: 3D-print your own invisibility cloak, kind of natural hair loss treatment
Back in February, Skylar Tibbits revealed that he was working on a project called 4D printing . In essence, the technology would allow for 3D printed parts to assemble themselves into usable objects. It’s a concept straight out of futurism fiction, but various research facilities are making it into a reality
Bre Pettis, founder of 3D-printer manufacturer MakerBot, announced their first desktop 3D scanner, the Digitizer, at a SXSWi keynote today. Pettis was coy about availability or final design but instead was focused on making a splash at the event.
In 2009 at SXSW in Austin, the founders of MakerBot presented the prototype of our very first 3D Printer, the Cupcake CNC . Today, four years later, MakerBot CEO Bre Pettis took the stage for opening remarks, and did it again! In perfect MakerBot/SXSW fashion, Bre unveiled an early prototype of the newest addition to our 3D ecosystem, the MakerBot Digitizer Desktop 3D Scanner .
Two makers on opposite ends of the globe, Ivan Owen in Bellingham, Washington and Richard Van As in South Africa, teamed up to build a custom robotic hand and publish it on Thingiverse . The best part
Think about the meat on your plate and where it comes from. Consider the process from slaughter to table. Science at Modern Meadow has potentially devised a way to print a 3D model of meat that may be gracing your table in lieu of cow.
