In a recent press release, Lomiko Metal, a Vancouver based firm, announced its intention to create a laboratory dedicated to the development of “graphene-enhanced” 3D printing materials.
The University of Liverpool has developed a different approach to 3D printed skin, which had been previously accomplished. The problem with prior techniques is the appearance: manufactured skin was entirely uniform, without the bumps, wrinkles, freckles and curiosities of actual human skin.
That’s the hook gear for a Singer 111w155, an industrial sewing machine much-beloved by (and cloned for) those who produce upholstery and heavy-duty sewn goods. It was originally produced in the 1950s and virtually built to last forever, so a well-tuned machine like this will run you over $500. I bought mine for $5 , because that hook gear was worn out; the owner deemed it junk and was planning to give it to a scrap metal guy
There are a great many exhibits among the booths at this year’s 3D Printshow in London , but one caught our eye. In spite of perhaps the least adorned booth in the entire hall, African Fossils provides something we’ve been seeking for quite some time: 3D models of our ancient ancestors.
By: Brie Sagona The greatest part about working for a 3D printing service company is all the hands-on experience with the technology that I encounter daily. Most recently, our friends at Clon Data Capture in the city of Laguna Hills invited me to come take a tour of their new flagship store and partake in
MakerBot ® Desktop 3D Printers empower innovators to turn their ideas into physical objects every day, but it’s not often that those creations reach outer space. That day is coming. When the James Webb Space Telescope launches in 2018, it will carry parts made with the help of a MakerBot ® Replicator ® 2 Desktop 3D Printer .
We believe it’s huge and growing, but it’s always good to evidence of this, which we noticed in a comment thread on io9, where they had asked the intriguing question, “what do you want to 3D print?”
Some of our recent design education has come from instructors who have offered us exclusive inside looks at summer intensives: Francis Bitonti’s “New Skins: Computational Design for Fashion” Workshop at Pratt DAHRC and the Brian Anderson’s “Immediate Objects: Explorations in 3D Printing” at the SAIC. This time around, we have a guest post by a student, Vivian Chan of Simon Fraser University’s School of Interactive Arts + Technology . Under the tutelage of instructor Russell Taylor, she and a dozen of her classmates spent six weeks in Europe this summer, traveling halfway around the world from Vancouver to the Netherlands to film and research designers in a unique and unforgettable Field School program.
