When Cody Wilson, the world’s most well-known 3D-printing gunsmith, unveiled his coveted, entirely 3D-printed handgun Monday, he didn’t — unlike a careful magician — keep his tricks to himself That has never been his intention or his goal. His goal has always been to share his disruptive achievements with the world. That’s why he uploaded the designs and blueprints for his handgun to the Internet.
Danish 3D printing company Create It Real has opened up a survey specifically for 3D printer enthusiasts. They’re gathering information for, well, we don’t actually know. But surveys are always useful and we’re hoping to publish the results after they’re collated by Create It Real
You’ve heard of MakerBot, Cubify and Solidoodle. And if someone finds out you’re into ID and asks “Hey, what do one of those 3D printers go for?” you can spit out a ballpark figure, and maybe some basic stats. But there are tons of other 3D printers available on the consumer market, and plenty of questions you might not have the answers handy to: Which can I most easily buy if I’m in India, the Netherlands, or Taiwan?
We are happy to annouce the launch of our own forum. http://forum.3dprintingsystems.com/ In the future we will be using the forum to answer common questions, and as a place for you to share your ideas.
Once you get into 3D printing you quickly realize that every 3D model is not the same. Some are easily 3D printed, some can successfully 3D print only using certain processes and others are simply pathological and can’t be successfully 3D printed.
For most of us, 3D printing is endlessly interesting, but also somewhat impenetrable. It’s something we’d love to get involved in, but there are just so many questions that need to be answered
Despite being around for over 20 years, 3D printers have still not received the mainstream press the technology deserves.
Are you in need of supplies for your 3D printer? Do you live in Switzerland? If you answered yes to both questions, you’ll be pleased to learn that there is now a 3D printing supplies operation located in Switzerland: Fabberworld
