Germany-based companies, 3D-Micromac AG, a provider of laser micromachining systems, and EOS GmbH, an e-Manufacturing group, have teamed up to form a new organization dubbed 3D MicroPrint GmbH. The new enterprise is developing a new micro laser sintering technology (MLS) for 3D printing tiny metal components to meet the demands of Makers and professionals alike
There are several questions always asked by the public about personal 3D printing whenever they are exposed to the technology. They want to know:
The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show is about so much more than lingerie. Over the years the annual event, which took place in Manhattan in mid-November and airs December 10, has grown into a mega-beast of elaborate outfits, wings, glitter, and musical performances
Most of us have gotten used to smartphones replacing long-established devices such as cameras and music players. Soon, however, they might be taking over the duties of something that is itself an emerging technology – the 3D scanner
From quirky hats and raspberry pi cases to pop art inspired designs, we have already organized a lot of design challenges. Each one revolves around a unique theme.
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.
Researchers at CSIRO, the Australian science agency, have created hot-pink horseshoes that are custom made for each of a horse’s four hooves using lightweight titanium and 3D printing technology.
Earlier this week our design of the week featured Icarus Had a Sister , by Masters & Munn. While we’re certain you’ll agree the work is astonishing, we also must tell the incredible story of how it came to be, as revealed during a long conversation at the close of the 2013 3D Printshow .
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
We’ve just finished this year’s London 3D Printshow, and while our feet still ache and our brains still explode, we must tell you about this astounding event.
