3d printing is a rapidly evolving technology that has already brought the world excitement, controversy, and a bright red Weinermobile . Now, a European product designer named Ralf Holleis has come along and printed himself a beautiful, intricately styled track bike.
The home 3D printing revolution has picked up pace in recent times with printers such as the MakiBox and Buccaneer making 3D printing increasingly more affordable. Although not as cheap as the homemade LEGObot , the QU-BD One Up has taken the title as the world’s cheapest production-ready 3D printer with a price tag of under US$200..
By: Antoine Davis When I tell my friends I work at a 3D Printing company the reactions are usually always the same. “Oh what cool things have you printed!?” and “could you print me something?!” I have noticed in these conversations, that immediately after that, most people come to a major stumbling block
Things are getting a little futuristic in Manchester, England, where police recently arrested a man for allegedly 3D printing gun parts. They seized said parts, but after the images made their way online, the internet fired back with a startling revelation
We already published a post about NASA’s big plans to integrate 3D printing in the International Space Station. Made in Space is the startup behind the project, and together with the NASA, they published a video about 3D printing in zero-gravity conditions. The 3D printing experience in Zero-Gravity was a success, and Made in Space also announced that the machine can survive the rigors of launch and function in a microgravity environment
Andrew Mazzotta from 3DHacker has released another video, this time of him unboxing the Series 1 personal 3D printer from Type A Machines. This printer is known for its relatively large build volume very high resolution
Some people, usually those just introduced to 3D printing, often believe the technology is capable of printing “anything”, in the manner of a Star Trek replicator. That, of course, is not the case. There are many limitations in the technology and indeed within each type of 3D printing process.
BotObjects , an intriguing 3D printing outfit that builds real, full-color additive prints out of multiple colored plastic filaments, has announced that they will offer free printers to select high schools in the United States and the UK. High Schools can register at the BotObjects website in late August
At some point, the world of 3D printing had to fold back onto itself, leaving us all slack-jawed and wondering when 3D printers will start printing things for printers themselves?
