Canon Launches Initiative to Show Print Remains an Influential Medium Print has long been a powerful medium to inspire action, from promoting social change to influencing purchasing decisions. Canon U.S.A. hold a survey finding out that nearly half of Americans would feel sad in a world without print.
Did you know that 3D printing has entered the industry of aerospace manufacturing, too? World’s largest aerospace firms are extensively use 3D printers to speed up the manufacturing process, save money and make aircraft that burn less fuel. But more importantly, 3D printers are capable of producing parts that are superior to those made using… Continue reading 3D Printing Conquers Aerospace Industry
Dentistry industry has been greatly influenced by 3D printing. Over the course of the past decade, the dental industry has been revolutionized by 3D printing technology. Several different applications of 3D printing have been developed, from fixing broken teeth to making flossing easier. Dentists have found numerous ways to bring 3D printing into their routines,… Continue reading How Dentists Use 3D Printing In Their Work
A scientist from Barcelona Giuseppe Scionti has brought both haute cousine and 3D-printing together by creating an alternative to meat that can be printed out. Scionti has spent three years developing his creation, and his “steaks” are made entirely of plants, and manage the difficult feat of imitating the texture of meat.
Polish 3D printer manufacturer Zortrax has released the Zortrax Inkspire, the company’s first desktop DLP 3D printer which marks the company’s entrance into the the resin 3D printing market. The DLP technology uses a digital projector screen to flash a single image of each layer across the entire platform at once. Because the projector is… Continue reading Zortrax Inkspire 3D-Printer
More and more companies are putting 3D-printing to their benefit. Volkwagen recently has announced it’s about to use metal printing technology to produce some parts, like gear knobs and custom tailgate lettering, in their cars. These plans are to be realized within two to three years.
Today we can 3D-print virtually anything from any material: a house out of concrete, a human cornea out of a bio-ink… you name it. But one of the most common construction material, metal, has not been tamed yet. There’s no mass market 3D printer that can create objects out of metal just as easily as… Continue reading Metal Casting Back Then And Metal Printing Now
We are living in a wonderful world where another day brings you another way of printing. Scientists have found a way to print with sound. The new technology will help printers exert more precise control over the shape and viscosity of ink droplets.
Human corneas have successfully been 3D printed for the first time by scientists at Newcastle University in England. By mixing stem cells from a healthy donor cornea with alginate, a gel derived from seaweed, and collagen, researchers managed to create a “bio-ink” solution that can be printed.
Doctors need MRI and CT scans to further evaluate, and diagnose, medical conditions. These scans produce high-resolution images in a series of slices which show the details of structures in a person’s body and can later be 3D printed into a detailed physical model. Unfortunately, these images are so detailed that the part that needs… Continue reading Bitmap-Based 3D Printing For Hi-Def Anatomical Models
