The company announced that it has reached its goal to ensure… Continue reading HP Promises To Make 100% Circular, Forest-Positive Printing
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
Do you still think pottery is a dirty business? Well, think again. Meet the CERAMBOT, the most affordable ceramic 3D printer being Kickstarted. Ceramic has become a popular material in the 3D printing world. It’s heat resistant, food safe, relatively strong, and has a look and feel that’s just more pleasant than plastics and polymers.… Continue reading CERAMBOT, the ceramic 3D printer
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
If you have an HP printer and you cannot print with third-party ink cartridges, you may be entitled to $50 in compensation. Provided you live in Australia. HP has given the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) a court-enforceable undertaking to compensate customers with non-HP ink cartridges.
A collaboration between housing non-profit New Story and construction technology firm Icon aims to use 3D printing technology to house the homeless. While it’s early days yet, they hope to produce low-cost 3D-printed homes in El Salvador by late 2019. New Story and Icon debuted an initial proof-of-concept model of a house that measures just… Continue reading 3D Printing Project To Revolutionize Low-Cost Construction [+VIDEO]
Three-dimensional images that we can see from all directions are the next step up from holograms. To move us toward that goal, researchers from Brigham Young University have developed a new method to create such a 3D display. The approach is called a free-space volumetric display and uses a technique called optical trapping. As reported… Continue reading Images 3D Printed With Light [VIDEO]
