Jeremy Paxaman did a report on Addative manufacturing, on BBC News night, explaining a little bit about 3D Printing. The report was aired on the 29 of October of 2012.
On the 19th of October of 2012 there was a 3D print Show in London. We’ve composed a video for your entertainment, so you lazy folk don’t even have to read! Enjoy!
For sure the concept of 3D printing is no longer beyond our grasp, afterall it’s a technology that has been some years waiting in the wings. But what is marvelous is the chance to finally see the potential of the technology not just lighting up the imagination but actually setting it on fire and stampeding [...]
In less then a decade the standard 3D printer might only be a prototype of future 3D printing. Thanks to Formlabs 3D printer with there new revolutionary idea of using liquid instead of the current plastic solution, there printer is able to form more realistic and detailed structure’s. Unlike the other 3D printers, Formlabs are [...]
We’ve all been there, you’ve just bought a new piece of furniture and as your assembling it you can’t find a main piece, so after spending your time looking for the bit with out success you end up having to take it back to the manufacturer to get a new one. What a waste of [...]
Recently Kickstarter release an article about the the new 3D printer fabricated by FORMLABS. The form 1 is a new type of 3D printer that incorporates stereolithography and a new liquid solution that forms the structure. Stereolithography (SL) is the gold standard for accuracy and resolution in the 3D printing world, reaching layer thickness’s and feature sizes that are worlds ahead [...]
SpiderFab is the name of the new project NASA is working on. Adapting a 3D printer to build components for satellites or bases in the space could be a great challenge, but, as they say, very useful. The scientists tell us that, using this technology, NASA will reduce enormously the costs of space missions; Now [...]
In the production of films, stop-motion is one of the oldest technique. But while some years ago was difficult to create expressive characters, now it’s easier, you can just use a 3D printer, and all your problem will be solved. An example could be the Laika’s Paranorman, a film in which the producer decided to [...]
Wired Magazine in the USA has run a feature on the launch of the new MakerBot Replicator 2. We have a rather poor scan in PDF format available. PDF of the 3D Printer article in Wired Magazine
Do you imagine using a printer to create organs or tissue for the human body? It sounds impossible. But a recent research showed that in the future it could be possible. The Vienna university of technology has developed a new method that can be used to grow biological tissue or to create micro sensor. [...]
