Keep yourself up to date with the latest 3D printing news from all over the world.
Victrex, the British-based supplier of high performance polymer solutions, has prepared new high performance PAEK powder and filament for SLS and FFF 3D printing.
During an oceanographic research cruise to a remote region of the Pacific Ocean, Harvard researchers used 3D printed soft robotic manipulators to investigate fragile deep-sea organisms.
Massachusetts 3D printing startup Formlabs has raised $15 million in its latest funding round. The investment brings the company's total funding up to $100 million and places it valuation in excess of $1 billion, making it one of the few hardware startups to become a unicorn.
Venturi 3D, the 3D printing startup, has recently launched a Kickstarter campaign for a fully assembled 3D printer which promises an enclosed 4 color, multi-material setup as well as 1,000 pre-installed, ready-to-print 3D models.
After a comprehensive EU tender process, Kamp C, the Belgian autonomous provincial company, has chosen Danish 3D Printhuset as its supplier for construction 3D printing.
Following a controversial court settlement that allowed Defense Distributed to share 3D printable gun blueprints online this week, a federal judge in Seattle has stepped in to issue a temporary restraining order and stop the release. But the pro-gun rights organization seems to have other plans...
Cast your camp cooking woes to the wind: students at ETH Zurich and Zurich University of the Arts have developed a windproof camp stove that will defeat even the most blustery of gales.
Researchers from the University of Saskatchewan, Canada, are 3D-bioprinting scaffolds to regrow damaged nerve cells.
Researchers at ETH Zurich have realized the first full-scale architectural project using 3D sand printing for its formwork. The result is a huge lightweight concrete "Smart Slab" at the DFAB House.
A new 3D printing facility has been opened at the Department of Orthopaedics at Kasturba Hospital in India. Already, two children's lives have been changed as they received prosthetic limbs.
In a holistic demonstration of its abilities, Materialise is creating a complete life-size replica of the Lier Mammoth. The new mammoth skeleton will go on display in the city of Lier, where the original was discovered, in October.
New York architecture and technology company AI SpaceFactory has been awarded by NASA for its MARS HAbitat (MARSHA) project. The concept includes using in-situ resource utilization to 3D print egg-shaped habitats on Mars that are optimized to deal with internal atmospheric pressure and structural stresses.
Chinese researchers from Zhejiang University in China have created an improved 3D nanofabrication method which uses ice and electron beam technology. The method cuts down on the time it takes to develop structures using standard e-beam lithography.
Amazon, the American electronic commerce giant, is now selling own-brand 3D printer filaments amongst the "essentials" of its AmazonBasics range.
Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in Israel researchers has published a study titled "Digital Audio Signature for 3D Printing Integrity", examining the use of "audio fingerprints" to help detect cyber-attacks on 3D printers.
The CIM UPC, the technological center of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, is launching a Master in Design and Engineering for Additive Manufacturing which is the first course of its kind in Spain to focus on 3D printing.
In August this year, the Walt Disney Animation Studio will debut its first VR short film called Cycles. It will be the headliner at the ACM SIGGRAPH conference in Vancouver.
