Keep yourself up to date with the latest 3D printing news from all over the world.
Researchers appear to have found a simpler method for 3D printing metal by using bulk metallic glasses (BMGs). The process is still theoretical, but the researchers believe it may soon become commercially usable.
OctoPrint, the open-source control software for 3D printers, has issued a reminder to its users to invest time to properly secure internal services and configure settings after a report from the Internet Storm Center (ISC) which shows the dangers of unsecured interfaces.
Desktop Metal has launched the new Studio System +, an upgraded metal 3D printing system that will offer higher resolution and allow users to print small metal parts with finer details.
Carbon has launched MPU 100, the first-ever medical-grade material for its Digital Light Synthesis machines. It offers a combination of mechanical strength, biocompatibility, and sterilizability.
Ahead of a public showing at IMTS, MakerGear unveils the MakerGear Ultra One - a tank of a printer taking aim at industrial-quality printing.
Open Source 3D printer manufacturer BCN3D has just lifted the lid on the Sigma R19 and Sigmax R19 3D printers. New features include custom hotends by E3D, Bondtech extruders, filament runout detection and other across the board improvements.
Industrial designer Nicole Hone has created a collection of 'Hydrophytes', which are futuristic, aquatic plants that are made with multi-material 4D printing technology.
Surgeons at the University Hospital Basel in Switzerland are cutting down on operating times for head, neck, face and jaw surgeries by 33% thanks to 3D printed surgical guides.
KW Heritage, a restoration service from engineering firm KW Special Projects, used 3D scanning and 3D printing to restore the engine cover of a rare Alfa Romeo Tipo 33/3 racing car, which will be on display at the Goodwood Revival motor racing festival.
A British engineer, programmer, and maker recently took to YouTube to display his upcycling creation. Using 3D printing and electronics, Robin Hartley turned an empty Cadbury's hot chocolate tin into a portable speaker.
Not content with offering a competitively priced array of desktop 3D printers for home use, it would appear that US electronics giant Monoprice is readying a batch of education and business-minded printers, too.
A new crowdfunding campaign for an interactive and home-printable 3D Zoetrope has smashed its funding goal. The project, called 4-Mation, uses 3D objects and strobe lights to create impressive, moving visuals. There are four different animations available to back on Kickstarter.
After getting us giddy with the prospect of some exciting new fork in the LulzBot hardware trail, the company has put paid to our speculation with a full "reveal" this last weekend. No new resin printer. Just a rather cool tool head we already knew about.
Dazz 3D, a Chinese technology company has launched a Kickstarter campaign for the Dazz 3D LCD 3D printer. Promising high-quality resin 3D printing, a safe air purification system and an automatic refilling system, the campaign has already smashed its funding goal of $30,000 with over $100,000 raised.
Engineers from MIT developed a new technique called the direct-write colloidal assembly process. It can build centimeter-high crystals made from billions of individual colloids. They did this by uniting the principles of 3D printing and self-assembly.
Attempting to circumvent a recent court order blocking 3D printable gun blueprints from being shared online, Defense Distributed is now selling the files to customers in states that have not imposed a ban.
Material scientists from the US Army Research Laboratory are using an atom probe to explore the structure of metal and ceramic specimens at the atomic-level and creating 3D models of the results.
