Keep yourself up to date with the latest 3D printing news from all over the world.
Researchers from the University of Bath and the University of Bristol, UK, have developed a sustainable and cost-effective responsive ink for 4D printing. Inspired by the pine cone, it has a high cellulose content.
Josef Průša, CEO and founder of Prusa Research, has released new major firmware for the MK3/MK2.5 3D printer, a new Slic3r PE 1.41.0, and the Multi Material Upgrade 2.0 is shipping now.
BMW has outlined what it thinks the future car is: autonomous, all-electric and, to all intents and purposes a living-room-on-wheels. Oh, and it has a purty 3D printed grille.
Researchers from ETH Zurich, Switzerland have used an FDM 3D printer and liquid-crystal-polymers to create lightweight structures tough enough to rival purpose-built fiber-reinforced materials. The method is inspired by natural materials such as bone and spider's silk, relying upon the orientation of elements of the material at the molecular level for its strength.
MatterHackers has launched a new advanced, engineering-grade material to join its catalog. This material is called NylonG - a glass-fiber infused Nylon that provides high tensile strength and resistance.
Want to know what’s happening in the Additive Manufacturing and 3D printing industry? Here’s All3DP’s weekly report for professionals, presented by industry expert Sarah Goehrke.
Volkswagen has announced that it will use the new HP Metal Jet system to simplify and speed up production with metal 3D printing. Compared to other metal 3D printing methods, the company claims that this new process will improve productivity by up to fifty times.
Autodesk will strip away the Standard and Ultimate editions of its CAD/CAM design software Fusion 360 in October, replacing its old two-tier licensing model with a single offering that includes all generative and advanced design tools previously exclusive to the Ultimate edition.
A communication from 3D Hubs to hub operators spells the end times for the service’s original business model. From October, highly rated hubs must be registered as businesses and apply to become Manufacturing Partners; smaller operations are out.
Moritz Simon Geist uses sonic robots to compose robotic electronic music meaning his music relies on hardware, not software, to create beats. This October, his EP "The Material Turn" will debut.
In an attempt to standardize a measure for a 3D printer's abilities, Kickstarter and Autodesk have collaborated to create an open-source 3D printing quality test.
Noah Williamson has been making models for around four years. He's certainly mastered the craft as his latest design is a 3D printed Terminator skull with working eyes, jaw "and more".
Using a grant from the Nebraska Department of Economic Development, Tethon 3D aims to launch its first 3D printer. Developed specifically for specialty ceramic and metal resins the DLP machine is the first step in the establishing of a whole new hardware division from the company.
HP has just announced HP Metal Jet, an advanced metal additive manufacturing technology that will enable high-volume manufacturing of production-grade metal parts at a significantly lower cost than other 3D printing methods.
The furniture company Steelcase recently enlisted the help of Fast Radius and Carbon to design and 3D print multiple iterations of a custom arm cap for its award-winning SILQ office chair.
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.
