All the latest 3D printing news from all over the world.
The 3D model marketplace MyMiniFactory is collaborating with Cartoon Network to give makers access to official designs of their favorite characters from the hit television series Adventure Time.
Purdue researchers have developed a process which enables them to 3D print extremely viscous materials. Due to this, they should be able to 3D print everything from cookie dough to biomedical implants.
Freshfiber is a European design agency which is now selling a 3D printed iPhone X case created using 3D printers in Nylon fiber material. The design is both stylish and functional.
Studio H is a multidisciplinary design studio which developed a 3D printing project which takes fruit and vegetables (thrown out due to their ugliness) and creates nutritious snacks which are interesting shapes.
MIT researchers have developed a technique which turns 3D scans into highly detailed, multi-material 3D prints. Utilizing voxel-based printing championed by the likes of Stratasys, the process could be beneficial for presurgical planning.
Architects Alisa Andrašek and Bruno Juričić have designed the "Cloud Pergola / The Architecture of Hospitality", a larger-than-life art display that some are considered the largest and most complex 3D printed structures in the world. It's currently on display at the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale.
WASP, the Italian 3D printer manufacturer, is donating and setting up a laboratory for 3D printing artificial limbs at the University of Damascus, Syria. Engineering graduate students will then print prosthetics for those in need.
Researchers at ETH Zurich and Caltech developed a 3D printed submarine which doesn't need fuel, electricity, propellant or even an engine. Instead, it exploits temperature changes in the water to complete complex movements.
In an effort to show how useful 3D printing can be when you only take the benefits of the technology and work around the negatives, researchers from Sandia National Laboratories have developed a 3D printed telescope in a third of the time and at a fifth of the traditional cost.
Allegorithmic, the 3D texturing software company, is releasing ready-t0-use materials to help make creating photorealistic 3D models of vehicles a whole lot easier. The materials will be released over the next five weeks.
3Doodler, maker of perhaps the best-known 3D printing pen, has just unveiled its new Create+ pen, plus a creativity fostering product line fresh for 2018. The pen promises easier loading and operation, while the product line includes Home Décor and DIY Project Kits.
