With the new Ultimaker Alliances Program, users will be able to load preconfigured material profiles and 3D print settings from leading material manufacturers.
After studying the mechanisms of invertebrates in nature, U.S. Army researchers have developed 3D printed soft robotics that can traverse difficult landscapes and squeeze into crowded spaces.
Shapeways, the platform for product creation using 3D printing technologies, has just raised $30 million in a Series E funding round. The 3D printing creator community on Shapeways will benefit from tools to boost product creation, marketing, and brand development.
Researchers from USC Viterbi School of Engineering have developed 3D printed metamaterials that can switch between active control and passive states, enabling control of acoustic and optical waves.
3D printing speeds up development of warheads. It was only a matter of time before engineers would use 3D printing technologies to develop weapons.
3D printing may provide a sustainable solution to the current crisis of coral reef death globally. Population growth and the environmental burden that accompanies it has taken a serious toll on the Australian Great Barrier Reef and many other coral reefs over the last few years.
A new Kickstarter campaign has been launched for a new 3D printed flossing device called UFloss, which allows you to floss all of your teeth at the same time. This oral hygiene product will use an app to take impressions of the user's mouth, creating a fully custom-fitted solution for all.
Researchers from the Russian Academy of Sciences' Crystallography & Phonetics Scientific Research Center have developed a nanoparticle-based 3D printing method that is considerably faster and more accurate than traditional 3D printing technologies.
3D printed materials that change shape and color may be coming to market sooner than previously thought. A team of researchers at Dartmouth College presented a new smart ink which induces shape and color changes in 3D printed objects.
The Los Angeles startup Relativity Space has raised $35 million in its latest funding round led by Playground Global and other investors. The financing will enable the aerospace company to expand, while also paving the way for it to refine and test 3D printed rockets.
Engineers from Northwestern University have developed a new method to 3D print powerful lenses in a rapid manner. These lenses could be used to turn your iPhone into a microscope for high quality photos or on-the-spot disease diagnosis.
Hackrod is partnering with Siemens PLM Software to help accelerate the development of La Bandita, a self-designing speedster that will be produced with virtual reality, artificial intelligence, and 3D printing technology.
ArchForm provides orthodontists with a more cost-effective way to create retainers and teeth aligners for patients by tapping into the power of 3D printing.
