Thought3D, the Malta-based chemical and materials startup, is releasing new specialty mixes of its 3D printing adhesive Magigoo. Each product is specially engineered to handle advanced materials, such as Polypropylene, Polycarbonate, and Nylon.
Josef Pruša, the founder of Prusa Research, just released some surprising news: The company is launching an open-source resin 3D printer called the Original Prusa SL1. Let‘s dive into the specs of this new SLA 3D printer.
Researchers from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory have developed a means to detect in real time whether a metal 3D printed part will be of good quality. Using machine learning algorithms (called convolutional neural networks) and a live video feed the team can spot defects in a piece as it's printing.
Evolve Additive Solutions, a spin-off company from Stratasys, has announced the completion of an equity investment of $19 million led by LEGO Brand Group.
WASP, the Italian 3D printer manufacturer, has finished developing its 3D printer which can print on an architectural scale. They call it the "Infinity 3D printer" and it'll be presented next month in Massa Lombarda.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Researchers have developed a new tool to produce 3D printed "metamolds", which can be used to fabricate optimized silicone molds in a quick and cost-effective manner.
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.
