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.
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.
Dave & Buster's and HTC Vive are teaming up to bring VR headsets and multiplayer games to 114 locations across the US and Canada starting from next week. They're calling it the largest commercial VR arcade deployment.
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.
MyMiniFactory launched a new campaign at the end of last month which saw the release of seven official 3D printable figurines from everyone's favorite mobile game, Angry Birds Evolution. The campaign was in collaboration with Rovio.
If you live in a humid climate, you may find that many of your 3D prints aren't going to plan. The cause may be that your filament is damp. Don't despair, there are many ways to dry it out.
Nicholas Unis is a college-student developing a 3D printing sneaker brand called UnisBrands LLC. His target market is those who buy and trade footwear, but Unis' company will also make recycling for discount a possibility.
Elementary school student Julian Caraballo wanted to play violin and become part of his school's band, and he didn't let a birth defect on his right hand stop him. Instead, three students from Drexel University helped him achieve his dream with a 3D printed prosthetic device.
The Eindhoven University is partnering with various companies to 3D print a community of five houses. The concrete structures will be fully habitable, and will be available to residents next year.
Researchers from Newcastle University, UK, 3D printed human corneas for the first time. To do this, they mixed stem cells from a healthy donor cornea with a gel and collagen to create a printable bio-ink.
Researchers from Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) have developed a two-step polymerization process to fully recycle 3D printed thermosetting photopolymers.
3DPrinterOS, the cloud-based 3D printer management company, announced that it will be integrated into the Kodak Portrait 3D printer ecosystem. The partnership will help provide schools and enterprises with a way to manage files, track printers and materials, and enable printing from networked computers.
Researchers from MIT CSAIL and the Amsterdam Institute for Advanced Metropolitan Solutions are working on a project called the RoBoat which will free up road traffic in cities with a network of canals. The boats are autonomous and can even come together to create floating structures, such as bridges.
