A free new study, published by German Bundesumweltamt, discusses the benefits and potential environmental and health challenges of 3D printing technologies.
When modeling in Blender, models can sometimes have too many polygons, gobbling computer memory and adding an undesirable level of complexity. In this article, we show you how to reduce polygons in Blender.
To avoid occasional printing errors, you're better off with a sensor that lets you know whenever your filament breaks, runs out, or gets tangled on the spool. Read on to learn how to make your own.
After a lengthy legal battle, Cody Wilson and his organization Defense Distributed have settled a lawsuit against the U.S. State Department that will allow them to put 3D printable gun models back online.
Oerlikon, the technology and engineering group, is working with Lufthansa Technik, a provider of maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) services, to establish robust and repeatable 3D printing processes for in the aircraft MRO industry.
Laser cutting is a common industrial process that has found its way into the hands of consumers. But most cutters only operate in two dimensions, which can be a bit boring unless you consider these unique functional designs.
MatterHackers currently has an unspecified number of factory refurbished Lulzbot Taz 6 3D printers going for $2,000 -- $500 off their regular "new" price. Not too shabby for 3D printers given the big green thumbs up from Lulzbot itself.
Following the recent release of the Lisa 2 PRO, the Polish 3D printer manufacturer Sinterit has now upgraded its flagship Sinterit Lisa SLS 3D printer to offer more reliability and a larger print area.
Looking for something to help with warping and layer adhesion but don't want to commit to a raft? Brims are a great alternative, providing many of the same benefits without using as much material. And they're so much easier to remove!
A lot can go wrong when finally filament starts to flow. A good way to keep those early issues away from your precious 3D print is to use a skirt. Keep reading to find out how what exactly a skirt is and why it can help!
Having problems with warping or bed adhesion? Consider to 3D print a raft. Learn what a 3D printing raft is, and when and how to use it.
Formlabs, the 3D printing technology developer and manufacturer, has developed a castable wax 3D printing resin for increased part strength and smoother surface finishes when printing complex parts.
Peopoly, creator of the exceedingly popular Moai SLA 3D printer kit, has just launched its first dedicated print preparation software. Called Asura, the program is currently in open beta for Windows users and lets you auto-generate supports for your prints.
