The future of 3D printing will undoubtedly play a major role in the development of robotic devices. The custom aspects that the technology provides make it a perfect fit for creating one-off robots that do exactly what a person needs.
Biologists have created chicken embryos with dinosaur-like faces by tinkering with the molecules that build the birds’ beaks.
I have frequently considered writing a book about all the extraordinary advances in manufacturing technology taking place on the shop floor today, but th…
It was only a matter of time before some of the larger software and tech companies entered the 3D printing space. That time seems to be now. Last week, during 3D Print Week in NYC, we reported on a presentation given by J Scott Schiller, Worldwide Business Director, Hewlett-Packard 3D Printing.
Thank the movers and shakers! The maker movement has a home in New Orleans, it’s called IDIYA, aworkspace where imagination can run rampant. “It’s taking your idea, but do it yourself to take it from concept to reality, says owner Domenic Giunta.
At the end of January, a series of patents filed by Carl Deckard in the 1990s for selective laser sintering (SLS) — a high-quality 3D-printing technology — expired. With this technology back in play, people started to see big things for 3D printing coming up fast on the horizon.
3D printing has an answer to scoliosis.
Miles high and good for the environment, the self-cleaning skyscraper design is thought to be the building of the future.
If a new bioprinter lives up to the hype, skin grafts taken from a person’s own body may become a thing of the past. The machine is reportedly capable of 3D-printing sheets of functional human skin for use in research … or for transplants.
German startup Next Dynamics has unveiled the NexD1, a multi-color, multi-material 3D printer for the home that can use a conductive resin to create custom electronic circuit boards.
