DediBot has created quite a buzz in Shanghai this week with the launch of something it’s calling the Fly Elephant. The prototype is no ordinary multi-rotor drone, but features an extruder that can be used for rapid prototyping of large structures.
CSAIL’s “Interactive Robogami” lets you design and 3-D print origami-inspired robots from 2-D designs.
Body organs such as kidneys, livers and hearts are incredibly complex tissues. Each is made up of many different cell types, plus other components that give the organs their structure and allow them to function as we need them to.
Below is the Anet A8 3D printer I built recently from a kit from China (via ebay.com) for well under $200. It prints just shy of 6 x 6 x 6 inches in all three dimensions. Incredible.

Game changing 3D printers for low cost metal parts
Technology developed at MIT could enable faster, cheaper, more adaptable building construction.
The 3D-printing of glass objects has been achieved before – we’ve seen it done by extruding molten glass, and even via a modern take on an ancient Egyptian technique. A new process, however, is claimed to produce complex glass items of a higher quality than has ever previously been possible.
Making 3-D printing as simple as printing on paper
Startup’s cloud-based system allows for project queuing by multiple users and automated part removal.
Not satisfied with the specs of off-the-shelf brushless DC motors? Looking to up the difficulty level on your next quadcopter build? Or perhaps you just define “DIY” as rigorously as poâ¦
Transparent plastic is nothing new. However, 3D prints are usually opaque or–at best–translucent. [Thomas Sanladerer] wanted to print something really transparent. He noticed that Colorâ¦
