3D Printing of Metal that is 1000 times faster and 100 times lower cost
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.

It pumps blood using ventricles like those of a real heart, but it begins to degrade after just 3,000 beats.
Scientists have 3D-printed a soft, artificial heart made of silicone that beats almost like a human heart, putting us another step closer to replacing damaged human hearts without the need for a transplant.
How 3D printing, lasers and sugar add up to industrial scale graphene production
The carbon-based wonder material graphene is starting to make the leap from two dimensions to three. Back in February, researchers from Rice University created 3D graphene foam supported by carbon nanotubes, but it was difficult to make. Now, the team has developed a way to 3D print the material.
When we first took a look at the Divergent 3D Blade, world’s first 3D-printed supercar, we really weren’t all that sure we’d hear about it again. We have. Divergent 3D is back at the LA Auto Show, detailing the latest version of its car and 3D printing technology.
Imagine one day walking into a gorgeous structure like LA’s Walt Disney Concert Hall only to discover it was designed by a computer system and constructed by automated robotic arms. Ai Build, a London-based startup, aims to pave the way to 3D printing on large scales.
3D printing has come a long way since it was big news when a single printed part was certified for use in an aircraft … but there’s much more to come.
A recent study suggested that the number of unique species on Earth is 1 trillion. Granted, the vast majority of those are microbes, but still, Digital Life’s goal to make 3D scans of every kind of living animal is very ambitious.
Magnets are typically made via a costly injection molding process. Scientists, however, often just need a few of them in specific shapes. Thankfully for them, an Austrian team has developed a method of 3D printing magnets in any form desired.
