3D Printer »
3D printing is slowly becoming something that might actually stick around for a few years. We’ve seen so many 3D printing ideas popping up on a regular basis, but this one bakes the cake, get it? Alright that wasn’t funny at all.…Read More »
People have made some stupid things with 3D printers, while other people have made some pretty awesome things. The common link between those things are the 3D printers themselves, which don’t come very cheap. Some are cheaper than others, but most cost well over $1000.…Read More »
I don’t know about you, but I’m getting awfully tired of hearing about the latest 3D-printed guns. That’s why the news that NASA is funding research into a 3D printer with the goal of printing food is probably the best thing I’ve heard all week.…Read More »
In a surgical procedure earlier this week, a man was fitted with the first ever 3D-printed skull replacement. A whole 75 percent of his skull was replaced with the replica, which is made out of polyetherketoneketone. (Say that ten times fast.)
It is unclear why this particular man had 75% of his skull replaced.…Read More »
Makerbot announces 3D Digitizer that allows you to scan objects and print out replicas with 3D printer
Today, Makerbot unveiled their Digitizer Desktop 3D Scanner that it will sell along with its 3D printers.
What makes the scanner so cool is that you don’t actually need modeling or 3D printing skills to make use of it — just scan any object (up to 8 inches by 8 inches) and the Digitizer will give you a file that you can use to print out replicas with their 3D printers.…Read More »
3D printing doesn’t come cheap. You also need pre-designed objects or a modeling program if you’re going to design something yourself. But what if you could just directly draw things in the air, and they instantly came into existence?
That’s the idea behind 3Doodler, a Kickstart project that asked for $30,000 and is now sitting at over $400,000 — in less than a day.…Read More »
