Christmas of the Future Includes 3D Printed Food, Virtual Christmas Trees, and Social Media for Pets

As Christmas approaches, many people are getting ready for the same traditions they celebrate every year. It’s a holiday of tradition, after all – whether that means the fairly universal traditions like decorating a Christmas tree or the personal traditions like always having ham and cheesy potatoes for dinner every year. Our traditions are likely […]

Startup Looks to 3D Printing to Make Taller, More Effective Wind Turbines

Startup Looks to 3D Printing to Make Taller, More Effective Wind Turbines

The average height of wind turbines in the United States is about 80 meters. The taller a wind turbine is, the more valuable and productive it is, as taller turbines can capture faster winds aloft. There’s a reason they tend to max out at about 80 meters, however – the taller they are, the larger […]

New 3D Printed Organ Models Don't Just Look Like Real Organs, They Feel and React Like Them Too

New 3D Printed Organ Models Don't Just Look Like Real Organs, They Feel and React Like Them Too

There is plenty of evidence to show that 3D printed anatomical models greatly improve the outcomes of medical procedures. When surgeons can plan and practice an operation on a perfect 3D printed replica of a patient’s organ, surgeries tend to take less time, as does recovery. But there are still limitations to the 3D printed […]

3ERP Takes ISO 9001 Certification Seriously in Rapid Prototyping Services

If you’re acquainted with the manufacturing industry – or really any professional industry – you’re probably at least marginally familiar with ISO certification. That familiarity may only extend to knowing that ISO refers to the International Organization for Standardization, however. When a company says that it’s ISO 9001 certified, what does that really mean? In […]

3D Printed Internet of Things Devices Communicate Without Electronics

You’ve probably heard of the Internet of Things, in which smart devices communicate with each other to make our lives better in various ways. Generally, complex electronics are involved, so it seems impossible to have WiFi-connected devices that involve no electronics at all – just plastic. But researchers at the University of Washington have created […]

MIT Researchers' 3D Printed "Living Tattoo" Lights Up with Responsive Cells

There are a lot of creative things you can do with tattoos, particularly the temporary stick-on kind. You can get temporary tattoos made from metallic ink, glitter, and even crystals – but engineers at MIT may be the first to have come up with a “living tattoo” that lights up. The engineers used a 3D printing […]

Dutch Designers 3D Print the Future from Algae

Eric Klarenbeek and Maartje Dros don’t just want the world to be carbon neutral, they want it to be carbon negative. Instead of just curbing carbon dioxide emissions, the Dutch designers believe, we should be removing the carbon dioxide we’ve already pumped into the atmosphere. Carbon negative is a big goal, but Klarenbeek and Dros […]

San Draw Responds to Training Needs with New 3D Printed Medical Simulator

Medical students have to train for a wide variety of procedures, many of them delicate and precise. Obviously, it’s critical that they know exactly how to perform such procedures before attempting them on human patients, which means that they need good, accurate simulation tools. Most procedures can’t exactly be practiced on living humans, so hospitals […]
