#3DP365Project Showcases a Full Year of Daily 3D Printing: Interview with Jeffrey Wright

If you want to get good at something, you have to practice it. That’s true for writing as much as playing the piano as much as 3D printing. It was in this vein that the host of YouTube’s Print 3D Channel, Jeffrey Wright, undertook the ambitious project of challenging himself to print something new every […]

3D Technology Provides Musician with Skywalker Hand

Spoiler alert: Luke Skywalker loses his right hand during a duel with Darth Vader (who is also his father, which, in case you’ve lived under a rock, might also be a spoiler). Skywalker’s hand is later replaced by an amazing cybernetic hand, built to perform with incredible agility and looking exactly as his original hand […]

Mine Education Programs in Syria Utilize 3D Printed Models from 3D LifePrints

There have been a number of films in which landmines have played a role, from Tropic Thunder to Land of Mine, and a close call by a family who in 2015 unknowingly stumbled upon, and took pictures with, a mine on a beach in Wales, and yet, most of us wouldn’t recognize a landmine if we […]

Allegorithmic Offers Photorealistic 3D Print Previews with Substance Source

While the 3D model on your screen certainly provides insight into what your product will look like once it is fabricated, it doesn’t actually provide you with all the information you might need to make decisions about your print. For example, different materials and 3D printing processes leave different surface textures that will be visible […]

Making a 3D Printed Advancement in China's Toilet Revolution

Using the toilet, or whatever euphemism you prefer, is an essential component of life, but humans make an absolute ritual of it like no other species. There’s a long, and highly entertaining, history of our efforts to deal with bodily waste and yet it is a topic that is rarely considered appropriate for conversation. As […]

3D Printing Brings Modena Cathedral to Fingertips of Visually Impaired

3D printing has proved time and again to be an excellent resource for sharing visual material with people who cannot see it. Printing 3D versions of paintings, providing sculptural versions of ultrasound imagery, or simply creating replicas of objects too delicate to be touched themselves has repeatedly shown the technology to be a valuable tool […]

3D Printed Lens Converts Smartphone Into Microscope

I have to admit that I was not an early adopter of the smartphone. Nor was I enthusiastic when I finally caved and bought one (read: couldn’t find a phone with buttons). It has about 99 functions and I use, approximately, two: the one that lets me ignore incoming phone calls and the one that […]

Aether 1 3D Bioprinter Promises a Plethora of Printing Options for Artistic Expression

My father once paid $100 for a calculator. This was back in the mid-1970s and this calculator could perform the basic functions and print them as he entered them. It was only the size of the collected works of William Shakespeare and was considered to be an extravagantly advanced piece of machinery. Now, of course, […]

South African Architect Launches Design for Partially 3D Printed Concrete Sunglasses

Concrete is a material that has been both underestimated and overused in turn throughout its presence in design history. Its brand identity seems to be that of heavy, solid, and indestructible, and it was used to commit some horrible crimes against humanity, particularly during the unfortunate period in architectural history when brutalism was at its […]

We know they are up there. Sending signals, collecting information. Put into space by powerful entities, using the latest technology. I’m talking, of course, about satellites. But before you go wrapping your head in tinfoil to block out their signals, the powerful entities I’m speaking of are national space programs and the International Space Station. […]
