3D Printed Gnome Launches into the Stratosphere to Celebrate 100 Years of Polish Independence

My hometown mascot is the panther…or at least it’s the mascot for all of our sports teams. After each touchdown the high school football team scores, you’ll hear a panther snarl played over the loudspeakers that sounds (not at all silly) very ferocious, which is more than I can say about anything regarding my college mascot […]

Shark Skin, 3D Printing, and Aerodynamics

Shark Skin, 3D Printing, and Aerodynamics

Sharks have very unique skin – it gives the animals some help in rapidly propelling themselves through the water thanks to tiny, teeth-like scales called denticles. Four years ago, scientists from Harvard University scanned sections of shark skin, then developed a 3D printable material from the data that replicated, to the best of its ability, the properties […]
