Software Developers Create BlocksCAD, CAD Software so Simple an 8-Year-Old can use it

One of the most difficult parts of 3-D printing is the designing. You have to be able to “see” the item you want to create conceptually and then use computer aided design software to make a viable model. New Kickstarter campaign BlocksCAD aims to eliminate the CAD-3D printing hurdle by making CAD so simple that […]

When most people see a guy kick another guy, they are either repulsed or entertained. Repulsed if the action involves somebody getting hurt by a bully. Entertained if the person acting savagely to another person is sanctioned by a governing body as is the case with mixed martial arts or boxing. One word that almost […]

We The Builders Turns to the Crowd to 3D Print an Enormous Ben Franklin Bust in 198 Pieces

Ben Franklin was an extraordinary man. He is known as one of the Founding Fathers of the United States, but he also is credited with discovering that lightening bolts are made of electricity, invented bifocals and worked as a postmaster and diplomat. Because he was so important, historically, to the development of the United States, Franklin […]

Droidles - 3D Printed Mini Robots Seek Funding On Indiegogo

In April 1975, Gary Dahl came up with an idea for the perfect pet: A rock. The advertising exec reasoned that it was the perfect pet because it didn’t take up much space or need to be fed, cleaned or bathed. Dahl’s product—a rock in a cardboard box—became wildly popular and made him a millionaire. […]

Old-world Shoe Craftsmanship Meets 3D Printing With Don't Run Beta's 3D Printed Shoes

Old-world Shoe Craftsmanship Meets 3D Printing With Don't Run Beta's 3D Printed Shoes

Before the days of industrialism and mass manufacturing, shoes were made by hand. The craftsmen who made these shoes paid attention to detail, taking their time to create quality products. Because of this history, consumers are put into two categories– the handmade or the mass-manufactured enthusiasts. Though manufacturing brought the price of shoes down (the average […]

Automotive Personalization Company Uses 3D Printing to Customize Luxury Vehicles

Most people think owning a 3D printer is like having your own factory in a box, and it is– 3D printing is extremely useful for mass production on the fly. However, 3D printing is also useful for making one-off, one-of-a-kind items. To prove it, one need not look further than Ai Design. Ai Design is a […]
