3D Meets 2D at HP as Multi Jet Fusion 3D Printing System Is Used to Manufacture New Parts for HP's 2D Inkjet Printers

3D Meets 2D at HP as Multi Jet Fusion 3D Printing System Is Used to Manufacture New Parts for HP's 2D Inkjet Printers

HP has been making major waves through its entrance into the 3D printing market, between laying off thousands of employees in 2015, unveiling its Multi Jet Fusion 3D printing system last year, and closing a factory in Ireland earlier this month to redirect company funds to 3D printing. With the first Multi Jet Fusion production units only recently shipped, it’s […]

Industry conferences are typically rife with big announcements on new machines, software, and business partnerships. It makes sense: there are usually hundreds, if not thousands, of people at these types of events, and the opportunities for showcasing your company, and its equipment, are many. The next big conference on the horizon, at least for us here […]

The majority of civilians will never know the horrors our fighting men and women face on the battlefield, far away from their loved ones. Once they finally get to come back, the struggle isn’t always over for veterans, as many return home suffering from PTSD or unable to find work. The US Department of Veterans […]

Formlabs Engineer Models, 3D Prints 1:25 Scale Model of New Apartment

My husband and I moved into our first house about eight years ago, on an abnormally rainy July weekend. Since everything got wet bringing it into the house, all of the furniture was placed on top of old sheets so it could dry without staining the floors. While we sat there, waiting for our tables […]

A Four-Step Guide for a Successful 3D Project

A Four-Step Guide for a Successful 3D Project

My first 3D printed project was a little bit disappointing. My new innovation looked rough and weak and the 3D model was not functioning well. Obviously, in 2006 we had fewer options for a 3D printed prototype, but the path was similar to what we have today. Therefore, my first experience was very similar to what I saw over the years with […]

Groove Out! Emboss Your Own Business Cards via 3D Printed Pocket Press

While the human spirit is generally quite self-possessed, we’re often reminded that the US and its citizens are supposed to be extra special in that way, as we fought so famously and so hard, and were founded on the premise of complete independence. That theme remains strong throughout the country, and not just on July 4th. While […]

New Cloud-Based 3D Design App uMake is Looking to Take on Autodesk

Traditionally CAD software was usually something that only design professionals and students learned to use. But in the last few years the rise of virtual reality and 3D printing technology has started to inspire a whole new generation of amateurs and hobbyist 3D designers. Unfortunately for them, most advanced CAD software is prohibitively expensive for […]

This Instructable Converts MRI Scans to 3D Printable CAD Models to Improve Cancer Treatment

We hear a lot here in 3D printing news about the great strides the technology has made in the medical field. I have personally written more than a handful of articles on how surgeons use 3D printed models to prepare for complicated surgeries. Sometimes these surgeries wouldn’t be possible if the doctor couldn’t access the […]
