3D Printed Building Initiative Just One Disaster Relief Project Highlighted at Earthquake Forum in China

3D Printed Building Initiative Just One Disaster Relief Project Highlighted at Earthquake Forum in China

3D printing has been used many times in relief efforts for natural disasters, such as earthquakes, and even preparation for and prevention of these disasters. Ten years ago in Sichuan, located in southwest China, over 80,000 people were killed, and millions displaced, when a massive earthquake struck the region. The epicenter was located 50 miles from […]

Virginia Tech Professors Provide Incredible Insight into the Future of 3D Printable Materials via Reddit AMA

There is little doubt that the single most important area within the 3D printing space is that of materials. Material science could potentially lead the way to thousands of new applications for additive manufacturing technology. It’s not the hardware that will drive things forward the most, but instead the materials that the hardware is able to […]

Researchers Develop Minibuilders, Tiny Robots Capable of 3D Printing Large Buildings

It is amazing how quickly the technologies around 3D printing have been developing over the last couple of years. Not only are we seeing Moore’s Law-like increases in the speeds of these prints, all the while prices are dropping substantially, but entirely new innovative approaches seem to emerge each day. For instance, we have already […]
