10 Highlights of the EnvisionTEC 3D-Bioplotter's Long Career

Last week, we took a look at what has become one of the most commonly used 3D bioprinters in the industry. The 3D-Bioplotter from EnvisionTEC has now been used in more than 200 peer-reviewed research studies. That’s an impressive accomplishment, and it’s definitely worth taking a look at the important work that has been done using […]

Celebrate World Chocolate Day with a 3D Printed Dessert!

Today, July 7th, is World Chocolate Day, and I wasn’t prepared – I have no chocolate. That’s remedied easily enough, as there are several grocery and drug stores within a few miles of my office. However, that would involve leaving and driving to one of those stores, and as I’m currently hard at work, I […]

Will We Be Eating 3D Printed Meat Next Year?

Not many people like to think much about where their meat actually comes from. I’m no vegan, or even vegetarian, but I admit that I get a little bit queasy at times if I’m reminded of what my bacon and hamburgers used to be, and how they got to my plate. I’m not sure, yet, […]

Pasta Gets Smart! Barilla Launches Second 3D Design Contest for 3D Printable Pasta Shapes

Back in my day, wagon wheels and vague dinosaur shapes were considered the height of sophisticated pasta shapes. I never would have imagined three-dimensional roses and cratered moons, but that’s what technology does – makes things cooler. It does a lot of other things, too, of course, like save lives, but you can’t deny that […]
