A Clean Bath From the University of Bath: 3D Printing the Newest Water Purification System

A Clean Bath From the University of Bath: 3D Printing the Newest Water Purification System

This year, I received a compost tumbler for my birthday. Perhaps that seems to you like an odd birthday present, but I was thrilled, because now I can turn my kitchen scraps into lovely organic fertilizer to make my garden soil healthy and help me grow more food (and more kitchen scraps, ultimately). It’s pretty […]

Stratasys 3D Printing Saves “Hundreds of Thousands of Dollars” in Development of First Electric Passenger Plane

They’re often referred to as “puddle-jumpers” – the small commuter aircraft that transport people to relatively nearby destinations a few hundred miles away, as opposed to the big jet airliners that travel across the country or to international locations. I’ve never particularly liked them, as they tend to be cramped, and every bit of turbulence […]

Elevator 3D Printing Ideal for R&D Tax Credits

Elevator 3D Printing Ideal for R&D Tax Credits

Elevators are essential for accessing a building. Other components, such as air conditioning, are important but not essential for basic use of the building. Without elevators, many workers cannot physically get to their offices. Elevator manufacturers are seeing more and more usage of 3D printing within their industries. Companies like the Otis Elevator Company and […]

3D Printer Put to Work in Developing Cancer-Measuring Transducer

According to the American Cancer Society, in 2017 alone, an estimated 1,688,780 new cancer cases will be diagnosed in the US, and I’m guessing that number is pretty high for other countries as well. So it’s always good to hear about new research and projects centered around early diagnosis and cancer treatment. Medical device contractor […]

Burton Snowboards Uses 3D Printing to Solve Longtime Snowboarding Conundrum

On the first official day of winter, it’s time to talk about winter sports! My favorite winter sport, personally, is doing squats in front of the Netflix, but I admire those who actually get outside and interact with the elements, turning the snow and the ice and the cold to their advantage. There’s a huge […]
