This 3D Printed Impeller Sucks…And That’s a Good Thing!

This 3D Printed Impeller Sucks…And That’s a Good Thing!

An impeller is a rotor designed to modify the pressure and flow of a fluid, specifically to create a ‘sucking’ force. It is the counterpart to the more familiar propeller which creates a thrust force in liquid, commonly seen in the engines that move ships forward. In other words, the impeller is used to create a […]

High School Student 3D Prints Voice-Controlled Robotic Arm

Irvine High School student Nilay Mehta knew that he wanted to work with prosthetics when he started his science fair project. When he began researching the field, he was struck by how costly prosthetic limbs are, so he set out to create a high-functioning limb for as little cost as possible. Using a combination of […]

Students Apply Cutting Edge Technology to 3D Print Local History

Students Apply Cutting Edge Technology to 3D Print Local History

Bergen is the second most highly populated city in Norway, having been surpassed by the capital Oslo only in the 1830s. It was founded in the 11th century most likely as a trading post and is, therefore, rich with history. It occupied a highly important place in the history of Norway as the site of battles, […]

Seventh Grader Designs & 3D Prints a Penmanship Training Device

Seventh Grader Designs & 3D Prints a Penmanship Training Device

Christian Herman is a rather precocious seventh-grader in Florida who used 3D design and printing to create a device which attaches to a pencil to aid people with their penmanship. With the help of Scott Johnson, an instructional design engineer at Florida Polytechnic University, Herman built a device he calls the Light-Up Pencil Grip. It’s […]

More Than One Way to Skin a Leg — 3D Printed Covers for Prostheses Coming From KSU Students

More Than One Way to Skin a Leg — 3D Printed Covers for Prostheses Coming From KSU Students

A group of 27 second-year students at Kansas State University’s Interior Architecture and Product Design Studio are heavily involved in a project to design 3D printed prosthetic “skins” which will ultimately be fitted over the existing prostheses used by six students at the school. Dustin Headley, an associate professor and leader of the IAPD studio […]

NY Students Win PTC Design Award for Leonidas, A 3D Printed Robot

When I was growing up, I had the privilege of spending great amounts of time in the summer with my grandparents. My grandfather, who had dedicated his life to science, and I suspect rarely had his head out of the books as a kid, was both always tinkering with one complicated science project or another, […]

Custom 3D Printed Foosball Players Make Tech Project Fun

Custom 3D Printed Foosball Players Make Tech Project Fun

UK tech educational group Black Country Atelier (BCA) took their 3D design and printing know-how and had some fun with their Maker Project of the Week, 3D printed footballers. The footballers aren’t life-size; they’re customized players designed to fit a foosball table, the tabletop game that features rods with paddles in the shape of players. The rods […]

A Drone Lifeguard With a 3D Printed Mounting Platform — The Ryptide

A Drone Lifeguard With a 3D Printed Mounting Platform — The Ryptide

They call it Project Ryptide, and it’s an accessory setup for aerial drones capable of delivering an automatically-inflating life preserver to a swimmer in distress in mere seconds. The project came about as the result of a group of high school students from Connecticut sought to provide real-time help to anyone pulled into open water or in […]
