Lenovo Lends a 3D Printed Helping Hand to Children in Need of Prosthetics

Multinational corporation Lenovo, manufacturer of technology such as computers and tablets, first got into 3D printing a few years ago with a chocolate 3D printer. Since then, the company has gotten more serious than confectionery (though chocolate is plenty serious). Rather than manufacturing its own 3D printers, however, Lenovo is combining its computers with outside […]

Rize CEO: How Do We Make 3D Printing Immersive in the Experience of Engineers?

For a new technology to truly take hold, a movement requires momentum; the greatest ideas will, without being put into use, wither away and gather dust. Additive manufacturing is gaining traction, with no time for dust to settle as innovation continues at a fast pace. Still, significant barriers to adoption are holding back the rates […]

Fontys University Students Experiment with Filament Extrusion and 3D Printing

Fontys University Students Experiment with Filament Extrusion and 3D Printing

One of the most promising aspects of 3D printing is the fact that additive manufacturing adds material and only uses what is necessary through building structures up (albeit with any required supports), whereas through traditional subtractive methodologies, greater amounts of raw materials are required in order to cut away what is required. While the sheer […]

LulzBot at CES 2018: Live 3D Printing Factory, Looking Ahead to a New Year and New 3D Printers

How many 3D printers could a 3D printer 3D print if a 3D printer could 3D print 3D printers? It’s less catchy than the more familiar woodchuck-based tongue twister, but the LulzBot team were having fun with this phraseology at CES 2018 last week (or at least humoring me while I had fun with it).
