Research Team Takes Advantage of Common FFF 3D Printing Defect to 4D Print Plastic Self-Folding Objects

Research Team Takes Advantage of Common FFF 3D Printing Defect to 4D Print Plastic Self-Folding Objects

A lot of research has been undertaken regarding 3D printed self-folding structures and 3D printed items that can self-assemble, but a team from Carnegie Mellon University is changing things up in the field by using an inexpensive 3D printer to fabricate flat, self-folding items made from plastic. The researchers, from the university’s Human-Computer Interaction Institute (HCII), have […]

BB-8 Builder Scales Up Classic Lego Go-Kart to Make a 3D Printed Version That’s Five Times Bigger

While they weren’t my absolute favorite toy, I did enjoy playing and building things with LEGOs…there’s something very satisfying about hearing that ‘snap’ the plastic pieces make when you put them together. We often see 3D printing technology combined with LEGOs, from 3D printers built entirely out of LEGO bricks and 3D printed curved LEGOs […]

DIMA 3D Introduces New DIMAFIX 3D Printing Adhesive Spray to Avoid Warping and Sticking on Hot Print Beds

The moment a 3D print job finishes should be a sweet little victory in which you’re able to pluck a completed new object from the print bed and admire its exact dimensions. Sometimes, though, it just isn’t that easy; the material may have warped, slid out of place, or got stuck to the print bed. […]

Airwolf 3D Announces Wolfbite Premium Heatbed Adhesion Solution for ABS

Airwolf 3D Announces Wolfbite Premium Heatbed Adhesion Solution for ABS

There’s no doubt that 3D printers with large build volumes are generally preferred over the smaller machines. After all, who wouldn’t want the option to print objects as large as their heart desires? With that said, there is one issue that many individuals new to 3D printing usually do not realize until they start using […]
