Smoke, Spin, Gallop & Go in 3D Print with Autodesk's New ChronoFab Modeling Tool

Smoke, Spin, Gallop & Go in 3D Print with Autodesk's New ChronoFab Modeling Tool

Despite all its wonder and magic, 3D technology so far has only allowed us to produce models in static form. And while often our prints may be part of a larger moving mechanism later—even a vehicle, plane, or rocket—we generally are not able to indicate movement or any sort of progression within one piece. From […]

Autodesk Research: Update Legacy Devices Yourself via Easy 3D Modeling & 3D Printing with RetroFab

The key to a successful relationship is working together and offering good communication. That’s also often generally the antidote for what ails many a suffering human partnership, but what about all that time you spend in the kitchen hovering over and maybe even bickering with your older appliances—not to mention that one or two that were banished to […]

MIT Researchers Create 'Fab Forms' - Software That May Make 3D Modeling & Printing Easy for All

I must admit that, while I have been covering the 3D printing space for nearly two years now, and have had an interest in the technology long before that, when it comes to modeling designs that I can print at home on my 3D printer, I’m just an amateur. CAD software, although it lends itself […]

LLNL Teams with Autodesk for Next-Generation 3D Printed Helmet Project

LLNL Teams with Autodesk for Next-Generation 3D Printed Helmet Project

Teams of researchers from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) and Autodesk have signed an agreement which will see them begin work on exploring ways design software can be used to accelerate innovation for 3D printing of advanced materials. The 18-month-long Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) means the LLNL team will use software for generative design from […]
