Less Than Two Weeks Left to Enter Stratasys’ Extreme Redesign 3D Printing Challenge

As of late, many of the “big boys” of 3D printing have seen their stocks take a precipitous plunge. The prevailing wisdom is that even the desktop 3D printing market is over saturated and we’ll be seeing many companies come and go. Someone remarked to me recently that these were the wild west days of […]

Local Motors’ Project [Redacted] Calling for the Creation of a Consumer Friendly 3D Printed Car

I just finished driving, with my family, from my home in North Carolina to Guadalajara, Mexico, about 15 hours south of the border. Our car has 233,000 miles on it and makes an impressive array of banging, clanking, whirring, squeaking, and chirping noises. When little things go wrong, we generally try to fix them ourselves. Unfortunately, […]

Take on FLM 3D Printing in the 2015 3D Printer Challenge from RepRap Central

Take on FLM 3D Printing in the 2015 3D Printer Challenge from RepRap Central

Back in 2005 when Dr. Adrian Bowyer, a lecturer in mechanical engineering at the University of Bath, created the RepRap, or Replicating Rapid Prototyper, the goal of his project was to create a self-replicating device, in this case a 3D printer, that would be so useful it could ensure its own evolution and distribution. Bowyer retired […]
