University Professors Design Educational Hybrid Video/Board Game Using HP Sprout

University Professors Design Educational Hybrid Video/Board Game Using HP Sprout

HP announced its user-friendly Sprout 3D Capture Stage scanner back in 2015, and the Sprout Pro was released about a year ago. While HP was busy unveiling the Sprout Pro G2 at CES 2017 this week, two creative and thoughtful educators from Central Michigan University (CMU) have been busy using the platform to reinvent how ecological management is […]

3D Printing Helps Reimagine Relationships with Industry

3D Printing Helps Reimagine Relationships with Industry

Before the rise of mass industry, the urban centers were desirable locations for shop keeps and wealthy citizens who could afford to be, and greatly desired to be, near the cultural life of the city. In the 19th century, with the industrial revolution and the introduction of train travel, those who could moved farther away […]

Ultimaker's Olsson Block Enables Architectural Firm to 3D Print a City in No Time

One of the really neat things about 3D printing, in my opinion, is how its development has been such a collaborative effort. The technology has advanced so rapidly largely because we live in the era of hacking and crowdsourcing. The RepRap project is an obvious example, and we frequently cover stories of individuals coming up with […]

5th Graders Utilize 3D Printing to Create Their Own Custom Cities

One of the most inspirational aspects of covering the 3D printing space is the fact that we constantly have the opportunity to promote the use of the technology in schools around the world. There is nothing more pleasing to me than reporting on a successful case study in which 3D printing proved to be of […]

Oslo, Norway Makes 3D Printing an Integral Part of Future Urban Planning with 3D Printed Model of City

Oslo, Norway Makes 3D Printing an Integral Part of Future Urban Planning with 3D Printed Model of City

If you visit the Agency for Planning and Building Services in Oslo, you’ll see the results of the agency’s monumental effort to create a complex, small-scale model of the Norwegian city. The 3D printed model replaces a previous, decade-old, conventionally produced 3D model that needed to be updated. However, updating the earlier model would have […]

Japanese Company Proposes 'Ocean Spiral,' Underwater Cities to be 3D Printed

Japanese Company Proposes 'Ocean Spiral,' Underwater Cities to be 3D Printed

It sounds like something that would be the setting for an epic Kevin Costner-type film, but instead the idea of an underwater city is being proposed by a Japanese company as a concept for the future construction of sustainable cities. The spherical city looks very much like a robotic jellyfish with a long, coiling tentacle […]
