Update 10/10/16: Taekyeom received some advice on his clay extruder and an engineer said, PVC pipe is not a safe material because PVC can crack, or even shatter. Cooper or stainless steel will be good material. DO NOT use PVC piping system for use in compressed air.   3D printed ceramics are a relatively less-talked-about […]

Some may say that when it comes to 3D printing, the art of pottery isn’t necessarily an area which needs the technology too urgently. After all there are already numerous tried-and-true tools available such as the pottery wheel, molds, etc. What these people are’t realizing is that the same basic argument could have been made in […]

And the evolution of the 3D printer continues… Imagine 3D printing on an even larger scale — in more remote areas. As the words 3D printing and sustainability keep popping up together in the same sentences, so do questions regarding what types of conditions 3D printers will be able to withstand out in the field, […]

With literally hundreds of different desktop 3D printers on the market today, it’s often hard to distinguish one from another. Despite the fierce competition within the market, many of the companies out there producing these machines are in fact just copying one another. Competition does lead to innovation; however, only a handful of companies out […]

Back in July, we broke a story about an Italian group called WASP, that had plans to 3D print homes in third world countries, using these countries’ native soils as print material. At the time, many people saw the idea as a good one, but the group had nothing to show, in order to prove that they […]

Art and 3D printing go together like peas and carrots, or Big Bird and Snuffleupagus, at least as of late. We have seen so many amazing ways in which artists have utilized the complexities of 3D printing to create spectacular pieces of work featuring elements impossible to achieve any other way. We have also seen artists […]
