Thermwood Corporation Introduces LSAM: Large Scale Additive Manufacturing with a CNC Twist

Thermwood Corporation Introduces LSAM: Large Scale Additive Manufacturing with a CNC Twist

Indiana-based Thermwood Corporation is known for their CNC routers – in fact, they’re the oldest CNC machine manufacturing company in business, having developed the first commercial CNC tool control back in the 1970s. That doesn’t mean, however, that they’re snobby about subtractive manufacturing. Last year, Thermwood began exploring the additive manufacturing realm with their double gantry […]

Soon-to-Be-Released Aether 1 3D Printer Can Do Absolutely Everything

Soon-to-Be-Released Aether 1 3D Printer Can Do Absolutely Everything

Most 3D printers are made for a particular function. There are printers for metal, printers for plastic, food printers, bioprinters, but for the most part, they’re each limited to one material type. There are exceptions, of course. ZMorph and their multi-extruder 3D printer/CNC miller/laser cutter come immediately to mind, but now there’s a new player […]

It Turns Out That 3D Printing Can Even Be Used to Make the Perfect Spring

I really don’t know if I could find a dryer subject to write about than industrial springs. At least a subject that sounded dryer, because when I actually started to read about them it was obvious that there is a lot more to a spring than most people would imagine. First of all, I’m not […]

Virginia Man Creates a 3-In-1 3D Printer, Laser Engraver, & CNC Machine For Under $250

When it comes to 3D printers, they can be used to make all sorts of objects, via additive manufacturing. However, many ‘makers’ (people who utilize their creative abilities to ‘make’ things) use more than just 3D printers when trying to visualize their ideas in creating tangible objects. CNC machining, as well as laser engravers are […]
