Medical Student Creates Patient-Specific 3D Printed Liver Model for Less Than $150

While researchers continue working hard to make readily available 3D printed organs a reality, we know that it likely won’t happen, at least not on a massively available and low-cost scale, for quite some time. However, 3D printing technology is often used in surgery these days, from surgical guides to implants to patient-specific medical models. Recently, a team developed […]

New Startup PYI Launches NEPTUNE 3D Printer on Indiegogo at a Very Deep, and Worrying, Discount

Over the years I’ve seen quite a few crowdfunding campaigns launch with a relatively low funding goal and a huge discount on the 3D printer, and they rarely end well. Unless the company already has outside funding and their crowdfunding efforts are for promotional purposes, there just doesn’t seem to be a lot of reason […]

Learn How to Make a Cool 3D Printed Lithophane for Mother's Day

A lithophane is an old art form that involves a 3D image etched or molded onto porcelain. This image can only be seen when the background is lit up; when the light changes behind the image, the image appears to change as well. In Europe, the first lithophanes appeared in England, France, Prussia, and Germany […]
