Introducing the New and Improved Bondtech QR Extruder

There are many factors that go into customer satisfaction with a particular company. One is, obviously, the quality of the product. The willingness of the company to listen to customer feedback, however, is invaluable in terms of building a satisfied customer base, particularly with a newer organization. Martin Bondéus of Bondtech has been developing the Bondtech Extruder […]

CollideOScope Multi-Filament 3D Print Head Now on Kickstarter

CollideOScope Multi-Filament 3D Print Head Now on Kickstarter

As anyone who 3D prints knows, one of the limiting features is the ability to involve multiple filaments in a print job when its demanded. But, when this is possible, it significantly optimizes print quality and appearance, and so the idea is in high demand from certain sectors of the 3D printing space. It would […]

Orbital Composites to Make 3D Printing 100 Times Faster Using Carbon Fiber, Fiber Optics, Injection & More

Orbital Composites to Make 3D Printing 100 Times Faster Using Carbon Fiber, Fiber Optics, Injection & More

Every so often there comes along a startup which somehow remains under the radar for one reason or another. This is especially true within the 3D printing space. Last month we saw a company called Carbon3D gain large-scale international media attention for a 3D printing process they say will be 25-100 times faster than what […]

Steven Osborn Gives Lowdown on Lulzbot Extruder Hacking for Lulzbot Taz 4

We all know the drill when it comes to the best-laid plans. Often you might have a project in mind that’s clear cut, and all you can think about is getting to the finish line. Most of us though have experienced the grand — and not so welcome — surprise of becoming mired down in […]

Bondtech Extruder V2 is Unveiled with a 'Performance that Outclasses All Other Extruders'

Bondtech Extruder V2 is Unveiled with a 'Performance that Outclasses All Other Extruders'

When it comes to FFF-based 3D printers, no single mechanical piece of these machines is as important to print quality and consistency as that of the printer’s extruder. Extruders are the devices which pull the filament in, melt it to a precise temperature, and then extrude it onto the 3D printer’s bed, thus building an […]

3D-Proto Creates Unique Dual 'Parking' Extruder System for 3D Printers

3D-Proto Creates Unique Dual 'Parking' Extruder System for 3D Printers

We have seen an increasing popularity of dual extruder FFF/FDM 3D printers as of late. These machines provide many benefits over their single extruder counterparts, including the ability to print in multiple colors and/or materials during a continuous print job. This creates a simple method of building support material, especially when you use HIPS or PVA as […]

3D Printed Banana Treats Attempt to Reconfigure the Smoothie

Bananas have been referred to as “the perfect food.” Not only are they rich in nutrients but, in terms of form, they exemplify the perfect self-contained packaging and delivery systems. Who doesn’t enjoy peeling a banana and admiring its ingenious design? Not content to leave well enough alone, 3DigitalCooks, a website devoted to making and […]

Maizena 3D Creates an Air Powered Extruder: 3D Prints with corn starch mixture & has lots of potential

Without innovation, this world would be a pretty boring place. A lot of people look at 3D printing as an invention which has the potential to change the way we manufacture, self-fabricate, and perhaps even bring the third-world up to par with developed nations. However, we wouldn’t be here today without the innovative minds that have […]

Tytan 3D Set to Launch Indiegogo Campaign for Goliat Extruder & Continue Development of Incredible New 3D Printer

Tytan 3D Set to Launch Indiegogo Campaign for Goliat Extruder & Continue Development of Incredible New 3D Printer

Back in June, we reported on a new 3D printer that was able to print in materials that we had previously not heard of on 3D printers. The Tytan 3D Delta printer is able to extrude self hardening materials such as a flour and salt mixture, clay, paper pulp, foods, and adhesives such as caulk. This […]

D3D Kickstart Autolift: Retractable Hot Ends for High Performance

D3D Kickstart Autolift: Retractable Hot Ends for High Performance

Extruder and hot end manufacturer Dglass 3D, better known as D3D, is seeking funding for high performance, retractable hot ends that can increase print resolution, eliminate clogging issues and break the 100 micron barrier. Called the Autolift system, the new hot end nozzle lifts during filament retraction, which eliminates dragging and prevents any extra plastic […]

The C.E.M Crown Extruder - A 3D Printer Extruder Based on Concepts of a Microscope

Innovation in 3D printing is an ongoing process. There are always new ideas popping up, and new revelations taking place. However, one aspect of FDM 3D printers that hasn’t really changed all that much in the past couple of years, is that of the extruder mechanics. A German engineer, by the name of Cem Schnitzler, […]
