TextileLab and Fabricademy: Interview with Anastasia Pistofidou on Sustainably 3D Printing Fashion

Fashion and sustainability are two words that feel as antonyms nowadays. The mass production of clothing and ethically doubtful methods of manufacture give one of the biggest economic forces one of the top rankings of the most polluting sectors. This creates a...

Flexible 3D Printing Filaments

Flexible 3D Printing Filaments

Flexible 3D printed materials have a lot to offer us. Rather than just make rigid things, flexible materials can let us make wearables, shoe soles, clothing and other things such as buttons. Flexible materials such as FlexPLA, Polycaprolactone and some Nylons have been used. Most popular on the desktop are TPUs (Thermoplastic polyurethane, which may […]

Keep an Ear on Your Core Temperature with 3D Printed Earables

The core temperature of the human body can reveal a number of things about a person’s health. The presence of a fever is the most obvious one, but changes in the core temperature can also indicate changes in metabolic function, fatigue, even insomnia and depression. No one walks around with a thermometer in their mouth […]

3D printing has made amazing things possible in the field of medicine, but obviously many of those things aren’t possible for the average maker to create at home. 3D printing may be democratizing manufacturing, but it’s not necessarily democratizing medicine, and that’s a good thing, for the most part; as much as I love making things […]

Steve Wood Discovers How to 3D Print Flexible & Rigid Materials Within Single Layers of a Print – Takes Aim Toward Better Prostheses

Steve Wood Discovers How to 3D Print Flexible & Rigid Materials Within Single Layers of a Print – Takes Aim Toward Better Prostheses

With the advent of various new materials which have suddenly become available within the desktop FFF/FDM 3D printing space, comes experimentation to the nth degree. It was only a few years ago that the thought of 3D printing materials with flexible properties was only a pipe dream. Today, not only do we have the option […]

The Most Realistic 3D Printed Prosthetic Hand Yet! – Steve Wood’s Flexy-Hand Filaflex Remix

The Most Realistic 3D Printed Prosthetic Hand Yet! – Steve Wood’s Flexy-Hand Filaflex Remix

When it comes to prosthetic hands and arms, 3D printing has been making a huge impact, especially when we talk about accessibility for children and teenagers. Children are at a disadvantage when it comes to being fit with a functional prosthesis, simply because their bones are still in the growing phase. This means that the […]

Flexy-Hand 2 – Filaflex Remix: 3D Printed Prosthetic Hand Looks and Moves Like the Real Thing

I couldn’t count how many different stories we have done on 3D printed prosthetic hands. Most of these stories have come our way from various e-NABLE members. e-NABLE is a group of over 3,000 volunteers who share ideas and designs on 3D printable prosthetic devices, and then connect with other individuals in need of these devices, in […]

3D Printing: A look at the market according to Google Trends

Way back in May, we did a story in which we used Google Trends to diagnose the growth rates within the 3D printing market. Since that time the market has certainly continued its rapid rate of growth. Here we are, seven months after our initial report, and I’ve decided to use Google Trends once again, […]

Unique 3D Printed Fuzzy Watches – Created by Recreus CEO

PLA and ABS are staples when it comes to 3D printing on desktop FDM based 3D printers. These are the two most commonly used materials which are used to create hard, rigid objects via 3D printing. However, relatively recently, there has been an increased use of flexible filaments. These flexible materials provide an additional option for […]

If you asked me a year ago, if we would be wearing 3D printed shoes anytime soon, I probably would have given you a good belly-laugh. I would have told you that consumer level 3D printing is for the creation of hard plastic objects, and there is no way a 3D printed shoe could even […]

When some people think about the future that they expected to see today, they imagine what they thought the future would be like back in the 80’s. For example, the movie Back to the Future featured many cool technologies which back then people likely believed would be in existence by 2014. Recreus’s Sneakerbot II 3D […]
