Diabase Engineering Introduces X60, the Softest 3D Printing Material on the Market

Diabase Engineering Introduces X60, the Softest 3D Printing Material on the Market

Diabase Engineering is best known for the Flexion Extruder, which has transformed many an average, low-cost 3D printer into a multi-material, industrial-grade machine. One of the key appeals of the Flexion, as its name suggests, is its ability to print with flexible filament, a task that not many lower-end 3D printers are up to. As […]

3D Brooklyn Teams with Better Future Factory to Sell Refil Recycled 3D Printer Filament in the US

For all of the myriad of uses for 3D printing, benefiting vastly different industries, it has been somewhat lacking in one particular area. 3D printing isn’t as sustainable as it could or perhaps should be. Admittedly, 3D printing can aid in reducing shipping by making products locally, allowing companies and designers to make products as needed, […]

Airwolf 3D Continues Innovation Streak with HydroFill Water Soluble Support Material

Airwolf 3D has been on the scene for several years, most recently with their release of a new build plate adhesive. There has been an ongoing struggle to understand the best ways to get materials to adhere to the build plate during printing so that they don’t warp and shift. Unfortunately, we have seen some problems […]

Floreon Announces Competition to 3D Print Spectacles for Footballer Ian Wright

Ian Wright’s football story is one of a boy with humble beginnings making good after a long and difficult struggle. The third son of Jamaican immigrants, he was brought up by his mother and could never quite crystalize his dream of becoming a professional footballer. He had largely given up on the idea when a stint […]

Cx5 Sculptable Filament Finding Success on Kickstarter

One of the frustrations of 3D printing are the little errors that crop up during a print. Whether they be drips or stringing, pockmarks or elephant feet, layer shifting or poor layer adhesion, it sometimes feels like the 3D printing gods are set against you. While there are some tools now for post processing prints, there […]

OmniDynamics Seeks Funding for Strooder Desktop Filament Maker

One of the most amazing things about 3D printing is that it is a disruptive technology. It is an alternative to mass manufacturing, allowing designers, inventors and makers the opportunity to create products locally without a large investment. Sure, there are the costs of the printer itself and the filament, but it’s a nascent technology […]

The Virtual Foundry Releases Filamet 3D Printing Filament That Turns FDM 3D Printers into Metal 3D Printers

More industries than ever before are purchasing metal 3D printers and using them to manufacture high-quality prototypes, test parts and end-run parts with geometries that could only be manufactured using a 3D printer. The average cost of a metal 3D printer will typically range from several hundred thousand dollars to more than a million dollars, pricing […]

3D Printlife ENVIRO Eco-Friendly ABS and PLA-PHA Strike a Chord with Major Resellers

There is a duality in desktop 3D printing: if you want to have an eco-friendly material you need to use PLA, which is fragile and brittle. If you want to use ABS you have to consider that it is derived from hydrocarbons and thus not so good for the planet. Los Angeles-based 3D Printlife has […]

Making an Amazing Guitar with Polymaker PolyMax Advanced 3D Printing Filament

Several maker musicians have already built themselves some pretty great 3D printed guitars, but any that are truly playable were made using SLS (Selective Laser Sintering) or SLA (Stereolithography) 3D printers. Guitars made using a standard FDM 3D printer would probably be far too delicate for proper use, and would most likely lack the sturdy […]

Odin Manufacturing Launches 3D Printer Filament Storage & Dryer Units on Kickstarter

If you were to jot down a list of reasons that a 3D print could fail, that list would include things like cheap filaments, jams in the extruder, a poorly sliced model, an uncalibrated printing bed or even an unaccounted for cool breeze throwing off the temperature. But a likely reason for a lot of failures […]

Doesn’t it seem as though it was just several months ago that we were limited to 3D printing objects in just two materials–PLA or ABS? It certainly does to me! Just a couple years ago, FFF/FDM-based desktop 3D printing had appeared to hit a road block, while other technologies like stereolithography (SLA) seemed to be […]
