3D Printing Technology is For the Birds: Abyssinian Ground Hornbill Gets 3D Printed Prosthetic Beak

3D Printing Technology is For the Birds: Abyssinian Ground Hornbill Gets 3D Printed Prosthetic Beak

While iterative 3D printing technology is helpful when making 3D printed prosthetics for humans, it’s also been used to give many of our feathered friends a new lease on life. Birds use their beaks to clean their feathers, defend themselves, build nests, and eat, so the consequences can be difficult, and even devastating, for a […]

Hauke Scheer's New 3D Printed Action Figure Can Move Better Than Many Humans

3D printed figurines are fun to make and to have around, but for the most part, they don’t do much – they just kind of stand or sit there stiffly. Unless, of course, they’re made by Hauke Scheer, a designer whose work we have admired in the past. Scheer creates incredible articulated action figures that […]

How Sony & PlayStation are Utilizing 3D Printing to Accurately Portray In-Game Characters

The development of in-game characters and props is significantly more difficult than how it is often perceived. Although virtual models can be created with ideas or concepts sketched on a piece of paper as 2D references, for high quality and standard games such as Uncharted, which sold 8.7 million copies worldwide in 2016, the development […]

3D Printing in Art and Architecture: Miles Gertler Explores the Familiar and Unfamiliar

Form and function are two important aspects of any design, whether for art or architecture (or anything in between). When bringing that design into the third dimension, 3D printing helps to ensure that the two do not have to be mutually exclusive, as sometimes function can follow form, or vice versa — or the two […]

Dental 3D Printing Makes a Strong Showing at LMT Lab Day in Chicago

There are a lot of 3D printing-specific trade shows going on pretty much all the time, but the technology has been making a strong presence even at trade shows that outwardly have nothing to do with 3D printing – like auto shows or medical conferences, for example. LMT (Lab Management Today) was formed in 1984 as […]

MIT Researchers Use 3D Printing to Create Soft, Nearly Invisible Hydrogel Robots

MIT Researchers Use 3D Printing to Create Soft, Nearly Invisible Hydrogel Robots

Soft robotics are becoming increasingly common as researchers and engineers develop new ways to fabricate robots from materials that range from flexible plastics to silicones. A team of engineers at MIT, however, has created a soft robot that, in a sense, is close to human in its composition, as it’s made almost entirely of water. The transparent […]

Stanford University's Paper or 3D Printed Whirligigs Can Diagnose Malaria for Under a Dollar

One of the simplest and oldest toys known to man is the whirligig. You may have played with one yourself without knowing its name, if you’ve ever threaded a button or other disk onto a piece of string and pulled it tight to watch the disk spin. I know I have; it’s fascinating to watch […]
