Diyouware Initiative Invents New Resin Deposition Modeling 3D Printing Method

Diyouware Initiative Invents New Resin Deposition Modeling 3D Printing Method

It’s been a couple of years since we’ve heard from the Diyouware initiative, which was started by two brothers in Madrid with a passion for robotics, design, electronics, software development, and mechatronics. The two were inspired by the RepRap 3D printer revolution, and built DiyouPCB, an open source, 3D printed PCB 3D printer, in early […]

Popularity of FDM

Popularity of FDM

Since the early 2000s, fused deposition modeling (FDM)—more formally referred to as material extrusion by ASTM and ISO—has been the most popular additive manufacturing and 3D printing process worldwide. In 2003, Stratasys sold nearly as many FDM machines as all other AM machines combined, according to our research for Wohlers Report 2004. In 2006, Stratasys […]

Professor of Microfluidics Discusses 3D Printing Benefits and Possible Future Improvements with Ultimaker

Professor of Microfluidics Discusses 3D Printing Benefits and Possible Future Improvements with Ultimaker

A lab-on-a-chip is pretty self-explanatory: it’s a miniature laboratory that is printed onto a microchip. But for the past 25 years, Professor David Barrow of Cardiff University in Wales has studied microfluidics, which is basically a small-scale plumbing system on a chip. Both of these tiny objects, which Professor Barrow has experience with, prove once again that bigger is […]

3D Printing and Biomimetic Research Combine to Create Lightweight Architecture Prototype: Trabeculae Pavilion

A little over a year ago, Italian artist Francesco Pacelli, once an academic researcher and educator with Politecnico di Milano‘s LAB+ 3D printing lab, was testing the limitations and abilities of WASP’s Delta 3D printers by creating ceramic designs. Obviously, the university appreciates the WASP technology, because just a few days ago, it was announced that the […]
