Grafter Allows Users to Remix Entire Working Mechanisms into New Fully Functional 3D Printed Machines

Grafter Allows Users to Remix Entire Working Mechanisms into New Fully Functional 3D Printed Machines

A longstanding tradition among 3D printing enthusiasts is remixing each other’s models to make something new or better. Crowdsourcing isn’t an especially new way to develop an idea, but rarely is it quite as accepted and embraced as it is from the 3D model design community. Not only do most creators who upload 3D models […]

HPI Researchers Develop TrussFab 3D Software to Design Strong Structures Using Plastic Bottles and 3D Printed Truss Connectors

When I was in high school, I spent most Saturday nights in the gymnasium with my fellow band friends, playing in the pep band for the basketball games. Since we played during halftime, when most spectators get up to go buy more nachos and stretch their legs, the band members were given a break during […]

Metamaterials Create 3D Printed, PIN-Protected Door Lock at Hasso-Plattner Institute

Metamaterials Create 3D Printed, PIN-Protected Door Lock at Hasso-Plattner Institute

Just a few months ago, we told you about a really interesting metamaterials project developed by a team of researchers at Germany’s Hasso-Plattner Institute (HPI). The researchers created a 3D printed working door handle using metamaterials, without a single moving part inside and 3D printed in one piece. The handle itself is actually more 4D, because the metamaterials adapt […]

Hasso-Plattner Institute Researchers Create Metamaterial Door Latch as Example of 3D Printing Versatility

What I enjoy about 3D printing and so many of its innovations is that although we’ve certainly had a preview for decades of all sorts of magical looking futuristic inventions to come, with this new technology we truly do often see new products for real world applications today—and redesigns of age-old conveniences—that are unlike anything […]

Sustainable 3D Printing Methods Add to or Subtract from Existing Objects

Sustainable 3D Printing Methods Add to or Subtract from Existing Objects

Xiang ‘Anthony’ Cheng, along with colleagues at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, has a really great idea intended to move us from 3D printing so many objects from scratch. The ideas for this design tool, Encore, evolved from some initial questions: “What if we can 3D print directly onto an existing object? What if we can just put […]

Teleportation: Researchers Able to Relocate Objects Across Distances Via Destructive Scanning & 3D Printing

Teleportation: Researchers Able to Relocate Objects Across Distances Via Destructive Scanning & 3D Printing

Although 3D printing is only a blip on most intellectual property (IP) lawyers’ radars right now, I envision a time in the not too distant future where this all will change. It’s safe to guess that there are under one million 3D printers in homes and offices today. Considering the fact that we have a world […]
