3D Printing Used to Decorate Biodegradable KOFFINs that are Personalized for the Deceased

3D Printing Used to Decorate Biodegradable KOFFINs that are Personalized for the Deceased

While the way we live is vastly different from the way we did 100, 50, and even 20 years ago, the way we say goodbye to loved ones when they’ve passed away is still pretty much the same. Funerals are not easy for a number of reasons, but the last thing on anyone’s mind should […]

These 3D Printed Chocolates Are Inspired By Natural Wonders and Exotic Locales

Artist Ryan L. Foote works in an appealing medium – chocolate. His creations are inspired by architecture and the natural world, particularly natural minerals and geological formations, and they look almost too pretty to eat. Not eating them, however, would be to miss out on some fantastic flavors. For the last three years, Foote has […]

How 3D Printing Can Help Bring Photography Full Circle

Photography is an art form that has gone through a lot of changes in a few years. First there were digital cameras, which pushed aside traditional film and darkroom development, and then cameras on phones became so advanced that they began to supplant even digital cameras. But cameras haven’t become obsolete, as some people fear […]

Learn About Our Planet’s History with 3D Printed, Augmented Reality EARTH

The Earth has undergone innumerable changes over its long lifetime, with continents melding and breaking apart, species appearing and disappearing, climate changing and then changing again. Our planet’s history is a fascinating one, but the changes, for the most part, excepting mass extinctions, natural disasters and rapid climate change, have been so gradual that people […]

3D Printed NIRI Grips Make Mountain Biking Painless

3D Printed NIRI Grips Make Mountain Biking Painless

Riding a bike is fun, but it can be uncomfortable at times, especially when biking over rough terrain. When you hit a bump, a jolt is sent through your hands and arms – but with shock absorbing grips, that discomfort can be reduced. That’s what Riccardo Nicastro, a mechanical engineer, and Andrea Ricci, a medical […]

Feed Your 3D Printer with Recycled Filament Courtesy of Felfil

If you have a 3D printer, chances are you have a lot of useless plastic lying around. Failed prints, bits of broken-off filament, supports, the strings of material that are spit out whenever you change your filament. If you’re an environmentalist, especially, it’s painful to have to deal with that much plastic waste. Materials like […]

The Tungsten Carbide Nozzle Offers a Balance Between Wear Resistance and High Performance

The Tungsten Carbide Nozzle Offers a Balance Between Wear Resistance and High Performance

Your nozzle is the last and final step in your extrusion system, and maybe the most important part of your 3D printer. Plastic flows through the small orifice, thanks to the pressure generated by the extruder pinch system. This high flow can reach a pressure as high as 250 times the atmospheric pressure (25 MPa). […]

3D Printing Finishing Tool Hits the Market: Retouch3D is Finally Available

While life would be so much easier if all of our 3D prints came off the print bed looking sparkly and perfect (okay, maybe not sparkly), post-processing and finishing techniques are a necessary evil if you want good-looking prints – it’s often called the dirty little secret of 3D printing. Extrusion-based 3D printing processes can […]

Kickstarter Campaigns: It’s All About Personalization in 3D Printed Medicine and Jewelry

When I was growing up, I hated drinking milk, and so had to take these giant, brown, disgusting calcium pills every night with dinner. My mother used to call them ‘horse pills’ because of how large they were, and I can still remember the taste of their sickly sweet coating – if I’d had a […]
