Honeycomb structures: from infill to bicycle tires

Honeycomb structures: from infill to bicycle tires

Although famously known for producing honey, bees are also master wax producers and beekeepers like me will (given the chance) wax lyrical about how ingenious these tiny engineers are in creating their homes. Each waxy cell is a perfect hexagon and it is this repeating pattern of six-sided figures that is seen in a cross-section […]

No Bones About It: Materialise Has Taken On a Mammoth 3D Printed Reconstruction Project

Materialise is in the middle of an SLA 3D printing project of epic proportions…one might even call it a mammoth job. The Belgium-based company is creating a life-size, 3D printed reconstruction of the first mammoth skeleton ever displayed in Western Europe. Fittingly, Materialise is using its extra-large Mammoth 3D printers – the only machines it […]

3D Printed Drone Saves Thousands of Crops per Year

3D Printed Drone Saves Thousands of Crops per Year

The corn borer is a pest that attacks maize stalks, causing the loss of thousands of crops every year. Rather than drenching said crops with chemicals, a company called Soleon is taking a natural approach – the SoleonAgro drone, which distributes trichogramma wasp eggs. The trichogramma wasp eats corn borers, offering an eco-friendly pest control […]

What Does BASF’s Investment in Materialise Mean for the 3D Printing Industry?

What Does BASF’s Investment in Materialise Mean for the 3D Printing Industry?

Earlier on today BASF invested $25 million into Materialise. We speculated that perhaps BASF wanted to conquer the eyewear market because the potential of this market is so vast. We won’t sure what this investment means for both firms for many years. What is sure is that this partnership will have far-reaching consequences for 3D […]

Materialise and BASF Future Leaders in Customized 3D Printed Eyewear

Materialise and BASF Future Leaders in Customized 3D Printed Eyewear

The global eyewear market is a $180 billion market dominated by one company Luxottica. If we look at today’s deal whereby BASF is investing $25 million in Materialise we could see this as a deal to industrialize 3D printing for many products. But, given Materialise’s lead in eyewear, is this perhaps the entire play for […]

Mayo Clinic Finds 3D Printing Essential Moving Medicine Forward for Complex Surgeries

The Mayo Clinic is probably the single most famous medical facility in the world.

Using Patient-Specific 3D Printed Surgical Guides for Total Knee Replacement

Using Patient-Specific 3D Printed Surgical Guides for Total Knee Replacement

While surgery has always, ultimately, been about the patient, it hasn’t always been patient-centered. Historically, patients have not had an easy time of understanding exactly what their surgery entails and have often been treated as if they were ancillary to the surgical problem presented. This can’t all be blamed on uncaring medical staff, as most […]

3D Printed Implants Help Reconstruct Man’s Face in Pioneering Surgery

When Carlos Askew was born to a drug-addicted mother, he was immediately removed from her care and placed in the custody of the state. In addition to the disadvantageous start he got as a result of his situation, he also was born partially deaf and with facial deformities caused by hemi-facial microsomia. This condition, HMF […]
