MIT 3D Scanning Solution Uses Low-Cost Kinect to Produce High-Resolution Imaging of a Tyrannosaurus Rex Called Sue

MIT 3D Scanning Solution Uses Low-Cost Kinect to Produce High-Resolution Imaging of a Tyrannosaurus Rex Called Sue

Anyone who thinks that the lion is king of the beasts obviously hasn’t taken a good luck at a Tyrannosaurus rex lately. However, since the T. rex has been extinct for a pretty long time, and Jurassic Park is unlikely to become reality, today you can only see models or skeletons of the great dinosaur. 3D printing […]

R&D Aspects of 3D Printed Prosthetics

R&D Aspects of 3D Printed Prosthetics

A prosthetic is an artificial device that replaces a missing body part. The most commonly known type of prosthetic is limb prostheses, but other types such as craniofacial prostheses and intra-oral prostheses help people as well. Those who benefit from prosthetics include war veterans, people who suffer from physical traumas, and those who have congenitally […]

MIT Uses 3D Printing to Create Shape-Shifting Noodles

Is there anyone who isn’t fascinated and delighted by the many shapes of pasta? There may be some people who don’t get excited about pasta, yes, and I do apologize for raving about pasta shapes more than once. I know I’m not the only one, however, judging from the 3D printed pasta design contests out […]
