Researchers Use Big Data And Twitter DecaHose to Light up 3D Printed Model of MIT Campus

Students and researchers lit up their own version of MIT recently with a triumvirate of technology and analysis, making science look awfully fun in the process. Just check out LuminoCity,…

Ben Katz 3D Prints a 1:60 Scale Model Roller Coaster – Now Working the Full Scale Version

3D Printing can really be quite amazing. Each and every day, we are exposed to new unique ways in which artists, engineers, and designers use the technology to create objects,…

‘Fab By Example’ Software Makes Creation of Large Complicated 3D Models a Cinch

3-D printing has really opened up manufacturing to the masses because anything-food, prosthetics, car accessories–can be created with a 3-D printer. Certainly this is a good thing, however, there’s a big issue…

MIT Researchers Create a ‘Smart’ 3D Printer That Can Locate an Object & Print on Top of it

Last week, I reported on 3 MIT students that had created a 3D Printer capable of printing with ice cream. The Ice Cream 3D Printer was developed as part of Professor…

Indian Waste Pickers Produce 3D Filament with ProtoPrint

The job commonly known as ‘rag picking’ or ‘waste picking’ has been around for as long as humans have been discarding things. The waste pickers perform an important function by…

MIT Researchers 3D Print Shape Shifting Materials, Could Lead to New Types of Robots

Massachusetts Institute of Technology researchers, with the help of 3D printing, have developed a material that can switch between hard and soft. The material is described in a paper in…

I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for 3D Printed Ice Cream? 3D Ice Cream Printer is Created at MIT

With today’s technology, we have the ability to 3D print in plastics, metals, ceramics, and even Nutella. Each and every day it seems as though we are introduced to a…

3D Printed or Made by Hand: Models of Math Give Form to Equations

Many people don’t realize that math’s pages of equations have 3 dimensional counterparts and even fewer realize just how beautiful those forms can be. MIT has a series of such…

Researchers Use Microstereolithography 3D Printers to Print Objects 400X’s Stronger Than Current Standards

When it comes to 3D printing, most people visualize the process on a macro scale, a scale which can be observed with the human eye. Critics of 3D printing argue…
