Researchers Develop Multimaterial Voxel-3D Printing Method For More Direct Data to Object Translation

Modern approaches to physical visualization and data representations still mostly use a 2D display of 3D data sets on planar computer screens, which doesn’t always present the best results. A specific research area, known as data or physical visualization, has been growing to achieve the representation of data sets in a physical form through digital fabrication. […]

Professor of Microfluidics Discusses 3D Printing Benefits and Possible Future Improvements with Ultimaker

A lab-on-a-chip is pretty self-explanatory: it’s a miniature laboratory that is printed onto a microchip. But for the past 25 years, Professor David Barrow of Cardiff University in Wales has studied microfluidics, which is basically a small-scale plumbing system on a chip. Both of these tiny objects, which Professor Barrow has experience with, prove once again that bigger is […]

Aurora Labs Ships First 3D Printer in the S-Titanium Line, is Top IPO on ASX

Although metal 3D printers are still quite expensive, the technology has significantly gone down in cost over the past couple of years. Not long ago, metal printers were largely unaffordable for all but the largest companies, but that’s changed as the technology continues to evolve and become more accessible. Now metal 3D printing is one […]
