Creativity and Pragmatism in 3D Printing Come Together at IC3D

Creativity and Pragmatism in 3D Printing Come Together at IC3D

“A lot of people get 3D printers now, but not the applications for them,” Michael Cao, CEO of IC3D, told me this week. “It’s like a computer now; what can you do with it? What can’t you do with it?” When computers first rolled onto the scene, no one was entirely sure what to make […]

NASA’s Early Stage Innovations Grants Awarded to 13 Universities; Several to Explore 3D Printing

In several years, it’s going to be very interesting indeed to see what comes of 13 early stage innovation space technology grants just awarded to universities around the US via NASA. Not your run-of-the mill science projects, these innovations may have as much as $500,000 behind them through the grants. Each one of the university […]

3D Printing and Forensic Reconstruction Put to Work in Ohio Cold Case

3D Printing and Forensic Reconstruction Put to Work in Ohio Cold Case

We’ve seen 3D printing used in facial reconstruction before. A lot of times the technology is used to learn more about the bones of not only the skull, but also the body, from long-gone historical figures, like with Lucy, the famous Australopithecus afarensis, or a centuries-old skull from the Battle of Culloden. It can also be of […]

The Stories We Didn't Cover This Week -- September 5

This week’s 3D printing stories include some examples of the cool things you can make if you have access to a 3D printer, like a Transformer birthday cake and a 3D printed hairbrush that is really easy to clean. The stories also include news about 3D printing’s expansions in Eastern Europe (Hungary) and the Asia-Pacific. Shapecloud, an online 3D printing […]

Manatee Skeleton Recreated with 3D Printing

Manatee Skeleton Recreated with 3D Printing

Manatees slowly graze underwater in the wild, but very near the surface. They subsist on water grasses, weeds and algae to maintain their massive bodies, and on average, an adult manatee weighs between 800 and 1,200 pounds and can reach 8 to 10 feet in length. But while they are very large, they actually have […]
