President Obama Opened Hannover Messe with a Pitch for TPP and a Shoutout to 3D Printing in the US

As a sign of how important the technology is becoming to the resurgence of industry and manufacturing in the United States, 3D printing was the only specific technology mentioned by President Barack Obama as he spoke at the opening ceremony of the Hannover Messe trade show on Monday. 3D printing played a huge role at […]

America Makes...Excuses

America Makes...Excuses

I didn’t plan to write a follow up article about America Makes. Their “pay to play” strategy creates a big barrier for startups, which I feel are critical to the development of the 3D printing industry. It’s hard enough for entrepreneurs to get a fair shake in the private sector. Organizations in the public domain […]

9-Year-Old Representing Baltimore's Digital Harbor Foundation Dazzles President Obama with 3D Printing Expertise

Baltimore is not an easy place to grow up, by a long shot. But you wouldn’t know that from hearing about Jacob Legette, a 9-year-old West Baltimore resident, who recently got to spend a day showing off his 3D printed wares to none other than the President himself. Hailing from the neighborhood rocked hard by news of […]

3D Printing the President for Posterity: Mcor Shows the Smithsonian How it's Really Done

As President Obama himself has lauded 3D printing as a positive technology that will indeed be a catalyst for change in manufacturing, certainly portraying him in that medium for posterity–amongst so many others–is a perfect fit. But all 3D printed models are not created equally–something we see on a daily basis–and a point that Mcor […]

The ability to 3D scan and then print objects within hours has presented numerous applications for the preservation of history, both from the past and the present. This has never been the case more so than last year when a team from the Smithsonian Institute received permission from the White House to come in and […]

Chinese Government to Put 3D Printers in All 400,000 Elementary Schools by Next Year

Chinese Government to Put 3D Printers in All 400,000 Elementary Schools by Next Year

Education is probably one of the areas that will benefit the most from 3D printers in the long run. The problem though is getting the machines into the schools in the first place. With prices generally ranging from $400 to $3,000 for typical desktop 3D printers, they are not cheap, and with budgets within many school […]

I’m not political by any means, and personally I don’t affiliate myself with any particular political parties. I have some ideologies that would be considered conservative, while others would be more liberal in nature. Usually when it comes to Presidents of the United States, I support them fully no matter if I agree with the majority of […]

Last year, our top viewed stories all had one thing in common, they were in some way related to Local Motors and their 3D Printed Strati Car. Just a few years ago, if you were to ask almost anyone if we’d be printing out automobiles, they’d probably try committing you. Here we are in 2015, […]

3D Printed Bust of Obama Adds Truly Modern Touch to Presidential Portraiture

Among the most familiar faces in the world are those that belong to the leaders of world powers. More so than ever before, it is difficult to imagine a time when the vast majority of the world would have had no access to a ruler’s likeness. From marble busts to reliefs on coins to hand […]

Cremation Solutions Creates Urns That Replicate Your Deceased Loved Ones.... Or President Obama?

Customization is what will ultimately lead 3D printing out of the category of being just a “cool technology” and into the realm of mainstream manufacturing. It is the technology’s ability to create objects custom to each individual, whether it is a prosthetic hand, a perfectly fitted shoe or insole, a titanium hip replacement or even […]
