Researchers Endeavor to Develop a 3D Printer That Can Print Onto Anything

Researchers Endeavor to Develop a 3D Printer That Can Print Onto Anything

As 3D printing continues to develop and evolve, we’ve begun to see it branch off quite a bit from the typical image of a machine depositing layers onto a flat build platform. 3D printing has been adapted to print onto preexisting objects, onto fabric, and in multiple directions. Machines capable of doing these fancy tricks […]

3D Printing and CNC Machining Complement Each Other in the Ooznest OX

3D Printing and CNC Machining Complement Each Other in the Ooznest OX

While CNC machining and 3D printing may seem to be the opposite of each other – one removes material, the other adds material – the two technologies complement each other well, as the growing number of CNC mill/3D printer hybrid machines demonstrates. In fact, one might even say that the two technologies make each other. […]
