Maker Shows Us How to Build Our Own E-Waste 3D Printer Using Trashed Technology

As many of us pound out blogs, emails, and various communications on the keys of our electronics, many of them laptops or PCs with double and sometimes even triple monitors, often tackling concerns about what’s eco-friendly and what’s not, how to save the planet, and so on–do we consider what’s going to happen to those […]

3D Printing: The Stories We Didn’t Cover This Week — June 13, 2015

This week’s stories we missed may produce a heavy sigh for those wondering how they can merge all of their favorite pastimes — eating potato chips, building with Legos, controlling a 3D printed robot with your smartphone — together in one experience. PepsiCo kicks off the news with a 3D printed Deeply Ridged and patented potato chip; a Kickstarter campaign […]

3D Printed Pi-Booth Lets Employees Capture Better Photo ID Likenesses

Even the more photogenic people among us would surely concur that, when it comes to the mini-portraits that grace various forms of personal identification, they’ve definitely looked better. For most people, ID photos often look very much like grim mugshots. Chances are that, when you begin a new job, you get a photo ID badge or possibly […]

15-Year-Old 3D Prints Incredible Robot Capable of Picking Up and Moving Objects on Demand

Over the past year or so, we have covered stories involving the 3D printing of dozens of different robots. Robotics and 3D printing seem to go together like peanut butter and jelly. Both technologies are great on their own, but when combined together, become extraordinary. We have seen scientists and engineers from around the globe […]

Dumpster-Diving DIYer Uses Salvaged Wi-Fi Router to Control His 3D Printer

When Floridian Matt Defenthaler bought a home 3D printer, he went with a kit rather than purchasing a fully assembled one. He ordered his Makerfarm i3v printer (I’m pretty sure he got a Prusa 8” i3v, which sells for around $550), he knew he’d get everything he needed to assemble his new 3D printer with […]

Incredible 3D Printed Blooming Zoetropes Sculptures

Nature is filled with numbers — or possibly numbers are filled with nature. Either way, artists have been exploring the relationships between numerical form and physical form for as long as the human mind has been aware of either. Scholars have long debated the intentionality behind the proportions assigned to constructions such as the Parthenon […]

Mount St. Helens’ Historic Volcanic Eruption is Relived Through 3D Printing

The human mind works in 3 dimensions. We see in 3D, we dream in 3D, and we think in 3D. When we are asked to envision the world in just 2 dimensions, our brains have a more difficult time grasping the concept. Think about it for a moment. We are all constantly striving to make […]

Grillz – New York-Based Artists Uses 3D Printing to Explore Hip Hop Culture

New York-based artist, Roopa Vasudevan’s, latest exploration of American culture transforms the spoken word into 3D-printed reflections in polished gold steel. Vasudevan’s exhibition, “Grillz,” examines the polarities of hip hop music: References to poverty–drugs, prostitution, public housing or “the projects”–are opposed with those symbolic of wealth–jewelry, cars, money and so forth. “Grillz” considers the way […]
