Optimizing the Properties of Recycled 3D Printing Materials

Optimizing the Properties of Recycled 3D Printing Materials

In an attempt to mitigate the environmental impact of 3D printing, several organizations have taken to creating recycled filament, made not only from failed prints but from water bottles and other garbage. Inexpensive filament extruders are also available to allow makers to make their own filament from recyclable materials. Not only does recycled filament help […]

Los Angeles: Greneker Explores the Challenges of 3D Printing Their Mannequins

3D printing has changed the world of how we create today in so many ways. Allowing for self-sustainability in innovation, everyone from the home hobbyist entrenched in DIY to the engineer working for an automotive company can make designs, objects, prototypes—and so much more—even houses. Many are newer to the technology and may be working […]

Use Autodesk Meshmixer to Improve Quality of Scaled-Down 3D Prints

Some of the most helpful 3D printing information can seem boring, but keep in mind that this kind of information may greatly benefit your own 3D printing experimentation. One of these issues is how to improve print quality when you plan to test print a large design at a much scaled-down size. Many scaled-down objects don’t print well, and […]

Jaws –- The 3D Printer Extruder Drive Bolt with Bite

No, there’s no ominous John Williams score to accompany this article, just smooth and consistent extrusion of 3D print filament. Matthew Fiedler and the Houston-based team at re:3D have developed a novel extruder bolt, which they’ve affectionately named Jaws. They intend to use Jaws to create a more consistent 3D printing experience. One of the most […]
