Custom Prototypes Reclaims AMUG Gold with Stunning Metal 3D Printed Roman Helmet

Custom Prototypes Reclaims AMUG Gold with Stunning Metal 3D Printed Roman Helmet

Last week, the Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG) held its annual conference in St. Louis, Missouri. Many 3D printing announcements came out of the show, but the one I’m most excited about is the news that Custom Prototypes, a Toronto-based 3D printing company that always produces enjoyable work, has taken first place in the Advanced […]

TwoCure Method Enables Resin 3D Printing Without Supports

SLA 3D printing is wonderful for many reasons, such as speed and the ability to produce high-resolution objects. It does tend to require some post-processing, though, particularly support removal. Supports tend to be necessary for SLA 3D printing, but a group of experts from the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT and Rapid Shape GmbH have developed […]

Like many junior high school students, I opted to choose an instrument to study and play in the school’s musical ensemble, or band, though I had a college professor who told our ensemble that it was only a band if we were on our feet and marching (I did that as well). Following in my […]

Stratasys Introduces New Support Material That Promises to Make Post-Processing a Breeze

People who have never 3D printed anything before sometimes think that once the printer stops printing, the job is finished. Sadly, this is not the case, as any maker with a degree of experience will know. Once the model finishes printing, the real work starts. Removing the print from the build platform can be an […]

Retouch3D Finalizing Design for Their 3D Print Finishing Pen

Created by 3D 2.0, the Retouch3D was launched via a Kickstarter campaign to build “the world’s first heated tool to finish 3D prints with variable heat and interchangeable heads designed for specific 3D retouching tasks.” And it was a popular idea indeed as 394 backers pledged a total of $56,398 — well over the original […]

New PolySupport Offers Sweet Spot in Removing 3D Printing Support Materials With Ease

You’ll need to print with supports. Perhaps learning that that fills you with as much dread as being responsible for those children’s holiday gifts that come with 387 pieces and announce ‘simple assembly required’ on the box. If you’ve bravely gone on to make an intricate design with supports only to experience the complete destruction of […]

Retouch3D is a Heated Interchangeable Tool for Cleaning Up 3D Printed Objects – Now on Kickstarter

I have a confession to make, a confession that may cause me to lose some respect among 3D printing enthusiasts… I only 3D print objects on my 3D printer that require no support material. Yes it’s true, I’m lazy and I hate having to clean up anything that comes off of my 3D printer. Not everyone is […]
