Designer Uses Sinterit Lisa and Autodesk Netfabb to Design and 3D Print Children's Protective Face Mask

We see a lot of 3D printed masks here on 3DPrint.com, and while plenty are designed for fun events like Halloween parties and cosplay, many 3D printed masks serve very specific purposes in the medical field. One example we’ve seen is a 3D printed air-filtering face mask, an unfortunately necessary accessory in cities where the […]

Prosthetic Leg Prototype Designed to Improve Balance and Mobility for Dogs

We’ve seen birds, tortoises, lizards, and cats get a new lease on life thanks to 3D printed prosthetic limbs, but more often, it seems, we hear about puppies and dogs that benefit from the use of 3D printed prosthetics – though the technology doesn’t always end up being the right choice. Recently, Model Solution, a provider […]

SLS 3D Printing Leads to Better Augmented Reality Glasses

SLS 3D Printing Leads to Better Augmented Reality Glasses

Augmented reality has, believe it or not, been around since 1968, although it didn’t start making significant progress until the 21st century. Many people think of augmented reality, or AR, as purely an entertainment technology, meant for things like Pokémon Go and other games. It’s actually an extremely useful technology in the workplace, however, particularly […]

Low Cost Selective Laser Sintering: The Innovator's Dilemma in Powder?

Low Cost Selective Laser Sintering: The Innovator's Dilemma in Powder?

Selective Laser Sintering is also called powder bed fusion and SLS. The SLS process sees a bed of polymer powder selectively sintered by a laser. A new layer is applied and this is then also hardened with unsintered powder acting as a support. Dominated by EOS Gmbh, SLS is probably the most high volume, high […]

Polish Designer Uses Sinterit Lisa 3D Printer to Make Exoskeleton Arms for Children with Spinal Muscular Atrophy

I’ve heard it said that a kid’s main job is just to be a kid – go play, and enjoy the time before adult problems start crowding in. However, I imagine it’s pretty tough to just be a kid when you have a genetic neuromuscular disease like Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA), which means that you […]
