3D Printing with Human Waste: Astroplastic Takes Raw Materials from Colon to Mars Colony

3D Printing with Human Waste: Astroplastic Takes Raw Materials from Colon to Mars Colony

While many people may still think that plastic is the only 3D printable material out there, that’s definitely not the case. Obviously there’s metal 3D printing, and biomaterials, flexible filaments and metamaterials. Then you move into wood and food, and even stranger materials, like algae and crushed grape skins. But today, we’re focusing on what is […]

3D Systems' High-Quality 3D Printed Appearance Models Provide Trade Show Support at Oil & Gas Industry Event

Large-scale parts and machines are not always the easiest, or cheapest, objects to bring to a trade show or conference. But 2D photographs just don’t offer the same kind of experience as actually seeing the object for yourself, so sometimes the next best option is a scale or appearance model, which can offer support at […]

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 […]

Will the 'Sinterit Lisa' Usher in Affordable Desktop Selective Laser Sintering?

Selective laser sintering (SLS) is probably one of the more underrepresented 3D printing processes being used right now. Despite being versatile and highly detailed, it often scares off small and medium sized businesses with high prices, messy powder materials and the need for a dedicated, enclosed workspace. The price is especially intimidating to small, 3D […]
