Students Help Students with 3D Printed Glasses Project

If you have poor eyesight, you know how difficult it can be to try to function without glasses or contacts. I alternate between both – I started wearing glasses way back in the third grade, then got contacts in high school. I recently just upgraded to new glasses and contacts – because my vision got […]

Lenovo Lends a 3D Printed Helping Hand to Children in Need of Prosthetics

Lenovo Lends a 3D Printed Helping Hand to Children in Need of Prosthetics

Multinational corporation Lenovo, manufacturer of technology such as computers and tablets, first got into 3D printing a few years ago with a chocolate 3D printer. Since then, the company has gotten more serious than confectionery (though chocolate is plenty serious). Rather than manufacturing its own 3D printers, however, Lenovo is combining its computers with outside […]

Rize CEO: How Do We Make 3D Printing Immersive in the Experience of Engineers?

For a new technology to truly take hold, a movement requires momentum; the greatest ideas will, without being put into use, wither away and gather dust. Additive manufacturing is gaining traction, with no time for dust to settle as innovation continues at a fast pace. Still, significant barriers to adoption are holding back the rates […]

3D Printing, Nature, and the Industry Renaissance

A revolution marks a sea change, a hard resetting of the status quo; a renaissance is, literally, a rebirth. While a revolution is typically relatively short in duration and punctuated by some fundamental shift that changes a paradigm, often political, a renaissance is a process in itself that brings about a more gradual shift in […]
