Weidenfeld-Hoffmann Scholar Gives Compelling Speech on Impacts of 3D Printing

If you’re interested in keeping your fingers on the pulse of 3D printing and other technologies, sites like Reddit are a great place to watch and read—and you surely never know what you will see or learn there. What’s also very helpful is to check out new projects and details, as well as scoping out […]

Louisiana Tech Engineering Students 3D Print UAV for NASA Research

The unmanned aerial vehicle, the UAV, is also commonly known as the drone. While these originally were thought to be rather dubious government issued aircraft, that reputation has mostly been put to rest as everyone started getting in on the fun. Today they are often the handiwork of talented hobbyists—many of whom are also quite […]

Australian Students 3D Printed and Tested a Rocket, and It Works Pretty Well

Australian Students 3D Printed and Tested a Rocket, and It Works Pretty Well

“It’s not rocket science.” How many times have you heard that phrase uttered? It’s generally said disparagingly, to slight someone who is failing to grasp something simple. At Australia’s Gungahlin College, a lot of the coursework is, in fact, rocket science. The school, which prides itself on training its students in the most up-to-date technology, offers a […]

Students Apply Cutting Edge Technology to 3D Print Local History

Bergen is the second most highly populated city in Norway, having been surpassed by the capital Oslo only in the 1830s. It was founded in the 11th century most likely as a trading post and is, therefore, rich with history. It occupied a highly important place in the history of Norway as the site of battles, […]

Utah High School Students 3D Print Tripod Device to Tether iPad for Special Needs Student

Most teenagers have two things in common: a love for electronic communication devices — and a need to keep them close for ‘talking,’ which turns into a constant organizational battle as they are ultimately left somewhere, dropped, or lost. An affinity for most new electronic and high-tech innovations can generally be assured as well, and […]

Student 3D Prints Incredible Functional Gearbox in One Piece, Proving Stratasys' Curriculum is For Real

Functionality is something that is hard to come by for designers of 3D printable objects. The fact that desktop 3D printers are relatively new to the consumer market, and that they print in limited plastic materials, means that creating functional objects can be quite hard. Back in December, we reported on 3D printer manufacturer Stratasys, […]

The Great Globe Project: 10.5 Million Piece, 420 ft Wide, 3D Printed Model of Earth

We have seen so many incredible collaborative efforts involving 3D printing over the last couple of years. Desktop 3D printers are limited in that only objects of a certain size are able to be produced in a single piece. Many hobbyists and designers alike tend to get around these limitations by printing larger objects in […]

There are those people who believe that everyone will one day soon own their very own 3D printer, while others don’t believe the at-home ownership numbers for 3D printers will ever challenge that of traditional 2D desktop printers. More than likely, it will take at least a decade before a majority of homes in the United […]
