When One Thing Leads to Another: 3D Printing the Unexpected

One of the things that often surprises an organization that gets its first 3D printer is the unexpected uses that seem to pop out of the woodwork once it arrives. Someone in one department will decide to get a 3D printer for a specific project, and once word of the new machine spreads through the […]

Exclusive Interview: Texas A&M Veterinarian Creates Entirely New Treatment to Save a Dog With a Gigabot 3D Printer

Most people can tell you a story about what made them finally decide to acquire a 3D printer or to start learning about the technology. For Dr. Michael Deveau, Radiation Oncologist and Clinical Associate Professor at Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, it was a small dog named Cootie that motivated him to […]

NASDAQ Stock Market Opens to Sound of a Bell Rung by 3D Printed Medical Device Startup TriFusion Devices

NASDAQ Stock Market Opens to Sound of a Bell Rung by 3D Printed Medical Device Startup TriFusion Devices

There may be no better metaphor for the way 3D printing and robotics are changing the economy than the ceremonial participation by frontier tech companies – and in some cases, the technology itself – in national stock markets. In April, the Amsterdam Stock Exchange opened its morning ceremonies with a bell rung by a 3D […]

Sinterex & TAMU: Paving the Road for Metal 3D Printing in the Middle East

The Middle East is the cradle of civilization, the area of the world in which some the oldest textiles, tools, and texts have been discovered. This long and storied past, however, doesn’t mean that it isn’t also an area that wants to engage with the latest and greatest technological innovations. Efforts are underway to create […]

3D Printed Knee Cartilage: Improvement on Meniscectomy Surgeries to be Offered Soon

A technology that was once not accessible to the public, 3D printing is now highly visible. You’ll see plug-and-play 3D printers available at great prices in the most common of physical and online stores today, at your local libraries with patrons literally going to town making 3D models, and in a multitude of schools–even in quite rural […]

Making Wind Turbines Bat-Proof: Researchers to Create 3D Printed Echolocation Whistles

Cashing in on the pros of wind energy sure sounds like a great idea up front, but before you go erecting a wind turbine in the expanse of your back yard, there are some things to consider. As with all ‘pros,’ there are unfortunately usually cons to balance everything out. Many find wind energy to […]
