Formlabs Brings Experts in Design, Manufacturing, Entertainment and 3D Printing to This Year's Roadshow

Formlabs Brings Experts in Design, Manufacturing, Entertainment and 3D Printing to This Year's Roadshow

There are some major 3D printing trade shows that cover all or most aspects of the industry, and then there are more niche events that focus on a smaller area – like last week’s summit on 3D printing in medicine and dentistry, for example. Coming up next week, on February 8 and 9, following SOLIDWORKS […]

Relativity Space Takes Inexpensive Rockets to New Level with Giant Stargate 3D Printer

Relativity Space Takes Inexpensive Rockets to New Level with Giant Stargate 3D Printer

Launching a rocket is not cheap; right now, the cost is about $100 million. Within four years, Relativity Space wants to bring that price down to $10 million. How are they going to do that? By removing humans from the picture and letting a machine do all the work – in particular, a giant 3D […]

Selective Separation Sintering: NASA Challenge Leads to an Entirely New 3D Printing Technology for the Moon and Mars

Selective Separation Sintering: NASA Challenge Leads to an Entirely New 3D Printing Technology for the Moon and Mars

While there are many reasons to push for the development of 3D printing technology in space, the biggest reason is that shipping things to outer space is expensive – really expensive. According to NASA, it costs about $10,000 to launch a mere kilogram of cargo into low Earth orbit, and $100,000 to send that same […]

Mumbai Surgeons Have Great Success with 3D Printed Models to Assist in Surgical Procedures

Mumbai Surgeons Have Great Success with 3D Printed Models to Assist in Surgical Procedures

Dr. Inderbir Gill is not only getting experienced at seeing to the creation of 3D models, he’s also becoming highly proficient with more complex surgeries that certainly would have been more difficult, taken longer, and been harder to explain to others without the benefit of the models—and actually may in some cases have not even been possible before. […]

USC Researchers Working on Free Gaming Avatar Program Using 3D Scans

A University of Southern California research team has revolutionized modern communication by including users as part of its software. Individuals can now scan their own faces and bodies, upload these features into a simulation, and create a personal avatar. These personal avatars have applications in gaming, and they can also be used in police training and military programs. No doubt this will become […]

The (Im)Possible Futures of Los Angeles Told with Eight 3D Printed Architectural Models

The (Im)Possible Futures of Los Angeles Told with Eight 3D Printed Architectural Models

A new art installation opened last month at the University of Southern California’s Doheny Memorial Library that takes a fictional stroll through the future of one of the United States’ most iconic and expansive cities. Called L.A. T.B.D., the project was created by design writer and 2015’s USC Library Discovery Fellow Geoff Manaugh in collaboration […]

How Ancient Origami Will Influence the Design Future and Speed of Additive Manufacturing

How Ancient Origami Will Influence the Design Future and Speed of Additive Manufacturing

Japanese origami, the art of paper folding, began some time after Buddhist monks first carried paper to Japan during the 6th century. Initially, it was used for religious ceremonial purposes, and that was mostly due to the high price of paper at the time. It’s said that Samurai warriors once exchanged gifts adorned with noshi, good luck […]

Affordable Metal 3D Printing - New Selective Inhibition Sintering (SIS) Process May Be Groundbreaking

Affordable Metal 3D Printing - New Selective Inhibition Sintering (SIS) Process May Be Groundbreaking

We have covered several very interesting methods of affordable 3D metal printing in the past. Although none of them has made it to market as of yet, there is little doubt that within the next few years there will be affordable desktop metal 3D printers available, likely several. Currently, machines capable of printing with various metal alloys […]

3D Printing Houses Via Contour Crafting - Winner of 'Create the Future' Competition

3D Printing Houses Via Contour Crafting - Winner of 'Create the Future' Competition

In 2002, the publishers of the magazine NASA Tech Briefs began a contest titled “Create the Future” as a way to push forward and recognize outstanding innovation in engineering. It rapidly became a very popular competition, drawing over 8,000 product design concepts from a wide range of fields. The winners of past contests have made […]
