How Did Lucy Really Die? Discussion Heats Up as Researchers Worldwide 3D Print Her Bones

I find the story of Lucy, the famous Australopithecus afarensis found in Ethiopia in 1974, to be utterly fascinating, as does most of the rest of the world. It would seem that many of us imagine her as a spunky precursor to humans as we know them now, perhaps losing her life eventually as she […]

Made for Me Offers Tips on SLS 3D Printing with Nylon: Enjoy Greater Durability & Versatility for Complex Models

As an artist is to pencils and paints, the 3D printing enthusiast is to materials. And if you’ve become passionate about using this technology, whether at home or for work, then you are probably beginning to branch out beyond ABS and PLA—although hopefully you took away some helpful information from our last major article on […]

College Student 3D Prints the Scariest Mask Ever... of Himself!

3D printing has been lending itself to the creation of all sorts of interesting costumes, masks, and accessories as of late. The ability to completely design a costume from the ground up has attracted many artists, designers, and creative minds into entering the realm of 3D printed fashion and cosplay. We have seen masks created, […]

Researchers Use DNA as 'Smart Glue' to Provide Structure for 3D Bio-Printing

The abilities of 3D printing to create bio-materials is on the cutting edge of science, but has been somewhat limited to date by technicalities like massive expenses and the fact that 3D printing using microscale materials would lead to microscale products. These factors have so far severely limited the potential for applications including 3D printing […]
