MIT CSAIL Researchers Develop Design System for 3D Printing Topology Optimization

MIT CSAIL Researchers Develop Design System for 3D Printing Topology Optimization

Whether they’re inspired by a gold beetle to 3D print a multi-material electronic device, creating programmable soft 3D printing materials for robots and drones, or making it possible to watch 3D movies at home without having to wear 3D glasses, we’re always interested to hear what new innovation the researchers at MIT’s Computer Science and […]

DCL Researchers' New 3D Printing Software Used to Design Voxel Chair 3D Printed with a Continuous Line of Material

Whenever we hear about a new project from researchers and students at the Bartlett School of Architecture in London, we know it’s going to be something unique and interesting, like a self-sustaining quarry project in Rio de Janeiro that uses quarry dust as a 3D printing material, developing new methods for 3D printing with concrete, or […]

Multi Jet Fusion 3D Printer: HP Focused Development on Economics, Voxel Level, Collaboration

Just outside of Barcelona, in Sant Cugat del Vallès, Spain, HP houses some incredible large-format printing equipment, with unbelievably huge digital web presses — and, deeper within their labs, some highly-anticipated 3D printers. At the beginning of May, a dozen of us were gathered to the site to preview the all-new Multi Jet Fusion 3D printing […]

Monolith -- A Photoshop On Steroids for 3D Designers and Print Technicians

If you’re not familiar with the concept of a voxel, it’s basically a three-dimensional version of the pixel from the digital imaging world. The word itself is meant to describe what designers call a “volume pixel,” and each one represents the singular attributes of a 3D object which includes many such units. The information in a […]

“We live in an era where the impossible has finally come to pass. In our own little way we have become demi-gods of creation.” – Jonty Hurwitz We’ve seen some absolutely amazing art over the past 6,000 years of human history, and, more recently, we’ve seen some incredible creations that were made using 3D printing […]

Voxelizer Software Update: Allows for Modeling With 3D Pixels & Aims to Make Medical Models Affordable

A lot of people look at the 3D printing space as one that is quite miraculous. When they see objects being printed on these futuristic machines, they don’t stop to realize that each and every object has to be either scanned in, or modeled by a designer, prior to it becoming a tangible object. 3D […]
