Police in Germany plan to 3D print a gun to test whether the weapon can pass through security checks undetected.
NASA is turning science fiction into fact by funding a 3D bioprinting project at the Ames Research Center.It's one the 12 projects for study under the Innovative Advanced Concepts Program.
The developers of Make It Stand want to assist users in modifying existing 3D models to create novel, balanced designs.
Richrap is launching a series of blog posts to show assembly, setup, calibration, and firmware configuration in stages of the 3DR RepRap Delta Printer.
Gold plated brass models are fabricated using a complex process. First, the model is printed in a wax using a high-resolution 3D printer. It is then put in a container where liquid plaster is poured in around it.
The 3D printing technique, using a powdered metal, is ideally suited for producing this type of patient-specific implant. The fact that the technique can now be used for a complete lower jaw implant is unique.
The gel supports the liquid resin deposited by the robot while it hardens, overcoming a shortcoming of other 3D printing technologies, where structures to prevent the objects from collapsing need to be printed along with the objects themselves.
Ford engineers have designed a new 3D printed shift knob that tells drivers when to shift based on haptic feedback.
Vincennes University originally intended to purchase a 3D printer that produces plastic models. However, they noticed an Mcor 3D printer using ordinary sheets of paper to create solid, durable physical models
Laika, the Portland based stop-motion animation studio behind the Oscar-nominated Coraline and ParaNorman is pioneering the use of 3D printing technology to create inventive stop-motion work.
