Blast Off with Full-Color 3D Printed Spacecraft from Elite Dangerous

By Tyler Koslow

3D printing is helping to take your favorite game-based props and characters off of the screen and into your hand. 3D print merchandisers like the France-based FabZat have placed a primary focus on customized 3D printed content from video games like Minecraft and World of Warcraft. Even game developers themselves are getting involved in the 3D printing hype, G21’s XMODULE racing game recently announced that their in-game cars would be offered in the form of custom 3D prints.

How to 3D Print in Full Color: DIY Style

By Tyler Koslow

From Taiwan to Ireland, 3D printing enthusiasts around the world are preparing for the next big thing in additive manufacturing: full color 3D printing. 3D printing companies such as 3D Systems previously dominated the full color 3D printing race with the ColorJet Printing, but their hefty price tag of around $40k is discouraging for your average Maker and 3D printing enthusiasts. One user from Instructables.com named Jason Powell has just come up with a DIY path to bring full-color 3D printing to his redesigned Rostock Max, the popular delta 3D printer with a mere $1,000 price tag, making for a much more affordable color printer than any other company on the market.…

Watch the 2D Printing Industry Transition into a New Dimension with 3D Printing

By Davide Sher

Recently, I was contacted by a gentleman who lived in Long Island and briefly attended the same College as I, SUNY Stony Brook (well, I did not attend much, but I did graduate). He had gone on to a successful career as a sales account for large 2D printing companies. He asked me for some advice on how to make a career move from professional 2D printing to 3D printing. I am writing about this because, while I thought about possible suggestions for shows to visit and companies to contact, I came to the realisation that this is exactly the time to make that move.…

Lunavast Adds Layer Dying to Color FDM 3D Printer

By Michael Molitch-Hou

Before the end of 2015, I was introduced to the Lunavast CrafteHbot 3D printer kit. Developed by Lunavast as a potential full-color FDM process, the CrafteHbot utilizes an inkjet printhead to dye 3D printed objects after they have been printed.  Perhaps tipped off by our own readers’ comments, Lunavast has added a further enhancement to their product that actually dyes objects while the print is taking place.

To reiterate, to introduce this dying process to the CrafteHbot 3D printer, customers will have to disassemble a color inkjet printer and install the printhead into the CrafteHbot kit.…

WhiteClouds Acquires 3DplusMe for Massive 3D-as-a-Service (3DaaS) Platform

By Michael Molitch-Hou

Davide recently reported news that US-based WhiteClouds had become the largest provider of full-color 3D printing services in the world.  And, today at CES, the company announced that it had just purchased 3DplusMe, which, if you’re a regular reader of 3DPI, might realize is a pretty big deal.  This gives WhiteClouds a new software solution that allows them to implement 3D-scan-to-print services for customizable, full-color, 3D printed products.

Previously, 3DplusMe has worked with a number of huge names to allow customers to have their faces scanned and placed onto the bodies of famous characters and athletes for 3D printing through their 3D+Heroes™, 3D+Characters™, 3D+Toybox™, and 3D+Gamer™ platforms.…
