3D printed camper “The Wave” set to break world record for size

3D printed houses are always popular stories,  but now a unique project in Saskatoon, Canada, is starting a new trend. This Thursday at 1pm EST, Wave of the Future 3D will be 3D printing an 13 foot long camper trailer. The full process will be broadcast live on Facebook, over 10 – 14 days, and is […]

10DPrintives Releases the Quadra Synchronous 3D Printer

By Tyler Koslow

In order to make 3D printing more commercially viable, some manufacturers have been experimenting with synchronous 3D printing, using multiple print heads to print more than one object at the same time. Synchronous 3D printers can make better use of time and space on the print bed, and the trending printing method seems to be catching on. At the recent Inside 3D Printing event in Dusseldorf, Germany, one 3D printing company from Redmond, Washington, named 10DPrintives, showcased their first-ever 3D printer, a synchronous printing machine called the Quadra.…

3D Platform Launches 3DP Workbench, Large-Format Printer-Workshop Hybrid

By Tyler Koslow

Last time I reported on large-scale, industrial-strength 3D printer manufacturer 3D Platform, their 3DP1000 was making a name for itself within companies and research laboratories across the world. Formerly known as 3DP Unlimited, the Illinois-based 3D Platform has just announced their newest large-scale 3D printer, the 3DP Workbench. The 3DP Workbench has a massive build area of 1m x 1m x 0.5m, and also utilizes industrial-grade mechatronics, which enables precision prints with a 70-micron layer resolution. Planning to release the 3DP Workbench at the end of Q1 2016, 3DP has engineered and designed their newest industrial-grade 3D printer to a more improved and convenient experience all-around.…

Enormous 3D Printed Lion Looms Outside France’s Grand Olympic Stadium

By Daniel Recalde

A majestic bluem 3D printed lion statue has just been installed outside of Lyon’s new Grand Olympic Stadium by the French startup Drawn, which specializes in large-scale 3D printing.

The lion is the first of a four part series to be stationed at points along the stadium’s perimeter, corresponding with the four cardinal directions. The remaining three lions will be painted red, white, and gold, composing the team colors of France’s Olympique Lyonnais football club. The sheer size of the monument represented an obvious technological challenge, with a height of almost 14 feet, an 8-foot square base, and a weight of over 3,300 pounds.…
