With all the big industrial 3D printing news we’ve been seeing, it can sometimes be easy to overlook smaller, more grassroots 3D printing projects. Don’t worry though, because we’ve got some great 3D printing projects for you right here. If you’ve been looking for a fun way to spruce up your home or a cool gadget to play with, we highly suggest checking out these 3D printed designs.
Researchers at Idaho National Laboratory (INL) are using 3D printing in a new method for producing advanced nuclear fuels. Producing U3Si2 fuels with Additive Manufacturing as an Alternative Fabrication Technique (AMAFT) could improve both fuel cycle e…
A team of students from Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland has designed a low-cost 3D printed breast pump device that could ease the breastfeeding process for malnourished mothers in developing regions of the world.
McLaren Applied Technologies, a high-performance technology and design company and part of the famous McLaren Group, has used 3D scanning on “Project Invincible,” a personalized healthcare solution that uses the same materials going into next season’s McLaren Formula 1 car.
In recent years, Kickstarter has played a key role in the rise of many a 3D printer startup. But it’s also a great place to find fun little 3D printed toys and gadgets. Here are four 3D printing projects live on the crowdfunding platform right now, from educative robots to fantasy gaming terrain.
MX3D, a robotic additive manufacturing company based in Amsterdam, has offered an update on its long-mooted 3D printed steel bridge. The bridge, designed by Joris Laarman and funded by Autodesk, is 1/3 complete, and should be finished around June next …
Researchers at Columbia Engineering, the engineering department of New York’s Columbia University, have developed a 3D printed synthetic soft muscle with an “intrinsic expansion ability.” The incredible actuator, which paves the way for fully soft robots, can lift 1,000 times its own weight.
NASA has successfully tested a prototype for a 3D printed rocket engine component made from two different metal alloys. The 3D printed rocket part underwent thorough tests over the summer at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama.
Researchers at VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland are developing 3D printing materials for wound care in hospitals. The materials use cellulose nanofibrils, and have been paired with printed electronics for next-level healthcare.
Modeclix, an innovative process for creating wearable 3D printed textiles, took the runway by storm at Aarhus Walks on Water, a fashion and tech event held in the Danish city of Aarhus this past weekend.
