Exclusive Interview with Eugene Suyu, Founder and CEO, Tinkerine (TTD.V)

By Samuel Adams

I had the chance to talk to Eugene Suyu, the young CEO and founder of Tinkerine, one of the leading Canadian 3D printing manufacturers. During the long chat I had with him, I had the opportunity to discuss the Tinkerine vision, last year’s performance, and how Eugene intends to bring the company to profitability.

Cryptic Message from Solidoodle Represents Possible Omen

By Michael Molitch-Hou

As one of the original leaders in desktop 3D printing, Brooklyn-based Solidoodle has been a name brand in the industry since 2011. Today, a cryptic message has appeared at the top of the company’s website which may be a harbinger regarding the future of Solidoodle. It reads, “Attention Customers: Ordering is currently disabled on the site. We’ll be providing more information over the next few days. We appreciate your patience during that time.”

Established by former MakerBot COO Sam Cervantes, Solidoodle has steadily kept pace with the rest of the industry, improving its printers with each new generation and maintaining a lively community of dedicated users.…

REAL 2016: There’s More to 3D Printing than Just 3D Printing

By Tyler Koslow

3D printing technology has certainly become a steady rock in both the manufacturing and Maker worlds, but it is far from an island. In fact, 3D printing is heavily intertwined with and dependent on an ecosystem that Autodesk calls “Reality Computing”, coined by the software developer to address an umbrella of 3D (and other related technologies) in general. This includes 3D image capturing, 3D modeling, and, of course, 3D printing, each of which has become increasingly dependent on the others as the digital world continues to blend with the physical.…

Denver University Researchers Bioprint Artificial Heart Valves with BioBot 3D Printer

By Tyler Koslow

3D printing technology holds a lot of potential value in the medical industry, especially when it comes to bioprinting functional implants from human cells. After forming a partnership with Denver’s 3D Printing Store, researchers from Denver University have been experimenting with a BioBot 1 bioprinter, one of the most affordable bioprinters on the market at only $10,000. With their desktop bioprinter as a starting point, the Denver University research team is looking to one day provide patients with bioficial tissue and organ replacements.…

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.…

Arcam Expands Capacity for Metal Powders, Adds 3 New Powder Reactors

By Tyler Koslow

When it comes to industrial-grade metal 3D printing equipment, Arcam AB and their Electron Beam Melting technology have been a source of innovation for a number of industrial applications. The Sweden-based metal 3D printing service providers even have a subsidiary company, named Advanced Powders & Coatings (AP&C), to further develop premium metal powders, particularly with titanium-based powders, as well as other alloys such as nickel and niobium. Based in Montreal, Canada, AP&C is exclusively invested in manufacturing metal-based powders, and has become a major supplier within the biomedical and aerospace industries.…

Matterport Raises Awareness of San Francisco’s Homeless Population with 3D Scanning

By Tyler Koslow

When people generally think about the city of San Francisco, their minds likely wander toward the progressive culture, the tech bubble of Silicon Valley, or the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. But the truth of the matter, which was recently highlighted by the amount of money the city poured into hosting Super Bowl 50, is that homelessness has become a major issue in San Francisco.
As technology continues to boom in this culturally driven city, housing prices and, in turn, homelessness is on a constant rise (one recent survey puts the number of homeless people in San Francisco around 7,500).…

Future Engineers Calls on Young Trekkies to Design 3D Printable Eating Tools for Outer Space

By Tyler Koslow

There’s a lot of thought put into the way that astronauts eat when they’re out exploring the confines of our Solar System, implementing special packaging and preparation to ensure that spoilage won’t occur. Even on the International Space Station, astronauts still have to eat three meals a day, and, as we gear up to further explore the surface of our moon and beyond in the near future, we must continue to reinvent the way food is eaten in space. Future Engineers is reaching out to the youngest and brightest minds to help prepare the tools of the future that will help us eat in outer space, asking students from Kindergarten to 12th grade to create a digital 3D model of a non-edible, food-related object to be 3D printed in space in the year 2050.…

Alexis Walsh’s 3D Printed Fashion Hits the Catwalk at NYFW 2016

By Tyler Koslow

The biggest week of the year for New York City fashion is here yet again and already we are seeing the influence that 3D printing is exerting on the runway. Yesterday, we took a look at the nano enhanced and geometrically savvy 3D printed dresses created in collaboration between threeASFOUR and Travis Fitch, and, now, NYC-based fashion designer Alexis Walsh is also showing us what 3D printing technology can do for the fashion industry. Walsh put both her LYSIS Collection and The Spire Dress on display for NYFW, both of which use 3D printing to produce unique shapes and form.…
