Update: Bocusini Plug & Play Food 3D Printer Now Cooking on Kickstarter

By Michael Molitch-Hou

With a clock counting down the time until their Kickstarter launches (currently set at 19 hours to go), Print2Taste has already launched the site for their Bocusini food 3D printer.  We covered the Bocusini just a couple of weeks ago, foreshadowing the impending crowdfunding campaign, and, now that the food printer’s site is live, 3DPI has been given access to the Kickstarter ahead of time (though some details may change) so that we can provide you with all of the details of what looks to be a pretty delicious food printer (and more).…

Update: Ultimaker Unveils Big, Small and Huge 3D Printing News at CES

By Davide Sher

As a norm, we do not usually write up articles on teaser videos on news that will be announced within hours. For Ultimaker, this time we have to make an exception. The Dutch company just released a fairly explicit teaser trailer with an Ultimaker 2 sided by a larger and a smaller machine.

Given the high portability of an Ultimaker 2 it seems safe to say that the smaller system will be a truly “mobile” 3D printer, while a larger system boasting the same reliability and print quality is certain to be a game changer at a semi-professional and even professional level.…

Does This Look Right To You? CHGT & More Suspicious 3D Printing Press Releases (Part 1)

By Andrew Wheeler

Changing Technologies Inc., this weekend has added yet another dubious press release to a growing portfolio of released PR fluff with absolutely zero substance or evidence of an actual company.  Released through Business Wire, the company entitled this one, “CHGT Adds Replacement Toys and Toy Parts to 3D Printing Retail Portal.”  Sounds plausible, right? We’ve been pretty skeptical of this company so far, and, they piqued my curiosity, so I have been doing some digging, and I think I’ve pretty much figured them out.…

11 Food 3D Printers to Feed the Future

By Michael Molitch-Hou

The future is a terrifying and/or wonderful place, according to most movies. What will we see? What will we do? What will we eat? Ever since the microwave taught us that not everything we eat has to come directly from nature, we’ve been inventing new ways of preparing foods and objects that Hostess tells us are food. Now that 3D printing has the world enamored, it’s natural that the technology would be used to make food and to make making food easier, or at least weirder.…

‘TITAN American Built’ Wants to Rebuild America with 3D Printing

By Michael Molitch-Hou

3D printing has made it to the world of TV infotainment, with MAVTV, the one and only network devoted to an “action-oriented family audience”, having launched TITAN American Built, a series about machine shop owner Titan Gilroy’s attempt to re-shore US manufacturing. The show sees Gilroy demonstrate America’s manufacturing capabilities with high-tech CNC and 3D printing technology.
Through work with his machine shop, Titan American MFG, Gilroy works with his team to create intricate parts using, along with other equipment, a Fortus 250mc 3D printer from Stratasys, through US-reseller, GoEngineer.  The show’s host describes how 3D printing was featured in the first episode of the series, “Episode one highlights our shop using 3D printing in order to manufacture thermal night vision scopes for IR Defense – it’s amazing.…

Welcome Aboard: The First 3D Printer in Space Docks the ISS

By Michael Molitch-Hou

It’s official! A 3D printer has made it into space! Last weekend, the uncrewed Dragon spacecraft from Space X was loaded up with 5,000 pounds of cargo, including one piece of baggage precious to those in the 3D printing community: the Made In Space Zero G Printer, a 3D printer specifically designed to operate in the absence of gravity. And, after a bit of a weather-related delay, the Dragon Capsule was launched from Cape Canaveral, Florida into the depths of space atop the Falcon 9 rocket on September 21, 2014 at 1:52 AM EDT:

Those following the story waited with baited breath until, after a two day journey, the Dragon Capsule arrived at the International Space Station on September 23, marking the first time that astronauts would be able to 3D print in space.…
