The 3D Printing Business Directory: Compiling Everything 3D Printing into One List

By Tyler Koslow

3D printing companies and service providers are exponentially popping up all around the world in all different shapes and styles (and prices, too!). Whether it’s through software or hardware, consumer or industrial, FDM or SLS, one of the things that all of the world’s 3D printing companies certainly share is their involvement in a revolutionary technology. But as 3D printing companies and products continue to expand internationally, they are becoming increasingly spread out and hard to keep track of. The 3D Printing Business Directory, founded by Davide Sher, is here to compile all of these related companies and service providers into a one clear and concise business directory.…

Bioprinting & More Possible with Hyrel 3D’s New Line of Syringe Print Heads

By Michael Molitch-Hou

In addition to university labs, Hyrel 3D has been one of the original pioneers of paste extrusion for 3D printing.  Long before the Discov3ry extruder from Structur3D, Hyrel was 3D printing with Play-Doh, clay, and Sugru. Now, the Georgia-based company has announced an entirely new line of extruders that launches Hyrel from desktop engineering into the world of desktop bioengineering.

Working with “research teams on five continents”, Hyrel has developed the Syringe Delivery System (SDS) line of extruders, designed to allow users to 3D print using easily filled, swapped, and stored syringes. …

3D Insumos Takes Buenos Aires Makerspaces Online with Nube3D

By Davide Sher

The fourth appointment on my Argentinian visit was with David Cimino, founder and CEO at 3D Insumos. I had learned just the day before that “Insumos” in Spanish means “supplies”, so I figured out that David’s company, founded in 2012, mostly manufactures and sells filaments and parts for 3D printers (under the brand Maker Parts). That is true, but it is only the tip of the iceberg.

The company also manufacturers Chimak brand 3D printers (which come in many sizes), distributes M3D 3D printers, and it recently launched Nube3D.com, a cloud platform for distributed manufacturing.…

COROpad Lays Strong Foundation for CORO Tech’s 3D Printing Business

By Davide Sher

Although they had launched their 3D printer back in 2014, we have never covered Poland-based CORO Technologies on 3DPI in the past. They built the Roller Printer delta system (a new version is on the way soon) and they offer the custom-built Othie range of cartesian 3D printers. However, as I often suggest, one way to draw attention in the crowded desktop 3D printer market is to offer something that no one else (or, at least, very few other companies) offer.…

Delta 3D Printers Get Three Heads Thanks to a Little H20

By Michael Molitch-Hou

Those die-hard fans of delta 3D printers praise the speed and accuracy of their machines, due to the reduced weight and complexity of the moving parts. But managing to print with multiple filaments can prove difficult, given the small space necessitated by the build area.  Plus, any additional weight added to the extruder slows down the printhead, defeating part of the purpose for owning a delta in the first place.  Fortunately, Mathias Dragosits has been working on a solution, inventing the Wim3rl printhead: a watercooled printhead with three hotends for multiple filaments.…

New 3D Printing Process Rides on Ultrasonic Waves

By Tyler Koslow

Although 3D printing technology has, in one way or another, found a way to conquer the production of many material goods, 3D printing industrial-quality composite materials is not the easiest process. These composites, made up of a combination of multiple physically or chemically different materials, are responsible for the production of a lot of goods, from concrete to golf clubs, tennis rackets to aircraft components. Now, a team of engineers from the University of Bristol have brought us one step closer to 3D printing in high-grade composite materials with a completely new 3D printing process, which utilizes a newly implemented ultrasonic wave system.…

Meet Noah, Kentstrapper’s New 3D Printing Dongle

By Michael Molitch-Hou

As the world of desktop 3D printing transitions from those first generation machines, designed to demonstrate low-cost 3D printing as a proof of concept, to second gen systems that include all of the bells and whistles associated with office equipment, like WiFi and task monitoring, a number of companies have introduced their own solutions to upgrade those first generation printers to have greater capabilities. Following the lead of such firms as Printr, AstroPrint, and Sharebot, Italy’s Kentstrapper has just launched a Kickstarter campaign for their own dongle, Noah.…

KinomaJS Streamlines AstroPrint for Marvell’s 3D Printing Processors

By Michael Molitch-Hou

Beginning as a forked version of OctoPrint, AstroPrint has since established itself as a solution for printer users and manufacturers to give 3D printer users untethered, remote control over their machines. Now, just in time for CES, they have found themselves a big partner in electronics company Marvell. In less than two months time, AstroPrint worked with the open source Kinoma division of Marvell Semiconductor to create a custom solution for Marvell’s 3D printer hardware.

In a recent blog post, Kinoma details how AstroPrint was able to quickly implement the open source KinomaJS software platform to develop a new version of their onboard and mobile print management solution. …

MatterHackers Introduces New MatterControl for Wireless 3D Printing at CES 2016

By Michael Molitch-Hou

At CES 2016, MatterHackers is showcasing their latest 3D printer controller, the MatterControl T10.  An upgrade from the previous MatterControl Touch (T7), the T10 brings several improvements for 3D printer owners still relying on tethered 3D printers, making it the ideal accessory for RepRap owners and owners of numerous new machines that have yet to install WiFi or onboard controls.

MatterControl T10 improves upon its predecessor with a larger, higher resolution screen, growing from 7” to 10.6” with 1366 x 720 resolution. …

Open Edge Launches Kickstarter for Design-It-Yourself Mondrian 3.0 3D Printer

By Tyler Koslow

Among the first companies in France to create a 3D printer, Open Edge is no stranger to this booming technology. When they first started their endeavors in 2013, Open Edge worked in tandem with the open source advocates of RepRap, helping to create the FoldaRap, which was the world’s first foldable 3D printer. The French startup has drawn a lot of inspiration from RepRap, putting a keen focus on keeping their 3D printers both open source and self-replicating. Following suit with their belief that 3D printers should be openly modifiable, Open Edge has just launched a Kickstarter for their new customizable 3D printer, the Mondrian 3.0.…
