We’ve seen countless times how the use of 3D printing can lead to pioneering new discoveries in science, and bring about major advances and innovations in sectors like architecture, aviation, and even space travel.
Metropole, an event management and 3D printing company based in Paris, has 3D printed a life-size replica of Corto Maltese, the titular character of Hugo Pratt’s Italian adventure comic Corto Maltese. The 3D printed sea captain was made to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the comic.
An Argentinian woman has been given a new lease on life thanks to a 3D printed trachea implant. The woman, who could not speak or eat comfortably due to complications from peritonitis, says that she is now able to do these normal everyday activities wi…
Russian astronauts aboard the International Space Station (ISS) are preparing to launch Russia’s first 3D printed satellite into space. The Tomsk-TPU-120 satellite was sent to the ISS in March 2016, and will be deployed on August 17, 2017.
Building 8, an innovative research lab operating under Facebook, recently published a patent application it filed for a “modular electromechanical device.” In other words, a modular, multipurpose smartphone. The best part? It could feature a 3D printed chassis.
3D printing has been called the way of the future, and the dawn of a new era in manufacturing – but what about a time capsule of the present? Thanks to an unlikely incident with a common house fly, the Internet is now exploding with conjectures about the possibilities of 3D printing as a 21st century fossilization technique.
If you live near London, you’ve probably heard of the Crossrail initiative. Already several years in the works, this massive expansion of the London underground is rapidly making history: as the first full underground line to be constructed in 3 decades
We all know of the benefits that 3D printing technology can offer and the potential that it has to revolutionize manufacturing and even save lives, but less frequently discussed are the inherent dangers.
A Swedish engineering professor is pioneering the development, design, and manufacture of 3D printed musical instruments.
3D printed cooling cores made by British engineering firm Renishaw have helped jet washer manufacturer Kärcher cut the cooling time of its molding process by 55 percent. Kärcher can now produce more pressure washer casings in a shorter space of time.
