3DPI.TV – BigRep ONE – the Godzilla of FFF 3D Printing

By 3DPI.TV

This is an FFF 3D printer that has to be seen to garner full comprehension of the scale of it. We’re talking about the BigRep ONE 3D Printer displayed at the recent Inside 3D Printing event in Berlin, boasting an unprecedented working volume of 1.3 cubic meters. To better understand the sheer size of it, here’s Rene Gurka, BigRep’s hands-on investor, standing next to it.
Developed originally as a project by two artists — Lucas and Marcel — over two years, the interest from outsiders has been phenomenal.…

3D printed microfluidic molds used in fight against cancer

A specially designed 3D printed mold used to make microchamber for use in cancer research was revealed this week by Potomac Photonics. In the last 12 months, Potomac has partnered with multiple companies and universities to help them develop and manufacture parts that are being used in both cancer research and therapy.

City X Project Challenges Students with 3D Printing and Alien Planets

By Michael Molitch-Hou

“Humans have just landed on an alien planet and they’ve staked out an area for their first city, City X. They need inventions that solve challenges relating to health, safety, communication, transportation, and more. These inventions are to be created by a vast team of young designers all around Earth.” This is the story that students, aged 8 to 12, are presented with during their three day 3D printing and problem solving workshop, the City X Project. As the City X curriculum is downloaded for free by teachers around the world, classrooms can begin learning critical thinking while they gain new design tools.…

Advanced 3D Printing in New York

By Ariella Brown

There are only four of these 3D printing systems in the world, with two of them in the United States. That one of those two should be in New York is not remarkable. But the fact that it is not in the Big Apple itself, but in Westchester County is somewhat surprising. How did the combination of a Pro Jet 660 3D printer and Artec scanner, which combined carry a 6-figure price tag, end up in Yorktown?
Well, that’s where Billy La Pierre, the second-generation owner of the Clark Funeral Home in Yorktown happens to be located.…

New Meshmixer Update Includes New Pattern Tool & More Direct 3D Printing Options

By Scott J Grunewald

Less than a month since its last update, Meshmixer, the hugely popular 3D sculpting and modelling software, gets another update that includes even more integrated 3D printer workflows.
The coolest of the new features is the “Make Pattern” tool, which allows you to quickly overlay your models with various grids and patterns. The grid seems to conform to your model automatically and has sliders to allow you to adjust the pattern size and thickness. Thanks to the previous updates your new objects can be printed right from within Meshmixer or you can save them as a standard STI file.…

T-Bone Makes Your 3D Printer Meatier

By Michael Molitch-Hou

On Indiegogo right now, there’s a microboard seeking funding that will, if all goes well, help Makers handle their motion control projects — 3D printing, milling, laser cutting, etc. — with more power and efficiency. The T-Bone project just got an added boost from motor and motion control company TRINAMIC Motion Control, which will provide design support and manufacturing expertise to the group of Makers developing the microboard.

As the campaign video (embedded below) explains, 3D printers will usually have something like an 8-bit Arduino microcontroller that is responsible for handling all of the software data, as well as all of the motion control data.…

Stratasys’ Objet 500 Connex3 Comes to Italy & That’s Not All …

By Davide Sher

In the past few months Stratasys has only announced one new industrial 3D printer platform, but it is a big one: the Objet 500 Connex3 is a superior 3D printer that produces objects with multiple materials (including both rubber and rigid) and it can do it in multi-colour. So, when I found out it was going to be at the Eurostampi fair in Parma, Italy only a short hour from where I live in Milan, I just had to go see it.…
