New Copyright Protected 3D Printing Marketplace for Toys

3D printing designers are rapidly entering the online world, and websites such as Shapeways, 3DLT and Amazon serve as platforms to sell their designs. Toys 3D designers, however, did not have a marketplace for themselves yet and that’s why ToyFabb launched this week. ToyFabb is a copyright protected marketplace, where 3D printing artists can sell […]

3D-gedrucktes „Obst“

In Großbritannien hat ein Unternehmen einen 3D-Drucker entwickelt, mit welchem Obst gedruckt werden kann. Das Designstudio aus Cambridge mit dem Namen Dovetailed nutzt dazu eine Technik aus der Molekularküche.

Der 3D-Frucht-Drucker kombiniert dazu Tropfen mit verschiedenen Aromen und druckt Obst in allen möglichen Formen und Größen. So zum Beispiel einen Apfel oder auch eine Birne. Weil sich neben Formen und Größen auch der Geschmack individuell bestimmen lässt, ist es mit dem 3D-Obst-Drucker möglich, auch vollkommen neues, eigenes Obst zu erfinden und auszudrucken.

Es heißt, dass auch Bediener des Druckers ohne Kenntnisse der Molekularküche ihre individuellen Früchte produzieren können sollen. Nach Angaben der Entwickler biete der 3D-Obst-Drucker die Option des „frischen On-Demand-Obsts“.

Bei der Tech Food Hack in Cambridge, die von Microsoft Research Cambridge zusammen mit dem Unternehmen Dovetailed veranstaltet wurde, wurde diesen Monat der 3D-Obst-Drucker vorgestellt.

Disney’s Big Hero 6 Flashes 3D Metal Printing for Robotic Armour

By Michael Molitch-Hou

Big Hero 6 is coming and it’s going to feature, based on the trailer below, a pudgy, cute robot and 3D printing. In the video, we see the film’s protagonist, Hiro Hamada, being a pure tech whiz, designing the armour for his robot, Baymax, on a touchscreen tablet, using what looks like a relatively simple (but fictional) 3D modeling app, and clicking a ‘print’ icon (even though it looks a little more like a ‘translate’ icon). Then, with some added Disney flair, we’re treated to what looks like a fictional form of direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) 3D printing his shiny red armour!…

3DPI.TV – 3D Knitting for Wearable Technology

By 3DPI.TV

3D printed wearables are shifting from the plastic pieces of questionable comfort worn by runway models to the soft sorts of materials that everyday consumers might actually have an interest in. This year, we’ve already seen a 3D knitting machine and a company working on a 3D printing loom. Along with the work of Dutch designer Borre Akkersdijk, 3D printed clothing may actually become an actuality this year. And where there is 3D printed clothing there is wearable technology.
Akkersdijk believes that the current generation of wearable technology is not so much something you wear as something you attach to yourself.…
