3D Printed Aorta Model Treats Aneurysm in 17-Year-Old

By Michael Molitch-Hou

There’s no shortage of stories about patient-specific, 3D printed pre-surgical models saving the lives of patients.  And there’s no shortage of such stories coming from 3D printing service provider and software developer Materialise.  The company is among the first with an entire division and software devoted to 3D printing in the medical field and the company’s HeartPrint services and Mimics Innovation Suite software has, once again, contributed to saving lives a recent heart procedure.
At the Children’s Hospital of Michigan, heart specialists were able to benefit from a 3D printed replica of 17-year-old Ariana Smith’s heart.…

The Jigless Kit helps you fabricate a bicycle at home using 3D printed parts

It’s been a wild and crazy past few years for bicycle design thanks in no small part to the conveniences of digital fabrication that have enabled a new generation of bicycle makers. Aside from being able to customize a variety of accessories and add-ons for existing bicycles, some have taken to creating their own modular solutions for users to be able to create their own bicycle frames from a variety of materials using a series of joint and connector systems that are both easy to fabricate and accessible for many.

Artist Dominic Goldman creates impressive Air Max 1 concrete sculptures using 3D printing

The ever-useful UrbanDictionary.com defines a ‘Sneakerhead’ as “a person who collects limited, rare, OG, or flat out exclusive kicks,”—that is, more generally speaking, a person who simply loves to collect, customize, and wear designer sneakers and shoes. Dominic Goldman, the Executive Creative Director at UK creative agency London Grey, definitely fits the bill.

Ioan Florea Presents New 3D Printed Auto Art at 3D Print Week

By Michael Molitch-Hou

Artist Ioan Florea has turned a lot of heads with his massive sculptures.  Though he has not yet 3D printed an entire car, his fused deposition transfer process has allowed him to construct unique shapes, which he then applies to larger structures.  Now, Florea is revisiting the themes of his most famous work, which saw a Ford Gran Torino coated in gnarly metallic shapes, by giving a Chevy Camaro that famous Florea touch.  The artist’s latest work will be on display at both the New York International Auto Show 2015 from April 1 to the 12 and, then, the Inside 3D Printing Show, as part of 3D Print Week, for April 16 and 17.…

Mechanical engineer creates ingenious Easy Cheese 3D Printer

Every once in awhile, somebody comes by with a completely ingenious idea that utilizes everything we’ve come to love about additive manufacturing...however doesn’t actually operate by any traditional rules. Previously, we’ve seen this with a maker who created g-code for being able to play the Jurassic Park theme song using his 3D printer as well as somebody who hacked their 3D printer to be able to be controlled with an old-school NES video game controller.

Affordable, Fast Gizmo 3D Printer Coming to Kickstarter this Fall

By Andrew Wheeler

Shortly after Silicon Valley’s Carbon 3D printer made waves across the industry with its ultra-fast CLIP technology, an Australian company called Gizmo 3D popped up promising its own extremely fast 3D printer.  I was initially skeptical, and, to some degree, I still have to be.  Sometimes, it’s difficult to write about these printers that I can’t see, use or touch.  I emailed Gizmo 3D to see what kind of information I could get for myself and received a nice little treasure trove of information about the printer, from founder Kobus du Troit about their upcoming Kickstarter campaign and their plans for the future.…

Stratasys Begins New Chapter in the Indian Market with Key Announcements

By Tarun Tampi

With the 3D printing market in emerging economies set to hit the $4.5 billion mark by 2020 (according to AlliedMarketResearch), there is a rapidly solidifying trend, among the major manufacturers and solution providers in 3D printing, of planting a firm foothold in the nascent markets of these geographies. Companies like 3D Systems, Stratasys, EOS, Autodesk, GE, and the like, are quickly establishing their presence in countries like China, India, UAE, Brazil, by opening national offices to focus on these regions, thus growing beyond the usual channel of regional distributors and re-sellers.…

Vorm Vrij’s Dual Clay Extruder Explores the Freedom of Form

By Davide Sher

The Dutch phrase “Vorm Vrij” means Free Form, as in the capability that 3D printing has for creating any kind of shape. Dutch start-up Vorm Vrij wants to give 3D printing even more freedom through their LUTUM family of clay-based 3D printers, which replace plastic filament with more durable ceramics (once they are sintered in an oven) and then further expand this possibility through a dual ceramics extrusion system, or dual “clay struder”.
Marlieke and Yao, the designer duo that created the LUTUM and founded Vorm Vrij, spent the first part of their lives learning about design processes and exploring Maghreb culture.…
