Norwegian maker transforms his 3D printer into a PCB making machine

Alongside the fantastic growth of the 3D printing community, making itself seems to be steadily becoming more popular. Perhaps this is in part due to 3D printing itself, or perhaps because parts are becoming cheaper and easier to find than ever before. This growth has only made it more evident that developing PCBs still isn’t easy, but there is a solution – and you already have it on your desktop. For Norwegian maker Arvid Mortensen has developed a clever solution to turn a 3D printer into an etching machine.

Naturebytes’ 3D Printed Kit Help You Catch Two Birds with One Cam

By Davide Sher

In an interview from a few months ago, Arduino’s founder Massimo Banzi told me that it is not enough to just say we want to teach 3D printing in schools. He explained that, first, we need to figure out what we can really teach about and with 3D printing. One thing could be how to use 3D printing, as well as coding and low-cost electronics, to learn about our natural surroundings, and that is what Naturebytes, a UK-based community of conservationists, educators, digital makers and designers, proposes with its Wildlife Cam Kit project.…

A new ink formulation allows you to 3D print objects out of stretchy graphene

A few months ago, we reported on the amazing work being done by a team of scientists from Northwestern University, who have made a great breakthrough in the possibilities of 3D printing graphene structures. This material, as you might now, could be called the holy grail of 3D manufacturing. We’ve already learned that the team from Northwestern University have developed a solution-based 3D printable graphene ink that can be used to make objects multiple centimeters in length. But through a publication, the team led by Ramille Shah has just unveiled a lot more about the potential and limitations of their graphene ink, which amazingly consists of 60 percent graphene (in terms of volume), making up 75 percent of its weight.

Canadian engineer 3D prints a functioning water pump that fits on large water containers

Us addicts of 21rst century manufacturing are on the forefront of what hopefully will be a 3D printing revolution, but even then it might not be so bad to look over our shoulders every now and then. For our predecessors have created some absolutely ingenious (and yet simple) solutions for basic problems that might come in handy every now and then. Especially when electricity stops working or water stops flowing for longer periods of time. What would we do then?

Designer duo 3D prints physical version of Angry Birds

With games increasingly becoming a term for the digital variety, one designer duo reminds us that our futuristic 3D printers can also be used to give physical shape to objects that only exist digitally. They have used their 3D printer to recreate the infamous Angry Birds app as a playable tabletop game, and has graciously shared all of his excellent designs for home use.

Researchers Develop New Method of 3D Printing Heart Models

Heart specialists at Spectrum Health, a consortium of 12 non-profit hospitals in West Michigan announced they’ve successfully 3D printed the first model of a heart that utilizes multiple imaging techniques in a single, detailed print. The hybrid 3D heart model is much more detailed compared to the traditional heart models created with standard imaging techniques. […]

3D Drucker mit Filament-Erkennung – ein smart-hotend Konzept macht das möglich

Die Zeiten, als nur Enthusiasten zu Hause auf selbstgebauten „repraps“ 3-dimensional druckten, sind vorbei. Für relativ kleines Geld ab ca. 500 Euro kann man sich schon einen 3D Drucker leisten. Leider muß man doch sich einiges Wissen aneignen, um mit der pfiffigen Maschine zu brauchbaren Resultaten zukommen. Es gibt viel einzustellen in den mehr als
