MASSIVit 3D prints 2 meter shark for global campaign against hunting

According to shocking new research, 70 million sharks are killed every year due to illegal and unethical hunting practices, with the population of certain species having dropped as much as 99% in the past four decades alone. However, hoping to use its own massive numbers—that is, the size of its 3D printer’s print bed and high 3D printing speeds— to combat these tragic ones, Israeli 3D printing startup MASSIVit has teamed up with anti-shark hunting campaign Silence of the Sharks to 3D print a two-meter long shark replica to be used in a series of high-profile underwater protests taking place across the globe.

Update: Live on Kickstarter, the 1.75/3 mm All-Metal Hotend from Kai Parthy & ReprapUniverse

By Michael Molitch-Hou

After having transformed the world of desktop 3D printing with his original wood and stone filaments, German inventor Kai Parthy has teamed up with 3D printer manufacturer ReprapUniverse to create a hotend capable of handling all of his specialty materials. On top of that, the 1730 Full Metal Hotend can handle both 1.75 mm and 3 mm filaments with the quick change of a nozzle.

Combining their respective ten years of experience, Kai and ReprapUniverse have created the 1730 Full Metal Hotend to be as versatile as possible for FDM 3D printing. …

Davide Sher’s Top 2015 3D Printing Applications

By Davide Sher

I think that, until the end of 2014, it was still theoretically possible to discuss the top 5 3D printing innovations of the year. Today, I don’t find that possible any longer. There are just way too many things happening in the 3D printing industry and the crazy part is that we are still, really, at the very beginning. Only a couple of years have passed since the mass public discovered that 3D printing exists and, yet, this technology is now at the forefront in just about every industrial, professional, and artisan sector of manufacturing.…
