You would think that if you’ve seen one 3D printed Star Wars BB-8, you’d have seen them all. But that couldn’t be farther from the truth—after all, the Dark Side is in the details. From adorable 3Doodled BB-8 heads to full-scale replicas, there’s a 3D printed BB-8 for every level of fan and maker.
Researchers from Northwestern University have used 3D printing to develop a novel lens that picks up terahertz frequencies—those occupying a middle ground between microwaves and infrared light waves. It is hoped that the lens could help scientists to better understand the mysterious terahertz waves.
Shapeways has revealed its prop-building role in the Game of Thrones season six opener, which aired Sunday night on HBO.

We all know that Paris is the city of Lights and Amsterdam is the city of Bikes… but when it comes to 3D printing, where would one go? According to entrepreneurs, researchers and technologists at the Hanover Trade Fair 2016, the answer is Dresden, which is now positioning itself as Europe’s 3D print capital and a leader in additive manufacturing materials, processes and industrial production.
Metal 3D printing is currently being used for the development of some of the most exciting 3D printed parts around, from airplane engine components to space-bound satellites. But the reality is that metal 3D printing encompasses a very diverse group of technologies that are piled together, even though they use different techniques for forging different sources of metal (powders, wires or even sheets) together. Each, in turn, is suitable for different applications.
