We’ve been writing about 3D printing for over eight years now, and 2015 may have been the most tumultuous and amazing year yet seen. Let’s look at what happened.
We managed to test some really amazing 3D printer filament from newcomer Feelcolor.
The “1730 Full Metal Hotend” from ReprapUniverse in The Netherlands is able to handle two different filament diameters.
A new metal alloy developed by UCLA researchers looks quite promising, particularly for aerospace use, but can it be 3D printed?
We’re checking out a new 3D print service, Printaworld, which boasts of a 100+ unit 3D printer “farm”.
The ability to create detailed 3D scans of practically anything is in everyone’s hands and most people don’t realize it.
Yesterday 3D Systems announced not only the demise of The Cube, but also their entire consumer brand, Cubify. What are the implications of this?
We’re reading a curious story from Ticker Report that highlights someone selling their stake in Stratasys. Is this important? We think not.
In retrospect perhaps not the most surprising development, 3D printing giant 3D Systems has discontinued the Cube, their flagship consumer 3D printer option. Why did this happen?
Gartner 3D printing analyst and Fabbaloo friend Pete Basiliere visited Stratasys’ HQ to find out more about their strategy going forward.
Somehow we totally missed this, and perhaps you did too: Stratasys has rebranded with a new logo!
This week’s selection is the amazingly lifelike “Robot Drinky” by Korea-based Euchan Park.
France’s postal service, La Poste just set up a comprehensive 3D model repository to power their network of 3D printers.
We’re reading an interesting report from The Expert Institute where they describe the increasing use of 3D prints in court.
A new iOS app for easily creating sketch-based 3D models appeared: uMake. But we’re not sure it’s best for 3D printing.
One of the ongoing annoyances with filament-based 3D printing is the lack of suitable colors for prints. Now that may change with Colorilab’s massive color set.
We’ve reported on 3D printing concrete before, but 2016 looks to be the year that will finally see this production technique in widespread use.
One of the most well-known 3D print artists is Joshua Harker, who has produced a number of incredible 3D prints that we’re sure you’ve seen.
Startup BioInspiration launched their line of biodegradable 3D printer filaments on Kickstarter a while ago, but now they’ve figured out how to repaint objects printed with their materials.
Netherlands-based Additive Industries has found a willing tester for their massive metal 3D printing system, the MetalFAB1.
