I’m reading an interesting analysis of how educators could save cash by 3D printing their own learning aids.
When you see the final design of a 3D printer, there have been many decisions made to get it to that state.
A new project in the Czech Republic will produce a small 3D printed house called “Prvok”.
Researchers have developed an unusual metal 3D printing process called SLEDM, which uses LEDs instead of lasers. But could it actually work as defined?
WASP has modified their popular Delta 2040 3D printer to enable 3D printing of high temperature materials like PEEK. But there’s another surprise, too.
What is the key factor for buying 3D printer filament? It is not cost and we tell you why.
Stratasys’ uPrint is one of the classic 3D printers, but these days some operators use it in unusual ways.
A study published in Technologies examines the effect of 3D printed toys, specially at MyMiniFactory.
We knew this was coming, and now it’s here: Ability3D has launched a Kickstarter campaign for their very inexpensive 3D metal printer, the Ability1.
A 3D printing experiment demonstrates how both success and tragedy in the industry.
Rize3D has published a report detailing the often forgotten costs associated with 3D printing that occur AFTER the print is complete.
This month’s community support selection is the RMADS project undertaken by researchers at Newcastle University.
Most filament vendors price their filament by weight: pounds or kilograms, but is cost per pound really indicative of how expensive one filament is vs. another?
ZCorp issued a press release describing the experience of Converse, the footwear manufacturer using ZCorp technology in their design process. The interesting bit is that they’ve stated the savings they’ve found in actual dollars. Here’s the results from the press release: They “can produce a shoe model in two hours, or nearly 30 times… Continue reading 3D Printing Really Is Less Expensive
Shapeways, the innovative 3D printing service announced they’ve lowered the pricing on their most popular print media, “White Strong & Flexible”. It’s now 10% less expensive than before. This means we can order that Neko Woman for only USD$23.76! Erm. Coincidentally, Ponoko also recently reduced (albeit temporarily for 24 hours) the price of some… Continue reading Shapeways Lowers Media Pricing
It’s apparently USD$49, including USD$14 that was “dissolved away” according to a post at the ChiefDelphi forums. Team222badbrad produced these wrenches on a Dimension 1200es, and the discussion contemplated the price of production. Poster Leav asked the inevitable question: “how much would it cost to fill the entire volume of the machine with plastic?… I… Continue reading The Cost of a Wrench
