It’s early in 2024, but later this year we will see a number of corporate collisions in the 3D print industry. What could happen?
I think there could be a problem with 3MF, or at least how software makes use of it.
If you have a 3D printer, you will know that it does break from time to time. But how should you go about fixing it?
I’m reading an extremely interesting and critical post about the 3D printing industry by Alex Huckstepp.
I’m reading an interesting LinkedIn post by Kyle Harvey about additive manufacturing crossing the chasm.
The race to the bottom is over. Or is it?
Caribou appears to be shutting down.
Phase3D’s “Project Fringe” delivers real-time 3D monitoring to 3D printers.
Controversy is rising over a stalled Kickstarter campaign.
I’m beginning to have my doubts about the benefit of “power fail recovery” for FFF 3D printers.
Have you ever hoped your 3D printer would automatically correct errors as it prints? That seems to now be possible.
I’ve been playing with the power recovery feature on some desktop 3D printers, and realized how complex this feature can be.
Readers may recall The Spaghetti Detective. Now it has been rebranded and expanded.
I spoke with 3DQue representatives to find out the latest on their unusual 3D printing technology.
We’ve just heard rumors that Shenzhen-based 3D printer manufacturer ANET has “gone under”. But is this true?
Apparently there have been massive changes at RIZE, and the company no longer appears to be marketing 3D printers.
The SkyersJet Project is developing a partly 3D printed EDF system for RC aircraft, but encountered a spectacular problem during testing.
One of Kickstarter’s more notorious 3D printing campaigns has finally called it quits.

There could be a great deal of unexpected problems in coming months for 3D printer manufacturers.
This week’s selection is “Normal Accidents: Living with High-Risk Technologies” by Charles Perrow.
“Corrections” are negative financial events that are usually associated with the stock market, but could a correct occur in 3D printing?
There might be no stranger name for a 3D print product than the Spaghetti Detective, but it’s not only appropriate, but something that should become popular in 3D printing.
What happens when an expensive metal 3D print fails and no one is around? The Polysense Solutions sensor will detect and alert additive manufacturing operators in real time.
This week’s selection is “To Engineer Is Human: The Role of Failure in Successful Design” by Henry Petroski.
This is an entry in our 3D Print Learning Series, focusing on 3D print concepts.
At the lab we’ve solved a mysterious 3D printing problem that you might also encounter.
The bane of every desktop 3D printer operator is the discovery of a print failure.
This week’s selection is the highly useful “3D Printing Failures: How to Diagnose and Repair All 3D Printing Issues” by Sean Aranda and David Feeney.
Yes, somehow this problem isn’t going away soon: another questionable Kickstarter project to launch a cheap 3D printer has died.
Tiko 3D announced yesterday that they’ve placed the company “on standby”, effectively ending their project.
