Researchers from Chemical Insights and Prusa Research have published reports on 3D printer safety that should be standard reading for all participants.
Nano Dimension Developing New Conductive 3D Print Material
Nano Dimension announced a partnership with XPTL to develop a new conductive ink for their systems that is based on nanoparticles.
Seven 3D Printing Hazards
3D printing is thought to be a relatively safe activity, but is it really?
Could Molecular Crystallization Replace 3D Printing?
New research has shown a method to rapidly produce crystalline objects at the nano scale.
Clean Air: MakerBot’s New Filtration Accessory
MakerBot announced “Clean Air”, a smart filtration accessory for their METHOD X 3D printers.
Could This Be The Best 3D Printer Enclosure?
A new startup is marketing an enclosure kit for small desktop 3D printers, including the popular Prusa models.
A Universal Carrier Ink For Bioprinting
Cellulose fibres and biodegradable nanoparticles were combined by researchers at ETH Zurich to produce a gel that could pave the path for personalized biomaterial implants.
Chasing The Elusive Safe 3D Printer Resin
I’ve been on a bit of a quest to find some truly safe 3D printer resin, and I’m not sure there’s actually such a product.
3D Printer Emissions Are Everywhere
Did you know there are increased levels of 3D printer emissions even at trade shows? We found a measurement to prove this happens.
Xjet Splits 3D Printer Lines
When Xjet first developed their nanoparticle jetting (NPJ) process, they didn’t realize it would split into two different styles. We found out why.
Kora’s Powerful SC-01 3D Printer Safety Enclosure
Need a safety enclosure for your 3D printer? Don’t even know why? Find out more with our look at the Kora SC-01 Safety Cabinet.
Do You Need A 3D Printer Emissions Sensor?
3D printers emit VOCs — volatile organic compounds. Do you need a sensor to detect them? We examine a proposed DIY solution.
3D Printed Magnetic Liquids Could Revolutionize Medicine
Could liquid 3D printed machines exist? It turns out this is possible due to ferric nanoparticle droplets as discovered by Berkeley Lab researchers.
UK’s Health And Safety Executive Looking At 3D Printing
A new report about 3D printing safety has been issued by the UK’s Health and Safety Executive.
The Correct Way To Achieve Zero Emission 3D Prints
I’m quite impressed with Rize’s approach to dealing with 3D printer emissions, and it’s not anything you might expect.
3D Printing Health Risks Identified by UL and Georgia Tech
It’s been known for several years that desktop 3D printers, and presumably any extrusion 3D printer operating in an open environment, can be potentially dangerous.
One Inexpensive Way to Add Some Safety to Your 3D Printer
After publishing our rant about the increasingly important lack of attention paid to safety in 3D printing, we received an interesting tip.
Does ANYONE Care About 3D Printer Emissions?
After reading more scary papers researching 3D printer emissions, I am baffled by the industry’s lack of response.
