Charles R. Goulding and Joseph Castine examine a new technology for recycling thermoplastics.
Modix announced another large-format 3D printer; the new Big-120Z can 3D print objects 1200mm tall.
Tritone announced a revolutionary 3D printing process called “MoldJet” that 3D prints molds and casts objects during the 3D printing process.
A bizarre new 3D printing process called Roll Powder Sintering could be the fastest and cheapest way to 3D print metal, ceramic and thermoplastic materials. We found out how it works.
Robot Factory just announced a new continuous belt 3D printer that can, with the right options, reach high temperatures, enabling 3D printing of engineering materials like PEEK and ULTEM.
There’s a huge large format 3D printer to be released next year, the massive Modix MAMA 3D printer, which comes at a fantastically low price due to a very unusual approach.
Goofoo is a China-based manufacturer of good quality 3D printers available at low prices. We took a look at some of their models.
The powerful DeltiQ 2 3D Printer from TRILAB includes a surprise extrusion system that allows easy 3D printing of flexible material.
Is it really possible to produce your own 3D printer filaments? 3devo seems to have figured out not only the hardware to do so, but also the process.
HP and Matsuura? Some 3D printer manufacturers partner with other 3D printer manufacturers, but why?
Prusa Research announced a brand new desktop 3D printer, the Original Prusa MINI. Its surprisingly low price will enable almost anyone to obtain a quality 3D printer.
A new, powerful open source 3D printer, the Nautilus, is able to 3D print in many engineering materials, including carbon fiber, nylon, flexible, and more.
AddiFab has produced a new 3D printing process that can bridge the gap between 3D printers and injection molding.
Why would Stratasys invest so much in Xaar? Our thoughts lead directly to Stratasys’ new product strategy, and it’s not like their previous products at all.
Can you use thermoset materials in an SLS 3D printer? Not until just now: researchers from Tiger Coatings have developed a thermoset powder that makes much stronger objects.
This week’s selection is “Introduction to Polymers” by Robert J. Young and Peter A. Lovell.
Can you reuse thermoset plastics? It turns out there is a way, just discovered by researchers. This could enable future use of recyclable 3D printer resins.
After an interesting discussion with Objectify, my thoughts on 3D print service regionality have changed.
I’m reading a paper on the development of thermoelectric polymers, and wondering about its applicability to 3D printing.
In the desktop 3D printing community, polylactic acid (PLA) is easily one of the most popular plastics.
