We were able to take a closer look at Inkbit’s new 3D print production system.
An interesting application of several 3D technologies took place in London recently.
Formlabs announced a new castable resin today, marking yet another new material in their product catalog.
This week’s question is about 3D printed candles.
Researchers have found a way to produce 3D media for bacterial cultures using 3D printing that uses cellulose as the material.
A Chinese company is producing plug-compatible materials for certain 3D Systems 3D printers. But should you use these materials?
Formlabs announced they’re now shipping a new castable wax resin.
Solidscape announced a powerful new 3D printer designed for jewelers.
Formlabs has published a method of coloring 3D prints that I hadn’t seen previously.
Wax 3D printing is a specialty focus within the world of 3D printing and now there’s a powerful new 3D printer for wax casting applications.
Italian firm DWS has been manufacturing vat photopolymerization 3D printers since 2005, first with the name Next Factory, and then as Digital Wax Systems (DWS) starting in 2007.
Casting is a way some 3D print operators transform their fragile plastic prints into more durable materials, like metal. But what is the best 3D print material to do this?
Solidscape claims they hold some 75% of the 3D printing market for jewelers.
We’re starting to observe a collision between the lowering prices of commercial 3D print gear with the rising prices of increasingly more capable personal 3D printers. Today only a few thousand dollars separate the two. One example of a commercial unit that’s priced very effectively is the Asiga Pico, a small volume resin-based 3D printer. … Continue reading The Asiga Pico 3D Printer
We ran across an interesting project that’s attempting to create a system for 3D printing metal at very low cost. The idea is to do for metal manufacturing what was done for plastic manufacturing with current open source 3D printers. The project, by Andreas Bastian, is entitled “An Open Source Selective Laser Sintering 3D… Continue reading Open Source Metal 3D Printing
Solidscape, Inc. announced the launch of the 3ZPRO 3D printer for direct manufacturing of wax patterns. With one-touch simplicity, the fully automated 3ZPRO printer brings the power of high-precision 3D printing to the office desktop and retail environments. Read More at Engineering.com
