Marijuana 3D Printing

The advent of 3D printing has created an entire world of possibilities for our future. It has transformed medicine, transportation, education, and even kids’ toys. For independent enthusiasts, the limitless creativity is shared through marketplaces for 3D printer blueprints. These days, local libraries across the world stock at least one 3D printer for their community […]

3D Tensegrity Objects

On the heels of an already-impressive evolution in 3D printing technology, a Georgia Tech research team is using the Tensegrity method to shape-shift 3D objects from their flattened version to their real-world size. Designed to maximize space on NASA shuttle missions, the team uses hot water at 149-degrees to initiate the transformation from collapsed structure […]

Kodama High-Quality 3D Printing

Kodama, the San Francisco-based start-up and creator of the Trinus 3D printer, has designed its next-generation model and it’s attracting some much-deserved attention. Introducing Obsidian – the first 3D printer under $100 that produces high-quality professional-grade prints.

3D Printed 4-Legged Robot

Researchers at the University of California – San Diego have tapped into the powers of 3D printing to create a soft four-legged robot that can walk over difficult terrain. Whether it’s climbing over small rocks or crawling through confined spaces, the tethered robot is “designed to capture sensor readings in dangerous environments.”

Infrared 3D scanner

From 3D characters in video games to detailed scans of the human ear, Infrared or “Structured Light” 3D scanning has numerous applications. Using projected light and a camera system to “shoot light on the surface of any object,” Infrared scanners can recreate an object’s surface geometry. The most successful commercial 3D scanners are the one’s […]

Although 3D printing has become “newest thing” in industrial manufacturing, it has yet to successfully crossover into wearable technology. So leave it to the always-innovative Adidas to find a revolutionary process called Digital Light Synthesis (DLS) to make their already-impressive Futurecraft 3D training sneaker all the more amazing. With the hopes of producing 100,000 of […]

Whether it’s building a skyscraper in Dubai or tissue engineering a prosthetic ear in Australia, 3D printing has been driving innovation across countless sectors. From the architects at Cazza Construction retrofitting a crane with 3D printing technology to researchers at Queensland University bioprinting cartilage, the ability to create precise 3D model prototypes in a matter […]

Already being used in China to mass produce apartment complexes, 3D printing technology is changing the way people think about housing and construction. Taking up few thousand feet, Dubai – with the help of Cazza Construction – unveiled its plans to “build the world’s first 3D printed skyscraper.”
