Once upon a time, the best thing you could get printed in 24 hours was a roll of film. Thanks to 3D printing, those dark ages are now well and gone. At the University of Sheffield in the U.K., there's even a project underway that could allow you to s
3D Systems has acquired Medical Modeling Inc., a leading provider of personalized surgical treatments and patient specific medical devices, including virtual surgical planning and clinical transfer tools using 3D modeling and printing. This is a com
Alan Meckler (CEO of MediaBistro) talks about the New York Bitcoin Conference and social media - James Babb (End The Fed, WeWontFly.Com) on the 3D printer his daughter won, and the New York Bitcoin Conference he attended with Ernest
A chemical trigger regrows the thymus of a living mouse
Claiming to be the first 'truly consumer' 3D printer, the Micro 3D printer has raised over $1 million
My first article here at Singularity Hub was on a plan to 3D print houses in under 24 hours. What on the surface appeared to be an exciting new idea was, in fact, an exciting old idea recycled in the press every so often but seemingly stuck in PowerP
3D printers are one of the hottest tech products around, but most people use them to make small items. A group of Chinese designers wants to challenge that thinking, with a desert skyscraper project that moves 3D printing onto a massive stage.
In the world of fashion, 3D scanning and printing offer the potential for creating made-to-measure clothing.
A low-cost drone has been built with the help of a 3D printer, media confirm. Engineers from University of Sheffield in the UK have created and tested a low-coast unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) using a new and cheap technique. The aircraft is 1.5m wid
Remember when we thought the food replicators in Star Trek were just science fiction? But then 3D printing came along and started giving us things like chocolate on demand. But what about those of us who want to eat healthier? Enter Foodini, the worl
The most significant skull prosthetic to date
One NASA astronaut launching to the International Space Station in May is ready to 3D print in space.
Cheap chocolate always taste terrible and the fine chocolate always costs a fortune. But thanks to technology, I can now 3D print my own custom bonbons for cheap. Chocabyte is a $99 3D chocolate printer that is going to win me lots of brownie points
Even casual CSI viewers will note that, if all else fails, DNA testing can always help nab the right guy.
It doesn't seem too long ago that 3D-printers were astounding us by churning out cheeky little trinkets or small replacement parts. But the technology has quickly grown to cater for everything from rapid prototyping to slick-looking commercial produc
The assembly line isn’t going away, but 3-D printing is going to reshape how we make cars.
NASA astronaut G. Reid Wiseman is excited about the long term implications of 3D printers in space. Wiseman and the 'Made In Space' printer are scheduled to meet on ISS in Aug. 2014. He spoke at a NASA event on Mar. 19th, 2014.
The owner of a California gun parts store has refused to hand over his list of customers to federal agents. Dimitrios Karras owns Ares Armor in Oceanside, where people can buy various gun pieces to build their own rifle.
As amazing as 3D printers are, they haven't nailed 3D fashion yet. 3D-printed dresses and shoes are still pretty darn uncomfortable to wear mostly because they're made from rock-hard plastic filaments. But that could all change thanks to a new elasti
There are currently millions of plastic milk and water jugs floating around in landfills. And although we can sit them out on the curb for recycling, or re-use them to make things like this awesome igloo, we need more options on what can be done with
Artificial tissue has always lacked a key ingredient: blood vessels. A new 3-D printing technique seems poised to change that.
Aleph Objects, maker of the LulzBot line of 3D printers, recently made the switch to a new facility in Colorado, big enough to meet its expanding production needs and designed to add more injection-molded and laser-cut parts to the printers.
So, how could this project lead to cheaper titanium frames? For one thing, in the laser melting process, there's no waste – all of the titanium alloy powder that isn't fused to make one frame can be reused in another, plus the topological optimizat
The notion of 3D printed biological tissue holds all kinds of possibilities for drug testing and the reparation of damaged cells, though replicating the complexities of human tissue in a lab presents some very big challenges.
Now, the Dutch designer has unveiled his latest breakthrough in liberating digital fabrication from a build platform: As its name suggests, MX3D-Metal can print lines of steel, stainless steel, aluminum, bronze or copper "in mid-air."
When Gabriel was born in August, his father, Manuel Dela Cruz, said everything seemed fine with his new son. It wasn’t until a week after his birth that Gabriel’s parents thought their son’s forehead looked abnormal.
A determined maker without health insurance learns the ropes of 3D printing to make himself a new fingertip.
Hasbro announces an agreement with designer 3D Systems which could revolutionize the toy market for children. Both companies are remaining quiet about the partnership. The agreement may cover manufacture of Hasbro products, or could lead to the first
3D Systems, in collaboration with Ekso Bionics, has created a 3D-printed robotic exoskeleton that has restored the ability to walk in a woman paralyzed from the waist down.
