These are exciting times for those looking to get into digital fabrication, as the technology really is starting to trickle down. With MakerBot the go-to for desktop 3D printing and ShopBot cornering the shop-based prototyping and production market, Inventables reckons there’s room for something in-between: A machine it’s calling Carvey , designed by Scott Wilson and MNML

3D printers are the appliance of choice for a new generation of makers keen to rapidly prototype straight from their computer. But many materials with which 3D printers can produce items have limitations, and there are others that they can’t work with at all. Enter Carvey – a working prototype of a desktop mounted, rapid-modelling, 3D carving device that can sculpt wood, plastic, and metal into almost any object that you care to design… Continue Reading Carvey: The desktop 3D carving machine Section: Electronics Tags: 3D Printers , 3D Printing , CNC , Desktop , Kickstarter Related Articles: The Filabot recycles scrap plastic into inexpensive 3D printing filaments ProJet 4500 3D printer creates multi-colored plastic items Handibot brings portability and apps to CNC fabrication Shapeways introduces a soft plastic for 3D printing “Felting printer” creates soft 3D-printed teddy bears US$15k uPrint personal 3-D printer brings rapid prototyping to the desktop See original here: Carvey: The desktop 3D carving machine
A need to address a lack of housing for the globe’s growing population has turned up some eye-catching efforts, blending creative architecture with new, sustainable technologies . And it is increasingly looking like 3D printing could have a role to play. Italian firm Wasp is the latest to explore the potential of additive manufacturing in this area, developing a super-sized 3D printer capable of producing low-cost housing made from mud… Continue Reading Wasp’s 3D printers produce low-cost houses made from mud Section: Architecture Tags: 3D Printing , Construction , House , Maker Faire , Sustainable Related Articles: Chinese company uses 3D printing to build 10 houses in a day AeroVironment receives funding for perch-and-stare micro-UAV BATMAV System with AeroVironment’s Wasp III Micro Air Vehicle achieves full rate production The NUR Expedio Revolution mega-sized Inkjet printer IKEA-inspired MM1 looks to future-proof 3D printing Stratasys creates world’s first color multi-material 3D printer Read the rest here: Wasp’s 3D printers produce low-cost houses made from mud All Recipes Free
