ZBrush is hands down the most popular and powerful digital sculpting software out there. That’s why this program is mainly used for designing figurines, sculptures, game characters, or any other design that needs an organic shape. Some users have trouble turning these 3D models into 3D prints – and that’s where we come in! In this hands-on tutorial we will show you step-by-step how you can prepare your ZBrush models for 3D printing
Learning 3D design software can be daunting for those who are just getting started with 3D printing. Luckily, there are a range of software solutions available that make it easy to take the first steps. 3D Slash is one of them and they just launched their first app on Thingiverse , allowing anyone to easily customize or create Things right within Thingiverse

A new method of 3D printing could allow for custom printing of metal components for electronics, medical devices, and more.
With a still unannounced price and a footprint the size of a washing machine (as The BBC handily points out), the Jet Fusion 3D 4200 is big and (most likely) expensive. But HP is also positioning the big ole industrial machine as an entry into a new paradigm for 3D printing, calling it, “the world’s first production-ready 3D printing system.” Other giants in the space like… Read More
In the two years since HP announced it was entering the 3D printing space speculation arose regarding what exactly the PC giant would launch? Home 3D printers for the masses? All-in-one manufacturing machines?
Researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have developed a method for 3D printing artificial hair, allowing them to print everything from paintbrushes to fake fur (+ movie).
