Learning how to model for 3D print? Creating a realistic looking chess piece can seem like a simple task but it poses a few fun challenges that can be tackled with basic Blender techniques.
The gifting season may have just ended, but at Sculpteo we’re offering a treat anyway. We’re launching three new precious metal finishes: pink gold, white rhodium and black rhodium! Now all you need is an inspired design for jewelry and you’ll have a custom piece (or even the means to start your own business). Brass and silver just got even better
If you’re a professional designer that’s looking to take your manufacturing and prototyping into the 3rd dimension through Autodesk Inventor, we’ve put together the tutorial for you. In Sculpteo’s continuing series of 3D modeling tutorials, the next on the list is Autodesk’s Inventor
Dear i.materialise community, Today is the first day of a new chapter in my life, starting as i.materialise’s new Community Manager. My name is Fabian Backer, I come from Berlin, Germany, I’m 26 years old and I recently graduated with a degree in Business Management from the Louvain School of Management in Belgium. I’ve always been passionate about designing, blogging, social media and communication
We noticed several rather unusual 3D printing filaments are now available for you to try out.
We’ve written previously of NASA’s incredible 3D printing experiment taking place on the International Space Station. Now we’ve seen a real example of how the technology should work. The orbital 3D printer was designed by startup Made In Space, who, over the course of several years developed a plastic filament-based 3D printer capable of microgravity operations
Contrary to popular belief, there’s not a one-size-fits-all approach to 3D printing.
The scientists at Impossible Objects have developed a unique 3D printing process, and it appears the market like it: they were just awarded USD$2.8M.
TNO has been developing some unique 3D printing technologies that we may see in new machines soon.
