Laminated object manufacturing is a method of 3D printing in which layers of plastic or paper are fused together. See original here: What is Laminated Object Manufacturing
The 3D printer market looks set to swell in size over the coming years, as the appeal of 3D printing builds — shifting from being the preserve of makers and hobbyists (and TC’s own John Biggs ), to something that more mainstream consumers and business users feel comfortable dabbling with.
MakerBot® MakerWare™ is the ideal software to drive your MakerBot® Replicator® 3D Printer.
September was awesome! We met lots of 3D printing fans during the different events across the US and Europe. And since it was so great, we wanted to conclude September with a new contest! We partnered with Dassault Systèmes for the launch of their new MOVEin3D contest. It started a week ago and it runs until November the 8th.
FDM printers use a thermoplastic filament, which is heated to its melting point and then extruded, layer by layer, to create a three dimensional object. Read more from the original source: Fused Deposition Modeling: Most Common 3D Printing Method
As a fan of the noble Great Cat and 3D printing , I’m particularly interested in Lionhead , a $1,600 3D printer with built-in scanning facilities. The project, which just hit Kickstarter , is looking for $60,000 to start production of the device
There are sometimes misunderstandings about what’s Sculpteo’s 3D Printing Cloud Engine. So we’ve imagined a new video lo let you know what’s behind this factory of the future. The short clip tells you the story of Emily, the Glucose Sweet Design’s shop owner, who embedded all Sculpteo’s tools on her website
Meet AIO Robotics ‘ Zeus “3D copy device”: a 3D printer, 3D scanner and 3D object faxing machine that’s blasted past its $100,000 Kickstarter funding goal after about a day on the crowdfunding trail. This hybrid box is on a mission to consumerise 3D printing by converging multiple functions and taking away some of the rough, manual edges.
After years of process, US patent number 8,515,826 has been issued to Bryan Norman of KraftWurx fame.
After the monstrous success of 3Doodler, others hope to duplicate their success, including the 3D Printed Pen that replicated much of 3Doodler’s design. Now we see another: swissPen, made by Groupe JL Monnin, based in, of course, Switzerland.
