German industrial 3D printer manufacturer EOS announced the opening of a new Texas operation. What does this suggest?… Read the whole entry… » Here is the original post: Does EOS’s Texas Beachhead Signal A Metal 3D Printing Invasion?
It’s been a couple of years since we first tried out the 3Doodler – a pen that lets you draw in three dimensions using molten plastic that hardens when it comes into contact with the air.
This week, we’re celebrating the large-scale innovation that’s raising the bar for big names in higher education. With over a thousand MakerBot Innovation Centers in schools nationwide, college students everywhere are achieving STEAM related breakthroughs
Two weeks ago, MakerBot announced the Thingiverse Developer Program to invite the community to add new functionalities and services to the largest 3D printing community in the world. We’re excited to announce today that the first two Thing Apps from Mixed Dimensions and 3D Hubs are launching on Thingiverse. MakerBot believes that adding new features and services to Thingiverse will help make 3D printing more accessible for everyone
On this Monday, we’re celebrating milestones in the classroom and the teachers who make it possible. We’ve seen time and again that 3D printing allows students to retain concepts, develop new skills, and bring their ideas to life. Throughout this process, students can achieve their own unique milestones that belong to no one else.
EBM vs DLMS 3D printing technologies There is no escaping the fact that industrial 3D printing with metal is an… Read the whole entry… » See the rest here: A Consideration of EBM versus DMLS Industrial Metal 3D Printing Processes, Part 1

As with its SmartBird , BionicKangaroo and robotic ants , Festo’s Bionic Learning Network has once again looked to the natural world for inspiration during the development of a new 3D printing solution. Rather than gradually forming an object layer by layer like a desktop extruder, the 3D Cocooner works more like a sophisticated robotic version of a CreoPop 3D printing pen , hardening the printed material with UV light as the structure is formed
The latest enterprise-grade 3D printer from Stratasys, the J750 model, is reportedly the first that can print objects with photorealistic color accuracy. In addition, like other premium printers from the same company, it can also print in multiple materials to produce parts that are hard or soft, opaque or transparent, for some rather impressive results
Bringing the world one step closer to having real-life replicators like Star Trek promised, researchers at MIT’s CSAIL lab have developed a new 3D printing technique that allows fully-functional robots to be created in a single print run. Add a motor and battery, and they’re able to walk right out of the 3D printer. Read more… Visit link: This 3D Printer Makes Robots That Can Walk Away as Soon as They’re Done
