Poppy was born from the desires of groups like INRIA (French Institute for Research in Computer Science and Automation) and Génération Robots to democratize and popularize robotics research by developing a fully open source robot. The idea was to make the various components of the Poppy robot (hardware, software, mechanical parts) available to the public on a single platform, so that everyone can create their own robot. With the Poppy project , everything is open source— its various components can be modified and rearranged as users see fit
We spoke with a leading 3D printing / additive manufacturing consulting company to determine the questions industry asks about the technology.
This past week was a big one in the 3D printing world, here’s a quick recap on some of the stories we prefered… A 3D Printed prosthesis for paralysed hands The last months have seen a huge expansion of 3D printed prostheses. Thanks to initiatives like e-Nable or Robohand Project, people from all over the world can now enjoy the use of both of their hands

3D printers and printing service websites cannot run without programmers and engineers. They provide the crucial link between human needs and machine capabilities, and make it possible to use use our API , order from our website, and ship orders across the world. What does an engineer or a programmer look like in the 3D printing field
Are you a software developer in search of new frontiers?
Remember the cassette tape? Back in the day, countless romantics created the first mixtapes with nothing but a tape player and good taste
A new Android app permits children (and adults) to create 3D robot models suitable for 3D printing with an unusual approach.
The three MIT graduates behind Rest Devices used to spend their days working on systems for solar panels and combustion chambers for spacecraft. When the co-founders formed their start-up, they decided to tackle a problem closer to home: perfecting the baby monitor.
