You may have been pondering the exact purpose of 3D food printing, especially when you see the foods that have been 3D printed so far. It’s mainly goop stuffed into a syringe and squirted into the shape of a star or something.
Airbus is actively exploring the many potential applications of 3D technology including on tooling, flying parts, spare parts and more.
The Concorde supersonic airliner's magnificent past and role in civil aviation history will be relived with permanent display of one of the first aircraft built in Toulouse, France -- designated MSN1 -- at the Airbus-supported Aeroscopia museum site at Toulouse-Blagnac Airport. This video clip highlights MSN1's ground transfer performed on 14 March 2014.
The 3D printer market has now emerged from garages and is quickly becoming an industry to watch. Newer 3D printing technologies have now been used to create every thing from houses to dresses.
As the market for 3D-printed goods begins to grow and evolve, the money being invested into the industry will soon begin to grow at an impressive rate.
Market research firm Canalys today released a report predicting that revenues taken in by the 3D printing market will rise to $16.2 billion by the year 2018. This is a significant rise from the estimated $2.5 billion the industry is estimated to have taken in during 2013 as well as the predicted $3.8 billion the industry is predicted to earn this year – an annual growth rate of over 45% for the overall segment.
Right now print-to-order services by 3D printing companies represent a large portion of the 3D printing market. Canalys expects this to remain the status-quo in the coming years as more 3D printing companies pop up, offering clients large and small the low-cost custom building that 3D printers can offer.
This reality will also benefit customers who need custom products produced locally, lowering the wastes and distribution costs associated with traditional long-distance manufacturing orders.
By now most of us are used to streaming or downloading any music we want to listen to. Whether it be Spotify, iTunes or Pandora, there is no inherent need for physical items to get your favorite tunes.
Brooklyn designer Francis Bitonti talks about his Bristle Dress, made on a MakerBot Replicator 2 Desktop 3D Printer. MakerBot goes behind the scenes at the photo session where model Ica Paru wore the Bristle Dress for Bitonti for the first time.
Continuing with the Dreambox Emergence’s purpose of using the 3D printing technologies to bring easy solutions for underdeveloped and rural communities, I’m glad to present the “3D Printable Gardening Tool System”.
This multiple choice gardening tool consists of a generic handle and a bunch of different tools including a trowel, a rake, a seeder, etc
Notice that this is a work-in-progress project and the modes will be redesigned after the printing and testing process if necessary.
This will be also a good option for your urban vegetable garden if you have access to a 3D printer.
The stl files are oriented to be ready to print.
If you have any suggestions about new tools or improvements for the existing ones, feel free to comment. All feedback will be appreciated.
Lots of things can happen in 11 minutes. You can grill a nice steak, you can bake a pan of cookies, or you can raise over $400,000 to build an ultra-compact 3D printer that, for a brief period, cost a mere $199.
3D printer manufacturer Omni3D and distributor MTT Polska are using 3D printing to replace the lower beak of an African Penguin at the Warsaw Zoo in Poland.
While we’ve seen the beaks of majestic, soaring birds restored with 3D printing, this may be the first goofy, flightless bird to find a new lease on life with the technology.
he story of an African Penguin, named Blondas, at the Warsaw Zoo may be the first report of an animal aided with a 3D printed prosthesis in Poland.
Though Warsaw Zoo zookeepers are unsure of how the penguin lost its lower beak, they assume it came as the result of a fight or fall.
Without its lower beak, Blondas struggles with eating and drinking and must be hand-fed, meaning that he may not survive without human intervention.
Due to fate or fortuity, 3D printer distributor MTT Polska happened into the zoo one day, with the firm’s representative Bartek Jarkiewicz, saying, “We had gone to the zoo to see if they could use any of our 3D technology, and didn’t know anything about the bird at first. Then they said they had a penguin with a problem and asked if we could come up with a new beak.”
