MINI cars personalised with 3D printed parts – powered by Twikit

Advanced car personalization running on Twikbot® Car personalization has been popular ever since. In which level it was applied depended on many factors like the availability of options from the car manufacturer itself or the artistic skills of some of its customers. Today, car manufacturers already offer a wide range of pre-defined options. In the […]

3D printers have ‘fingerprints,’ a discovery that could help trace 3D-printed guns

Like fingerprints, no 3D printer is exactly the same. That’s the takeaway from a new study that describes what’s believed to be the first accurate method for tracing a 3D-printed object to the machine it came from. The advancement could help law enforcement and intelligence agencies track the origin of 3D-printed guns, counterfeit products and […]

3D-printed public housing unveiled in France

NANTES, France (Reuters) – Researchers have unveiled what they billed as the world’s first 3D-printed house to serve as a home in the French city of Nantes, with the first tenants due to move in by June. Academics at the University of Nantes who led the project said it was the first house built in […]

Berkeley Lab Scientists Print All-Liquid 3-D Structures

Scientists from the Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have developed a way to print 3-D structures composed entirely of liquids. Using a modified 3-D printer, they injected threads of water into silicone oil — sculpting tubes made of one liquid within another liquid. They envision their all-liquid material could be used […]

India: Yeah, we would like to 3D-print igloos on the Moon

The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is planning to build igloos on the Moon with a view to creating an Antarctica-like outpost. Dr Jitendra Singh of the Department of Atomic Energy and Department of Space gave the response to a question (PDF) asked in the Indian Parliament by Shri Suman Balka last week, a member […]

It Took Almost 10 Days to 3D-Print This Giant Millennium Falcon Model

Typically, when we see 3D-printed replicas as large as this 2.3-foot long Millennium Falcon, they’re assembled from hundreds of smaller 3D-printed parts. But YouTube’s stonefx83 didn’t want to go to all that trouble, so he simply scaled up Andrew Askedall’s 3D model of the Falcon, and then let his printer run for over nine days […]

You could soon be manufacturing your own drugs—thanks to 3D printing

Forget those long lines at the pharmacy: Someday soon, you might be making your own medicines at home. That’s because researchers have tailored a 3D printer to synthesize pharmaceuticals and other chemicals from simple, widely available starting compounds fed into a series of water bottle–size reactors. The work, they say, could digitize chemistry, allowing users […]

Rs 500, 10 minutes, and you have access to billion Aadhaar (Indian social security) details

It took just Rs 500, paid through Paytm, and 10 minutes in which an “agent” of the group running the racket created a “gateway” for this correspondent and gave a login ID and password. Lo and behold, you could enter any Aadhaar number in the portal, and instantly get all particulars that an individual may […]

Scientists’ sneaky smartphone software steals 3D printer designs

By placing the smartphone next to a printer, if you know the type of printer, you can listen to it and hear what it’s printing. Then you can reassemble 94% of the original design. Source: Scientists’ sneaky smartphone software steals 3D printer designs

Laser-assisted direct ink writing of planar and 3D metal architectures

The ability to pattern planar and freestanding 3D metallic architectures at the microscale would enable myriad applications, including flexible electronics, displays, sensors, and electrically small antennas. A 3D printing method is introduced that combines direct ink writing with a focused laser that locally anneals printed metallic features “on-the-fly.” To optimize the nozzle-to-laser separation distance, the […]

$99 Smartphone 3D Printer. by OLO 3D Inc.

Tiny and portable, it hardens the resin using the light of the smartphone screen. It uses 4AA batteries for power. X-Y resolution: up to 0.042 mm (quality dep. on device) Z resolution: up to 0.036 mm (0.12 mm in quick-mode) 400cm3

3D printed items can be reversed engineered using a smartphone to listen to the sound of the printing proces

The team, led by Mohammad Al Faruque, director of UCI’s Advanced Integrated Cyber-Physical Systems Lab, showed that a device as ordinary and ubiquitous as a smartphone can be placed next to a machine and capture acoustic signals that carry information about the precise movements of the printer’s nozzle. The recording can then be used to […]

A new way to print 3-D metals and alloys using rust

A team of Northwestern University engineers has created a new way to print three-dimensional metallic objects using rust and metal powders. While current methods rely on vast metal powder beds and expensive lasers or electron beams, Northwestern’s new technique uses liquid inks and common furnaces, resulting in a cheaper, faster, and more uniform process. The […]

3D printing polymer-derived ceramics now possible

Because ceramics cannot be cast or machined easily, three-dimensional (3D) printing enables a big leap in geometrical flexibility. We report preceramic monomers that are cured with ultraviolet light in a stereolithography 3D printer or through a patterned mask, forming 3D polymer structures that can have complex shape and cellular architecture. These polymer structures can be […]

3D Printed Hair

We introduce a technique for 3D printing soft strands, fibers, and bristles using conventional 3D printers. Our work was inspired by the phenomenon that occurs during the operation of a handheld glue gun: when a person extrudes hot glue material and moves the gun away, a “string” of residue often forms unintentionally. The shape, length, […]
