Rapid prototyping for the next generation of commercial 3D printers......
The future of music has arrived in the form of a futuristic looking 3D-printed violin.
Architechts Eric Goldemberg and Veronica Zalcberg of Miami’s MONAD studio came up with the design for the two-string Piezoelectric Violin.
New developments in 3D printing could allow doctors to print bones on the fly, enabling medical professionals to help patients heal quicker from bone injuries.
This new technology is still being perfected and tested on monkeys and rats, but medical professionals are confident that it will propel the industry forward.
“This is a neat way to overcome the challenges we face in generating bone replacements,” says Jos Malda, a biomaterials engineer from Utrecht University in the Netherlands who was not involved in the work. “The scaffold is simpler to make than others and it offers more benefits.”
When 3D printing architectural models, you combine the precision of virtual 3D modeling with the tangibility of a physical object. Architects used to create scale models mostly out of wood or foam, but more and more of them are embracing the benefits of 3D printing their newest designs. Read on to learn why architects are joining the 3D printing revolution!
We think we know that the infill can have a major impact on your finished model, but a new study has investigated just how the parts you don’t see affect the ones you can. It really doesn’t make as much difference as we think when it comes to tensile strength.
So how does 3D printing really work? Actually, there is no single, easy answer to this, since ‘3D printing’ includes many different technologies. While some printers work with filament, others use powder, and yet others work with liquid. To bring some structure into this, we put together a video overview about the most important 3D printing technologies.
