It may sound like a crazy idea but how can a vitamin which plays a key role in energy metabolism help a technological process like 3D printing? Apparently it can, particularly when it comes to 3D printing artificial tissues and medical implants. Riboflavin also known
Out of the box dual head 3D printers, easy to use 3D scanners or expiring 3D printing patents are only some of the latest signs showing that the consumer additive manufacturing market is expanding rapidly. Every day new revolutionary 3D printed objects are announced, from
In 2009 the 3D printing technology started gathering many followers and early adopters overnight and it led to the creation of Makerbot and to an explosion of open-source 3D printers. A similar event that triggered this 4 years ago is about to repeat itself in
The year has only started and 3D printing already tops the list of the most talked about technologies of 2013. And we are not talking only about technology blogs, small online communities or tech start-ups, but about mainstream media and technology giants. Nokia is one
With the increasing performance of additive manufacturing in accurately 3D printing smaller structures, electronics companies could not have been happier. A cutting edge technology known as “two photon lithography” uses a laser beam and a set of mirrors to harden a resin at very specific points in order to create a structure as small as a grain of sand.
The recent popularity of 3D printing comes to no surprise when you have a look at the range of benefits this emerging technology already delivers. The cost-effective, high quality and unique features of the 3D printed objects along with the continuous development of additive manufacturing
3D printing (also known as additive manufacturing) has already been adopted by many big names to replace their current prototyping methods and even to be used as part of the manufacturing process. With an increasing popularity that is already spreading into the consumer market, additive
Imagine a future where every object in your house is fully customised to your tastes and needs; where every form, colour and even size are only limited by your imagination. In this world you create what you want, how and when you want it. And this idealistic future could soon become reality through 3D Printing.
