Top Ten of 3D Printing. Meet designer James Novak and his stunning 3D printed bike frame. Aug. 14, 2014 We've seen a few examples of 3D printing in the bicycle industry and the possibilities that it could hold for the future.

Meet designer James Novak and his stunning 3D printed bike frame

Back in January, 2014, Flying Machine, a small company based in Perth, Australia, revealed a titanium bike that features eight titanium "lugs" printed by the CSIRO. In the same period, Empire Cycles and Renishaw made the world's first 3D printed metal bike frame. If you are really into cycling, you would love the idea of making your own frame and being able to add whatever custom geometry and extras to your bike. That future is not far, basically it is already here. This week an Australia-based industrial designer has brought an awesome project to the world: a redesigned, custom-fit, 3D printed bike frame that you have never seen before: beautiful mesh texture, light weight, accommodated LED lighting in the rear for safety, the designer's name included within the structure of the frame!

Hence the 3D printed bike frame. Indeed. Kinematics Dress by Nervous System - 3D Printed by Shapeways. Strati.

Los 7 usos más innovadores de las impresoras 3D

El resultado es un elemento completamente personalizado hecho de un solo cuerpo, el que puede servir por sí solo o para ser parte de una estructura más grande y compleja. Se habla de "impresión" ya que el proceso para llegar a eso es similar al que se utiliza hoy en las impresoras en papel, pero en lugar de imprimir tinta sobre una hoja plana se imprime algún material líquido sobre sí mismo, todo para conformar un objeto tangible tal y como se veía en la mente de diseñador y en la pantalla de la computadora. 3D Printer Types. 3D Printing. 3D Printing II.

Best of 2012: 3D Printed Objects

While 3D printers don’t yet compete with toasters or DVD players in the home, the dam on the consumer market has been breached as the number of lower priced, easy-to-use models–and those who use them–grows. Part of this trend surely comes from the ever-expanding catalog of 3D printed objects, from the useful to the fanciful. Printing chess pieces and busts of Stephen Colbert is nice, but the range of what people create with their printers grows by the day and in turn inspires others to model and print ever more striking/utilitarian/beautiful/ridiculous/amazing objects. What follows is a round-up of some of the more compelling items that came across our desks in 2012. As I look at the list it strikes me that it represents a moment in time. 3D Printed Guitar While my friend who makes classical guitars from Brazilian rosewood might disagree, I think this is a beauty.
