Could Secured3D be the missing link in 3D printing evolution? 3D Printed Circuit Boards, for Solder-free Printable Electronics. The World’s First Home-Printable Fashion Doll, Quin, Looks Pretty Spacey. This is Quin. She’s a fully posable (and Barbie-compatible) doll that can be made on a 3D printer and snapped together. Her creators, the folks at 3DKitBash built her to prove that you can build usable, playable toys on a 3D printer. They also built her because she looks amazing. The 3D files will cost $55 once the project funds in January and you can order her pre-printed in ABS plastic for $245. You can also order clothes and other perks from their Kickstarter page. The pair who created Quin are Natalie Mathis and Quincy Robinson.

“I’ve also been known to rehabilitate orphaned possums,” he said. The team is based in Cincinatti, Ohio where they’ve seen a renaissance of sorts in the 3D-printing community. “We’re all about trying to test the boundaries of what can be achieved with desktop 3D Printing, and a doll (in my mind) is a pretty big test for good or bad,” said Robinson. Robinson and Mathis see Quin as more than just a toy.

I remember the days when "cyborg" was a science fiction term and was unlikely to turn up in a serious science paper.

Happily, the old folk who attempt to stand between the seas of scientific and popular discussion are failing, and I am proud to present the cyborg ear. That's right—researchers from Princeton and Johns Hopkins have come together to grow an ear. The hearing, however, is done with electronics, making this the ultimate in human-machine chimera. On the whole, though, it looks kinda gross. So how do you go about making a fleshy electronic ear? By itself, that's an entirely artificial ear. Of course, an ear has to fulfill certain functions. The cool thing about cyborgs is that they have abilities beyond that of the native human—similarly, this ear can do things mine can't. The important thing, though, is that an ear can... hear stuff. They then compared the left and right audio signals of a piece of music as received by two cyborg ears.

Biocompatible 3D Printing Firm Wins Contract from Northrop Grumman. Attack On Pirate3D & Open Source. Introducing 123D Design. EmailShare 67EmailShare If you want to print in 3D, there are three ways to obtain a 3D design: create it yourself, download from Thingiverse, or scan and then print. For most of us without much design experience, creating an original 3D design can be a challenge. But now, thanks to our friends at Autodesk, you don’t need to know how to constrain, dimension, or extrude sketches in a traditional CAD drawing software – instead, you can create your own original designs with 123D Design, a new release from Autodesk that offers an easy-to-use 3D drawing program you can operate right in your browser. 123D Design is surprisingly powerful, and we wanted to draw your attention to a couple of features that work really well with 3D printing: 1.

Use fillets and chamfers to design edges. You can change the angle or curve of your model’s edges, making your models look more professional and easier to print. 2.

What is a 3D printer? 3D printers are a new generation of machines that can make everyday things. They’re remarkable because they can produce different kinds of objects, in different materials, all from the same machine. A 3D printer can make pretty much anything from ceramic cups to plastic toys, metal machine parts, stoneware vases, fancy chocolate cakes or even (one day soon) human body parts.

They replace traditional factory production lines with a single machine, just like home inkjet printers replaced bottles of ink, a printing press, hot metal type and a drying rack. Why is it called printing? If you look closely (with a microscope) at a page of text from your home printer, you’ll see the letters don’t just stain the paper, they’re actually sitting slightly on top of the surface of the page. In theory, if you printed over that same page a few thousand times, eventually the ink would build up enough layers on top of each other to create a solid 3D model of each letter. @Killdozer. 3D Printing for Dummies – 3DP 1on1 in the Independent.

Digitizer Update 6 | Missing Puppy Data Found. EmailShare 79EmailShare The Digitizer team at MakerBot is hard at work trying to make the scanning experience as easy and intuitive as possible for our users. We want the Digitizer to help take the guess work and effort out of creating good models for 3D printing and 3D modeling projects. For example, other 3D scanning options often deliver files with missing data, like this puppy on the left.

The puppy model is filled with holes, which makes it almost impossible to process for 3D printing or use for additional 3D modeling. Have suggestions for our next scan?

Printerest: 3D Printables Repository Potential? Imagineers Founders: China's 3D Printing Present and Future. As reality catches up to the hype of 3D printing, the DIY consumer market dwindles. But the co-founders of China-based Imagineers, Gu Wei and Eddie Chen, say there isn’t too much hype; it’s just misplaced. The DIY segment, according to them, is dwarfed by the demand for enterprise and industrial 3D printing solutions, which is where they plan to make bank.

The pair created a company that caters to the needs of those customers. Imagineers makes its own 3D-printer, which retails for $1,000 and is similar to the Makerbot‘s popular Replicator model line. Low-cost prototyping The first is low-cost rapid prototyping. (See also: 3D Printer Maker Pirate3D Now Aims for $1 Million on Kickstarter) Their second service is system integration.

Conventional wisdom says that manufacturing isn't viable in America, least of all in New York City.

But MakerBot is bucking that trend in a couple of ways: Firstly they manufacture objects that manufacture other objects. Secondly, they just increased their physical footprint by a factor of ten. On Friday, MakerBot cut the ribbon on their new 55,000-square-foot facility in Brooklyn's Sunset Park, trading up from their comparatively puny 5,000-square-foot startup space. The expansion comes as no surprise given that MakerBot has recently hired scores of new employees. Recent funding talks have thrown around figures of $25-$50 million, with murmurs of a $300 million valuation. While those numbers are yet to be set in stone, more clear are the new facility's staff: One hundred employees, out of the 267 total on MakerBot's employment roster.

How 3D printing will rebuild reality. A 3D model of a complex anaplastology case, created in collaboration with the anaplastologist Jan De Cubber, is seen at the Belgian company Materialise. 3D printing has already changed the game for manufacturing specialized products such as medical devices. REUTERS/Yves Herman When Star Trek debuted in the mid-60s, everybody geeked out about the food synthesizers. Even my mom, a reluctant but compulsory Trek viewer, recognized the utility of this amazing gadget, particularly with two ravenous boys around the house.

My brother and I knew, of course, that the real magic food box was the refrigerator. Years later, I wasn’t the only one craving the replicators of Star Trek:The Next Generation for my home workshop. TNG’s follow-on concept of a ‘universal build-box’ upped the ante way beyond a hot cup of Earl Grey. A 3D object called the Quin.MGX is seen at the Belgian company Materialise, a pioneer in the process. Thos 3D vase, called The Hidden, was designed by Dan Yeffetlamp. Slow progress.

The secret behind James Bond's priceless Aston Martin DB 5 stunts: 3D printed models were used for Skyfall's most dangerous scenes. 3D printing was used to create models a third of the size of the real thingThe replica mini-cars were used throughout the film, and blown up in a key scene By Mark Prigg Published: 11:29 GMT, 13 November 2012 | Updated: 13:51 GMT, 13 November 2012 James Bond's Aston Martin DB5 was put through a series of huge explosions and stunts during the filming of Skyfall, including one scene which saw the priceless vehicle explode in flames.

However, producers have revealed the secret behind the stunts - if they lost a car, they could simply print another. Three replica cars, a third of the size of the real thing, were created using a large scale 3D printer. Scroll down for video 18 individual parts were printed to create the Aston Martin seen on screen The models double for the now priceless original vehicle from the 1960s in the film's action scenes. The models were made by British firm Propshop Modelmakers Ltd, which specialise in the production of film props, and used Voxeljet to print the cars. 3D-Printed Music. 4D Printing - Skylar Tibbits' Full TED Talk. How 3D printing could take over the manufacturing industry. He laptop I typed this article on is the culmination of a vast, sprawling, and elaborate process over many continents, using many resources, many people, and many machines. My laptop's construction incorporates plastics built out of crude oil, metals mined in Africa and forged into memory in Korea and semiconductors in Germany, and an aluminium case made from bauxite mined in Brazil.

Gallons and gallons of refined oil were used to ship all the resources and components around the world, until they were finally assembled in China, and shipped out once again to the consumer. That manufacturing process stands upon the shoulders of centuries of scientific research, and years of product development, testing, and marketing. The manufacturing industry today is a huge mesh of complex processes. Capitalism and the systems that it builds are the product of an evolutionary process gradually adjusting around consumer demand and the imperative of maximizing profit. Being a Printer Master: Managing Mass Printing in a Makerspace. Jeff Landrum is a Mechanical Engineering student at Georgia Tech and 3D Printing Master at the Invention Studio. A few weeks ago MAKE posted a piece featuring the Invention Studio, a state-of-the-art, student-volunteer-run makerspace at Georgia Tech. Some of these student volunteers take up the position of “Master” on certain machines and do a great deal of the behind the scenes work to keep the studio running smoothly by keeping their machines stocked, online, and – if possible – constantly improving throughout the year.

As 3D Printing Master, I’ve had the pleasure of doing so for our consumer-level printers this semester. Running a set of printers like this has a lot of cool upsides, like using the unique strengths of what many consider the top of the line consumer-level machines on the market across a dizzying array of projects. There’s a wide set of metrics people have used to compare printers against each other like speed, accuracy, print quality, and even aesthetics. Thing-O-Matic.

This project was a demonstration of the potential of 3D printers to create high-fidelity, finished products. We wanted to create something that could only be created by means of additive manufacturing. The ultimate goal was to create a functional, consumer-ready piece that took advantage of the strengths of 3D printing. This project was also an exploration in the role of digital design tools in the 3D printing world, and how we could combine digital tools in new ways to create unique objects.
