However, there are many more materials that don’t print on the majority of 3D Printers, due to their physical properties. However, one company, by the name of Structur3D Printing, hopes to change this. They plan on doing this by launching a new product called the Discov3ry. It is an extruder add-on that allows most FDM 3D printers, including MakerBots, Ultimakers, RepRaps and other DIY printers to print in a multitude of previously unthought of materials. It should work with any stepper motor based desktop 3D printer system. 3D Printing Request - 3D printing - LibGuides at Oregon State University.

In honor of the month, we are taking the opportunity to find out why. When I think of 3D printers, I am instantly taken back to the days of George Jetson, imagine pressing a button and opening a magic door to exactly what I had asked for. Honestly, the 3D printing technology seems frighteningly close to that futuristic memory, but, the truth is, there is HUGE potential for 3D printing to impact math education in a variety of ways. The Process. The idea of how 3D printing works is a math lesson in itself. The Mathematics. Design Thinking Workshop for Kids. How to 3D print what you build in Minecraft … TUTORIAL WITH VIDEO!

The works are digital art created on an Amiga by Andy Warhol in 1985. A media archaeology team has restored the files from disk and published photos of 3 original works. The photos allow for a pixel perfect recreation of the original artwork. Fair use is claimed for this work. 3-D scanning, with your smartphone. Traditionally, 3-D scanning has required expensive laser scanner equipment, complicated software, and technological expertise.

3-D scanning, with your smartphone

But MIT spinout Viztu Technologies helped change that: Back in 2011, Viztu released software, free online, that essentially replaced expensive scanning hardware with personal cameras. This innovation led to a rapidly rising commercial enterprise that concluded with Viztu’s sale to a tech giant, which is now bringing the technology to the public worldwide. Viztu’s flagship web service, Hypr3D, could rapidly generate digital 3-D models of an object (human or inanimate) or scene from a series of user-uploaded 2-D digital photos or videos, usually captured by digital cameras, smartphones, or webcams. “We gave people the easiest scanner available: the cameras they already owned,” says Thomas Milnes PhD ’13, Viztu’s chief technology officer, who developed the software behind Hypr3D as part of his MIT dissertation.

What Is 4-D Printing? [Video] The biggest breakthroughs in how we make things lie not in the technology to manipulate materials but in the materials themselves.

What Is 4-D Printing? [Video]

Such is the thinking behind “4-D printing,” an experimental approach to manufacturing that expands on much-hyped 3-D printing processes. Instead of building static three-dimensional items from layers of plastics or metals, 4-D printing employs dynamic materials that continue to evolve in response to their environment. This new wrinkle in the maker movement comes courtesy of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Self-Assembly Lab, where director Skylar Tibbits and his team are experimenting with so-called “programmable materials.” The researchers print these substances using a 3-D printer and then watch as the fourth dimension—time—takes over and the materials change shape or automatically reassemble in new patterns.

Make Sense of 3D Objects. Today 3D Systems announced their latest product, the Sense 3D Scanner. Keith Ozar from 3D Systems described the new hand-held 3D scanner as “physical photography.” The Sense can easily scan objects as large as 10′x 10′x 10′ or high resolution scans as close as 20″ away. Best of all the entire system costs $399 and will be in hundreds of Staples stores starting on November 18, 2013. Check out how the Sense scanned Matt Richardson: David Scheltema I love to tinker and write about electronics. Related. 3D printing: A third-world dimension. African Jumpstart With 3D Printing? - Fabbaloo - Many years ago we wondered how Africa could ever catch up to the West in telecommunications. The cost of installing cabling would have been tremendous, but something happened to change the picture. Wireless technology emerged and Africa didn't have to come up with cash to install wires. They simply leapfrogged over the old technology and began with the new.
