The Hyrel 3D printer looks like any other single-extruder additive printer. But thanks to a fairly unique nozzle called the HYREL Emulsifiable Extruder (EMO-25) you can use it to squirt out usual materials like Play-Doh, air-drying clay, and even Sugru, a self-setting rubber that dries into a solid, usable object. The creator, Daniel Hutchison funded his project on Kickstarter and is preparing to ship the printer in the next few months. Hyrel 3D Printer Can Squirt Out Self-Setting Sugru And Even Play-Doh

Mars-bound astronauts will print food & tools, NASA says NASA will transport 3D printers to space so astronauts can print tools — and potentially even food. NASA’s chief administrator Charles Bolden discussed the role of 3D printers during a recent press tour of the Ames Research Center . According to ComputerWorld , Bolden believes the technology could be “key,” particularly as the agency explores missions to Mars and beyond. “As NASA ventures further into space, whether redirecting an asteroid or sending humans to Mars, we’ll need transformative technology to reduce cargo weight and volume,” Bolden said. “In the future, perhaps astronauts will be able to print the tools or components they need while in space.”
In Tomorrow's Wars, Battles Will Be Fought With a 3-D Printer | Danger Room A 3-D printed drone is shot down by insurgents near a far-flung base manned by the U.S. military. Within hours, a small lab dropped onto the base by a helicopter days before churns out a replacement — along with plenty of ammunition and reinforced shelters for the troops. A few miles off a nearby coastline, a naval ship-turned-factory harvests resources from the sea and uses on-board printers to make everything from food to replacement organs. It’s a far-out vision for future combat, but at least one naval officer thinks it could happen.

3D Burrito – Home page
Online marketplace '3D Burrito' for 3D printed objects - find3dprinter An online marketplace for 3D printed designs hits the web. It’s called 3D burrito and it’s a place where people can buy and sell 3D designs made for 3D printers. It feels a bit like Shapeways , only 3D Burrito is more open source and focused on printing at home with your own 3D printer. Shapeways is more oriented on the whole solution, they offer a 3D printed product and mail it to your adress. Before the two founders (from Sweden) started the website 3D Burrito they where looking online for a printable design of a 3D Burrito.
3D printing - What can you print?
Blender 2.67 was released last week with a 3D printing toolbox. LGW spoke to Dolf Veenvliet, Bart Veldhuizen (Shapeways, Blendernation), and Rich Borrett (Ponoko) about the new tools and the future of 3D printing. As one of the impressively fast growing industries, 3D printing is lately all the rage in the press. Let's start with the basics. What do we know about 3D printing anyway? Increasingly affordable (under $1000 now) desktop 3D printers make it possible to turn designs into real plastic or metal objects up to 30cm large in any dimension.

At the TED conference in Los Angeles, architect and computer scientist Skylar Tibbits showed how the process allows objects to self-assemble. It could be used to install objects in hard-to-reach places such as underground water pipes, he suggested.
NAMII's headquarters in Youngstown. (Credit: Flickr/ NCDMM News) A little over a year ago, 3D printing was a funky new technology that you might find at modestly sized booths in the basement level of the Las Vegas Convention Center at CES. Tonight, President Obama mentioned it in the same breath as Apple and Intel during his State of the Union address, while talking about ways to create new jobs and manufacturing in the United States.

Image credit: Geoffrey J T Cooper/Lee Cronin/University of Glasgow UK scientists have developed 3D printing technology for making miniaturised fluidic reactionware devices that can be used for chemical syntheses, in just a few hours. Having recently built a 3D printer in his laboratory, Leroy Cronin and his colleagues from the University of Glasgow have now shown that intricate micro- and milli-scale reactionware can be printed. 3D-printed miniaturised fluidic devices | Chemistry World
It seems like not a week goes by without some mention of 3D printers somewhere. This time around, MIT students Ilan Moyer and Nadya Peek have developed Popfab, a 3D printer in a briefcase. PopFab is a multi-tool for the 21st century. At its heart is a computer-controlled motion platform and a means of attaching various toolheads. These enable PopFab to make objects from a digital plan in a variety of ways: current capabilities include 3D printing, milling, vinyl cutting, and drawing — with more on the way.

An ORDbot Quantum 3D printer. Additive manufacturing or 3D printing is a process of making a three-dimensional solid object of virtually any shape from a digital model. 3D printing is achieved using an additive process, where successive layers of material are laid down in different shapes. 3D printing is also considered distinct from traditional machining techniques, which mostly rely on the removal of material by methods such as cutting or drilling (subtractive processes).
Z Corp | 2009 3D Printer Buyer's Guide Tough economic times make a powerful argument for investing in 3D printing. Not only does such money spent yield long-term strategic value — enhancing design capabilities and speeding time to market — it can also save money right now by raising throughput and reducing labor requirements.
