The Entire Country of Bahrain has Been 3D Printed in a Huge 1:10,000-scale Model 3D Printed Cerbarco Building When it comes to 3D printing, we are used to seeing the technology used on a small scale. It isn’t too often that we see it utilized in creating anything much larger than a basketball. It’s a lengthy process that takes a great deal of patience. One company called Micro CADD Services (MCS) has gone against the grain, and has proven that 3D printing can be used for much more. Tangible Media Group TRANSFORM fuses technology and design to celebrate its transformation from a piece of still furniture to a dynamic machine driven by the stream of data and energy. Created by Professor Hiroshi Ishii and the Tangible Media Group from the MIT Media Lab, TRANSFORM aims to inspire viewers with unexpected transformations, as well as the aesthetics of the complex machine in motion. TRANSFORM was first exhibited in LEXUS DESIGN AMAZING 2014 MILAN in April 2014.

DIY Selective Laser Sintering FAQ Introduction Some time ago I started research on feasibility of building a DIY Selective Laser Sintering rapid prototyping machine to work with thermoplastics. It quickly turned out that a there are quite a few enthusiasts who are already doing something in this area, as well as wealth of helpful information. However, what I found, it is very time consuming to gather enough background information to actually be able to design and build an SLS machine. So, I've started this FAQ with the aim to build easily accessible all-in-one collection of common answers to common questions so that other enthusiasts like me could save time looking for the same information. Hopefully this becomes a living document as knowledge of the community grows.

brandon martella: Live Share Grow Food as a resource is limited. Supply will soon not meet demand. With population growth, food production in the United States is reaching maximum capacity. Current trends in development create a struggle between farming and living. Tech: Free Software Released to 3D Print Objects Larger Than Printer’s Build Volume Over the past several months we have seen many extremely large 3D printers come to market. This stems from the desire to print objects larger than what typical FDM 3D printers can handle. After all, what fun is a 3D printer when you are limited to printing only smaller objects? With the release of these larger 3D printers, however, comes the problem of finding a place to store that printer. Most people don’t have an entire room in their house that they can designate as their 3D printing room, nor the garage space to store a 3D printer in.

Learn more At Wevolver, you’ll find inspiring projects such as, the 3D printer Ultimaker, the open source sailing robot Protei and InMoov, the humanoid robot. You can learn about new technology, access project blueprints and be part of the fast growing open hardware movement. Developing open source technology often involves multiple fields of expertise, from industrial design to electronic and mechanical engineering. 3D printing This article or section is incomplete and its contents need further attention.

Four African Girls Create Urine-Powered Generator 7 November '12, 04:58pm Follow What have you built lately? 14-year-olds Duro-Aina Adebola, Akindele Abiola, Faleke Oluwatoyin, and 15-year-old Bello Eniola have created a urine powered generator. All over Africa, young men and women have missioned across the country and arrived in Lagos, Nigeria. All they want to do is show off what they have made. King Richard III’s Entire 3D Printed Skeleton Unveiled For Museum Opening The ability of 3D printers to make near exact replicas of objects have led to a variety of amazing applications, especially for the use within museum exhibits. Over the last several months, we have covered numerous stories detailing how museums worldwide are utilizing 3D printing technology to make copies of their most valuable pieces. By doing so they are able to oftentimes provide museum attendees the option to interact with the replicas in a whole new way, allowing them to actually touch the objects in some cases. Just like 2D scanners and printers have enabled us to forever preserve written manuscripts, old biblical scripts, and historically written artifacts, 3D scanners and 3D printers are doing the same for practically everything else. Approximately two years ago, a major find related to the history of England took place.

3d scan anything using just a camera - All If you haven't been living under a rock for the last few years you have probably heard all the cool stuff that is going on with 3d printing. We are now capable of printing almost anything provided we have a 3d model to work from. There are many ways to make a 3d model, but one of the coolest is to 3d scan an existing object. With a 3d scan and the right printer you can reproduce any object at any size from a house to an earring. You can also use the scan as a starting point for a new creation.
