It looks like 3D printing is getting even more mainstream with the just launched rear shell for your Nokia Lumia 820. Easy to download, but what about printability? The Nokia Lumia 820 has a clip-on interchangeable back which can be downloaded on the developer site . It can then be 3D printed on your printer or by a service such as ours. We’re happy that such a major player in the world in mobility embraces 3D printing and customization.
Mar.23, 2013 Last week US Congressman Bill Foster introduced the National Fab Lab Network Act of 2013 to promote advanced manufacturing in the U.S. and invest in the next generation of entrepreneurs and innovators. According to its press release , "the goal of the network will be to establish at least one Fab Lab for every 700,000 people, giving students throughout the country access to the tools and skills needed to bring their ideas to life. The legislation does not provide funding to the network, but seeks to provide the project with the recognition needed to grow and establish new centers throughout the country." Surprisingly the number is just "one Fab Lab for every 700,000 people". There are more than 315 million people in U.S., so that would be around 450 Fablabs in the whole country.
Print Shift is a magazine that explores the fast-changing world of 3D printing and analyses the way it is changing the worlds of architecture and design. The 60-page, advert-free publication explores advances in 3D printing across a range of topics including fashion, food, design, architecture and even weaponry and archaeology. Written by the Dezeen editorial team, Print Shift is the result of extensive research into a field of technology that is developing at exhilarating speed. We have spoken to architects, designers, scientists and researchers around the world, travelled across Europe and visited some of the leading studios and factories at the cutting edge of a technological revolution.

I think that there are a number of similarities between paper printing and 3D printing but would council against directly comparing the paper printing industry, market, cost reductions and growth with that of 3D printing. There are a number of fundamental differences at the moment and here I pick out 8 ways in which the current state of the 3D printing industry is different from the state of the DTP/PC/printer industry before its mainstreaming: 1. Ecosystem: With paper printing entire industries & ecosystems coalesce around technologies such as inkjet, laser printing & toner. This is not the case with 3D printing where there are many different technologies that have very little to do with each other and there is no ecosystem around them with many being developed by one company. 2.
Sep.27, 2012 This weekend, on Saturday, Sept. 29, and Sunday, Sept. 30, attendees at World Maker Faire , at the New York Hall of Science (NYSCI) in Queens, N.Y. will get a chance to feel the 3D printing enthusiasm at two venues: the 3D Printer Village and the 3D Pavilion.
A 30-year-old idea is coming in vogue, with stunning implications for design engineering.
Additive manufacturing is a fastly moving technology. Each week brings new amazing projects on stage… 3D printings that no one thought possible a few years or months ago.
The Tech Innovators Series is supported by Lenovo . Lenovo does not just manufacture technology. They make Do machines — super-powered creation engines designed to help the people who do, do more, do better, do in brand new ways.

Leroy-Merlin se passionne pour le phénomène des fab labs, ces lieux citoyens dédiés au partage d'outils de fabrication et de production. Par pur amour du client et de son développement (financier) durable. Imaginons : il s’appelle Jean, il pousse les portes de son Leroy-Merlin avec en tête un plan de bibliothèque spéciale bandes dessinées.
Des grands groupes industriels s'intéressent aux "fab labs", ces mini-usines collaboratives, citoyennes, ouvertes à tous et permettant de créer ou de fabriquer des objets à la demande.
Des designers conçoivent leurs propres outils de production et systèmes de pilotage, modifiant leur rapport aux circuits industriels classiques et à leur métier. Un phénomène notoire est en train de se développer avec le numérique : la fabrication de la part des designers de leurs propres outils et protocoles de production. Tandis que le designer est dans une large mesure associé à un concepteur, celui qui imagine et fait projet, voilà qu’il se met à élaborer des machines « maison » et à bidouiller les programmes qui vont les piloter.
