The number of 3D printer products on the market has increased dramatically in recent years, with new and updated models emerging on a larger scale. Interestingly, some stand out as highly powerful, and Prusa is one of them. The Brains Behind Prusa Prusa is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of 3D printers. It continuously…

3d printing a 3d printer

In this day and age, a good number of the world’s population is already using 3D printing technology. From large manufacturing companies utilizing Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) to the more common Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) found in commercial 3D printers, almost anyone with a couple of bucks to spare can buy and make use of…

Once you’ve chosen a 3D printer, you’ll need to pick a type of filament intended for your project. The filament is the raw material used in 3D printers that will be heated at a high temperature to turn it into a semi-solid state. While in this phase, the printer can easily generate the appropriate design…

We talk a lot about 3D printers, but most use plastic or resin materials. Rarely do we have the pleasure of seeing a ceramic 3D printer which uses honest-to-goodness earthen clay to print an object. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ker1FTS1q1Q The Cerambot does exactly that – it takes your standard Kaolinite clay material and allows you to builds shapes,…

Last 2015, entrepreneurs Simon Breum Fisker and Jacob Lindeberg Kickstarted a compact 3D printer which made the technology more accessible to children. Aptly called the Sculpto, it requires a simple Wi-Fi connection and control via a mobile app. With it, they can print countless designs found on the Internet and, if they’re feeling particularly creative,…

For all the things it can create in its bosom, your average 3D printer is a lot of work. The best 3D printers are huge, expensive, and require more space than a young professional’s apartment can afford. On the flip side, cheaper printers are usually unreliable and are about as appealing to the eye as…

It is hard to disagree that when Swiss quality meets German precision, great things happen. Take the case when Thorsten Franck put the Delta Tower printer to good use in a project called 7DAYS7STOOLS. One of the objectives of this project was to find a new way of production for real objects in human scale.…

The good folks at Sculptify are gearing up for an August-based Kickstarter Campaign to help fund the production of ‘David’ 3D Printer. The reason why you should keep an eye on this project is because this plastic extrusion 3D printer does not use expensive filament but plastic pellets to print your designs.

It’s late at night, I’m drinking stale coffee and as I file this report, New Matter’s MOD-t 3D Printer has crossed the three hundred thousand-dollar mark and is 80% funded. It’s been up on IndieGoGo for less than 24-hours where the early-bird specials sold out within the first two hours, and every other pledge is…

I have a question for you – how many custom 3D printed pieces does it take to build an architectural wall? Don’t sweat too much, the answer is 222, in fact I gave you a hint in advance! Big Bad Wolf will need a little bit more than a huff-and-puff to bring down this custom…

If we go by what designer Maya Ben David says, then changes in technology and culture has influenced the way we have ‘reshaped and reconfigured’ essential systems found in our homes. Basic rudiments like plumbing and electricity have seen changes in functionality, materials and construction. Innovative approaches using 3D Printing technology are helping us take…

This week EngineerVsDesigner sat down with one of the design engineers behind the all-in-one ‘Machine in a Box’ Microfactory, Mr. Jeremy Fryer-Biggs of Mebotics. The Microfactory is a combination 3D printer, mill, and laser etcher. We’ll talk with Jeremy about everything from how the individual components on the machine compare to other systems on the…

3D Systems is a positive potent powerplant of press releases. Coming off their acquisition of Geomagic, 3D Systems decided to unleash upon the unsuspecting world their second-generation line-up of Consumer 3D Printers, just in time for CES 2013 (okay, not so unexpected). We asked, what could the ‘X’ in CubeX stand for? Famously, when US…
