If you own or have ever used a 3D printer, you know how long printing objects with a single material can take. If you have a printer that’s capable of printing multiple materials in the same print, you know that printing time increases exponentially with every material change.  Toss in color changes too and a print that once took just a few hours to complete might now take a day or more to complete. Thankfully, a good amount of funding has been spent on research into multi-material 3D ...
The buildings that populate our cities as well as the homes that populate our suburbs all have something in common with the bones that support our bodies: they are made up of columns and beams. In our homes and building, the columns are the studs inside of the walls, and the beams are the plates and rafters that connect them together. As it turns out, our bones are constructed in a similar fashion with columns supporting the vertical load and beams spreading that load out across multiple columns ...
A team of researchers from the University of New South Wales has developed a new method for making optical glass fiber preforms, the pucks of material that glass fiber optics are drawn from, using DLP 3D printing technology. This breakthrough could not only lead to significant advancements in how fiberoptics are made, and ultimately could result in cheaper, higher-quality fiber optics, but could produce new designs that lead to major advancements in the technology.   “Making silica ...

Posted by evanaennas Dec 6, 2019
If you’ve been traveling the craft market circuit you may have seen 3D art popping up. If you’ve been to any video game conventions or shows or if you’ve been checking out craft style sites online you might have seen them too. But just what is 3D printing? Is it something just anyone can do? Is it something that you might want to be doing? We’ll take a look at some of the specifics and the things that you might want to know before you decide if you really want to get into ...
