Friday Funday! Ice Cream and Mechanical Engineering
How much do you know about the effects of 3D printing on ‘Mechanical Engineering’? If you’re like most people it’s not something that you’re naturally interested in and that’s why I’m excited to share with you why it’s interesting and pretty fun as well. Let’s take a look. 3D printing has been leaking into unexpected areas for the last 10 years, these are areas such as food and fashion. Engineering and hardware manufacturing are areas... Read More
Sponsoring STEM Day For Girls!
It’s no mystery that women are underrepresented in activities, industries, and fields like: science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). The 3D printing eco-system is yet another industry in technology that is struggling to get women on board. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, women make up 47% of the total U.S. workforce, but comprise only 8.3% of electrical and electronic engineers, and 7.2% of... Read More
Looking for the best 3D printing marketplace ?
Are you curious about 3D printing but lack the skills and time to design your idea? This is not an issue anymore. Thousands of designers and users gather together on 3D printing marketplaces to share and sell their designs. It’s good way to enjoy 3D printing without having to experience design issues. Different kinds of 3D printing marketplaces are defined by people using them 3D printing services companies, like... Read More
3D printing uses: Production with 3D printing
With raw materials often 10 to 50 times more expensive than traditional manufacturing, 3D printing has been often presented as a manufacturing technology suited for small quantities only (and therefore particularly adapted for prototyping). This was particularly true until a few years ago, 3D printing technologies are now shifting toward more usability because of their recent development in terms of speed, quality and cost. It means...

Material can change shape with 4D Printing
3D Printing is already reshaping a large number of industries and no-doubt that all potential applications are not discovered yet. This doesn’t prevent the researchers to work on the next step: 4D Printing. Programmable materials are able to change shape without complex stimulation. Watch them in action. 4D Printing is developed by Self-assembly Lab, which is a cross-disciplinary research lab at MIT inventing self-assembly and... Read More
