MIT introduces 3D printing with glass
When it comes to 3D printing, all eyes are directed to the machine performances and the development of new materials. It’s just the way it is, and we understand why. The more you can do with 3D printing the more people will see it a a viable way to produce objects in their everyday life. That being said, some materials are not that easy to print. For instance, glass was a tough one to reach. Until now. Last Friday, researchers... Read More
Fashion industry & 3D printing: Exclusive interview of Danit Peleg, Interlaced’s founder & Electroloom’s team
Danit Peleg. Interlaced. Electroloom. These three names are building the foundations of the fashion industry’s future. Their uses of 3D printing has known a viral success, but beyond that, from a professional point of view it’s their vision that matters. They re-think the manufacturing process of fashion, develop a new way to foster the outbreak of the next generation fabric and create a 3D printed textile which broaden our... Read More
Tips for 3D Printing the Internet of Things
What’s happening on the front lines of 3D printing for the internet of things? This is a very important question because we are all witnessing an overlap of ‘3DP for IoT’, and today we are going to show you why this is becoming the next “it” sector and how YOU can get involved. You’ve probably already seen commercials that talk about the “Internet of Things” like the CISCO commercial below,... Read More
3D Printing Uses: Mass Customization
Last week, I went in length about the different reasons why you should consider additive manufacturing for production. I gave many reasons among which the most controversial is probably that it’s not easy to find the right manufacturer and that factories are not always willing to take your orders. 3D printing on the contrary is offering a solution with no upfront costs. I also stated that there are in fact four “product categories”... Read More
Sculpteo & HP Sprout team up to make 3D Printing easier!
Today we’re proud to announce that all the Sculpteo features are directly accessible in one click from the computer, scanner and drafting surface of Sprout by HP. 3D printing has often been criticized for having a steep learning curve, used only by people skilled in CAD or willing to dedicate months to learn only the basics. This is an idea that we at Sculpteo have always fought, which is apparent when you use our platform; we... Read More
3D Printing 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
