3D Slash, a 3D piece of cake
3D Slash software was born from an observation: great things are possible with 3D printing, but CAD software is just too complex and hermetic for a non-designer audience. So in order to make 3D printing more accessible, we have to make the modeling process easier. How? By looking to our childhood for inspiration: with building blocks. 3D Slash allows you to create 3D models by adding or removing cube-based units. It’s the same... Read More

3D Printing Resolution on Multicolor Prints: the complete Q&A
Being able to construct an object through 3D printing—directly in color to boot—is a very enticing prospect. To achieve this, some 3D printer manufacturers have developed technologies that allow color to be added directly during the 3D printing process. Objects created through this process serve as mock-ups or are ornamental in nature, owing to their mechanical weaknesses. This is characteristic of this new technology, which is... Read More
