Inspired by the brilliant getaway mechanism of octopi and squids who use a blast of water to propel themselves away from danger, researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering in Germany have developed a similarly stealthy prop...
If 3D printing is truly going to revolutionize how we produce everything from cars, to computers, to weapons, it's going to have to move past the current limitations of plastic as a printing material. And what better place to start than a next-genera...
Laboratory advances hint at how additive manufacturing technology could change the way some electronic devices are made.
The Form 1 works out of the box, making professional-grade 3D printing simple and affordable
Propellers are loud and dangerous, but what's the alternative? A team of researchers think 3D printing and cephalopods might be the answer.
Buttercup is a duck that doesn't walk quite like any other — thanks to a 3D-printed left foot. Buttercup was hatched at a Arlington, Texas, high school with his left foot turned backwards. That...
Planetary Resources' plan to scour the heavens and find asteroids to mine may seem a little out there as far as startup ideas go, but that hasn't stopped some big names from backing the company. Today, that list just got a little bigger -- 3D printin...
Innovative collaboration will transform the manufacturing of asteroid prospecting spacecraft ROCK HILL, South Carolina, June 26, 2013 - 3D Systems (NYSE:D
MakerBot founder Bre Pettis, the poster child for mainstream 3-D printing, merges his company with an industrial printing giant.
Inexpensive 3-D printers aimed at consumers are toys, not the factories of the future.
Planetary Resources launched a Kickstarter campaign for
In its next generation of jet engines, General Electric Co. plans to use a new, and possibly revolutionary, technology.
Formlabs is bringing down the costs of a better 3-D printing technique, but must survive a patent lawsuit.
It's clear that 3-D printing has reached its inflection point. And perhaps its hype point, too. We've built a magical aura around it — sci-fi style replicator! — but the fact is that 3-D printing is really, still, an immature technology.
