Checkout how a 3D printer and some AI made a “new” Rembrandt! The website https://www.nextrembrandt.com/ is amazing in how it lets you zoom in at the pixel level and the detail is astounding. With AI and 3D printers great artists may live on to create new work in a unique way.
Amazing backstory here about a young girl being helped by a prosthetic made with 3D printing and throwing out the first pitch in a bunch of MLB games including game 4 of the World Series!
The hurricanes have been heartbreaking and the rebuilding process will be slow for many. This is often due to money, but also can be related to resources. Here’s a great read about 3D printing a house. Maybe someday this could be used to quickly rebuild or make a house stronger and less likely to be damaged.
Are you excited about the Top Gun sequel? Top Gun vaulted the aircraft carrier and the Navy into public consciousness. There are some schools of thought out there that even the idea of an aircraft carrier may be obsolete on today’s battlefield, but perhaps 3D printing can make these “floating cities” more flexible and efficient.

The team at 3Doodler is back on Kickstarter with an awesome Star Trek application of their 3D printing pen. This special edition of their pen and included stencils will let you make some iconic Star Trek items from phasers to ships to communicators. Let your creative and artistic side by supporting them on Kickstarter and then going where no one has gone before!
Las Vegas may be the last place you think of when you think of 3D printing, however it may have helped develop that new fun slot machine you’re playing. The team at TriMech have a great video and case study about how 3D printing is cutting lead time and cost of slot machine development. Don’t know if you’ve ever seen the inside of one, but it’s essentially a computer married to a change machine, so from speakers to spinning wheels to exterior 3D theming there are lots of places to apply the technology. I wonder how long before we see our first 3D printing themed slot machine?
Imagine being able to print a magnet in complex geometry with superior properties to conventional magnets. This is the promise of printing with magnetized filament allowing for precise control of the magnetic field in nearly any shape desired for an application. Magnets, energy and electronics are all intertwined, so no doubt we’ll be seeing more applications of precision magnets in the future.
