Today is Halloween and hope you can find some way to incorporate 3D printing. Etsy is full of things to buy and of course you can come up with your own too. Note the picture up above is from a video rental store on my way to work. Yep, they still exist.
As a kid I didn’t have too many hobbies other than sports and video games, but one I did love was model rocketry. I remember riding my bike over to the local hobby store to get the latest Estes rocket to put together and launch (probably losing to a roof, tree or just in short order). From childhood rockets have always been a thing for me, so when I saw Relativity Space marrying together rockets and 3D printing I was thrilled. Other companies have 3D printed select components, but Relativity Space is essentially 3D printing the whole darn thing. Continue reading
Here’s your chance to fund an amazing game based on 3D scanning of Chernobyl on Kickstarter, but you only have a day or so left to do it! Continue reading
Maybe you’ve bought a print of a favorite painting. It’s of course not the original, but it looks beautiful in your home. Maybe 3D printing could provide the same thing for sculpture? One of the first examples I’ve seen of this is the art of Judith Klausner who has sculpted Oreo cookies of all things! Continue reading
No doubt you’ve seen the tragic images of the fire at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. It is estimated the structure could take years or even decades to restore. However, did you know that 3D scanning could be a huge help in this process? Continue reading
In the brewing process there are several waste products. One of those is distillers grain which is the leftover malted barely after the sugar/starch (which will become the alcohol through fermentation) has been extracted. Typically this waste is sold to farmers as feed for livestock as it’s rich in protein, but it also has the ability to be transformed into plastic and that means you could turn it into 3D printing filament.
