According to the Associate Press:
A federal judge in Seattle has issued a temporary restraining order to stop the release of blueprints to make untraceable and undetectable 3D-printed plastic guns.
Defense Distributed has complied with the order. Stay tuned. So many conflicting rights in this case. As I’ve heard said, “when rights collide, courts decide.”
Several years ago we wrote about Cody Wilson of Defense Distributed about 3D printed guns and he’s back in the news this week in a big way. Through a settlement with the state department Continue reading
We’ve seen before printed soles or inserts for shoes, but Nike moves it up a level printing the “upper” part of the shoe. Continue reading
This was one of the coolest things I had seen in quite sometime in regard to space research. It’s one thing to explore new places and keep humans alive, it’s another thing to use space to benefit those of us still on the planet. Continue reading
NASA’s ISS mockup in Houston that I was privileged to tour.
We’ve written about Made in Space before and it now looks like their footprint in the ISS will be expanding even more! Made in Space already has 2 printers in orbit Continue reading
Saw Oceans 8 this week and was surprised at the big role 3D printing and scanning played in the plot. No plot spoilers here that you won’t see in the previews Continue reading
I’m originally from Wisconsin, so an article about 3D printed cheese was sure to catch my attention! In this case they’re using the sodium caseinate which is a natural protein/polymer Continue reading
We’ve talked about 3D printed food before, but this one caught my eye. My wife and I went to Australia for our honeymoon and of course when you’re down under trying Vegemite is a right of passage of sorts. Being a paste it’s well suited for extrusion, but what was interesting was how its yeasty salty goodness could create circuits that conduct electricity. I guess this is also further proof that people will try to 3D print everything eventually…
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.
