Itâ€™s an incredible way of making your imagination real: whatever you want to do or have dreamt of doing, 3D Printing Systems can take the idea and turn it into a physical reality. While 3D print technology has been around for over 20 years, itâ€™s only now that lapsing patents on early technology has created affordable 3D printers for a vast array of modern businesses....
he latest entry in Autodeskâ€™s 123D line of 3D design tools,Â 123D CreatureÂ gives iPad owners the power to sculpt and paint their own three-dimensional creatures and then share them with the community, export them as a 3D mesh, or have them sent to a 3D printing service to be transformed into real stuff. 123D CreaturesÂ has a lot of depth for a tablet-based amateur design app, yet...
There is a lot of Â talk about how great 3D printing is already, and how it is going to change the world. Some people believe this is just all hype or a fad that is going to end soon. While this may or bay not be true for the home user, in industry it is a real game changer. 3D printing is “worth my time,...

Our UP range of 3D printers are being used to create parts for model aircraft. DudeÂ from Nitrodude has been using his UP Plus to make parts he can’t get anywhere else for his model aircraft. In this example he has created a handle for hisÂ balsa USA Pup. This is another example of how 3D printers have found to be useful outside of theÂ realmÂ prototyping. Before 3D...
In this video by eva they discuss Ben’s new 3D printer, an UP Mini. How it has changed the way he works and comparing it to the popular Shapeways printing service. You can see on Prometheus5Â blog hisÂ firstÂ impressionsÂ of the MiniÂ and what he has been making on it. Â The nice thing about the printer is that I can start it when I wake up in the morning,...
CSIRO in Australia is 3D printing tags from its very own 3D printing facility, Lab 22, in Melbourne. The tags are used for tracking of marine life in the oceans and are printed overnight and then shipped to Tasmania where marine scientists are trialing them. Tags are made of titanium for several reasons: the metal is strong, resists the salty corrosiveness of the marine environment,...
You know something is big when the President of the United States of America talks about it in their State of the Union speech. â€œThere are things we can do, right now, to accelerate this trend. Last year, we created our first manufacturing innovation institute in Youngstown, Ohio. A once-shuttered warehouse is now a state-of-the art lab where new workers are mastering the 3D printing...
