Our 3D Printing News – Bagpipes and New Possibilities!

Our 3D Printing News – Bagpipes and New Possibilities!
Earlier in the week we revealed the first part of our interview with Donald Lindsay, musician and inventor of instruments. His latest invention is a 3D print of bagpipes. The second and final part of this 3d printing news explores fresh ways of printing and how 3D printing might change the music industry. 

The Latest 3D Object to be Printed? Hoots Mon, it’s the Bagpipes!

The Latest 3D Object to be Printed? Hoots Mon, it’s the Bagpipes!
 Over the past year we have enjoyed experimenting with a vast range of 3d objects – and now we have a 3d object within the musical world to add to our repertoire! Donald Lindsay, who is a bagpiper and also something of an inventor, approached us for the use of our filament. 

What Will You Make with Metallic 3D FIlament in 2015?

What Will You Make with Metallic 3D FIlament in 2015?
A brand new metallic 3d filament is being developed for FDM 3D printers by 3D Print Works. While quality 3D printers such as Markerbot, Flashforge  and Ultimaker  are conducive to producing well-made products, the development of brand new types of filament is essential to the growth of the 3D printing industry. 

The Science of 3D Printing with Different Materials: Which is Best?

The Science of 3D Printing with Different Materials: Which is Best?
In two previous interviews with Polymer Technology lecturer Colin Hindle we discussed ABS material and Temperature. Colin has had over thirty years experience working in the plastics and polymer industry and 3dprintworks we have really enjoyed collaborating with Colin to develop a range of materials.

The Science of ABS: Answers to Your 3D Printing Questions

The Science of ABS: Answers to Your 3D Printing Questions
In a previous article we carried out an interview with Polymer Technology lecturer Colin Hindle, who has had over thirty years experience working in the plastics and polymer industry. At 3dprintworks we have really enjoyed collaborating with Colin to develop a range of materials.

The Science of Temperature and 3D Printing

The Science of Temperature and 3D Printing
This is the second in our series “The Science of…” where we ask Polymer Technology lecturer Colin Hindle questions related to 3D printing. Colin has over thirty years experience in the plastics and polymer industries and has been wonderful to work with as we develop new materials together.

The Science of 3D Printing with ABS

The Science of 3D Printing with ABS
Over the next few weeks we will explore “The science of...” different issues related to 3D printing. This week we are exploring the magic of ABS filament! We will explore these topics through a series of interviews with Colin Hindle, Lecturer in Polymer Technology at Edinburgh Napier University, who is developing materials alongside us at 3DPrintWorks.

What Material Do You 3D Print with on World Elephant Day?

What Material Do You 3D Print with on World Elephant Day?
It is World Elephant Day today – so let’s all sit up and take notice of the dangers facing these wonderfully majestic and altruistic animals. Elephants have roamed the earth for around 55 million years, but throughout history they have faced hardships such as ivory poaching and the destruction of their habitats.
