The TCT 2016 Start UP Zone returned bigger and better in 2016, providing newly established companies with a great opportunity to showcase their products and compete for the Startup Award and a prize of £10, 000. In this year’s competition, we saw 16 companies make their big TCT debut with products and services covering all the major areas.
In 2014, Danit Peleg hit the headlines with the 3D printed fashion collection she created for her graduate project at Shenkar. The Israeli designer created every single piece of the outfits, using a desktop 3D printer. Her collection ultimately became a statement that 3D printing can go way beyond haute couture catwalks.
It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for – after waiting for what seems like the time it would take to travel through intergalactic space and back, the next segment in the Star Wars saga has been released! As our Managing Director Ralph McNeill works with works with special effects when he’s not immersed in the world of 3D design and printing – we got to thinking about how additive manufacturing is changing the industry.
On this momentous day, we are celebrating how diy 3d printing has allowed bagpiper Donald Lindsay to 3D print brand new instruments here in Scotland. However, before we launch into the interview – does everyone know exactly who Saint Andrew was? Saint Andrew was the first disciple of Christ, preaching the gospel as he travelled all around the Black Sea and Greece.
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.
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.
When we first met local Glasgow band Crash Club they asked us if we could print a tree for their 3D music video. Why? Well, let’s just say that it involves a future imagining of a 3D printed utopia! So who are Crash Club?
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.
Karen Breneman, Founder of Meadowlark Yoga and MSc student in Human Anatomy at Edinburgh University, recently approached us with a very special 3D printing project. As the study of the human body and medical advancements become ever more prominent within the industry we were keen to help Karen with the range of anatomical 3D print outs she required.
