Recently I’ve been experimenting with 3D modelling which made me realise the importance of materials and 3D printer reliability. After all, no one wants to spend time building and perfecting a model if you can print it in its full glory.
It has been such an eventful and exciting year for the 3D printing industry! 2015 is almost over, so we decided to give you a quick highlight of the Top 3 projects that caught our attention throughout the year and really inspired us.
This Season’s Perfect Geek Gift – A 3D Printer! Christmas is around the corner and this means only one thing – it’s time to start planning your festive shopping! Finding the perfect gift is not always easy, finding the perfect geek gift is on the verge of being truly stressful!
The Robox 3D printer from Cel was launched as a kickstarter campaign less than two years ago and it’s already the most popular beginners machine on the market. It impresses at first sight with an elegant and expensive-feeling design. Once I started printing with it, I realized that this printer has so much more to offer than just a fancy look.
I have been waiting for this since day one of my internship at 3D Print Works and here it is – my very first 3D print project! Entering the futuristic world of 3D printing is very exciting. However, we are yet to reach the point when you just choose a cool 3D model, tell your 3D printer to make it, sit back and relax. Here are some things I discovered which might help you.
This will be the first part in a series whereby we 3D print objects and then test them to check their resiliency when up against real life everyday conditions! This mug printed in Flame Red ABS filament is the first 3D object to be put to the ultimate test! We have been testing the mug for six weeks, putting it through a series of trials.
The “Touching the Prado” exhibition has demonstrated yet another way that 3d printing in arts and culture can improve the world on a deeply moving human level. In order to give blind and visually impaired people a realistic sense of the paintings, 3D printing in the Prado has reproduced five of their most famous paintings.
When it’s time to plan 3d print outs and the next filament you will use, we are here to help! Since the arrival of 3D printing different types of filament have burst into the industry – but how do you know whether a filament is good quality or not? What questions should you ask the supplier?
