We’re at the 3D Print Show in London! As part of the Materials and Properties for Print conference, our co-founder will be giving a talk on filament at 3.30pm on May 21st. She will be discussing 3d printing with different types of materials in depth and offering advice on the problems you have come up against.
Hardly a week goes by without news of some new musical development reaching our ears – the latest being the “revamped” 3d violin. And having contributed to the musical success of a 3d printing video or two, we thought Jazz Appreciation Month would be a great time to explore how the music world and 3D printing are likely to marry over the coming years.
Try a few quick Google searches concerning 3d printing projects that involve wanting to make a “3d printed heart”, “3d printed kidney” or “3d printed lung”. What do you find? Most likely a quick answer stating: yes! We can do all of these things.
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?
The 3d printing process is transforming the way movies are made – the invention of 3d printers has significantly increased the turnaround time of costumes and props. Read on to discover the top 5 movies that have used the 3d printing process to their advantage!
In a rare occurrence I managed to grab 3dprintworks Chief Engineer/Designer Ralph for a chat about the company’s brand new production line. We discussed the machines’ capabilities and what types of filament we will be manufacturing – and I discovered that the objects we can print 3d may be about to change forever.
Over the past year we have been 3d printing cell phone covers as part of 3DHubs partnership with Fairphone. In December, Fairphone asked its community to submit a range of designs and then chose five. Now, customers can choose a design and select a 3D printer based on location.
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.
