As Valentines Day is upon us once more, we wondered what amorous objects we could 3D print. After scouring Thingiverse, our Marketing Assistant Yaros found these very affectionate salt and pepper pots. He soon learned valuable lessons about how to deal with 3d problems like cross contamination when printing in two colours and cracks on your prints.
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.
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?
A fortnight ago we gave a lecture for the Technical Teachers Association (TTA), unveiling the Rocket Car project. The overall aim of the seminar was to give teachers a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths) project that uses 3D printing in different ways
