If you think that piece of plastic above is just a toy, you'd be wrong. It's an actual gun. That fires standard handgun bullets. That's 3D printed. Yes, printed.

Filastruder: A Cheaper Alternative for 3D Printer Materials Raises More Than $207,000 : The Droid Guy

Filastruder: A Cheaper Alternative for 3D Printer Materials Raises More Than $207,000 : The Droid Guy | 3D Printing 311 | Scoop.it

The Filastruder is about to go after getting enough funds through crowdfunding. Currently, the startup project that promises to come up with cheap 3D printer materials has now gained an astonishing pledge amounting to more than $207,000 as of today.

Based on the Kickstarter page of the Filastruder, the product aims to develop a strong but cheaper filament extruder for a 3D printer. The project was only launched on March 25 with only a $5,000 goal. The duration for funding is only until April 24. But, surprisingly, it just took a matter of weeks for the targeted amount to be reached. Then, even though the $5,000 target was already fulfilled, donors still kept on coming in. Today its backers have gone up to 846 with an overall donation amounting to $207,198. This could only mean one thing; that 3 days from now, the project will start.

The influx of donation for the project just shows the popularity of 3D printing and the high demand of people for its materials. As we have featured on our previous articles covering 3D printing, the process enables people to produce things ranging from common household materials, miniature vehicles, body parts, drugs, working parts of guns, ammunitions, headphones and more. The report I made on the 3D Images website, which I based on several news sources, even showed that architects are now looking to construct a building out of 3D printing.

 

While it is true that anyone can produce almost anything with a 3D printer, one problem of this continuously emerging technology is the cost of materials. According to Tim Elmore, the founder of the Filastruder project, the current filament used for 3D printing can cost around $40 per kilogram or more. But since his Filastruder project only uses plastic pellets that only cost around $5 per kilogram, the price for the production of filament will be greatly reduced.

j.c.karich » ear adapter | 3D Printing 311 | Scoop.it

I’m probably not the only one who thinks in-ear

headphones are not the more comfortable but more
important than this is the fact that is headphones allow
you to isolate from the rest sometimes but what if you
could decide either tu use your headphones inside or
over you ears? you could still be hearing what happens
around you and still listening to music at the same time.
This adapter can hold you in ear headphones just a little
over you ears, and the shape intents to be open to
ambient sounds so the will mix in with the music.

A 3D Printed Spaceship On The Scale Of A Human Hair? Hello Nanoscribe 3D Printer

A 3D Printed Spaceship On The Scale Of A Human Hair?  Hello Nanoscribe 3D Printer | 3D Printing 311 | Scoop.it

Last year, a group of researchers at the Vienna University of Technology in Austria refined a 3D printing technique that allowed the construction of sophisticated structures (an F1 racecar and a cathedral) smaller than dust mites in about 4 minutes. Now, a company called Nanoscribe GmbH that emerged from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany has made a 3D printer called the Photonic Professional GT which can produce detailed structures on a similar scale but faster.

In fact, the technique was able to produce a spaceship (from the Wing Commander line of video games) from a CAD file that measures 125µm x 81µm x 26.8µm (on the order of the width of a human hair) in less than 50 seconds.

Low Fi High Tech Headphones by Jckarich - Thingiverse

Low Fi High Tech Headphones by Jckarich - Thingiverse | 3D Printing 311 | Scoop.it

The Low Fi Hi Tech headphones is a research Project to find out a way to create a fully functional pair of audio headphones without any manufactured part, this means all the parts of this headset are raw materials, such as wire, tape, solder, magnets and of course 3D printed parts.
The most challenging part was to make the right combination of 3D printed elements such as the speaker piece, the ear part had to be a good acoustic case and should to include a holder for the magnet, the speaker itself is a very thin printed part with a very thin rail to be able to insert the copper wire in it.
Once I got that part working, I decided to go further, drawing the plug to fit a standard Jack connector, this was a very tricky part because the model of this was a very thin part to print and creating the connections only with wire was a real challenge. Again it worked! And even if many people would hesitate to plug this weird looking but familiar plug, I can assure you it works with no risks on jamming inside your portable audio device.

Anyway, the sound quality is very nice against all expectations but will necessitate a power amplifier to be louder when using only portable sources like pods or phones.

The files are open to anyone who want’s to try to make a pair of these!

Special thanks to Martin De Bie, Hannah Perner Wilson, Jean Baptiste Labrune whose work inspired me a lot in this particular Project.

These days, 3D printers are laying down plastics, metals, resins, and other materials in whatever configurations creative people can dream up. But when the next 3D printing revolution comes, you'll be able to eat it. 

Engineers and gourmands alike are dabbling with edible substances as raw materials for 3D printing. Among their hoped-for results: previously unachievable food shapes and textures, personalized grub, and varied menus on future long-term voyages to Mars. "There is some very cool stuff going on," says Jeffrey Lipton, CTO of Seraph Robotics and a Ph.D. candidate at Cornell University.

Is it Too Late to Invest in 3D Printing?

Is it Too Late to Invest in 3D Printing? | 3D Printing 311 | Scoop.it

3D printing may be the next game changer in technology. The industry has been around for a while and the stocks had a great run in 2012. But we’ve seen a pullback since the Consumer Electronics Show in January, which coincided with the peak. I’m excited about the industry for three reasons:

 

•The possible emergence of the dental market.
•Falling prices for “prosumer” printers.
•Recent acquisitions offering padding to the upcoming quarter. Additionally, now that we’ve had a pullback, forward valuations for the two premier companies are reasonable.
