"Watch this amazing live demonstration of the value of using 3D printed tools for injection molding. It takes place at the Stratasys booth at EuroMold 2013 and is presented by Michael Anton, Senior Pre-Sales and Application Engineer, EMEA."
We received a really endearing message in our inbox the other day that was just too sweet for me not to post in full: My name is Pieter Scholtz I’m a high school student in South Africa ,I was wondering if you could help me with a post, I would be...
Researchers have discovered that a naturally-occurring compound can be incorporated into 3D printing processes to create medical implants out of non-toxic polymers. The compound is riboflavin, which is better known as vitamin B2.
Meshmixer is the ultimate tool for 3D mashups and remixes. Mash, mix, sculpt, stamp or paint your own 3D designs, or start from over 10,000 models in the Gallery. Now includes direct 3D print support.
Brian Robin's insight:
Autodesk 123 releases new, cool updates to their Meshmixer CAD program that they originally released late last year. Now you can customize settings in Meshmixer specifically set to the type of 3D printer you are using. Did I mention that it's FREE!
A NorthWest company with an awesome product line that, in my opinion, greatly surpasses the big competition.
I spoke with them at the ACTE conference in Las Vegas; they really are an impressive bunch of Engineers that are excited about offering a quality product that uses various ARDUINO boards They even offer their stl. files for those of us who want to use our 3D PRINTERS as well.
Stay tuned for their QUAD-COPTER with GPS capabilities coming soon
IT'S ELECTRONICS, MANUFACTURING AND ROBOTICS ALL ROLLED INTO ONE!
Sketchup is a great, free, introduction to CAD software program; now there is a way to transfer files created there into Solidworks. This would allow for designs done in Sketchup to be saved as stl. files that your classroom 3D printer can recognize. How cool is that?
Our organization, iLab // Haiti has brought the first two 3D printers (Replicator 1's) to the country of Haiti. We're teaching them to 3D model using SketchUp and Rhino, with the hope of teaching Autodesk's Inventor.
