The Gartner Hype Cycle graphic has been used since 1995 to highlight the common pattern of overenthusiasm, disillusionment and eventual realism that accompanies each new technology and innovation. The Hype Cycle Special Report is released annually to track 'emerging' technologies along this cycle and provide guidance on when organizations should adopt them for maximum impact and value. 3D Printing has been steadily climbing to the peak of 'Inflated Expectations' over the past few years and now sits on top, poised for the drop into the 'Trough of Disillusionment, or is it.
EFF is leading efforts to keep 3D printing technologies open and patent-free by engaging crowdsourced effort at identification of prior art within the challenge period of any new 3D printing-related patent filings.
The Matrix 3D builds an object one paper sheet at a time. It interleaves sheets of everyday office paper with layers of an adhesive that binds them. As the object rises up from the print surface (it takes ten sheets of paper to build up one millimeter of the finished object), tungsten carbide blades sculpt away excess paperThe Matrix 3D creates 3d models by binding sheets of paper using a water-based adhesive and then cutting away the excess paper on each layer.
