TinyBoy - $130 Open source 3D printer designed for students | 3D Printing | Scoop.it
TinyBoy is an open source 3D printer designed to fit for regular computer desk in the school. The size of the TinyBoy is only 15 x 15 x 22cm, much smaller than most of the 3D printer on the market.

3D Printed Jewelry

3D Printed Jewelry | 3D Printing | Scoop.it

 

Last week we had some fun making an array of cookie cutters on our 3D printer, and we learned a few lessons about sizing, and…cookie dough. :) This week we decided to explore the jewelry options that were out there.

 

We found lots of fun designs for earrings, necklaces, and even a few keychains, but by themselves they were too boring for our taste. So we gave them the Brit + Co. treatment.

Design News - Engineering Materials - 3D-Printed Eyeglasses Are Fit for a King | 3D Printing | Scoop.it

 

Dutch company LUXeXceL has developed a proprietary process to print plastic lenses and other non-imaging optical-quality components.

 

The company has 3D-printed complete pairs of eyeglasses.

 

We've told you about 3D-printing your own analog camera -- but minus the lens.

 

The day when you can 3D-print that too may not be far away. Dutch company LUXeXceL, which has developed a proprietary process to print plastic lenses and other non-imaging optical-quality components, has 3D-printed complete pairs of eyeglasses to demonstrate the capabilities of the process

.

The eyewear, made for the Dutch king and queen, was made in a single print job, including both frame and lenses, using the company's Printopical technology. No post-processing steps such as grinding or polishing are needed with this technology. It prints lenses with smooth surfaces from CAD files.

 

The lenses can be combined with colored and textured surfaces, such as frames, in the same object -- no mean feat.

Imagine a future in which a device connected to a computer can print a solid object.

 

A future in which we can have tangible goods as well as intangible services delivered to our desktops or highstreet shops over the Internet.

 

And a future in which the everyday "atomization" of virtual objects into hard reality has turned the mass pre-production and stock-holding of a wide range of goods and spare parts into no more than an historical legacy.

 

 

Such a future may sound like it is being plucked from the worlds of Star Trek. However, while transporter devices that can instantaneously deliver us to remote locations may remain a fantasy, 3D printers capable of outputting physical objects have been in development for over two decades and are starting to present a whole host of new digital manufacturing capabilities. 3D printing may therefore soon do for manufacturing what computers and the Internet have already done for the creation, processing and storage of information.

 

Such a possibility has also started to capture mainstream media attention.

 

The Economist, for example, has now published several articles on 3D printing, including this one on The Printed World.

 

The following provides an overview of 3D printing technologies and their present and likely future application.

 

For a full list of 3D printer manufacturers, as well as initiatives and organizations pioneering their application, please see my 3D Printing Directory.

 

Or for a six minute overview, just watch my video below. Oh, and for 70,000 words on the subject, you may be interested in my book 3D Printing: The Next Industrial Revolution.
