How A Jewelry Company Is Making $250,000 Pieces Using 3D Printing And Google Earth

How A Jewelry Company Is Making $250,000 Pieces Using 3D Printing And Google Earth | 3D Printing - Print Me If You Dare! | Scoop.it
First came the 3D-printed gun and 3-D printed internal organs. Now, better late than never: the 3D-printed engagement ring -- or pearl pendant, or diamond necklace, or really any piece of jewelry you can fathom
Yuven Naidoo's insight:

The perfect ring for the one doesn't have to be a pre-designed selection of various jewellery boutiques, you can now be able to design the perfect ring for that perfect person of yours with the help of 3D printing. Be able to design, evaluate and produce such a product is really a revolutionary stepping stone the industry as it not waisting valuable material in the rapid development and evaluation stage but it has the assurity  that if the customer has placed the order for it, it is the right item they wanted so they is no chances for mistakes to happen.

Patient's Face Reconstructed Using 3D-Printed Parts

Patient's Face Reconstructed Using 3D-Printed Parts | 3D Printing - Print Me If You Dare! | Scoop.it
Stephen Power, a 29-year-old Welsh man who was badly injured in a 2012 motorcycle crash, underwent major reconstructive surgery on his face and now
Yuven Naidoo's insight:

A bit of Robocop nostalgia but imagine being able fix your bones instead of replacing them. From the desk of a tinker to the medical field, 3D printing is gone from printing bobble heads in your garage to printing fragment of your bones, such as part of your skull that was damage in a road accident. Now whilst is the same process, they are not exactly printing this model of out ABS plastics like a normal 3D printer, this is using titanium, the closest substance to adamantium (thats wolverine bone material FYI) to form a strong model to be printed that custom fit for your body and will have a greater restoration rate than the generic model.

3D Printing is Revolutionizing Special Effects - Legacy Effects - YouTube

Subscribe to Legacy Effects on YouTube: http://bit.ly/15mkX9A Take a look at how 3D Printing has changed the world of Special Effects Legacy Effects has been...
Yuven Naidoo's insight:

The involvement of 3D printing in multimedia industry, specifically special effects and prop development has been blown out of proportion. As shown in the video, 3D printing has made prop and special effect manufacturing very time savy and more user friendly as traditional manufacturing will require the creator to have the abilities to design and manufacture a certain item, for example they would have to draw a working drawing of a certain prop and then also be able to sculpt the prop, which requires two different skill sets to master, some of which designers might not have. Along with this, rapid prototyping is extremely easier to develop and deploy that traditional clay modelling and with faster approval times, more time can be set to completing the finished product.

3D printed drone ushers in era of disposable aircraft | ZDNet

3D printed drone ushers in era of disposable aircraft | ZDNet | 3D Printing - Print Me If You Dare! | Scoop.it
Low cost UAVs such as this could be sent on one-way search or reconnaissance missions, say engineers.
Yuven Naidoo's insight:

We all know that military equipment takes a harsh chuck out of the tax payers money every year, and whilst it is for a good cause, some of use feel that there could be better ways things could be implemented. For example, a predator drone, a revolution in UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) technology and great for situations where a human life would be in grave danger, but the cost of 4 million US dollar per unit does mean they should be that expendable. In this article, it shows that it is possible to have essential a paperplate (some disposable and readily available) compared to china crockery (elegant but scarce) for reconnaissance and/or search and rescue missions that are cheap, easy to manufacture and available for rapid deployment

Astronaut Ready to Take 3D Printing Into the Final Frontier (Video)

Astronaut Ready to Take 3D Printing Into the Final Frontier (Video) | 3D Printing - Print Me If You Dare! | Scoop.it
One NASA astronaut launching to the International Space Station in May is ready to 3D print in space. Astronaut Reid Wiseman, bound for the station in May, is looking forward to setting up a 3D printer on the orbiting outpost.
Yuven Naidoo's insight:

3D Printing and the Final Frontier have been in the news pretty recently but a lot of the possibilities are very theoretical and look good on paper but practicality not so much. This however isn't like that news, NASA is wanting to send a 3D Printer to the International Space Station (ISS) as a effort to reduce the funding cost for maintenance of the station. For example if a part was to break on the station and all of the spare parts have been used, A rocket would have to been sent up carry a payload which would of consisted of many things but the main issue was the part needed to rushed to the station, so its not so much the cost of the part itself, its nevertheless shipping cost involved. Like everyone on this planet, no one likes paying for shipping, it just an annoying cost added to your bill, likewise NASA doesn't want to spend their precious funding on shipping so by sending up a 3D printer, not only are they saving on shipping but also weight on the station as by having a manufacturing plant on demand, the need for spares would be pointless as you would be able to made to order parts when there is a problem.

"Why do this? Because it's awesome."
Yuven Naidoo's insight:

3D Printing has allowed dreams that once seemed impossible to become reality but in turn it has also had made life easier to mankind.
For example, a tape measure would not of been an item on the average person's mind to 3D print because its seems basically impossible to print something so complex and actually make it work but an engineer going by the name of Brian did exactly the opposite and challenged the odds to essential prove that nothing is possible
