Makerbot Digitizer Will Let Anyone Scan and Print Physical Items in 3D

Makerbot Digitizer Will Let Anyone Scan and Print Physical Items in 3D | 3D PRINTING DEVELOPMENTS | Scoop.it

"Sort of like a copy/paste for real-world objects, the Digitizer works using two lasers and a webcam. The webcam sees where the lasers are shining off of an item, and wraps all those points up into a plan for a 3D model that can then be printed."

Daniel Booth's insight:

3D printers are great but what if you would like to recreate something you already have? Makerbot brings the Digitizer that is a scanner of objects then then can be sent to a printer

Experience 3D printing in Denver, leave with custom beer bottle opener

Experience 3D printing in Denver, leave with custom beer bottle opener | 3D PRINTING DEVELOPMENTS | Scoop.it

In Denver, USA 

"..is offering that experience starting next week (March 23 at 1 p.m.). For $30, inquiring minds will be able to design a simple beer bottle opener that includes their initials and watch the 3D manufacturing process while enjoying a beverage and some light snacks."

Daniel Booth's insight:

Next time you go to your friend’s house for a few drinks imagine bringing out a personalised bottle opener that you can actually say 'yeah, i made this', well that is possible.

Starting March 23 Denver 3D Printing Store is offering this opportunity with 2 MakerBot Replicator 2s and a Stratasys uPrint.

Will 3D Printing Change the World? | Off Book | PBS

"..3D Printing could have a game-changing impact on consumer culture, copyright and patent law, and even the very concept of scarcity on which our economy is based. From at-home repairs to new businesses, from medical to ecological developments, 3D Printing has an undeniably wide range of possibilities which could profoundly change our world."

Daniel Booth's insight:

If you don't know what 3D Printing is, this video is a good place to start

Great examples of how 3D Printing can be used to benefit humanity. The creation of food and organs is already becoming a reality!

Brandon Smart's curator insight, March 20, 2013 6:48 AM

PBS presents this video with the help of numerous personalities throughout the technological world, such as writers for popular technology magazines such as Wired. This video presents more basic information on 3D Printing, but expands on this by giving examples of how it can benefit individual fields. Of particular interest is the segment presented by Joseph Flaherty on 3D Printing in Medicine. This is an excellent example of how in the future, this technology will be used to benefit humanity. This will be very useful in my paper. The people involved in this video conclude that 3D Printing will be massive in the near future, and I need to find more sources to corroborate their views.

Ryan Murphy's curator insight, March 21, 2013 9:38 PM

A great introduction to 3D Printing.

Dreambox is a vending machine with a built-in 3D printer | Digital Trends | 3D PRINTING DEVELOPMENTS | Scoop.it
Only limited by the imagination of the user, the Dreambox vending machine allows anyone to upload and create a 3D model without having to spend thousands of dollars on a 3D printer.
Daniel Booth's insight:

With this you can simple walk up with a 3D model you've already created on a usb and plug it in and print, you are then free to walk away and do whatever it is required. Upon finish you receive a code which you type in and are able to collect your model out of one of the draws below

3D Printing Robot Produces Chairs And Tables From Recycled Waste

3D Printing Robot Produces Chairs And Tables From Recycled Waste | 3D PRINTING DEVELOPMENTS | Scoop.it

Two years ago, a Dutch student named Dirk Vander Kooij was designing furniture and preparing for his graduation project when he was inspired by an old 3D printer. So he got his hands on an industrial robot from a Chinese production line and reprogrammed it into a 3D printer to print furniture using recycled materials from old refrigerators."

Daniel Booth's insight:

This is the future, not only 3D printing but being able to use recyclable materials to produce furniture and not only in 1 design, variety and uniqueness are the key element here, and to be able to do it in 3 hours.

Why stop at chairs? What’s stopping any other product being designed this very way?

Jake Sieben's curator insight, March 22, 2013 9:00 AM

This article shows how 3D printing can be used to make practical things, such as chairs, out of recycled materials.

Chandan Gupta's curator insight, March 31, 2013 10:42 PM

The thing is why just not getting more than it. More and more things could be produced by it.

First 3D printed skull implant made in South Windsor | ReminderNews

First 3D printed skull implant made in South Windsor | ReminderNews | 3D PRINTING DEVELOPMENTS | Scoop.it

"A revolutionary medical milestone has been reached in the United States, and its origins are in Connecticut. For the first time, a polymer skull implant created from a 3D printer was used in surgery in the U.S., and that implant was designed and manufactured at Oxford Performance Materials (OPM) of South Windsor."

Daniel Booth's insight:

Think of it this way:

1. A person who has an impact to the skull goes to hospital,

2. Undergo the critical MRI and CAT scan,

3. This allows a slice file to be created which is then sent to the OPM staff where,

4. 3D printing recreates the desired part.
