i.materialise.com - 3D printing platform

http://i.materialise.com/

 

3D printing platform similar to Shapeway, Sculpteo


Nice features, including a easy price / strength / detail comparaison of different materials (large variety). Samples can be ordered.
Also some tutorials and "design kits" for some objects for you to customize : door handles, lamps, book holders

"Can I just pay ?" lets you order and pay for your design without having to create -yet another- account. Probably get a deck of samples, they look cool, just have to get my phone back first.
They use this sort of Mendeleiv based periodic table of materials. Nice Finish section too, lots to be learned there, and very visual. Help us get a hold of what you might get far better than I've seen on any other sites.

Should be better known

Disney Research - 3D printed Optics

Disney Research - 3D printed Optics | 3D printing - Mashup | Scoop.it

Printed Optics is a new approach to creating custom optical elements for interactive devices using 3D printing. Printed Optics enable sensing, display, and illumination elements to be directly embedded in the body of an interactive device. Using these elements, unique display surfaces, novel illumination techniques, custom optical sensors, and robust embedded components can be digitally fabricated for rapid, high fidelity, customized interactive devices.

 

Printed Optics is part of our long term vision for the production of interactive devices that are 3D printed in their entirety. Future devices will be fabricated on demand with user-specific form and functionality. Printed Optics explores the possibilities for this vision afforded by today’s 3D printing technology.

Reuters reports that Meg Whitman has a laundry list of things to do at HP: Arrest a rapid decline in its personal computer unit, compete better on enterprise services..

"Companies like HP have to look at where the next big opportunity is," said Terry Wohlers, president of research firm Wohlers Associates Inc. "3D printing is a good fit."

 

"With their strong marketing and distribution muscle, HP is in a very good position to dominate the market, and they could buy up most of the companies in this business if they wanted to because it's a relatively small but fast-growing and vibrant area"

3D printing may happen in space

3D printing technology will soon extend itself beyond planet Earth as NASA works on a new 3D printer that could build space stations and satellites.

 

NASA is working on a 3D printer called SpiderFab that could create large structures for use in space. Building with SpiderFab could make rockets lighter. It may also facilitate easy repairs for astronauts.

 

But a 3D printer on the ground level is not the only part of Nasa's SpiderFab project. According to Space.com, there is great potential for bringing 3D printers to space so that tools, structures and materials could be printed by astronauts on site.
