Israeli company MICRON3DP is hoping to shatter 3D printing expectations with its innovative glass 3D printer, capable of high resolution printing and layer thicknesses of as little as 100 microns.

"Just like a caterpillar, the 3D Cocooner spins delicate lightweight structures freely in space. With the help of a high-speed handling system, the spinneret is precisely controlled and glues a glass fibre into the desired bionic lattice shape with UV-curing resin."
"In collaboration with the MIT Glass Lab, the Mediated Matter group at the MIT Media Lab has produced a way to 3D print glass, creating intricate patterns from molten glass inside a kiln-like printer and giving a completely modern twist to the 4,500 year-old material."
"The VXC800 is a massive innovation in the 3D printing world ; it was the first continuous 3D printer. Its impact on 3D printing can be compared with the impact of Henry Ford’s assembly line on modern manufacturing! The VXC800 allows for building and unpacking to run concurrently. "
The impressive column created by architect and designer Sam Welham and Richard Beckett from London is a master piece that has generated considerable attention. It highlights the entire bandwidth of 3D print technology in architecture.
"A masters student at the Southern California Institute of Architecture in Los Angeles has developed a method of using a robotic arm to 3D print objects in a tank of gel, allowing freeform printing without the need for support structures and potentially adding an "undo" function to remove errors."
GE’s new Center for Additive Technology Advancement (CATA) looks like a futuristic set for a Stanley Kubrick movie. Everything seems to be white: the walls, the gleaming floors, even the noise from rows of laser-powered 3D printers near the entrance, quietly making everything from jet engine blades to oil valves. Located by a new highway …
We all know that sound travels in waves, which we can't see—but can certainly feel, given enough bass. Sound designer Ricky van Broekhoven and Eindhoven I.D. grad Olivier van Herpt have exploited this phenomena by connecting a speaker rig to a 3D printer; by playing music during the printing process,
French industrial 3D printer manufacturer Prodways has been growing quickly since its acquisition by publicly traded Groupe Gorgé. Last year, the company announced, in addition to the release of 14 materials, a range of nine different industrial 3D printers. Today, Prodways has established itself as a major industrial player through the purchase of two 3D …
GLASSMAKING began 4,500 years ago, in Mesopotamia. The industry’s first products were trinkets, such as beads and pendants, cast from moulds and carved by hand. But craftsmen quickly worked out how to make more practical stuff, such as jugs, bottles and drinking vessels, by coiling strands of molten glass around a sand or clay core of appropriate shape, which could then be shaken or scraped out after the glass had cooled.
An Italian engineer has gone from playing with sand to printing with it. Enrico Dini hopes to re-shape the world for the better by replicating natural objects with the D-Shape - one of the world's largest 3D printers.
"Yesterday marked the expiry of US Patent 5597589, "Apparatus for producing parts by selective sintering." This is one of the core patents in the 3D printing world.
The expiring patent is an old one, and while it is probably the most important in selective laser sintering printing, it isn’t the only one. There are literally dozen of other patents that are still valid that center around SLS."
With ARBURG Plastic Freeforming (AKF) standard granulated plastics are melted as in the injection moulding process. The AKF process makes use of 3D CAD files, which are read in directly by the freeformer. After start-up, everything else takes place automatically.
