Now you can 3D-print and play with your own Pou! Toyze, the first "app store" for 3D printed customizable game characters, announced that it has signed a licensing agreement with developers of the internationally popular mobile game app pet character, Pou.
"Plan B is an open source 3DP 3D printer. It uses binder and powder to create it´s parts. It can be built for €1000,- ($1300,-) if the parts are sourced right. It uses standard 3D printer parts and electronics, off the shelf inkjet components, 3D printed parts and a sturdy laser cut (or water cut) aluminium frame."
"Made from plant starches, Biome3D is a biodegradable plastic that combines easy processing and a superior print finish, while offering much higher print speeds. Developed in partnership with 3Dom Filaments."
All this makes the Edible Growth project, by the young but very talented Dutch industrial designer Chloé Rutzerveld, extremely interesting. Throughout 2014, she worked on a 3D food printing project that turned all questions and assumptions upside down.
"The new POROLAY line of filaments by inventor Kai Parthy, include Lay-Felt, Lay-Fomm, Gel-Layy and Lay-Tekkks. “This new revolutionary line consists of foamy, felty filaments with a porous structure,” explained the team at FormFutura. “With this filament you can build porous flexible objects.”
Brooklyn based designer Fleet Hower and 3D Hubs partner to release 3D printed Designer Puzzles: Lock-Nesters today. The Lock-Nester collection consists of six three-dimensional jigsaw puzzles that range in difficulty from 5 to 185 pieces. Upon launch, over 100 colour combinations will be released.
Scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have developed a 3D printed audio reading device that enables people with visual impairments to read text printed on papers, books, computer screens and other devices.
"So, what is FLUX? It's a very promising and intriguing desktop Delta 3D printer, whose versatility, abilities and price tag will doubtlessly turn quite a few heads in the 3D printing community.
As the team behind the FLUX reveals, this multi-functional 3D printer combines FDM (otherwise known as FFF) 3D printing technology with user-friendliness, simplicity and a theoretically unlimited amount of create functions like 3D scanning, laser-cutting etc. And what's more, they are aiming at private users through a compact, manageable and cool design, along with a relatively modest price tag in the region of $499 (early bird special) to $680. Doesn't sound terrible, right?"
"Could you imagine downloading a door knob as easily as the new Angry Birds game? Or printing off a spare bicycle part you found online? It could become an everyday occurrence, according to one of the pioneers of 3D printing."
"The MM1’s modular design comes with various interchangeable extrusion heads and additional accessories that let it print in materials such as wood-based filament, nylon, polycarbonate, conductive materials, chocolate, Play-Doh, ceramic, and standard PLA and ABS plastics.
MakerMex designed the MM1 to be capable of adapting to future developments in 3D printing technology. The team built the 3D printer using a modular design in which different pieces and applications can be interchanged to incorporate new features."
