"We all know that 3D printing has many uses, and as the technology has become more available, people from all different kinds of industries have been integrating additive manufacturing into their production process. One industry that’s capitalized on 3D printing technology is the fashion. In a recently opened exhibition titled “Layer by Layer,” London’s Fashion Space Gallery is highlighting the wares of a few fashion designers that create remarkable pieces using 3D printing."
"This card and pen holder was created to illustrate the range of possibilities using Stratasys' different 3D printing technologies. One half of the model is created using FDM technology in ABSi material - strong, light, durable and suitable for real production requirements. The second part is created using Inkjet multi-material jetting technology which deposits 2 photopolymer-based materials at the same time and mimics the precise look and feel of more complex end products. This part features extremely smooth surfaces, fine details and embedded writing in a separate material. Together, using both FDM and Inkjet technology, designers and manufacturers can cover the entire gamut of Fit, Form and Functional Prototyping and Rapid Manufacturing requirements!"
"This video shows a realtime recording of the 3D micro printing process by two-photon polymerization. We start with the CAD model of a Hellcat spaceship from Wing Commander Saga and use our 3D printer Photonic Professional GT to print a polymer model on the microscale. The final structure is then inspected with a scanning electron microscope (SEM). Overall printing time was less than 50 seconds for the ship with dimensions 125µm x 81µm x 26.8µm (l x w x h). The length of the spaceship is approximately equal to the diameter of a human hair."
Digital Arts Online CHI 2013: Constructables lets you draw on wood to guide a laser cutter Digital Arts Online The typical fabrication method meant that a designer would need to sit in front of a computer and fully complete the design, according to...
"Instead of using Illustrator to design a woodcut, a new project lets you draw each cut as you go for freer creativity.
Using a laser pointer as a knife, a project at the Computer Human Interaction conference lets users make custom creations out of wood and plastic without spending hours designing.
Called Constructables, the project from Germany's Hasso Plattner Institute uses a £50,000 industrial laser cutter. The machine is controlled by a set of laser pointers, about a dozen, each with a different function. One can draw straight lines, one rounded corners, one rectangles and so on."
"Taulman 3D recommends printing with the natural filament and then dyeing the parts afterwards for best results, but I wanted to see what happened when dyeing the filament first as that sounded a lot more fun."
"Joris Laarman uses the latest scientific insights in robotics, nano technology and digital techniques as well as traditional crafts to develop new products. For Laarman a good design starts with a good scientific experiment."
"At that point, metalformers and other manufacturers can perform return-on-investment and amortization calculations while taking additive manufacturing into account. When an order arrives for a diverse part family, concern with tooling up for multiple jobs won’t necessarily take a metalformer out of the bid process. Beyond that, as the accompanying sidebars illustrate, additive manufacturing can provide solutions for a host of shop-floor challenges."
"That’s why Joshua Harris’ clothes printer has gained so much traction recently. His idea centers around the concept of feeding your old clothes into his machine, you can then use that material to instantly print the next outfit you’ve had your eye on.
With 3D printing becoming so much more advanced, you may also be able to purchase cartridges of material from your favorite brand such as Nike, insert it into the machine and print out this season’s hottest item."
