3D Printing Optimized Shapes

3D Printing Optimized Shapes | Made Different | Scoop.it

In physics, the concept of “jamming” is defined as a process where granular materials, glasses, foams and other materials become stiff when their density is increased. Now that may sound complicated, but really all it is is the idea that the more stuff you put into a confined space the denser it will become.

This is a really cool application of 3D Printing in Research

Beth Robinson's curator insight, April 7, 2013 8:23 AM

Here 3-d printing is being used to dramatically speed up research that will for a foundation of knowledge for designing materials that will have exactly the properties an engineer wants.

3D Printing Robot Produces Chairs And Tables From Recycled Waste

3D Printing Robot Produces Chairs And Tables From Recycled Waste | Made Different | 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."

Gigabot 3D Printer Goes Large - 3D Printing Industry | Made Different | Scoop.it

re:3D — one of Austin’s newest start-ups: Gigabot with its USP is all about size: A considerable increase compared with other 3D printers at the same level.  “our project is aimed at designing the first large-format 3D printer… that you can take home with you. It’s not only about taking the amazing technology of 3D printing and amplifying it. If we’re successful, we can envision entire markets opening up to use this technology. Markets which have struggled to maintain the status quo, let alone use some of the cutting-edge technology that for the rest of the world is an overnight delivery away. We believe that by making a production-quality model of our 3D printer, and putting it in the hands of small businesses anywhere on the planet, will give them the flexibility to sustain their community, their business, and ultimately, the world we live in.”

This article discribes how the current attitude towards 3D printing is simular to the way people though about computers in the early 90's. Bulky and expensive. If 3D printing follows that trend then we could see the 3D printer as a home appliance in the near future.

Olaf Diegel is a professor of mechatronics at Massey Univ. in Auckland, NZ who has a strong academic and professional interest in 3D printing manufacturing technologies. He is also a guitarist. Combining these two interests, he has designed and made for sale a line of 3D printed guitars. I was skeptical at first of the tonal quality until I listened to him play one. Cool.
