Gigabot 3D Printer Goes Large - 3D Printing Industry

Gigabot 3D Printer Goes Large - 3D Printing Industry | Social Mercor | 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.”

Sworoba OyetKep's curator insight, March 11, 2013 3:55 AM

The people at Organovo Holdings have teamed up with autodesk to design bioprinting machine. This machines main idea and fuction is to have the capability to print living tissues and hopefully move on to a more complex task such as organs. Although presentlyhe people at Orgnovo are able to create a slice of tissue, they require alot more hard work to reach their goal of being able to create a whole liver.Being able to recreate human body parts with the aid of 3d printing may not be so far off into the future. This would be music to the ears of people who have lost limbs or have been critically damaged in someway. This could also mean that we are able to sustain a elderly persons vital organs for longer period of time.

3D Printing Robot Produces Chairs And Tables From Recycled Waste

3D Printing Robot Produces Chairs And Tables From Recycled Waste | Social Mercor | 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."

Daniel Booth's curator insight, March 17, 2013 3:07 AM

This is the future, not only 3D printing but being able to use recyclable materials to produce furniture and not only in 1 design, variety and uniqueness are the key element here, and to be able to do it in 3 hours.

Why stop at chairs? What’s stopping any other product being designed this very way? 

Jake Sieben's curator insight, March 22, 2013 9:00 AM

This article shows how 3D printing can be used to make practical things, such as chairs, out of recycled materials.

Wounded Eagle Gets New 3D Printed Beak

Wounded Eagle Gets New 3D Printed Beak | Social Mercor | Scoop.it

After being shot in the face by a poacher seven years ago, Beauty the bald eagle lost most of her beak. Without it, the eagle couldn’t feed herself, and likely would have died in the wild. But now, Beauty’s getting a second chance at survival in the form of a 3D printed beak. A team of researchers, engineers and dentists created the world’s first prosthetic beak, which was modeled with CAD software and 3D-printed from nylon polymers. After a two-hour-long procedure, Beauty can now eat and drink by herself, though she’s not ready to be released back into the wild. The eagle remains at Birds of Prey Northwest, the conservation facility that spearheaded the recovery project.
