Scan and Print in 3D with Zeus

Zeus

You can’t do much with just a 3D printer. The same can be said for a 3D scanner. But the possibilities are endless if you put both together, and that’s what AIO Robotics has done with Zeus. It’s a 3D scanner and 3D printer in one, so you can scan whatever it is you want to print and then print it in a jiffy.

It offers convenience that other gadgets already available in the 3D printing sphere don’t offer. Zeus has been in development for the last five years, so you can be sure that a lot of thought and work went into it.

Special 3D Printers Use Living Tissue to Print Human Ears

3D Printed Ears

No, those aren’t cooked pasta, although they definitely look like it. They’re actually human ears, albeit a whole lot smaller than the average. These ears were 3D printed with living tissue as the “ink” using a special printer developed by the Hangzhou Dianzi University in China.Continue Reading

This Guy is 3D-Printing His Dream Car…One Part at a Time!

3D Printed Car1

Everyone has a dream car. Be it the DeLorean from Back to the Future or the Aston Martin DB5 from James Bond, almost everyone’s got one. Unfortunately, these cars either don’t exist in real life or are just too expensive to even consider buying.

Those are problems that Ivan Sentch doesn’t even have to deal with, though, because even though he has his sights set on the Aston Martin DB4 (almost like Bond’s vehicle of choice, but not quite), he doesn’t have to pay close to the cost of its market value. That’s because he’s building the car himself–by 3D-printing it!Continue Reading

Mataerial 3D Printer Goes Against the Laws of Gravity

Mataerial

The Mataerial 3D printer is as unconventional as 3D printers can get. It deviates in design and functionality from most other 3D printers, which are usually box-like in shape and structure. The latter also requires a dedicated print surface in order to print things as you intended and designed them to be.

For this reason, the Mataerial has been dubbed as the ‘anti-gravity 3D printer’ since you can use it on virtually any surface–including those inclined at an angle–or no surface at all! Thanks to its innovative extrusion technology, users will be able to form curves and print hanging structures without the need for any support material.
