The new D5S Mini's arrived late today! Good thing I installed the shelving earlier. Plenty of work going into the new year: 1) Finish assembling, testing and delivery of the filament extruder. 2) Produce 1st iteration of the plastic shredder / recycler. 3) Install D5's and improve shelf system to include a HEPA filtration enclosure. 4) Begin testing PVA and Nylon prints for surgical training models 5) Prep final LightNoodle designs for Kickstarter video. 6) Submit paperwork f
First 3D LED printer could print heads-up-display contact lenses! Researchers at Princeton University have developed a 3D printer that can print LEDs in layers -- and it could one day print contact lenses that incorporate heads-up displays. READ MORE
It seems the Google Glass, Cardboard and Occulus Rift all have some interesting competition coming down the road. Any time DARPA get's involved with something, consumer applications eventually trickle out the pipeline. Wouldn't
Fantastic week! Delivered a light industrial 3D printer to a local company seeking to develop 3d printed products. Met with members of the healthcare and manufacturing industry to begin the process of developing medical educational products! And to top it all off, produced and delivered a set of prints for use in medical device manufacturing!!! Great way to start the Holidays!
One value of precise electroplate deposition of materials like platinum can create extremely efficient surface areas useful for catalyzing chemical reactions. 3D printed filters and fuel cells that operate orders of magnitude better than what's possible with lithographic etching, roll to roll printing, molding or subtraction milling techniques. http://www.3ders.org/articles/20141213-hyper-hydrogel-3d-printing-pen-creates-nanoscale-3d-structures-in-platinum.html
