Making, Learning, Collaborating, and 3D Printing in the Community: Dayton Mini Maker Faire

Making, Learning, Collaborating, and 3D Printing in the Community: Dayton Mini Maker Faire

Back in March, when I visited Dayton, Ohio’s resident 3D printing bar, Proto BuildBar, I was told that its employees would be exhibiting at a local school’s STEMfest later that month, and at another educational event this summer: the Dayton Mini Maker Faire. After thoroughly enjoying my visit to STEMfest, I definitely didn’t want to […]

Making a Difference: Mumbai Students Design, Develop, and 3D Print a Sanitary Pad Dispenser for School Project

We’re going to talk about something that makes lots of people pretty uncomfortable, even though in my opinion it really shouldn’t. Take a deep breath – are you ready? Menstrual cycles and sanitary pads (GASP). For whatever reason, those words can often strike fear into the hearts of men and women, though obviously for very […]

Teenage Fashion Designer Utilizes Laser Cutting and 3D Printing to Make Colorful Collections

If anyone thinks that a teenager can’t run their own business, they clearly haven’t met Florida fashion designer Ariel Swedroe. The 13-year-old from Miami has been sewing since she was 8 years old, and will soon be showing her bright and colorful resort-wear collection at next month’s Miami Swim Week. Swedroe makes made-to-order couture pieces as Swedroe Art […]

NYU Tandon Students Utilize Digital Fabrication and 3D Printing to Design Winning Concrete Canoe

NYU Tandon Students Utilize Digital Fabrication and 3D Printing to Design Winning Concrete Canoe

From simple PLA to glass and metal, there are all sorts of interesting 3D printing materials being used these days. I find concrete to be one of the more interesting materials, strictly because I know that there still are people who think 3D printing is only good for making little plastic characters, and not actual buildings. […]

Smart Gastronomy Lab Spinoff 3D Prints Chocolate Easter Shapes and Beer Bottles

Easter is in just a few days, and this particular holiday brings with it one of my favorite candies: Brach’s jelly beans. I’m not one for Cadbury cream eggs at Easter (editor’s note: I’ll take them!), and while those chocolate Easter bunnies are pretty adorable, they’re just too much for me to eat. I’ve never […]

Naval Research Shows 3D Printing Makes JPADS More Accurate and Cost-Effective

Naval Research Shows 3D Printing Makes JPADS More Accurate and Cost-Effective

The United States Army, Air Force, and Marines have been using aerial delivery systems (ADS) since WWII, so obviously 3D printed drones have major applications in the military – they’re not just for getting a pizza delivered. Another aerial tool that the military employs is a glider, which differs from a drone because it doesn’t […]

Sculpteo Was Everywhere I Wanted to Be at CES 2017

The guy I had a crush on my freshman year of college seemed to be everywhere I went on campus. I’d see him daily in the dining hall, at parties, on the way to classes in adjacent buildings, sitting outside on the steps of the dorm. This was not the worst situation to be in […]

My husband and I moved into our first house about eight years ago, on an abnormally rainy July weekend. Since everything got wet bringing it into the house, all of the furniture was placed on top of old sheets so it could dry without staining the floors. While we sat there, waiting for our tables […]

An Incredible Custom Mechanical Clock Made with a ZMorph Hybrid 3D Printer

An Incredible Custom Mechanical Clock Made with a ZMorph Hybrid 3D Printer

Matt Olczyk has designed, printed, milled and cut a pretty incredible looking Custom Mechanical Clock. But his trick was that he was able to use the same machine to do it, simply switching by switching out toolheads. Usually when a project uses different materials and is produced by different technologies it requires separate machines for the 3D printing, laser cutting, […]
