Researchers 3D Print Microfluidic Blood Vessel Model to Study Disease-Causing Blood Clots

We’ve seen 3D printed blood vessels before – even an entire functioning network of them that was surviving in mice – but researchers in the Netherlands who are working with blood vessels and 3D printing technology are focused on something a little different. The team, consisting of scientists from the University of Twente and Utrecht […]

Print+ Releases New DIY Headphone Kits: 3D Print the Parts at Home or Order Through 3D Hubs

I hate earbuds, as I don’t relish the idea of having to jam a tiny piece of plastic into my ear in order to talk on the phone or listen to music…and, just like my distaste for chocolate chip cookies and cheeseburgers apparently makes me un-American, this fact probably makes me un-millennial. But luckily, 3D […]

3D Print with Stone: Formfutura Announces StoneFil Filament

Recently, we learned that 3D printer manufacturer CEL Robox and materials manufacturer Formfutura had formed a partnership, so Robox could sell FormFutura’s engineering-grade TitanX material. But while Formfutura, headquartered in the Netherlands, released several new materials in 2016, from three new thermoplastics to MetalFil PLA filament, the company hasn’t unveiled any new materials since its EasyCork filament […]

PhD Candidate Turns to 3D Hubs to Create Realistic, Functioning 3D Printed Neonatal Models for Medical Training

PhD Candidate Turns to 3D Hubs to Create Realistic, Functioning 3D Printed Neonatal Models for Medical Training

It’s hard when a loved one has to undergo surgery. Obviously, it’s difficult for the patient, but it’s also hard to sit in the waiting room, powerless, hoping the doctor comes in soon, but not too soon, and gives you good news. I don’t have personal experience with this, but I imagine it’s probably even […]

Filigreed Firewall is a Striking Example of What 3D Printers Can Create With Concrete

Concrete is always something I’ve thought of as functional, solid, and utilitarian, but never beautiful or artistic. You pour concrete, it hardens, and you have a good, sturdy wall or sidewalk that serves its purpose, but doesn’t possess any kind of character or uniqueness unless a few kids get there before it dries to leave […]
