In many ways, the holy grail of additive manufacturing (AM) is the ability to produce completely fullyfunctional components and assemblies in a single fabrication operation—say, smartphones 3D printed with just one machine. Key to such a capability would be the ability to 3D print complete batteries, a project that a variety of researchers have been working on around the globe. Though there are a number of research endeavors to develop battery 3D printing technology, KeraCel may be the ... 08/22/2019 05:44
It was around 2014 that the consumer 3D printing bubble burst, causing the stocks of stalwarts like Stratasys and 3D Systems to plummet. The firms quickly began shedding consumer-focused products in favor of devoting their resources to industrial projects. 3D-printed lamps from Gantri. (Image courtesy of Gantri.). Five years have since passed. Is the world ready for consumer 3D-printed goods this time around? One San Francisco-based startup, Gantri, is betting on it with th... 08/02/2019 05:51
Last year, MakerBot seemed to have scrapped its historical desktop 3D-printing technology and started from scratch to create something more powerful and reliable with the Method 3D printer. Now, the Stratasys subsidiary is taking the expected approach and adding an upgraded system to the Method line with the Method X. The MakerBot Method X 3D printer can print with ABS and soluble supports. (Image courtesy of MakerBot.). spoke to Dave Veisz, vice president of Engineering, an... 08/01/2019 09:00
In some ways, true multi-material 3D printing has been the dream of the additive manufacturing (AM) industry for some time. While there exists Stratasys’s impressive PolyJet process, which is capable of delivering a wide variety of textures and colors of uv-curable plastics, the ability to introduce metals and electronic components into 3D-printed parts is just over the horizon. The Inkbit 3D printer combines machine vision and machine learning to perform closed-loop quality contr... 06/14/2019 12:54

In the desktop 3D printing community, polylactic acid (PLA) is easily one of the most popular plastics. This is due in large part to the fact that it’s easy to print with, does not emit nearly as many particles as other materials, and is biodegradable. Usually made from sugar in corn starch, PLA doesn’t carry with it the negative connotations of petro-based plastics, like ABS, but that doesn’t mean that it has no environmental impact. For instance, it may be compostab... 04/12/2019 08:12
The upcoming Prusa SL1 resin 3D printer. (Image courtesy of Fabbaloo.). We’re nearing the release of Prusa’s first resin-based 3D printer, and it’s time to think about what this might mean.
