This 3D printing pen allows you to draw in thin air - 2 views

  •  
    "Maxwell Bogue, Daniel Cowen and Peter Dilworth began a Kickstarter campaign in February of 2013 for the 3Doodler - the only 3D printing pen in existence. After the success of the campaign, 3Doodler went on to build their company and improve their product. And now, the 3Doodler 2.0 is available on the recently launched Mashable Shop. The shop, powered by Visa Checkout, includes a multitude of products for tech-lovers everywhere, along with some exclusive Mashable gear."

4 Reasons Your School Should Invest In A 3D Printer - 3 views

  •  
    "The use of 3D printers is becoming increasingly prevalent across the workforce, from medicine to confectionary, aerospace to sportswear.

    The mere concept of them can seem daunting, and it is therefore easy for school leaders to overlook the benefits a 3D printer can have for their pupils. We've put together a list of strong arguments in favor of this fantastic investment in a bid to help you put forward a winning pitch to your school decision makers."

    "LDraw™ is an open standard for LEGO CAD programs that allow the user to create virtual LEGO models and scenes. You can use it to document models you have physically built, create building instructions just like LEGO, render 3D photo realistic images of your virtual models and even make animations. The possibilities are endless. Unlike real LEGO bricks where you are limited by the number of parts and colors, in LDraw nothing is impossible."

Disney Research: 3D printing robots from scratch (Wired UK) - 1 views

  •  
    "A new tool developed by Disney Research and Carnegie Mellon University could let you 3D print your very own walking robot.

    "Progress in rapid manufacturing technology is making it easier and easier to build customised robots, but designing a functioning robot remains a difficult challenge that requires an experienced engineer," said Markus Gross, vice president at Disney Research. "Our new design system can bridge this gap and should be of great interest to technology enthusiasts and the maker community at large.""

Maker Club: How to Make 3D Printed Building Sticks - 2 views

  •  
    "Early on in my 3D Printing experience, I immediately became interested in designing connecting parts. After some fails, some lessons and minor success, I took a break. I came back to this project and now created some simple connecting parts I call "Building Sticks".

    The goal for the Building Sticks was two-fold. First, I wanted something that would be fun for kids (and me) to build stuff - like a construction toy. Second, I wanted something I could use to build or prototype simple functional things - like phone stands or business card holders or even just ideas for larger custom objects.

3D Printing Entry Point | Maker with Mayo - 0 views

  •  
    "A 3D printer is an amazing tool.  It offers rapid prototyping, textiles for creation, and my favorite understanding of 3D objects in a virtual environment.  Using x, y and z axis to design gives learners a chance to consider multiple measurements. It's all fascinating stuff, but it can be intimidating.  So here are some quick tips to make starting it easy:"

Understanding The 3D Printing Ecosystem | TechCrunch - 2 views

  •  
    "Excitement about 3D printing has steadily accelerated over the past decade - but this excitement has largely outpaced innovation and development in the field. As a researcher in 3D printing technologies, I've built 3D printers using all of the major technologies, as well as more experimental ones.

    What I've learned is that many of these technologies are composed of very well-understood materials, software problems and mechanical systems - things that engineers have been doing for decades. This, then, begs the question: Why isn't 3D printing better? Why are failure rates so high and why is reproducibility so difficult? It's clear that it's not due to working with exotic materials or advanced motion control. What's actually holding back innovation is how we think about those technologies: as separate pieces, rather than as elements of a system.

Thingiverse Helps Make 3D Printing Easy for Student Beginners | EdTech Magazine - 2 views

  •  
    "3D printing is becoming more common at schools across the world, but there's still a skills gap in using this new technology.

    To help overcome that gap, Thingiverse, an online repository of 3D printing designs hosted by the 3D printer manufacturer MakerBot, recently launched JumpStart - an online resource for newcomers to the 3D design discipline. JumpStart is geared specifically with early learners in mind, says Laura Taalman, MakerBot's senior product manager for education."

A Beautiful Visual Explaining 3D Printing for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mob... - 4 views

  •  
    "3D printing is a very cool technology that has garnered a lot of attention lately. The additive manufacturing process 3D printers use and the software to create 3D models can be extremely confusing. In an attempt to share some information about the 3D printing process Shapeways created a 2D explainer of 3D printing. Introducing students to the world of 3D printing is a great way to get them excited about manufacturing and design. Students are able to see their ideas and creations come to life before their eyes in a very short period of time.

    One of the main benefits of 3D printing is the ability to rapidly prototype ideas and designs for anything from fashion accessories to the rocket engines produced by industrial printers at NASA. The Shapeways marketplace gives students and teachers the ability to quickly upload designs and have them printed and shipped within weeks. For classrooms without access to expensive 3D printers, this allows students to get in on the exciting action of 3D printing and modeling."
