Interview: Paulo Blank – Minibot Project – Brazil Projects

Hi guys! =D Most you may know that I’m from Brazil. And we do have a great market of national products for 3DPrinting, but like others, the Chinese market obfuscates the small ones like ours. And I started a campaign that I want to show to the world, all the good stuff that we produce […]

3DPrinting for your Kitchen – What’s up there?

Based on my previous lists, you can assume that all top 10 models of Thingiverse, Pinshape and MyMiniFactory aren’t useful stuff, mostly they are models to make your geeky life a bit happier. However, 3DPrinting could also make your life easier. To print models that you can use daily and maybe fix something that was […]

Low Poly Models: The Art of Vectors

I’m not good at math, consequently not good in geometry either. But in 3DPrinting math is used all the time, and Low Poly models are no different. Low Poly models mean that the model has fewer triangles in its geometry. Making it simple and easy to generate G-Codes and print. Today I will dig the […]

10 most popular models on Pinshape

A while ago, Pinshape announced that they were about to close the website, but the 3D-Printing community didn’t let that happen. So Pinshape lives until today with a good database of free and non-free models. Today I will list to you the Top 10 Free Popular Models on Pinshape =D 1: The 30$ Scanner V5 […]

3DPrinted Musical Instruments – Let’s start a band?

3DPrinting is a revolutionary technology where in my opinion your imagination is the limit. In this world, one of the things that you can print is musical instruments. So I searched around on my favorites repositories of models and made this list for you. A flute   Well, of course, it would have a flute […]

Orrery – A 3DPrinted Solar System

I was scrolling down my Instagram feed this morning when this Orrery image appeared: That triggered me to search more about this project since the description of the image didn’t say much. This kind of model, called Orrery, is used since way back to show how our solar system works, however, all the craftsman that […]

10 Most Viewed Models on MyMiniFactory

The 3DPrinting world is full of models to discover. And then I started a series about Top 10 something on the main websites that host models. Now I’m going to share with you the 10 Most Viewed Models on MyMiniFactory. Since I wrote this article: 10 places to get 3D Printing Models I’ve fallen in […]

So for my return, I choose to List the 10 most popular models on […]

Printrbot and Polar3D introduce Printrbelt; a new conveyor belt 3D printer

Printrbot and Polar3D develop a new conveyor belt 3D printer While it isn’t a new concept, the conveyor belt 3D printer idea is gaining more and more popularity this year. Prove of this ‘trend’ popping up is the recent launching of the Printrbelt 3D printer, which just debuted last week after its successful development by […]

New Liquid 3D Printing Method by MIT and Steelcase

Scientists at the MIT Self-assembly Lab and Global Furniture Manufacturer Steelcase teamed up to develop a new and faster method of liquid 3D printing Let’s face it once again. In a consumer goods industry, where quality of finish and time are  key factors, conventional 3D printing is still fairly a slow process. Among other reasons, this […]

The innovative method, called ‘Rapid Liquid Printing’, has been successfully tested for customizing office furniture.

University of Sheffield researchers trial efficient diode lasers for high speed 3D printing

The way many sectors are 3D printing can be better thanks to a new additive manufacturing process that uses energy-efficient diode lasers. University of Sheffield researchers in the UK are working on a new 3D printing technique. Known as Diode Area Melting (DAM), this process is described as a “faster and more energy-efficient alternative to […]
