Bringing Industrial Manufacturing to the Desktop with New MoldLay 3D Printing Filament (VIDEO)

One of the main limitations to desktop FFF 3D printing’s use is often a filament’s material properties. Kai Parthy has been a powerhouse when it comes to inventing new fused-filament deposition materials, inventing LayWoo-d3, BendLay, and more. Now, Parthy has come up with a revolutionary new material called: MoldLay. Continue reading “Bringing Industrial Manufacturing to the Desktop with New MoldLay 3D Printing Filament (VIDEO)”

Pop-Up Printing Technique Creates Complex 3D Nano and Microstructures

Researchers from Northwestern University and the University of Illinois have developed a new fabrication technique which generates complex and attractive 3D nano and microstructures. The technique imitates the way a children’s pop-up book works and provides a number of benefits when compared to traditional 3D printing technology.

The 3D Printing Filament Spool Standard: Light-weight, stackable, standard spool design could take hold soon

3D printer filament is to FFF/FDM 3D printing, as blood is to every living human being. Without it, you simply just have a dead, useless machine that can’t do anything. Equally important, however, yet not always looked at as so, is the spool (or lack thereof) that the filament is wound around.
