Ice cream could be the next 3D-printed food on the menu

Three MIT students have been showing off a modified 3D printer that can produce customized ice cream shapes, and if the process is refined successfully you could be having your desserts to order in the near future. Using a Solidoodle printer and a Cuisinart soft-serve ice cream machine the team was able to produce designs within a self-imposed 15-minute window.

3D-Printing Materials that Resist Flaws, Fractures

MIT graduate student Leon Dimas is no stranger to resilience: At 18, as a rising soccer star, the long-armed goalkeeper was a promising prospect who played for the youth academy of Rosenborg BK, a top-ranked Norwegian soccer club. He was set, it seemed, on a path that would allow him to pursue a professional career playing the game that was his first love. Continue reading “3D-Printing Materials that Resist Flaws, Fractures”

ColorFabb Releases BronzeFill – Metal Filament, Along with GlowFill – Glow-in-the-dark Filament

Many experts believe that the next frontier in 3D printing doesn’t lie in the actual hardware itself, but rather in the materials that can be used to print with. After all, what good is a 3D printer, if you are limited to only printing in a handful of materials, all with similar physical properties?
