  • Are you ready for your child, the 3D printing genius?

    Very good Miss, but how do I print a gun? In his new National Curriculum for schools in England, announced this week, Education Secretary Michael Gove pledged to modernise design and technology education. This is thought to include introducing 3D printers into schools to help the next generation of children become creators rather than users. Gove’s plan, together with the news yesterday that high-street retailer Maplin will be the first to sell 3D printers to the public for just under £700, reaffirms once again that this technology is on its way to being embraced by the general public.

  • Mataerial 3D printer builds gravity-defying structures directly onto walls

    Earlier this year, we covered the 3Doodler, a pen that lets users sketch 3D objects with plastic filament, almost like a 3D printer. It's a fun little gadget, but what if someone made a device that offers similar freedom, except it built objects over 10 times larger? It might look something like the Mataerial 3D printer, which uses a robotic arm and quick-solidifying material to form rigid, free-flowing structures on almost any surface, even vertical ones. The Mataerial printer uses a robotic arm and quick-solidifying material to form rigid, free-flowing structures on almost any surface Unlike most 3D printers that...

  • My Kindergarten Can 3D Print. So Can Yours.

    Last Saturday afternoon while other neighborhood kids were enjoying the early spring sunshine in the park, my Kindergarten Benny was indoors staring intently at an Ipad.  Two hours of screen time straight.  And me, I couldn’t have been more pleased. He was using his finger to draw a doodle of a car.  And five minutes later, in a feat of Willy Wonka-like magic, he was holding that doodle in his hand.  It was a 3D printed object.  And it wasn’t his first.  Benny and his sister now know more about 3D printing than most grown-ups.  And to my mind, that’s...

  • 3D Printing in the Mall: A Sign of Things to Come

    Here is an interesting early arrival in the coming boom of 3D printing. The Dubai-based company Precise Concepts is offering a service called This Is Me, which sells 3D scanned and 3D printed copies of yourself. A 6-inch, full color statue costs about $300 – $400 USD, which they scan and print off-site. The statues are made of a plastic resin with full-color print, relatively realistic phototexturing. What is interesting about this is that they offer the service from a kiosk in the mall.  I found this one at the Mall of the Emirates, in Dubai, which sells the typical...
