3Doodler Releases 3D Printing Pen Just For Kids

By Tyler Koslow

Since successfully funding the first model of their 3D printing pen on Kickstarter back in 2013, 3Doodler has been trying to put the power of 3D printing technology directly into our hands. 3Doodler has been aiming at artists and Makers alike with their unique, handheld plastic extruding devices, encouraging those who may not have the means for a 3D printer to use their mind as CAD software and their hand as the printer. Now, 3Doodler has announced a 3D printing pen for a younger audience, the 3Doodler Start, a more affordable and colorful version of their original 3D printing pen.…

Made In Space to Send 3D Printed Laughter into Space

Made In Space to Send 3D Printed Laughter into Space

By Michael Molitch-Hou

While Made In Space is hard at work accomplishing a number of herculean tasks, like 3D printing satellites in space and building a 3D printed spacecraft with Enterprise In Space, the company does have the opportunity to laugh a little.  Or, more accurately, work with laughter, as long as it has something to with 3D printing and space.  For instance, they will play a vital role in sending the first sculpture into space, a 3D printed work of art titled “#Laugh”, by artist Eyal Gever.…

3D Printing Ceramics with the Sound of Some Solid Vibes

3D Printing Ceramics with the Sound of Some Solid Vibes

By Tyler Koslow

We’ve seen how 3D printing technology has been used to artistically represent the physical world, but only few, like Reify and artist Gilles Azzaro, have explored the ways that sound can also be manifested by 3D printing, too. But what if you were able to own your favorite song or album in the form of ceramic pottery? Well, two artists based in the Netherlands, spatial sound designer Ricky van Broekhoven and designer Olivier van Herpt, have teamed up to make this intriguing idea of evoking sound in 3D a reality.…

Artist Recovers Chelsea Manning’s Identity from Prison with 3D Printing

Artist Recovers Chelsea Manning’s Identity from Prison with 3D Printing

By Michael Molitch-Hou

US military whistleblower Chelsea Manning may be holed up in a military prison, but Chicago artist Heather Dewey-Hagborg was able to smuggle a piece of the WikiLeaks informant out of Fort Leavenworth. A FedEx package carrying cheek swabs and hair trimmings from the prisoner, currently serving a 35-year sentence for providing the news organization with evidence of potential military abuses, gave Dewey-Hagborg the evidence she needed to reconstruct Manning’s likeness as a 3D printed portrait.

3DPI has covered Dewey-Hagborg’s work in the past, when she used DNA samples from cigarette butts and gum found on the street to create a series of portraits.…

A 3D Printed Pigeonstein to Haunt Your Beautiful Dreams

A 3D Printed Pigeonstein to Haunt Your Beautiful Dreams

By Michael Molitch-Hou

While UK architect William Stanley has recently launched a 3D printed jewelry shop, with which to execute his 3D printable creativity, it may be his 3D printed Skele-structure sculpture that stands heads above some of the other 3D printed work in the industry.

The Skele-structure is a design that artfully combines 3D printed replicas of pigeon bones with structural elements to create a modern take on prehistoric history. Stanley describes the design by saying, “Skele-structure is a merging of the natural and the artificial.…

Printabowl Brings High-End Pipe Design to a Whole New Level with 3D Printing

Printabowl Brings High-End Pipe Design to a Whole New Level with 3D Printing

By Tyler Koslow

While we’re all busy scrambling to find out what 3D printing will be applied to next, two brothers in the state of Washington are taking the technology along for a ride upon the high road, so to speak. After the state legalized the recreational use of cannabis back in November 2012, University of Washington art students Al and Saul Jacobs decided to create Printabowl. Their goal was to redesign the traditional water pipe to represent a ‘functional sculpture’, and they decided to use ceramic-based 3D printing in order to accomplish it.…

New Ceramic 3D Printing Method Able to Withstand over 2,500°F

New Ceramic 3D Printing Method Able to Withstand over 2,500°F

By Tyler Koslow

Throughout the brief and ever-shifting history of ceramic-based 3D printing, many of the field’s innovators have found success with printing in ceramic material by using a FDM-like process, which works by building up the design layer by layer. When it comes to high-performance ceramics, however, companies like Lithoz and Prodways use photopolymerization processes. Malibu, California-based HRL Laboratories has taken this to a whole new level, using their stereolithography-like approach to 3D print ceramic materials with amazing industrial properties. The development and benefits behind this newly derived ceramic 3D printing method were first detailed in the academic journal Science, and is being touted as a new process that can definitely withstand the heat.…

Porcelain, 3D Printing, & Why You Might Move to Taiwan (Part 4)

Porcelain, 3D Printing, & Why You Might Move to Taiwan (Part 4)

By Michael Molitch-Hou

This is part four in a multi-part series covering 3D printing developments in Taiwan. To learn more, read parts one, two and three. 
Have you seen those little Precious Memories figurines? Maybe sitting beside a tea set at an elderly neighbor’s house? Those porcelain statues are manufactured by a company called Franz Collection Inc., with its design and research center located in Taipei. Actually, they were made by Franz, before the Precious Memories brand went elsewhere, but the Taiwanese company remains one of the largest sources for porcelain manufacturing for a number of OEM companies.…

Massivit 3D Prints 2 Meter Shark Replica for Campaign Against Hunting

Massivit 3D Prints 2 Meter Shark Replica for Campaign Against Hunting

By Davide Sher

Through its ability to 3D print large size objects at low cost and high speeds, Massivit is enabling a new type of visual communication, which opens up new possibilities in terms of reaching out to large audiences with powerful messages. One of the first applications of this approach is for the recent Silence of the Sharks campaign against indiscriminate hunting of these mighty fish.
A total of 87 dedicated divers, holding protest posters and escorted by a 2-meter long, 3D printed, shark statue, carried out the opening dive of the campaign at the Satil wreck in Eilat, Israel.…
