Get Behind the Wheel of Pinshape’s 3D Printed Open R/C Design Contest

By Michael Molitch-Hou

After witnessing the popularity of Daniel Noree’s 3D printed Open R/C F1 car, 3D model marketplace Pinshape has launched a complete design contest surrounding 3D printable remote control cars.  Teaming up with MagicFirm Europe, who just released their upgraded ZYYX+ 3D printer last week, Pinshape is hosting the Open R/C Accessory Design Contest.

Right now, on Pinshape, designers can start creating accessories for Open R/C’s F1 car for a chance to win the ZYYX+, as well as a 3D printed Open RC F1 car with an electronics kit from Hobby King.…

Circuits from Space! ESA to Develop 3D Printing Breadboard Machine for the ISS

Circuits from Space! ESA to Develop 3D Printing Breadboard Machine for the ISS

By Tyler Koslow

3D printing has certainly impacted a lot of industries down here on Earth, but numerous projects show that the true potential of this maturing tech may be best suited for outer space. As of late, the European Space Agency has certainly recognized 3D printing as an important tool in the space race, having just awarded €500k to a team that developed a new cold spraying technology that enables metal to be 3D printed at room temperatures (helping to eliminate possible heat-based distortion and damage to metal components).…

Injured Costa Rican Toucan Saved with 3D Printed Prothetic Beak

By Tyler Koslow

For those following the rising use of 3D printing for prosthetic replacements, you may have noticed that humans aren’t the only ones benefiting from these constant breakthroughs in 3D printed assistive devices. There is a vast variety of both domesticated and wild animals who have overcome their injuries and deformities thanks to 3D printed prosthetics. Last year, two Brazilian toucans had their broken beaks replaced with a 3D printed replica within the same week as one another, allowing the colorful birds to eat, sing, and live a normal life once more.…

The Lunar Quattro Rover: One Small Step for Audi, One Giant Leap for 3D Printing

By Tyler Koslow

When it comes to implementing 3D printing in the manufacturing of automotive vehicles, German automobile company Audi has demonstrating their own use of the technology on a regular basis. Late last year, Audi had announced that their future use of metal-based 3D printing is imminent, and had even produced a fully 3D printed functional replica of the 1936 Auto Union Type C Grand Prix racer. Now, Audi is taking these efforts from planet Earth into outer space, collaborating with and sponsoring the Berlin-based team from Part Time Scientist to create the 3D printed Audi Lunar Quattro moon rover.…
