This Might Be the Strongest AND Lightest Material Ever Seen in 3D Printing

By Tyler Koslow

One of the most scientifically mind-blowing materials ever discovered, graphene (an allotrope of carbon) has been praised for having an unbelievable combination of material characteristics, including low density, top-notch mechanical properties, thermal stability, and even electrical conductivity. In fact, graphene aerogel is one of the lightest materials ever discovered, reportedly weighing seven times less than air…But these great qualities only really hold true in graphene’s original 2D material composition, which are greatly diminished when graphene is made three-dimensional. That is until now.…

3D Print Conference Returns to Baku for 3D Printing in CIS Countries

By Davide Sher

The 3D printing market belongs to the second movers. Apparently, the 3D printing events market also does.  So, after two great years of 3D Printshow and Inside3DPrinting, now it is time for new localized shows to take over the global scene. Here in Italy, 3D Print Hub is going great; there are yearly shows in Israel, Turkey, and Argentina. In the post-Soviet CIS Countries, it is the 3D Print Conferences that are helping industry operators to meet and do business.
The new season of the series of shows, organized by Smile Expo, is taking off next May 20th from Baku, the up and coming capital of Azerbaijan.…

New Global Filament Directory Helps You Navigate the 3D Printing Jungle

By Davide Sher

Even though we know full well – thanks to one of the most stable charts in 3D Hubs’ monthly trend updates – that at least 50% of all desktop FFF 3D printing is done either in black ABS (for technical parts, where color does not matter) or white (if you are going to apply a finish to a decorative piece), leaving a large percentage of very fragmented user preferences. As the awareness of the potential for new materials becomes clearer, those other users are seeking different materials to test out and work with.…
