Software-Born Kikai Labs Launches New M11 3D Printer with Filament Detection

By Davide Sher

Unlike other companies that entered the desktop 3D printer arena from some areas of the manufacturing business, Buenos Aires-based Kikai Labs began as a software company. Marcelo Ruiz Camauer, the company’s founder, ran a successful software company with his brother when he set out to apply this knowledge base to the manufacturing revolution. Now that revolution is culminating with the release of the new M11 “full metal jacket” 3D printer.

Kikai Labs was not initially on my list of companies to visit, but when Marcelo contacted me ,I looked it up and found out that it was located about 300 meters from my apartment in Palermo, in the stylish and fun “SOHO” area which – incidentally – is very similar to the SOHOs in London and New York.…

3D Insumos Takes Buenos Aires Makerspaces Online with Nube3D

The fourth appointment on my Argentinian visit was with David Cimino, founder and CEO at 3D Insumos. I had learned just the day before that “Insumos” in Spanish means “supplies”, so I figured out that David’s company, founded in 2012, mostly manufactures and sells filaments and parts for 3D printers. That is true, but it is only the tip of the iceberg.

The company also manufacturers Chimak brand 3D printers (which come in many sizes), distributes M3D 3D printers, and it recently launched Nube3D.com, a cloud platform for distributed manufacturing.…

Injured Costa Rican Toucan Saved with 3D Printed Prothetic Beak

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.…
