Archives For 3D Printing

So far I’ve tried multiple 3D printers.

Makerbot Replicator 2

Formlabs Form 1 (Upgraded to Form 1+)

Idea Maker F100L

To print large images can take these printers up to a day. FINALLY someone is doing it quickly and they demonstrate with a quick model print during this TED talk.

This device is designed for Enterprise work (should cost in the $100K range), so now we just need to wait for the home version.

What we think of as 3D printing, says Joseph DeSimone, is really just 2D printing over and over … slowly. Onstage at TED2015, he unveils a bold new technique — inspired, yes, by Terminator 2 — that’s 25 to 100 times faster, and creates smooth, strong parts. Could it finally help to fulfill the tremendous promise of 3D printing?
