Talk about going green! This ‪#‎3dprinted‬ bike frame is made from plant-based plastics, and can be melted down and reused or ground up and composted. Oh, and the production facility is solar powered.
When it was invented nearly two hundred years ago, the bicycle quickly became one of the most important inventions that the quickly modernizing world had ev

Today the 3D files for the awesome PLEN2 desktop robot were finally released!
A huge thank you to the PLEN Project Committee for creating such an awesome project! 
In case you didn't know, the PLEN2 is an open source 3D printable robot that can carry small items, dance around, play soccer on your desktop and even skateboard. These can be controlled with your smartphone, PC or other inputs like motion control, facial expressions and your brain waves! 

The project is files for the project are now available for download on Wevolver!

I am now proud to say that things evolve in the right directions, the interest is growing for my products and this have lead me to increase the production batches and this makes it possible to reduce the cost of my products. I would like to thank all you fantastic customers that have made this  possible. 

Prices are reduced with up to 30% and I hope that this will make it possible for more people to start to use the best and most reliable extruder on the market.  Also there is a growing number of custom mounts in order to get an easy installation.

+Eric Lien I never doubted the design of this extruder, but I do think that for most printers out there, this thing is overkill. Certainly at that price. In my view the only real downside to a Wades is the gearing, which is noisy and not so wear-resistant. Slap a belt drive on it, and most problems are over. But YMMV.

Michal Zalewski wrote a great guide on beta resin casting.
.. he's more of a CNC guy than reprap (he seems to disdain it) but it's impressive.  Your guide would be a great sister article since it shows how to accomplish mold casting using a FFF model source.

3D printed jet engine for RC model
Given the challenges with precision, building functional machines with a household 3D printer isn’t easy. And that’s why it’s all the more impressive that someone on the RC Groups forum has used a 3D printer to make a fully-functional scale model of a Boeing 787’s GE-built turbofan jet engine.

Hi peeps!

As the biggest network for 3D printing we're most likely also the biggest producer of failed prints, while I hope you all agree that 3D printing holds great promise for a more sustainable way of manufacturing

So, we thought it was about time to give those fails a second chance. Today, we're opening up the first three recycling Hubs in London, Breda, and Boston as a test.

The Recycling Hubs, equipped with both a shredder (Filamaker) and an extruder (Filabot), will collect failed prints from the community (through events) and turn the waste into brand new filament, which will be fed back into the community. 

To raise awareness, we're kicking off a REMAKE campaign and this is where you all (hopefully) come in. This is the idea:

- Post a picture of a failed print as a comment on this post (https://www.3dhubs.com/talk/thread/time-recycling-now-what%E2%80%99s-your-biggest-printing-fail) or share your pic on social (#REMAKE3D) 
- The 3 Hubs with the most popular pics will receive a fully recycled spool of filament produced by Refil. 
- Campaign will run until Sep 9th.

Just to be clear, 3D Hubs will not make any money with this. It is purely an awareness campaign for local recycling where we hopefully get to see some awesome and funny 3D print fails from the community. 

Looking forward and please let me know what you think!

This guy Javier Ramos sums up 3D printing so well, and he's also doing something about it! "We" are thinking about 3D printing with the wrong head on, we are thinking of how can we do what we already do with 3D printing, where as the real potential is in the combination of materials and the way they are put together. Researchers at MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) are using machine vision to enhance the printing process. Javier Ramos says the whole design paradigm will have to change. This new design paradigm will require new hardware, new software, new platforms and Engineers to think in new ways.

I remember the hype around the native support of 3D printing on the new Windows platform. But what exactly does it mean? Well, I've tried it and here's what I've found :)

Hi guys, this is kind of a plug so sorry for that. But as many of you here nudged me for this, I do feel it's worth sharing that YouMagine joined the 3D Hubs Teleport network last week! That's it! </plug> ;)
Some exciting news this week! We're extremely happy to see this huge and active community of makers join forces with us to shorten the road from design to an actual object by integrating our API to their website.

+Stephen Kongsle totally true points. As a designer myself I feel what you mean. We've actually built in functionality that "tips" the designer during checkout of a 3D print ("tip" in this case can be both voluntary or obligatory). We're still testing to see what works best but technically everything is in place to give a designer his/her fair share. Hope that helps! Cheers

#MIT  coming up big on this one. Very cool to see this tech in action too! #3DPrinting   #Multifab   #CSAIL  
There's no doubt that 3D printing is one of the coolest technologies released over the past decade, and given all we've seen from it up to this point, there's also no doubt that it's going to be a big part of our future. While today's 3D printers are still limited in what they can do, they've already been capable of creating usable exoskeletons

Fascinating LumiPocket LT, a resin 3D printer, engraver & etcher combo launches on Kickstarter!
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1508643250/lumipocket-lt-a-revolutionary-personal-fabricator

LumiPocket LT 3D Printer is also very interesting because it is the first SLA 3d printer based on a custom version of a SCARA robotic arm that provides speed and accuracy.
