"In fact, the team and the hospital were so impressed with how the procedure went, they've commissioned 3D-printed models for two other patients."

Scientists have 3D printed a physical model of the 'Homunculus Nebula, a giant cloud ejected by the massive binary system Eta Carinae during its 19th century outburst. An international team of astronomers have mapped the nebula using the European Southern Observatory's Very Large Telescope and its X-Shooter spectrograph, the team imaged near-infrared, visible and ultraviolet wavelengths along 92 separate swaths across the nebula, making the most ...

Don't you think the NASA could have 3D printed it with a bit more quality?

YouMagine progress.  They need whatever feedback we can give them.  :)
 
Last week we did a big upgrade to YouMagine, many more improvements are still to come:

- Much faster page loads
- Major framework upgrade (lots of little improvements)
- Should be more stable
- We will get better info when you get a page: "Oops, something went wrong" so we'll be hunting bugs more quickly
- A privacy fix (no longer can a web-crawler find your e-mail address)
- Some changes to the 3D viewer (needs more work)
- Fixed the "Mark as primary" for images you've added to a design.
- The report/complaint functionality now also tells us who files the complaint so we can get in touch or ask for more information.
- Blender icon added for .blend files.
- Many smaller improvements...

After this release we'll be improving more frequently...

I hope you like it!!!!

found great that when you click on the 3D object it displays the max dimensions of it: a feature I never saw before, but very logical to have everywhere (the bounding box dimensions)...

We developed a 3D printer using  all open source components. Just launched it on Kickstarter. Check it out and give us some feedback.

This SLA Printer is like no other.  The Resin moves instead of the print bed.  Pretty neat. 
Throughout the first half of this year and the last half of 2013 we saw all kinds of innovation within the fused deposition modeling (FDM) based 3D printer mark

Beat me to it +Karlis Stigis ! Only the Peachy doesn't use patent pending tech, it uses a drip feed controlled by gravity... which might be a bit simpler :)

Yes, this will really work.  it's not the first instance of using 3D printing for bodyparts.  There are quite a few experiments going on at hospitals and universities across the globe.  One of the most popular uses right now is incubated skin cells of varying types used in processes for such things as burn victims.  Printing directly 'onto' the person.  It's great stuff.
Metal sintering with specially formulated metals (Alloys, I assume) allows for the printing of replacement bodyparts with immense accuracy and smoothness.  
All kinds of materials are being 3D printed these days.  Not all materials are even artificial.

Hi Tom, the startup reports that "Heliolithography, in contrast to SLA, is a continuous printing process, which means we do not have to stop between layers and we can be printing 100% of the time". They will probably reveil more details next year as they'll launch their 3d printers

Adam Lowe's Replica of King Tut's Tomb

British artist Adam Lowe spent five years making a perfect replica of the tomb of King Tut. And guess how he did that? Three-dimensional printing. “Every bit of micro bacteria is in its place, every crack, every flake of paint. It’s effectively like a portrait, or a performance, of the tomb from when we recorded it in 2009," he explained to National Geographic. (You can see an actual image of the 3D-printing feat at http://goo.gl/swUa9z)

+Thomas Sanladerer I am with you - thats silly - I will give them the cracks and the paint flakes as being at least possible, but how are they printing the bacteria?

The 3D Weaver was designed by Nigerian American designer Oluwaseyi Sosanya for his The Structure of Protection graduate project. 
The machine weaves interconnected layers of straight warp threads and intertwining weft patterns at different heights, providing the third dimension.
The 3d Weaver is a loom designed specifically to weave three dimensional structures using the x y and z coordinates.

Wish it was open source, unfortunately it's Patent Pending.

RS Components shows off new 3D printers

RS Components last week showed off a number of the 3D printers in its line-up, including newly available models from #3D Systems that enable users to print objects comprised of more than one colour. At the same event, Dr Adrian Bowyer, inventor of the RepRap, the first low-cost 3D printer, gave a talk about the implications that 3D printing may hold for manufacturing and society in general.

On show at the event in London was the RepRapPro Ormerod, the most up-to-date version of the RepRap device, along with newly available models from 3D Systems, including the third-generation Cube, and the CubePro Duo and CubeX Trio.

From the National Weather Service:

...PLA advisory remains in effect from 1 PM this afternoon to 9 PM EDT this evening...

* Hazards...heat index values of 97 to 102 degrees...resulting from temperatures reaching the lower 90s...combined with high humidity. The heat index will be highest in urban areas.

* Timing...this afternoon through early evening.

* Impacts...heat and humidity will make for dangerous conditions if proper precautions are not taken.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Exercise caution if using, storing or transporting any items printed with PLA (polylactic acid) during the afternoon today. Remember that PLA begins to soften at temperatures as low as 55 C (130 F) and can easily be damaged if left in a hot car even for a few minutes. Avoid direct sun for prints made with dark-colored filament.

High humidity is also an issue for PLA filament before it is printed; be sure to enclose your unused filament in a tightly sealed container and remove it only while printing. Use of a humidity absorbing material such as silica gel will help prevent damage from water absorption.
