We just came across a Kickstarter Campaign that has already raised well past $1 million - as of writing the campaign has raised a total of $1,208,011. Above is the The Micro, "The First Truly Consumer 3D Printer."
If I'm correct, 3D printing shops are going to be as common place as your neighborhood Kinko's before too long. There are companies already paving the way like Jacksonville's Forge and Swarupa Studios. Swarupa Studios is hoping to gain attention for their bricks and mortar 3D Printing business at OneSpark next week. The idea behind [...]
You got a license for that thing? That phrase could soon take on a new meaning. Instead of referring to certain types of things, it may apply to nearly every…thing. The state of licensing in 3D printing today is in equal parts wild west and gold rush. But, managed correctly, 3D print licensing could create [...]

It seems that many of the grand promises of 3D printing were just proved. According to a recent Extreme Tech report: "Surgeons in Louisville, Kentucky have successfully used a 3D-printed model of a heart to study the heart defect of a 14 month-old boy and save his life."
3D Printing has really taken off. It was one of the biggest parts of the 2014 International CES back in January. But just a few years ago, before the Makerbot, 3D printing was saved for companies with million dollar factories. Now, companies are trying to get the cost of 3D Printers down to a level [...]
The CPALMS 3D Initiative focuses on producing STEM curriculum resources related to 3D modeling and 3D printing. These resources will fall under four distinct model categories: demonstration, archive, problem-solving, and open-ended design.
One of the hottest things we saw at CES, (aside from the INMOTION SCV) was the 3 Doodler. It's the world's first 3D pen. It looks like a soldering iron of sorts. 10" plastic strips go into the back of the pen and you can make 3 dimensional creations and works of art. Some of [...]
Last week the Consumer Electronics Association held its International CES event in Las Vegas. It was the largest show in the history of the event, featuring over 2 million square feet of exhibit space, 3,200 exhibitors and 150,000 attendees, including 35,000 international visitors. I was lucky to attend and my mind was blown. First, a [...]
My next stop was the Formlabs booth. I’ve been following them closely since the initial crowdfunding of the Form 1 printer back in September of 2012. The project was launched on Kickstarter with a goal of raising $100,000 and in 30 days raised nearly $3 million, making it one of the most successful projects ever. [...]
