Dubai will be home to first 3D printed office building

We’ve seen 3D printed home concepts and low-cost housing printed using giant 3D printers. Functional 3D printed buildings and homes are still a thing of the future, though, a future that is now upon us: Dubai has announced a project that will result in the first ever 3D printed office building — a building that will be functional and will include printed furniture. It will be a 2,000 square foot building, and will be made from a 20ft-tall printer.

Brick-laying robot can ‘3D print’ a home in two days

Brick-laying robot can ‘3D print’ a home in two days

Robots can do a lot of things, from smart pills to 3D printing an entire steel bridge. This robot-powered invention from Perth, Australia's Fastbrick Robotics can lay bricks more efficiently than a team of humans, building a brick exterior of a home in just two days. It's really a giant 3D printer for homes. The creators dubbed the robot Hadrian, named after the Roman emperor who built the vast, eponymous Hadrian's Wall.

This 700hp 3D printed supercar wants to reinvent manufacturing

This 700hp 3D printed supercar wants to reinvent manufacturing

Supercars may be outlandish by default, but Divergent Microfactories' Blade goes one step further, blending 3D printing with a 700 HP bi-fuel engine. While it's not the first use of 3D printing in automotive we've seen - Local Motors revealed its fully-printed Strati last year, for instance - Blade distinguishes itself with its combination of 3D printing and carbon fiber assembly that, its inventors argue, deliver the best of flexibility and speed of construction.

L’Oreal partners with bioprinting firm to 3D print human skin

L’Oreal partners with bioprinting firm to 3D print human skin

L'Oreal is partnering with 3D bioprinting company, Organovo to take their current skin farming to the next level. L'Oreal currently grows its own skin for testing beauty products and formulations. It is a necessary step before releasing products to market, so L'Oreal can see just how safe and effective its formulas are. Organovo is an industrial bioprinting company that 3D-printed artificial veins from living tissue in 2010.

Lowe’s adds in-store and online 3D printing service

Lowe’s adds in-store and online 3D printing service

Lowes is a hardware store known for being relatively welcoming to new technology, something it recently showcased with the addition of a robot worker. Now the company is again expanding its customers' access to new technology by adding in-store and online 3D printing and scanning for 3D printing, making it a whole lot easier to get a replacement part of a hard to find bolt or curtain end piece, for example. Unfortunately, though not coming as much of a surprise, the in-store 3D printing options are limited right now.

Palette 3D printer accessory fuses filaments for multicolor printing

Palette 3D printer accessory fuses filaments for multicolor printing

The latest 3D-printing innovation, Palette, can fuse various filaments end-over-end to create multicolored objects and embedded circuitry by using electrical filaments. 3D-printing has come a long way, and as the technology becomes more popular, we're seeing cheaper models hit the shelves and 3D-printers capable of using bio-materials to make medical-grade implants. Previously, single-nozzle 3D-printers have only been able to print monochrome creations. Palette wants to give the ability to print multiple filaments to any single-nozzle 3D-printer, creating smooth, multicolored creations.

Disney’s prototype 3D printer makes things from soft fabric

Disney’s prototype 3D printer makes things from soft fabric

As the 3D printing boom continues, there's one thing that is almost always the same: objects are printed from rigid plastic. How are we supposed to print soft, plushy things like stuffed animals from that kind of material? Well, the folks at Disney Research are way ahead of you, as their new prototype 3D printer is able to produce flexible things made from fabric. Instead of normal 3D printers that use plastic, adding portions of the material in specific spots, Disney's machine cuts shapes in sheets of fabric, which are then layered on top each other.
