eora 3D scanner uses your smartphone and a green laser

People that are heavily into 3D printing can get new things to print into their computer for the printer to work on using a 3D scanner. A new 3D scanner has debuted called eora 3D and unlike some other scanners on the market the eora aims to be inexpensive. The way it cuts the price is by using something you already own to control the scanner- your smartphone.

Canon not only has a resin 3D printer but a VR headset too

Canon not only has a resin 3D printer but a VR headset too

If you think of Canon as simply a plain printer and camera company, then you might have been hiding under a rock for the past two years. That or you're not in Europe. The company has been into 3D printers around that time, but mostly as a distributor of 3D Systems' own printers. At the Canon EXPO in Paris, however, it might be trying to say it's ready to break out on its own, unveiling a 3D printer concept that could be the first piece of its "Imaging of Things" plans.

You can now 3D print custom gold jewelry

You can now 3D print custom gold jewelry

Sure, you can 3D print yourself a house, and in the future you may be able to 3D print yourself a replacement eyeball. Neither of those are likely to ever be something you need and/or want, but customized gold jewelry? It has existed for a large portion of human history, and it'll likely persist as a favorite many years into our future. The big difference, though, is that now you can 3D print it courtesy of Trove.

Form 2 brings pro 3D printing to your home

Form 2 brings pro 3D printing to your home

The folks at Formlabs have created a 3D printer they think can bust open the market for the everyday citizen. This is the Form 2, a 3D printer made for your desktop. Your actual desk's top, not just your desktop computer. This machine works with a new integrated resin system for top-notch cleanliness, a new peel mechanism and heated resin tank for super detailed printing and bits and pieces of large prints. While this printer may seem small, it's Formlabs' biggest.

MIT researchers convert MRI scans into 3D printed hearts

MIT researchers convert MRI scans into 3D printed hearts

Some of the challenge for surgeons in preparing for a surgery is getting a good idea of what the area they will be working with looks like. Surgeons use lots of tools to do this such as MRI, x-ray, and other methods to see inside the human body before they cut. Researchers at MIT and Boston Children's hospital have developed a new way to help surgeons see inside the body of children.

NASA 3D printed turbopump spins at 90k rpm in tests

NASA 3D printed turbopump spins at 90k rpm in tests

NASA is spending lots of time investigating 3D printed rocket engine parts. Back in April NASA announced that it had made a 3D printed copper engine part, which was a copper combustion chamber. NASA said at the time that 3D printing the part was faster and cheaper than making it via traditional means. NASA has now tested a more complicated 3D printed part, this time a turbopump.

MIT’s MultiFab 3D printer can handle 10 materials at once

MIT’s MultiFab 3D printer can handle 10 materials at once

3D printers are great, useful, and fun, but the typical hobbyist printer that you can buy for yourself or for your home business has a problem with single-mindedness. For one, it can only really produce one part at a time, leaving the task of assembling parts together into a functional whole to humans. For another, it can only work with one material at a time, though more professional, and more expensive, 3D printers can work with up to three. MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory or CSAIL, however, has a solution that solves both of those at a fraction of the cost of a professional 3D printer.

3D printed bionic arm plans announced by Youbionic

3D printed bionic arm plans announced by Youbionic

An Italian company called Youbionic is working on the development of a 3D printed bionic hand. It started as a CAD model and eventually became a real working prototype that is able to flex and move using the electrical impulses triggered by muscle movements. The bionic hand uses an Arduino board as the brain behind the system.
