URBEE2 3D-printed car aims to hit 290MPG on cross-country trip

High fuel efficiency is an important part of a vehicle for most people, especially as fuel prices rise and environmental concerns increase. Hyper-mile drivers go to great lengths to increase their car's gas mileage, but some cars bring it to the table as its default offering. Such is the case with the URBEE2, a 3D-printed car that is about to head out on a cross-country journey with only 10 gallons of fuel.

Motorola modular phone Project Ara teams with 3D Systems for manufacturing

If there was any doubt that Motorola would continue to push forward with their modular smartphone project through the future, it's been given another kick in the pants today. Motorola Mobility LLC, A Google Company, has today announced their new partnership with the 3D printing group 3D Systems for the modular smartphone system called Project Ara. This partnership will allow Motorola to get one step closer to what they describe as "production-level speeds and volumes."

German researchers 3D print replica fossil

German researchers 3D print replica fossil

3D printing is used by scientists in many fields of study for things such as rapid prototyping and more. A group of German researchers recently used a 3D printer along with CT scanning to print a version of a fossil without having to remove the delicate fossil from its protective plaster covering. The new technology can potentially be used to study fossils that are too fragile to be handed.

Microsoft 3D Builder app for Windows 8.1 bakes in native 3D printing

Microsoft 3D Builder app for Windows 8.1 bakes in native 3D printing

Microsoft has released a 3D printing app for Windows 8.1, bringing native support for producing physical objects from a variety of 3D printers to its OS. Building on the 3D printer driver MakerBot released earlier today, the Microsoft 3D Builder app comes with a wide range of preconfigured objects it can produce - including LEGO-style bricks, clips, and pendants, though also ranging to more complex designs like toy trains - but can also be used to create things from scratch.

MakerBot aims to put a 3D printer in every US K-12 school

The future of 3D printing has been the subject of much speculation, and to ensure that students have the opportunity to be on the forefront of whatever will arise from the industry, MakerBot has announced a new initiative to get a 3D printer into every public school in the United States. The mission is called MakerBot Academy, and it has been launched in conjunction with American Makes.

Cartesian The EX1 3D-prints circuit boards for wearables galore

Cartesian The EX1 3D-prints circuit boards for wearables galore

Supposing you were in the market for a prototype of a circuit board here in 2013 - what kind of process would you have to go through to get one? Certainly one that'd require one whole heck of a lot more work and waiting than is involved with the rather interesting creation revealed this week by Cartesian Co - a printer called "The EX1", one capable of printing circuit boards as easily as you'd be able to print a 3D object here on the tail end of 2013.
