Canon imagePROGRAF Pro-1000 Printer Review

Canon imagePROGRAF Pro-1000 Printer Review

Initial setup for the Canon imagePROGRAF Pro-1000 printer is exceedingly user-friendly and simple. The entire process is laid out for the user piece-by-piece, cartridge-by-cartridge. There's a connectivity element as well, one in which you can connect to your PC or smartphone (if you happen to be in need of massive smartphone prints). We were provided several sets of Canon paper with which to test, while this device also works with 3rd-party papers from brands like Canson and Inkpress (with Canon-defined software profiles, that is to say).

Pollen Pam 3D printer can use four materials in a single print

A relatively unknown 3D printer firm out of France called Pollen has unveiled a new 3D printer that has some very interesting features. The printer is called Pam, which naturally makes me think of Archer. Rather than being a tattooed drifter, this Pam is a large 3D printer that is aimed at businesses that need to be able to print with multiple materials. In fact, Pam can print with four different materials during a single process.

HP Deskjet 3755 is “world’s smallest all-in-one” and super cute

It's not often that we describe a printer as "super cute," but the printer HP is announcing today is just that. The DeskJet 3720 is white and aqua - also known as cyan, also known as HP's own "Electric Blue." This device is aiming to be compact as possible while remaining capable of printing full-sized (letter) size paper. It also works with HP Instant Ink, an ink replacement subscription plan that'll cost users £1.99 per month - or $3 a month once the printer arrives in the USA. UPDATE: Here with a different name.

These HP Jet Fusion printers could revolutionize 3D printing

HP is ready to supercharge 3D printing, revealing its much-anticipated printers capable of up to ten times the speed at half the cost of existing technology. Dubbed the HP Jet Fusion 3D Printing Solution, the system is able to produce not just the oft-lumpy clumps of melted plastic we're familiar with from existing 3D printers, but functional, prototype-ready parts or, alternatively, market-ready customized components or tchotchkes.

Canon SELPHY CP1200 Printer Review

Canon SELPHY CP1200 Printer Review

Canon's Selphy Printer is a strange proposition, to be sure. Bringing relatively decent-quality printing on a small scale to a printer that's semi-mobile. Printing tiny images on pocketable photo-paper sheets, making the entire process as simple as tapping the print button on your smartphone. But is it worth the hassle? Does having a printer this size allow you to become a mobile printing hero for your family and friends, or does it amount to a bit of unnecessary bulk (assuming you've already got a bigger printer at home)?

Trinus 3D printer is a robust all-metal design

Trinus 3D printer is a robust all-metal design

It's not uncommon for a cheap 3D printer to be made with cheap parts. Lots of plastic and assembly required are good ways to keep costs down for the manufacturer, but cheap parts mean a printer that it won't last as long for the end user. A 3D printer called the Trinus has turned up on Kickstarter and this 3D printer is affordable, but made using all-metal parts and higher quality constructing than you might expect. The Trinus 3D printer sells for well under $500.

Slash 3D LCD-SLA 3D printer uses resin to make stuff

If you need or want a high-resolution 3D printer that can sit on your desktop, you better have some deep pockets because those printers often go for thousands of dollars. The cheapest of the sort is the MakerBot Replicator2 and it sells for $1,999. A new high-resolution 3D printer has turned up on Kickstarter called the Uniz Slash and it has better resolution at half the cost of that MakerBot and as much as a fifth of the cost of some others on the market.

AxiDraw personal writing and drawing machine writes for you

AxiDraw personal writing and drawing machine writes for you

I can remember back when graduating high school my mom insisted that I handwrite and sign thank you notes to everyone who sent gifts. I can understand now why she did that, but at the time I thought it was some sort of punishment. I'm not a big fan of writing out anything and most folks likely use digital means to type out all their notes and messages these days.
