Yeehaw is a 3D printer ideal for kids (priced that way, too)

Yeehaw is a 3D printer made specifically with kids in mind - made to be safe, simple to use, and inexpensive. This printer was built to allow kids to print their own toys, and tools, and all manner of tiny oddities. It does so with an always-expanding library of 3D objects available for download as well as an app that allows kids to create 3D objects with big pixels in 3D space.

Ultimaker 3 printer lets you create more complex shapes

3D printing started out as a movement that democratized the production process away from big businesses and into small groups and even individuals. Naturally, over time, the benefits and savings of 3D printing found its way back to groups and businesses that can afford to throw more cash at a problem. Ultimaker is one of the biggest names in the 3D printing industry catering to professionals. And after more than three years, it is launching its next gen flagship box, the Ultimaker 3D.

M3D Pro 3D printer can print up to 7.5-inches tall

Typically, the less costly 3D printers aimed at consumers can only build smaller objects and they typically need to be tethered to a computer full time. A new 3D printer has landed on Kickstarter and has already blown its $100,000 goal out of the water by raising over $377,000 with 33 days to go on the project.

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.

3Doodler Create upgrade makes for easier doodling

3Doodler Create upgrade makes for easier doodling

The original 3Doodler pen was a cool device that was a bit of a cross between a hot glue gun and a 3D printer that allowed you to create 3D objects using plastic that came out molten and hardened once the plastic hit the air. That original version of the 3Doodler hit Kickstarter back in 2013 and was a rather fat device. 3Doodler 2.0 later hit the market making the pen even better and now a third version has been announced called the 3Doodler Create.

PolySmooth PVB and Polysher make shiny 3D printed objects

PolySmooth PVB and Polysher make shiny 3D printed objects

When you 3D print an item most folks expect something made in a plastic material to be shiny and perfect like something you would pick up at a store. The problem for most 3D printers is that when they are finished printing an object, the object has a rough surface with lines all over it from the layer printing process. The people behind the PolySmooth PVB filament say that the new filament to be used in the print process is the core of their technology.

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.

Designer (successfully) 3D prints his own invisible braces

While you're patting yourself on the back for 3D printing a replacement battery cover for your TV remote, one design has proudly shown off his new smile, one made straight via a series of teeth-straightening invisible braces he created himself using a 3D printer. The end result is as successful as anyone could hope for, which is to say he's now the proud owner of perfectly aligned teeth. The orthodontic world shudders.

3D bioprinter used to print a transplantable human ear

3D bioprinter used to print a transplantable human ear

Scientists have developed a new 3D bioprinter that has been successfully used to print a replacement human ear that could be transplanted to a patient in need. A human ear isn't all that the scientists have used the 3D printer to create, so far the team has created part of a jawbone, muscle, and cartilage structures in addition to the ear. The team is led by Anthony Atala from the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine and the printer is the result of almost a decade of work.

Mattel remakes ThingMaker into a toy-making 3D printer

Mattel remakes ThingMaker into a toy-making 3D printer

In 1964, Mattel introduced the first ever ThingMaker, which was more popularly known as "Creepy Crawlers". The ability to cook up, literally, toys of your own, albeit limited to said crawlers, might have been too far ahead of its time. Mattel was believed to have axed the product due to the fact that it required kids to work with miniature furnaces. Thanks to advancements in technology, particularly 3D printing, making toys no longer need be that dangerous. And so Mattel saw it fit to revive the ThingMaker, but now as a child-friendly 3D printer and app instead.
