Researchers create 3D printed objects that connect to WiFi with no electronics

The internet of things just got a big boost from researchers from the University of Washington. Researchers from that university have announced the creation of the first 3D printed plastic objects and sensors able to collect useful data and communicate with other WiFi devices on their own. The team behind the project is offering the CAD models to the public so people with access to 3D printers can create their own devices.

Casio Mofrel 2.5D printer makes realistic fabric and leather samples

Casio is the latest company to showcase a cool new technology at Japan's CEATEC event. The company recently demonstrated Mofrel 2.5D printing, an almost-3D printer that can produce materials with a texture like that of leather or fabrics. With this technology, sheets of textured 'leather' and 'fabrics' can be printed on-demand with various designs, then colored through a separate printing process.

This Galaxy Note 8 3D print video raises release questions

This week a video has appeared with a 3D print of a Samsung Galaxy Note 8 3D print. It is believed that this print was made using plans for a real-deal Galaxy Note 8 which would normally be seen by the eyes of a 3rd-party accessory manufacturer. With these plans, a user such as "Concept Creator" is able to get a handle on what the Galaxy Note 8 will feel like and generally look like, too.

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.
