3D printed Saxophone – Music to my ears

3d printing, wyly

A professor at Sweden’s Lund University has used the revolutionary tech to create a visually distinct line of custom-built guitars, keyboards, and drums. Now, Olaf Diegel is giving the alto saxophone a try, and so far he’s had more success than even he expected. Diegel revealed the initial prototype when he demonstrated the nylon-based alto sax last week in…

The Mech is Born

Ekso and 3D Systems has created the first 3D printed robotic exoskeleton suit. Exoskeleton suites are not exactly new but the convenience and exact manufacturing of a 3D printed suit would dramatically improve the usefulness. Other working prototypes of powered exoskeletons, including XOS by Sarcos, and HULC by Lockheed Martin (both meant for military use), have been constructed but have not yet…

3D printed duck foot lends hope to hobbled fowl | Wyly Wade

3d printing, wyly

Buttercup was born with a backward foot, and physical therapy only got the wayward webbing to turn back around half way. Plucky as can be, Buttercup soldiered on, hobbling along as best as could be expected. Then came along 3D printed medicine, something which sparked a bit of inspiration in the mind of Buttercup’s “dad,” Mike…

3D printing copy/paste=yes now undo

Something it took the iPhone and Android years to figure out is the importance to copy and paste along with the ability to undo a change. NSTRMNT team led by Brian Harms, a Masters student at the Southern California Institute of Architecture, has created a 3D printing process called suspended disposition that gets around gravity by printing…

RFID be gone: Why you might soon be 3D printing the Internet of Things

Fundamental to the Internet of Things is the idea that objects must be uniquely identifiable. RFID chips are perfect for assigning objects a digital fingerprint, at least so far as traditional manufacturing goes. But with the rise of 3D printing, incorporating an RFID chip into your object means interrupting the printing process. Now, scientists have come up with a way to…
