As someone who's taller than average and picky about clothes, I'd love to be able to 3D print my own. But that won't happen unless the materials emulate the look and feel of wool, cotton, rayon and silk, so I'm not holding my breath.
What a great slideshow roundup of all of the sometimes wacky and wonderful things being 3D printed these days. Personally, I really like the idea of 3D printed clothes...and that dress Dita is wearing is quite stunning, actually. I love clothes but shopping can be a chore. Imagine just downloading files and printing your clothes at home someday. (At least, this is how I would like this technology to evolve!) Brilliant.
That's an impressive slideshow, Lauren. A jet engine, a hybrid car, dresses. Wow. My favorites were the speaker with lights and the hybrid car. Of course, the printed chocolate seemed like a great idea, too.
Nowadays 3D Printers are getting very common everyone knows them and those who dont know are trying to get informations about it .Starting with the technology of this printer a material printer can easily be converted into 3D Printer with digital technology.To make a print out what we have to do is just create a design on your computer by CAD software and then connect the computer with th printer it will produce the output by continous submitting a particular material layer by layer and then heating it .No matter these printers are becomming popular but then also they are of commercial usage other than consumer .Because first of all they are expenive secondly there are certain drawbacks as well out of which noise is the most harmfull one it is soo noisy that it wont be reasonable to place it in the residential area .They have certain limitations as well the most important one is this that it works on a single material that is the output product is made of single material unlike our consumer products that are the combinations of several products .But because this is a new technology there is a space of improving it as well. Below mentioned are certaine 3D printed material that i have come across however there are many other as well.
1.Janjapp Ruijssenaars has announced his plan for a 3D House
2.3D Technology was used in the movie SKYFALL for creating the replica of Aston Martin
5.Lightening and their creating the interiors of many luxury hotels
Altair has released an update of its HyperWorks computer-aided engineering simulation suite that includes new features focusing on four key areas of product design: performance optimization, lightweight design, lead-time reduction, and new technologies.
At IMTS last week, Stratasys introduced two new multi-materials PolyJet 3D printers, plus a new UV-resistant material for its FDM production 3D printers. They can be used in making jigs and fixtures, as well as prototypes and small runs of production parts.
In a line of ultra-futuristic projects, DARPA is developing a brain microchip that will help heal the bodies and minds of soldiers. A final product is far off, but preliminary chips are already being tested.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
