CMU Team Creates 3D Printed Prosthetic Arm for Cello Student

Researchers at the Human-Computer Interaction Institute at Carnegie Mellon University have created a 3D printed prosthetic arm for an 11-year-old cello player. Led by professor Jennifer Mankoff, the group is comprised of students from the School of Computer Science and volunteers from the e-NABLE group. With his new arm, Kharan Wilbur was able to perform…



Students Create Eco-Friendly 3D Printed Shoes

With the help of the ZMorph  2.0 SX Multitool 3D printer, students at a design school in Poland have created the prototype for comfortable, recyclable, and fully functional 3D printed shoes. The shoes are constructed of cotton and wool which have then been 3D printed onto with various flexible filaments. This has resulted in a…



Scientists Create 3D Printed High Resolution Glass

As technologies keep evolving, 3D printing is no longer confined to traditional materials. One example of this is 3d printed high resolution glass that was created by a German research team at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. They were able to do this through a combination of microstereolithography, stereolithography, and microlithography. Among the objects printed were…



French University Looks to Create 3D Printed House

The University of Nantes is taking 3D printed house construction to the next level. While houses have been constructed using 3D printing before, they are attempting a new method of construction known as Batiprint3D. Instead of printing directly with concrete, the project will using polyurethane to create molds to pour the concrete into. Eventually, this…
