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…

Professor wants NASA to 3D Print Houses on the Moon

It could be that soon humans will live in 3D printed houses on the moon – at least that’s one professor’s dream anyway. Behrokh Khoshnevis, a professor of engineering at the University of Southern California, has developed a method which would, in theory, allow humans to build houses or habitats on other planets. He calls…
