Rapid-Fire, 3D Printing Process Builds 10 Homes In 24 Hours

Winsun Decoration Design Engineering Co., a construction materials firm based in Suzhou, China, has built ten homes in a day using a giant 3D printer.

This isn’t the first time that a firm has used 3D-printing technology to build a house, but it seems to be the first time that a firm has done so in rapid fire time.

3D Printed Cast With Ultrasonic Vibrations Helps Speed Up Recovery

3D Printed Cast With Ultrasonic Vibrations Helps Speed Up Recovery
So we’ve seen how 3D printers can be used to print medical-related gadgets, such as a portion of a skull, and while those are great and serve as viable alternatives compared to current implants and whatnot, wouldn’t it be better if those 3D printed medical gadgets/accessories could actively help your healing process as well?Well perhaps now it can, thanks to a prototype cast which not only acts as a regular cast, but at the same time uses ultrasonic vibrations that will help speed up the bone healing time. This design was put together by Turkish student, Denis Karasahin, who managed to win the 2014 Golden A’Design Award for his idea.

Koenigsegg actually saves money 3D-printing parts of its new hypercar, the One:1

Posted by in category: 3D printing

Koenigsegg One:1
Koenigsegg has gone from sketches on napkins to making some of the fastest most desirable cars money can buy.

Just how has it accomplished this in the face of established marquees like Ferrari, Porsche, and Lamborghini? Secret Swedish government backing? The favor of the mighty gods of Valhalla? It is possible – especially that second one.

What we can say for sure is that it has been willing – from the start – to take risks on new technology. And on the revolutionary One:1 that new technology is 3D printing.

Check Out This Futuristic 3D Printed Car Body

Posted by in category: 3D printing

— Singularity Hub
EDAG-Genesis-3D-Printed-Car-Top-View
German auto firm, EDAG, made a stir at this year’s Geneva Motor Show with a fully 3D printed auto body called Genesis. And why not? Its smooth grey curves and futuristic honeycomb ooze sex appeal. And did we mention 3D printed cars?

EDAG aids major carmakers in design and production, and they’re no stranger to the 11-day Geneva Motor Show, a mecca where over 600,000 car enthusiasts come to ogle the best cars of today and glimpse a few visions of tomorrow.

3D printing, of course, falls squarely into the second category. EDAG thinks additive manufacturing has the power to improve the entire carmaking process from design to production—and Genesis is meant to embody that potential.

Local Motors will 3D print an EV live in Chicago in September

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, disruptive technology

By Sebastian Blanco - AutoBlogGreen

Local Motors Rally Fighter

We’ve heard of EV kit cars that can take a week (or an hour) to build, but how long do you think it would take to build an EV from scratch, using this new-fangled 3D-printing technology? If the technology from Local Motors works as advertised, it should take no more than the five days. The public will get to see for ourselves during this year’s International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago, IL in September. Two years ago, at the 2012 International Manufacturing Technology Show, Local Motors built its Rally Fighter (pictured) on the grounds during the six-day event.

Stephen Power from Cardiff in Wales is thought to be one of the first trauma patients in the world to have a procedure in which 3D printing was used at every stage (AFP)
A man who suffered horrific facial injuries in a motorbike accident has had pioneering surgery to rebuild his face using 3D printed parts.

Stephen Power from Cardiff in Wales is thought to be one of the first trauma patients in the world to have a procedure in which 3D printing was used at every stage.

The 29-year-old suffered multiple trauma injuries in an accident in 2012. Despite wearing a crash helmet, his top jaw, nose and both cheek bones were broken and he fractured his skull.

New partnership could produce a 3D printer that prints objects 500 times faster and 10 times larger

Posted by in category: 3D printing

By - Gigaom

George Miller's Stratasys Dimension 3D printer prints pieces for a cube puzzle. Photo by Signe Brewster3D printing is slow; so slow that printing an object several feet long is an arduous task that can take days. As a result, most 3D printers are tailored to printing small objects that take a few hours at most.

That could change for industrial-sized printers after the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory and machine tool manufacturer Cincinnati Incorporated signed an agreement this month, 3Dprint.com reported today. The partnership will focus on creating a 3D printer capable of printing objects at 200–500 times the speed and 10 times the size of most current printers.
