If you have money, you can start producing what you want. Skrivarjätten HP gives to last in the 3D printer market with the series Jet Fusion 3D. It prints in voxels that are 50 micrometers large, and can with the help of 30,000 tiny nozzles to print up to 340 million microscopic gizmos second. - The parts are joined, ie at a very small level - virtually at the molecular level, and it helps to give them a special strength, says Alex Monino, marketing manager for HP's 3D printer, to Computerworld. HP Jet Fusion 3D left and right finishing system that can be purchased for 15 thousand dollars. It is sold separately and cost about 15 thousand dollars.
Printer Ink Refill KitsIt s crazy to think how reliant we still are on printed documents in the digital age.We recently told readers how to save 90% or even more when buying replacement ink cartridges for your printer, and we received a tremendous amount of positive feedback after running that article.DON T MISS: This hidden iPhone trick just became my new favorite featureAimed at consumers and people with home offices, Brother s new MFC-J985DW and MFC-J985DW XL bring the price of entry to its INKvestment line down under $300 for the first time ever.The former costs just $199 and prints black pages for less than a penny per page, while the latter runs $299 and can print for up to two years before you have to purchase additional ink cartridges.Here are some key details about these two new models: Regardless of brand of ownership, SoHo customers haven t been shy with expressing their feelings about the price of ink and cartridge yields Brother marketing boss Phil Lubell said.The MFC-J985DW and MFC-J985DW XL are both available for purchase beginning immediately from leading retailers including Amazon, and we all know what to do with our old printers…Thanks to the sharing economy, living in five different cities in five years has never been more doable.
The company claims that its Jet Fusion 3D Printing Solution revolutionises prototyping and printing by delivering "superior quality" end products at half the cost, and up to 10 times faster, than current rivals FDM and SLS printer solutions in the same price bracket .It offers printing at the individual voxel level the 3D printing equivalent of a single pixel in 2D printing, as it were so boasts high levels of accuracy, and also speed with the ability to print over 340 million voxels per second.And while this is aimed at commercial usage and the hardware is very expensive, it's exciting to see what sort of technology is in the wings and could potentially trickle down in some form to desktop 3D printing.Businesses and manufacturers can completely rethink how they design and deliver solutions to their customers."Pricing for the 3200 starts at $130,000 around £90,000, AU$180,000 , with the full solution comprising the 3D printer and Processing Station which you can see on the right in the above image - this provides faster cooling and a cleaner finish, among other benefits starting at $155,000 around £108,000, AU$213,000 .The Jet Fusion 4200 will ship late this year, and the Jet Fusion 3200 will follow in 2017.
It takes about four minutes for a Fujifilm Instax Mini shot to develop.I tested a mix of analog cameras, and even some digital printers that work with your smartphone, to find the best options for BBQ and bridal shower alike.Fujifilm s Instax Mini film is about the size of a credit card and costs around a dollar a shot, sold in 20-packs.I haven t felt so cool walking around with a gadget since I had the original iPhone.Even better, share the pairing code at your party, and anyone with the app can connect and print.The printer uses Zink—as in zero ink —paper.
Most 3D printers print layers over and over again until a full object takes shape.The machine uses a high-intensity laser that heats tiny silver nanoparticles to form metallic shapes.The 3D-printing technique was developed by a team of Harvard researchers at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering and the Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.The key to unlocking this new approach to printing metal was balancing the intensity of the laser and its proximity to the nozzle.This kind of delicate metal printing is particularly useful because of its freeform capabilities.The filament can be shaped into virtually any type of metal structure, which researchers expect will be useful in developing wearables, sensors, and even circuitry parts.
Gusten Danielsson, Head of Finance Cellink receives the winner's diploma. The company sells both 3D printer biological material but also a product that they call biobläck, therefore, the material used to print human tissue. Business Angel Lena Apler, which we also wrote about earlier this week, chose to cast their votes elsewhere, namely the company My Services. It is extremely exciting medtech but I'm a bit crass, and more short-term in my thinking. My services have a model that I understand better and there is less risk, she said. Moreover, we have a product that we know works, says Gusten Danielsson, Head of Finance Cellink when Breakit talk to him afterwards.
Decentralised ride-sharing startup Arcade City has scooped the winning prize of €20,000 £15,300 at Europe's biggest open-industry blockchain competition, run by the German Tech Entrepreneurship Center.They presented a diverse range of blockchain applications, including decentralised ride-sharing, event ticketing, P2P donations, a decentralised architecture office, international shipping, and land registry in the developing world.The award ceremony was held in Berlin on 17th May, supported by founding partners RWE and GlobumbusDr Carsten Stöcker, innovation programme manager, Blockchain Competence Team, RWE Innovation Hub, said: "The fourth industrial revolution will be built upon a Machine-to-Machine economy with autonomous vehicles, 3D printer, robots, drones and IoT.Globumbus founder and competition sponsor, Jens Hewald added, "I see a recognisable shift towards non-fintech solutions."At the ceremony, attended by over 200 people from Berlin's startup ecosystem, keynote speaker, Trent McConaghy founder of ascribe / BigchainDB described Berlin as one of four blockchain capitals in the world, alongside San Francisco, New York, and London - citing the GTEC Award as evidence of the ever-strengthening interest in the technology.German Tech Entrepreneurship Center GTEC is the first private-sector, open campus for entrepreneurship in Europe, founded at ESMT in Berlin in 2015 by RWE, Henkel, ESMT, Globumbus
If you want to send out wedding invitations, but don t want break the bank, you should skip these fancy linings, lettering, and other embellishments.It s shocking how expensive weddings can be even before you ve started paying for the actual ceremony and reception.If you re going for a budget wedding, Chelsea Shukov, the owner of Los Angeles based letterpress company Sugar Paper, recommends you watch out for these simple details that can rapidly drive up the cost:Lined envelopesThick cardstockLots of colorsBorderingHand-letteringExtra cards with directions or informationSomeone adheres envelope liners by hand, and duplexing, the process of making thick cardstock, is done by hand as well.The same goes for bordering, or having the cards edges painted.In fact, if you want lots of color in your invites, you re better off going to a digital or offset printer instead.And calligraphers can charge as much as $24 per envelope if you want hand-lettering.
An undergraduate at New Jersey Institute of Technology made his own plastic braces using a 3D printer, $60 of materials, and a healthy dose of ingenuity — and they actually worked.Amos Dudley had braces in middle school, but he didn't wear a retainer like he was supposed to, so his teeth slowly shifted back.He didn't want to shell out thousands of dollars for a whole new round of braces, so the digital-design major decided to make his own.On his blog, Dudley writes that he was an unlikely combination of two things: He was broke, but had access to a high-quality 3D printer through his university.He took full advantage of this.The process wasn't exactly easy.He had to research orthodontic procedures and plot the route of his successive braces, so his teeth would move in the right way.But once that was done, all it took was fabricating a series of models out of relatively inexpensive plastic, and then following through on wearing them.And it was worth it for Dudley, whose smile turned out looking remarkable.Here is the process he went through: View As: One PageSlides
Traditional 3D printers work by extruding filament – typically either PLA or ABS – layer by layer, building the print from the ground up.In contrast, this new method, dubbed laser-assisted direct ink writing, prints microscopic, free-standing silver nanoparticle structures.The heated silver is extruded and immediately hit with a programmed laser that anneals the metal using just the right amount of energy.The printing nozzle can move on X, Y and Z axes which, when combined with the rotating print stage, enables freeform curvature.Wyss Institute Postdoctoral Fellow Mark Skylar-Scott, who is the first author of the study, said the most challenging aspect during development was dialing in the exact nozzle-to-laser separation distance.This allowed them to modulate the printing speed and distance between the nozzle and laser to control the annealing process on the fly.
The GO wheelchair not to be confused with the HU-GO, another 3D-printed wheelchair project is the brainchild of Benjamin Hubert, director of London design agency Layer.For instance, someone with a spinal injury midway up the back might require more support and a taller seat-back, while someone who has lost a leg might want things to be adjusted to take her off-center balance into account.Only the seat printed on a large-format device — it won t come out of a desktop printer and footrest sintered aluminum for durability are custom-designed; the rest is constructed of off-the-shelf parts, to keep the costs down and repairs simple.The company has been in dialogue with wheelchair users and designed things with their feedback; the GO isn t quite ready for wheelchair basketball those chairs are tanks in their own right, said Hubert , but players were consulted anyway.Right now the GO is still in prototype form, and will be on display at Clerkenwell s Design Week later this month.Hubert said that the design is mostly finalized, but now faces scrutiny from the National Health Services and the European counterparts to the FDA.
We don t know what Canon s move will be, but Brother has announced its solution to the challenge of buying ink: just put more of it in the box.The MFC-J985DW and MFC-J985DW XL color inkjet printers are based on existing Brother printers, which we ve found to be some of the best available.According to Eric Dahl, Brother s director of marketing for Inkjet and SOHO Laser Products division, the company is attacking the cost-per-page story by charging less per cartridge.The new printers target those who print a lot of documents, namely small business or home office users Brother s main demographic , but we can also see large households with lots of school kids benefiting.There is a 2.7-inch touchscreen to handle functions, and a paper tray to fit 100 sheets a bit limited if you re a super-heavy-duty user .Both printers are available online now, but will go on sale in stores, in July.
The sub-$500 3D Printer category is booming right now, and one of the latest additions to this burgeoning subcategory is the Mod-T from NewMatter.NewMatter has clearly gone the extra mile to make setup a painless process.Instead of bets and gears, the printer uses a toothed build plate placed atop two perpendicular pinion rods.This configuration does come with a couple drawbacks more on that in a moment , but the overall idea is very thoughtful and user-friendly.Bill Roberson/Digital TrendsTo find out, we loaded up the lovable little tugboat known as 3DBenchy.The same thing happened on our third try too — but on the fourth attempt we managed to pinpoint the source of the problem.

Take for example, Impossible Project s new I–1 camera, a sleek instant camera controlled by an accompanying smartphone app.What if you want something a little less expensive and a little more DIY though?The answer might be this clever instant camera made from a Raspberry Pi computer and a thermal printer, stuffed inside a cardboard box.Reminiscent in quality of the iconic Game Boy Camera which once held a record for being the smallest digital camera and its accompanying printer, this little contraption is made up of a Raspberry Pi Model A , a Pi Camera Board, a thermal receipt printer, a few buttons, and a cardboard box.The guide is far from beginner material, but if you have experience with Raspberry Pi computers or Arduino builds, it should be a fairly straightforward creation, especially considering the code needed to get the build up and running is provided.Burgess chose to recycle the box the thermal printer cam in, but for more adventurous builders, there are plenty of other options, including 3D printing.
Shenzen, China-based 101Hero says it can bring 3D printing to the masses for less than the price of a fancy steak dinner, and is asking help from Kickstarter backers to make it a reality.While all the $49 early bird spots to get an actual working model of the 3D printer are gone, there are still several spots available to get it for $74, which includes two filaments.Now in all fairness, after seeing the snafu that happened with the Peachy Printer, some Kickstarter backers might be understandably leery of yet another sub-$100 3D printer.101Hero will produce its own filaments, but the company says you can use just about any standard 1.75 millimeter PLA, HIPS, and ABS filament available on the market.Pledge $99 and you don t only get the printer, but 10 different colors of filament.For those of us leery of high-flying, sounds-too-good-to-be-true crowdfunding campaigns, there s no immediate word as to when 101Hero plans to make its printer available commercially.
3D printing technology is on the verge of revolutionizing manufacturing, with recent examples including shoes and a working electric motorcycle.But now printing is about to get a lot more delicious, with a 3D printer that produces gummy candy in a variety of custom shapes and sizes.The device is called the Magic Candy Factory, and it's being installed at Dylan's Candy Bar stores across the US.The device can also produce words, or scan a photo to create a gummy likeness of someone's face.Users can choose from eight different flavors for their edible creation, and each one is priced around $20.Before becoming a gummy creation, the printer heats up the ingredients and then uses a nozzle to apply it to different shapes and forms.
Over my dead bodyA funeral parlour isn't the most obvious place for a 3D printer, but the Longhua funeral parlour in Shanghai offers a very unusual service: 3D printing of body parts for damaged or disfigured corpses.As neurosurgeon Ralph Mobbs put it: "It was as if someone had switched on a light and said 'crikey, if this isn't the future, well then I don't know what is'."The results are 90% accurate, which is impressive for something that simply involves recording sounds on a smartphone.So for many items it's cheaper and easier to order a no-name Chinese knock-off on eBay than to pirate it.The Liberator broken downThat makes it an offence to own any firearm that can't be spotted by a metal detector, and there were calls to make its provisions even tougher to outlaw 3D-printed weapons altogether, although so far 3D-printed guns made of metal are proof of concept rather than production reality.But really affordable 3D printers are limited by two things: the 'golf ball' rule and the lack of color.
Insoles, rocket engines, circuit boards — you name it and there s undoubtedly somebody out there that s figured out a way to print it.In all fairness, it probably can t match the warm acoustic tones of a wooden Stradivarius, but what the 3DVarius lacks in acoustic sound quality, it makes up for with more user-friendly features and broader functionality.Like many of the more affordable printers that have surfaced in the past couple years, 101Hero is a delta-style 3D printer, meaning it uses three vertically moving parallel motors to change the position of the filament extruder.This configuration allows the machine to make accurate prints without any high-precision rails, linear bearings, or other crazy-expensive CNC components you d find in cartesian-style printers.As if that wasn t awesome enough, it s also got a passively cooled extruder tip which is unheard of , and a removable build plate that makes it less of a hassle to retrieve your finished prints.If you leave your wallet behind in a public place, whats to stop a thief from swiping your money and ditching the wallet?
