It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s . . . the world’s first jet-powered, 3D-printed drone! What may be the world’s largest and fastest 3D-printed unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) debuted at the Dubai Airshow this week. The drone is the result of a collaboration between 3D-printing technology company Stratasys Ltd. (Minneapolis) and Aurora Flight Sciences (Manassas, VA), which develops and manufactures advanced aerospace vehicles. A video embedded below shows the UAV in flight.

Disney develops plush toy 3D printer

Thursday, May 14th, 2015 | Permalink

3D printing is coming to the soft toy arena with a development at Disney Research Pittsburgh. A paper presented at the Association for Computing Machinery’s CHI conference in Seoul, Korea, in April described  a new type of 3D printer that can form precise, but soft and deformable 3D objects from layers of off-the-shelf fabric. The printer fabricates soft objects and provides support for interactivity including touch sensing and wireless power. Tagging Options Domain:  All Sites Keywords:  3D printing read more
