3D Printing Replicates Silent Flight Owls Next Gen Aircraft

3D Printing Replicates Silent Flight Owls Next Gen Aircraft

Silent air vehicles for transport and defense have been identified as an area of national need in the U.S. in a bid to cut noise pollution and enhance military intelligence. In the wild, owls are perhaps one of the best examples of natural stealth and aerial agility, giving researchers a promising area for potential development. Inspired […]

Delivering a new life to conjoined twins

Delivering a new life to conjoined twins

3D visualization and printing expertise of 3D Systems helps team of surgeons deal with complexity of separating conjoined twins. There’s a 50 million to one chance that triplets will include conjoined twins. On top of that, there’s a 6% chance that twins of any kind will be joined near the hips. Despite the odds, that […]

Marines Send 3D Printers to Combat Zone to Fix Gear Faster

Marines Send 3D Printers to Combat Zone to Fix Gear Faster

Three years into the coalition fight against Islamic State militants, the battlefield remains fairly austere, without the major forward bases or large unit presence common to previous wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Into this environment, the Marine Corps has quietly deployed several 3D printers, hoping to highlight the value of the emerging technology to speed up supply […]

Student creates physical interface for 3D modelling: TAC.TILES

Student creates physical interface for 3D modelling: TAC.TILES

We asked the creator of a new 3D modelling interface about his design project. Belgian product design student Simon Van Pottelbergh has designed a physical interface for 3D modelling and 3D printing called ‘TAC.TILES’. The modular interface is designed to enhance user experience via physical interaction. The project eliminates the need for virtual interfaces. He explains the name TAC.TILES […]
