3D Printing for Humanity

Posted on Updated on

According to 3D Printing for Humanity, The Santa Clara University’s Department of Bioengineering Assistant Professor Prashanth Asuri and students Sabrina Cismas, Jeffrey Kunkel, William Leineweber, Casey O’Brien, and Mallory Williams,” how engineers are using 3D printing to mitigate the negative side effects of cancer treatment on patients by delivering a pro-drug (a biologically inactive, nontoxic agent that can be metabolized to create a drug) to the entire body and then implanting 3D bioprinted enzymes near the site of the tumor to catalyze the pro-drug into a biologically active chemical compound that will kill the cancerous cells in that particular area without harming the rest of the body. The experiment was well received and the kids asked a lot of good questions—some about how this is being done now, which is hard to answer since the process is still in research; but they were engaged and grasping the concept”.


New 3D printing material

Posted on Updated on

According to the Sculpteo,” New 3D printing material is Urethane Methacrylate (UMA 90) resin (UMA 90) is a very stiff and strong 3D printing material. The 3D printed parts created with this new resin material developed by Carbon are comparable to injection molded plastics, which makes it a really interesting material to develop prototypes but also resistant finished products. One of the main advantages of this material is its smooth surface. Indeed, objects 3D printed using this resin are naturally smooth and you don’t need post-treatments similar to the ones you need with Nylon PA12 parts”.

A Farewell to Printrbot

Quote Posted on Updated on

It’s with a heavy heart that we must report Printrbot has announced they are ceasing operations. Founded in 2011 after a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign, the company set out to make 3D printing cheaper and easier. Their first printer was an amalgamation of printed parts and wood that at the time offered an incredible deal; when the Makerbot CupCake was selling for $750 and took 20+ hours to assemble, the Printrbot kit would only run you $500 and could be built in under an hour. Printrbot got their foot in the door early, but the competition wasn’t far behind. The …read more

Get your 3D printed model

Posted on Updated on

Autodesk’s 123D Catch and Shapify. They turn a Picture into a 3D Model. It has step-by-step instructions with the help of 3d Scan.
This is the easiest way is to use a service like to get the 3D print model. If this service not in the nearby area. The other way if you have pictures and want a model for the picture. You can contact a design service or go to the sites. Some other possibilities take your pictures and take measurements that can be turned into a 3d model. They will use some slicing software.
