3D-printed toothbrush


Blizzident is making 3d printed toothbrush.

This toothbrush is 3D printed and material is soft and we can use this material it is safe according to Blizzident.

3d printed toothbrush cleans teeth in six seconds.
When using the Blizzident for the first couple of times, its a good idea to practice in front of a mirror.

By biting the brush using what dentists describe as a “sub gingival bass technique” technique, users clean the space underneath the gums as well as other hard-to-reach regions including the wisdom teeth.

According to Blizzident,Tooth brushing time is just 6 seconds. Conventional brushing and flossing takes 10 minutes per day Blizzident brushing and flossing takes just about one minute per day.

Thus you even save about 50 hours per year – more than a working week.

If we order from dentist, it will be more expensive around 400 US$.

Depends on  what city.

tailored Blizzident costs 99.- Euro / US$.

The one-time design/tailoring fee is 99.- Euro / US$.
A replacement costs just 49.- (in a pack of 3).
Family rebates are available.

The current delivery time is ca. 8 weeks.

Blizzident recommend replacing it with a new Blizzident toothbrush every 12 months (after they tailored a Blizzident to your teeth, replacement Blizzidents cost only a fraction of the price of a new one, and they can be sent to you automatically). 🙂

Audi 3D prints Grand Prix Racer

———————————————-

Audi has used 3D printing to produce a scaled model of a historical Grand Prix racer Auto Union Type C from the year 1936.  Audi 3D printed different pieces of the model and assembled the car.  Audi used a 3d printer that uses aluminum or steel powder.  The3D printer uses a laser to melt the metal powder.  Layers and layers of the metal powder are melted to form parts of the car.  This process allows creation of parts having complex geometries that are very difficult to produce using conventional manufacturing techniques.  With the technology used, the 3D printer can produce objects that can be up to 24 cm long and up to 20 cm high.

Audi is looking forward to using this technology for mass production.  According to Dr Hubert Waltl, head of toolmaking for the Volkswagen group shown in the picture  below driving the replica car, “We are constantly exploring the boundaries of new processes.  One of our goals is to apply metal printers in series production.”
