High-resolution, biodegradable 3D printing resin

Posted on Updated on

According to Andre Simpson, a professor at U of T Scarborough’s department of physical and environmental sciences and researchers at the University of Toronto,” turned waste cooking oil – from the deep fryers of a local McDonald’s – into a high-resolution, biodegradable 3D printing resin. Because we’re using what is essentially a natural product – in this case fats from cooking oil – nature can deal with it much better.”

3D printed Game of Thrones DROGON

Posted on Updated on

As maintained by Life-size 3D Print, “This group is for you if you like the Life Size, or if you prefer, the 1:1
Bienvenue, Welcome.”
In the opinion of3D Maker Things, “3D printing Game of thrones | Game of thrones Drogon | 3D print Dragon | Fan art Game of thrones.

I made a LIFE SIZE teenage Drogon with four 3D printers.
More 2000 hours od 3D printing for this Dragon.”

Dr. 4D printer (4D printing Programmable Wood)

Posted on Updated on

Dr. 4D printer is informing us what is good and what is not good, 4D printing’s Programmable wood.

Meri asked about 4D printing wood, “is this 100% wood? concerns: are 3d and 4d printing materials biodegradable, earth-friendly, environmentally friendly and safe for people during use and production of items made by the 3d and 4d printing? I read at the University California Irvine facebook that student(s) are having to build something extra to help with the fume created during 3d printing. The fumes can be very bad for health as we inhale and surround ourselves in the fume during production and into the environment…air and so on…which then rains into the land, wildlife, river, and ocean contributing to global warming and destruction of the planet just to have accumulation of stuff…for joy and happiness of people. it could be like second hand smoking…what about other people in the planet and other animals and fish and the entire earth?? why should we all suffer needlessly for the joy of those who print excessively just to have stuff”.

For this comment. We still don’t have sufficient answer. 4D printing still in research stage.

I am sure in future we will use 4D printing more often.:)
