Disney Research creates a 3D printer that can print in fabric

A new form of 3D printing technology can make embeddedable, plush toys. 3D printing has grown leaps and bounds over the last couple of years, not only in terms of the gadgets themselves, but the filaments they are capable of extruding as well. Still though, most consumer-grade 3D printers only construct objects comprised of rigid and hard materials (like plastics, ceramics or metal) fused […]

Modding a post-WWII Craftsman table saw into a fully-functioning 3D printer

Boy, would our grandfathers have loved to see this! While 3D printing’s roots only date back to the 1980s, do you ever wonder what an additive manufacturing machine would’ve looked like had the processing power of today been available 70 years ago? Fortunately, Maker Chad Bridgewater has given us at least a faint idea. The Maker recently took the shell of a post-WWII […]
