This 3D printer can produce objects smaller than red blood cells

Researchers have developed a 3D printer that can create objects as tiny as 0.001 millimeters. A team of researchers from South Korea’s Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST) have developed a 3D printing technology that is capable of producing high-resolution 3D patterns as tiny as 0.001 millimeter in size, which happens to be thinner than a human red blood cell. […]

Building a $60 SLA 3D printer with LEGO and K’NEX

Don’t want to spend big bucks on an SLA printer but tired of FDM? Make your own with LEGO, K’NEX and Arduino. While the market for 3D printers has surely grown throughout the years, up until now a majority of Makers have turned to Fused Deposition Modelling (FDM) machines. These work by heating a material, extruding it out of a moving […]

SeraMaker is an open-source, Arduino-powered 3D printer

This open-source 3D printer was inspired by the RepRap Prusa Mendel i2.  The brainchild of an Italian Maker “SebaSera94” as part of his a project at the Istituto D’Istruzione Superiore Giacomo Floriani, SeraMaker is a RepRap-inspired 3D printer. Based on the Prusa Mendal i2, this FDM machine is comprised of six pieces of medium-density fiberboard ranging in thickness from five millimeters for the base to 12 millimeters […]
