3D Printed Gun “Liberator”
Cody Wilson appears in a brief, suggestive video below promoting his 3D printed gun project, the “Liberator“.
3D Printing on Asteroids and Mars
NASA engineers use 3D printing to build a next-generation rover to support humans exploring other worlds, such as asteroids and, eventually, Mars. Watch the video below or see more at Stratasys.
Collcap Packaging in the UK is using revolutionary 3D printing technology to prototype cosmetics packaging for their many international perfumery and cosmetics suppliers. Using the Stratasys Objet30 Pro 3D printer, Collcap’s designers are able to turn 3D CAD designs into accurate prototypes using a choice of 7 different materials ranging from blue, gray, white and black to clear transparency, high temperature resistance and polypropylene-like.
The transparent material (Objet VeroClear) is particularly useful in simulating glass and PMMA. 3D printing allows Collcap to place precise transparent replicas in the hands of their customers only a few short hours after their initial design. Once the chosen 3D printed models are approved the designs are sent to glass cutting and then final manufacturing.
Abe Reichental, CEO of 3D Systems, speaks with Peter Marsh from Financial Times about the launch of the Cube 3D printer and the potential disruption of 3D printing in the video below.
