Growing a 'Living Hinge' with 3D Printing


One of the most fascinating examples of how far 3D printing has advanced is its ability to produce truly functional parts such as living hinges. A living hinge, also known as a flexible hinge, is a thin, flexible piece of plastic that joins two rigid plastic parts or panels together. Living hi … [Read more...]

Beyond prototypes – 3D printing fills the gap between design and reality

And the advantages are two-fold: speed and realism – with both these benefits intimate … [Read more...]

What is 3D printing and additive manufacturing?

Michael Neil over at posts a great video explaining the principles of 3D printing by contrasting well-known 'subtractive' manufacturing processes such as milling with 3D printing, which is an 'additive' manufacturing process. The machine he's demonstrating is the Objet Connex500 multi-m … [Read more...]

"Objectified" My first movie review: Documentary about our relationship with design.

A coworker told me about this interesting documentary about design, called Objectified. The main reason it tweaked my interest was he said that they showed our Stratasys' Dimension 3D printers building some rapid prototypes for a few seconds. So I made this my very first iTunes rental to watch on my … [Read more...]
