When I went to New York some years ago, I received four pieces of advice from a Texan gentleman philosophizing in an Irish Bar. The first three nuggets of wisdom he gave me were the vague kind of advice you’d expect e.g. ‘always h [...]

A recent paper published in the Marine Technology Society Journal, gives tantalizing details of a 3D printed autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) inspired by the water-jet propulsion motion of squids. The ‘squid-marine’ is designed [...]

A paper has been released supporting the claims that a team of researchers from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU), the University of South Alabama, and Singapore University of Technology and Design have managed to hack into [...]

There are three basic permanent marking laser services on the market today; laser marking, laser etching and laser engraving. Each one offers a permanent marking solution to clients adding a permanent marking solution in many appl [...]

3D scanning, modelling and printing has long been a great helper in archaeology. We're reported how it is used to determine the death of Lucy, an ancient human fossil specimen found in Ethiopia in 1974. Recently, scientists from t [...]

UK based LPW Technology have opened a new research and development facility in the internationally recognised Daresbury Laboratory in Cheshire, UK. LPW is a market leader in the development of metal powder degradation and manufact [...]

The voestalpine Group is expanding from traditional steel manufacturer to innovator, with the opening of a new research and development facility in Düsseldorf. The voestalpine Additive Manufacturing Center will centralize all the [...]

Our 3D Printing Industry team recent reported on a young girl who discovered and then 3D printed a replica of an ancient skull. Now, a recent discovery found that the famous fossilized human ancestor dubbed “Lucy” probably died fr [...]

Digital scanning has been a particularly useful tool for many historic sites over years, as excavating them can often cause more damage than good, leaving a destroyed piece of history that no one can enjoy. The method of preservin [...]

Stanford University has found a way to use 3D scanning and printing to study rocks that we cannot possibly hold in our hands. Their research has been published in the journal, Science. It’s a relatively simple concept in truth, bu [...]
