So Your Kids Want Toys? Well, Let Them Do Some Work And Print It Themselves!

When I was a kid, I had to earn my keep. Meaning, if I want toys, I had to earn through good behavior, good grades, or when I was little older, acquire it myself from the money I had saved from my pocket money. I would think it should not be any different today. However, you can make it a little more fun like, say for example, getting your kids to build their own toys which, thanks to Toybox 3D Printer for kids, you can easily achieve. There’s not need to hit up the workshop which will put your junior at risk. What a time to be alive, don’t you think? Continue reading So Your Kids Want Toys?

Metal Delta 3D Printer: All Metal, Large Volume, And Seriously Affordable

We don’t use 3D printers a lot, but we could imagine two things: first, shipping is hell of a cost and second, being preassembled means you know nothing of its inner workings apart from what’s laid out in the user’s manual. Of course, that’s just us. Some people are completely undaunted by cost and also, it matters not to them if there are gears or whatnot within. But for us, we are more for ‘knowing your 3D printer’, just like we would with our motor vehicles. If you are on the same page of us, then you gotta love the newest 3D printer from California startup, Blue Eagle Labs. Metal Delta, as it is called, is a robust all-metal frame 3D printer built for precision 3D printing. Continue reading Metal Delta 3D Printer: All Metal, Large Volume, And Seriously Affordable

Stratasys J750 3D Prints Photorealistic Prototype In A Single Process

Rapid prototyping has just officially becomes seriously rapid – thanks to the Stratasys J750 3D Printer. Why?
