CNET: DeeGreen 3D Printer Review

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x5TbjFIa4Oc]

Synopsis. CNET editor Dong Ngo creates an object with the DeeGreen 3D printer from be3D. Measuring 19.4 by 15.5 by 15.3 inches (495x395x390mm), the DeeGreen is about the same physical size as the Monoprice. However, it takes just a fraction of the time to get set up and running. In fact, it was easier to use than some regular printers in my trial. Out of the box, the printer is fully assembled with all of its important parts tied in place. There are just two parts you need to install. [More…] This video was first published to YouTube on 7 October 2014.

PostHuman: 3D Printed Tissues

Synopsis. In “Posthuman,” we ask some of the most important names in science to help us peer through and envision what the world of tomorrow looks like. From the ability to see through walls and heal ourselves with robotic immune systems, to the use of 3D printers to generate replacement organs, “Posthuman” encapsulates a buffer zone between what is here today, and what is just around the corner.

In our first segment, we spoke to Ali Khademhosseini, associate professor at Harvard-MIT, at the 2014 Blavatnik Awards. Khademhosseini is pioneering the push to develop 3D printed tissues and organs. His team was among the first to successfully 3D-print blood vessels. This video was first published to YouTube on 4 October 2014. (source)

Euronews Science: Biological Ink to Create 3-D Printed Organs for Transplant

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JpBy_T94TWw]

Synopsis. Scientists could be one step closer to creating organs for transplant using 3D printing technology. A group of researchers from South Carolina in the USA, together with their Chinese colleagues from Zhejiang University, have made headway in understanding how so-called biological “inks” behave as they are dispensed through the nozzle head of a 3-D printer. The printer drops the biological ink, composed of cells, in a precise way to build up the organ of choice. “The broad spectrum of what we’re doing is called biofabrication,” says Dr Michael Yost, who is heading the research. “Biofabrication just means using some basic techniques in engineering to create new tissues and tissue components,” he added. Scientists lower the bio-ink through a syringe into a Petri dish. The printer is equipped with UV rays to sterilise the cells, while two mounted lights hover above with electronic microscopes to allow a closer look at the cells. [More…]

3D Printed Gold by Shapeways

[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TCyYf8lUqqs]

Video first published to YouTube by Shapeways on Apr 25, 2014.

Welcome to the golden age of 3D printing: introducing 14 carat gold to the Shapeways materials family.

This video highlights the hand-polishing process that gives our designers’ products their beautiful high shine.

Like all of Shapeways cast metals (silver, bronze, brass), your designs are 3D printed in wax. The wax model is used to make a plaster mold for casting, and is made through traditional casting, hand-finished processes. With 3D printing, jewelers, designers and makers can design intricacies and geometries that are not possible through traditional mold making.
