Stratasys' unveiled two 3D printers for industrial uses, including a machine that builds objects sideways for limitless sizes and a printer on the end of a robotic arm, enabling never-before capable details and object strength.
Scientists at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory have created 3D-printable, bio-based "smart" materials that can change shape when heating with an electrical current or exposed to various ambient temperatures.
With the growth of Internet-connected 3D printers, researchers say there's a threat of hackers tweaking manufacturing specifications and introducing defects that affect the reliability of parts for numerous industries.
While 3D printer sales are expected to grow over the next four years, the consumer market has failed to take off as fast as expected. The reason? Buyers are still trying to figure out why they’d need a 3D printer at all.
