General Electric has a great project for aviation enthusiasts, makers and 3D printer owners who are desperate to prove to people that their device can make awesome things. It’s a 3D model of one of its jet engines.
Designer and illustrator Metin Seven came up with a 3D printed tribute to the 8-bit era of gaming and its legendary console, the NES. Metin simply calls it Mario’s Grave and features the pipe and ground from Super Mario Bros.
We’ve featured a handful of 3D printers that can lay out conductive tracks on a variety of materials. But that’s just part of the process of making a circuit board; you’ll still need to place a variety of small parts on the board.
With the right tools, you can 3D print almost anything: a quadcopter, an action figure version of yourself or even a pixel perfect replica of a painting. But a team of astronomers were able to print something that’s literally out of this world.
When life gives you PLA, make 3D Printed Failures. Digital fabrication studio Bits to Atoms is cashing in on its mistakes by selling defective 3D printed objects. Because Goat Simulator.
Ironically purchase 3D Printed Failures from Bits to Atoms for $6.66 (USD) each.
A few weeks ago we saw how you can use a Game Boy Pocket’s case and buttons to make a Raspberry Pi handheld console. If you don’t have a Game Boy Pocket but have access to a 3D printer, Adafruit has a viable alternative called PiGRRL.
Last year Leo Marius blew minds when he shared OpenReflex, an open source and affordable 3D printed SLR camera. Leo is now raising funds to help him improve his design, and in return you can get a ready to assemble OpenReflex kit.
We’ve featured free 3D files for a pretty good interpretation of a Cyvasse set, inspired by the eponymous board game in the A Song of Ice and Fire novels. But if you’d rather buy a ready to play set, check out Michael Le Page’s creation.
Are you struggling with Hearthstone‘s Arena mode? Do you have more red X marks than keys to your name? Thingiverse user Danny Dillen knows how you can get more keys: print them. Danny is working on 3D models of the Arena’s symbols of victory and loot.
The first time we featured Instructables member Yvo de Haas aka Dragonator, we checked out his GLaDOS lamp. Now he’s back with another Portal-themed creation, a life-sized replica of the game’s robotic turret. It has moveable parts, emits lights and sound effects and can even track a moving target.
We’ve seen a couple of iPad apps that simplify 3D modeling for kids. Mission Street Manufacturing wants to go beyond that and teach children how 3D printers work as well. Its Printeer is designed to be used by kids and K-12 schools.
A couple of months ago we talked about the Rabbit Proto, an add-on that lets existing 3D printers print with conductive ink and other viscous materials. Structur3D’s Discov3ry extruder is like Rabbit Proto, but it’s designed to be more versatile from the get go.
We’ve seen 3D printers make chocolate, pizza, pasta and more. Here’s one that prints fruits. Or rather, “fruits.” Developed by English company Dovetailed, the printer uses drops of fruit juice to form food using a culinary process called spherification.
I am a big fan of the Call of Duty video games and I am waiting in anticipation for the next entry to land. The next game is called Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and it will launch on November 4, 2014.
Talk about letting your imagination fly. Illlustrating the capabilities of 3D printing pens, Matt Quest used a 3D AirPen to doodle a tiny quadcopter frame and combined it with parts from an RC Eye One micro quadcopter.
