Are you preparing a Minecraft related costume for Halloween? You have a variety of options when it comes to props. You can get the official foam pickaxe from Mojang and ThinkGeek, or you can print one of your in-game tools or creations.
It’s still not in it’s final form, but even if it evolves significantly I’m pretty sure that Minecraft will stick to it’s roots – it’s a basic CAD (Computer Aided Design) program. A CAD program with monsters.
Etsy sellers Stefan, Barak, Doug and Erin – collectively known as Mechanical Oddities – have the perfect dice for fans of steampunk tabletop games. Or steampunk. Or games. Or gambling. The point is they make beautiful six-sided dice with a steampunk design.
Chris Myles has been wowing us for quite some time now with his Portal-related props and toys. If you’re a fan of his work, now’s your chance to literally pay him back – and get cool stuff in return – by copping his custom made 3D-printed rings.
3D printing has been used in a variety of different ways, but this is the first time that I’ve seen it being used to print out a whole airplane. UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) are pretty important in the military these days, and even on science missions.
I have trouble understanding why anyone would want a fake 3D clone of themselves, but hey, who really understands the Japanese? One shop in Tokyo, Japan, has decided to offer realistic replicas of people to discerning customers.
Let me start out by saying that I really dislike the red Angry Bird. Not the big red one, the regular-size one that seems fully incapable of doing anything other than bouncing off of surfaces and not knocking over anything.
We have seen our share of geeky cufflinks around here, like the USB cufflinks a while back. I personally have no need for cufflinks. The last time I held a set of cufflinks was in the late 80’s when my cousin got married, and I didn’t know what they were.
Ok, I need one of these on my desk. Now. This awesome full-color sandstone Super Mario Bros. sculpture is actually rendered on a 3D printer. Metin Seven of Seven’s Heaven created his Mariorama sculpture using Shapeways’ 3D printing technology.
I’ve heard plenty about 3D printing, but this is probably the first iPhone app that will scan your face in 3D and allow you to render a 3D model of your face. It’s kind of amazing what the iPhone can do, isn’t it?
If you ask me, the uses for 3D printing technology keep getting more and more impressive. Take, for example, this guitar that had its body parts manufactured using a 3D printer.
If you watch and listen to the video below of Bård S D’s open-source Zoybar TOR guitar, I think you’ll be impressed with what he was able to do with a 3D printer:
Not bad for something that was modeled in the digital world, then printed, eh?
Ever wanted to print something using one of those 3D material printers, but didn’t like how it just spat out some sort of weird plastic composite? Well thanks to new advances in the technology, you can now print 3D objects out of sturdy titanium.
