3D Printed Toy Knocks Finished Prints Off the 3D Printer: PLAss Joe
Despite the advances in hardware and software and lots of guides online, 3D printing can still be tedious, even for experienced makers. One of the hassles of 3D printing is that your print can get stuck on the print bed; you’ll have to wait for it to cool then gingerly pry it off.

Mounted Heroes Customizable 3D Printed Miniatures: From Desktop to Tabletop
Like Hero Forge, Imagine 3D Miniatures’ Mounted Heroes are an upcoming customizable miniature system based on 3D printing and a user-friendly configurator. While Hero Forge has more diverse characters and more importantly is already up and running, Mounted Heroes does have an ace up its sleeve: mounts.

Electroloom Fabric 3D Printer: Seamless Seamstress

Electroloom Fabric 3D Printer: Seamless Seamstress
We’ve seen 3D printed clothing before, but it’s usually not made of fabric or if it is, it’s basically made through a hybrid of CAD and knitting. The Electroloom could be the first 3D printer that creates clothes out of fabric, combining the familiarity and comfort of traditional clothing with the efficiency and personalization of 3D design.

Computational Hydrographics Applies Patterns Precisely: Copy Paste Connoisseur

Computational Hydrographics Applies Patterns Precisely: Copy Paste Connoisseur
Hydrographics or water transfer printing lets you apply graphics to objects in one pass. It gives a uniform finish and can be used even with large objects. And watching it is a great timewaster. But it’s not ideal for items with complex shapes, and it can be used to apply only graphics with repeating patterns, because it’s hard to align the film that holds the pattern with the substrate object.

TeeBot 3D Printer in a Suitcase: Literally Print Out of the Box
A few months ago we checked out a custom made 3D printer that folds into a suitcase. If you don’t have the time or skills to build your own, check out the TeeBot. It’s built on the same idea – a portable standlone 3D printer – except you’ll be able to buy one.

Pinshape Lets 3D Designers Sell Designs without Giving Away their 3D Model: Stream Machine
Earlier this year we checked out a pair of 3D printers modified to scan, replicate and then destroy an object. The idea is to preserve a product’s rarity – and thus its value – in the age of 3D printing.

Disney Research’s 3D Printer Prints with Fabric: A Whole New World
We can now add fabric to the many kinds of 3D printing “ink”, thanks to Disney Research and their partners from Cornell University and Carnegie Mellon University. They developed a printer-laser cutter hybrid that stacks layers of fabric to create an object.
