3D printed instruments are not a new thing, as we have seen with Olaf Diegel’s ever growing range of AM guitar creations. But most quality boutique instruments carry a price tag to match the effort of creation and the small scales of production. Enter musician/engineer Matthew Canel, who hopes to change that. Canel is an…

It has been a while since we have covered anything in the domain of bioprinting. It’s not that we don’t like writing about bioprinting around here, but given the current state of technological readiness there is a very fine line between a 3D printed heart, and a 3D printed steak, functionally speaking. But bioprinting goes…

We see a lot of metal and concrete printing in the construction industry (mostly concrete), and rarely get to read about use of plastics in construction, except for the occasional story on using plastics as fillers in concrete. Well, if you are an architect with an appreciation of thermoplastics and the forms permitted by 3D…

Have you ever stared at an M.C. Escher picture until you grew dizzy or simply marveled at the way Escher configured angles and drew objects to trick the eye? Well, there’s no question Escher is a master of illusion, beckoning us to an imaginary world of complexity and perspective that teaches the lesson that not everything is…
