The important step in house building is to make a project and then to find a good team of builders to implement this plan in action. Depending on the professionality of builders the house can be constructed successfully or not. What if we remove the human element from the building process to eliminate the possible mistakes and deliver the building itself to a 3D printer?
An up-to-date internet user is aware that he can’t be sure in the safety of his personal data and passwords of email boxes at all, because the hacking mastery is developing along with security measures of site’s owners. What about novelty in high-tech industry? Maybe new machines that are launched recently are so modernized that are protected from industrial espionage from the very beginning? Or vice versa they may be more vulnerable to hacking because they are not customized and protected well.
CES tech show in Las Vegas presented a variety of new 3D printers and new 3D printing techniques in January 2016. One of them was a 3D printer Mcor Arke that uses quite an advanced and simple technique to get a highly detailed printed object.
What is more important, that the technique is accessible for consumer 3D printers now. Even the launched price of new Mcor Arke ($ 5, 995) is comparatively good for such a high-end machine. The only rival of Mcor Arke is IRIS 3D printer whose price is $40 K.
On the 10th, 11th and 12th of March 2016 the greatest 3D printers are going to be presented at the Shanghai Convention & Exhibition Center of International Sourcing. You have the chance to see the advanced technologies in 3D printing 2016 without getting out of your house.

The Robotic era may come sooner than we think. The MX3D team tries to accelerate this process with their project of 3D bridge printing. Imagine two big robotic arms that print a steel bridge from both parts of the river! This picture may come true next years. Since October 2015 MX3D develops industrial multi-axis robots with 3D tools. They also think about the software that will help to control the print work.
3D printing is conquering the world year by year. It has changed the process of manufacture dramatically. It became easier and more accessible not only for industrial purposes but for personal usage as well. Who could imagine five years ago that an ordinary 13-years boy will be able to design a toy for himself and make it using a home 3D printer? While 3D printing is developing, there is opening a wide range of business ideas based on it. Let’s view 3 main ways of making business basing on 3D printing technology.
The mischiefs and wonders in the life of a three legged border collie started in 2014. He was found with a broken leg as a puppy and was placed at the animal protection agency, RSPCA at Wacol. His right front leg was healed incorrectly and was amputated in a short time. Fortunately, the puppy was adopted by an Australian couple, Rebecca Colvin and Glenn Althor.
A Company 3D Platform, which is specialized on the manufacturing of large scale 3D printers, presented a new printer. They called it the 3DP Workbench. It is a large-format system with a wide build area of 1m x 1m x 0.5m. Workbench provides high-quality resolution to a 70-micron layer.
“The 3DP Workbench is more than just another 3D printer, it has been designed through a professional user-experience process-with input from engineers, product developers and top creative talent around the world-incorporating tools they need to take our 3D platform to the next level,” said John Good, Vice President of Sales & Marketing with 3DP. “The result is a comprehensive toolkit that increases capacity, enables them to expand their capabilities and bring their ideas to life.”
How to facilitate the International Space Station with extra things when it is hundreds of kilometers far from the Earth? The logistics of today is too expensive and difficult for NASA. Huge structures are folded up for sending them in space and then reassembled in orbit. Such transportation looks like Origami, but NASA doesn’t have another choice or rather hasn’t had another choice before this year.
Bio tissues, plastic, metal, food all are great 3D printing materials. But is this all we can print with? What if we take the lightest of the structures and print it using the modern 3D printer? As a result we can get a superlight, strong and flexible object that can be successfully used in aerospace industry as well as in many others.
