St John's University opens first MakerBot Innovation Center in NYC
St John's University and MakerBot have unveiled a new MakerBot Innovation Center. St John's University is the first higher education institution in New York City to open a MakerBot Innovation Center and the second in the state overall.
3D printed get up and go bots getting closer, study says
Robotics researchers have for the first time used a commercial 3D printer to embed complex sensors inside robotic limbs and grippers. But they found that materials commercially available for 3D printing still need to be improved before the robots can be fully functional.
MakerBot expands METHOD Materials offering
MakerBot, a global leader in 3D printing, expands its materials offering with polyethylene terephthalate glycol, better known as PETG. PETG is the first Specialty Material to be released for the MakerBot METHOD 3D Printer.

Stratasys and Materialise: 3D printed medical models come to life
Further bringing 3D printed medical models to life, Stratasys is expanding the suite of printers and materials validated by its collaborator Materialise as part of FDA-cleared Materialise Mimics inPrint software. The end result is the most versatile 3D printing system for point-of-care across hospitals and physicians - advancing production of patient-specific, life-like anatomical models for diagnostic purposes in conjunction with other tools and expert clinical judgement.
New era in 3D printed production metal parts
First unveiled earlier this year, the additive platform is based on Stratasys' innovative, first-of-its-kind "Layered Powder Metallurgy" technology, designed to make production of metal parts quicker, easier and more cost-effective than ever before.
Siemens Mobility to 3D print replacement parts
Ability to rapidly and cost-effectively 3D print replacement parts and production tools on-demand eliminates obsolete parts and warehousing costs
3D printing materials market to be worth $16B in 2028
Following commercialisation in the 1990s, today 3D printing has established itself as an attractive manufacturing solution for prototyping and beyond. Materials suppliers are poised to capitalise on this unmet demand, with the 3D printing materials market to be worth $16B in 2028.
Stratasys spin outs come out of stealth mode
2018 has been the year of major new announcements at Stratasys. Not only have they announced that they are developing two new technologies, but they are doing so through the launch of two start-ups and are venturing into the lucrative metal 3D printing ecosystem in the process
3D printing the (near) impossible with soluble supports
Since its inception in the late 1980s, 3D printing, or additive manufacturing, has been the subject of intense media attention due to the design and manufacture freedom afforded to the end user. Indeed, this freedom has become so intertwined with the concept of 3D printing that manufacturers will promote their products with the tagline that "complexity is free".
