Apple vende le Ultimaker 2+ nei suoi negozi in Europa

La decisione di Apple è degna di interesse, perchè rappresenta il primo passo concreto, tangibile, verso la stampa 3D.

Fino ad oggi la casa di Cupertino ha fatto raccolta di brevetti per questa tecnologia: ne abbiamo parlato lo scorso dicembre QUI. Ora passa alla vendita al dettaglio.

Le Ultimaker 2+ sono acquistabili a 2.299 euro in Austria, Repubblica Ceca, Danimarca, Finlandia, Italia, Norvegia, Polonia, Portogallo, Svizzera, Spagna, Svezia e Ungheria.

Il nuovo iPhone7 Plus potrebbe permettere agli utenti di effettuare scan 3D degli oggetti per poi stamparli in 3D con una stampante Ultimaker 2+

This Drone Can Save Lives And Fly Indoors Without Crashing Constantly – via Techcrunch

The cage is held in place by a multi-axis gimbal system (thus the “GimBall” name), allowing the cage to rotate and roll indepedently of the propeller/camera rig at its core.

Surrounding the GimBall’s drone core is a spherical cage which serves three purposes: letting it roll along the wall or ceiling, keeping the device’s propellers away from your skin, and absorbing shock to keep the device in the air.

Polyes Q1 Pen Begins Writing 3D Printing

Polyes Q1, the first photoactive resin-based 3D printing pen, which uses Nobel Prize winning blue light LED technology to cure colored resins and allow for 3D drawing.


The “next generation” 3D printing pen is meeting the approval of fans all over the world, and rightly so. Compared to current 3D pen technologies, such as the hugely successful 3Doodler, the Polyes has no heated parts, needs to perform no extrusion and only uses skin safe, cool, resin that can be cured by a light that is not dangerous to the eyes. The pen also has a series of safety switches to make sure that it does not present a danger of any kind and is suited for children.

4 Auto Companies Using 3D Printing


Remember when some experts said the Internet was a passing fad?

Like it or not, 3D printing technology, seen by some as simply a trend, is apparently here to stay. Some sectors, like the plastics industries, are already jumping into 3D printing research and development with both feet.

It appears auto-makers are also looking at how 3D printers can speed up development, design and ultimately production.

Ford uses 3D printers to produce protoype parts, “shaving months off the development time for individual components used in all of its vehicles, such as cylinder heads, intake manifolds and air vents.”

3D printing technology can also save significant amounts

of money.
