NASA recently sent an email to the International Space Station (I.S.S.) containing the instructions for a 3D printer to 3D print a wrench they needed to make repairs on board.
Nasa was responding to a request by ISS commander Barry Wilmore for a ratcheting socket wrench.
Previously, if astronauts requested a specific item they could have waited months for it to be flown up on one of the regular supply flights.
Mike Chen, founder of Made In Space, the company behind the 3-D printer, said: “We had overheard ISS Commander Barry Wilmore (who goes by “Butch”) mention over the radio that he needed one, so we designed one in CAD and sent it up to him faster than a rocket ever could have.”Read the full story here
Some people are using 3D printing to make weapons including guns. The good news is that the material 3D printers print is not strong enough to safely fire the weapons putting the weapon users in great danger and risk of death or injury.
The 3D printed weapons are still considered weapons in most countries and owners still face the same consequence as if it were a real weapon. ***Disclaimer*** By posting this J – CAD Inc. is not providing legal advice on 3D printed weapon ownership or advice on properly using 3D printed weapons. Moreover, we do not endorse the use of any weapons 3D printed or other. See the full story here.
A 3D printing process that harnesses light and oxygen has been demonstrated at the Ted (Technology, Entertainment and Design) conference in Vancouver.
Carbon3D said its “game-changing” process could make objects such as car parts, medical devices or shoes. The technique was inspired by the film Terminator 2, in which the T-1000 robot rises from a pool of metallic liquid. Read the full story here
The “Left-Shark” from Katy Perry’s Super Bowl 2015 Half Time show who missed a few steps has become a viral 3D print.
Left Shark became a viral hit after appearing to forget its steps during a routine with the 30-year-old artist.
3D-printing is becoming an increasing headache for companies trying to protect their intellectual property.
Falling costs of 3D printers, coupled with a growing community of model designers, means many small products can be made to a relatively high quality.
In a letter, the lawyers said Perry had not consented to the use of the shark, which was being sold through Shapeways.com.
It is being printed and supplied by Shapeways and J – CAD Inc.. See the full story here
Even the airline industry is using 3D printing to make complex parts for commercial jets. The new Airbus A350 uses over 1000 3D printed parts!!
In a statement the US-Israeli firm said that its Stratasys FDM 3D Production System had been used to produce “more than 1,000″ flight parts” for the first-of-its-type A350 XWB aircraft, delivered in December 2014.
The process helped Airbus ensure it met its own delivery deadlines to airlines.
“From what I can gather it’s certainly unprecedented in scale,” said James Woodcock, an expert on 3D printing with Rapid News.
This poor guy lost his jaw but due to 3D printing technology his life is back to normal.
The beak, made of medical-grade titanium, replaces the loggerhead turtle’s jaws, half of which were sheared off in the accident.
Detailed scans of the injured creature’s head were used to generate the design of the prosthetic beak.
If the prosthetic is not rejected by the turtle, the animal will be returned to the sea shortly.
The 45kg (99lb) creature was taken to the sea turtle Research, Rescue and Rehabilitation centre at Pamukkale University in Denizli, Turkey soon after being found badly injured at sea.

Nowadays 3D printing has finally reached its tipping point and there are millions of 3D products available these days, but what are the most popular ones?
Constructed with 3D printing, this residential house went viral on social media in 2017. It took less than 24 hours to build and cost about $11,000, with the doors and windows being the most expensive components, and is considered eco-friendly, reliable, and affordable compared to a traditional house building.
The house was built in a town outside Moscow by the tech startup Apis Cor. The portable 3D printer made the house’s concrete partitions and walls as a wholly connected structure, while a small group of building contractors added the windows and roof, and completed the interior. Inside, this 3D printed house has almost all of the features of a traditionally built home.
Apis Cor claimed that such fast-to-build, cozy 3D printed residential houses could significantly improve their living conditions of people in need worldwide.
This tiny and neat micro-van from Honda has a sophisticated lightweight frame and its bodywork is almost entirely 3D printed. The 3D printed electrical car was created by Honda Motor Co., Ltd. and Kabuku Inc. in about 2 months. When compared to the traditional methods of car building, this micro commuter promises the enormous cost savings.
The car features a little battery that powers it and a frame of the pipes similar to a motorbike, giving it a strong yet lightweight narrow structure beneath the panels, which are also 3D printed. Micro commuter features only one seat and a driving range of approximately 50 miles provided by the battery pack built into the car’s floor of the van.
3D printing isn’t about fun and curiosity only; it can mean a lot to humanity. For instance, it can help kids in need to live a happier life. Since the standard prosthetic arms cost from tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars, 3D printed hands are less expensive yet still efficient and kid-friendly.
E-NABLE’s elbow and wrist actuated prosthetics cost from $30 to $50, but most of the 3D printed hands have been given for free and they are customized. The e-NABLE’s network is also working on printing the hands with various skin tones and materials that would hopefully make the 3D printed hands look more similar to the human one.
Janne Kyttanen is the first designer who started a design label in 3D printing, namely. MGX. He was also the first to create a line of functional yet unique 3D printed products. This functional and ultra-light 3D printed sofa is probably his biggest achievement. Printed in 6000 layers, the sofa has an incredibly strong structure while weighing only 5.5 pounds (2.5 kilos).
Open, contemporary, beautiful, elegant, and spare, Sofa So Good has attracted tons of fans over social media. Though the sofa is totally unaffordable, it shows that everything can be possible with 3D printing. Plus, it gives us an opportunity to create our own 3D printed pieces of furniture at much cheaper prices.
