HP Could be Working on a 3D Glass Printer

It has been quite a year for HP. They started off impressively in March by announcing two massive changes in 3D printing, namely speeding it all up and adding more quality. Although these were vague descriptions, the brand managed to get the attention of several media. But then, after just a week, the company postponed their changes to late 2014, and that news was followed by the 'meh'-item in May, in which they stated the changes will solely relate to 3D printing technology in professional … [Read more...]

This video could likely make you feeling a little … [Read more...]

This is What a 3D Printed Band Sounds Like

Olaf Diegel is a man we've been writing about a lot lately. The man aims to combine 3D printing technology and musical instruments.
