From pixels to plate, food has become 3D printing’s delicious new frontier

From pixels to plate, food has become 3D printing’s delicious new frontier There’s no doubt about it — 3D food printing’s come a long way.Most 3D food printers are deposition printers, meaning they deposit layers of raw material in a process known as additive manufacturing.

Facebook's new 360-degree cameras change the virtual reality game

Facebook's new 360-degree cameras change the virtual reality game On the second day of Facebook's F8 conference in San Jose, the company unveiled two new cameras that have the potential to change the way people both capture and experience virtual reality.The x24 and x6, as they are called, use their assortment of cameras to shoot 360-degree 3D video.

A French presidential candidate is using his ‘hologram’ to reach more voters

A French presidential candidate is using his ‘hologram’ to reach more voters Take French presidential candidate Jean-Luc Melenchon.” Another said it was “cool and crazy to imagine Jean-Luc Melenchon was in Dijon and six other cities at the same time.

3D-printing technology is making custom prosthetics a reality

3D-printing technology is making custom prosthetics a reality Thanks to the tool they built, the Pittsburgh-based budding musician was able to play at his grade school recital.This is because 3D printing makes iterative design easier, so that designs and prototypes can be endlessly tweaked to ensure they can carry out the task at hand.

MakeVR is here to steamroll the learning curve for 3D modeling software

MakeVR is here to steamroll the learning curve for 3D modeling software But there’s still a big barrier standing between having an idea in your head and transforming that idea into a tangible object: 3D modeling software.The problem is that practically all 3D CAD (computer aided drafting) software has a pretty steep learning curve.

Researchers record 65 percent improvement in 3D rendering speeds by processing in memory

Researchers record 65 percent improvement in 3D rendering speeds by processing in memory A researcher at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory has developed a new architecture for 3D stacked memory.It uses the hardware’s capacity for “processing in memory” to deliver 3D rendering speeds that are up to 65 percent faster than previous methodology.

3D printing could help repair damaged knees with cartilage-mimicking hydrogel

3D printing could help repair damaged knees with cartilage-mimicking hydrogel Researchers from Duke University have created a new type of 3D bioprinting material they hope will one day be able to help form cartilage implants for patients with damaged knees.“We’ve developed the first 3D-printable hydrogel that surpasses both the compression strength and elasticity of cartilage,” Feichen Yang, a researcher on the project, told Digital Trends.

Forget plastic — this desktop 3D printer builds with aluminum, and titanium, and steel

Forget plastic — this desktop 3D printer builds with aluminum, and titanium, and steel While previous 3D metal printers have often been limited in terms of their speed and accessibility, Desktop Metal’s “microwave enhanced sintering” process makes 3D metal printing as straightforward as printing in plastic.“We expect a number of industries to be interested in a Studio system, including automotive, manufacturing, and consumer products.
