This is Europe’s biggest 3D printer and it has wowed internationally by making an entire two-story house. To top it off, it’s reportedly the largest house printed in one piece – with a fixed printer, in history. This impressive digital feat was accomplished by a Belgian sustainable construction company, Kamp C.
This is PULSE, a 3D-printed pendant, or wearable device that pulses or vibrates when the wearer’s hands are approaching his/her face. It’s geared at lessening the spread of COVID-19, which is easily transmitted via the mucus membranes – the nose, eyes, and mouth, the entryways for infection.
A research team at Northwestern University has developed a record-breaking 3D printer that is bigger, faster, and more precise and it can print an object the size of an adult human in just a few hours. Using HARP (high-area rapid printing), the new technology allows for an unprecedented quantity of high-resolution manufacture products on-demand.
WASP and MC A – Mario Cucinella Architects teamed up to construct eco-sustainable 3D printed houses using a 3D printer called a Crane WASP. This includes a Gaia that uses natural waste materials, including raw earth, straw, and rice husk and a Tecla, a new circular housing model, created using entirely reusable, recyclable materials taken from the local terrain.
WASP (World’s Advanced Saving Project) has developed a custom 3D printed face mask with a replaceable filter that’s non-irritating and sanitizable. Using photogrammetry with a standard smartphone camera, a 3D scan of a person’s face is obtained. The photos are then reprocessed to create a 3D mesh.
