The memorable date –now marked as Blender’s official birthday– is defined by an old backup of Ton’s SGI Indigo2 workstation.
BigRep, a German manufacturing company, has created the first prototype of its 3D-printed, e-Motorcycle "NERA." It is the world's first fully 3D-printed and fully functional electric motorbike and, though it isn't currently manufactured for customers to purchase, the Berlin-based company hopes the prototype showcases the potential of 3D printing.
Researchers at North Carolina State University have created 3D-printed flexible mesh structures that can be controlled with applied magnetic fields while floating on water. The structures can grab small objects and carry water droplets, giving them the potential to be useful as soft robots that mimic creatures living on water surfaces or that can serve as tissue scaffolds for cell cultures.
Desktop Metal, a 3D printing unicorn, has raised another €160 million, bringing its total funding to a whopping €438 million and its valuation to some €1.5 billion.
The U.S. Air Force has 3D printed and installed a new titanium replacement piece for the F-22 Raptor stealth fighter. The Pentagon hopes this is the start of big things to come, as additive manufacturing could allow for newer, stronger parts for aging aircraft produced in less time.
