Budding inventors, artists, designers and indeed children worldwide have been waiting with bated breath for the arrival of ThingMaker, Mattel’s 3D printer. The printer is aimed at kids and will allow youngsters to print their own toys in the comfort of their own homes. The device, which was unveiled at the New York Toy Fair back in February this year, works with an app that Mattel developed in partnership with the software company, Autodesk.
When William Boeing founded what is now one of the world’s most recognisable brands back in the early 1900’s he declared that his company had “embarked as pioneers upon a new science and industry” and asserted that no novel idea should be dismissed with the statement “It can’t be done”. Fast forward more than a hundred years and Boeing’s words appear prophetic as his company, in partnership with Oak Ridge National Laboratory has set a new world record for the largest solid object to be created through the process of 3D printing.
Here at 3D Quick Printing, the Midlands fasting growing 3D printing service bureau, we use FDM technology to 3D print parts in ABS plastic. Parts are strong, functional and are being used in a wide range of applications. For the last couple of years, we’ve been using 2 Stratasys 3D printers and more often than not they’ve been producing parts 24 / 7.
The ability to create or replicate objects by printing them in three dimensions in offices, or even in the home, would have seemed like the stuff of science fiction fantasy only a few years ago. But now scientists are going one step further and working on 3D food printers.
Here at 3D Quick Printing, the Midlands fasting growing 3D printing service bureau, we’re used to seeing quite a lot of weird and wonderful parts and gadgets created by hobbyist and designers. However, early last week we were amazed by what people are sending us to 3D print at our 3D printing service bureau. Please read on.
The 3D printing community is blooming, as we’ve argued before, and the growing number of available 3D printers definitely reflects an expanding market. However, a new study reveals that the 3D printing market in 2015 shines an interesting new light on the so-called 3D printing revolution. We were amazed to hear at 3D printing service bureau that the 2015 3D printing market has grown tremendously with 220,000 3D printers being sold where most of them are the professional grade 3D printers by Stratasys and 3D Systems.
Our 3D printing service bureau 3D Quick Printing didn’t exhibit at TCT show this year. It really is the best UK exhibition for all those involved in 3D printing and Additive Manufacturing. This exhibition is in its 12th year and is getting bigger and bigger continuing to grow and providing great exposure for 3D printing companies, suppliers and enthusiasts around the UK and the rest of the World.
If you’ve been a fan of 3D printing or used a 3D printing service bureau you would of probably bumped into the story of the 3D printed gun. This became industry news about 3 to 4 years ago and has been talked about ever since by pretty much everyone who asks about 3D printing.
We’re pleased to announce that it has been exactly a year today since we opened our doors and fired up the Stratasys 3D printers at our 3D Printing Service Bureau. Since then, with all the trials and tribulations, late nights and early mornings we’re still going strong producing a quick turn around on our quotes and 3D printing your parts using the FDM process.
Well, it’s nearly here. 3D Quick Printing will be exhibiting along with a number of other 3D printing service bureaus and companies involved in this fabulous World of Additive Manufacturing at the 3D Print Show in London starting on Thursday 21st May running to Saturday 23rd May. This exhibition is in its 4th year and is getting bigger and bigger continuing to grow and providing great exposure for 3D printing enthusiasts around London and the rest of the UK.
