Innovative 3D Food Printers http://www.mymodernmet.com/profiles/blogs/3d-systems-3d-food-printers Innovative 3D Food Printers Create Edible Geometric Forms
Liz von Hasseln, 3D Systems' Creative Director Food Products explains, “The machine uses an ink jet print head that's just like the one you would find in your desktop 2D printer.
It spreads a very fine layer of sugar then paints water onto the surface of the sugar, and that water allows the sugar to recrystalize and harden to form these complex geometries." With a variety of exciting shapes and colors, the fun little treats will add a little flair to any kitchen.
Available in the second half of 2014, the Chefjet 3D will average a little less than $5,000 while the Chefjet Pro will average a little less than $10,000.

Napster For Pirated 3D Printing Templates? http://techcrunch.com/2013/05/04/3d-printing-piracy-physibles/ Napster For Pirated 3D Printing Templates?
Buy it in a store, laser-scan it at home, upload it to the web, print it anywhere. 3D printing is poised for the mainstream, but what happens when one person’s finely hand-crafted designs can be pirated and reproduced by anyone?
Will 3D-printing-piracy social networks arise? And how will manufacturers lobby to stop them?

3D Printer for Hydrogels https://seelio.com/w/4jr/3d-printer-for-hydrogels 3D Printer for Hydrogels
Professor Allen Liu of the Mechanical Engineering department and Professor Ariella Shikanov of the Biomedical Engineering department approached us to design and build a 3D printer to improve tissue engineering research which aims to develop fully functional organs.
Successful tissue growth strongly depends on fast revascularization. This 3D printer will print a sacrificial structure as the framework for interconnected vascular networks that will be incorporated into cell-encapsulating hydrogel matrices.

The Cube 3D Printer http://hiconsumption.com/2013/02/cube-3d-home-printer/ The Cube 3D Printer
The Cube 3D Printer will set you back about $1,300 if you pre-order now from their online store. "3D printers have become all the rage over the last few months, so you can expect companies to allocate plenty of resources to developing a practical 3D home printing device. The problem thus far has been making these things at an affordable price, but things are definitely looking better with the Cube.
The concept is simple. The lightweight, 8.5 pounds, printer will allow you to print literally anything you want with the help of print software of course. "

3D Printer May Someday Build Human Organs http://mashable.com/2013/02/06/3d-printed-stem-cell-organs/ 3D Printer May Someday Build Human Organs A team of researchers at Heriot-Watt University in Scotland, led by Will Shu, has built a printer that can lay down human stem cells in tiny spheres. Printing human cells has been done before, with bone marrow or skin. Those types of cells, however, are resilient compared to the more delicate embryonic stem cells.
Low-Cost 3D Printer a Hit on Kickstarter http://mashable.com/2012/12/31/robo-3d-printer/ Downloadable sneakers may become reality sooner than later, but for now one of the main barriers stopping 3D printers from gaining widespread appeal is the massive price tag.
The RoBo aims to change that, however -- and if early reaction on Kickstarter is any indication, this 3D printer could become a massive hit with consumers.

In an effort to boldly 3D print where no man or woman has 3D printed before, I've created a technique for converting digital audio files into 3D-printable, 33rpm records and printed a few functional prototypes. These records play on ordinary turntables with regular needles, just like any vinyl record.

3D Printing on Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/3D_printing 3D Printing on Wikipedia
"Additive manufacturing or 3D printing is a process of making three dimensional solid objects from a digital model.
3D printing is achieved using additive processes, where an object is created by laying down successive layers of material.
3D printing is considered distinct from traditional machining techniques (subtractive processes) which mostly rely on the removal of material by drilling, cutting etc.
3D printing is usually performed by a materials printer using digital technology.
Since the start of the twenty-first century there has been a large growth in the sales of these machines, and their price dropped substantially.
The technology is used in the fields of jewellery, footwear, industrial design, architecture, engineering and construction (AEC), automotive, aerospace, dental and medical industries, education, geographic information systems, civil engineering, and many others."
