Global 3D Scanners Giving a Huge Blow to the Consumer Market

3D scanner is an instrument which examines the real objects and environment, to collect data based on shape, geometry, and appearance. The collected data is then used to construct digital 3D replicas. 3D scanners are classified into two groups’ viz., non-contact scanning and contact scanning. Let’s see what has happened earlier in the 3D Printing world.   Twindom launched an ... Read More »

NASA launches 3D printer into space in 2014

NASA

NASA is preparing to launch a 3D printer, which would serves as a flying factory of infinite designs, into space next year, a toaster-sized game changer that greatly reduces the need for astronauts to load up with every tool. In NASA labs, engineers are 3D printing small satellites that could shoot out of the Space Station and transmit data to ... Read More »
