7 Industries In 2019 That Are Currently Being Disrupted By 3D Printing

7 Industries In 2019 That Are Currently Being Disrupted By 3D Printing

You have probably spent the past couple weeks learning all about the cool things that you can 3D print at home and what 3D printers you should be using. However, you are not the only person looking to get into additive manufacturing. From gaming companies to the medical field, 3D printing has spread its web of innovation, revolutionizing the way people design, prototype, and build products. Though just about any industry can use 3D printing, there are industries that are sure to gain the most. [Interesting Engineering]

The Possibilities Of Pigmented Concrete: 18 Buildings Infused With Color

The Possibilities Of Pigmented Concrete: 18 Buildings Infused With Color

When we think of concrete, the color gray generally comes to mind. The traditional mixture of concrete, which comprises cement, gravel, sand, and water may vary in color depending on elements and admixtures but naturally varies from light to dark gray. However, compounds that add pigment to the mixture are becoming increasingly prevalent and popular, as they infuse the concrete with hues more stable than paint. [Arch Daily]

Robot Science Museum In Seoul Will Be Built By Robots And Dones

Robot Science Museum In Seoul Will Be Built By Robots And Dones

Melike Altınışık Architects has unveiled plans for a Robot Science Museum in Seoul, which will be built using robotic construction techniques and drones. Robots will be used to construct the curving metal facade of the building in the South Korean capital, which the Seoul Metropolitan Government has commissioned to educate the public about robots. Parts of the structure will be moulded, welded, assembled and polished by robots. Robots will also be used to 3D-print the concrete landscaping around the museum. Drones will be used for mapping, site inspections and to control robotic construction vehicles. [Dezeen]

Relive The Dot Matrix Glory Days With Your 3D Printer

Relive The Dot Matrix Glory Days With Your 3D Printer

With the cost of 3D printers dropping rapidly, we’ve started to see a trend of hackers re-purposing them for various tasks. It makes perfect sense; with the hotend and extruder turned off (or removed entirely), you’ve got a machine that can move a tool around in two or three dimensions with exceptional accuracy. Printers modified to carry lasers, markers, and even the occasional rotary tool, are becoming a common sight in our tip line. [Hackaday]
