Joseph DeSimone: What if 3D Printing was 100x Faster?

Filmed March 2015

What we think of as 3D printing, says Joseph DeSimone, is really just 2D printing over and over ... slowly. Onstage at TED2015, he unveils a bold new technique — inspired, yes, by Terminator 2 — that's 25 to 100 times faster, and creates smooth, strong parts. Could it finally help to fulfill the tremendous promise of 3D printing? Terms of Use

Amazing Items Made with 3D Printers

Published on Mar 3, 2015

Mind blowing creations from 3 dimensional printed objects.


Ever since Johannes Gutenberg invented the printing press around 1439, we have been obsessed with creating the perfect printer to preserve and put our ideas on paper. The printing press was probably one of the most innovative and life-changing inventions as it made literacy more accessible. No longer did people have to write and transcribe thousands of pages, one at a time. But instead, books like the Bible could be mass produced at a quick pace. Over the hundreds of years since Gutenberg’s invention, the printer has evolved into devices like the typewriter and the laser jet printer. But today, in the 21st century, the printer has taken a dramatic turn that will change our society just as much as Gutenberg’s printing press changed his society: the 3D printer. This isn’t science fiction, this is the real deal, and it’s coming to a home or business near you.

The 3D printer is a technological breakthrough that involves a computer communicating with the printer to create layers as it “prints” a 3D creation from the computer. Layer upon layer is laid down as the object comes to life. Stemming back to the 1980’s, the 3D printer has gone through many trials, tests, and breakthroughs, and they are now becoming available to the regular household market. Today, you can do more than make a 3D printing of that flower you designed on your computer. People have started to print functional guns, cars, and houses. All it takes is some patience and intricate design. This can be both good and a bad thing, especially since guns can now become available to nearly anyone who can print them at home.

In Japan, 3D printers have become available on the streets where people can have 48 cameras take a photo of them, and then create a little 3D figurine of themselves. It’s quite an interesting device and people can create 3D figures of celebrities, animals, objects, and more. 3D printing can even create food, and nursing homes are taking advantage of it because they can create softer foods that look like real food. The 3D printing world has also made a huge impact in the medical field, as custom prosthetics can be printed as well as other body parts like bones. This will be able to cut the cost of manufacturing prosthetics and can make body parts more accessible to the disabled. Speaking of the medical field, just like how food can be printed, doctors are also experimenting with the printing of medications. Pretty soon, you won’t need to stand in long lines at the pharmacy and you can print your medications instead.

Believe it or not, this is just the beginning of the 3D printing world, and it doesn’t show any signs of slowing down. Just like how the internet slowly crept into our lives, this amazing type of technology will likely be in every household in the next decade. It truly is looking like our lives will be something out of a science fiction film or comic.

The World's Smallest 3D Printer

Uploaded on Nov 11, 2011

Klaus Stadlmann majored 2008 in industrial engineering at the TU Vienna. His degree thesis: "the development of an orthosis used in the supporting and measuring of a torque path of the ankle during rehabilitation" received special honors. At the moment he is finishing his pre-doc in technical sciences at Vienna's Technical University's Institute of Material Sciences and Technologies. Under the supervision of Prof. Stampfl he is involved in a working group concerned with the manufacturing of optical fibers.

Anthony Atala: Printing a Human Kidney

Filmed March 2011

Surgeon Anthony Atala demonstrates an early-stage experiment that could someday solve the organ-donor problem: a 3D printer that uses living cells to output a transplantable kidney. Using similar technology, Dr. Atala's young patient Luke Massella received an engineered bladder 10 years ago; we meet him onstage. Terms of Use

David Sengeh: The Sore Problem of Prosthetic Limbs

Filmed March 2014

What drove David Sengeh to create a more comfortable prosthetic limb? He grew up in Sierra Leone, and too many of the people he loves are missing limbs after the brutal civil war there. When he noticed that people who had prosthetics weren’t actually wearing them, the TED Fellow set out to discover why — and to solve the problem with his team from the MIT Media Lab. Terms of Use

The Cube 3 is a Cute 3D Printer to say the Least

Published on Feb 5, 2015

Read the 3D Systems Cube 3 review. CNET editor Dong Ngo likes the compact and well-designed Cube 3 3D printer from 3D Systems quite a bit, but for a reason that has nothing to do with 3D printing.
