Formation of 3d carbon microstructures via microfabrication
A team of Japanese scientists created a tiny rabbit sculpture, the size of a typical bacterium, using a new 3D printing material, a new type of resin which can be molded into complex, highly conductive 3D structures. Potential applications of the new photopolymers include 3D carbon electrodes for fuel cells or batteries and interfaces for biosensors.

Synthesizing DNA strands 10,000 times cheaper with a DNA laser 3d printer
It sounds like science fiction but is real: San Francisco-based startup Cambrian Genomics is creating the world's first DNA laser printer. Synthetic biology has the potential to create new organisms that could do an infinite number of things. But the cost of synthesizing DNA is currently prohibitively expensive.

Prehistoric artwork on Stonehenge rocks revealed by 3d scanning tools
The UK’s York Archaeological Trust was recently commissioned to use contemporary technology to spatially and digitally record England’s historic Stonehenge. After the team used 3D scanning to gather more than 850 gigabytes of data—shot at 0.5 millimeter point spacing on the entire structure—they needed a way to organize the enormous data pool. It was the process of making the data useful that led to the discovery of prehistoric artwork carved into the stones.

Freeform printing, 3D printing without limitations
3D printers come with gantries. Put the printer on a robotic arm instead and dream of exciting new ways to print without limiting support material or limiting axes. Neri Oxman, architect and founder of the Mediated Matter Group, already thought of it. She and her group planned to 3D print a 3m-high pavilion by “freeform” printing.

4D Printing: transform shapes with multi-Material 3D printing
Skylar Tibbits, an architect, designer and computer scientist recently presented a new concept at TED 2013: 4D printing. Skylar Tibbits' research focuses on developing self-assembly technologies for large-scale structures in the physical environment. In a collaboration between Stratasys’ Education, R&D departments and MIT’s Self-Assembly Lab, a new process is being developed. Skylar Tibbits calls it 4D printing

NIKE debuts first-ever 3D Printed football cleat
The quest for acceleration and speed has long been the north star for athletes across sport, and in order to excel in the game of football, the mastery of these skills is seen in the 40-yard dash. Played out on a national stage in Indianapolis, pro scouts clock 40-yard dash times in order to assess and translate these measurements to a football athlete’s game-time ability.

Recreating a 3,300 years old ancient statue using 3D printers
3,300 years ago when Assyrians attacked the ancient city of Nuzi in modern-day Iraq they smashed temples and destroyed artifact. They had no idea that 3,300 years later archaeologists are able undo some of the damage using 3D printing technology.

3D print a chair, piece by piece
3D printing technology is becoming cheaper and simpler to use. It has been used in wide applications, but still, one of the remaining obstacles is that the object to be printed must fit into the working volume of the 3D printer. Existing commercial systems rely on manual partitioning, but this can be tedious if many parts are needed.
