CreoPop is a one of a kind photopolymer 3D Printing Pen that utilizes cool inks. Cool ink pens utilize photopolymer resins that get cured (hardened) when exposed to ultraviolet light (U.V. light). The hardening of a photopolymer happens when cross-linking is triggered by light exposure, which is a chemical property of photo resins.
Since the proliferation of 3D printing the price of fabrication has significantly gone done to the raw material and initial 3D printer cost. Nonetheless there are still plenty of wasted resources when it comes to 3D printing, such as failed prints and when printing several iterations of one design. Costing makers money.
When searching for an affordable, reliable, and quality built 3D printer to buy nothing comes to mind other than FlashForge. The company had first entered the 3D printing space in 2011 and has since then, produced award winning 3D printers such as the FlashForge Creator. What truly separates them from the competition is their ability to consistently bring great printers at a price point that brings consumers a great value deal.
The 3D printer market has been growing at an ever-increasing rate, with no sign’s of slowing down. 3D printer companies have been popping up over night filling different market segments in the ever-expanding 3D printer space. Many 3D printer companies offer intuitive, feature rich, and well built 3D printers, take for example, MakerBot Industries 3D printers, but when it comes to multi-material printers very few companies offer multi-material capable 3D printers and tend to have a steep learning curve.
In the world of 3D printing no name is more synonymous with 3D printing then Makerbot Industries. Makerbot Industries has captivated the 3D printer community with its rich in feature 3D printers and online Thingiverse community. The company was formed in Brooklyn, New York and started shipping kits in April 2009. In June 19th 2013 Stratasys Incorporated acquired Makerbot Industries in a stock deal worth $403 million.
Every year 3D Printing revolutionizes the world more and more, enabling makers to have the option of creating custom designs, prototypes, and even end-pieces. The potential of this technology is still growing and evolving, revolutionizing the way industries develop their ideas and manufacture. 3D Printing has extended its reach into the confectionary world providing us with the first gummy candy 3D printer, The Magic Candy Factory.
The best aspect of 3d printing is its versatility, giving users a new approach in creating complex geometric designs, custom tools, and products.
The Choc Creator Chocolate 3D Printer is available for purchase. The mini chocolate factory is an affordable desktop 3D chocolate printer that gives users the ability to print 2D, 2.5D, and 3D chocolate creations.
For centuries Italy has been on the pioneering end of architecture, design, and innovation, a prime example that withstood the test of time is no other then the Roman Colosseum. Italy’s latest contribution to the world, Sharebot, a 3D printer company pioneering various 3D printing technologies such as fused filament fabrication (FFF) and countless other 3D printer technologies.
With the rise of the 3D printing market so does the rise of waste generated by 3d printing grows. Examples of waste generated by a 3D printer are failed prints, print supports, and rafts. Now on a small scale a few wasted grams of filament doesn’t seem so bad, but what if you have a “MakerLab” that generates a lot more then a few grams.
