"Kubo and the Two Strings", a 3D Printed 3D Movie
"Kubo and the Two Strings" is scheduled to be released in US theaters on August 19, 2016 in 2D and stereoscopic 3D formats. The stop-motion film is set in a mythological version of Japan, and is essentially conjoining Western and Eastern themes into a heart-warming and colorfully animated journey. Ultimately, Kubo and The Two Strings also mends together the traditional form of stop-motion film and new innovative techniques that have been enabled in part thanks to 3D printing technology.

3D Printed 80 Cannons Warship is Stunning
It all started when the en-designshop team (The Netherlands) received a client request for what turned out to be quite an undertaking. Asked if they could recreate the Seven Provinces, a 17th century warship anchored in the Rotterdam harbor, the team immediately began consulting with Materialise (Belgium). Over 150 feet long and 40 feet wide, the Dutch warship was armed with a formidable 80 guns. While making history of their own with this 3D printed replica, the two teams worked together steadily in preparing for printing. Watch the amazing video here under!

3D Organ Printing is No Longer Science-fiction
3D organ printing is a concept that's been studied around the world since the mid 2000's. Binghamton University (NY, USA) researchers are now also contributing to the progress in this field. The program at BU about two years ago, and the University is now leading the way in a critical aspect of 3D organ printing by creating cell vasculature -- or circulatory systems.
Kyle Reeser, a PhD student in biomedical engineering, demonstrates a 3-D tissue printer created at Binghamton University.
Chameleon Let You 3D Print in Colors
The Chameleon 3D Printer coloring kit campaign is launched on Kickstarter.
Chameleon is a simple to use filament coloring system that works WHILE you are printing. Chameleon colorizes on the fly, to change colors, simply change the ink cartridge to the color you want and its done.
