It’s Sunday again and you know what that means! Our team has picked the top 5 3D printing videos of the week, giving you a quick look at what’s new and exciting in the world of 3D printing. Today’s list begins with an important hot topic: how 3D printing is helping the Ukrainian military in the current war in Ukraine. Then follow up with an interesting look at an art collection featuring 3D printed objects, before the listing takes you from a 3D printed house for rent to AM in race cars. Finally, we conclude our top 5 with an overview of the use of 3D printing in the dental industry. Don’t forget to tell us which video you liked the most and have a nice Sunday!
Top 1: How 3D printing helps the Ukrainian army in wartime
ICE, a technology company based in the Czech Republic, recently announced that it will help the Ukrainian army by supplying concrete 3D printers. The purpose of these machines is to print concrete barriers to protect the Ukrainian people from attacks by Russian attackers. The 3D-printed barriers are capable of serving as strong protection against small-arms firearms and grenades, as shown by conduction tests in ballistic labs. After the war, 3D printers will help rebuild destroyed buildings and infrastructure in cities that were exposed to war.
Top 2: CRAFT 3.0, the futuristic exhibition of 3D printed art
For the Luxembourg art exhibition CRAFT 3.0, various craftsmen, creators, designers and digital specialists have come together to explore how ancient traditional art can be complemented by the use of modern and digital techniques. Under the name of “De Mains De Maîtres”, the idea of this coalition of different specialists from Luxembourg and other European countries is to examine more closely the interest there may be in the future in bringing together and to combine old and new skills. . The results of this gathering are presented at the CRAFT 3.0 show!
Top 3: The Fibonacci house printed in 3D
