Top 5 Videos: Resin 3D Printing Technologies
It’s Sunday again, so get ready for our new list of top 5 videos about 3D printing! This week, we’re giving you new insight into the methods in 3D printing with our new Ex[planned video! After that, you’ll hear a heartwarming story of a student who 3D printed a lunch tray for special needs kids. Then, you’ll find out more about 3D printed steaks and after that, you’ll be introduced to Nexa 3D’s latest 3D printer. Last not but least, we’ll show you another nice and heartwarming story, this time about a teen who made a 3D-printed custom prosthetic hand for a 6-year-old in need in the Philippines. In any case, we wish you all a perfect Sunday!
Top1: Resin 3D Printing Technologies:
SLA, DLP, MSLA: what are the differences between all these resin 3D printing processes? In our new 3D Explained video, we go over the basics of these methods, their characteristics, common points, and the possibilities they offer. In less than 3 minutes, you’ll become an expert on these 3D printing technologies, which are becoming increasingly popular in the industry.
Top 2: A 3D Printed Lunch Tray
Adaline Hamlin is a 15-year-old student at Pope Prep High School in Hendersonville, Tennessee, who had a great idea about how to help others with special needs. After seeing another student spill her lunch on the floor, she got inspired to create a new lunch tray that can help people like her. She then turned to the school’s 3D printing club for help, and the team was then able to create trays from her design, which are now available at the school. Her inspiring initiative stands as a great example of how 3D printing can be used to help others.
Top 3: 3D Printed Meat
Eating real meat without feeling bad for animals dying for it? What sounds like a dream is, indeed, possible. By creating real meat from animal cells rather than farmed animals, the company Meatech claims that with its process of 3D printing meat, no animals are being killed in order to enjoy a tasty steak. In the following video, you’ll get a quick look at how that meat is created.
Top 4: The XiP 3D Printer
Nexa3D is a US-based 3D printer manufacturer that specializes in SLA machines. After having already produced quite a few industrial 3D printers, the company unveiled its first desktop 3D printer last year. Called XiP, the machine is a resin 3D printer with a printing volume of 190 x 120 x 170 mm. It is equipped with a monochrome LCD screen with 4K resolution and has a printing speed of up to 18 cm per hour! Designed to meet the needs of several industries, such as medical, engineering, or education, the XiP is intended to offer flexibility and a high production rate to its users.
Top 5: 3D Printed Custom Prosthetic Hand
To end this week’s top 5, we show you another heartwarming story involving 3D printing. Isabella Balikian, a 16- year old student from Pacific Ridge School in Carlsbad, California, used the school’s 3D printer to create a prosthetic arm for a 6-year-old girl in the Philipines. When Isabella was searching for a way to connect her passion for science with the 3D printing opportunities, she found out about the girl in need on an online portal. In the video below, Isabella talks about the project and shows what can be done with 3D printing to help others.
