London based architecture collective Softkill Design claim their design will take 3 weeks to print, and can be assembled in just one day.

“It will hopefully be the first actual 3D printed house on site,” said Gilles Retsin of Softkill Design. “We are hoping to have the first prototype out in the summer.” Continue reading “The Race to 3D Print a House” »

3D Printing on The Big Bang Theory February 5th, 2013

3D printing has been entering the mainstream of late, and what better way to publicise the technology to the masses than to feature it on a hit TV show?

If you’ve not seen The Big Bang Theory (that’s no small feat when it’s repeated on E4 constantly) it revolves around the comedy goings-on of four nerdy scientist type guys, so 3D printing is a subject that is not so surprising to see crop up in the plot.

The story in this particular episode was that two of the main characters, Howard and Raj, were disappointed with the (un)likeness of action figures they’d paid $500 for to look like them. The solution proposed was to invest in a 3D printer so they could make figures that looked exactly like them.

After buying a used machine for $5000 (much to Howard’s wife’s annoyance) Howard uses an Xbox kinect to scan Raj into digital form.

I’ve not seen the episode myself, but have read parts sounded a tad like a 3D printing promo, not necessarily a bad thing. One of Howard’s lines offered a valid point – “Do you realize by owning a 3D printer we are reclaiming the manufacturing process, and taking jobs back from sweatshops in China?”

Looks like the secret is definitely out on 3D printing!
