Over the past few years we have featured a number of different 3D printing devices and solutions which have made it to market, together with crowd funding concepts which have been designed to make 3D printing more accessible to small businesses and families.
Now researchers at the University of Southern California have taken the 3D printer to a new level and have created an awesome 6 axis 3D printer that is capable of printing onto curved surfaces with ease.
Check out the two-minute video below the researchers have created to demonstrate functionality and abilities of their new 3D printer, demonstrating how it can print onto the curved surface of a bottle.
Unfortunately as you can see in the video the complexity of the new 6 axis 3D printer has increased dramatically and with it has increased the costs of production, making it currently uneconomic for small businesses or the home environment at the current time.
However only a few years ago the realm of 3 axis 3D printers was thought to be unavailable to the home market, but as we’ve seen in recent months the price of 3D printers has dropped dramatically and is now making the new 3D market available for families to enjoy.Filed Under: Concepts & Design, Technology News, Top News
