On Tuesday, May 6th from 3-6pm, we at Type A Machines will be participating in SFMade Week! This free event, scheduled to happen two weeks from today, will be an open house of our office space in TechShop SF.
The newest effort to aid cancer research involves 3D printing technologies to create a three-dimensional model of cancerous tumors. These models will then be used by researchers to study cancer, as well as potential treatments.
At Type A Machines we are committed to innovation – not just for our new printers, but for our legacy products as well. All Series 1 3D printers have been designed with modularity in mind, which means easy hacking and easy upkeep. Today we are pleased to announce: easy upgrades!
The Glass Print Plate ($79.95) and Pinchwheel ($29.95) upgrades are compatible with the 2012-2013 plywood models of our Series 1.
A chronic bone disorder caused a woman’s skull to increase in thickness, giving her severe headaches and reduced eyesight. To fix the problem, neurosurgeons have removed the top half of her skull and replaced it with an implant that’s 3D-printed.
Attention 2013 Series 1 owners! Are you wondering what materials exactly go into the manufacturing and assembly of your 3D printer? Even if you don’t own the 2013 Series 1 model, it’d still be cool to know what materials it uses, right?
Well, fear not, for we’ve now published the machine’s Bill of Materials!
A penguin at the Warsaw Zoo in Poland damaged his beak earlier this month, and though the keepers don’t know how exactly it happened, the bird will be getting a new prosthetic beak created with 3D printing technologies.
We’re back at the California Academy of Sciences this Thursday, March 27th for an exciting night with.. Robots!
It’s a robot world—we’re just living in it. This week, you are invited to meet robots of all sizes, shapes and functions – some of which 3D printed on our Series 1.
