XEV Start Mass Production of LSEV 3D Printed Car
The Italian company X Electrical Vehicle or XEV has stated that their 3D printed electric car, the LSEV, is ready for mass production by the end of the year. As of now, XEV’s 3D printed LSEV electric car is being showcased at the China 3D Printing Cultural Museum in Shanghai.
The car is mostly 3D printed. However, its chassis, seats, and glass are not. Also, the compact 3D printed car only weighs 450 kg. There are already around 7,000 preorders of the 3D printed vehicle.
3D Printed Star Wars Millennium Falcon
There is a 3D printed Star Wars Millennium Falcon in Thingiverse right now. User stonecoldfx printed the spacecraft in a single piece!
The size is 500 x 170 x 700 mm. The infamous spaceship weighs 3 kg. It took 10 whole days for it to be wholly 3D printed.
Carbodeon and Tiamet Creates Diamond Filament
Diamonds are now an FDM 3D printing material. Thanks to the Finnish nanodiamond manufacturer Carbodeon and Dutch 3D printing specialist Tiamet 3D, the ladies’ bestfriend can now be added to the long list of AM filaments.
Nanodiamonds are tiny diamond particles that are so small, you cannot see them. “By joining forces, we’ve already developed filaments with a 100 percent increase in tensile strength, improved printability, and better thermal properties,” said Reid Larson, CEO of Tiamet 3D. “Printing also runs more quickly and more reliably with the addition of Carbodeon polymer-tailored nanodiamonds.”
Loop Creates 3D Printed Earplugs
For people who suffer from tinnitus, the condition of hearing ringing or buzzing in your ears, you don’t have to be shy or hyper aware that you are wearing an earplug because a Belgian company created a nice looking 3D printed earplugs.
“When going out, I want to enjoy the atmosphere,” says Loop co-founder Maarten Bodewes. “Most earplugs distorted the music, were uncomfortable—not to mention downright ugly. That’s why we started Loop.”
3D Printed Building of Emerging Objects’ Cabin of Curiosities
Emerging Objects recently created a 3D printed house named “Cabin of Curiosities”. It is made up of almost 5,000 3D printed ceramic tiles.
This newly created architecture might solve the crisis that housing is facing. The designer of Cabin of Curiosities, Emerging Objects co-founder, and UC Berkeley professor Ronald Rael, said “these are not just investigations into testing materials for longevity or for structure, but also a study of aesthetics. We see the future as being elegant, optimistic, and beautiful.”
