Want an easy way to create your own custom 3D printed dildos? Thanks to the Dildo Generator, you can now create the dildo of the dreams in your web browser. You can adjust the bezier curves to your liking, and the script then revolves the shape to create your very own orifice buster. Sure, you could easily do the same thing in any 3D modeling program, but in a pinch, the Dildo Generator will help you create a 3D file in a jiffy that you can then use in your Makerbot or what have you.
They’re (mostly manly) rings inspired by old weird fiction, horror and scifi.
Thank you very much,
With the next batch of astronauts going up to the ISS will also go the space station’s first espresso machine, but the space lounge in the sky is also getting another, cooler, more useful piece of technology— a 3D printer. As you can imagine, if you can get 3D printing working well in microgravity, it makes space station maintenance and upgrading far easier and cheaper. Some doo-dad that breaks and astronauts have to make do until a replacement part can be hand delivered from Earth? Or you could just print a replacement.
The cast you see above might be the future of fixing broken bones. Instead of simply holding the limb stable while the bone heals, it also uses the magic of ultrasound to prompt the growth of new bone, drastically reducing the healing time. Plus, it’s 3D printed, which makes it cheap, and the lattice design is not only strong, it prevents that nasty plaster cast stink.
There are 3D printers for plastics and for food, and now a Chinese company has started 3D printing houses, using concrete and building debris, building things up layer by layer. Without much labor, the cost of each small house comes in around $5000. In 1908, Thomas Edison envisioned a future where entire houses could be poured into a mold on the cheap, and now with 3D printing, that could become a reality.
In an update to Photoshop CC last week, Adobe updated Photoshop’s 3D tools to add support for exporting 3D models. Photoshop has had rudimentary 3D model support for a while, and this update doesn’t make Photoshop a primary 3D modeling tool, but you’ll be able to add Photoshop to your workflow— as in you make your 3D model, bring it into PS for touch-up and finalization and then export it in a format either to send off to Shapeways or to print on a Makerbot printer.
With 3D printing becoming cheaper and more accessible all the time, there could come a point, according to Mark Fabes, McDonald’s IT director, that when you or your kid orders a Happy Meal, the toy will be printed right there in the store on a 3D printer. He’s not saying that this is something McDonald’s is actively pursuing right now, but it doesn’t sound too far fetched.
