Today Microsoft released an updated version of its 3D Builder Windows Store app, now enhanced with more features, a better user experience, and expanded 3D printing capability via a new partnership with 3DS and our Cubify cloud printing services. By integrating with our Cubify cloud printing service, Microsoft’s 3D Builder R5 gives you access to expanded material options beyond what is typically offered by consumer 3D printers. Materials range from opaque and frosted plastics, to metallic and mixed plastics, to full-color “Colorstone” and even ceramics. From the designing process, users are directly and seamlessly linked to Cubify where they can order their design to be shipped to their doorstep within 2 weeks.

Beyond the added ease and access of cloud printing, 3D Builder R5 has totally overhauled and optimized its main control, expanded its edit mode and added a new selection control that lets you easily manage the selection state of multiple parts on the virtual build platform. The new design cleanly incorporates the many features that have been added to the app during its last several releases and has additionally made moving, scaling and rotating models more precise and intuitive.

In this version of the app, 3D Builder’s built-in library of parts has also gained a new category of trophy 3D models that can be customized and personalized using multiple parts to be scaled up or down depending on their intended application.

The new Buy Print button in 3D Builder R5 is integrated with 3D Systems’ Cubify service

You can get more information and install 3D Builder R5 by visiting the official 3D Builder app store page.

Advanced Aerials removes the mystery from Unmanned Vehicle System development with an assist from Quickparts

In an industry typically shut off by red “Top Secret” stamps and closed-door meetings, Advanced Aerials is doing things a little differently. They’ve put a welcome mat on their door in an effort to not only supply Unmanned Vehicle Systems (UVS) but to perfect their designs and innovate through open-source collaboration. Think of Advanced Aerials’ work as the launching point for creating affordable UVS designs that fulfill the exact requirements of users from military intelligence units to first responders

HOLLYWOOD, CA -- This past weekend, 3D Systems joined in at the Geekie Awards®, the second annual award show by geeks for geeks™. The Geekie Awards recognizes a slew of talents, from programming and gaming, to podcasts, cosplay and tabletop games. The show was launched in 2013 as a platform to give geek culture its moment in the sun and highlight the creativity, innovation and passion that are poured into the genres that comprise the geek world.

Having witnessed geek creativity firsthand and worked with many of the people for whom 3D modeling, 3D printing, and 3D scanning inspire and fuel their passions, 3D Systems proudly supported the show. In addition to sponsorship, we were excited to 3D print the aqua blue Geekie stun-gun trophy through our Quickparts service and bring busily whirring Cube 3D printers and 3D scanners to demo at the event.

The widespread interest in entertainment, gaming, comics, art and fashion at the Geekie Awards amplified the potential of these technologies. In addition to being fascinated by the steadily building printers and instant physical photography, show-goers excitedly turned over the personal applications that could make 3D printing work for them.

What about you? How could 3D printing enhance your interests? Click here to pull inspiration from the masters at the Geekie Awards. It’s never been a better time to be a geek!

3D Systems Announces Latest Webinar on Direct Metal Printing

ROCK HILL, South Carolina, July 17, 2014 3D Systems (NYSE:DDD) announced today a new webinar titled:

After spending a record 31 days living 63 feet below the waves of the Atlantic Ocean, Fabien Cousteau finally surfaced on July 2, 2014. During the aptly named “Mission 31,” Fabien Cousteau, grandson of renowned ocean explorer Jacques Cousteau, led a rotating team of scientists, documentarians, and activists to their temporary home, Aquarius, in a joint effort to deepen our understanding of marine life and the effects of pollution and climate change. (Image left courtesy of 360 Heros.)

Among the filming expedition was Jonathan Woods from TIME Magazine, who spent a day diving with researchers. To document every angle and facet of Aquarius and Cousteau’s research, Woods used 360 Heros scuba gear, a specially designed and 3D printed camera mount for 6 GoPro cameras. The rig generates fully spherical HD video, allowing Woods to create an interactive 360˚ tour of the aquatic research facility.

Mission 31 was a success in part due to its astounding duration, but more importantly because of the vast quantity of data that was collected during the expedition. The time saved from avoiding back and forth trips to the surface and having a continuous supply of oxygen allowed researchers to collect the equivalent of approximately two years’ worth of information in one month underwater.
