In Pictures: 18 supercool objects made with 3D printers
3D printers are being used to create some amazing things, many of which were on display at last week's Inside 3D Printing Conference and Expo in San Jose. Here are 18 3D printed items that really stood out.
3D printed superhero
Solid Concepts used 3D printing to build ZoomR, a six-foot, four-inch superhero mascot for ZoomRP.com. First, an image of the superhero costume was created using a proprietary laser scanner. Then ZoomR was printed in multiple parts and assembled and painted in less than two weeks. ZoomR’s outer shell is just 0.030-in. to 0.040-in. thick.
