What is 4D printing? 3D printing in time

Over the last year weve been telling you lots about 3D printing. Now at the University of Wollongong in Australia, one research group has developed a 4D printing technique.

Yes, you heard us right, printing in the fourth dimension…

Jenny got in touch with the chief scientist, Professor Marc in het Panhuis, to get answers to all the important questions:

– Whats the difference between 3D and 4D printing?

– What have they made using the 4D printing technique so far?

– What are the possibilities for the future?

Is 3D printing going to change the world?

Add Pen & Inking Capabilities to Your Windows StoreApps

Will there be any support from Microsoft for hobbyist RepRap printers (Printrbot, Mendelmax, Prusa i3, Ultimaker, Solidoodle, Makibox, etc.), or will Microsofts support be limited only to machines from proprietary vendors?

I realize a device profile would need to be made, but creating the basic skeleton for one of these (e.g. Printrbot) would make it easier for people to customize it for other RepRap printers.

In addition to our great hardware partners like 3D Systems, MakerBot, Fabbster, and TierTime, we demonstrated a Type-A Machines printing with Windows 8.1 on the showroom floor at the Build conference. Type-A Machines include a popular Arduino style electronics package running an open source Marlin firmware. The Win8.1 driver for this machine is not complete but does show that with a little effort you can take the Microsoft 3d Printing SDK and build support for any 3D printer available today.

What a wishy washy response If Microsoft gave two figs about the low end market the response should have been of course it will have full support for reprap and other popular low-end printers.

The statement about their great hardware partners says it all, they are here to take your money, not to give you what you want.

Once in a while Microsoft does something well, but these days I suspect that can be attributed to statistical chance rather than to intelligent design.

Sorry for the very grumpy tone, but I have not yet found any coffee

I am just working on an modern app that will need 3d printing in the end so this comes in handy. Thank you!

How about this I will personally assist any developer who would like to implement a Windows 8.1 3d printer driver to support the RepRap community. I will even treat them to a coffee. Learn how by watching the video and then email ask3dprintmicrosoft dot com to introduce yourself.

Great response, Kris. Native 3D printing support is a great thing and very hard to implement with or without coffee. And Microsoft has been doing wonderful things lately. Congratulations.

Great work guys. The support for 3D printers will make life soooo much easier for those using open source Marlin firmware on Arduino Compatable mainboards in their printers. At the moment there are many bits and pieces of software you need to go from 3D model to printout. Your efforts will greatly simplifiy this and are greatly appreciated.

Quick question How does the print spooler work when you send multiple print jobs to the printer The printer needs to stop and wait while you remove the printout from the print bed before the next print see youve got the same spatulascraper as us in the background.

We could use your help in developing a 3D printer driver for Airwolf 3D printers and other RepRap machines.

Well take you up on that offer. We have been developing our own RepRap printer control software, MatterControl and will be implementing the required support to integrate with Windows 8.1. We will make sure that all open source source printer from every vendor have great support on Windows going forward.

What about the rest of the eco-system the other stuff MS should implement along with the printer driver.

PS the printer driver in 8.1 appears to be hacked – at least on my machines anyways

nothing ever changes does it MS

Can you clarify which hardware manufacturers printer driver you are using that you feel is hacked

Great video of what lies ahead with 3D printing and Windows, thanks for the feature.

Can you print from Windows Surface

Yes, Steve Ballmers Build keynote included a demo of 3d printing using a Surface Pro.

It is a great news for the 3D printing community who works on Windows.

I am wondering if there would be plenty of 3D models available in Windows Store, for public users, so that they would buy, or freely download from there.

We are not currently planning to distribute 3d models through the Windows Store. It is a good idea. We are hoping to see a number of 3d printing applications published to the Windows Store that make it easy for consumers to create 3d models and print them through our work in Windows 8.1. This is a great developer opportunity and the Windows Store Hackathon winners did just that in 50 hours mpostsBuild-2013-Hackathon-Winners.

very nice looking for something quicker bresponse.

Wanting to try your hand at the latest technology, whether its augmented reality or 3-D printing? Head to a museum.

Local museums have adapted to the swift progress of technology, incorporating both established tech, such as apps and video games, and with the cutting edge, such as 3-D printing and virtual and augmented reality.

But its not just glitz and glitter. Technology is a tool, another layer on top of an exhibit, to create a more engaging, educational and individualized experience one that has become increasingly necessary as the world changes.

Museums continue to evolve in time to what is import to their audience and community, said Jodi Schoemer, director of exhibits and digital media at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science. Otherwise we would still be using a typewriter to make very wordy labels.

At DMNS, visitors can walk through the International Space Station, run with dinosaurs, place layers of muscle and skin over fossils and print out models of real fossils with the help of virtual and augmented realities and 3-D printing. The Clyfford Still Museums latest exhibit on Thursday started using augmented reality to place virtual pieces of art, such as Van Goghs The Starry Night, on the wall next to Stills pieces to compare and contrast.

In coming exhibits, the Denver Art Museum will incorporate its first video game, called Never Alone, which features Alaskan indigenous culture, while the Denver Museum of Contemporary Art plans to bring back an audio guide available through aMCA Denver app.

Although fun, museums say the use of tech is not for noveltys sake. As Clyfford Stills director, Dean Sobel, said, If we could put in an ice cream machine, we could attract other audiences. It has to work first.

Placing layers of muscles and skin on top of fossils with augmented reality creates a better understanding of how a dinosaurs body may have worked. Most physical pieces of the virtual art showing at Clyfford Still would be too difficult or expensive to acquire (and augmented reality allows the museum to skirt a prohibition on hanging work that is not Stills). Audio guides give more details about artwork and artist without clogging wall space.

Museums have been adopting technology over the past decades and theyll continue to do that in order to drive traffic, said Jitesh Ubrani, a senior research analyst for International Data Corporation. VR (and AR) is just going to be the next step in that case.

He said more and more museums have been adopting virtual and augmented reality. Although its not just them. Theme parks, movie theaters and tourist attractions have hopped on it, too.

Schoemer said museums are following the trends in the market, which are moving toward more individualized and customized experiences. As such, visitors will begin to expect more personalization from their museum experiences.

For example, museums may in the future use voice and facial recognition, as well as proximity activation, to adjust an exhibit so it targets the viewer, whether thats a child, an adult or a mix of both.

But adding new technology can be difficult. Schoemer said virtual and augmented realities became affordable for non-profit museums in 2015 but it took time and money to develop content that is high resolution and scientifically accurate. Oh, and affordability doesnt mean cheap, she added.

MCA spokesman Clayton Kenney said the museum added the audio guide in February 2016 but people were slower on the uptake than expected. The museum put it on pause for the latest exhibit, which is bilingual, because creating an audio guide in two languages was too expensive and time intensive for the museums small team.

But the feedback for technologies deployed at Denver museums has been positive. The number one response from people stepping off the virtual International Space Station is that they wanted a longer experience. MCA visitors who used the audio guides said they enjoyed it, inspiring the museum to bring it back for the next exhibit in February but this time stepping up signage and offering devices to check out to help increase use.

Its not just visitors who appear to appreciate museums stepping into the high-tech world.

Going into other fields museums, medical, military or any number of situation you can do it gives (virtual and augmented reality) staying power because it wont get stuck in that (gaming) niche, said Sean Brown, department chair of animation and gaming at the Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design.

The relationship goes both ways. Museums enter virtual reality to show off exhibits while virtual reality apps enter museums so people can walk through them from their homes, Brown said.

Microsoft is determined to make virtual reality work for everyone

This app tells you when youre depressed. Who else does it tell?

Similarly, an app called Cuseum was developed to help museums offer a modern experience through wayfinding and audio guides. Its used by MCA and DAM, among others.

But with the addition of technology, museums naturally have differing opinions on what works best and what doesnt.

Sobel said augmented art pieces near or are equal to the quality of the physical piece. But he is not a fan of audio guides, feeling they can distract from the art itself.

On the other hand, Kenney said audio guides help people learn about the art without overwhelming them with labels. Engaging with the muse on the walls is why you come to the museum, whereas a virtual piece would not offer that level of engagement, he said.

But one major benefit of technology all museums agree on: You dont have to use it. Visitors can opt out in favor of a traditional museum experience that wont be supplanted by augmented reality or 3-D printing. Additionally, virtual reality will not become ubiquitous, consuming all exhibits, Schoemer said.

I dont think theres really a substitute for seeing the real thing, for touching the real thing, she said. But sometimes the technology is used to augment the way people engage.

TheEaston Public Marketis proving that technology can be pretty sweet.

On Thursday,Chocodiem, the markets resident high-end chocolatier, introduced a new 3D chocolate printer that creates customized goodies in minutes.

The roughly $3,700 device spits out melted milk, dark, white or vegan chocolate onto parchment paper in any design, guided by modeling software. A simple, flat creation might take just a few seconds to print, while complex 3D models can take up to 45 minutes.

Chocodiem, named last year one of North Americas10 best chocolatiers, collaborated with the Easton-based scanning and printing shop3DReactionson the project.

The partnership began when Chocodiem owner (and Belgian native) JP Hepp sought someone to help him make chocolate models ofthe Centre Square buglerforHeritage Day.

The two companies linked up and together purchased the machine, which will spend time at both the Easton Public Market and Chocodiems original location in Clinton, New Jersey. 3DReactions owner John Majersky programs the software and handles the technical side, while Hepp provides the chocolate.

The team has printed inch-high flower-like designs, along with 2D creations like the outline of the bugler, company logos and a variety of simple messages.

If you want your own printed chocolate, a 2D phrase like Thank You or I Love You start at $10. 3D prints will start at $20, and vary based on the size, customization and complexity. For added customization, Chocodiem is already well-versed in chocolate painting.

Hepp is planning to host public demonstrations for anyone who wants to see the 3D printer in action. To make an appointment or place an order, call orchocodiem.com.

Precise temperature and humidity are required to keep the 3D-printed chocolates stable. Ideally, Majersky said, the room will be 66 to 70 degrees with 40 percent humidity as the chocolate is printed. Any hotter than that, and the result will melt in the process. (The appropriate temperature varies a bit based on the type of chocolate.)

Megan McBride, the district director for the Easton Public Market, said she was excited to see a vendor collaborating with an Easton business outside of the market. She sees the 3D printer as further evidence of Hepps reputation as an innovator.

He never disappoints, she said. Hes always on to the next thing.
