To the moon and beyond!

NASA is wanting to get to Mars and they need the publics’ help. They recently launched their latest Centennial Challenge and the goal this year is devise a way to construct a habitable structure on the planet Mars using 3D-printed material. $2 million in prize money is up for grabs so there will be no shortage of contestants. This is the 3rd phase of an on-going contest with previous years...

Graphene in 3D Printing: Ten Times the Strength of Steel and Only a Fraction of the Weight

Researchers at MIT were able to use a high resolution multi-color 3D printer and take graphene, an elemental carbon made of one flat sheet of atoms that are arranged in a repeating hexagonal lattice, and create geometry incredibly strong—ten times the strength of steel but only a fraction of the weight. The material is electrically conductive and can be nearly transparent.

Tethon 3D Ceramic Resins for Use in SLA and DLP 3D Printers

The days of 3D printing solely with plastics are far behind us. Not only can 3D printing be done using silver, titanium, steel, and waxes—we can also print using ceramic powders for binder jetting and stereolithography (SLA) processes. Tethon 3D was the first company to develop and commercialize ceramic powders as 3D printing material, and they are now using it to create high quality durable 3D...

Tinkerfest 2017 a Success

               The crew at ProImage 3D had a blast last Saturday at Tinkerfest hosted by the Science Museum Oklahoma in OKC. We would like to thank the staff at the museum for inviting us to participate in the event and allowing us to help teach others about 3D printing and scanning. The turnout exceeded our expectations and we were blown away by all of...
