What do you need it for? … Why do you ask?

 Purpose, Precision & Price As a 3D printing service bureau, we receive calls from clients with different ideas about what 3D printing is and what its capabilities are.  Some just want a physical part to hold in their hands while others need the parts for end use. Our goal at ProImage 3D is to deliver […]

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 […]

WYSIWYG….WYSI What???

“WYSIWYG” pronounced wizēˌwiɡ, stands for What You See Is What You Get. This is a term that was once very popular in the graphic arts printing industry, at least in the early days of desktop publishing. It was a term often used with customers to explain why chunky or rough looking text and or graphics, sometimes referred […]

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.

Self-Assembling “Patchy Particles” Could Revolutionize 3D Printing

                Molecular self-assembly is a process when a disordered system of molecules forms an organized arrangement without help from an outside source.  Self-assembly is also used in proteins to assemble themselves into virus capsids and phases associated with diseases; the process is driven by thermodynamic and kinetic factors. Scientists have figured out a way to […]
