Wedding days are special days for everyone, and Daniel Weinberger is no exception. To celebrate love and to tie the knot with his beloved wife, this creative IT professional decided to make a custom-made 3D-printed wedding band.
Based in California, Dan has been a long-term fan of 3D printing. Back when he was still in school, he was fascinated with SolidWorks, a 3D CAD software that helps designers create authentic design experiences. Even though he built his career in IT, his interest in design and 3D printing didn’t cease.
“I’ve known about 3D printers for years! Currently, I work in medical device production, and our R&D department has resin printers to quickly prototype and design products we make. It’s nice to have the possibility to see how 3D printing works!” says Dan.

In autumn 2019, we announced our new and improved TPU offering! At i.materialise, we’re always working hard to expand our range of materials and finishes. And now, we’re introducing a new finish to give Rubber-like parts an ultra-sleek look: extra smooth.
As we are approaching February, many of us start to think about celebrating love and surprising our better halves with a special gift. While a box of chocolate and flowers never go out of fashion, maybe this year you would like to express your feelings in a unique way that will charm your loved one. (more…)
As our parent company, Materialise, marks its entry into the 4th decade of 3D printing in 2021, we’re entering a decade with the potential for radical renewal. The COVID-19 crisis has had an enormous effect on every industry and continues to propel us into a space where we need to think differently. To think about where we need to push the boundaries of innovation and creativity.
With this being said, the legacy of 3D printing starts in 2021 with three key trends: going back to the drawing board to rethink manufacturing; enabling the personalization of not only products, but also 3D printers themselves; and creating new solutions, fast.
From the whole team here at i.materialise, we’re wishing you a safe and happy holiday season!
Dr. Roger Close is a quantitative paleobiologist. His greatest interest lies in studying ‘macroevolutionary’ patterns in fossil records, documenting broad-scale evolutionary changes in groups such as birds, mammals, and fishes. Plus, he also knows a thing or two about 3D printing. (more…)
We’re wrapping up our 30th-anniversary blog series for our parent company, Materialise, with a look at the final 3D printing technology in our portfolio: selective laser sintering (SLS). SLS, with i.mat offerings in Polyamide (SLS), Alumide, and Polypropylene, has been offered at Materialise since 1998. Over the past 22 years, our team has worked with this technology to reliably print application after application. This next decade, we’re turning our sights on sustainability, and SLS has a major role in enabling our customers to order prints that are manufactured in a more sustainable way with our new Bluesint PA12 material.
Give unique 3D-printed pieces this holiday season. And get them at a great price when you order between Black Friday and Cyber Monday. (more…)
The times when 3D-printed jewelry sounded like an idea from a sci-fi movie are over. More and more jewelry designers print their designs today. Since 3D-printed pieces of jewelry look and feel exactly like traditionally casted objects, 3D-printed jewelry is on the verge of becoming mainstream. Let’s take a closer look at this design revolution. (more…)
