things i read #3: 3D printers!

Sometimes I read something really good online and I just wanna save it somewhere. This is that stuff. Split into categories for easier browsing! (Category names intentionally vague/sometimes inaccurate.) Nah, this is just stuff you can apparently make with a 3D printer!

The World’s Biggest Free Form 3D Printer Is Being Used to Build Houses, Adam Clark Estes for Gizmodo: The biggest free-form 3D printer in the world is in Tennessee and they’re learning to make houses with it! Well, it’s not a reality yet but it might be soon. Click for a gif of the printer working.

Developing 3D Printed Assistive Tools For The Elderly, Eric Ho for The Shapeways Blog: These are some seriously gorgeous 3D-printed assistive tools that help people with limited hand movement open bottles, write with a pen, etc. Someone on Tumblr pointed out that these tools could be helpful for disabled people/people with chronic pain, too.
