Last week, we demonstrated the Discov3ry Complete as a guest of Ultimaker at the Additive Manufacturing Show Europe in Amsterdam. As with many shows where we demonstrate our technology, people still can't believe we're printing soft materials like silicone.

This past week, we had the pleasuring of hosting @RobotGrrl at our E3 lab while she was here in Kitchener.
'Extrude, Experiment, Explore' doesn’t even begin to crack what she accomplished this week. Take a look at her vlog:
For more information about Erin’s work, follow her on Twitter (@RobotGrrl), or visit her latest project, RobotMissions.org. If you want to check out the Python Script she used, you can access it here. Note that this is an experimental script. It directly modifies the gcode, so caution is needed as some commands may be different for your printer.
We will be following your work, @RobotGrrl! Can’t wait to see what you print next.
For more info on the Discov3ry, you can visit Structur3D.io.
We at Structur3D Printing realize that silicone is one of the most popular materials our customers want to print. In fact, we have been printing with silicone a lot as well. For this case study we selected a silicone material and a geometry to provide all our case study data. The off-the-shelf silicone material we have chosen is the one we have had the most success with.
This update is jam packed with images and info. Enjoy!
I've been looking forward to digging into the survey responses for a while now. The biggest question on my mind was, "What pastes are people excited about 3D printing with?"
The most interesting question was definitely "What Types Of Materials Do You Intend To Print With Using The Discov3ry Paste Extruder"?
Here's what we found out when we looked at the responses:
(Feel free to share that photo wherever you like to go to chat about 3D printing)
We would love to hear what you would like to #ExtrudeExperimentExplore. Please share your PASTES in the comments or submit via http://bit.ly/pastesurvey
Reporting the Data (like good scientists)
i.materialise had the very clever idea of writing up a post called "3 Reasons to visit the i.materialise stand at Maker Faire Detroit".
Well we're going to be there too!
As a hat tip to i.materialise, and of course a sense of friendly competition, we present to you...
