Woodworking Network: 3D Wood Object Printing Enabled by Universal Extruding Device

By Bill Esler

Wood paste and other materials can be printed using Structur3D Printing's   Discov3ry Universal Extrusion Device, said to be the first commercially available plug and play paste extruder that can be readily integrated into most 3D Printers already on the market.

Structur3D Printing says its Discov3ry paste extruder, being funded through a Kickstarter campaign and expected by December...

TechCrunch: New 3D Print Head Makes It Easier To Print Nutella

by John Biggs (@johnbiggs)

As a man who loves things that come out of tubes, I am excited about the Discov3ry Extruder. Designed as an add-on to popular 3D printers, the system is essentially a plunger connected to a nozzle that squirts out pastes of various types including icing, Nutella, spackle, and silicone.

The product just launched on Kickstarter and has surpassed its goal of $30,000. The extruder itself should work on most major 3D printers including RepRap machines and Makerbots. The extruder itself attaches to the standard extruder tip of the printer and then you have to set the specifications for various substances, including the aforementioned Nutella.

Fast Company: Finally, A 3-D Printer That Can Sculpt With Silicone, Nutella, Or Pretty Much Anything Viscous

By Steve Melendez

Most 3-D printers are great at turning designs into solid structures, but can only build with one or two types of solid plastic. But a newKickstarter campaign from Ontario-based Structur3D Printingoffers an aftermarket add-on letting common printers work with a wide variety of gel materials to produce everything from silicone-based orthotic shoe inserts to custom cake toppers printed from icing sugar.

cnet: 3D-print with Nutella: Paste extruder takes on Play-Doh, icing

Go beyond plastics with the Discov3ry Extruder, a paste extruder on Kickstarter that turns a regular 3D printer into a Nutella printer.

Technology may soon turn us all into badass cake-decorating pros. The first step is to already own a 3D printer. The next step is to check out the Discov3ry Extruder on Kickstarter. It's a paste extruder designed to create 3D shapes with any pasty sort of material, including silicone, wood filler, certain types of clay, and delicious cupcake frosting.

BetaKit: Waterloo 3D Printing Company Breaks Crowdfunding TARGET IN MERE HOURS

bk_logo-e1373275415883.png

3D printing has boldly made its way into the consumer market. But most desktop printers are limited to printing plastics which limits what can be created with these machine despite the fact that they are capable of doing more.

Today a Waterloo-based company that has created an accessory for 3D printers blew by its crowdfunding goal in mere hours. The Structure3D extruder now stands at $30,815 raised on a $30,000 target. The gadget unlocks 3D printing potential, allowing it to go beyond plastic to print with silicone, wood filler, cookie dough and even nutella.

GigaOm: You can 3D-print cookies, play dough and shoe inserts with this 3D printer add-on

Structur3D thinks 3D printer owners should be able to print everything from conductive inks to clay. Its Discov3ry add-on is now available for less than $350 on Kickstarter.

Andrew Finkle and Charles Mire came together to found 3D printer companyStructur3D after hitting on the same problem: There was no great option for printing soft materials like dough, silicone and conductive paste.

3DPrint.com: Discov3ry Extruder Launches Kickstarter Campaign to 3D Print in Silicone, Wood Filler, Conductive Paint & More

Last month I had the opportunity to get introduced to a fascinating new 3D printer extruder by a company named Structur3D Printing. The idea completely blew my mind, and made me realize that we are getting to a point where we are able to expand our horizons when it comes to 3D printing everyday items, that are both useful and affordable.

The Globe and Mail: If you can’t handle the crowds, Maker Faire isn’t for you

by CHARLES MIRE

One of the most critical parts of running a startup is getting solid market validation. That was our primary goal in attending the Bay Area Maker Faire in San Mateo, Calif.

We also wanted to show people our Discov3ry extruder, which retrofits most filament style 3-D printers to allow printing with paste materials. By showing people what paste printing looks like, and the range of off-the-shelf or homemade materials they could print, we hoped to remove some of the mystery of 3-D printing and get people thinking about possibilities.

“How is it going?” I asked Structur3D Printing’s co-founder Andrew Finkle, after pushing through a massive crowd in the Start Up Pavilion at Maker Faire Bay Area a week ago. “Intense” was his answer as he busily tended the Discov3ry extruder’s paste-printing designs, made from everything from silicone to Nutella, to the delight of the more than 130,000 attendees at the weekend event.

My second question went to co-founder Charles Mire: “Are you hitting your goals for pre-crowdfunding exposure?” The answer was an enthusiastic...

Fabbaloo: A New Universal 3D Paste Extruder

Soon to launch will be Structr3D Printing’s “universal paste extruder” that could enable many personal 3D printers to extruder some very unusual materials. 

It’s not a 3D printer per se, but rather a carefully designed extruder attachment that can, in theory, be mounted on many 3D printers by replacing the extruder.

3D Printing Industry: Universal 3D Printing Paste Extruder to Launch at Maker Faire this Weekend

In order to get the most out of our desktop 3D printers, we need a wider variety of printheads.  Makers have long been experimenting with the idea of universal paste extruders, syringe-like devices that can handle more viscous materials for 3D printing.  And, though many have successfully created such printheads,Structur3D will be launching the first commercially available paste extrusion system at the Maker Faire this weekend.

The Discov3ry paste extrusion system is more than just a syringe printhead that can squirt out a variety of goops.  Structr3D bills it as a plug-n-play device that anyone can attach to their existing RepRap-style 3D printer, including Makerbots and Ultimakers, and begin printing.

3ders.org: Discov3ry extruder expands your 3D printer to print silicone, clay & icing sugar

Home based 3D printing is currently limited to printing plastics, but Canada-based Structur3d Printing is creating an add-on extruder to enable almost any desktop 3D printer to print a whole new range of paste-like materials.

Structur3D's Discov3ry extruder is an affordable, plug and play device which can easily be integrated with MakerBot, RepRap, Ultimaker and most other DIY 3D printers. This will enable makers to print a whole new range of materials, including silicone, polyurethane and icing sugar.
