    The explosives were reportedly found at Cairo airport Guards at Cairo airport apparently discovered the suspected bombs during security checks on two packages which were due to be stowed away on board a flight to America via London. But after a probe they discovered the packages contained no explosives, an Egyptian Interior Ministry source said. It was thought that the parcels, which weighed about 10kg, were flagged up after unusual objects were detected by an X-ray scanner. Egyptian news agency Aswat Masriya reported that the parcels, which contained printer ink cartridges, "appeared to be contaminated" and were set to be...
  • Need printer recommendation

    10/26/2015 11:52:08 AM PDT · by ru4liberty · 61 replies
    I have an ink hog Canon MG5220. Not only do I get dull colors and muddy resolution when I print, the cartridges don't last worth squat. I don't use that much color in my printing, yet it seems like I'm always running out of one color or another. The replacement package of ink tanks is about $60, so I have decided to look for a printer that doesn't drink the ink. I would prefer to spend less than the cost 2 packages of replacement cartridges (>$120). I want color integrity so that what I'm seeing on my computer screen is...

    3D printing has been making waves in the manufacturing arena which is touted as the next big thing to revolutionise consumerism and product development. Just as e-commerce has removed the boundaries for marketing and brought the consumers and producers closer, 3D printing is expected to enlarge the market for producers by removing the shackles of production volumes, minimising the time to market and customising the product as per individual customer needs and all of this at affordable costs. In the early days of product creation, nuts, screws and hinges were individually hand-crafted for a very long time until the industrialisation...

    Aside from the Duke's classic Colt six-shooter, no pistol has such a place in American history as the 1911 .45-caliber handgun. Now the folks at Solid Concepts have successfully produced one of these handguns (pictured), all steel and all 3-D-printed. Fabricating 3-D weapons has come a long way in a short period.
  • Need a new liver? Just print one: 3D printer makes working human liver

    Metro ^ | November 9, 2013
    A group of US scientists have created the world’s smallest human liver which can survive for forty days and works like the real thing – using a 3D printer. The mini-livers, made by California-based medical research company Organvo, are just half a millimetre deep and four millimetres wide but can perform most of the functions that a real liver can. The printer builds up 20 layers of hepatocytes cells, which carry out liver functions, along with two major types of liver cell. It also adds cells from the lining of a blood vessel. This allows the liver cells to receive...

    Lab-grown livers have come a step closer to reality thanks to a 3D printer loaded with cells (see video above). Created by Organovo in San Diego, California, future versions of the system could produce chunks of liver for transplant. The mini-livers that Organovo made are just half a millimetre deep and 4 millimetres across but can perform most functions of the real thing. To create them, a printer builds up about 20 layers of hepatocytes and stellate cells – two major types of liver cell. Crucially, it also adds cells from the lining of blood vessels. These form a delicate...

    Gun Watch ^ | 12 January, 2013 | Dean Weingarten
    Major improvements have been made in 3D printed AR15 rifles. The part of the rifle that is defined as a gun by federal law is the only part printed. The rest of the parts are commonly available on the free market. People have made guns at home since guns were invented in the 1500’s or before. However, the ability to print out your own AR15 lower receiver at home, without having to use steel files, a grinder, or other home workshop tools, has caught the attention of the public in this digital age. Defense Distributed is the organization that aims...

    Defense Distributed spokesman Cody Wilson tells the UK’s Guardian that his company has the “logistics, time, resources and money” to start freely distributing blueprints that will let any hobbyist with a 3-D home printer make their own gun, and now it’s just up to Uncle Sam to sign off on a federal firearms license. Wilson doesn’t think there will be any problem, though, and says his company plans to be approved and begin building prototypes in the coming weeks. “We're just waiting on a little piece of paper,” Wilson says, which could be all the federal government needs to give...

    It has long been possible to make a gun at home. But what happens when it no longer takes knowledge and skill to build one? It won't be long before a felon, unable to buy a gun legally, can print one at home. Teenagers could make them in their bedroom while their parents think they are "playing on their computer." I'm talking about a fully functional gun, where the schematic is downloaded free from the Internet and built on a 3-D printer, all with the click of a button. Hit print, walk away, and a few hours later, you have...

    I’ve used my Stratasys to prototype out various ideas for paintball gun parts, but the concept of using it for actual firearm parts hadn’t really occurred to me until early last year. I first thought of making some dummy 12 gauge shells to test out the action on a Remington 870, and then thought of using it to test out 1911 pistol grip panel ideas. Gun manufacturers have been using rapid prototyping for years, and the concept is now making its way to the hobbyist gunsmith. To the best of my knowledge, this has been restricted to mockups (Justin Halford...
  • Lasers can 'unprint' documents

    03/17/2012 3:48:22 PM PDT · by U-238 · 52 replies · 2+ views
    British researchers say they've developed a laser process that can "uncopy" toner ink from paper as an alternative to traditional recycling. Scientists at the University of Cambridge say the process involves short laser pulses to erase words and images by heating the printed material to the point that it vaporizes. The technique works with commonly used papers and toner inks and is more eco-friendly than recycling, they said. "When you fire the laser, it hits the thin toner layer and heats it up until the point that you vaporize it," researcher David Leal-Ayala told the BBC. "Toner is mostly composed...

    Exciting times, friends. While we’ve been cleaning up the proverbial ticker tape left behind by jubilant celebration over the recently-stalled antipiracy bills, the Pirate Bay – arguably the premier resource for pirating digital content – has already moved on to the next big thing. The site has announced a new category called “Physibles” that houses digital files that can be downloaded and used in conjunction with 3D printers to print out actual, physical objects: We believe that the next step in copying will be made from digital form into physical form. It will be physical objects. Or as we decided...

    FR, I recently converted my computer to 32-bit Windows 7 from XP. When I installed my HP 3052 print/scanner/fax it was able to print but I lost the fax and scan capabilities. No, the driver for Windows Vista won't work. The HP 'Universal' driver just supports printing. I was wondering if anyone had the same problem and if there was some way to make this work like maybe with a substitute driver? Thank you for your help!

    I'm trying to help a person install an HP All-In-One Printer/Scanner on their desktop, which is running Windows 7. The HP software worked just fine for his laptop, which is running XP (he can both print and scan using the machine which has XP). He said he downloaded all the necessary and applicable drivers (latest and greatest versions) from, and while the printer works, the scanner does not. When attempting to scan, the error is something along the lines of "Cannot communicate with scanner." Anyone have similar troubles and might be able to offer some words of wisdom? The...
