Blender is a free and open source 3D animation suite. It supports the entirety of the 3D pipeline—modeling, rigging, animation, simulation, rendering, compositing and motion tracking, even video editing and game creation.
Saw this over at Tested recorded at Maker Faire 2016. Researchers at the Galileo University in Guatemala have created a robot's body with remote control via an Oculus DK2 headset and Perception Neuron motion capture system allowing for almost a conscious form of telepresence.
We all know by now that before we throw away plastic six-pack rings we should cut them apart so animals won't choke on them, but that doesn't solve the problem of animals trying to eat them. Saltwater Brewery in Florida has taken a 3D-printed step toward fixing that problem with edible six-pack rings.
Mother's Day is this Sunday, and with that comes obligatory pampering, phone calls, flowers, jewelry, and visits. But what if you just can't swing a plane ticket this year? Groupon wants you to send your mom a 3D printed you, and it's more than a little disturbing.

File this under, "Things We Didn't Know We Needed Until We Saw Them". Not only is this 3D design by Gambody incredibly detailed both inside and out, but the StereoLithography (STL) files to make one yourself are available for download!
Youtuber Mehdi Sadaghdar a.k.a ElectroBOOM is know for his occasional on screen electrical mishaps, quirky takes and minor explosions. Frankly, it's a wonder he survives some of his builds. Today, he takes a look at 3D how 3D printing works and how to 3D print .... a BOMB!
