The Mcor ARKe has been boosted to ‘photorealistic’ levels of colour

Since its launch in January, the Mcor ARKe has had its engineers squirrelling away on upgrades for the machine that is already one of the best alternative choices for a desktop 3D printer.

Its photorealistic colour - with a 4800×2400dpi resolution - is a huge benefit to those wanting realistic prototypes straight off the printer bed, but this has been boosted even further by the new upgrades.

We turned to Mcor CEO and co-founder Conor MacCormack to update us on its engineering advancements:

Middle school students from Mystic Middle School, Connecticut, US, have helped to create a 3D printed orthotic boot for a penguin at the nearby Mystic Aquarium.

Using 3D Systems’ technology to make a custom-fit flipper for an injured endangered penguin, the students 3D scanned a foot cast, then modelled and 3D printed the grippy new boot for Purps the penguin.

The process depressed with the time consuming wrestling needed to fit a penguin with a bulky manual traditional cast, while being able to add in some custom elements like rubbery grips on the bottom.

Designjunction will be supporting the British Dyslexia Association this London Design Festival

As part of the London Design Festival, designjunction will be playing host to the inaugural Dyslexic Design, an exhibition which explores the connection between dyslexia and the creative industries.

The project, running from 22 – 25 September at 1 Granary Square, King’s Cross, is in support of the British Dyslexia Association, and celebrates the work of dyslexic designers across multiple design disciplines including product, fashion, illustration, home decor and fine art.

The Dyslexic Design exhibition, curated by leading UK homewares designer Jim Rokos, will challenge perceptions of dyslexia by accentuating the positive effects of living with dyslexia and its close association with design in a bid to remove the stigma sometimes associated with it.
