How to Safely Trim Your Dog's Nails

Cutting your dog’s nails is one of the trickiest parts of the grooming process. Their nail beds have what is called a “quick”—tissue that grows within the nail and connects to nerves and blood vessels—and if you cut too much of the nail off, you can cut into the quick, injuring your pup. Plus, not all dogs like having…Read more...

Experimental 3D Printer Offers a Clever Way to Eliminate Waste

One of the unique challenges of 3D printing is that models that feature structures hanging in mid-air, like the spout of a teapot, also need temporary structures to support the soft extruded plastic until it hardens. This can result in a lot of wasted material, because those supports are just discarded afterwards. A …Read more...

When Not to Use a Magic Eraser

Magic erasers are incredibly versatile cleaning products, capable of removing even the stubbornest stains and hardened gunk from a variety of surfaces. But sometimes, they work a little too well, taking off a little bit of paint or varnish along with the gunk. This is because magic erasers are abrasive cleaners that…Read more...

This Machine Creates 3D Objects In Seconds

When we think of 3D printing we usually think of a little robot that squirts out endless lines of plastic onto a surface. But vacuum forming—smoothing a sheet of thin plastic over an object to make a hollow copy—has been around much longer and is the premise behind Myyard’s Formart 2.Read more...

How to Turn a Used Bookcase Into a Functional Kitchen Island

Sitcoms (usually) have the best kitchens. Of course, that’s because they’re fake, missing an entire wall, and designed to make it easy for the cameras to get the angles they need. In addition to a swinging door from the kitchen to the neighboring room, one of the other sitcom kitchen staples is a kitchen island. Read more...
