Classic comic book hero Captain America is celebrating his 75th birthday this year, so Marvel has gone above and beyond in paying tribute to this American icon by commissioning a bronze statue of the hero to be placed in New York City’s Prospect Park in Brooklyn! The statue, which will be initially unveiled at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con before moving to this permanent New York residence, will predominately feature Captain America in a heroic pose, with his iconic shield held aloft. Once completed, the statue will measure 13 feet in height! As of this moment, the only visual fans have to go off of is a design sketch of the statue, though you can look forward to the statue’s unveiling at Comic-Con later this July!

The MakerBot booth at the International Consumer Electronics Show has been a popular attraction since the company unveiled its home-use retail 3D printers. At this year’s CES booth, MakerBot has taken its 3D printers to the next level by announcing a new range of PLA composite filaments for its range of Replicator printers! These new filaments feature composites previously unavailable to the 3D-printing public outside of highly specialized printers, including wood, iron, bronze, and even limestone! With these composite filaments, MakerBot printers are now able to create prints in these new materials, which can be tailored to fit any need. The materials retain all the properties of their base composite, allowing users to stain, polish, sand, and oil their wood-based objects, or even magnetize metal-based prints. These new filaments will be made available for purchase in late 2015, and will surely lead to a whole new set of possibilities from 3D printers.
