Digital Metal, part of the metal powder-producing Höganäs Group in Sweden, has launched a fully automated production concept for 3D metal printing.
NUST MISIS scientists have proposed an advanced method for production of an ultrahigh-purity alumina (UHPA) that can double the strength of 3D printed aluminum composites
Australian and Indian researchers have developd a new theoretical model that successfully predicts the residual stresses and critical deposition heights for laser additive manufacturing.
As part of Digital Design Weekend 2018, Ai Build, a London based company developing Artificial Intelligence and Robotic technologies for large scale additive manufacturing, showcased new technology to bring 3D printing and artificial intelligence algorithms to the factory floor in a bid to change the way we’ll build the future.
Researchers at Purdue Polytechnic Institute and the College of Engineering faculty are working to develop a multi-functional 3D printer that could eventually let people print out “smart” objects, including entire cellphones.
Wellington, New Zealand-based industrial designer Nicole Hone reveals ‘hydrophytes’, a series of futuristic aquatic plants created with multi-material 3D printing. The hydrophytes are then activated by pneumatic inflation in water and transform into dynamic organisms.
Researchers from the Complex Materials and Soft Materials team at ETH Zurich have developed a bioinspired approach to 3D print lightweight structures using cheap desktop FDM printers and liquid-crystal-polymers.
3D printed parts often need sanding or chemical treatments to achieve a smooth and desirable finish; however such processes are typically costly, labor intensive, and time consuming.
Researchers at the Centre for Information Technology and Architecture (CITA) of the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and at the Danish Technological Institute have developed a new hybrid construction concept called “Sparse Concrete Reinforcement In Meshworks”
Metal 3D printing has enormous potential to revolutionize modern manufacturing. However, the existing metal 3D printing processes, which use lasers to fuse together fine metal powder, have their limitations.
