Researchers from the UK’s Queen Mary University of London have used a 3D printing technique to create constructs that resemble biological structures. The structures are embedded in an ink that resembles natural environments.
A team from Cornell University, including researcher Huaishu Peng, has developed a hybrid 3D printing system guided by augmented reality (AR). The innovative system, called the Robotic Modeling Assistant or RoMA for short, enables users to design 3D mo…
A professor of Applied Mechanics at the Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands has developed a model for determining the dimensions and printing speeds needed to keep 3D printed concrete walls stable.
Researchers from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) have developed a new process for the 3D printing of nanoscale metal structures. The process could be used to make tiny logic circuits, lightweight aircraft components, and more.
A professor of mathematics at the Politecnico di Milano in Italy has made a breakthrough in 4D printing, the 3D printing of objects that are programmed to change shape over time. The discovery involves controlling the nucleation of localized creases in…
From mini Eiffel Towers drawn in 3D, to architectural models, to intricate and unique fashion pieces, 3D printing pens have been an integral part of the 3D printing industry, especially on its creative side. Of course, the process of using 3D pens vari…
A team of researchers at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) has developed a new kind of 3D printable ink that makes it possible to recolor 3D printed objects after printing. The process has been named “ColorFab.”
A collaborative research team from Harvard’s Wyss Institute, the Julius Wolff Institute, the Berlin-Brandenburg Center for Regenerative Therapies, and Charité’s Center for Musculoskeletal Surgery has come together to study the benefits of 3D printed titanium-mesh scaffolds in implants.
As we approach this year’s much anticipated Technishow, makers and businesses from around the world are starting to share their excitement with previews of what to expect this March in Utrecht. For those not in the know, the renowned Dutch trade show offers the largest manufacturing industry platform in the Benelux area
Sebaceous glands help the skin stay moist and protect it against external influences such as harsh weather, pollution, and microbial assaults: The oily or waxy matter that these microscopic, exocrine glands secrete – called sebum – lubricates and softens the skin and hair.
