We recently wrote about several projects that aim to increase the strength of 3D printed components. In November 2018, the “Father of RepRap,” Dr. Adrian Bowyer, demonstrated how hollow tubes could make 3D prints stronger. Later, Stefan Hermann at CNC Kitchen experimented with Smart Infill for stronger 3D prints.
A team of researchers at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) and Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) has developed a new method for generating stress adapted orthotropic infill for 3D printing.
Nanofabrica, an Israel-based developer of precision additve manufacturing technologies, has announced the commercial launch of its micro-level resolution AM technology.
Although 3D printing is being used for a variety of applications in healthcare, biomedical engineering and manufacturing, it is still pretty limited
During the 3D printing process, if gas trapped inside the metal powders that feed the 3D printers, microscopic gas pockets could appear.
By combining a microfluidic system into a direct laser writing (DLW) 3D printer, a team of German scientists printed microstructures consisting of several materials.
Dr. qing li and a team of scientists recently completed a study investigating the compatibility of hydroxyapatite and collagen when used for 3D bioprinted scaffolds that serve as bone substitutes.
In November of last year, Father of RepRap Dr. Adrian Bowyer demonstrated how hollow tubes could make 3D prints stronger.
UL Chemical Safety has announced the publication of ANSI/CAN/UL 2904, “Standard Method for Testing and Assessing Particle and Chemical Emissions from 3D Printers,”
Global standards organization ASTM International is partnering with Innovate UK, BSI (British Standards Institution) and the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) to create technical standards needed by the additive manufacturing industry.
