Researchers at Australia’s University of Wollongong have found a way to 3D print human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) using a special bioink. The technique could be used to print “any type” of bodily tissue, including brain tissue.
A group of engineering students from the University of Toronto have recently been given a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, due to their pioneering research project in a previously unexplored niche of physics. They are investigating a phenomenon known as the ‘liquid rope coil’ effect
Bodycote, a British provider of heat treatment and specialist thermal processing services, has released Powdermet, a group of additive manufacturing processes for the production of complex components using powder metallurgy.
A team of computer science researchers from Disney Research and the University Rey Juan Carlos in Madrid have developed a design tool software that makes it possible to 3D print smooth curved surfaces in a fast and cost-efficient manner.
Researchers from the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) and Rice University in Houston, Texas have developed a novel process for creating “damage-tolerant components” made from multiple materials. The innovative process combines 3D printing with traditional casting methods.
AML Technologies (Additive Metal Layering Technologies), a metal 3D printing startup based in Adelaide, Australia, has been awarded a 500,000 AUD ($380,000) grant from the Australian government to develop its Wire-Arc Additive Manufacturing (WAM) process.
Autodesk has had a patent approved for a “support posts” technique for improving the flexural strength of 3D printed objects. Originally filed in 2014, the newly approved patent gives Autodesk ownership of a different approach to support structures.
A pioneering new technique is currently being trialled for 3D bio-printing, which has the potential to revolutionize the way biological tissues are engineered. The new method, which was developed by researchers at the National University of Singapore
A team of researchers from Texas A&M University has developed a novel method for improving the strength of 3D printed thermoplastic parts. By coating filaments with multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) and then exposing them to microwaves, the team found that it was able to improve a printed part’s strength by as much as 275%.
Lockheed Martin, the American global aerospace and defense company, has announced it will be investing $1 million to establish an additive manufacturing facility at the Metropolitan State University of Denver. The lab, which will be dedicated to develo…
