There are many types of 3D printers, from the ever-popular FDM (fused deposition modeling) variants that adorn many a maker’s desktop to the ultra-precise SLA (stereolithography)
Last year, we reported on the Virginia Tech team that developed a method for 3D printing Kapton using stereolithography (SLA). That interdisciplinary team out of VT’s Macromolecules Innovation Institute (MII) has taken the discovery one step further by creating a direct ink write
The exciting and rapidly changing digital manufacturing methods have influenced many fields of art and design. These new technologies have introduced new tools for pushing the boundaries of the medium both regarding concept and materiality.
Makefast Workshop, the Delaware-based design and fabrication studio that brought us LightNudge, published a tutorial on their hacks page detailing how to 3D print coils/springs in mid air without support material. For all the overhang masters out there…
Machine tool and laser technology leader TRUMPF demonstrated its latest 3D printer, TruPrint 5000, and green laser technology at the international Formnext trade fair in Frankfurt.
New Zealand’s Callaghan Innovation unveiled Laminated Resin Printing (LRP) – a new 3D printing technology that enables rapid prototyping of high-resolution microscale structures.
Researchers have found that many desktop 3D printers generate a range of different-sized particles, including ultrafine particles (UFPs)
Krailling, Germany based industrial 3D printing systems maker EOS announced that it will introduce a revolutionary technology for polymer additive manufacturing at formnext 2018.
Dutch researchers at University of Twente has developed a new metal 3D printing technique which allows a laser apparatus to print metal structures drop by drop, including in pure gold, on the few micron scale.
The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office officially published a series of 46 newly granted patents for Apple Inc. this week. One of Apple’s newly granted patents covers their invention relating to techniques for 3D printing three dimensional (3D) objects.
