Georgia Tech and Beida 3D print engineering strength origami

A 3D printing research collaboration between Georgia Institute of Technology and China’s Peking University (Beida) has yielded transformable structures that can support up to 100 times their own weight. A continuation of previous studies demonstrating self-assembling tensegrity structures, the results of this research is a step forward for engineering applications of origami structures. Origami engineering principles As pointed […]

3D printed tracheal splints used in pediatric surgery

Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (CHoA) and the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) have successfully used 3D printed tracheal splints in the pediatric surgery of a 7-month old patient with a life-threatening airway obstruction. The surgeons of CHoA used three custom-made splints, which were made by biomedical engineers of Georgia Tech. Donna Hyland, President and […]

The Georgia research lab patching children’s hearts with 3D printing

The Children’s Heart Research and Outcomes Center, aptly abbreviated as HeRO, is at the cutting edge of tissue engineering. A part of Georgia Tech and Emory University, HeRO is developing therapies that can change children’s lives and, unsurprisingly, 3D printing is playing its role in that plan. The Davis Group, led by HeRO director Michael Davis, […]

LLNL stainless steel 3D printing “better than traditional manufacturing”

In a recent study led by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), scientists have discovered a way of making stainless steel two to three times stronger than usual. The method takes advantage of the unique grain structure of stainless steel parts when 3D printed using powder bed fusion (PBF) technology. Though the goal of the research was […]
