Voodoo Manufacturing launches Fulfilled by Voodoo 3D print sales service

New York-based 3D printing bureau Voodoo Manufacturing, has launched a new service, Fulfilled by Voodoo (FBV). FBV is a full-stack manufacturing and fulfillment service that Voodoo hopes will make it easier for businesses to sell 3D printed products online, freeing them to focus “on the parts of business that matter most – like product development, growth […]

Swinburne Industry 4.0 Testlab introduces unique composite 3D printing technology

A new method of carbon fiber composite 3D printing is under development at Swinburne University of Technology. Part of the Australian Prime Minister’s Industry 4.0 Testlab initiative, the so-termed ‘Multilayer’ technology is delivered by Fill, a special machinery and plant construction company headquartered in Austria. “In order to make high value-added products from such materials affordable […]

Blamey Saunders introduces 3D designed world first hearing aid

A “world first” modular, self-fittable hearing aid has been developed by Blamey Saunders Hears. The Australian hearing company headquartered in Victoria made the medtech breakthrough using 3D printing to deliver multiple design iterations. Named the Facett, Blamey Saunders’ latest hearing aid has been designed with “human-centred design principles in focus,” and comes with the added […]

RMIT 3D printed implant study proves our bodies thrive off diamonds

While it may not be as a catchy as the famous song from Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, research from RMIT University argues that diamonds are (also) a 3D printer’s best friend. More specifically, diamond, as it is made from carbon, improves the biocompatibility of 3D printed titanium implants. The breakthrough discovery made by Dr. Kate Fox and her […]

Australian researchers launch explosive $2 million 3D printer materials partnership

The Australian government has awarded 5 research institutions $2 million USD ($2.6 million AUD) to develop additive manufacturing technology for “energetic materials”. Reactive in content, energetic materials cover a body of polymers that can be used as explosives, or solid rocket fuel. 3D printing the materials gives military and defense operations the potential to reduce […]

RMIT develops 3D printed smartphone microscope for remote healthcare

Looking for a smartphone upgrade? Look no further than your 3D printer. RMIT University scientists have developed a “clip-on” filter that can turn smartphone cameras into a powerful microscope. Capable of viewing specimens as small as 1/200th of a millimeter, the device will come in handy as a point of care diagnostic tool or research […]

Stryker funds $9.29 million project for on demand bone cancer implants

Australia is rapidly growing as a nation with outstanding medical research expertise. In November 2016 the nation opened its first specialist biofabrication unit at the Herston Health Precinct in Brisbane, and projects at its leading institutions, including the University of Wollongong, are active in developing new paradigms in the world of 3D bioprinting. ‘Just in […]
