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 […]

NYU’s 3D printed microballoon foam could help keep submarines afloat

3D printed foams are used in experiments by materials scientists to make everyday objects smarter, and more effective for purpose. Containing millions of hollow microballoon air pockets, foams are lightweight, and enable materials to be manipulated in new and exciting ways. Foam has been used variously to make a type of 3D graphene, form fitting silicone, and […]

Linear Advance im 3D-Druck – Warum? Wozu? Was ist das?

In diesem Beitrag wird näher beschrieben, was Linear Advance für 3D-Drucker ist, welche 3D-Drucker das Verfahren bereits unterstützen und welche Vorteile daraus entstehen.  Linear Advance ist ein Algorithmus der den Druck des geschmolzenen Filaments je nach Druckgeschwindigkeit regelt. Im Normalfall wird diese Geschwindigkeit je nach Bewegungsgeschwindigkeit der anderen Achsen angepasst. Das ist grundsätzlich auch sinnvoll, […]
