EPSD 3D printing method introduced by Stratasys subsidiary Evolve Additive

Evolve Additive Solutions, a wholly owned subsidiary of Stratasys, is on the brink of unveiling a new, high-speed plastics 3D printing process. Reportedly up to “50 times faster than the next fastest AM plastics technology” the so-termed electrophotography-based additive manufacturing (EPSD) process has been in development since 2009. Using photocopier intelligence Evolve Additive’s technique is […]

McLaren Applied Technologies use 3D printed prototypes to design Project Invincible shield

McLaren Applied Technologies, a member of the McLaren Group best known for automotive production, has used a range of 3D technologies to develop a medical breastplate. Known as Project Invincible, the product borrows features from the McLaren Racing’s Formula racing cars to achieve three key aims, protecting the body from initial impact, transferring the load […]

3D printing brings robotics closer to real life with synthetic muscle

Scientists have invented a 3D printed synthetic muscle that can lift up to 1000 times its own weight. In a paper published earlier this week, Aslan Miriyev, Kenneth Stack and Hod Lipson from Columbia University describe an new actuator which mimics the expansion and contraction of human muscle. The actuator can be attached to a skeletal structure to create […]
