University of Minnesota researchers create 3D printed implant that restores function in spinal cord

Researchers at the University of Minnesota (UMN) have developed a prototype for a 3D-printed scaffold with living cells that could help restore some function to patients with spinal cord injuries. 3D printed scaffolds In a report titled “3D Printed Stem-Cell Derived Neural Progenitors Generate Spinal Cord Scaffolds”, the researchers demonstrate the process and benefits of a bioprinted […]

Sub $400 3D prints electric sensing temporary tattoos for soldiers

Scientists at the University of Minnesota (UMN) have 3D printed an electronic circuit on to the back of a human hand for the first time. Though temporary, like lick n stick tattoos, this technology presents great potential for helping to heal wounds, gather advanced intelligence on the battlefield, and promote response in remote locations. “It would […]

U.S. Marine Corps improving squadron self-sufficiency with 3D printing

U.S. Marines with Combat Logistic Battalion 31 (CLB), part of the 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU), are using 3D printing to create spare parts. The 31st MEU deploys with little notice, as the need arises. The nature of their mission means that sending replacement parts around the world is not often feasible, something that leads […]

US-Forscher stellen LEDs mit 3D-Drucker her

Eine Gruppe von Wissenschaftlern der Universität von Princeton in den USA hat unter der Leitung von Professor Michael McAlpine eine neue Methode zur Herstellung von LEDs entwickelt.  Die aus fünf Lagen bestehenden Quantenpunkt-Leuchtdioden sollen am 3D-Drucker hergestellt werden können und energieeffizienter als herkömmliche LEDs sein. Zuerst wird ein Ring aus Silber-Nanopartikeln aufgetragen, darüber kommen zwei Lagen […]
