Limbitless Solutions begins first-of-its-kind clinical trials for 3D printed arms

This week Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) and Limbitless Solutions, a nonprofit organization based at the University of Central Florida (UCF), began “the first U.S. clinical trial of bionic arms for children produced on 3D printers.” A landmark moment for all parties involved, the trials will determine whether Limitbless prosthesis can be certified by […]

Cornell presents foundations of collaborative human-robot 3D printing

The next industrial revolution (Industry 4.0) will be led by cyber-physical systems (CPS) integrating computation, networking, and manual processes. To this end, factories will rely more an more on collaboration between human employees and robots. In a recent interview Sören Papsdorf, Head of Manufacturing Engineering at KUKA, said that he believed human-robot collaboration is “the […]

UCF and UT win $400k for micro 3D printed light-bending research

The University of Central Florida (UCF) and the University of Texas (UT) have won a collaborative research award from the National Science Foundation (NSF). Over the course of three years the NSF will provide the project with $400,049. This money will be used for 3D printing photon funnels. As microscopic lattice-like constructs, photon funnels change the […]

University of Central Florida Uses Stratasys to 3D Print Robotic Arm for 6 Year Old

(Stratasys blog) – University of Central Florida engineering students have developed a robotic arm for 6-year-old Alex Pring, using a Dimension Elite 3D Printer by Stratasys. Born without his right arm, Pring always dreamed of climbing trees or shaking hands. His dreams came true thanks to UCF engineering students who designed and 3D printed a… View Article
