Patent filed for metal 3D printing without layers

The patent for a metal 3D printing method reportedly capable of  producing entire objects in a single step has been published online by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). Invented by Nataša Muševič, director of Research and Development at small-scale manufacturing provider and consultancy Zavod Park in Slovenia, the system is a method of support-free 3D printing […]

3D Printing Industry review of the year December 2018

News from the 3D printing world did not slow down in the last month of the calendar. December brought developments in materials, software, and European Space Agency’s ambitious plans for interplanetary missions. Marie the phantom A Louisiana State University student Meagan Moore, 3D printed a full-body phantom (and she named it Marie) which can be […]

$2.6M funding awarded in America Makes’ 3D printing research projects

America Makes, an Ohio-based additive manufacturing accelerator, has announced the awardees of two Directed Project Opportunities: Acceleration of Large-Scale Additive Manufacturing (ALSAM) and Advancing Additive Manufacturing Post-Processing Techniques (AAPT). Additive manufacturing roadmap America Makes, founded by the U.S Department of Defense (DoD), is part of the Manufacturing USA network, along with thirteen more institutions and […]

LLNL presents new class of 3D printed metamaterials that strengthen on demand

Combining 3D printing with a magnetic ink injection, researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) have created a new class of metamaterial – engineered with behaviors outside their nature. Like 4D printed objects, LLNL’s 3D printed lattices rely on the fourth element of time to become something “other” than their natural resting state. However, in […]

LLNL machine learning detects 3D printer failures with 10ms of video

Engineers and scientists at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), California, have applied an algorithm to detect flaws in parts as they are 3D printed. Convolutional neural networks (CNNs), used with real-time in situ monitoring cameras present the next step toward an ability to “fix it on the fly” and improve the reliability of metal additive systems. “This […]

3D-Druck von nanoporösem Gold könnte die elektrochemische Stoffumwandlung revolutionieren

Nanoporöses Gold 232x300 - 3D-Druck von nanoporösem Gold könnte die elektrochemische Stoffumwandlung revolutionieren

Nanoporöse Metalle sind aufgrund ihrer großen Oberfläche und hohen elektrischen Leitfähigkeit bessere Katalysatoren für chemische Reaktionen und eignen sich daher hervorragend für Anwendungen wie elektrochemische Reaktoren, Sensoren und Aktuatoren. In einer Studie, die in der Zeitschrift Science Advances veröffentlicht wurde, berichten Wissenschaftler des Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) zusammen mit ihren Kollegen von der Harvard [...]

Virginia Tech and LLNL develop light based method of 3D printing graphene

Virginia Tech and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) have developed a high resolution method of 3D printing graphene that is “an order of magnitude greater” than any 3D printed before. Aiming to unlock ways to make graphene in any shape or quantity, the researchers have moved one step closer to harnessing its true potential as the strongest […]

U.S. Navy awards GE $9 million for metal 3D printing digital twin

With an award of $9 million over the next four years, GE Global Research is to develop a process for creating 1:1 scale twin digital models of metal 3D printed parts for the U.S. Navy. According to recent estimates, the Navy will depend upon approximately 1,000 3D printed parts by the end of 2018. Through the […]
