The Georgia Institute of Technology, University of Connecticut (UCONN), and the University of Massachusetts Lowell are collaborating to establish a National Science Foundation (NSF) Industry/University Cooperative Research Center (I/UCRC) for 3D printing. The I/UCRC will operate from all three universities to form the Science of Heterogeneous Additive Printing of 3D Materials (SHAP3D) center, addressing emerging challenges […]
In April 2018, assistant professor Michelle Bernhardt-Barry at the University of Arkansas was awarded a National Science Foundation research grant of $500,000 to support the development of 3D printed construction materials. Two months on, and further information about the 5 year project has been revealed, showing that it aims to use an usual method of binding natural […]
The openVertebrate (oVert) project is scanning between 20,000 and 30,000 fluid-preserved vertebrate specimens from institutions across the US and making them freely available to 3D print on the MorphoSource platform, a platform hosted by Duke University. Funded by a US National Science Foundation (NSF) grant, oVert has brought together research institutions who will CT scan the specimens, […]
Silent air vehicles for transport and defense have been identified as an area of national need in the U.S. in a bid to cut noise pollution and enhance military intelligence. In the wild, owls are perhaps one of the best examples of natural stealth and aerial agility, giving researchers a promising area for potential development. […]
In the latest wave of grants from the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) Florida A&M University (FAMU) and the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering have received an award for $4.9 million dollars. To be delivered in instalments from September 2017 through August 2022, the grant will help the institutions establish the Center for Complex Materials Design for […]
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 […]
(Swanson School of Engineering) – The University of Pittsburgh’s Swanson School of Engineering has been awarded two major grants that will fund research into the advancement of qualification standards and efficient complex modeling for additive manufacturing in metal. To develop standard qualification methods for additive manufacturing, the National Science Foundation’s Division of Civil, Mechanical and… View Article
(FoxNews.com) The Office of Naval Research and the National Science Foundation are partially funding Countour Crafting to develop 3D printed buildings using concrete. Concrete printers would be able to build a 2,500-square-foot building within a single day. That means soldiers deploying to a remote location with little to no infrastructure could be operating out of permanent structures pretty soon after a combat engineer unit arrived with printers and material aboard a C-17.
Building via Contour Crafting’s 3D printer would work just like any computer assisted manufacturing program. But instead of a robotic tap and die machine turning out parts according to a program, it would be an oversized printer following programmed schematics to lay down, layer by layer, a building, including outside and interior walls, spaces for doors and windows and all electrical, plumbing and air-conditioning conduits.
