Watch: synchronized 3D printing of concrete walls by NTU mobile robots

Addressing volume limitations within additive manufacturing and construction, roboticists from the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore have created a method for large-scale concrete 3D printing using multiple synchronized mobile robots. As the study states, “The biggest limitation of printing systems is their lack of scalability,” “Our system demonstrates scalability by allowing users to introduce […]

3D printing news Sliced, GKN Powder Metallurgy, Orbital ATK, 3MF and Duke University

Today’s edition of our 3D printing news digest Sliced, asks the following: How do you redirect sound with 3D printing? Will 3D printers ever find a place in mechanics’ shops? Are 3D printed hypersonic warheads viable? All this and more from Duke University, PostNord, GKN Powder Metallurgy and the 3MF consortium. Metamaterials, soluble supports and […]

3D bioprinted skin beats manual samples in A*STAR pigment research

3D bioprinted skin often misses pigmentation. This is because researchers need a more reliable method of 3D printing with multiple types of cells. In a Masters thesis from University of Texas El Paso (UTEP), postgraduate Corinne Nicole Wittmann previously considered the possibility of 3D bioprinted pigmentation. In experiments with collagen, the 3D bioprinted samples showed […]

NTU Forscher entwickeln nachhaltiges Material für Beton-3D-Druck

An der Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapur ist es Forschern gelungen ein neuartiges und zudem nachhaltiges Material zu entwickeln, das Beton ähnelt und bei 3D-Druckverfahren eingesetzt werden kann. Das innovative Material besteht aus einer Mischung aus Flugasche, Stahlschlacke sowie einigen weiteren Chemikalien, die nicht genannt werden. Flugasche entsteht beispielsweise in großen Mengen in Kohlekraftwerken […]

Singapore’s NTU Launches $30M 3D Printing Research Centre

(StraitsTimes) The Nanyang Technological University (NTU) launched a $30 million 3D printing research centre on Monday to pioneer new ways of using the technology for fields such as medicine and construction. Supported by the Economic Development Board, the centre is focusing in part on the printing of human tissue and biomedical devices such as scaffolds to regrow bone. It has signed agreements with a handful of companies to develop 3D printed products for their sectors. NTU also signed a $5 million agreement on Monday with SLM solutions, a leading 3D printer manufacturer, to develop next-generation printers that can print much larger products than existing ones. Under the agreement, both sides will also work together to develop new materials, composites and techniques for 3D printing.
