Watch this 3D printed submarine paddle without fuel or electricity

Made entirely out of plastic on a multi-material 3D printer, ETH Zürich’s mini submarine presents a crucial stroke forward for the future of smart devices. The 7.5 centimeter long vehicle is capable of paddling forwards, delivering cargo, and returning to base, all without an engine, propellant, or power supply. An impressive feat combining materials science, computing […]

Longest 3D printed part Guinness Book World Record set by Made In Space

At 37.7 meters (123 ft, 8.25 inches) long, a beam 3D printed by Made In Space has made it into the Guinness Book of World Records as the “longest 3D printed non-assembled piece.” The beam, which runs the length of the Moffett Field facility at NASA’s Ames Research Center, serves as a demonstration of the scale that may one […]

NYU’s 3D printed microballoon foam could help keep submarines afloat

3D printed foams are used in experiments by materials scientists to make everyday objects smarter, and more effective for purpose. Containing millions of hollow microballoon air pockets, foams are lightweight, and enable materials to be manipulated in new and exciting ways. Foam has been used variously to make a type of 3D graphene, form fitting silicone, and […]

3D Printing Industry Review of the year July 2017

July 2017 could be thought of as the “month of medicine” on 3D Printing Industry. Amidst the publication of Gartner’s 3D printing hype cycle, and discussions around net neutrality, individuals and research teams around the world put their heads together to develop cutting edge technology that could improve the quality of healthcare. Revolutions in healthcare […]

Royal Navy unveils 3D printed “Nautilus 100” mothership concept

Earlier this year, the Royal Navy ran the Nautilus 100 challenge together with UK Nest, a not-for-profit Technology forum that “promotes the Engineering, Science and Technology interests of UK Naval Defense”. Scientists, designers, and engineers from across defense and aerospace sectors were tasked with envisioning the future of underwater warfare. 20 participants, aged between 16 […]

Navy’s Disruptive Technology Lab realisiert 3D-gedrucktes U-Boot mit BAAM 3D-Drucker

Das Navy’s Disruptive Technology Lab entwickelte in Kooperation mit dem Oak Ridge National Lab (ORNL) den ersten 3D-gedruckten U-Boot-Rumpf für das US-Militär. In nur wenigen Tagen wurde der knapp neun Meter lange, aus Carbonfaser gefertigte Rumpf auf ORNLs Big Area Additive Manufacturing (BAAM) 3D-Drucker realisiert.  U-Boote herzustellen ist ein kostspieliges Unterfangen. Die Kosten eines Rumpfs für ein tauchfähiges SEAL Delivery Vehicle […]

Oak Ridge release details of the U.S. military’s first 3D-printed submarine

In a partnership with the Navy’s Disruptive Technology Lab, Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) has made the military’s first 3D printed submarine hull.  At 30 feet long, the hull is the Navy’s largest 3D printed asset. It has been made to demonstrate the ability to meet on demand vehicle production as a response to special operations missions. […]

Artec Eva 3D scannt ihr erstes U-Boot

3D Scanning-Technologie wird genutzt, um das kleinste U-Boot in der Flotte des Dritten Reiches zu restaurieren und zu erhalten. Wer kann schon sagen, wie viel kulturelles Erbe von Zeit, Mensch und Natur zerstört wurde? Zahllose Monumente und Artefakte sind für immer verloren, oder sie hinterließen lediglich Spuren in Manuskripten, Büchern, Fotos und den Erinnerungen derer,
