University of Leeds project is developing tarmac 3D printing robots to repair roads

The University of Leeds is pioneering a £4.2 million national infrastructure research project that will use tarmac 3D printing robots to repair potholes and cracks. These robots will be both aerial and ground-based in order to thoroughly inspect and identify damaged areas on roads in the UK. As part of a visionary project to create “Self […]

3D printed clay scaffolding shows promise for cell growth and drug delivery

Laponite, a synthetic clay that becomes a clear gel in water, has been used to make a bioink for 3D printing powered medical studies. Commonly used as a thickener in cosmetics, the clay is a novel addition to hydrogels used as a habitable environment for stem cells, and biodegradable containers for controlled drug delivery. In […]

Biotinte basierend auf Tonerde verbessert 3D-Bioprinting mit Zellen

Forscher der University of Southampton und der Technischen Universität Dresden haben eine Biotinte basierend auf Laponit-Ton entwickelt, um damit menschliche mesenchymale Stammzellen am 3D-Bioprinter zu drucken. Hauptbestandteil der neu entwickelten Biotinte neben Alginat und Methylcellulose ist Laponit, ein synthetisches Silikatadditiv, das scherabhängige Viskosität verleiht und so die Kontrolle über den Druckprozess sowie die Stabilität der […]

University of Southampton 3D printers solve million year old flipper mystery

In a story reminiscent of the mythical Loch Ness Monster, researchers at the University of Southampton in the UK have used 3D printing to uncover facts about the plesiosaur, that swam in oceans around 203 million years ago. Though many other creatures swim using similar appendages, the fact that has always puzzled paleontologists is how […]
