Synchrotron exposes the physics of metal AM with stunning video

Diamond Light Source in Oxfordshire, is the UK’s national synchrotron. A type of particle accelerator, the synchratron is behind some the country’s most cutting edge particle physics research, including the AMAZE collaborative, dubbed “the largest and most ambitious group ever assembled on the topic of Additive Manufacturing.” The University of Manchester (UoM) is one of the 26 […]

3D Printing news Sliced, Shining 3D, Autodesk, Sharebot and Mini

This edition of our 3D printing news digest Sliced asks the following questions: How is 3D printing being used in post cancer surgery for dogs? How are rats and 3D bioprinting being used to repair damaged human diaphragms? How is 3D printing changing automotive design? All this and more from Dassault Systèmes, atum3D, The American Institute of […]

Carnegie Mellon University researchers publish designs for open-source 3D bioprinter

Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University have developed an open-source, low-cost 3D bioprinter. They have published a paper in HardwareX with the complete instructions for the installation of a syringe-based large volume extruder (LVE) on a desktop FDM 3D printer. The LVE allows users to print artificial human tissues at a high resolution and scale. It […]

Studenten entwickeln günstige 3D-gedruckte Handprothese

3d gedruckte handprothese roboterhand 300x212 - Studenten entwickeln günstige 3D-gedruckte Handprothese

Studenten der University of Manchester in Großbritannien haben 3D-Druck eingesetzt, um eine voll funktionsfähige Handprothese zu entwickeln. Die Roboterhand stellt eine leistbare Alternative zu herkömmlichen Prothesen für amputierte Menschen dar. Der Maschinentechnik-Student Alex Agboola-Dobson und sein Team haben eine voll funktionsfähige Roboterhand konstruiert und gebaut. Die einzelnen Bauteile dafür lassen sich kostengünstig am 3D-Drucker herstellen. […]

3D bioprinting deemed an important tool for understanding brain disease

3D bioprinting could be the exact tool that researchers need to discover the cause of Alzheimer’s disease and strokes. Though animal models exist for the purpose of neurovascular research, a technical review written by a team at the University of Manchester in the UK makes the case for human cell models that can be studied […]
