ORNL 3D prints radioactive isotopes to diagnose America’s surging heart conditions

For the first time in around 30 years, radioactive isotope molybdenum-99 (Mo-99) has been produced in the United Sates – 3D printed at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). Vital to the production of the most commonly used radio-imaging isotope in modern medicine, the 3D printed Mo-99 presents an important step towards commercial production of the material […]

3D printing for power generation boosted by U.S. Department of Energy, GE, Siemens and Sandia

The use of 3D printing for the energy sector is highlighted by two recent pieces of news. The U.S. Department of Energy (DoE) has awarded a total of $7M to projects intended to develop, “advanced, highly efficient, turbine-based technologies for coal-derived synthesis gas, coal-derived hydrogen, and natural gas.” These projects include several featuring additive manufacturing. […]

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 […]

Local Motors receives billion dollar support for Olli 3D printed bus

Teaming up with Florida’s Elite Transportation Services (ETS) and automotive financing firm Xcelerate, Local Motors has secured operational support and money to fund the 3D printed, autonomous Olli shuttle bus. In the terms of the agreement, Olli maintenance, warranty service, insurance, monitoring, management and operations will be outsourced to ETS. For customers of these services, ETS […]
