MIT’s 3D-gedruckte Magnet-Strukturen könnten Anwendung in Biomedizin finden

MITs 3D gedruckte Magnet Strukturen könnten Anwendung in Biomedizin finden 300x200 - MIT's 3D-gedruckte Magnet-Strukturen könnten Anwendung in Biomedizin finden

Forscher des Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) entwarfen und 3D-druckten weiche sowie mechanische „Lebewesen“, welche sich anhand von Magnetwellen fortbewegen. Diese können Bewegungen wie springen, kriechen, rollen und sogar fangen spielen ausführen. Diese mechanischen „Lebewesen“ sind im Grunde genommen magnetisch manipulierte Strukturen. Zu diesen zählt ein glatter Ring, welcher sich zusammenfalten kann, ein langes, sich [...]

Watch MIT’s 3D printed walking, drug-transporting magnets

The latest findings from a team of researchers at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) show magnetic, 3D printed creatures capable of rolling, crawling, creeping, folding and catching objects, without any “strings” attached. Made from a new type of soft material, these incredibly lifelike structures have virtually limitless potential in intelligent robot development, especially within the […]

3D printing in construction, architecture and the built-environment

The use of 3D printing for construction and architecture is a rapidly developing area. Additive manufacturing is used not only in the design stages of construction projects, but is also bringing remarkable full-scale structures to life.  This article highlights some of the possibilities that 3D printing brings to the built-environment. These include 3D printed houses, […]

MIT’s 3D printed Roboats are independently making their way to Amsterdam

Blowing driverless cars out of the water – an autonomous fleet of boats developed at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) has undergone a number of important updates. Now 3D printable, the so-called Roboats, are one step closer to introduction on the world’s rivers and canals. Transporting and self-assembling at scale The Roboat project […]

Egyptian Civilisations brought to life for the BBC at Fab Lab Warrington

Egyptian artifacts discovered in the Valley of the Kings have been faithfully recreated by 3D printing at Fab Lab Warrington. A series of canopic jars, used to preserve organs for the afterlife, and other ancients objects were made as part of a festival held by the BBC that saw museums up and down the country come […]

Allevi 1 collagen 3D bioprinter technical specifications and pricing

Allevi, the 3D bioprinting company formerly known as BioBots, has launched the Allevi 1 3D bioprinter. Capable of 3D printing with collagen, protein inks, and biopolymers like PLGA, the new system is a versatile tool for laboratories, helping to spread Allevi’s mission of making 3D tissue engineering easier, and more accessible. The perfect lab tool […]

Metal 3D printing makes the cut in MIT Tech Review’s top ten tech list

Metal 3D printing is listed as one of the top 10 Breakthrough Technologies of 2018 by the MIT Technology Review, the online and in-print magazine published by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The list has been curated by Tech Review editors since 2001, and previously featured (in 2016 and 2017) the emergence of gene editing, alongside […]

Cornell presents foundations of collaborative human-robot 3D printing

The next industrial revolution (Industry 4.0) will be led by cyber-physical systems (CPS) integrating computation, networking, and manual processes. To this end, factories will rely more an more on collaboration between human employees and robots. In a recent interview Sören Papsdorf, Head of Manufacturing Engineering at KUKA, said that he believed human-robot collaboration is “the […]
