Mediated Matter Group presents 3D printed Aguahoja: “where the grown and the made unite”

Neri Oxman and the Mediated Matter Group at MIT have unveiled a new 3D printing project. In Aguahoja, 3D printed lattices have been “shaped by water” to form large, sculptural chrysalides. Made from cellulose, chitosan and pectin, the pavilions are designed to demonstrate the possibilities of alternative, recyclable construction materials. They also exist as a statement about […]

The tangible impact of MIT’s 3D printed hairs

The MIT Media Lab at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is renowned for applying 3D printing to some of the most unusual and inspired projects. Artist, architect, glass 3D printer and Stratasys partner Neri Oxman leads the lab’s Mediated Matter Group. And Neil Gershenfeld, Director of the lab’s Center for Bits and Atoms, founded Fab Labs. […]

3D Printing Industry research CrAMmed: MIT, National Academy of Engineering, Aalto University, Optomec

As additive manufacturing continues to enable researchers worldwide, CrAMmed, 3D Printing Industry’s academic and AM research digest, shares the latest innovations and literature demonstrating its capabilities. Controlling sounds waves with 3D printing Engineers from Aalto University in Helsinki and collaborators from Duke University in Durham, North Carolina, have used 3D printed tubes to create a […]

MIT presents the G3DP2 platform – a first for architectural scale 3D printed glass

In 2017, Milan Design Week hosted a set of 3 meter tall glass columns made using 3D printing. The product of the latest fabrication experiment of the Mediated Matter Group at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) these relatively large structures demonstrated the architectural potential of an ancient material combined with cutting edge technology. Now, in the […]

Inside the 3D printed pill that livestreams health readings to your doctor

Could you swallow a 3D printed pill that collects data from the inside of your stomach? For two years, a team of researchers based at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have been developing a mini device capable of just that. Called “Gastric Resident Electronics” (GREs) these pills are designed to sit in the stomach […]

MIT Implosion Fabrication 3D printing makes short work of microscopic objects

A collaboration between the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard, has produced a new 3D printing-powered micro fabrication technique. Termed “Implosion Fabrication” or “ImpFab” the method takes a leaf out of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, shrinking 3D printed objects down to size. Shrinking objects to 10 times […]

Mimaki joins ADAPT, MIT’s 3D printing development initiative

Mimaki Engineering, a Japanese inkjet printer manufacturer, has joined MIT’s Center for Additive and Digital Advanced Production Technologies (ADAPT) as a founding member.   Yasuhiro Haba, Mimaki’s Executive General Manager of Sales Division, said, “Working towards ADAPT’s vision for the amalgamation and evolution of AM technology and digital production, Mimaki will continue to contribute to […]

Protolabs joins MIT’s new center for Additive and Digital Advanced Production Technologies

Protolabs, a manufacturing and 3D printing service bureau based in Minnesota, has become a founding member of the new Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Center for Additive and Digital Advanced Production Technologies (ADAPT). ADAPT focuses on scaling new manufacturing technology through research; ts consortium consists of Renishaw, Autodesk, Volkswagen, Bosch, Formlabs, BigRep, Mimaki, Dentsply Sirona, General […]

MIT-Entwicklungen: Ein schnellerer 3D-Drucker und antibakterielle 3D-gedruckte Zellulose

Adam Stevens und John Hart 300x200 - MIT-Entwicklungen: Ein schnellerer 3D-Drucker und antibakterielle 3D-gedruckte Zellulose

Stellen Sie sich eine Welt vor, in der Objekte in wenigen Minuten hergestellt und an die jeweilige Aufgabe angepasst werden können. Ein Erfinder mit einer Idee für ein neues Produkt könnte einen Prototyp entwickeln, der während einer Kaffeepause getestet wird. Ein Unternehmen könnte Teile und Produkte, auch komplexe, in Massenproduktion herstellen, ohne an teilespezifische Werkzeuge [...]

MIT uses AI and 3D printing to reproduce classic art works

Researchers at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL), Massachusetts, have made a system to reproduce paintings with the help of 3D printing and Artificial Intelligence (AI). RePaint, the reproductions tool made by the CSAIL team reproduces accurate colors even in differing light conditions. Changil Kim, a postdoctoral fellow and part of the project […]
