University researchers develop new method for making 3D printed molds

Researchers at the Institute of Science and Technology Austria & the Institute of Science and Information Technology in Italy have developed a new tool for creating 3D printed molds. The tool automatically finds the best method to design silicone molds, and delivers the templates for what the team are calling ‘metamolds’. Bernd Bickel, heading the […]

Telescoping 3D printed robots developed to help in search & rescue

3D printing has been used to help create a program for exploring the possibilities of objects that can be extended and compacted at will. As a deployable feature that can be added to a variety of shapes the technique has great potential across mechanical and civil engineering to make structures and innovative machines. In robotics, […]
