Sandia Labs apply design for additive manufacturing to build precision telescope

Using sub-par materials and inaccurate dimensions does not sound like the appropriate start to a precision engineering project. However, a team at Sandia National Laboratories has done just that, and made a functional telescope capable of “seeing” as accurately as one five times the cost. How did they do it? By leveraging the advantages of design […]

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, […]
