Limbitless Solutions begins first-of-its-kind clinical trials for 3D printed arms

This week Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) and Limbitless Solutions, a nonprofit organization based at the University of Central Florida (UCF), began “the first U.S. clinical trial of bionic arms for children produced on 3D printers.” A landmark moment for all parties involved, the trials will determine whether Limitbless prosthesis can be certified by […]

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 […]

UCF and UT win $400k for micro 3D printed light-bending research

The University of Central Florida (UCF) and the University of Texas (UT) have won a collaborative research award from the National Science Foundation (NSF). Over the course of three years the NSF will provide the project with $400,049. This money will be used for 3D printing photon funnels. As microscopic lattice-like constructs, photon funnels change the […]
