Sound and lightwaves manipulated with 3D printed Weyl Sonic Crystal

Physicists from the University of Texas at Dallas (UT Dallas) and China’s Wuhan University have 3D printed polymer rectangular rods to create a Weyl sonic crystal cube capable of reflecting sound. A Weyl sonic crystal is considered a quantum material and acts as an acoustic analogue. Similar to graphene, electrons found on the surface of Weyl particles […]

3D Printing Industry Review of the Year March 2018

In the month we opened voting for the 3D Printing Industry Awards research prevailed, especially in the medical and biomedical sphere. A few companies donned some new 3D printed shoes and, of course, there was a flurry of 3D printer releases to top it all off. Medical innovation straight from the lab At the University of Texas […]

3D printed microneedles present pain-free alternative to syringes

With an FFF 3D printer researchers at the University of Texas at Dallas (UT Dallas) now have a new low-cost method of making microneedle arrays – a small syringe-alternative patch for administering drugs. The method combines a commercially available desktop 3D printer with a chemical etching technique. It enables the creation of ultra-fine microscopic pins in a […]
