Metal 3D printing specialist Renishaw has managed to drastically reduce post-processing times for its 3D printed titanium skull implants thanks to an innovative sliding technology developed by Dutch company Rösler.
A pair of scientists from the Technical University of Chemnitz in Germany are using a novel multi-material additive manufacturing process to produce electric motors. By combining 3D printing with CNC machining technology, the team has demonstrated how …
A group of scientists have used 3D modeling and 3D printing to physically recreate (on a tiny scale) the explosion pattern of a star located 25,000 light-years from Earth.
Self-described “bionic pop artist” Viktoria Modesta is taking the art world by storm. The Latvian model, musician, and artist has been making quite the name for herself since 2007, when she her left leg was amputated below the knee.
The use of 3D printing to create new medical devices is on the rise, due mostly to the high potential for customization presented by the technology as well as its relatively cheap production process. The latest development in this field is a 3D printed…
A team of mechanical engineers at McGill University in Montreal are drawing inspiration from the animal kingdom in their development of new 3D printed armours. At first glance, conch shells, fish scales, and spider silk have little to do with bullet-pr…
Think 3D printing is for the birds? Think again. Last week Autodesk unveiled a bold new undertaking to save South Africa’s endangered tortoise population by way of 3D printed replicas. Currently one of the most at-risk tortoise species in the world, South Africa’s fledgling geometric tortoise would be the main beneficiary, and with good reason.
The aerospace sector has been one of 3D printing technology’s main new adopters over the last few years or so, and all kinds of manufacturers and suppliers at every level of the industry have been using additive manufacturing to rethink or even revolutionize the way aircraft are put together.
MIT researchers have developed a technique for 3D printing expanding polymers that self-fold without heating or water. The technique could be used for printed electronics and, someday, to make 3D printed robots.
3D printing is well-known for the many benefits it can […]
