We also have the latest updates from Carbon, SLM Solutions, Filamentive and PostProcess Technologies. Read on for this and more regarding […]

UK researchers develop 3D printed crystal inspired metamaterials for more damage-tolerant parts

Researchers from the University of Sheffield and Imperial College London (ICL) are exploring crystallographic microstructures in metallic alloys to improve the durability of 3D printed parts. As a result of this research, the team has developed ‘meta-crystals’ that incorporate novel lattice compositions, mimicking the structure of a single crystal – a material in which the […]

UCL combats breastfeeding difficulties in babies with 3D printed sensor

Researchers from University College London (UCL), Imperial College London (ICL), and Universitá Campus Bio-Medico di Roma have developed a 3D printed device to study the sense of touch in babies. In doing so, the research hopes to yield insights into reasons why some newborn babies have difficulty breastfeeding. Etienne Burdet, Professor of Human Robotics in […]

3D printed membrane-feeder equips labs for fight against malaria

Malaria is an infectious disease caused by microscopic parasites (called Plasmodium) transmitted through the bite of a female mosquito. According to UNICEF, a child dies of malaria every two minutes. To combat the spread of malaria and support the development of vaccines, scientists use Standard Membrane-Feeding Assay (SMFA) tests which measure the ability of antibodies […]

Imperial College London commences summer-long hackathon for inventors

Imperial College London (ICL), who previously released a report on the importance of additive manufacturing within molecular sciences and engineering, has launched a summer hackathon program for college inventors. The Summer of Hack, which officially commenced yesterday, will offer grants, competitions, and a variety of opportunities for the Imperial College Advanced Hackspace (ICAH) community that […]

MX3D’s 3D printed steel bridge gets smart and sensitive

Later in 2018, the Oudezijds Achterburgwal canal in Amsterdam is set to be graced with a 12 meter long 3D printed steel bridge, made by Robotic Additive Manufacturing (RAM) technology developer MX3D. Constructed using ABB robotic arms and WAAM technology, after installation the company has confirmed that a second, digital, bridge construction project will begin. MX3D […]

Forscher stellen biologische Strukturen mit Hilfe von Kryotechnik und 3D-Druck her

Wissenschaftler des Imperial College London und Kings College London haben eine neue Methode entwickelt, mit der sich besonders weiche biologische Strukturen herstellen lassen. Das Verfahren kombiniert Tieftemperaturtechnik mit 3D-Druck und könnte zukünftig genutzt werden um Organe herzustellen. Bei dem neuen Verfahren wird das vom 3D-Drucker extrudierte Hydrogel umgehend mit Trockeneis gekühlt. Nach dem Auftauen verfügt […]

Freeze – Imperial College London 3D prints soft tissues using cryogenics

The main challenge of synthetic tissue is fabricating it in a way that tricks the body into believing that it has been there all along. As a recent preprint from Stanford University shows, even CRISPR gene editing isn’t entirely safe from the body’s immune system, though many other regenerative medicine therapies have already been tried […]

Imperial 3D printing report calls for bridge between science and engineering

A report from the Institute for Molecular Science and Engineering (IMSE) at Imperial College London details a vision for the future of additive manufacturing. The briefing, launched at Imperial’s new White City campus, notes that 3D printing requires advances in software, machines, automation and standards for wider adoption. A key driver of these innovations, as suggested by […]
