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 […]

Molekularwissenschaften und Engineering-Ansatz sollen zusammen Hürden der Additiven Fertigung überwinden

Laut einer Studie des Institute for Molecular Science and Engineering (IMSE) am Imperial College London soll Grundlagenforschung im Bereich der Molekularwissenschaften gepaart mit dem Engineering-Ansatz für Endanwendungen den nächsten Entwicklungsschritt in der 3D-Druckindustrie ermöglichen. Die wissenschaftliche Arbeit mit dem Titel „The value of additive manufacturing: future opportunities„ wirft einen tiefergehenden Blick auf die Herausforderungen innerhalb […]

Trends in Additive Manufacturing for end-use production with EOS

3D Printing Industry is taking an in depth look at how additive manufacturing is moving to production. Over the coming weeks the results of interviews with industry leading practitioners will be published. This article is part of a series examining Trends in Additive Manufacturing for End-Use Production. Gary Taylor is Regional Manager, UK&I at EOS. […]

ECAM could be the low cost alternative metal 3D printing is looking for

Electrochemical Additive Manufacturing (ECAM) is a new metal 3D printing method in development as a low cost alternative to other techniques such as direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) and selective laser melting (SLM). In place of a high temperature laser for melting metal feedstock, ECAM builds objects using a liquid solution of electrified metal ions, […]

3D printed device studies the life of flies for a better understanding of AI

The Gilestro Lab at Imperial College London specializes in the study of sleep and how it affects our everyday lives. By focusing on this particular aspect of animals and humans, the research seeks to illuminate features of consciousness, asking if and why sleep is a necessary part of life. A complicated concept that crosses the […]

Imperial College London introduces multimaterial 3D printer for alloys, elastomers and resin

Research led by Professor Paul Curtis of Imperial College London and the UK’s Defence Science and Technology Laboratory, presents a 3D printer configured for multimaterial fabrication. The …
