Elektrisch unterstützter 3D-Druck von Perlmutt-inspirierten Strukturen mit Selbsterkennungsfunktion

Wissenschaftler der University of Southern California (USC) nutzen den 3D-Druck, um das Potenzial intelligenter Metamaterialien zu untersuchen. Zusammen mit der aus Stein und Mörtel bestehenden Struktur aus hochfestem Perlmutt und elektrisch leitfähigem Graphen hat das Team die Fähigkeit gezeigt, selbstabfühlende Rüstungen zu schaffen. Ein kürzlich in einem kleinen Experiment mit einer LEGO-Figur bewiesenes Dokument zeigt, [...]

USC electric field 3D printing method makes graphene smart armor

Scientists from the University of Southern California (USC) are using 3D printing to investigate the the potential of smart metamaterials. Adding the brick-and-mortar structure of high-strength nacre (aka mother of pearl) to electrically conductive graphene, the team have demonstrated the ability to create self-sensing armor. Proven in a small-scale experiment with a LEGO figurine, a recent paper […]

Broken shoe? USC’s self-healing 3D printer material can help it repair itself

Researchers at the University of Southern California (USC) have developed a 3D printed rubber material that has the ability to repair itself. The elastomer has the potential to decrease manufacturing time and increase longevity for the likes of shoes, tires, soft robotics and electronics. The self-healable materials were 3D printed using a customized photopolymerization process. […]

Think before you 3D print: DIY orthodontics receive warning from USC

Experts from the Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry at the University of Southern California (USC) have expressed concerns about businesses offering direct-to-customer 3D printed aligner services. The worry with such services is that patients are missing out on crucial care steps provided by a one-to-one consultation with an orthodontist. This can include jaw x-rays, and […]

USC explores how 3D printed “egg-beaters” could clean up oil slicks

Using 3D printing, scientists at the University of Southern California are able to replicate the microscopic structure of plants found in tropical areas of America, Eurasia and Africa. With hydrophobic leaves, the Salvinia genus, commonly known as Watermoss, has the capability of micro manipulating droplets of water. Secret egg-beaters The secret to Salvinia’s remarkable magic trick is […]

New home of Dr. Dre university school to include 3D printing and scanning

Iovine and Young Hall is the new home for the Jimmy Iovine and Andre Young Academy Arts, Technology and the Business of Innovation, a new institute at the University of Southern California (USC). The facility, Supported by music producer Jimmy Iovine and rapper and entrepreneur Dr. Dre (Andre Young), is now under construction following a […]

Mask-Image-Projection-Based Stereo-lithography (MIP-SL) soll 3D-Drucker schneller machen

Die University of Southern California (USC) möchte mit MIP-Stereolithografie 3D-Druck deutlich beschleunigen. Das additive Produktionsverfahren Stereolithografie verwendet üblicherweise eine punktförmige Lichtquelle um flüssiges, lichtempfindliches Photopolymer in ein 3-Dimensionalen Objekt zu verwandeln. Das Photopolymer kristalliert bei Belichtung und kann so schichtweise zu einem Objekt gehärtet werden. Bereits letztes Jahr entwickelte das Institut mit dem verbesserten “Mask […]
