MIT 3D Printed Magnets Mimic Real Organisms

Recent findings from the group of researchers at Massachusetts Institute of Technology show magnetic, 3D printed creatures able to move, crawl, sneak, fold and catching objects, with no “strings” attached. MIT produced the magnets from a brand new kind of soft material, which they infused with magnetic particles. These incredibly realistic structures have potential in […]

M3D Unveils The Crane Quad – A New Color Desktop 3D Printer for Under $500

US-based manufacturer M3D has just released their Crane Quad desktop FFF/FDM machine. The printer is reportedly able to mix and print just over 50,000 colors. The colorful cpabilities of the Crane Quad are due to the advent of a specifically designed printhead, the QuadFusion. The printer is capable of blending the CMYK pallet and types […]

WSU Use LENS For Multi-material Metal Printing With Multiple Alloys

With the growth of metal printing in the past few years, it was natural that the next step would be a multi-material approach. Researchers at Washington State University have managed just this feat using Optomec’s LENS technology. The team were looking to improve the qualities of Iconel 718, a space-flight durable super-alloy. The project was […]

DWK Life Sciences Reveals Fully Metal Printed Commercial Labware Product

While metal printing is gaining more prominence, it’s rare to see a product where it is the sole production method. DWK Life Sciences are looking to change that with their new 4-port GL 45 bottle connector cap. Using 3D printing, the entire cap is more efficient and lighter while also minimising the number of processes required to […]
