This week was chock-full of exciting 3D printing news, especially for the medical industry. Not only did Materialise achieve FDA approval for its medical 3D printing software, but Open Bionics also made a world first with its Hero Arm. Read more stories below:
Auf Kundenanfragen wurde eine Lampenabdeckung der Eicher 3000er Serie rekonstruiert. Das vorliegende Originalteil wurde mittels 3D Scan digitalisiert. Hierbei kam unser David SLS System zum Einsatz. Im Anschluss folgte eine intensive Nachbearbeitung mit diversen CAD Systemen. Via 3D Druck im FDM-Verfahren entstand ein neues Teil mit hoher UV- und Temperaturbeständigkeit, schlagzäh und rostfrei. Eine Serie […]
Der Beitrag Rekonstruktion nicht mehr erhältlicher Oldtimerteile im Bereich Traktoren erschien zuerst auf 3Druck.com – Das Magazin für 3D-Drucktechnologien.
Researchers from the University of Southern California have drawn inspiration from nature for the development of materials that could help clean up oil spills. The team has used 3D printing to recreate the microstructure composition of floating fern leaves for this purpose.
Curious what’s inside your Easter chocolate? Scientists at the UK’s University of Manchester have used X-Ray Computer Tomography to scan a chocolate Easter bunny, an Easter egg, a Toblerone, a Crème Egg, a Kit Kat, Maltesers, Ferrero Rocher, and a Double Decker bar.
Australia-based startup cultivate3D has launched a Kickstarter campaign for its large-format 3D printer: the Beast V2. The 3D printer, which is the second generation of the startup’s 2015 release, has already raised over $34,000—far exceeding its crowdfunding goal.
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory has released a video depicting a 3D visualization of melting snowflakes in the atmosphere. The 3D model could lead to a better understanding of how snow melts and thus improved hazard prevention.
Joris van Tubergen, the Dutch industrial design engineer who created the Z-Unlimited add-on for Ultimaker 3D printers, has created a device for 3D printing on eggs. It’s the perfect 3D printer accessory for Easter!
Open Bionics, a UK-based developer of low-cost 3D printed prosthetic hands, has received some exciting news from the National Health Service (NHS). The company’s Hero Arm has become the first ever medically approved 3D printed bionic arm and will be available for purchase across the UK starting April 25, 2018.
A group of students from the University of Manchester is lending a helping hand by designing a low-cost 3D printed robotic hand. The 3D printed prosthetic can be made for as little as £307 ($430), and is capable of performing a range of functions.
Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University have developed an open-source, low-cost 3D bioprinter. They have published a paper in HardwareX with the complete instructions for the installation of a syringe-based large volume extruder (LVE) on a desktop FDM 3D printer. The LVE allows users to print artificial human tissues at a high resolution and scale. It […]
