Self Peeling Droplets: Can Droplet Control Help Improve 3D Printing?

Self Peeling Droplets: Can Droplet Control Help Improve 3D Printing?

MIT researchers Kripa Varanasi, Jolet de Ruiter, and Dan Soto have recently published a paper in Nature Physics detailing how they can control the adhesion of droplets on surfaces. By changing the thermal properties of a surface, the team has found that they can control if the droplet falling onto that surface will stick, bounce […]

Researchers Are Able to Dissolve Support Structures in Metal 3D Printing, Offering Great Potential for Future

Researchers Are Able to Dissolve Support Structures in Metal 3D Printing, Offering Great Potential for Future

Dissolvable supports in 3D printing. It’s music to the ears of anyone who works with this technology in any capacity, well aware of the headaches that using supports can involve—and the lengths that we will go to for eliminating their use—perhaps even skipping certain projects we might otherwise have endeavored to try. Sometimes though, supports […]
