XtreeE and Seaboost Give the Sea a Boost with a 3D Printed Coral Reef

Right now is not a great time to be a coral reef. Warming ocean waters are causing bleaching, which is what happens when a coral’s symbiotic microalgae, which give the coral its bright color, die off, causing the coral itself to die. Those warmer temperatures allow for the proliferation of disease, too, and the rising […]

University of Sydney Scientist Uses 3D Modeling to Track Changes in Coral Reefs

It’s an understatement to say that we hear about a lot of ingenious uses of 3D printing on a regular basis. One of my favorites, and one of the most brilliant, in my opinion, is the way that several scientists have used the technology to save endangered coral reefs. We’ve taken a look at the […]

Architect Dr. James Gardiner Revolutionizes Construction and Coral Reefs Through 3D Printing

If you’re not familiar with Dr. James Gardiner, that’s likely to change soon. The Australian architect is gearing up to change the world through 3D printing, revolutionizing everything from skyscrapers to coral reefs. The nature of 3D printing tends to make everyone think big, but Dr. Gardiner thinks even bigger than most. His employer, Laing […]

Will 3D Printed Coral Reefs Help Save the Marine Ecosystem?

Will 3D Printed Coral Reefs Help Save the Marine Ecosystem?

As a native Floridian (yes, they really do exist) with a long family history in the Florida Keys, I am always interested to hear about any program being established to help the massive issues surrounding our rapidly disappearing coral reefs. Did you know that these large, rough slabs of what appear to be white rock […]

Oyster Growers Use 3D Printed Structures to Help Restore New England’s Reef Ecosystem

Oyster Growers Use 3D Printed Structures to Help Restore New England’s Reef Ecosystem

You probably don’t think about oysters very often, even if you happen to enjoy eating them. It turns out that the oyster isn’t single animal, but rather a common name for a wide variety of bivalve mollusks, a type of mollusk with a flat body enclosed by two matching, hinged shells. Some of the more […]
