3D Printed Sensors Could Offer Earlier Warning of Wildfires and Chemical Leaks

3D Printed Sensors Could Offer Earlier Warning of Wildfires and Chemical Leaks

A forest fire can spread unbelievably fast, which means that early detection is critical. The current systems in place for detecting the spread of forest fires, however, aren’t perfect. Watch towers, satellites and costly fixed sensors are the standard at the moment, but a group of researchers from King Abdullah University of Science and Technology […]

Researchers Develop Technique to 3D Print Flexible, Electronic Sensory Devices, Bringing Us One Step Closer to Printing on Human Skin

Researchers have been working hard to create 3D printed robotic prosthetic hands that look, and feel like, a real human hand; a team at the University of Wollongong developed a prosthetic hand that has an interface that, when placed on a person’s arm muscles, gives it a sense of touch. But engineering researchers at the […]

Welsh Researchers Use Optomec Aerosol Jet Technology to 3D Print Hair-Sized Sensors

Welsh Researchers Use Optomec Aerosol Jet Technology to 3D Print Hair-Sized Sensors

We hear a lot about 3D printing being used in aerospace, usually to print larger components. But researchers at Swansea University in Wales are finding that it’s also very useful in printing the smallest parts of an aircraft. The university’s Welsh Centre for Printing and Coating (WCPC) have been working with Optomec’s Aerosol Jet technology to print […]

The Stories We Didn't Cover This Week -- August 8, 2015

There are some weeks that this review covers mainly hardware, software, and business news. And then there’s weeks in 3D printing news where printed and printable items dominate. This week’s news reads like a catalog of 3D printed/printable items: an elephant bottle; a smart cooler; parenting sensor gadgets; a pinhole camera; and a battery tester […]

Oregon State University Researchers Turn to 3D Printing to Help Manage Diabetes

Oregon State University Researchers Turn to 3D Printing to Help Manage Diabetes

It can be you, or your family member, neighbor, coworker, or friend — but odds are, you know someone affected by diabetes. The International Diabetes Federation puts current estimates of diabetics across the world at 387 million, and expects to see that number increase to 592 million within the next two decades. Type 1 diabetes can […]

3D Printed Electronics Move Forward as Optomec Unveils New Aerosol Jet 5X System

Some of the most exciting future applications for 3D printing involve the high precision fabrication of integrated electronics within objects. Imagine being able to 3D print an entire electronic device, with all the sensors and antennas incorporated into that device, and doing it in one single piece. Such a technique could cut down on the weight […]

Researchers 3D Print Electrically Conductive Strain Sensors

It is amazing how quickly 3D printing technology has been advancing. The advancements we have seen from the time Chuck Hull invented the process of stereolithography in 1983 until the early 2000’s, pales in comparison to the progress we have seen in just the last few years. When Chuck Hull invented 3D printing, I’m sure […]
