Novel Approach to Optimizing Soft Material 3D Printing Detailed in New Research Paper

Novel Approach to Optimizing Soft Material 3D Printing Detailed in New Research Paper

When it comes to 3D printing materials, from metals and self-folding plastics to biomaterials like soft tissue, the researchers at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) know their stuff. Now, a research team from the university’s College of Engineering has created a novel approach to optimizing soft material 3D printing, which can be tricky due to the fact that many parameters […]

TU Delft Examines Innovative 3D Printable Metamaterials with Applications in Soft Robotics

TU Delft Examines Innovative 3D Printable Metamaterials with Applications in Soft Robotics

A group of materials scientists from the Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) have been working on a project that introduces the interesting concept of 3D printable “action-at-a-distance” metamaterials, which could one day be used in wearable soft robotics. Mechanical metamaterials are a sub-category of designer materials, where the synthetic material’s geometry at the small […]

Cryogenics and 3D Printing Used to Create Super-Soft Replicas of Biological Structures for Tissue Regeneration

Cryogenics and 3D Printing Used to Create Super-Soft Replicas of Biological Structures for Tissue Regeneration

Researchers with Imperial College London (ICL) have developed a new 3D printing technique for creating replicas of biological structures, which could potentially be used for tissue regeneration, and even replica organs. Scaffold use is becoming more common in the medical field, and we are more frequently hearing about 3D printing technology in combination with tissue […]

UC San Diego Researchers’ Soft Robot Can Walk Over Rough Terrain with Four 3D Printed Legs

We’ve seen some pretty fascinating 3D printing research in the medical field out of the University of California San Diego over the last couple of years, like a 3D printed blood vessel network and 3D printed liver tissue. But recently, a mechanical engineering professor from UC San Diego has been hard at work on his […]

3D Printing Conductive Food — Professor Powers Up LEDS With Edible, Conductive Vegimite

3D Printing Conductive Food — Professor Powers Up LEDS With Edible, Conductive Vegimite

Vegemite has been around for a long, long time. If you live in Australia, you know it as a staple. When you lay out the ingredients in a list, it sounds disgusting, but apparently those breakfasting down under have a professed taste for this yeasty paste that also includes some veggie spices and additives to […]
