Powerful New 4D Printer Speeds Next-Generation, Next-Dimension 3D Printing

3D printed objects that can move and change shape are technically 4D printed – the fourth dimension comes in the object’s ability to change shape when exposed to environmental stimuli like heat, humidity, and/or light, and then revert back to its original form. At this week’s National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society […]

TU Wien Spin-Off Introduces Novel 3D Printing Materials, Hot Lithography Process, New 3D Printer

While 3D printing technology has been responsible for many advances and inventions over the years, it’s not foolproof – some methods don’t produce items with the best material properties, and others result in surfaces that are rough and unclean. The Vienna University of Technology, better known as TU Wien, is responsible for many innovations in […]

Studying How Disease Metastasizes Using a Lifelike Cancer Environment Created with 3D Jet Writing

It’s probably safe to say that most people have been affected by cancer in one way or another, whether in being diagnosed themselves or watching a loved one battle the disease. There are researchers who are working to detect cancer using 3D printed devices, but it’s not always fast enough. The technology has also been called […]

3D Printing Put to Use to Create More Sensitive Strain Gauges for High-Temperature Applications

3D Printing Put to Use to Create More Sensitive Strain Gauges for High-Temperature Applications

What’s one major thing that airplanes, bridges, and weigh stations have in common? If you answered strain gauges, you were right. These simple devices measure the strain, or pull, on an object. The resistance of an object will change as you apply deformation to (stretch) the strain gauge, which will then tell you how much […]

Metal 3D Printed Parts Can Be Both Strong and Ductile, According to New Collaborative Research

Metal 3D Printed Parts Can Be Both Strong and Ductile, According to New Collaborative Research

Plenty of 3D printing research has been completed over the years on metal materials, which are decidedly strong. One adjective we also hear when describing metal 3D printing materials is ductile, meaning the ability to deform under tensile stress. Usually we talk about metal as being either one or the other, but typically not both, […]

The New Kid on the Bloc — Reactive Inkjet Printing

Additive manufacturing (3D printing) has a potential to revolutionize almost every aspect of human endeavor. Currently there are a handful of techniques that allow us to form objects via addition of material. Most commonly used techniques utilize material prepared before printing. Which is deposited and either melted, sintered or hardened to form desired product. Among […]

NC State Researchers Look to the Structural Stability of Sand Castles to Develop New 3D Printing Method for Silicone Paste

The other day I was walking through a local outdoor mall, and noticed that several wooden platforms had been set up. The platforms weren’t empty: each one contained a rather large pile of sand. I then realized that I was walking through what would soon be a giant sand art competition; I’m hoping to go […]

Zurich Researchers Build Tiny Redox Flow Battery, Supplied with Electrolytes Thanks to 3D Printing

Scientists and researchers from ETH Zurich and IBM Research Zurich have built an extremely small redox flow battery – it’s only around 1.5mm thick, and can potentially provide energy to tightly packed electronic components, while at the same time dissipating the heat that’s produced by these components. Redox means reduction-oxidation, and the redox flow battery […]

Since discovering the world of the internet decades ago, I’ve long been a fan of webinars, podcasts, and the variety of educational tools to be found—often to my amazement—and generally free of charge. Webinars especially offer an opportunity to avail yourself of information, often quite valuable, without having to drive to a class or fly to a […]
