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 […]

Ames Laboratory Develops One-Step 3D Printing Process to Create Customizable, Chemically Active Catalysts

Many industries, from healthcare to aerospace and everything in between, have found ways to use 3D printing, but one area that’s still fairly new is using the technology to control chemical reactions – better known as catalysis. Catalysts are made from metals and ceramics, and can be formed to resemble objects such as gears, wheels, […]

Understanding Bone Cancer Tumors with 3D Printed Scaffolds and Flow Perfusion

Understanding Bone Cancer Tumors with 3D Printed Scaffolds and Flow Perfusion

One year ago, we heard about the work of researchers with Rice University, who used an OpenSLS 3D printer to develop 3D printed lattices for bone tissue engineering. The researchers began their work in late 2015, and have been hard at work studying 3D printed bone tissue scaffolding. Rice bioengineer Antonios Mikos is leading the research […]

New 3D Printing Technology Enhances Performance of Patterned Polymer Membranes

Ion exchange membranes, which are flat sheet-like materials that transport dissolved ions across a conductive polymeric membrane, are utilized in variety of energy applications. Used in fuel cells, particular batteries, water purification, desalination, food processing and much more, these membranes work to transport ions from one solution to another. Researchers from Penn State University’s Department […]

U.S. Air Force Investigates 3D Printed Flexible Hybrid Electronics

U.S. Air Force Investigates 3D Printed Flexible Hybrid Electronics

At the 2015 meeting of the American Chemical Society, Dr. Benjamin Lever introduced research that is being conducted at the Air Force Research Lab at the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in the area of flexible electronics.  The idea being pursued is that flexible semiconductors could be printed directly onto a substrate, such as a flexible polymer-based […]
