Northwestern University & Argonne National Laboratory Examine Directed Energy Deposition by X-Ray

While the structures produced through 3D printing can be fascinating, tangible, and extremely inspiring—not to mention actually useful—you may still find the operational processes behind the technology to be a little intimidating as it often seems the impossible is being fulfilled with a bit of filament, software, and hardware that may not even be that […]

3D Printing Viscous Materials: Advances Toward 3D Printed Rocket Fuel, Pharmaceuticals, Cookie Dough

3D Printing Viscous Materials: Advances Toward 3D Printed Rocket Fuel, Pharmaceuticals, Cookie Dough

A 3D printed object has to be able to support the weight of its own layers, as objects that are too fluid can collapse under their own weight. That’s why it can be so difficult to 3D print with viscous materials. A fluid’s viscosity is a measure of its resistance to gradual deformation by shear […]

Argonne National Laboratory Researching Metal 3D Printing for Improved Military Applications

The military has been enthusiastically exploring 3D printing applications in a number of areas, from 3D printed drones to submarine hulls. But perhaps the most intriguing applications of 3D printing in the military are those that can be 3D printed right in the field. If servicemembers have the ability to 3D print what they need […]

Powerful X-Rays Put to Use in Study of Physics Behind Metal 3D Printing Process as Researchers Seek to Eliminate Structural Defects

Powerful X-Rays Put to Use in Study of Physics Behind Metal 3D Printing Process as Researchers Seek to Eliminate Structural Defects

From medical tools and aerospace turbines to components for race cars and satellites, it may seem like metal 3D printing can be used to magically make just about anything, for less money and weight. However, we know that the technology is not foolproof, and definitely not magic – issues like micro cracking and spattering abound, and […]

LLNL: Researchers Pressure Test 3D Printed Lattices for Dynamic Load Strength

As 3D printed parts begin to supersede traditional components in a number of sectors from automotive to aerospace and beyond, we expound on the benefits daily. The ability to customize, make smaller batch productions when necessary, allow for self-sustainability in production in the lab or even a developing country, and shaving substantial savings off the […]

New Data Shows That 3D Printed Components Could Cut Aircraft Weight By 7 Percent

New Data Shows That 3D Printed Components Could Cut Aircraft Weight By 7 Percent

The weight of accumulated parts is a critical factor in the aerospace industry’s efforts to build sleeker, lighter and more efficient planes. Shaving every available gram from the equation means manufacturers can save their airline customers fuel and help them cut back on carbon emissions. Eric Masanet, the Morris E Fine junior professor at Northwestern […]

Semiconductor ‘Solder’ to Usher in a New Wave of 3D Printed Electronics

Semiconductor ‘Solder’ to Usher in a New Wave of 3D Printed Electronics

A research effort led by Dmitri Talapin, a chemistry professor at the University of Chicago, has demonstrated how semiconductors could be soldered – and even 3D printed — and still deliver the proper electronic performance. The classical method of manufacturing processes in the silicon industry does not require soldering; instead, engineers create a large silicon crystal which […]
