Using Casting, Graphene, and SLM 3D Printing to Create Bioinspired Cilia Sensors

  What Mother Nature has already created, we humans are bound to try and recreate; case in point: biological sensors. Thanks to good old biomimicry, researchers have made their own…

Electrospinning Fibers for Better Success in 3D Printing Biomimetic Scaffolds

In ‘Three-dimensional printed electrospun fiber-based scaffold for cartilage regeneration,’ Chinese researchers attempt to improve on processes for creating better materials and customized geometries in bioprinting. Here, they not only employ…

Kyushu University: 4D Printing Magnetic Soft Actuators

Japanese researchers from Kyushu University have created a 4D printer for magnetic soft actuators, outlining their research in the recently published paper ‘Bio-Mimic Motion of 3D-Printed Gel Structures Dispersed with…

Researchers Use Biomimicry and 3D Printing to Develop Robotic Fish

3D printed robotic fish have all sorts of applications, from underwater data acquisition and detecting toxins in the water to studying and saving real fish, or just adding a new pet…

Making Stronger Protective Gear: Researchers Replicate Biological Structure of Lobster Claws Using Electric-Assisted 3D Printing Process

A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association last month found that chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), which results from repeated blows to the head, was found in 99% of the…

3D Bioprinted Liver Tissue Constructs Used to Develop More Accurate Drug Toxicity Testing System

While many think that bioprinting means that we’ll soon be able to 3D print a brand new organ with the touch of a button, that’s not the case quite yet….

3D Printed Photoresponsive Sunflower Could Have Applications in Soft Robotics and Biomedical Devices

It’s no secret that receiving flowers from someone can brighten your day – it’s nice to know that the other person is thinking of you, most flowers have a lovely…

Researchers Turn to 3D Printing and a Unique Flying Fish to Improve the Design of Tandem Wing Airplanes

Biomimicry, according to the Biomimicry Institute, is the search for sustainable solutions to human problems by mimicking solutions that are already found in nature. This practice has been coupled with…

Conch’s Strength Inspires MIT Researchers to 3D Print Stronger Protective Gear

As a kid growing up in Florida, I was always thrilled to find a conch shell intact, washed up on the shore. My grandmother had an enormous collection of them on her sunny…
