Canadian Nuclear Station Using 3D Printing and Virtual Reality to Save Money and Promote Innovation

Canadian Nuclear Station Using 3D Printing and Virtual Reality to Save Money and Promote Innovation

While many may not think about nuclear power as one of the many industries making use of 3D printing, the technology’s ability to save time and money, and offer design freedom, is actually a perfect fit for nuclear power plants. The Rosatom nuclear energy corporation developed Russia’s first industrial metal 3D printer for the nuclear industry last […]

3D Printed Lights and Artificial Intelligence Used in Interactive 'Living Architecture' Structure

A design that takes its cues from natural processes for creation is referred to as biophilic – rather than green design, which is used to keep harm from coming to the environment, biophilic design imitates the processes that allow the natural world to survive. Biophilic design has been used in a 3D printing construction project with living […]

Custom 3D Printed Boluses Increase Efficacy of Radiation Therapy

Custom 3D Printed Boluses Increase Efficacy of Radiation Therapy

As a cancer survivor, I can tell you that radiation is a stressful process. It’s nothing like what I would have imagined, which is not surprising because the sum total of all of my knowledge prior to diagnosis was what I had gleaned from watching grainy black and white movies in which a person/insect was […]

3D Printing in Art and Architecture: Miles Gertler Explores the Familiar and Unfamiliar

Form and function are two important aspects of any design, whether for art or architecture (or anything in between). When bringing that design into the third dimension, 3D printing helps to ensure that the two do not have to be mutually exclusive, as sometimes function can follow form, or vice versa — or the two […]
