Improving 3D Printing Materials with PLA/Graphene/Multi-Walled Carbon Nanotube Composites

Researchers from all over the world have come together to further the study of materials science in 3D printing, with their findings recently published in ‘PLA/Graphene/MWCNT Composites with Improved Electrical…

3D Printed Nanocomposite Can Self-Heal Damage Once Exposed to Room Temperature Water Vapor

A group of researchers from Canada’s Research Center for High Performance Polymer and Composite Systems (CREPEC) at the Polytechnique Montréal recently submitted a paper, titled “3D Printing of Self-Healing and Stretchable…

Comparing FDM 3D Printed Parts with Carbon Nanotubes, Continuous Carbon Fiber and Short Carbon Fiber

Fused deposition modeling, or FDM, 3D printing has several advantages – thermoplastics can be used, which are easy to handle and are strong and durable enough to be used for…

Electrically Conductive PEEK Composites for FDM 3D Printing

Fused deposition modeling (FDM) is a 3D printing method that can easily meet the requirements for small series industrial manufacturing. However, there aren’t a lot of commercially available materials that…

Are Carbon Nanotube Filaments a Health Risk?

For a number of years I’ve been concerned with potential health risks from breathing in fumes from Fused Depostion Modeling (FDM, also called FFF, Fast Filament Fabrication and Material Extrusion)…

4D Printing Technique Could Be Used to Develop 3D Printed Human Organs for Transplant Patients

Often, when someone receives a life-saving organ transplant, this unfortunately means that another person recently lost their own life to provide it. But there are many researchers currently working to…

Researchers Combine Carbon Nanotubes and Nanocellulose to 3D Print Conductive Microfibers

3D printing technology can only go as far as the different materials that are able to be printed…but from metal and plastic to sand and even food, I don’t think…

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…

Researchers Use 3D Printing Technology and Chemistry to Develop a Way to Power Wearable Electronics Using Human Sweat

Sometimes, if the weather is nice and I’m feeling motivated enough, I’ll go for a brisk walk around the neighborhood, but I can’t make it very far if I don’t…
