Using 3D Printing, Lithography & Soft Robotics: New Prosthetic Hands Made for $50 at Cornell

What’s so incredible about the soft robotic hand created by a team at Cornell? It can grip, sort, and sense what it is touching. But what’s truly astounding is the potential it offers in terms of price and prosthetics for the future. Bringing forth further innovation and progress to the world of robotics, at $50 […]

On-the-Fly System from Cornell Puts the 3D Print Preview in Your Hand

Despite the seemingly infinite amount of delight 3D printing already offers to the creative world, the technology and accompanying features just keep getting better and better. And there are a number of designers and engineers out there who are going to be euphoric with the ambition of putting a new 3D printing technique to use soon, thanks […]

ANSYS Aims for Academic Innovation with Student Versions of SpaceClaim and ANSYS Aim Software

As time passes and innovation continues to ensue, more and more companies and educational institutions are working together to groom the next generation of engineers and design-savvy professionals. Both 3D design and printing have become increasingly recognized as a vital part of STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) education, and companies such as MakerBot and Sculpteo have […]

Set the Table & Let’s Eat! Researchers Investigate Viability of 3D Printing in the Hospitality Industry  

Ding, ding, it’s time to eat–says your 3D printer of the future! How would you like your food, as well as the shape of your fork and bowl, prepared? It doesn’t matter how mechanically inclined and obsessed, scientific and intellectual—or the significant level of technogeek—the way to grabbing virtually everyone’s attention is through the stomach—and […]

Cornell Student Wins Fashion Industry Scholarship for Sustainable 3D Printed Clothing Line

Many industries have directly benefited from the inspiring design ideas that seem to spring forth from the minds of people exposed to 3D printing technology. 3D printed clothing remains in an interesting limbo, somewhere between high art and mass produced, ready-to-wear ensembles. Just like all other sectors, as more people learn what can be done […]

Researchers Create a Fully Articulated 3D Printed Soft Robot Octopus Tentacle

I’ll be the first to admit that there is a lot of humor to be had in the fact that scientists 3D printed an articulated tentacle, and trust me the amount of effort required to avoid making shokushu goukan (do not google that) jokes is monumental. But the concepts behind soft robotics are hard to […]

Felix the Sheep Fitted With a 3D Printed Prosthetic Leg

It’s back to Woodstock, and today we aren’t headed down to Yasgur’s farm, but rather to Jenny Brown and Doug Abel’s Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary. These are some lucky farm animals indeed, who despite challenges earlier in their lives, are now cherished and nurtured deep in the Catskill Mountains where peace, love, and happiness made history […]

Cornell University Research Team Devises a Miniscule 3D Printed Spider Harness

3D printing just became the natural ally of every arachnophobe who shivered at the prospect of jumping spiders — as though the ones that scurry out from beneath beds and spontaneously dangle two inches from one’s face were not enough to elicit shudders. Thanks to some neurobiology researchers at Cornell University’s Hoy Lab, there is […]
