What microCT Scanning Can Do for Additive Manufacturing

X-ray microcomputed tomography (microCT) has become widely used as a way to analyze and test additively manufactured parts, particularly for dimensional measurement and porosity analysis. In a paper entitled “X-Ray…

Do Higher Print Temperatures Lead to Better FDM PLA 3D Printed Parts?

Many factors impact the quality of 3D printed parts, and as the technology is used more and more for production of final parts rather than just prototyping, it is necessary…

Examining the Effectiveness of CT Metrology for Measuring Manufactured Parts

X-ray computed tomography, also known as CT or CAT scan, has been used for years in the medical field. More recently, manufacturers have begun using it to measure a part’s…

Researchers Develop and Test 3D Printed Simulator for Neuraxial Anesthesia Training To Help Make Your Next Epidural or Surgery Safer

It’s always easier for doctors, surgeons, and nurses to perform a procedure on a patient if they’ve practiced it a time or two. We’ve seen 3D printed medical simulators for…

CT Scanning Proves to be an Effective Method for Qualifying 3D Printed Parts

Many things can go wrong with an additively manufactured part, and those things are not always visible. Particularly in powder-based 3D printing, there are several things that can happen during…

INTERAQCT Project Works to Improve CT for Quality Testing of 3D Printed Parts

Quality control is a necessity in manufacturing, but it’s not always easy – especially when it comes to advanced manufacturing techniques, which can result in complex internal geometries that aren’t…

Using 3D Technologies to Examine Rare Specimens of the Extinct Tasmanian Tiger

In 1936, the last known Tasmanian Tiger died in captivity at Hobart Zoo; locked out of its shelter, it was unable to survive the extreme daytime heat and below-freezing nighttime…

3D Images of 20,000 Vertebrates Open Source with oVert Museum Specimen Initiative

While 3D scanning has been used to solve a murder case and recreate a metal passenger aircraft, among other things, it’s really making a positive impact for museums. But I’m…

Recreating Ancient Heritage Through 3D Printing

In the 19th century, an Austrian mine operator named Johann Georg Ramsauer working near Hallstatt, Austria encountered a sizable prehistoric cemetery containing more than 1,000 burial sites. The graves were…
