Researchers at Tsinghua University Describe How Nanodroplets Deform Upon Surface Strike, Potential to Improve 3D Printing

The demand for, and interest in, nanotechnology is growing, which means that a reliance on nanoscale (one billionth of a meter) printing is not going away. Researchers at ORNL developed a guided simulation process to improve 3D printing at the nanoscale this summer, and Nanoscribe recently 3D printed optics at the nanoscale. While research continues on […]

Sculpteo Performs Elastic Modulus Measurement Tests on 3D Printing Materials

While there is a great deal about 3D printing that can be highly artistic and intuitive in nature, there is also a vital portion of it that requires and celebrates precision and technical achievement. In order to produce something to a very exacting, pre-planned specification, you have to know to a very precise degree the […]

Artist Marcy Milks 3D Prints 20,000 Figures to Populate an Art Installation

At first sight, the teeming white figures seem to represent the active citizenry of a metropolis, all out and on their way about their daily lives. However, get closer and you realize that these are no ordinary creatures. Each is nearly human and some are partly so. Some have limbs that grow like tentacles while others are […]

The Body Beautiful: Amazing 3D Printed Variations of Venus de Milo are Fabricated

The statue of Venus de Milo, on display in the Louvre, embodies the ancient Greek ideals of beauty. That connotation has remained so strong that for a time its image was included in the seal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. The very idea that there is a most perfect form of beauty is […]
