Researchers Improve Upon Trabecular Bone-Inspired 3D Printing Infill with New Algorithm

Whenever someone picks up one of the various 3D prints I have on my desk, they usually exclaim over how light it is. While a lot of that has to do with the fact that all of my prints are pretty small, it’s also thanks to the infill pattern and percentage; for instance, my 3D […]

3D Printed Bacteria Could Lead to 3D Printed Electronics in Space, Say TU Delft Researchers

3D Printed Bacteria Could Lead to 3D Printed Electronics in Space, Say TU Delft Researchers

It seems as though we can 3D print with just about anything these days – glass, sand, food substances, human cells, you name it – but one substance I never would have thought to put into a 3D printer is bacteria. The first question that might come into most people’s minds is, “Well, why would you?” […]

Researchers Optimize Robust, Lightweight, Bone-Inspired 3D Printing Infill

There’s so much more that goes into a 3D print than many people realize. To those unfamiliar with how the process works, it looks like simple magic – but there are a lot of factors that go into the process of turning a design into a physical 3D object, and a lot of decisions to […]

TU Delft Students Develop New Technique for 3D Printing Soft Robotics

TU Delft Students Develop New Technique for 3D Printing Soft Robotics

I find soft robotics to be utterly fascinating. While the technology has been around for a while, it’s recently begun to really advance in unprecedented ways – thanks in part to 3D printing. The ability of 3D printing has enabled soft, polymer-based materials to be developed and used in ways that were never possible before, and […]

Self-Folding Medical Implants Combine 3D Printing & Origami

Self-Folding Medical Implants Combine 3D Printing & Origami

Origami can be nearly magical, but there’s more to it than artistry; there is also some highly complex mathematics. As with so many artistic endeavors, it turns out there are contributions far beyond aesthetics to be gleaned from the act of creating origami. So much so that there are faculty at MIT, for example, who […]

Columbia Professor Hod Lipson Leads the Food 3D Printing Revolution with New Printer Prototype

There are numerous types of 3D printing technologies that are sure to make your eyes wide and mind wonder, but none of them will get your stomach rumbling like food 3D printing. This year may be finally the year that we start seeing 3D printed edible arrangements popping up in our everyday lives. Researchers have been working […]

Dutch Students Create a Unique 3D Printed Metal Bicycle with Help from MX3D

Dutch Students Create a Unique 3D Printed Metal Bicycle with Help from MX3D

It looks like something Spiderman might have built – a bike made of strong, silvery webbing somehow holding together tires, seat, and handlebars. In actuality it was created by a group of Dutch college students – not superhuman, perhaps, but ingenious all the same. Harry Anderson, Stef de Groot, Ainoa Areso Rossi, Sjoerd van de […]

The 3D Printed Soft Robotics Hand Will Respond to Human Grip

The 3D Printed Soft Robotics Hand Will Respond to Human Grip

Robots have already become an indispensable part of our lives. Everything from a Roomba to the automatic drink machine at McDonald’s and even the 3D printers that I write about every day are all remarkably sophisticated robotics. But those are just the tip of the robotic iceberg, for instance, most of the consumer products that […]

The Stories We Didn't Cover This Week -- September 26

The Stories We Didn't Cover This Week -- September 26

In this week’s stories we didn’t cover we have many examples of just how innovative 3D printing can be. For example, the still in-production Bloodhound Super-Sonic car has many 3D printed parts that will hopefully help it break the world land speed record in 2016. New Zealand has committed millions of dollars for new technology research […]

Now Available Outside the Netherlands: 3D Printed EXO-L Prevents Sprained Ankles

If you’re an athlete who spends much time on your feet, then you’ve probably been concerned at one time or another–or in an ongoing way–about the stress to your ankles posed by your active lifestyle. Most athletes have at the least sprained an ankle once or twice. It’s the twice or more sprains that can […]

TU Delft Assistant Professor Reimagines the Power Outlet Via 3D Printing

While the designs of some products seem to change a few times a year — for example, smartphones — there are other products in our everyday lives which have remained relatively unchanged for decades. Objects as complicated as the combustion engine, or products as simple as the electrical sockets or outlet covers within our homes and […]

DragonFlex -- A New 3D Printed Medical Device for Complex Procedures

Biomechanical engineer Filip Jelínek of the Austrian Center for Medical Innovation and Technology has developed prototypes for a medical device which use 3D design and printing which is likely to change how doctors analyze and remove cancerous tissues and perform what are known as “keyhole” operations. The tool is meant to be minimally invasive, and […]
