UV Assisted Direct Ink Writing of 3D Printed and “4D Printed” Shape Memory Epoxy Parts

The magic of 3D printing has touched most of us in some way by now, as schools in many countries are establishing programs, libraries offer makerspaces for patrons, and designers…

Virginia Tech Researchers 3D Print Kapton Using Direct Ink Writing

Last year, a group of Virginia Tech researchers developed a method for 3D printing Kapton, a foil-like polyimide that possesses excellent thermal and chemical stability and therefore is commonly used…

Direct Ink Writing Process for 3D Printing Mechanoluminescent Objects

Way back in 1605, English philosopher, statesman, and scientist Francis Bacon first demonstrated the phenomenon of mechanoluminescence – light emission resulting from a mechanical action on a solid – by breaking apart…

LLNL Successfully Creates 4D Printed Flexible, Stretchable Composite Silicone Materials with Shape Memory

Earlier this summer, researchers from the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) were working on using a direct ink writing (DIW) process to 3D print silicone metamaterials with shape memory behavior –…

LLNL Researchers Use Direct Ink Writing to 3D Print Silicone Metamaterials with Shape Memory Behavior

A research team from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) has used a direct ink writing (DIW) process to 3D print property-specific, silicone metamaterials that possess shape memory behavior, which technically makes…

NC State Researchers Look to the Structural Stability of Sand Castles to Develop New 3D Printing Method for Silicone Paste

The other day I was walking through a local outdoor mall, and noticed that several wooden platforms had been set up. The platforms weren’t empty: each one contained a rather…

Empa Researchers Develop Eco-Friendly Cellulose 3D Printing Ink

Cellulose is the main building block of plant material, and it may become the main building block of many 3D printed items, as well. The all-natural, eco-friendly, abundant material has…

LLNL Researchers Develop New Method of 3D Printing Transparent Glass for Optical Applications

The 3D printing of glass has been in the news quite a lot lately, with several breakthroughs coming in the last couple of months. Micron3DP is releasing its glass 3D printer…

LLNL Researchers First to 3D Print Aerospace-Grade Carbon Fiber Composites, Using a Modified DIW 3D Printing Process

California-based Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) has a 60-year history of applying technology and science to make the world a safer place, and has a vision to be the premier destination…
