MIT: Automated System Designs and 3D Prints Optimized Actuators and Displays to Spec

Actuators are complex devices that mechanically control robotic systems in response to electrical signals received. Depending on the specific application they’re used for, today’s robotic actuators have to be optimized…

FEMTOPrint’s Technology Used to Help Produce 3D Printed Glass Molds for Droplet Microfluidic Chips

Swiss high-tech company FEMTOprint, dedicated to contract manufacturing of 3D printed microdevices in glass and other transparent materials, worked with Galatea Lab, Instant Lab and the Jules-Gonin Ophthalmic Hospital this past winter to explore how 3D…

Purdue Researchers Create Mini Shockwave with Custom Inkjet 3D Printer and Energetic Materials

If you’ve ever thought about the science behind how your car’s airbag deploys, you have energetic materials to thank for it. The materials in this class contain a high amount…

Electric Eel Inspires 3D Bioprinting Research That Could Lead to Soft, Biocompatible Power Sources

Electric eels are not evil, as much as Flotsam and Jetsam from The Little Mermaid would have you believe otherwise. The electric eel is the only species in its genus, and…

Self Peeling Droplets: Can Droplet Control Help Improve 3D Printing?

MIT researchers Kripa Varanasi, Jolet de Ruiter, and Dan Soto have recently published a paper in Nature Physics detailing how they can control the adhesion of droplets on surfaces. By…

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…
