Novel Approach to Optimizing Soft Material 3D Printing Detailed in New Research Paper

Novel Approach to Optimizing Soft Material 3D Printing Detailed in New Research Paper

When it comes to 3D printing materials, from metals and self-folding plastics to biomaterials like soft tissue, the researchers at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) know their stuff. Now, a research team from the university’s College of Engineering has created a novel approach to optimizing soft material 3D printing, which can be tricky due to the fact that many parameters […]

3D Printing and the Art of Kirigami Lead to a Bandage That Actually Stays in Place

3D Printing and the Art of Kirigami Lead to a Bandage That Actually Stays in Place

If you’ve ever gotten a cut on your elbow or knee, or even on the joint of a finger, you know it’s a nightmare to try to keep those cuts bandaged. No matter how secure the bandage seems at first, it often pops right off the first time you bend the affected joint. It’s incredibly […]

Penn State Researchers Use 3D Printing Technology to Improve Strength and Cell Adhesion of PDMS

Penn State Researchers Use 3D Printing Technology to Improve Strength and Cell Adhesion of PDMS

Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS), also known as silicone rubber, has several useful properties, and there has been a lot of interest lately in 3D printing the material. However, it’s a difficult process, as you generally need to heat the material rapidly or use special chemistry to cure it. But according to a team of researchers from Penn State, […]

World’s First Customized 3D Printed Airway Stents Developed and Implemented in France

Not all 3D printing in the medical field means that someone’s managed to 3D print skin, kidneys, or other organs. Oftentimes, 3D printing technology is used in the creation of medical tools and instruments, patient-specific models, surgical guides, and stents. Stents are basically small, expandable tubes used to keep passageways, like blood vessels, arteries, or airways […]
