Researchers Create Dynamic Self-Assembly Process for Building Mobile Micromachines

A micromachine has the potential to maniupulate and probe the microscopic world, and can be made up of multiple chemistries, materials, or parts in order to address different functions, such…

Concrete and 3D Knitting Combine to Produce KnitCandela 3D Printed Structure

In Mexico City, a strange structure has been erected – it looks a bit like a crouching frog, or maybe an exotic flower. It was built using a special 3D…

3D Printed Artificial Heart Pump Demonstrates Application of Embedded Magnet Printing

Kai von Petersdorff-Campen, a doctoral student in the mechanical and process engineering department at ETH Zurich, set out this spring to make a 3D printed artificial heart pump. He succeeded,…

Mobile Construction Robot 3D Prints a Temporary Architectural Installation Out of Loose Stones and Twine

While plastic is used often in 3D printing, stronger materials are required for architecture and construction applications, such as brick, concrete, and cement. But while we’ve seen stone-filled PLA filaments, rocks…

Researchers Inspired by Nature to Develop Recyclable Liquid Crystal Polymers for FDM 3D Printing

While it’s possibly to quickly manufacture complex parts at a low cost using fused deposition modeling (FDM) 3D printing, the readily available polymers are fairly weak, and the completed 3D…

3D Printed Magnets In Functional Assemblies Could Lead to New Machines and Medical Devices

Since 3D printing began to diversify, allowing for the printing of materials beyond just metal and plastic, scientists have been experimenting with the 3D printing of magnets. 3D printed magnets…

3D Printing News Briefs: August 1, 2018

We’re starting out with a little business in today’s 3D Printing News Briefs, then moving on to planes, automobiles, and camping, followed by some medical news. Renishaw just received a…

Sand 3D Printing Used to Create Smart Slab Ceiling for ETH Zurich’s DFAB House

Last year, a project began, led by ETH Zurich and centered around the fabrication of a multi-story house called the DFAB House. The structure would showcase multiple technologies being developed at…
