Researchers Develop and Test an Asphalt 3D Printer to Repair Roads

Researchers Develop and Test an Asphalt 3D Printer to Repair Roads

Asphalt is the most common material used to surface roads, for several reasons: it creates a safe, quiet surface for driving, it can be laid down quickly and without complex machinery, and it is tough and can be easily repaired. Asphalt composites do tend to degrade over time, however, leading to dreaded potholes. Potholes often […]

3D Printing Improves Testing for Gas Turbine Components

3D Printing Improves Testing for Gas Turbine Components

Gas turbines are complex components to manufacture, but additive manufacturing has been successfully utilized to accelerate design cycle times, reduce development test times, provide better test data and reduce the overall time to the release of the final component. It also allows for testing to be performed earlier, as early as the concept or preliminary […]

3D Printing in Art and Architecture: Miles Gertler Explores the Familiar and Unfamiliar

Form and function are two important aspects of any design, whether for art or architecture (or anything in between). When bringing that design into the third dimension, 3D printing helps to ensure that the two do not have to be mutually exclusive, as sometimes function can follow form, or vice versa — or the two […]
