$3 Million Awarded to Collaborative Metal 3D Printing Research Team

A lot of effort has been going into determining the cause of flaws and defects in metal 3D printing, which can lead to weaknesses like spattering and micro cracking in…

Ames Laboratory Researchers Use 3D Printed Manifold in Advanced Magnetocaloric Cooling System

The Ames Laboratory, a national laboratory with the US Department of Energy’s Office of Science and operated by Iowa State University, works to solve our world’s pressing issues with innovative energy…

3D Printing Used to Develop Sensors That Measure Plants’ Use of Water

Plants don’t talk, so humans can only observe to see how well they’re doing or how they’re reacting to their treatment and environment. But researchers at Iowa State University have…

Ames Laboratory Develops One-Step 3D Printing Process to Create Customizable, Chemically Active Catalysts

Many industries, from healthcare to aerospace and everything in between, have found ways to use 3D printing, but one area that’s still fairly new is using the technology to control…

Ames Laboratory’s Metal Powder Manufacturing Technology Opens Up New Material Possibilities for 3D Printing

Metal powders, of the sort commonly used for additive manufacturing, look pretty similar at first glance, but their differences are many – not just between differing metals and alloys, but…

ISU Students 3D Print Intake, Dashboard, Heel Cups for This Year’s SAE Racecar—the CR-21

If the technology of 3D printing were given human form I’d venture to say that it might ask us, geez, to ease off with the pressure a little; after all,…

Designer Kurt Plagge Creates Unbelievably Complex 3D Printed Cubes With i.materialise

The cube: it’s one of the more simplistic geometric shapes we know of, equal in width, length, and height on each of its sides. Yet despite its basic nature, this shape…

Iowa State University Attains 3D Systems ProX 300 3D Printer Amidst Statewide Campus Tech Growth

As a former college professor at a California State University campus a decade ago, I wonder how it would have felt hearing students and colleagues talk about what they are…

Vincent the Cat Gets New Legs Thanks to Iowa State University and BioMedtrix

For animals with missing limbs, the future used to be pretty bleak, particularly for strays and shelter animals. It’s heartbreaking to think about, but many shelters don’t have the resources…
