Interview with Godwin Izibilli on 3D Printing in Nigeria

Nigeria is an African country well known for high profile academics and a large base of entrepreneurs. How is Africa’s most populous country utilizing these twin resources for 3D Printing?…

3D Printed Self-Healing Material Can Fix Sole of Shoe In Two Hours

The potential uses for unique self-healing materials are numerous, varying from fixing cell phone screens and other electronics to repairing cartilage and other biomedical applications. Now, a team of student and faculty…

Virginia Tech Researchers Using a New Method to Create 3D Printed Piezoelectric Materials

Originally discovered in the 19th century, piezoelectric materials, which convert stress and strain into electric charges, are in everything from musical greeting cards to cell phones. Piezoelectricity is electricity that results from…

Massachusetts Researchers Develop In-Line Rheometer for FDM 3D Printing

Rheology is the study of the flow of matter, and the flow rate of 3D printing materials is fairly important when it comes to the final print. According to a…

Researchers Create Smart Composite Material from Graphene Oxide and Seaweed-Derived Alginate

Usually when I think about seaweed, I’m trying to decide which particular sushi roll to order at dinner. But a team of researchers from Brown University in Rhode Island, which…

Electro-Assisted 3D Bioprinting Method for Low-Concentration GelMA Microdroplets

While low-concentration gelatin methacryloyl (GelMA) is biocompatible with 3D bioprinted cell‐laden structures, because of its low viscosity it’s hard to stably make organoids, and even microdroplets, with the material. A team…

Researchers Combining FDM 3D Printing with Hot-Melt Extrusion for Drug Delivery Systems

We’ve often seen 3D printing used to make drug delivery systems, but a trio of researchers from the University of Sussex are combining FDM technology with something called Hot-Melt Extrusion, or…

Researchers Use 3D Printing and Basic Electronic Components to Make Neuroscience More Accessible

While I was worse in math, science was also not one of my strong suits in school. So anything that makes it easier for students to better understand these complex…

Researchers Test Two Configurations of Biowaste 3D Printed Microbial Fuel Cells
