3D Printed Glass Enables Next-Gen Sensing, Imaging and Photonics

For next generation photonics, sensing and imaging technologies, the ability to 3D print glass is critical to developing highly complex, freeform, or small-scale structures. Yet it has proven difficult to…

German Scientists Morph from 3D Printing to Dynamic 4D Microfluidic Structures Controlled by Laser

Researchers at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) are hoping to make greater strides in biomedical applications through fabrication of microstructures that can adapt like more natural substances, morphing into…

Investigating Effects of Process Parameters on Surface Roughness of 3D Printed Down-Facing Surfaces

From titanium bone regeneration scaffolds and hydraulic components to nuclear components and flow reactors, selective laser melting (SLM), which is also known as DMLS and Powder Bed Fusion, is an especially…

Researchers Develop Ceramic Composite 3D Printing Material and Process Chain for FDM Printers

There are multiple methods of manufacturing ceramic materials, including powder injection molding (PIM) and, of course, 3D printing. While ceramics are still considered to be a decently new 3D printing material,…

3D Printing News Briefs: March 9, 2018

We’re starting with a little business news in today’s 3D Printing News Briefs – while the funding has fallen through for the Idea-2-Product 3D printing center in Colorado, efforts are…

3D Printing News Briefs: December 12, 2017

Today’s 3D Printing News Briefs features some of the latest happenings in medical, business, and education 3D printing news. Nanoscribe is celebrating its 10 year anniversary, while an industry expert…

The Rapid Evolution of Glass 3D Printing

If you’ve ever seen a glass-blowing demonstration, you’ve probably marveled at what a delicate process it is. The practice is an ancient one, and it’s remained a much-loved art form,…

International Conference on Additive Manufacturing & 3D Printing ‘Steers Clear of the Hype’, Announces Full Speaker Lineup

3D printing technology and the industry that has sprung up around it continues to grow with a momentum that seems never-ending. If you have been wondering about its staying power…

R & D Tax Credit Aspect of 3D Printed Glass

Like every other printer, a 3D printer requires a type of “ink” in order to run. This ink can be made of many different materials, depending on what is being…

KIT Researchers Develop Erasable Ink for 3D Printing

Back in elementary school, one of the required items on my school supply lists at the beginning of the year was a set of erasable pens. I remember being excited…

Researchers Use Commercial SLA 3D Printer to 3D Print High-Resolution Glass Objects

Is 3D printed glass going to be the next big thing? While it’s not likely to replace, say, metal 3D printing in terms of leading the 3D printing industry, it’s…

Nanoscribe 3D Prints Micro-Optics at the Nanoscale

Two areas that are emerging in 3D printing are optics and nanoprinting. Companies such as LuXeXceL are pioneering 3D printing optically clear parts for LED arrays and other applications. Meanwhile…

3D Printing Reveals Nanostructures That Create Color in the Blue Tarantula

The search for new ways to create color is as old as mankind. The quest to create additions to the palette that would expand art and design beyond the whites,…

Nanoscribe Welcomes Japanese University Leaders to Conference with the Tiniest 3D Printed Pyramid Ever

One of the nice things about having access to a 3D printer is that you’ll never be in a pinch when it comes to birthday and Christmas presents. If you’re…

KIT Researchers Employ Two-Photon Polymerization 3D Printing for Better Tools in Atomic Force Microscopy

An atom is the smallest particle of an element. Known to retain the properties of the element from whence it sprung, study of these structures at the microscopic level can…

For the Plight of the Elephant: Artist Jonty Hurwitz Takes to the 3D Printed NanoScale Again with ‘The Fragile Giant’

Artist Jonty Hurwitz has created a 3D printed elephant. And while that alone may be enough to gain your attention, the one he’s created will have you squinting–in amazement. Fabricated…

Researchers Discover Method of Printing Electroluminescent Coatings on 3D Objects to Make Them Glow

In a development that may one day prove useful to 3D printed objects, the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology says they’ve created a process where conventional, flexible electroluminescent (EL) foils can…

3D Prints Smaller Than an Ant’s Forehead are Printed and Then Inevitably Lost

“We live in an era where the impossible has finally come to pass. In our own little way we have become demi-gods of creation.” – Jonty Hurwitz We’ve seen some…
