Earwig Wings Inspire Researchers to 3D Print Multimaterial, Self-Folding Origami Elements

Earwig Wings Inspire Researchers to 3D Print Multimaterial, Self-Folding Origami Elements

Many scientists have been inspired by wings, be they bat, bird, or butterfly, in their 3D printing research projects. A team of researchers from ETH Zurich and Purdue University have taken their inspiration from the wing structure of an earwig, a strange-looking creature with a fascinating wingspan. An open earwig wing can expand 10 times […]

3D Printed Metamaterials Used for Patient-Specific Heart Valve Models May Help Cardiac Patients

3D Printed Metamaterials Used for Patient-Specific Heart Valve Models May Help Cardiac Patients

Every year, tens of thousands of people are diagnosed with heart valve disease, and of these people, transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is considered a good option for those considered to be at high risk for open-heart surgery complications. The prosthetic valves come in many sizes from different manufacturers, but if the replacement doesn’t have […]

‘Theta’ 3D Printer Uses 10 Motors to Allow 4 Extruders to Print Simultaneously

When it comes to FDM-based desktop 3D printers, the majority of them all work with the same basic Cartesian format. An extruder moves along an x,y and z-axis in a grid-like format to slowly fabricate an object one layer at a time. In addition to Cartesian-based systems, delta-robot systems also exist, but are used less commonly. We […]
