Researchers Develop Unique 3D Manufacturing Method to Create and Control Material Architecture on the Nanoscale

Back in 2014, the National Institute of Health awarded Washington State University (WSU) researchers a five-year grant of $1.8 million, in order to improve the coating used for 3D printed titanium…

Researchers at Tsinghua University Describe How Nanodroplets Deform Upon Surface Strike, Potential to Improve 3D Printing

The demand for, and interest in, nanotechnology is growing, which means that a reliance on nanoscale (one billionth of a meter) printing is not going away. Researchers at ORNL developed…

Jilin University Researchers Use 3D Printing to Replicate Complex Structures Found in Nature

3D printing may be one of the newest methods of fabrication, but in many cases, it also takes cues from the oldest fabrication techniques in the world – older than…

EU Establishes ELENA Network for Study of Nanotechnology Processes, Including FEBID Additive Manufacturing Technique

Nanotechnology proves that bigger isn’t always better. The technology is engineering, science, and technology at the nanoscale, which operates at one billionth of a meter. Think of it this way:…

LLNL Researchers Make Progress Using 3D Printing for Material Strength Testing

A lot of the science behind 3D printing is intensive study of material properties, especially when it comes to industrial additive manufacturing. Some of the most advanced research of materials…
