Behind the Buzz: Exploring the Challenges of High-Speed 3D Printing

High-speed continuous 3D printing has captured a lot of attention in recent years, and basically the method is an upgraded approach to Digital Light Processing (DLP) technology, which EnvisionTEC commercialized in 2002. With continuous printing, light can cure photosensitive polymers without being interrupted, as the build plate constantly moves in the Z direction – this […]

ORNL Reaching Out to Future Scientists with World’s Smallest 3D Printed Fidget Spinner

If you have a child or know one, you have probably heard about fidget spinners. Maybe you first saw one when it stole the show during an SNL skit featuring the Trump Brothers or you have a drawer full of them that you’ve confiscated when your students have decided to send them skittering across the […]

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 chemical reactions – better known as catalysis. Catalysts are made from metals and ceramics, and can be formed to resemble objects such as gears, wheels, […]

Five Seconds to a Paperclip: Hologram-Powered 3D Printer Creates 3D Objects with Incredible Speed

It’s late at night and The Creator is nearing exhaustion. She stares at a petri dish filled with a greenish slime, a veritable primordial stew, in which lie all of her hopes. Taking a deep breath, the turns on The Machine. A light flashes, bright green, the laser illuminates the dish and a form begins […]
