Bally Ribbon Mills Develops Film Infusion Capability for 3D Woven Joints

Bally Ribbon Mills Develops Film Infusion Capability for 3D Woven Joints

I remember a long-term elementary school art project I participated in once that involved students weaving small bits of fabric together on a loom in order to make brightly colored textile objects that could only be described as ugly rugs for guinea pigs – that’s how little they were. I hated the tedious project, and […]

Researchers Use Cross-Linking Strategy to Improve SLA 3D Printing, Focus on Polyurethane-Acrylate

Stereolithography, also referred to as SLA and SL, was the first 3D printing method invented, and while for a long time it was only considered to be a prototyping solution, we’re long past those days. This versatile technology can produce accurate, high-resolution parts with smooth surfaces, diverse build sizes, consistent properties throughout, and can also […]

BYU Researchers Create First 3D Printed Microfluidic Device Effective Below 100 Micrometers

It’s possible to use 3D printing to create microfluidic devices, which are tiny ‘lab on a chip’ tools that use microscopic channels to work out small structures like cells and disease biomarkers in liquid samples such as blood; they can also quickly and precisely analyze chemicals with small volumes. But the devices are expensive and […]
