Australian Researchers Bling It On with Diamond-Coated 3D Printed Titanium Implants

Australian Researchers Bling It On with Diamond-Coated 3D Printed Titanium Implants

As the song says, diamonds are forever – and not just in terms of jewelry. New research coming out of Australia this week illustrates that the stone has been successfully used as a coating for SLM 3D printed titanium implants. Coatings can be used to protect 3D prints, and we’ve seen materials like wax and carbon […]

Just In Time Implants: New Australian Project Will Use 3D Printing and Robotic Surgery in Bone Cancer Treatment

Global medical device manufacturing company Stryker fully committed to 3D printing technology in 2016, and over the past year has been making good on that commitment, with new partnerships and 3D printed medical products. Now, the company is funding a five-year research project in Australia, worth over AUD$12.1 million, between St Vincent’s Hospital Melbourne, the University […]

World’s Thinnest 3D Hologram Created by RMIT University and Beijing Institute of Technology

World’s Thinnest 3D Hologram Created by RMIT University and Beijing Institute of Technology

I never thought I’d see the day in which holograms moved from the realm of science fiction into everyday reality, but here we are. Computer-generated holography has actually been around for decades, but it’s a technology whose use has been relegated to specialized fields such as optical microscopy and metrology. Thanks to 3D technology, however, […]

Digital Fabrication in Architecture and 3D Printing Materials in Focus at AAAS Annual Meeting

The use of 3D printing in the construction field is not a new thing – there are 3D printed office buildings and laboratories, a 9-foot-tall 3D printed pavilion, 3D printed houses, and for the Game of Thrones fans who wish they could really live in Westeros, there’s even a 3D printed life-sized version of the Stark family’s Winterfell. […]

3D Printed Titanium Garmin Cycle Mount Allows for Hands-Off Info While Traveling

3D Printed Titanium Garmin Cycle Mount Allows for Hands-Off Info While Traveling

Today it seems everywhere we turn, titanium is being used in place of conventional materials—and 3D printing is being employed over traditional processes. And as we delve further, printing with metal is key for many companies now exploring new ways to make customized components that are stronger and able to hold up to the elements […]

A Blending of Old Ceremony with New Science

Time Honored Traditions Once carried into battle by armor clad warriors, the mace has always held a place of respect. It was one of few weapons able to defeat armored knights. Even as it lost its place in battle, it kept its hard-earned respect. Only the guardians of royal families were to carry the now ornately decorated […]

Researchers Using 3D Printed Chocolate Treats to Encourage Physical Exercise

Researchers Using 3D Printed Chocolate Treats to Encourage Physical Exercise

Researchers at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology are using 3D printing to examine the relationship between physical activity and reward via chocolate. Like the original SweetHearts concept we saw back in October, this time the RMIT researchers are taking their research into the home. The team began their investigation with a scenario which represented […]

SweetHearts Offers 3D Printed Chocolates as Reward in New Diet and Exercise Concept

Monday morning usually weighs us down with a fair amount of guilt over the weekend’s indulgences — and a bathroom scale that we want to toss out the window. It’s easy to talk (and write) about diet and exercise, but as most of us know — it’s not so easy to put our plans into […]
