3D Printed Bacteria Could Lead to 3D Printed Electronics in Space, Say TU Delft Researchers

3D Printed Bacteria Could Lead to 3D Printed Electronics in Space, Say TU Delft Researchers

It seems as though we can 3D print with just about anything these days – glass, sand, food substances, human cells, you name it – but one substance I never would have thought to put into a 3D printer is bacteria. The first question that might come into most people’s minds is, “Well, why would you?” […]

Researchers Optimize Robust, Lightweight, Bone-Inspired 3D Printing Infill

There’s so much more that goes into a 3D print than many people realize. To those unfamiliar with how the process works, it looks like simple magic – but there are a lot of factors that go into the process of turning a design into a physical 3D object, and a lot of decisions to […]

TU Delft Students Develop New Technique for 3D Printing Soft Robotics

TU Delft Students Develop New Technique for 3D Printing Soft Robotics

I find soft robotics to be utterly fascinating. While the technology has been around for a while, it’s recently begun to really advance in unprecedented ways – thanks in part to 3D printing. The ability of 3D printing has enabled soft, polymer-based materials to be developed and used in ways that were never possible before, and […]

Testing with the 3D Printed Mannequin Pays Off: Tour de France Cyclist Wins Time Trials

While much research and development is centered around making 3D printed items, from human organs to houses—in all of its wonder—this technology is also extremely useful just in the process of R&D as well. Tom Dumoulin, a pro bicycle racer from the Netherlands, discovered this for himself recently as a team of designers turned their […]

The Next Rembrandt: Reaching Toward the Human Soul with 3D Printed Data

The technical world of 3D printing is an absolute wonder of precision and possibility. It has become clear that there is an as yet unlimited potential for improvement of the human condition through disaster relief solutions, medical interventions, and tools to satisfy scientific curiosity. The question that then arises is this: is there space in this […]

Dutch Students Create a Unique 3D Printed Metal Bicycle with Help from MX3D

It looks like something Spiderman might have built – a bike made of strong, silvery webbing somehow holding together tires, seat, and handlebars. In actuality it was created by a group of Dutch college students – not superhuman, perhaps, but ingenious all the same. Harry Anderson, Stef de Groot, Ainoa Areso Rossi, Sjoerd van de […]

The 3D Printed Soft Robotics Hand Will Respond to Human Grip

The 3D Printed Soft Robotics Hand Will Respond to Human Grip

Robots have already become an indispensable part of our lives. Everything from a Roomba to the automatic drink machine at McDonald’s and even the 3D printers that I write about every day are all remarkably sophisticated robotics. But those are just the tip of the robotic iceberg, for instance, most of the consumer products that […]

The Stories We Didn't Cover This Week -- September 26

In this week’s stories we didn’t cover we have many examples of just how innovative 3D printing can be. For example, the still in-production Bloodhound Super-Sonic car has many 3D printed parts that will hopefully help it break the world land speed record in 2016. New Zealand has committed millions of dollars for new technology research […]
