3D Printing News Briefs: June 29, 2018

In today’s 3D Printing News Briefs (the last one this month, how is the summer going by so quickly?!), a few companies are announcing special honors and recognitions, and then we’re sharing stories stories about some interesting new 3D printing projects, and finally wrapping things up before the weekend with some business news. Renishaw’s Director […]

3D Printed Swimming Soft Robot Uses Shape Memory Polymers to Paddle Forwards and Backwards

3D Printed Swimming Soft Robot Uses Shape Memory Polymers to Paddle Forwards and Backwards

In November, researchers from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH Zurich) published a study that explained how shape memory polymers can be the catalyst for making adaptable materials that will return to their original shape once heated, which we’ve seen before. The team used 3D printing, programmable design, and thermoviscoelastic meta-materials in the study, and […]

Soft Robotic Fish with 3D Printed Components Ready for Marine Life Observation

Soft Robotic Fish with 3D Printed Components Ready for Marine Life Observation

I am always excited on the days I get to learn about the latest remarkable 3D printing innovation coming out of MIT’S Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL). This time, the researchers are taking on soft robotics again, and have introduced SoFi, a soft robotic fish made of silicone rubber with 3D printed components, […]

3D Systems’ High-Quality 3D Printed Appearance Models Provide Trade Show Support at Oil & Gas Industry Event

3D Systems’ High-Quality 3D Printed Appearance Models Provide Trade Show Support at Oil & Gas Industry Event

Large-scale parts and machines are not always the easiest, or cheapest, objects to bring to a trade show or conference. But 2D photographs just don’t offer the same kind of experience as actually seeing the object for yourself, so sometimes the next best option is a scale or appearance model, which can offer support at […]

3D Printed Robot Prototype Inspired by Hitchhiker Fish Can Cling to Underwater Surfaces

These days, you don’t often see a person standing alone on the side of the highway with their arm out and their thumb up, looking to hitch a ride – by now, we all know the many potential dangers of both offering or accepting a ride. I think Phoebe says it best in an episode […]

Italy’s WitLab Creates 3D Printed ArcheoRov, Ready for Underwater Archaeological Expeditions

Italy’s WitLab Creates 3D Printed ArcheoRov, Ready for Underwater Archaeological Expeditions

I really enjoy learning, and writing, about drones. There are a lot of applications for drone technology, ranging from the more mundane (but fun!) pizza delivery to cutting-edge drones being used as first responders in search and rescue operations. So, what’s even cooler than a drone flying through the air? Drones swimming through the water, of course! […]

3D Imaging of Loch Ness Gives Nessie Believers New Hope

Don’t give up on Nessie just yet. Just because there has been absolutely no proof that she is real and all human capacity for reasoning denies the probability of her existence hasn’t stopped a lot of people from harboring secret hopes that she’s out there (even if it’s just because we imagine that she might one […]

Designer 3D Prints a Working RC Submarine

Submarines are one of those incredible pieces of machinery that most of us are at least slightly fascinated with. These vehicles have been around for centuries, and are still used today for various purposes. Submarines didn’t really become popular until World War I, when they were utilized as a way of attacking ships from beneath […]

World’s First Underwater Store, Created by Sony, Relied Heavily on 3D Printed Product Displays

World’s First Underwater Store, Created by Sony, Relied Heavily on 3D Printed Product Displays

There has been a lot of talk over the last decade or so about the possibility of not only colonizing space, but eventually colonizing the oceans with floating cities. Although I’m not entirely sure this is a good idea given that humans have already had a significant negative impact on our planet’s aquatic system, without […]

Artifacts from Pearl Harbor Bombed USS Arizona are Brought to the Surface with 3D Printing

Artifacts from Pearl Harbor Bombed USS Arizona are Brought to the Surface with 3D Printing

On December 7, 1941 Japanese aircraft dropped the bombs that would sink the USS Arizona in Pearl Harbor, killing 1,177 of the officers and crewmen aboard.  What could not be salvaged by the Navy remains submerged in the waters where she sank, and the harbor acts as a graveyard for the bodies of over 1,100 […]
