Researchers Integrate 3D Printing & Wearable Sensors to Make Accessible Prosthetic Hand

A trio of researchers from UC Berkeley and the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology recently published a paper, titled “Mechatronics Enabling Kit for 3D Printed Hand Prosthesis,” about how…

UC Berkeley Researcher Receives Award from Johnson & Johnson for Smart 3D Printer

In 2015, Johnson & Johnson launched the WiSTEM2D (Women in Science, Technology, Math, Manufacturing and Design) program in order to increase the representation of women in the scientific and technical fields, along…

Berkeley Researchers Studying Progress & Challenges in 4D Printing

While 3D printing allows for many users to create complex geometries not before possible, 4D printing does that and more with materials and textures that respond to their environment and…

LLNL and UC Berkeley Researchers Continue Work on Their Promising Volumetric 3D Printing Method

It’s been said that volumetric 3D printing has more speed, flexibility, and geometric versatility than other methods, with a lower cost. In late 2017, researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) in California teamed…

New Research Could Lead to DNA 3D Printer

Technology is capable of amazing things, but it doesn’t mean those things are easy. It’s incredible that scientists can produce DNA in a lab, but the process is difficult, lengthy…

3D Printed Devices House Tools to Detect Cancer and Gastrointestinal Issues

Cancer often requires surgical intervention to remove the affected tissue, and it’s not always easy. Sometimes it’s difficult to tell what is healthy tissue and what is cancerous during an…

Keep an Ear on Your Core Temperature with 3D Printed Earables

The core temperature of the human body can reveal a number of things about a person’s health. The presence of a fever is the most obvious one, but changes in…

Nature and Technology Come Together in Giant 3D Printed Bird’s Nest

When asked to picture a bird’s nest, most people will immediately go to the same image: a small, round structure, created from twigs, grass and other scavenged bits, with an…

Powerful Yet Painless: 3D Printed MucoJet Administers Oral Vaccines

3D printing is often associated with the DIY world, as well as the medical field—and it’s interesting today how the two sometimes meet in surprising ways from orthodontics to prosthetics…

UC Berkeley Students Develop Campus-Wide 3D Printing Filament Recycling Program

At the University of California Berkeley, nearly 600 pounds of plastic trash is generated every year – and while there are many contributing factors like plastic bottles, the school’s more than 100…
