Startup Looks to 3D Printing to Make Taller, More Effective Wind Turbines

The average height of wind turbines in the United States is about 80 meters. The taller a wind turbine is, the more valuable and productive it is, as taller turbines can capture faster winds aloft. There’s a reason they tend to max out at about 80 meters, however – the taller they are, the larger […]

3D Printed Reflector Improves WiFi Signal and Security in Interior Spaces

Have you ever been stuck waiting somewhere, like a doctor’s office, and really just wanted to check your email while you were sitting there, but the WiFi signal was just too weak? It can be a frustrating situation, especially when the alternative is flipping through really old magazines – they never seem to have current […]

Dassault Systèmes US Foundation Teams with Base 11 to Provide Advanced 3D Design Training to Students

Dassault Systèmes makes a frequent appearance in 3D printing headlines. As the company behind SOLIDWORKS and the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, Dassault has a presence in just about every industry relating at all to 3D technology. We had the privilege of visiting the company’s brand new 3DEXPERIENCE Center at Wichita State University a couple of weeks ago, […]

Crohn’s Disease Patient Invites the Public to Look Inside His Virtual Colon, Shows 3D Model to Surgeon Before Procedure

Crohn’s disease is a painful and sometimes scary condition, but for Larry Smarr, it was a fascinating learning opportunity – not only for him, but for the general public he allowed to examine his colon in virtual reality. Smarr, the founding director of the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (Calit2) and a professor of […]

UCI Researchers Introduce 3D Printed Microfluidics Platform

A few weeks ago, researchers from the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of California, Irvine, introduced a paper focusing on an innovative Lego-based modular microfluidics platform designed with 3D printed molds. Complex microfluidics platforms and microfluidics technology in general serve as the foundation of important and sophisticated research in the fields of medicine, […]

Can the Sound of a 3D Printer Be a Security Threat? Researchers at the University of California Think So

Can the Sound of a 3D Printer Be a Security Threat? Researchers at the University of California Think So

Most people I know have been victims of a computer virus at one time or another. I certainly have, more than once, and it’s always incredibly stressful. Not only have these viruses caused my computer to go haywire, but there’s always the fear that whatever has infiltrated my system is accessing all of my personal […]
