U.S. Scientists have created a mobile skin 3D bioprinting system that allows bi-layered skin to be printed directly into a wound. This treatment could help in the healing of large wounds or burns.
Rather than building up plastic filaments layer by layer, a new approach to 3D printing lifts complex shapes from a vat of liquid at up to 100 times faster than conventional 3D printing processes, researchers have shown.
Australian metal additive manufacturing company Titomic today announces the launch of the world’s 'largest' metal 3D metal printer at its state of the art facility in Melbourne, Australia.
A team of UK researchers has developed a special fluid gel that can be used as a medium for suspension of biological material. This will solve a problem faced by scientists attempting to replicate soft human tissue.
Researchers are taking 3-D printing and 3-D modeling to a new level by using augmented reality to allow designers to design in physical space.
A look at the phenomenon of 3D printing worldwide, including a delicate resin pavilion in China, classical-design-inspired concrete beams in Italy and buildings that “think” in Germany.
Russian physicists are developing a new kind of ultrasonic 3D printing that uses levitation to lift small particles of foam plastic. The technique could eventually be used to 3D print hot or chemically aggressive solutions and substances.
Researchers at BYU are the first to 3-D print a viable microfluidic device small enough to be effective at a scale much less than 100 micrometers.
Using powdered metal and high-powered lasers, this additive manufacturing machine can produce virtually any metal part within a one-meter cube area.
Made In Space is an US manufacturer of the world’s first microgravity 3D printer. As of April 2017, the company has produced 39 objects including spare parts for NASA, and components for medical research.
The unassuming 3D-printed gravity meter was commissioned by a private citizen and manufactured aboard the ISS, and represents a significant step forward in space exploration.
If architect James Gardiner is even half right, 3D printing is about to launch a digital design revolution. Dr Gardiner believes it will transform our world like the industrial revolution did in the 18th and 19th centuries.
