Ink-jet printable and biocompatible layered electronicsPrinted electronics can lead to both low-cost and flexible devices. Flexible electronics is of particular interest for wearable systems, such as health and fitness trackers, while the relative low-costs of printing are attractive for functional packaging for consumer products. Graphene and related layered materials (GRMs) are ideal for printed electronics because they can be readily solution processed into inks that have excellent electronic properties.
Reinventing metal 3D printing with new direct writing processMetal 3D printing has enormous potential to revolutionize modern manufacturing. However, the most popular metal printing processes, which use lasers to fuse together fine metal powder, have their limitations. Parts produced using selective laser melting (SLM) and other powder-based metal techniques often end up with gaps or defects caused by a variety of factors.
Most stretchable elastomer for 3D printingDue to its excellent material properties of elasticity, resilience, and electrical and thermal insulation, elastomers have been used in a myriad of applications. They are especially ideal for fabricating soft robots, flexible electronics and smart biomedical devices which require soft and deformable material properties to establish safe and smooth interactions with humans externally and internally.
3D-печать добралась до сердцаУ десятков тысяч пациентов каждый год диагностируют заболевания клапанов сердца, при этом многим нужна операция для спасения жизни. Исследователи из Georgia Tech Manufacturing Institute в настоящее время работают над ...
Microsoft release 3D builder app for Windows phonesMicrosoft have released a new 3D design application for Windows phones. The 3D builder app allows users to scan, view, personalize and print 3D models.
3D printing metal with a desktop machineSince launching on Kickstarter in 2015, The Virtual Foundry’s Filamet™ copper and bronze 90% metal filament has been used to make stunning models that look as though they could have been cast rather than 3D printed.
