Powerful New 4D Printer Speeds Next-Generation, Next-Dimension 3D Printing

Powerful New 4D Printer Speeds Next-Generation, Next-Dimension 3D Printing

3D printed objects that can move and change shape are technically 4D printed – the fourth dimension comes in the object’s ability to change shape when exposed to environmental stimuli like heat, humidity, and/or light, and then revert back to its original form. At this week’s National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society […]

Better Marine Grade Stainless Steel Through 3D Printing

Better Marine Grade Stainless Steel Through 3D Printing

It takes a special kind of material to be able to hold up in a marine setting, with its harsh conditions and corrosive environment. So-called marine grade stainless steel is commonly used in maritime applications because it can handle those conditions. Its resistance to corrosion and its ductility, or ability to bend without breaking, make […]

Researchers Use Sensors, Microphones, and Nanoparticles to Develop Three Methods to Combat 3D Printer Cyberattacks

When it comes to computers and other technology, hacking, by definition, can mean either to modify in a clever, skillful way, or to get around security with malicious intent. So while we love hearing about cool 3D printing hacks, we also know that there are people in the world who aim to hack 3D printers […]

3D Printed Metamaterials Used for Patient-Specific Heart Valve Models May Help Cardiac Patients

3D Printed Metamaterials Used for Patient-Specific Heart Valve Models May Help Cardiac Patients

Every year, tens of thousands of people are diagnosed with heart valve disease, and of these people, transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is considered a good option for those considered to be at high risk for open-heart surgery complications. The prosthetic valves come in many sizes from different manufacturers, but if the replacement doesn’t have […]

UL Study Releases Data on Effects of 3D Printing on Human Health, Calls for New Standards

3D printing is a new enough technology that there’s still plenty of debate about how safe it is, on a number of levels. While some fears may be over-exaggerated, there’s still reason for legitimate concern, particularly in regards to factors such as 3D printer emissions. It’s a known issue that 3D printers can give off […]

10,000 Hours of 3D Printing Bring Larger-Than-Life Cast Bronze Sculpture to Georgia Tech

We always take great pleasure in writing about the convergence of 3D printing and the art world, and it is hard to imagine anyone not being impressed by some of the latest objects created by the —actually, a whole lab full of them. Indeed, great 3D printing power was behind the fabrication of a recent large sculpture […]

Researchers Use PowerPoint Slide and LED Projector to Create Self-Folding 3D Origami Structures

I remember learning about Microsoft PowerPoint for the first time when I was in junior high, and since then I have used the program often; little did I know that a humble PowerPoint slide would someday be used to help make self-folding 3D origami structures out of photocurable liquid polymers. Researchers from the Georgia Institute of […]

Failure Teaches the Best Lessons -- A Few Questions For: Georgia Tech's 3D Printed Racing Bike Team

“Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better.” – Samuel Beckett As spring flowers bloom and trees bud new leaves, many are inspired to spend more time outdoors — often enjoying activities such as riding bikes. While high-tech activities like 3D printing often lead to more time indoors, the two do […]

World’s First 3D Printed Excavator to Debut at CONEXPO-CON/AGG and IFPE 2017

Fluid power, or what is more commonly called hydraulics, is the use of keeping fluids under pressure in order to generate, control, or transmit power. Hydraulics is used in a range of industries and applications, but it is perhaps most common in the construction industry for heavy machinery like excavators and wheel loaders. These large-scale machines […]

How Safe is 3D Printing? UL Teams Up with Two Universities to Examine 3D Printing's Effect on Air Quality & Human Health

As we continue to see 3D printing expand substantially in use–sure, perhaps not explosively like early predictions might have had us believe, but certainly enough to make a great deal of companies and consumers alike sit up and take notice–concerns arise regarding what, exactly, we are inviting into our workshops, whether they be at home […]
