A new robotics and housing startup, called Passivdom, builds houses using 3D printers. The frame of its smallest model can be 3D printed in about eight hours.
Within 15 minutes of meeting Mark Hersam, PhD, a renowned nanotechnology expert and professor of materials science and engineering at Northwestern University, Ethan Secor knew he wanted to work with him. Secor, a fifth year materials science and engineering PhD candidate, didn’t have a project in mi…
Scientists at the University of Oxford have developed a new method to 3D-print laboratory- grown cells to form living structures.
A technology originally developed to smooth out and pattern high-powered laser beams for the National Ignition Facility (NIF) can be used to 3D print metal objects faster than ever before, according to a new study by Lawrence Livermore researchers.
Eventually, if it takes off, orbital fabrication could revolutionize the way we make things. Read on:
In HBO’s TV show ‘Westworld,’ humanoid robots are 3D printed through means not totally explained by the show. While that may sound unrealistic, the technology to print human body parts already exists…
For the first time ever, scientists are successfully 3D printing actual, living human kidneys. Like the human livers printed in the past, the kidney are currently miniature in size, but with about 90% of the printed cells being alive, the potential for human use looks immensely positive.
If you weren’t impressed by the Origami pot that grows with your plant, you’re bound to be inspired by this invention capable of producing living gardens. Project PrintGREEN is transforming 3D printers into on-demand gardeners after it created
A dose of 3D printing could transform the way patients take their medications
Contour Crafting has won a major design prize for its ability to 3D print large-scale structures directly from architectural computer-aided design (CAD) projects.
Technology designed to build houses on Mars could also let us 3D print our own dream homes in less than 24 hours
Manufacturing in the U.S. will never be what it…
Cubify has announced that it will be selling a $1199 printer later this year called the Ekocycle Cube 3D Printer-it will be using recycled PET plastic bottles as one component in its filament cartridges-a single cartridge will hold the equivalent of three 20oz. bottles, making up 25 percent of its content.
While not the first to use additive manufacturing to create buildings, a Chinese company is using 3D printing technology to build cheap housing out of recycled material at a rate of up to 10 structures in 24 hours.
A 3D printer has passed its final set of NASA checks, clearing the way for the device to launch toward the International Space Station in August. A series of trials at the agency’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Alabama has verified that the 3D printer – developed by California-based startup Made
