Study suggests 3D printers with enclosed chambers and filters can reduce particle emissions

March 7th, 2017|

Researchers from the Built Environment Research Group, operating out of the Illinois Institute of Technology, have been testing desktop 3D printers for VOC and other particle emissions. The research has involved testing various commercial desktop 3D printers, such as the UP BOX+ 3D printer, to see whether features like an enclosed chamber and HEPA filter […]

Madrid Hospital successfully simulates catheterization procedure in 3D printed heart

March 7th, 2017|

Gregario Marañón Hospital in Madrid has made headlines again by simulating a catheterization in a 3D printed heart. The news comes hot on the heels of the medical center's recent breakthrough in bio-printing human skin, which took the 3D printing community by storm this past January.

U.S. Army tests RAMBO, a 3D printed grenade launcher

March 7th, 2017|

Researchers at the U.S. Army Armament Research, Development and Engineering Center have test fired a 3D printed grenade launcher called RAMBO (Rapid Additively Manufactured Ballistics Ordnance). Donald Trump’s first budget as President of the U.S.A. will propose a huge hike in defense spending. If the President gets his way, an extra $54 billion will be […]

3D printing an increasing source of medical aid in earthquake-devastated Nepal

March 7th, 2017|

3D printing has become an increasing source of medical aid in earthquake-stricken Nepal. In the wake of the 7.8-magnitude earthquake that devastated the country in April 2015, killing almost 9,000 people, Nepalese communities have been struggling to survive.

Sigma Labs awarded new contract with Aerojet Rocketdyne for metal 3D printed part qualification

March 7th, 2017|

Metal 3D printing specialist Sigma Labs Inc. has received an additional contract from Aerojet Rocketdyne, a California-based rocket and missile propulsion manufacturer. The new contract is a follow-on for a contract that was awarded to Sigma Labs last year to develop advanced quality control measures for 3D printing metal aerospace parts.

Microdroplet 3D printing technique mimics natural phenomenon of desert roses

March 7th, 2017|

Researchers at Washington State University have developed a new 3D printing method for creating complex, bio-like materials. The method allows for control over the material's architecture from the nanoscale to centimeters.Unfortunately for those in the forestry and medical industries, it is not yet possible to 3D print materials like wood and bone. It is, however, […]

3D printing helps design duo Drzach and Suchy realize incredible shadow clouds

March 7th, 2017|

Swiss design duo Drzach and Suchy have used 3D printing to create some spectacular “shadow clouds,” 3D objects that cast different shadows depending on the direction of light. These wonderful “shadow clouds” from Drzach and Suchy might not be the most practical examples of 3D printing technology you’ll see this week, but they might just […]

Stunning 3D printed Isoled lamp will light up your life

March 7th, 2017|

A couple of years ago, industrial designer Bert Simons created a stunning truncated icosahedron hanging light made from paper. And while the paper lamp is undeniably impressive, a recent upgrade to Simons’ design is really lighting us up. Called the Isoled_V2, the new version of the hanging lamp is made up of 3D printed parts, […]
