Houston - A sign that 3D printing has matured sufficiently for products to be entrusted for use in one of the most risk adverse areas, additive manufacturing produced materials are to be used in spacecraft.

New algorithm speeds up 3D printing two-fold

Detroit - An algorithm has been developed with enables 3D printers to work at twice the current speed. This is without sacrificing the quality of the end-product.

Designer shows the power of digital printing in new display

Amsterdam - A 3D printable Makerchair is currently on view at Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum as part of the exhibition “Joris Laarman Lab: Design in the Digital Age.” This exhibit highlights the possibilities of digital printing.

Advances in the 3D printing of nanofibers

The 3D printing of meshes will be of great advantage to manufacturers of solar cells, together with a range of other applications. Researchers have announced a new approach for the 3D printing of nanofiber meshes.

3D printing of personalized food pioneered

Jerusalem - A remarkable technological breakthrough in 3D printing of food on demand has been showcased by a new start-up. The technology is based on nano-cellulose, which is a natural, edible, calorie-free fiber.

3D printing could lead to reduced vaccination rates

Boston - The number of required individual vaccinations could fall dramatically thanks to a new scientific breakthrough, potentially leading to an increase in the vaccination rate. A new process uses drug-carrying "microparticles" to slowly release medications.

Catching the digital manufacturing wave

Beyond the debate on global trade, the idea of the Fourth Industrial Revolution has emerged as the focus for prolonged value creation in the sector on the backbone of connectivity and advances in big data, artificial intelligence and automation.

Digital driven printer develops bone replacements

The University of British Columbia has developed an advanced 3D printer that could provide the future basis of bone replacements. The device has the potential to be used for the generation of artificial bones.

Diagnostic tool printed for portable disease testing

Scientists from Duke University have used an inkjet printed tool for conducting diagnostic testing for use in point-of-care settings. The aim is to screen patients for markers of specific diseases.
