New alloy leads to printing of safe steel products

3D printing has advanced in relation to plastics. With metals, progress has been slower due to technical complexities. A new advancement with the effective and safe 3D printing of steel has been announced.

Printing 3D structures with living cells

Researchers have devised a novel method for printing living cells, based on a technique called in-air microfluidics. The method could add with regenerative surgery.

Significant corporate investment in 3D printing

Many technology companies have shifted focus to artificial intelligence, automation to advanced materials. These areas are of importance, yet other corporations have chosen to make 3D printing the priority.

3D printed objects connect to WiFi without electronics

Washington - Researchers have created the first ever 3D printed objects that can connect to WiFi without the need for electronics. Such devices can, for example, signal when they are empty.

Essential Science: 3D printed rocket parts now a reality

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.

Amazing algorithms that can sketch and recreate 3-D shapes

A computer scientist from the University of British Columbia has developed a type of new software that can design a sketch of an everyday object, overcoming the challenge of accurately describing shapes.

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.

3D printing could solve organ transplant shortage

In U.S., over 10,000 people die every year either awaiting transplantation, or as a result of deteriorating health exacerbated by the shortage of organs, according to a review by Randolph Beard and colleagues.

3D printers creating car factories of the future

The future for many industries is the 3D printer and the future factory will be composed of several industrial-sized printers. The car and automotive sector is one area likely to be affected. We survey the technologies.

Read how 3D printing can save your life

Developments with 3D printing technology continue to advance and the technology is making strong inroads into the medical and biotechnology sectors. We take a look at three recent innovations.

First shape-changing 3D printed objects

Atlanta - 3D printing creates objects that compress and expand according to programmed heat changes. Tensional integrity forms bridges and domes on Earth and may form 3D compressible "tensegrity" structures in space or in soft robots.

First transistors made of nanocrystal ‘inks’ produced

To design transistors to be built into flexible or wearable applications, researchers from the University of Pennsylvania have developed a process using nanocrystal “inks.”

3D printed ovaries produce mice pups

Many biologists see 3D printing as a suitable technology for producing human tissues and organs, creating life-saving and health-enhancing biological constructs. In a breakthrough, a science groups have produced fully-working mice ovaries.

Erasable ink developed for 3D printing

Researchers have developed the first ever erasable ink for use with 3D printing. The aim was to come up with an ink suitable for 3D fabrication in biology or materials sciences.

New generation of implants from additive printing

A new 3D printing process from Duke University has allowed for the creation of a new range of medical devices. These biomedical devices have been manufactured using a titanium 3D metal printer.

McLaren to 3D-print parts at trackside

Car manufacturer McLaren plans to start 3D-printing parts for its Formula 1 cars at the trackside. This is set to begin with the Bahrain F1 Grand Prix .

3D printed camera mimics sharp vision of predators

An advanced camera has been created through the use of a 3D printer. The camera has been designed to mimic the 'eagle-eyes' of many predatory birds, and a key application is with advancing drone imaging technology.

Edging towards printable solar cells

Toronto - Imagine being able to print out your own solar cells? Or popping to a store and having solar panels fashioned to your specification within minutes? These processes are becoming close to reality.

3D printing’s most stretchable elastomer fashioned

Elastomers are used for a variety of common goods, and they are the basis of flexible electronics. Increasing flexibility while maintaining elasticity is a key requirement; with this, a new super-stretchable elastomer has been developed.

3D printer set to print human skin

An innovative 3D bioprinter is being prepared to produce human skin, designed for medical research purposes (such as the testing out of new drugs). This skin may also be adequate for transplanting to patients.

3D printing finds that spiders can hear

Scientists have discovered that jumping spiders, believed to have no hearing faculties, can sense sounds through the hairs on their legs, called trichobothria.

Does 3D printing present a global security risk?

3D printing (or ‘additive printing’) has brought many benefits and its future promises more innovations. Could 3D printing be used for crime? Such as printing a copy of a hand to fool finger-print security systems?
