All the world's a 3D printed stage

All the world's a 3D printed stage
In the world of theatre 3D printing has already been used to create masks and furniture components, but it is now being used to print scenic design. This is taking place in Rome for Daniel Auber's 'Fra Diavolo' play, directed by Giorgio Barberio Corsetti, with conductor Rory McDonald, on stage at the Opera Theatre on 8th October 2017 and in replica until 21st October. WASP is a technology partner of this event. When asked to make the scene of the work, the WASP team was surprised, but as it always happens, it immediately accepted the challenge.

Controlling drones with the wave of a hand

Controlling drones with the wave of a hand
Researchers at the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology (Empa) have developed a new device that lets you control a drone with simple hand gestures. Designed to be easy and intuitive, the new Empa innovation works through 3D printing and original sensor technology: a wave to the left, and the drove moves to the left; a wave to the right, the drone moves to the right.

3D printing software enables evaluation of macroscopic designs

3D printing software enables evaluation of macroscopic designs
The precise control of printed objects’ microstructure gives designers commensurate control of the objects’ physical properties — such as their density or strength, or the way they deform when subjected to stresses. Today’s 3D printers have a resolution of 600 dots per inch, which means that they could pack a billion tiny cubes of different materials into a volume that measures just 1.67 cubic inches.

Hybrid nanoparticles enable 3D printing in water

Hybrid nanoparticles enable 3D printing in water
Researchers at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem's Center for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology have developed a new type of photoinitiator for 3D printing in water. These novel nanoparticles could allow for the creation of bio-friendly 3D printed structures, further the development of biomedical accessories and drive progress in traditional industries such as plastics.
