Development of 3D printed electronic modules receives grant approval

Nano Dimension has announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Nano Dimension Technologies, has received a grant approval from the Israel Innovation Authority, which will be used to finance a project to develop 3D printing of electronic modules for space applications. The total approved budget for this project is approximately $87,000 (NIS 309,000), of which the Israel Innovation Authority will finance 50%. According to the terms of the grant, Nano Dimension will pay royalties on future sales up to the full grant amount.

Chemists develop 3D printed graphene foam

Chemists develop 3D printed graphene foam
Nanotechnologists from Rice University and China's Tianjin University have used 3D laser printing to fabricate centimeter-sized objects of atomically thin graphene. The research could yield industrially useful quantities of bulk graphene and is described online in a new study in the American Chemical Society journal ACS Nano. "This study is a first of its kind," said Rice chemist James Tour, co-corresponding author of the paper.

3D printed objects capable of dramatic shape change

3D printed objects capable of dramatic shape change
A team of researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology has developed a way to use 3D printers to create objects capable of expanding dramatically that could someday be used in applications ranging from space missions to biomedical devices. The new objects use tensegrity, a structural system of floating rods in compression and cables in continuous tension. The researchers fabricated the struts from shape memory polymers that unfold when heated.

3D printing paves the way to lunar exploration

3D printing paves the way to lunar exploration
3D printing is potentially of great use to lunar exploration. Weight is a key constraint in space travel and the ability to create structures in situ, using lunar materials and solar power could bring lunar colonisation one step closer. Transporting the infrastructure needed by lunar colonists from Earth is technically challenging. Far more desirable would be the ability to use 3D printing to build structures in place.

3D printing centre investigates the potential of AM

3D printing centre investigates the potential of AM
In partnership with the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC), the European Space Agency (ESA) has set-up a new UK-based ‘one-stop shop’ in order to embrace the radical new technology of additive manufacturing (3D printing). The MTC, based in Coventry and home to the UK National Centre for Additive Manufacturing, will manage the new ESA Additive Manufacturing Benchmarking Centre (AMBC), which will provide a simple and easy way for ESA projects and hi-tech companies to investigate the potential of additive manufacturing for their work.

Technology speeds up 3D printing

Technology speeds up 3D printing
  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. A team of Lab scientists report the findings in the latest issue of Optics Express.
