Removing design limitations for concrete components

Removing design limitations for concrete components
Concrete components are traditionally made by casting. But the mold needed places significant limitations on design possibilities. 3D printing now provides new freedom in shaping. Researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) are experimenting with various processes, including selective binding. This technology has made it possible for the first time to create intricate, bionic structures from real concrete.

Improving efficiencies with high definition 3D print

Paragon Rapid Technologies claims to be the only service provider in the UK to have two NEO800 3D printers from RP Support. The UK-manufactured machines use the Stereolithography process to produce prototype parts with superior side wall quality and unrivalled build definition. Utilising the latest variable laser technology, build speed is optimized and surface finishing requirements are reduced by up to 50%, resulting in significantly quicker lead times. The state of the art NEO800 also offers a larger build platform than comparable systems at 800mm x 800mm x 600mm, for bigger 1-piece models.

3D-printed device builds improved nanofibres

3D-printed device builds improved nanofibres
  Meshes made from fibres with nanometer-scale diameters have a wide range of potential applications, including tissue engineering, water filtration, solar cells, and even body armour. But their commercialisation has been hampered by inefficient manufacturing techniques.

Is the game over or has it just begun?

Is the game over or has it just begun?
  With the eighth instalment in the Saw franchise being released today, one fan has created his own remote controlled ‘Billy’ puppet. The Saw films focus on John Kramer (aka the Jigsaw killer) who sets a series of tests for his victims in which he tests their will to live. Rather than appearing in person to set his tests, Jigsaw uses the Billy puppet to explain the rules of the game.

3D printer makes first wearable battery

3D printer makes first wearable battery
Imagine printing off a wristband that charges your smartphone or electric car with cheap supplies from a local hardware store. That's the direction materials research is heading at Brunel University London where scientists have become the first to simply and affordably 3D print a flexible, wearable 'battery'. The technique opens the way for novel designs for super-efficient, wearable power for phones, electric cars, medical implants like pacemakers and more.
