3D printed organs have some way to go

3D printed organs have some way to go
A recent report from IDTechEx Research states that regenerative medicine will be the biggest growth market for 3D bioprinting. However, while using the technology for the replacement of damaged and failing organs is far more advanced than being purely a fantasy based in the realms of science fiction, the report suggest there are some hurdles to making the technology a significant player in the market, and it may be some years before it can realise its potential.

Jet fusion printer enhances MTC's 3D printing capability

Jet fusion printer enhances MTC's 3D printing capability
After it became the first centre in the country to install HP’s latest 3D printer, the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) will continue to drive the additive manufacturing revolution in the United Kingdom. The Coventry-based centre has added the new HP Jet Fusion 4200 to its extensive additive manufacturing armoury, which has been supplied by Europac 3D.

3D printing could save toy manufacturing

3D printing could save toy manufacturing
Cheap, plastic toys - no manufacturer necessary. The 2020 toy and game market is projected to be $135 billion, and 3D printing brings those profits home. People have scoffed that 3D printers are simply toys themselves. But they probably didn't realise how much money is made off playthings. Do-it-yourself (DIY) manufacturing - making goods at home with a 3D printer using open source designs from a free online repository - has a multimillionDollar impact on the overall toy industry.

Building with robots and 3D printers

Building with robots and 3D printers
Robots that build walls, and 3D printers that print entire formworks for ceiling slabs – digital fabrication in architecture has developed rapidly in recent years. As part of the National Centre of Competence in Research (NCCR) Digital Fab-rication, architects, robotics specialists, materials scientists, structural engineers and sustainability experts from ETH Zurich have teamed up with business partners to bring several new digital building technologies from the laboratory into practice.

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.
