3D printers accelerate product development time

3D printers accelerate product development time
The portfolio of high-quality 3D printers at RS Components has been extended with the addition of two new high-reliability printers from Zortrax which target a wide range of professional users. The printers provide design engineers with the ability to produce detailed, accurate and cost-effective rapid prototyping of their designs, enabling a shorter development process and quicker time to market.

3D-printed four legged robot walks on sand and stone

3D-printed four legged robot walks on sand and stone
Engineers at the University of California San Diego have developed the first soft robot that is capable of walking on rough surfaces, such as sand and pebbles. The 3D-printed, four-legged robot can climb over obstacles and walk on different terrains. Researchers led by Michael Tolley, a mechanical engineering professor at the University of California San Diego, will present the robot at the IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation from 29th May to 3rd June in Singapore.

3D bioprinting: from science fiction to reality?

3D bioprinting: from science fiction to reality?
After over 15 years of research and development in academia and industry, several main applications of 3D bioprinting technology are ready to be realised. In IDTechEx’s new report titled 3D Bioprinting 2017 – 2027: Technologies, Markets, Forecasts, the global 3D bioprinting market is predicted to experience a period of high growth to reach a size of $1.8 billion by the year 2027.

'Bionic skin' could give robots the sense of touch

'Bionic skin' could give robots the sense of touch
Engineering researchers at the University of Minnesota have developed a process for 3D printing stretchable electronic sensory devices that could give robots the ability to feel their environment. The discovery is also a major step forward in printing electronics on real human skin. The research will be published in Advanced Materials and is currently online.

3D printing made simple

3D printing made simple
MIT spinout New Valence Robotics (NVBOTS) has brought to market the only fully automated commercial 3D printer that’s equipped with cloud-based queuing and automatic part removal, making print jobs quicker and easier for multiple users, and dropping the cost per part. To use the printer, called NVPro, a user submits a project from any device, which queues up in the NVCloud software.

Fabrication technology in the fourth dimension

Fabrication technology in the fourth dimension
Scientists use the term 4D printing to refer to the simple production of objects that can transform their shape at different times. Researchers at ETH Zurich have now taken this approach one major step further by developing a construction principle that can produce load-bearing and predictable structures. 3D printers have become a standard fixture in many research laboratories – and now a select number of researchers are already looking to add yet another dimension to the technology: time.

3D printing offers latest method to making buildings

3D printing offers latest method to making buildings
The list of materials that can be produced by 3D printing has grown to include not just plastics but also metal, glass, and even food. Now, MIT researchers are expanding the list further, with the design of a system that can 3D print the basic structure of an entire building. Structures built with this system could be produced faster and less expensively than traditional construction methods allow, the researchers say.
