These jumping robots are hard and soft at the same time

These jumping robots are hard and soft at the same time
  We usually think of robots as being constructed from hard metals but recently, soft-bodied robots are springing up all over the place. A team of Harvard scientists have 3D printed a jumping robot that features a little bit of each of these external characteristics.

Check out the world's first 3D-printed supercar

Check out the world's first 3D-printed supercar
Divergent Microfactories is implementing 3D-printing into auto manufacturing as a way to reduce pollution, materials and capital costs associated with building automobiles. The technology revolves around a Node, a 3D-printed aluminum joint that connects pieces of carbon fibre tubing to make up the car’s chassis.

3D printing in the ruins of Pompei

3D printing in the ruins of Pompei
In what may be the first ever case of using 3D printing in the restoration of artistic and cultural heritage, WASP has been asked to collaborate in restorative intervention by the Special Superintendence for Cultural Heritage of Pompei, Ercolano and Stabia. Two of the company's Delta 4070 3D printers have been supplied to reproduce 1:1 scale versions of the casts of citizens who perished following Vesuvius' eruption in 79AD.

Solar cells out of a printer?

Solar cells out of a printer?
Physicists at the Technische Universität München (TUM) have successfully printed microelectronic components with extremely thin polymer electrodes, which have improved electrical properties. Flexible displays and touch screens, glowing films, RFID tags and solar cells represent a future market.

3D robot prints a bridge in steel

3D robot prints a bridge in steel
With robots that 3D 'draw' in steel, MX3D will print a bridge over the water in the centre of Amsterdam. The company researches and develops groundbreaking, cost-effective robotic 3D printing technology. Printing an intricate, ornate metal bridge for a special location is the ultimate test for robots and software, engineers, craftsmen and designers. The bridge by designer Joris Laarman will be ready in 2017.

Fallingwater lives to see its 3D printed version

Fallingwater lives to see its 3D printed version
Fallingwater, the one-of-a-kind house designed by America’s most famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright, has lived to see its spectacular 3D printed version. The residence was created with three different techniques: CNC milling, laser engraving and 3D printing. It took only two weeks to complete the project using the ZMorph all-in-one Personal Fabricator and the latest version of the voxel-based software, Voxelizer.

3D printed products could treat head injuries

3D printed products could treat head injuries
The use of 3D printing in the health sector can radically modify patient care, making it economically accessible to all and implementing personalised therapies. The collaboration between the World’s Advanced Saving Project (WASP) and the Banca delle Cellule e del Tessuto Muscoloscheletrico (Bank of Cells and Muscular-Skeletal Tissue), based within the Rizzoli Orthopedic Institute, is enabling revolutionary projects.
