SPI Lasers explores the 3D printing revolution

3D printing has been around for decades but it didn't really gain traction until the 1990s. Until recently, only a handful of industries used additive manufacturing but that's all about to change. 3D printing is currently one of the hottest and most interesting advancements in technology and has the potential to revolutionise all sorts of industries from automotive and aerospace to electronics and healthcare.

3D printed tubes guide broken nerve endings together

3D printed tubes guide broken nerve endings together
University of Sheffield scientists have succeeded in using a 3D printed guide to help nerves damaged in traumatic incidents repair themselves. The team used the Nerve Guidance Conduit (NGC) device to repair nerve damage in animal models and say the method could help treat many types of traumatic injury. The NGC is a framework of tiny tubes, which guide the damaged nerve ends towards each other so that they can repair naturally.

3D printing process uses tunable photochemistry

3D printing process uses tunable photochemistry
A 3D printing technology developed by Silicon Valley startup, Carbon3D, enables objects to rise from a liquid media continuously rather than being built layer-by-layer as they have been for the past 25 years. The technology allows ready-to-use products to be made 25 to 100 times faster than other methods and creates previously unachievable geometries that open opportunities for innovation not only in health care and medicine, but also in other major industries such as automotive and aviation.

Metal 3D printing set to transform jewellery & watch making

Metal 3D printing set to transform jewellery & watch making
The jewellery and watchmaking industry is set to enter a new era as students from Birmingham City University gear up to begin training on how to use a new world-pioneering technology. The Direct Metal 3D Printing technology, from Cooksongold, will free designers from the constraints of conventional manufacturing technologies, meaning that once ‘impossible’ complex and costly designs will now become a reality for jewellery and watchmakers.

3D printed car could be available before the end of 2015

Once upon a time, the simple glass of the car windshield began to incorporate printed antennas and heaters. Fast forward to 2015, and the world's first car with a 3D printed load-bearing structure and body is the Strati, developed by US startup Local Motors. In 2014, the company undertook a challenge to build a 3D car live on the internet. In late 2015, the first street legal versions are expected to be delivered to customers.
