3D printing just might be the answer to everything.
Astronauts aboard the International Space Station have successfully made the first ever satellite launcher 3-D printed in space.
Stem cells transformed into cartilage tissues using 3-D bioprinting technology.
MIT successfully developed a new system capable of 3-D printing the basic structure of an entire building.
We'll be colonizing the Red Planet through 3D printing technology.
Sebastian Pattinson, a postdoctoral student from MIT, has recently created a method to use cellulose as a 3D printing material.
Astronauts may be able to print pizza in space after NASA funded a 3d printing technology. BeeHex will debut the new 3D pizza printing machine this year.
Miles high and good for the environment, the self-cleaning skyscraper design is thought to be the building of the future.
Scientists in China have appeared to have uncovered a biotechnology breakthrough. They have just successfully implanted 3D-bioprinted stem cell grafts in monkeys and were able to promote vascular tissue regeneration.
The 3D printing technology may be the next big thing for prosthetics science as open-source 3-D printing templates are available on the internet. This means that anyone with a 3-D printer will be able to download models, adjust, and improve them without charge. Since owning a prosthetic limb is quite expensive, this method of creating functional and affordable parts will definitely change the future.
Scientists find that the cat’s Velcro-like tongue is the answer to the effectiveness of their self-grooming
Watching the antics of cats may be a form of relieving stress for most people, but a group of researchers has taken this pastime one step further by becoming the first group to 3-D print a cat tongue mimic at 400 percent scale.
Inspired by the vivid colors of the blue tarantula, scientists from Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, with the help of their international colleagues, have discovered a method to replicate nanostructures that generate the same color regardless of the viewing angle.
The list of advances in the field of 3-D printing keeps getting longer. Researchers from the Fraunhofer Institutes for Mechanics of Materials IWM and for Environmental, Safety, and Energy Technology UMSICHT are collaborating with industry partners in the process of producing digitalized insoles for people with diabetes by using new software and the use of 3-D printers. People diagnosed with diabetes may suffer from the nerves in their foot becoming atrophied. Specially made insoles promise relief because they are customized to be very soft in the area of the injury.
