Purdue researchers have developed a process which enables them to 3D print extremely viscous materials. Due to this, they should be able to 3D print everything from cookie dough to biomedical implants.
Researchers at ETH Zurich and Caltech developed a 3D printed submarine which doesn't need fuel, electricity, propellant or even an engine. Instead, it exploits temperature changes in the water to complete complex movements.
3D printing may provide a sustainable solution to the current crisis of coral reef death globally. Population growth and the environmental burden that accompanies it has taken a serious toll on the Australian Great Barrier Reef and many other coral reefs over the last few years.
Thanks to the growing proclivity for community driven research, it's now possible to 3D print your own copy of famous ancient fossil Lucy.
Historians used 3D scanning to find out more about a statuette called Venus of Dolní Věstonice, found in 1925 by Czech archaeologists.
We could soon see custom-shaped 3D printed explosives on the battlefield. A Tennessee-based consultancy, called E&G Associates, is aiding the US Navy in the creation of such devices.
Using digital scanning and the Form 2, Digital Smile Design allows dental patients to view the results of their procedure before it happens.
University professor Adam Summers wants to create a library of 3D scans of the world's fish for research and 3D printing.
The Naturalis Biodiversity Center in the Netherlands used 3D scanning and printing to complete the third most complete T-Rex skeleton.
Researchers from ETH Zurich have developed an entirely soft artificial heart made with a 3D printing and lost-wax casting technique.
The legacy of a pair of German glassblowers is being preserved with the help of 3D scanning and printing technology.
Scientists from Temple University in Philadelphia created a prototype for an "electrospun healing" device which uses soy protein and water to print personalized bandages directly onto a patient's skin.
CaloriSMART is a advanced model system that uses magnetocaloric materials to achieve refrigeration cooling. The system was designed by researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's Ames Laboratory.
A conceptual 3D printed idea called the Synthetic Pollenizer by an artist from Brisbane could help us keep bee populations alive and thriving.
3D printing has just been given a speed boost: MIT researchers have developed a 3D printer that is 10 times faster than most consumer models.
Researchers from the Georgia Institute of Technology developed tensegrity structures using 3D printers. The 3D printed objects dramatically expand when exposed to heat in a process which is also known as 4D printing.
