Some of the greatest 3D printing inventions were made at MIT. Here’s how one of the most advanced universities is making 3D printing easier.
Researchers from MIT may have just paved the way for using cellulose - the world's most abundantly available natural polymer - in 3D printing.
MIT researchers used 3D printing to make flexible devices which "remember" their original shapes and can transform accordingly.
Researchers from MIT CSAIL and the Amsterdam Institute for Advanced Metropolitan Solutions are working on a project called the RoBoat which will free up road traffic in cities with a network of canals. The boats are autonomous and can even come together to create floating structures, such as bridges.
MIT researchers make it easy to build robots with a system called Interactive Robogami so you can design, print and assemble in five hours.
MIT researchers are developing an autonomous construction rig that uses 3D printing and robotics to quickly create structures.
3D printing is set to get a lot faster thanks to startup Daqri that are using lasers to cure a light-activated monomer into solid plastic.
Researchers at Harvard and MIT have 3D printed lightweight porous honeycombs with tunable stiffness geometry and density using a ceramic foam.
Is it furniture? Is it art? Is it a musical instrument? One thing‘s for sure: The 3D printed chaise is an outright beautiful piece of art.
Researchers from MIT, Draper, and Brigham and Women’s Hospital have developed a 3D printed ingestible capsule that can be controlled wirelessly to deliver drugs to patients.
BMW and MIT's Self-Assembly Lab have collaborated to develop "liquid printed pneumatics", the first reported 3D printed inflatable material that can morph from one state to another and expand into any shape or function.
Students from MIT have created a prototype 3D printed device, AlterEgo, that can recognize the words you mouth when silently talking to yourself and interpret them as commands.
New online course from MIT and Boeing to teach professionals how to invent and implement innovative new applications for additive manufacturing.
A team of researchers from MIT CSAIL have developed ColorFab, a platform that enables the creation of 3D printed objects that change color after production. This process could be integrated into the fashion and jewelry industry, and would help promote waste reduction.
MIT showcases its rapid liquid printing process at Design Miami, 3D printing tote bags, lamps, and other art objects.
MIT engineers developed new 3D printing inks from bacteria cells and hope to one day be able to print living computational, wearable platforms.
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.
