Electrical engineers from the Chemnitz University of Technology have achieved a world first; they've 3D printed a working electric motor from iron, copper and ceramic materials.
Engineers at Rutgers University have created a 3D printed smart gel that walks underwater. It can also grab objects and move them.
Credit card skimming is a disease. Meet the cure. The New York City Police Department is testing a "skim reaper" to detect and prevent credit card fraud. It's based on a 3D printed prototype by researchers from the University of Florida.
Algorithm developed by engineering researchers at University of Michigan allows desktop 3D printers to boost speed without impacting quality.
Researchers at the University of Toronto have developed a portable 3D skin printer that can repair deep wounds in two minutes or less.
Researchers at Washington State University find that natural cures combined with biomedical devices prompt bone health, growth. In this case, 3D printed ceramic bone scaffolds coated with curcumin, a compound of the spice turmeric.
In an exciting new study, researchers at the University of Minnesota demonstrate how a customized, low-cost 3D printer can print electronics onto a moving hand.
Researchers at the University of Buffalo have invented 3D printed dentures which can be used to deliver drugs among those highly susceptible to infection, such as the elderly, hospitalized or disabled patients.
The US Army is exploring ways to convert discarded plastic bottles into recycled PET filament. Soliders will become even more self-sufficient in the battlefield by 3D printing useful spare parts from waste material.
Researchers from USC Viterbi School of Engineering have developed 3D printed metamaterials that can switch between active control and passive states, enabling control of acoustic and optical waves.
By embedding platelets into a 3D printed mixture of cells and gel, a team of researchers at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln hope to improve the healing properties of tissue implants and skin grafts with printable body tissue.
Engineers at Temple University in Philadelphia take inspiration from the insect kingdom for their 3D printed surgical needle design; the stinger of the humble honeybee.
Inspired by movies like Iron Man and Star Wars, researchers from Brigham Young University in Utah have developed a breakthrough in "free-space volumetric display". This holographic method is capable of creating full-color graphics in thin air using particles in space.
Vader Systems is a start-up run by a family. Together they'e invented a liquid metal 3d printer which could transform additive manufacturing.
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.
A sheet of bioprinted hydrogels -- inspired by the electric eel -- is capable of delivering 110 volts of electricity. It has potential to become a soft power source which draws on a biological system's chemical energy.
The humble art of knitting takes on a whole new dimension; new software can convert any 3D model into a pattern to create knitted replicas.
