3D printing electronic components and circuits are becoming a reality. Find out how the process is being used to produce basic electronic components, circuitry, and printed circuit boards.
One of the goals of low cost 3D printing is to be able to create medical and scientific devices from it. Diagnostically capable microfluidic models represent the first step into this exciting new world of 3D printing and biosensing capabilities.
Thanks to ridiculously high prices, extra laboratory supplies are often hard to come by. Not anymore! Presenting some of the coolest 3D printed lab equipment.
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.
A new class of adhesives -- inspired by the mighty Gecko -- have been developed by researchers in California to help soft robotic fingers get a better grip.
Algorithm developed by engineering researchers at University of Michigan allows desktop 3D printers to boost speed without impacting quality.
CADSkills has developed a titanium 3D printed implant called AMSJI which saves patients from discomfort and speeds up recovery.
A British twenty-year-old underwent surgery to remove a brain tumor and received a 3D printed skull implant after complications.
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 at Wyss Institute combine 3D printing of stretchable inks with electronic components to make wearables more flexible.
Austrian researchers have developed a process to create objects that can self-transform from 2D to 3D without external influence.
Researchers from ETH Zurich have developed an entirely soft artificial heart made with a 3D printing and lost-wax casting technique.
