New method measures 3-D polymer processing precisely

Recipes for three-dimensional (3D) printing, or additive manufacturing, of parts have required as much guesswork as science. Until now. Resins and other materials that react under light to form polymers, or long chains of molecules,...

3D Printing Glass-Ceramics at the Nanoscale

Fabrication of a true-3D inorganic ceramic with resolution down to nanoscale using sol-gel resist precursor is demonstrated. The method has an unrestricted free-form capability, control of the fill-factor, and high fabrication throughput. A systematic...

3-D printed microscope for medical diagnostics

Researchers have used 3D printing to make an inexpensive and portable high-resolution microscope that is small and robust enough to use in the field or at the bedside. The high-resolution 3D images provided by...

AWACS maintainers at leading edge of 3-D printing

Imagine you’re in aircraft maintenance and a mission is scheduled to fly in the next 24 hours. You need a part that hasn’t been manufactured in more than 30 years. A specially-commissioned replacement is...

3D Universe Introduces Skin Tone Filaments for 3D Printed Prosthetics

As the e-NABLE Community has grown and spread throughout the world, we have not only gotten to see the impact that low cost, 3D printable assistive devices can make on those who are in...

A Revolutionary Change in Vehicle Panel Production featuring Sabic’s UDMAX™ Thermoplastic Composite Tape

SABIC announced at JEC World 2019 a new, cutting-edge technology for producing lightweight, cost-effective and recyclable vehicle panels using its UDMAX™ tape, a unidirectional, fiber-reinforced thermoplastic composite. This innovative technology, which is designed to...

kinetiX—designing auxetic-inspired deformable material structures

This paper describes a group of auxetic-inspired material structures that can transform into various shapes upon compression. We developed four cellular-based material structure units composed of rigid plates and elastic/rotary hinges. Different compositions of...

Shrinking the carbon footprint of a chemical in everyday objects

A new method for synthesizing the epoxides found in plastics, textiles, and pharmaceuticals could be powered by electricity. The biggest source of global energy consumption is the industrial manufacturing of products such as plastics, iron,...

Spray-on antennas could unlock potential of smart, connected technology

The promise of wearables, functional fabrics, the Internet of Things, and their "next-generation" technological cohort seems tantalizingly within reach. But researchers in the field will tell you a prime reason for their delayed "arrival"...

Solvay’s Ixef® PARA enables Zillion Black® single-use instruments

Bastos Viegas uses Ixef® PARA for its Zillion Black® single-use surgical instruments as a cost-effective alternative to stainless steel. The existing array of Zillion Black® single-use instruments (SUIs) are molded from a high-stiffness, medical-grade Ixef®...
