Microstructures Self-Assemble into New Materials

A new process developed at Caltech makes it possible for the first time to manufacture large quantities of materials whose structure is designed at a nanometer scale—the size of DNA's double helix. Pioneered by Caltech...

miniFactory Ultra, PEEK and ULTEM 3D printing

miniFactory, a Finnish 3D printer manufacturer, has released the miniFactory Ultra 3D printer for high-temperature materials, such as PEEK and PEKK. Olli Pihlajamäki, Sales and Marketing Director, explained that high-strength polymers can become warped...

Plastic Gears Are the Future

Plastic gearing has been increasing in usage as designers better understand their benefits and limitations. These gears can be produced by hobbing or stamping or, for large-volume runs, by induction molding. Some of the...

US Military Researches Water Bottle Recycling for 3D Printing in the Field

Dr. Nicole Zander, ARL, demonstrates equipment for Capt. Anthony Molnar, U.S. Marine Corps. Every branch of the US military has been exploring 3D printing for a number of applications, finding it to be a...
Jianhua “Joshua” Tong, left, and Ph.D. student Shenglong Mu work in their Sirrine Hall lab, where they are working on new technology that combines 3D printing and laser processing.

Lasers could take 3-D printing to next level

Cars that go more than 1,000 miles on a single fill-up and smartphones that can run for days without recharging are among the possibilities that could come out of a new Clemson University research...

3D printed electric motors using iron, copper and ceramics

Using metallic and ceramic pastes, extruded layer by layer into a predetermined form and then sintered together, researchers from the Chemnitz University of Technology Professorship of Electrical Energy Conversion Systems and Drives were able...

4D printing of elastomer-derived ceramic structures

Four-dimensional (4D) printing involves conventional 3D printing followed by a shape-morphing step. It enables more complex shapes to be created than is possible with conventional 3D printing. However, 3D-printed ceramic precursors are usually difficult...

Colossus unveils large-scale 3D printer for recycled plastics with Mitsubishi Chemical

Colossus, a machine development startup based in Genk, Belgium, has released what is said to be the largest Fused Granular Fabrication (FGF) 3D printer specifically designed to process recycled materials. “Clients requested a way to...
