You could soon be manufacturing your own drugs—thanks to 3D printing

Forget those long lines at the pharmacy: Someday soon, you might be making your own medicines at home. That’s because researchers have tailored a 3D printer to synthesize pharmaceuticals and other chemicals from simple, widely available starting compounds fed into a series of water bottle–size reactors. The work, they say, could digitize chemistry, allowing users […]

Rs 500, 10 minutes, and you have access to billion Aadhaar (Indian social security) details

It took just Rs 500, paid through Paytm, and 10 minutes in which an “agent” of the group running the racket created a “gateway” for this correspondent and gave a login ID and password. Lo and behold, you could enter any Aadhaar number in the portal, and instantly get all particulars that an individual may […]

Scientists’ sneaky smartphone software steals 3D printer designs

By placing the smartphone next to a printer, if you know the type of printer, you can listen to it and hear what it’s printing. Then you can reassemble 94% of the original design. Source: Scientists’ sneaky smartphone software steals 3D printer designs

Laser-assisted direct ink writing of planar and 3D metal architectures

The ability to pattern planar and freestanding 3D metallic architectures at the microscale would enable myriad applications, including flexible electronics, displays, sensors, and electrically small antennas. A 3D printing method is introduced that combines direct ink writing with a focused laser that locally anneals printed metallic features “on-the-fly.” To optimize the nozzle-to-laser separation distance, the […]

$99 Smartphone 3D Printer. by OLO 3D Inc.

Tiny and portable, it hardens the resin using the light of the smartphone screen. It uses 4AA batteries for power. X-Y resolution: up to 0.042 mm (quality dep. on device) Z resolution: up to 0.036 mm (0.12 mm in quick-mode) 400cm3

3D printed items can be reversed engineered using a smartphone to listen to the sound of the printing proces

The team, led by Mohammad Al Faruque, director of UCI’s Advanced Integrated Cyber-Physical Systems Lab, showed that a device as ordinary and ubiquitous as a smartphone can be placed next to a machine and capture acoustic signals that carry information about the precise movements of the printer’s nozzle. The recording can then be used to […]

A 3D bioprinting system to produce human-scale tissue constructs with structural integrity

A new way to print 3-D metals and alloys using rust

A team of Northwestern University engineers has created a new way to print three-dimensional metallic objects using rust and metal powders. While current methods rely on vast metal powder beds and expensive lasers or electron beams, Northwestern’s new technique uses liquid inks and common furnaces, resulting in a cheaper, faster, and more uniform process. The […]

3D printing polymer-derived ceramics now possible

Because ceramics cannot be cast or machined easily, three-dimensional (3D) printing enables a big leap in geometrical flexibility. We report preceramic monomers that are cured with ultraviolet light in a stereolithography 3D printer or through a patterned mask, forming 3D polymer structures that can have complex shape and cellular architecture. These polymer structures can be […]

3D Printed Hair

We introduce a technique for 3D printing soft strands, fibers, and bristles using conventional 3D printers. Our work was inspired by the phenomenon that occurs during the operation of a handheld glue gun: when a person extrudes hot glue material and moves the gun away, a “string” of residue often forms unintentionally. The shape, length, […]

3D-printed teeth can kill 99% of bacteria

Researchers at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands have created a process that can manufacture 3D-printed teeth and braces which are actually good for your other teeth, and dental health in general. Source: 3D-printed teeth can kill 99% of bacteria

Chinese Company Constructs the World’s Tallest 3D Printed Building

Chinese company WinSun Decoration Design Engineering Co has expanded the capabilities of 3D printing. After constructing ten houses in under twenty-four hours last year, now they are back with both the world’s tallest 3D printed building – a five-story apartment block – and a 1,100 square meter mansion with internal and external decoration to boot. […]

Chinese company assembles 3D-printed villa in less than 3 hours

A pioneering 3D-printed house just popped up in Xian, China – and Chinese company ZhuoDa “built” the two-story villa in less than three hours. Made up of six 3D-printed modules, the house was assembled like LEGO bricks before a live audience who were then invited to explore the interior. The modular fireproof home can withstand […]

South Korean 3d printer prints thinner than red blood cell

a team of researchers at UNIST has announced that they have developed a high-resolution 3D printing technology that is capable of printing electronic circuits on plastic, metallic or magnetic nanoparticles that are curved and much flexible. According to the team, led by Prof. Jang-Ung Park (School of Materials Science and Engineering), they have succeeded in […]

The Palette: Turn your 3D Printer into a multi-colour, multi-material unit

It’s a little box you put before the output of your printer and it will allow you to change materials and colours, turning your single filament printer into one that can output multiple colours and materials. The Palette: 3D Printing Evolved by Chris Labelle — Kickstarter.

Carbon3D Unveils Breakthrough CLIP 3D Printing Technology, 25-100X Faster

The Continuous Liquid Interface Productiongo technology (CLIP) process relies on a special transparent and permeable window which allows both light and oxygen to get through. Think of it as a large contact lens. The machine then is able to control the exact amount of oxygen and when that oxygen is permitted into the resin pool. […]
