Scientists at Virginia Tech have found a new way to integrate sensors into personalized 3D-printed prosthetics.
Researchers from Duke University and Texas State University have created a new method for 3D printing lithium ion batteries.
The United States Navy has successfully printed a submersible submarine using 3D printing technology.
The next phase of 3-d printing has arrived, and it's set to change everything we know about this exciting technology.
Creating 3d-printed organs has always been a time-consuming and exhaustive affair, but a new innovation from the Wyss University could have us mass-producing hearts in no time.
Although today’s 3D printers are capable of some amazing things, researchers in MIT’s Media Lab are rethinking the technology and expanding its capabilities. They have found a way to bypass a time-intestive step in 3D printing so that hair-like structures can be printed. They have used their new technique to print “hairs” that can perform sensing, adhesion, and actuation.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is now accepting comments and suggestions on a new draft guidance for medical device manufacturers working with additive manufacturing, commonly known as 3D printing.
Boeing describes its new 777X as “the largest and most efficient twin-engine jet in the world.” An essential part of the jet’s design is its composite wings, which are more slender and aerodynamic than previous... Read More...
