When people imagine a 3D printer, most think of metal or wood, however, a Canadian company called Genecis, have taken tossed out food particles and created a revolutionary material that is used for printing. There are many companies that use a these printer to help with manufacturing needs, but their waste is used resourcefully. However, what happens to the companies
A team at the Russian Academy of Sciences has found that printing in high-resolution 3D removes some of the problems associated with technology. 3D printing when using two-photon lithography can print objects on a molecular scale. This is very valuable to the medical field in areas of; 1. Delivery of medicine, 2. Regeneration of tissue, 3. Chemical Synthesis and, 4.
Liquid 3D Printing: Berkeley Lab Scientists Create Complex All-Liquid 3D Structures from Water and Oil
When you think of 3D printing a solid object comes to mind yet scientists at Berkeley Lab can print liquids. They have modified a printer so that it prints a liquid tube containing liquids. They did this by injecting water into silicone oil. Creating Water Threads The scientists have a vision where their liquid objects can be used in manufacturing
While 3D printing is powerful in the manufacturing industry there is a wide variety of materials and printers. Many companies struggle to find the right printer for their business. Criteria for Finding the Correct Printer There is a list of criteria that will help a company find the right printer for their company. This criterion is; 1. File-to-Finished Part Speed,
