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
Smart ink has been created for the 3D printer. The 3D printer uses this ink to turn structures into objects. These objects can change both color and shape. Giving life to 3D objects it will pave the way for a new generation of printing. Most 3D objects that are printed do not have molecular properties the smart ink is bringing
