Dachsund Receives 3D-Printed Skull Replacement

What an incredible story! via Johns Hopkins Newsletter Patches, a nine-year-old dachshund, is now cancer-free thanks to a group of researchers. Veterinary surgical oncologist Michelle Oblak from the University of Guelph’s Ontario Veterinary College and Cornell University’s small-animal surgeon Galina Hayes were the researchers who accomplished this veterinary first. They worked in collaboration with medical... Read More »

A Look at the Properties of 3D Printed Tungsten

Tungsten is a dense, robust metal that has a number of valuable applications, particularly in the chemical industry thanks to its corrosion resistance. Its hardness and extremely high melting point, however, have made it a difficult material to 3D print. In a paper entitled “Effect of processing parameters on the densification, microstructure and crystallographic texture... Read More »

Researchers Evaluate 3D Printability of Different Types of Concrete

To 3D print concrete, several parameters must be met. It must be able to be extruded through a nozzle, hold its shape once deposited, and also be able to hold up under the weight of successive layers. In a paper entitled “Evaluation of workability parameters in 3D printing concrete,” a team of researchers measured the... Read More »
