Researchers Use 3D Printing and Basic Electronic Components to Make Neuroscience More Accessible

While I was worse in math, science was also not one of my strong suits in school. So anything that makes it easier for students to better understand these complex subjects is a good idea, in my humble opinion. Tom Baden, a professor of neuroscience at the University of Sussex, has been collaborating with his... Read More »

A closer look at the developing electronics 3D printing industry

Electronics 3D printing is an area of additive still in its infancy. With plenty of space for potential commercial competition, it is interesting to note upcoming developments in the field from the research sphere. Last month, 3D Printing Industry published an article about a team from the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) who demonstrated the... Read More »

UTEP creates “world first” volumetric circuit with automated 3D printing

The Electromagnetics and Photonics Lab (EM Lab) of the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) has developed an automated process for 3D printing electronics. Incorporating all pre-made components, (e.g. metallic tracks, integrated circuits and transistors) and assembly, the technique enables the fabrication of volumetric circuits with unconventional shapes. EM Lab research assistant Cesar Valle explains, “Typically,... Read More »
