3D Printing for Molds and Dies, Part 1

As adoption of 3D printing spreads throughout the larger sector of industrial manufacturing, the value of the technology as more than just a rapid prototyping tool is becoming increasingly evident. Even when additive manufacturing (AM) isn’t being used to produce end parts, businesses are learning that it can be used for the fabrication of tooling... Read More »

How 3D printing is reshaping Wyoming manufacturing – Gillette News Record

Mechanical engineering Ph.D. candidate Stephan Brinckmann and first-year graduate student Jackson Rambough display a computer model and prototype of a ceramic turbine blade that will be 3D printed during a $1 million research grant to increase gas turbine engine efficiency with 3D-printed parts that have built-in cooling channels. If successful, the project could improve air... Read More »

Australian Researchers 3D Printing Tactile Sensors with TPU and PLA Composites

In the recently published ‘An Ultrasensitive 3D Printed Tactile Sensor for Soft Robotics,’ Australian researchers Saeb Mousavi, David Howard, Chun Wang, and Shuying Wu create a new method for production of piezo-resistive tactile sensors for soft robotics, using FDM 3D printing with thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) and a polylactic acid-graphene (PLA-G) composite. Fabrication of tactile sensors... Read More »

TU Delft Researcher Wins ISSMO/Springer Prize for Space-Time Topology Optimization in Additive Manufacturing

Researchers from TU Delft have not only developed a new method for optimizing structures and their fabrication sequences, but the main author has also won the ISSMO/Springer prize from the International Society of Structural and Multidisciplinary Optimization (ISSMO), due to the impressive ‘Space-Time Topology Optimization for Additive Manufacturing: Concurrent Optimization of Structural Layout and Fabrication...

A day in OESH’s 3D printed shoes

Additive manufacturing has been tip-toeing its way into the footwear industry through 3D printed insoles and midsoles. This has been done mainly by means of Stereolithography (SLA) processes due to the capabilities of elasticity and fine detail.  Nonetheless, OESH Shoes, based in Charlottesville, Virginia, has utilized FFF/FDM 3D printing to create non-marking, lightweight footwear without...

From residual McDonald’s cooking oil to 3D printing resin

A team from the University of Toronto, Scarborough (UTSC) have formulated resin for Stereolithography (SLA) from excess McDonald’s cooking oil. In an effort to reduce waste and establish sustainable materials for high-value commercial 3D printing resin, the oil was processed using a one-step chemical method to create high-resolution objects with features down to 100 micrometers. These parts... Read More »
