According to Bizjournals,¨ Dr. Sanna Siddiqui, assistant professor of mechanical engineering at Florida Poly, received a nearly $150,000 grant from the National Science Foundation on Tuesday. She will lead efforts to research the durability and longevity of 3D-printed, nickel-based materials used in jet and rocket engines.¨
The Bison 3D printer is helpful to print objects using Virtolite, Ferrolite, and other kinds of resin materials.
According to co-founder of Printed Farms Jim Ritter and Fredrik Wannius,¨The closed shell construction system produces a hurricane-, flood-resistant building taking sheet rock out of the walls and using an almost water-impermeable print material.
The material arrives in super sacks and is loaded into a silo. The material is mixed [in the system] with water and pumped into the hopper of the 3D printer.¨
