3D Print Metallic Glass

Posted on Updated on

 

Yale Professor Jan Schroers and his graduate students have developed some unique uses for metallic glasses, a particularly tough metallic alloy that can be molded into useful products (like cell phone cases) at relatively lower temperatures and pressures. According to Yale Professor Jan Schroers and his research team,” they used a new approach to 3D print objects from the metallic glass a relatively new material stronger than even the best metals, but with the pliability of plastic”.

3D printed active materials for robots

Posted on Updated on

3D printed active materials for robots, inspiration from invertebrates.

According to Dr. Ed Habtour, ARL researcher who specializes in nonlinear structural dynamics and lead author Ghazaleh Haghiashtiani, “Current military robots have two major limitations that restrict them from mimicking the locomotion of biological organisms. Unlike current 3-D printed DEAs, the new fabrication method does not require post-processing steps, such as assembly, drying or annealing. With the new 3-D printing method, the Solider can take advantage of the unique actuation properties of soft DEAs at the fundamental materials level with microscale resolution and complexity, with minimal prior expertise.”

BigRep 3D Printer Reviews.
We always skeptical about the future of 3D printing and manufacturing. Nowadays technology is with the combination of Artificial Intelligence, Nano, Virtual Reality and 3D Printers.

3D printers are speeding up the manufacturing process. We are using 3D, 4D, and 5D printing. We already know parts can be printed, retrieved and installed by a robot.

The combination of Artificial Intelligence and 3D Printers

Posted on Updated on

The combination of Artificial Intelligence and 3D Printers. The German engineering firm KUKA Robotics is prototyping a robotic arm that works with a MakerBot 3D printer to speed up the manufacture of robotic arms. Parts can be printed, retrieved and installed by a robot.
