Housing construction with 3D concrete printers

Posted on Updated on

 

According to Professor Jay Sanjayan, the Swinburne University of Technology,” Each block of this freestanding structure is printed using a special cement composite. Rather than factory conditions, we have to print out in the weather.

Instead of a few kilos of materials, we have to handle tonnes. And although we don’t need the same accura­cy as the aerospace industry, we have to trade that for the low cost.”

Posted on Updated on

According to  New China TV,”  3D Printing is getting real in construction. China’s first 3D-printed pedestrian bridge will open to the public in a park next January. With a designed lifespan of 3 decades, the bridge took the engineers only 35 days to print out”.

WSU researchers 3D printed glucose biosensors

Posted on Updated on

WSU researchers create 3D-printed glucose biosensors. According to Arda Gozen and Yuehe Lin, faculty in the School of Mechanical and Materials Engineering, the research has been published in the journal Analytica Chimica Acta,” 3D printing can enable manufacturing of biosensors tailored specifically to individual patients. This can potentially bring down the cost. For large‑scale use, the printed biosensors will need to be integrated with electronic components on a wearable platform. But, manufacturers could use the same 3D printer nozzles used for printing the sensors to print electronics and other components of a wearable medical device, helping to consolidate manufacturing processes and reduce costs, even more.

Our 3D printed glucose sensor will be used as the wearable sensor for replacing painful finger pricking. Since this is a noninvasive, needleless technique for glucose monitoring, it will be easier for children’s glucose monitoring”.

3D Printed artistic phone case

Posted on Updated on

If you would like to have a Starry Night case or a pancake art case. Even though If you want your phone case looks like a robot. You can make bigger cases like Tablets or game controllers:)

Imagination enhances your own artwork, using the neat multi-color printer.
