3D Print-Fashion & Cosmetics -3D Printed lipstick applicator for perfect makeup.:)
Researchers in the U.K. have developed a 3D printed makeup applicator, which means perfect lipstick every time.
It is for fun to see how we can use 3D Printers in different ways. We can always use our imagination to create any useful thing to satisfy our inner scientist.
3D Printing technology to make Rolls Royce’s parts and how it will work. Future is 3D Printing.
Using 3D Printing techniques they are able to make shapes that they never couldn’t with standard manufacturing. According to Rolls Royce’s Head of Additive Layer Manufacturing, Mr. Neil Mantle, is using the technology to develop better and more efficient aerospace components.:)

3D Printing is emerging in every field these days. A recent Harvard Business School grad has come up with an idea to make the DIY for cosmetics.
“The makeup industry makes a whole lot of money on a whole lot —,” Grace Choi told an eager crowd at Tech Crunch Disrupt. “They do this by charging a huge premium on one thing that technology provides for free, and that one thing is color.” Choi also noticed that makeup consumers aren’t always loyal to certain brands, but rather focused on convenience.
The Mink costs less than $300, with plans to launch later in the year. Watching something? See a color you like? Grab it off the screen and print it out in the form of makeup — lipstick, eyeshadow, foundation, etc — with the Mink printer.
They are use using FDA approve ink. We don’t need extra new software.:)
3-D printers can assemble raw materials into very complex products. Researchers had previously fabricated a single blood vessel, which amounted to no more than a long and slender tube. The next hurdle is to create complex, branching networks of blood vessels.
A team of engineers led by Dr. Shaochen Chen of the University of California, San Diego, aimed to improve on current 3-D printers to better engineer complex tissues like blood vessel networks. Their research was supported by NIH’s National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB). Results were published online in advance of the April 2017 issue of Biomaterials.
“Almost all tissues and organs need blood vessels to survive and work properly. This is a big bottleneck in making organ transplants, which are in high demand but in short supply,” says Chen. “3-D bioprinting organs can help bridge this gap, and our lab has taken a big step toward that goal.”
The results show that a complex tissue resembling blood vessels can be formed using a 3-D printer. The ultimate challenge for this research team is to engineer heart tissue with a complex network of blood vessels. Such tissues might be used to replace damaged heart muscle or for drug testing. 🙂
