Hierarchical 3-D Printing of Nano porous Gold

Posted on Updated on

According to Chris Spadaccini the director of LLNL’s Center for Engineered Materials and Manufacturing, “There are a whole lot of scientific and engineering challenges left, but it could have the significant impact, scaling up should be easier with small-scale reactors because you can parallelize. You could have an array of small 3-D reactors together instead of one large vessel enabling you to control the chemical reaction process more effectively. The Monolithic nanoporous metals, derived from dealloying, have a unique bicontinuous solid/void structure that provides both large surface area and high electrical conductivity, making them ideal candidates for various energy applications”.

3D printed silicone models

Posted on Updated on

3D printed silicone models. According to WACKER and engineer Hannah Riedle from the University of Erlangen, “the Munich-based chemical group, is currently expanding its ACEO 3D printing services for silicone rubber and announced the opening of a US-based printing lab later this year. The facility, which will be located at WACKER’s R&D center for silicone’s in Ann Arbor (MI), is the company’s first regional 3D printing lab outside of Germany.
We can print 3D silicone models based on medical image data that we obtain from magnetic resonance imaging or computed tomography”.

18 K GOLD 3D Printed Enamel Pin

Posted on Updated on

18 K GOLD 3D Printed Enamel Pin. In this video, they used 18 K GOLD 3D printed pin to create ‘Pin’.
We can create any kind of pin. We just have to design something.
After designing, order to get the 3D print pin. We can be creative with gold and silver instead of gold and white or any color we like.
Instead of enamel paint, we can use nail polish.
This will be cool fidget spinner.

3-D-printed electrical and wireless sensors “smart cap”

According to Sung-Yueh Wu, Liwei Lin and Chen Yang from the Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of California, Berkeley,” They build a 3-D-printed electrical and wireless sensors to detect the levels of bacteria in the milk”.
This applicator will sense spoiled milk. We can save money by buying the big container of milk every time.

US Marines construct 3D-printed concrete barracks

Posted on Updated on

US Marines construct 3D-printed concrete barracks in U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center in Champaign, Illinois.

According to the Marine Corps Capt. Matthew Friedell, AM project officer in MCSC’s Operations and Programs/G-3,” the team used a design model on an old computer, concrete, and a 3D printer. The concrete was then put through the 3D printer. It took approximately 40 hours to complete the barracks hut. If there was a robot to do the mixing and pumping, the building could easily be created in one day. This capability would enable a great partnership with the local community because it is low cost, easy to use, and robotics could print the buildings.”

3D printing used in Volkswagen production

Posted on Updated on

According to Martin Goede, he is the Head of Technology Planning and Development at Volkswagen, “A complete vehicle won’t come out of a 3D printer any time soon. The goal is to integrate printed structural parts into the next vehicle generation. Over the long term, we expect to see continuous growth in lot sizes, component size and technical requirements – all the way up to components that are the size of soccer balls and are produced in lot sizes of more than 100,000 units per year.
Volkswagen has been using the process for more than 20 years now but not in mass production. In prototype construction, 3D printing has already proven itself to be a practical, effective solution. It would simply take too much work to make casting and press tools for components that are produced in small lot sizes”.
