3D Printing News Alert(3D-printed tissues for injuries)

Posted on Updated on

According to Sean Bittner, a third-year bioengineering graduate student at Rice, a National Science Foundation fellow and lead author of the paper, “3D-printed tissues for injuries. Athletes are disproportionately affected by these injuries, but they can affect everybody. I think this will be a powerful tool to help people with common sports injuries.
For the most part, the composition will be the same from patient to patient. There’s porosity included so vasculature can grow in from the native bone. We don’t have to fabricate the blood vessels ourselves.”

3D Printing News Alert(ORNL’s 3D printing creativity)

Posted on Updated on

According to the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory ORNL’s Brian Post, the project’s advanced manufacturing engineer, Diana Hun, lead buildings researcher on the project. We didn’t know if 3D-printed molds could be made to work for the precast industry. But we thought it was worthwhile to examine the potential.
With the Domino project, the challenge was to find the right solution for a job that required durable molds that could be used numerous times. We proved that each 3D printed mold could cast at least 200 concrete parts, which was key to meeting the project’s schedule.
Each mold takes between 8 to 11 hours to print and 8 hours to the machine to the desired surface finish”.

3D Printing News Alert(Baker Hughes GE latest industrial X-ray CT technology and 3D printing)

Posted on Updated on

According to Electronic Times Internet Reporter Eunjung Judy Yu(judy6956@etnews.com), and etnews,”major additive and industrial manufacturing business are switching to revolutionary CT technology from BHGE for the inspection of raw additive materials and 3D printed parts.
‘Phoenix v is the industry’s first high-tech X-ray CT inspection system with 300kV microfocus tubes and 180kV nano focus tubes. It provides high-resolution 3D images and supports fast and accurate quality inspection for batteries, sensors, electronic assemblies, and automobile parts. The innovative scatter correction technology ‘scatter|correct’ provides precise 3D image analysis with minimal scattering, and the 16-megapixel digital detector technology delivers accurate and sharp images at speed 2-3 times faster than conventional DXR detectors. It can be used in quality inspection for sophisticated batteries, light metal casting, 3D printing parts, and composite material parts, and it is also able to mount 3D measurement technology conforming to German industry standards (VDI)”.

UPrinting our food with 3D printer

Posted on Updated on

According to Yahoo Finance, A pair of entrepreneurs van Doleweerd and Vita Broeken from the Eindhoven University of Technology Netherlands, “they did research with Upprinting food, they are creating an attractive food experience from food which otherwise would have been thrown away.
Researchers told Yahoo, for example, old bread, in combination with fruits and vegetables. We create a printable puree from those residual food flows and print it in nice shapes to make it look attractive again. After printing, we bake it and dehydrate it to create a crunchy structure long shelf life. The food can be implemented very nicely in dishes, and people can eat it again. Currently, researchers are focusing on high-end restaurants,”
