3-D printing with Cellulose

Posted on Updated on

According to John Hart and Sebastian Pattinson, a former postdoc in mechanical engineering who is now a lecturer at the University of Cambridge in the U.K., “demonstrated a technique using the world’s most abundant natural polymer-cellulose. at MIT,” says early education on 3-D printing is the key to helping the technology expand as an industry. They are very much enjoyed creating and teaching the course and they are proud of what the students did, and what it means about the future potential of additive manufacturing.
Cellulose offers many advantages over current plastics-based feedstocks: It’s inexpensive, renewable, biodegradable, mechanically robust, and chemically versatile. In addition, it’s widely used in pharmaceuticals, packaging, clothing, and a variety of other products, many of which could be customized using 3-D printing”.

3D printed Beehive

Posted on Updated on

 

For so many decades we couldn’t find the identification of colony collapse disorder, a phenomenon marked by widespread loss of honey bee colonies, researchers are continuously working to solve the ecologically complex problem of how to mitigate ongoing losses of honey bees and other pollinating species. We need to track specific impacts on bee health. It could be carefully controlled and kept pesticide free.
3D printed honeycomb is based on food grade material.

 

According to Researchers at the Carl R. Woese Institute for Genomic Biology at the University of Illinois and J Group Robotics,” used specially developed 3D-printed plastic honeycombs that mimic the hive environment, in order to monitor queen egg-laying behaviors. They develop a complete Automated Bee Hive to extract honey in the purest form. The entire beehive is nature-friendly as well as using the latest Robotics, 3D Printing & Production friendly mechanism. The Robotic Bee Hive shall extract the purest form of Honey without Killing or Disturbing the Honey Bees. “This compact Robotics Bee Hive shall be installed at every village driving the Women Empowerment and supplying the Purest form of Kinds of honey to the FMCG’s”

3-D Printing Ice Cream(3D Printed Food recipe (Chew ))

Posted on Updated on

Graduate students learned how to 3-D print ice cream in an additive manufacturing course at MIT.

According to John Hart, the Mitsui Career Development Associate Professor in Contemporary Technology and Mechanical Engineering at MIT,” says early education on 3-D printing is the key to helping the technology expand as an industry. I very much enjoyed creating and teaching the course and I’m proud of what the students did, and what it means about the future potential of additive manufacturing. The students’ final projects have included printers that they built specially to print molten glass and even soft-serve ice cream”.

Housing construction with 3D concrete printers

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.”
