3D Printing Lab at University of Texas, Arlington

—————————————————————–

According to the University of Texas, Arlington (UTA),” they are making 3D printing readily accessible to students.  UTA has introduced a $200k lab with 3d printers and other equipment.  The goal of the lab is to make sure that students are familiar with various technologies including 3D printing technology when they go to the real world.  UTA is offering classes to teach basic operations of the 3D printer and related software”.:)

3D Printing Food

3D Printing Food

According to the Natural Machines,” has introduced Foodini, a 3D printer for food.  Foodini is a 3D printer that uses edible ingredients to 3D print food items.  Foodini can make salty, sweet, savory, or other types of food.  Foodini is connected to the internet.  A user interface allows a user to select what they want to print and the user interface lets the user know what ingredients need to be put in each capsule.  Currently the user loads ingredients into the 3D printer.  However, Natural Machines is working with food manufacturers to create ready-made capsules that can be loaded into the 3D printer.  The current version of the 3D printer simply 3D prints the food which then has to be cooked.  Natural Machines is developing a version of the 3D printer that will produce cooked food”.:)

“You’re not gonna walk into a kitchen appliance store, see a 3D food printer and say ‘Hey I need one of those, let me buy one!'” Ms. Lynette Kucsma, the co-founder of Natural Machines, Barcelona said, “It’s too new of a concept, people don’t know what it is.”

Consumers in more than 80 countries have expressed interest in the device. At about $2,000.

3D Printing the Eta Carinae Star System

——————————————————

According to the NASA’s  Scientists,” Eta Carinae is a bright star system consisting of two stars surrounded by gas.  Scientists have been using computer simulations to study the star systems.  Computer simulations can be difficult to study on a 2D screen.  Therefore scientists used the 3d printer to create a 3D model of the star system. The 3D model makes it easier to study the star system.
