4D printer could accelerate technology

Posted on Updated on

American Chemical Society is researching about 4D Printer. They have the ACS 255th National Meeting & Exposition in New Orleans.
4D printer could accelerate technology. Scientists report that they have developed a powerful new printer that could streamline the creation of self-assembling structures that can change shape after being exposed to heat and other stimuli.
American Chemical Society says this unique technology could accelerate the use of 4D printing in aerospace, medicine, and other industries.:)

Responsible use of high risk 3D Printed medical devices

Posted on Updated on

Standard parts that are too complex or too expensive to be built by other production techniques.
Now, “standard” 3D printed medical devices are responsibly use of high risk designs through rapid prototyping with 3D printing.
They can test new medical devices on realistic medical models to quickly gather clinically relevant performance feedback, without scheduling expensive animal/cadaver surrogate testing.
The guidance defines AM as “a process that builds an object by sequentially building 2-dimensional (2D) layers and joining each to the layer below, allowing device manufacturers to rapidly produce alternative designs without the need for retooling, and to create complex devices built as a single piece.”
This manufacturing process is used extensively in the aerospace, architecture, consumer products, and, more recently, medical industries.
