3d printed dissolvable medical implants
In the human body, magnesium is an essential mineral that actually helps maintain the structural integrity of bones. It also degrades quickly when exposed to oxygen, water, and salts, all of which are abundant in the body.

According to assistant professor at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, mechanical and materials engineering Michael Sealy, “Instead of having these permanent metal implants, let’s have one that degrades over time. Let’s eliminate this whole idea of a second surgery to have these implants removed. Instead of peening as a surface treatment, where I just hammer my outer surface, I’m going to print so many layers, and then hammer it, and then print a few more layers, and then hammer that,”

Aerosol Jet technology enables 3D printed electronics

Posted on Updated on

According to Aerosol Jet technology,” it can be ‘scaled’ in two distinct ways such as
Increased Print Feature Range or Multiplexing for Production.
Top Ten Aerosol Jet Advantages for 3D Printed Electronics, Digital printing – no masks or stencils, No plating or etching required, Feature sizes from 10 microns to millimeters,Print thickness from 100 nanometers to 10’s of microns Conformal printing on non-planar and 3D surfaces, Print interconnects and active/passive components,Print using commercially-available materials, Print bio-materials, Print on plastic, ceramic, and metallic substrates, Scalable to support high-volume production requirements”.

The 3D Printing Kinematics Dress Design

Posted on Updated on

The 3D Printing Kinematics Dress Design.
We can boost our knowledge with 3D printing technology.
According to Cooper Hewitt, “New technology for kinematics dress design and 3D-Printing Process.
The Kinematics dress represents a new approach to manufacturing in which design, engineering, customization, and simulation are part of one seamless system, so that the object, once fabricated, is fully finished and complete”.
