NC State’s enthusiasts are doing lot of work for Microfluids. They found the liquid metal can be transform into 3d printed product.
This is fast and simple technique for making human body parts or metal objects.
According to Sidra Waheed, Joan M. Cabot, Niall P. Macdonald, Trevor Lewis,
3D printing has the potential to significantly change the field of microfluidics. The ability to fabricate a complete microfluidic device in a single step from a computer model has obvious attractions.
Student Straigtens His Own Teeth by 3D Printing His Braces
Amos Dudley, an intern at NJIT used 3D Printer to make his clear braces. Usually getting work done to straighten your teeth can be quite expensive. Amos managed to straighten his teeth in $60.
Due to his interesting story, Formlabs, a Massachusetts based company that manufactures 3D printers offered him a job. Formlabs was founded in 2011 by Maxim Lobovsky, Natan Linder, and David Cranor of MIT.
According to Lobovsky, founder of Formlabs, “Amos’s work pushes the limits of 3D printing applications. That kind of inventiveness is exactly what our customers hope to achieve with our products.”
University of Buffalo student Zack Vader has created a machine that prints three-dimensional objects using liquid metal.
According to Professor Edward P. Furlani of Chemical and Biological Engineering and Electrical Engineering departments of University at Buffalo, Vader’s process uses a magnetic field to manipulate conductive fluids. The magnetic field is used to create pressure for squeezing the liquid out of an ejector nozzle.
According to Furlani “It’s a transformative technology. It’s very exciting interdisciplinary engineering. I think its application base will continue to broaden and expand for the foreseeable future.”
According to Chi Zhou, Assistant Professor at University of Buffalo, “I can see at this stage that it can complement traditional metal printing, but later, maybe 10 years later, it can dominate the metal printing market because it can print better quality, cheaper and faster.”
Vader’s 3-D printer can be used in future for making custom knee and hip replacements.
BUFFALO, N.Y. — A father and son team in the START-UP NY program have invented a liquid metal printing machine that could represent a significant transformation in manufacturing. A breakthrough idea five years ago by former University at Buffalo student Zack Vader, then 19, has created a machine that prints three-dimensional objects using liquid metal.
3D printing reduce the work time and it has solution and advancement for the medical field. Carsten Engel is biomedical engineer from the University of Brussels (ULB).currently he is working as a researcher at SIRRIS (Collective Centre of the Belgian Technology Industry) which has the biggest European Additive Manufacturing machine parc. His main work involves R&D projects in the field of biomedical and aerospace applications.

Researchers unveil new 3D printable implant material that facilitates bone regeneration
3D printing is quickly becoming an integral part of the implant industry, where it is taking over business with custom-made and unique 3D printed implants. However, even these are not magical solutions. Though they provide a much better fit, they are still followed by months or even years of painful rehabilitation. To make matters worse, […]
In the year 2000, the music business was still strong. Record companies produced albums and shipped these physical objects to the stores that sold them. The internet was slowly becoming a system of mass consumption and distribution, but most consumers still purchased physical media.
