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.
Comedian Demetri Martin does a bit about the phrase “sort of”. He says: “Sort of’ is such a harmless thing to say… sort of. It’s just a filler. Sort of… it doesn’t really mean anything. But after certain things, sort of means everything. Like… after “I love you”… or “You’re going to live.” SCADboard is…

Every year 3D Printers getting improve and more user friendly. This year’s categories are based on mainly, “production by consumers”. 3D Printers have better quality and more features so we can use 3d printers easily.
Makergear M2 is $1,825 it is in the top rating . The rating is 9.2, and The Ultimaker 2+ is in the top list too and rating is 9.1. It build incredible quality prints.
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.
Riboflavin is Better for 3D Printed Medical Implants
We know that material we are using for 3D printing is different what we use for eating or using for humans. Specially for making any uses for health reason we always think so much before using anything.Scientist form North Carolina State University have been doing research about those 3D printing materials for decades. Search for non-toxic, light-sensitive 3D printing materials, biomedical researchers recently discovered that riboflavin does the job quite nicely.
The Stratasys J750 3D Printer introduces one-stop realism with full colors and multiple materials. The J750’s goal is simple: to put the “rapid” in rapid prototyping. Color comes naturally to the J750: neutrals and neons, shadows and highlights, textures and gradients — over 360,000 colors automatically mapped from your design software for photorealistic models. Users can […]
Ultimaker’s 3D printers will now ship out with a backpack, so you can take them anywhere you want. Now, we don’t know why you’d want to to lug a big device around, but we won’t judge. Maybe you want to impress a cute, geeky date or print out anything you want to on the go. Or maybe, like the team behind 3DPrinterOS — those two dudes in the picture above — you actually need to carry a printer with you for something important, such as teaching 3D printing classes. Whatever your reasons are, this backpack designed to carry the printer in its foam packaging is at least a safer option than regular bags. So, next time a friend moans about the need for a special weapon that can up their Pokémon Go game, you can say “I got you, bro.”
