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.
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.
