Curious about Nano Technology ———————————— October 9th is the National Nanotechnology Day. Nano technology uses nano particles, those particles are very useful in our every day life style. It can protect our cell phone from water damage, we can make our clothes on demand, we can design, and we protect our house from water damage. […]
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.”
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 […]
Please talk with your Doctor before using any things.
Hello everyone! So I just wanted to show you today the huge difference between regular mascara and the Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes Mascara. I absolutely love the Younique mascara. I have very blonde, thin, and short eyelashes, but when I wear the Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes Mascara you can’t tell. It makes my […]
The current state of the art in consumer home 2D laser printer is that I can expect perfect prints immediately. Take it out of the box, load paper, load toner cartridge, hit print, and out pops a crisp printout. The current state of the art in consumer home 3D printing is not anywhere near that […]
3D Printers Disrupting Copyrights and Patents (2013)
It wasn’t too long ago that DIY 3D printers started making the news in geek circles. It captured the imagination of some and was largely ignored by others. I was somewhere in between until a few days ago. I’ve since slid somewhere closer to imagination, perhaps because someone printed a rotor from a Wankel engine […]
HP has introduced a Multi Jet Fusion technology for 3D printing. The multi jet fusion technology offers better speed and control compared to other printing technologies.
dual carriage system separates functions of writing and coating. Therefore each function is separately optimized for performance and productivity. The Hp technology can transform the properties of each volumetric pixel (voxel). For example, the HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D printers can print each voxel in a different color. HP expects to make millions of colors available for 3D printing. Other than color, HP expects to be able to control other properties, for example, opacity, conductivity, surface roughness, strength, elasticity, to name a few.
Engineers at University of Southampton in the UK have designed and 3D printed the world’s first 3D printed aircraft called SULSA (Southampton University Laser Sintered Aircraft). All parts of the aircraft except an electric motor are 3D printed. In July 2015, HMS Mersey, a vessel of the British Royal Navy launched the 3D printed aircraft as an exercise. The 3D printed aircraft weighs 3 kgs and has a wingspan of 1.5 meters. The aircraft is printed in four parts and can be assembled easily. The aircraft carried a video camera to record its flight. SULSA can be 3D printed for a cost of few thousand dollars. SULSA demonstrates the ability to quickly 3D print aircrafts on and use them for short missions.
3D Printing in Space: A Thermoplastic for Additive Manufacturing from Stratasys
Equipment used in space encounters extreme environment, for example, large temperature changes in short periods of time, extreme radiations, and so on. One problem encountered in space is rapid build-up of electrostatic charge. To address such conditions, Stratasys Advanced Materials has developed ESD PEKK, a thermoplastic for additive manufacturing that has electrostatic dissipative (ESD) qualities. The ESD properties combined with excellent mechanical and thermal properties makes ESD PEKK suitable for advanced electronics applications, for example, for use in space.
