4D Printing programmable textiles

Posted on Updated on

According to the comments from the videos, ” 4D printing Programmable Textiles looks like, Lays potato chips are made. Once produced on 3D printers, objects made of programmable materials continue to take shape, folding, unfolding, or assembling themselves in response to outside stimuli such as light, movement, heat, pressure, or water.

The programmable Materials consist of material compositions designed to become highly dynamic in form and function. Yet, they are as cost-effective as traditional materials, easily fabricated, and capable of flat-pack shipping and self-assembly. These new materials include self-transforming carbon fiber, printed wood grain, custom textile composites, and other rubbers/plastics, which offer unprecedented capabilities, including programmable actuation, sensing, and self-transformation, from a simple material.”

The bone is repaired with 3D Printing.

Posted on Updated on

Bone repair is critical. Due to age and other factors, bones suffer from bone defects and disorders.
According to the Journal of Materials Chemistry, “The aim of this study is to solve these problems by applying a modified 3D-printing method to prepare highly uniform CS scaffolds with controllable pore structure and improved mechanical strength. The in vivo osteogenesis of the prepared 3D-printed CS scaffolds was further investigated by implanting them in the femur defects of rats. The results show that the CS scaffolds prepared by the modified 3D-printing method have uniform scaffold morphology. The pore size and pore structure of CS scaffolds can be efficiently adjusted. The comprehensive strength of 3D-printed CS scaffolds is around 120 times that of conventional”.

The 3D printing of highly uniform CaSiO3 ceramic scaffolds is a promising technique for preparing bone tissue engineering scaffolds. This technique uses a computer-aided design (CAD) model to create a 3D-printed platform filled with cells and growth factors to promote bone regeneration.

To prepare the CaSiO3 ceramic scaffolds, a powder mixture of calcium oxide and silica was used. The mixture is then ground to prepare a homogeneous powder and mixed with a binder to form a paste; a 3d printer will create the scaffold.

The CaSiO3 ceramic scaffold promotes bone formation, is biocompatible, and bone tissue grows into the pores of the scaffold, resulting in new bone formation. The scaffold also degrades over time, allowing the gradual integration of the new bone tissue.

In conclusion, the 3D printing of highly uniform CaSiO3 ceramic scaffolds technique for bone tissue engineering. The scaffold has a highly consistent porous structure and promotes osteogenesis. This technique can potentially revolutionize bone tissue engineering and may lead to new treatments for bone-related injuries and diseases.
