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.
Hello! I’m just an indie game developer making some videos about game development. I also build custom rigs for gaming. At the moment I’m just showing off Mixamo Fuse character creation software. I added some indie game music and a couple of clips of some indie game development with Unity and AGFPro (world construction) software […]
3D Printing is my Passion. I always like to see if somebody has any creative imagination.
I always try to find out more about 3D printing. This post i liked it so i would like to share with our followers.
A few months ago I put up a post on the subject of 3D printing couple of photos, that post can be found HERE. Well I’ve now finished painting it and thought I’d put up another couple of pictures a long with a picture of the original computer model that that was used to create […]
A DLP 3D printer works by shining light into a vat of photosensitive polymer using a Digital Light Processing projector, curing a thin layer of the goo until a solid part has been built up. Generally, the resolution of the print is determined by the resolution of the projector, and by the composition of the polymer itself. […]
Defense Distributed is an open source organization that develops designs for weapons that can be downloaded from internet and 3D printed. Defense Distributed developed a fully functional gun called the Liberator. On May 5, 2013, Defense Distributed made the 3D printable files of the Liberator publicly available. Few days later, the United States Department of State cited a violation of the International Traffic in Arms Regulations and asked Defense Distributed to remove the files from the internet. On May 6, 2015, Defense Distributed sued the Department of State for violating its constitutional rights. The case is currently on appeal.
The ability to 3D print weapons raises important practical as well as moral challenges. On one hand, the Second Amendment of the Constitution states that “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” On the other hand the ability to download and 3D print weapons raises the issue of weapons easily falling in the wrong hands. The final outcome of the case remains to be seen.
Disabled Wisconsin Duck walks with 3D Printed Feet
A duck named Phillip lost his feet to frostbite in Wisconsin. He was found by a teacher Vicki Rabe-Harrison who first considered euthanizing him considering his condition. Instead, she contacted Jason Jischke, a middle school teacher who had a 3D printer in his class. Jason asked her not to put Phillip down. Jason worked with his students to develop feet for Phillip. After multiple attempts, finally they managed to 3D print feet that fit Phillip. Phillip struggled initially with the prosthetic feet but figured out fast how to use them. He got a second life thanks to his 3D printed feet. Phillip now lives in Wisconsin’s Autumn Farm Sanctuary, near Lake Michigan with other duck friends.
