3D Printer ( Prusa i3 MK2 )


 

According to Mr. Josef Prusa, “The Prusa i3 MK2  printer can automatically find the calibration points and because it knows its geometry (how skewed the axes are) it can correct it live during the print as it does with automatic mesh bed leveling”. 🙂

The Prusa i3 MK2 is open source and the firmware is available.

Microfluids and 3D Printing


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.

Vader Systems create 3-D Printer For Printing with Liquid Metal

3-D printing liquid metal with Vader Systems



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.
