3D printed resistive soft sensors

Posted on Updated on

According to related publications from Shih B., Christianson C., Gillespie K., Lee S., Mayeda J., Huo Z., Tolley M. T. (2019), “Design considerations for 3D printed, soft, multi-material resistive sensors for soft robotics. Frontiers in Robotics and AISubmersible robots are finding ever-increasing uses in search and rescue, environmental monitoring, and defense applications. Artificial muscles made out of dielectric elastomer actuators (DEAs) provide an attractive choice for driving submersible robotics based on their high energy density, lightweight, and efficiency. One challenge for most DEAs is that that they require conductive electrodes that are made out of materials that are challenging to the pattern, opaque, and/or add stiffness to the devices.”

3D Printing News Alert(Higher temperature responsive 4D printing)

Posted on Updated on

According to Chen X, Liu X, Ouyang M and Dr Connor Myant, a lecturer at the Dyson School of Design Engineering and Imperial College London (ICL),”explored 4D printing and its potential to herald new opportunities for industries and consumers.,”a novel electrochemical 3D printer with 2 deposition nozzles was presented which is capable of printing temperature responsive multi-metal (copper and nickel) 4D structures. An electrospun nanofibre nib was used to provide sufficient back pressure to the hydraulic head exerted by the electrolyte, replacing the porous sponge material used in prior works”.

3D printed active materials for robots

Posted on Updated on

3D printed active materials for robots, inspiration from invertebrates.

According to Dr. Ed Habtour, ARL researcher who specializes in nonlinear structural dynamics and lead author Ghazaleh Haghiashtiani, “Current military robots have two major limitations that restrict them from mimicking the locomotion of biological organisms. Unlike current 3-D printed DEAs, the new fabrication method does not require post-processing steps, such as assembly, drying or annealing. With the new 3-D printing method, the Solider can take advantage of the unique actuation properties of soft DEAs at the fundamental materials level with microscale resolution and complexity, with minimal prior expertise.”

The future of 3D printing and manufacturing

Posted on Updated on

BigRep 3D Printer Reviews.
We always skeptical about the future of 3D printing and manufacturing. Nowadays technology is with the combination of Artificial Intelligence, Nano, Virtual Reality and 3D Printers.

3D printers are speeding up the manufacturing process. We are using 3D, 4D, and 5D printing. We already know parts can be printed, retrieved and installed by a robot.

How to 3D printed Copy Any Object

Posted on Updated on

How to 3D print copy any object. According to Switch & Lever,” Copying physical items is not as easy as copying a piece of paper, you can’t exactly stick it into a copy machine. However, surprisingly technology for how to copy physical objects have come a long way in recent years, and have also become available for those without deep pockets. In this video we’re copying a couple of different objects, using different methods, with different rates of success.”:)

3D Printing with PETG

Posted on Updated on

According to the comments,”PETG for strength and durability,  polyethylene terephthalate (think plastic bottles) and the G means it’s been glycol modified for extra durability. PLA for speed and a little extra quality. It’s good stuff. PEI is an ideal print surface for PETG it adheres well but doesn’t fuse like it does to glass. The advantage of PETG is minimal warping, so you don’t need a heated chamber and virtually no smell with PETG”.:)

3D printed fashion footwear

Posted on Updated on

3D printed fashion footwear will be a good opportunity for the people who have flat feet, outgrow bone and wide feet. It is hard for them to use fashion shoes for the work or party or any sports. In my house, it is common to have flat feet and they can not use fashionable footwear. It is always hard, we have to special order for the same kind all the time.

According to Nicholas Unis, a junior finance and accounting major in the Smeal College of Business, ” he was telling his idea to the “Shark Tank.” I just had a hard plastic shoe and a rough wooden printer. They liked the idea and gave me some very good input.”
Unis also said “I designed the printer to be optimized to print shoes if you print this material with any normal 3D printer, it’s going to jam, “UnisBrands allows me to have the best of both worlds, bringing business, design, and fashion together.”:)

Medical Images to 3D Print Human Organ Models

Posted on Updated on

 

A team of researchers led by the University of Minnesota has 3D printed lifelike artificial organ models that mimic the exact anatomical structure, mechanical properties, and look and feel of real organs. In this study, the research team took MRI scans and tissue samples from three patients’.

According to lead researcher Michael McAlpine, an associate professor of mechanical engineering in the University of Minnesota’s College of Science and Engineering, “We are developing next-generation organ models for pre-operative practice. The organ models we are 3D printing are almost a perfect replica in terms of the look and feel of an individual’s organ, using our custom-built 3D printers,” and 2017 recipient of the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE).

“We think these organ models could be ‘game-changers’ for helping surgeons better plan and practice for surgery. We hope this will save lives by reducing medical errors during surgery.”

3D printed organ models are made using hard plastics or rubbers.

Researchers tested the tissue and developed customized silicone-based inks that can be “tuned” to precisely match the mechanical properties of each patient’s prostate tissue.

“The sensors could give surgeons real-time feedback on how much force they can use during surgery without damaging the tissue,” said Kaiyan Qiu, a University of Minnesota mechanical engineering postdoctoral researcher and lead author of the paper. “This could change how surgeons think about personalized medicine and pre-operative practice.”

The researchers then attached soft, 3D printed sensors to the organ models and observed the reaction of the model prostates during compression tests and the application of various surgical tools.:)
