Fashion Designs using 3D Printers


According to ABC news,”Fashion designers are using 3D printers to make clothes, jewelry, shoes and other fashionable articles. Fashion designers have 3D printed articles for wearing alone or with other clothing.  For examples, designers are 3D printing fashionable shoes.  Victoria’s Secret has 3D printed costume inspired by snowflakes.  3D printing opens new frontiers for fashion”.:)

3D Printing in STEM curriculum


According to the Pitsco Education,” they provide science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) classroom solutions.  Afinia a 3D printer supplier has teamed with Pitsco to enable 3D printing in classrooms.  Pitsco provides 3-week courses that can be incorporated in any STEM curriculum.  They offer a vehicle engineering kit that allows students to 3D print vehicle parts. Another project comes with a free software called 123D Creat.  Students use the software to make objects such as medallions and game pieces.  Pitsco is further exploring ways to incorporate 3D printing into English and language arts, for example, by 3D printing characters and letting students write stories about the characters”.:)

3D Printing the Eta Carinae Star System

——————————————————

According to the NASA’s  Scientists,” Eta Carinae is a bright star system consisting of two stars surrounded by gas.  Scientists have been using computer simulations to study the star systems.  Computer simulations can be difficult to study on a 2D screen.  Therefore scientists used the 3d printer to create a 3D model of the star system. The 3D model makes it easier to study the star system.

3D Printing a Wrench in Space

——————————————–

NASA and Made In Space, Inc. have partnered to install a 3D printer in the International Space Station.   This is the first tool to be 3D printed in space that was designed on earth and emailed to the International Space Station.  The wrench took 4 hours to create on the space station.

According to NASA’s, chief strategy officer of Made in Space,”These first 3D prints will be brought down to Earth for examination where they’ll be compared to identical objects manufactured on the ground we’ll use them to characterize the effects of long-term microgravity on our 3D-printing process, so that we can model and predict the performance of objects that we manufacture in space in the future.”

Drugs printed by 3d printer


Scientists believe they can print a prescription drug using a 3D printer. According to Lee Cronin, he is the chemistry professor from the University of Glasgow,” The Professor mentioned in his Ted Talk that a 3D printer can assemble chemical compounds at a molecular level. Cronin said, what Apple did for music, I’d like to do for the discovery and distribution of prescription drugs. Cronin, also said users would go to an online drugstore with their digital prescription, buy a “blueprint” and the chemical “ink” they need, and then print the drug at home with software and a 3D molecular printer”.:)
