Posted on Updated on

According to C. Anandharamakrishnan, Director of IIFPT and corresponding author of the paper published in the Food and Bioprocess Technology., “The printer is approximately the size of a mixie, weighing below 8 kg and can be carried around. It was also indigenously developed and completely fabricated in India. This brings down the cost to less than Rs.75,000, while most printers in the market are expensive and cannot be conveniently used for multi-material food printing applications.”

Air Force lab and 3D printing

Posted on Updated on

According to Hilmar Koerner, Ph.D., research team lead for polymer matrix composite materials and processes at the AFRL Materials and Manufacturing Directorate, “Additive manufacturing is important to the future of aerospace for a variety of reasons. Benefits include complexity enabled capability; low-volume, low-cost manufacturing; part reduction; improved form-fit function; tool-less part manufacturing; and lightweighting of interior hardware, such as air ducts, seat framework and wall panels.”

According to Jeffery Baur, Ph.D., leader of the AFRL Composite Performance Research Team, “Printing composites can produce parts with complex shapes and eliminates the need for the expensive pressure cooker and long heating cycles. The possibility to produce parts in the field or at a depot without a long logistics tail is a win-win scenario.”

Recycled Cellulose Polypropylene Composite Feedstocks for Material Extrusion Additive Manufacturing. According to ACS publications,” Many types of consumer-grade packaging can be used in material extrusion additive manufacturing processes, providing a high-value output for waste plastics. However, many of these plastics have reduced mechanical properties and increased warpage/shrinkage compared to those commonly used in three-dimensional (3D) printing. Recycled polypropylene/waste paper, cardboard, and wood flour composites were made using a solid-state shear pulverization process.”

Achieve true 3D printing with non planar slicing

Posted on Updated on

According to Teaching Tech,” This is the most interesting thing I’ve done with my 3D printer in some time. Instead of printing in a series of 2D planes stacked up to form a 3D shape (2.5D), this non planar technique creates geometry with true 3D tool paths that can eliminate the steps often seen on shallow surfaces. Based on the amazing Masters Thesis of Daniel Ahlers and the University of Hamburg, this development can be tried yourself if you are willing to put in some time to setting it up.”

Hi everyone, some updates:
– A bunch of people pointed out that Windows 10 now has an embedded Linux environment. I installed this and went through the process again. I had a couple of errors and had to manually install missing cpan libraries via the command line. Slic3r did successfully compiled, but only runs via command line rather than with a graphical user interface as seen in this video. I’m sure there’s a way to add even more modules to get the GUI working, but it’s beyond my knowledge.
– Some people also mentioned setting up a dual boot configuration. This is another great suggestion but I need to have my Windows PC on at all times to keep my video production going, so not suitable for me.
– There have been some viewers pointing me towards ‘air brush’ nozzles. I’ve ordered a set, they look ideal for this technique.

Windows subsystem for Linux 2.0 is much better then 1.0. Should be in the windows 10 1909 release.

I have this working with WSL under Windows 10 and have used VcXsrv as the Xserver. It also allows pretty easy access between filesystems for loading STLs and writing back the gcode.

@grandaspanna Yes. Most people with 3D printers know about gcode and STLs. They know how to calibrate their printers and make it print. But the software is somewhat mysterious, as are the effects one little change to a parameter in the slicer.
But what I think would help the most is a simple, already compiled executable program that would run and turn a traditional printer into a “true” 3D printer, using the methods discussed in this video.
I never even thought that my printer was a “2-1/2 D” printer until I watched this video. But now it makes so much more sense to do it this way. In fact, it makes sense to go one step further and make printers with five axes, so that the print nozzle is always perpendicular to the extrusion. When we get to that point, then we can start work on finer nozzles and plastic that extrudes with more granularity.
I do believe that the “big boys” who are printing airplane parts on demand have the right idea but that hasn’t filtered down to the hobbyists like me yet.

This is awesome. No idea why I’m watching this as I don’t have a 3D printer, but it’s awesome.

I had recently been thinking of this kind of technique. I had thought that this technique would be more easily implemented with a delta based 3D printer. So that the print head could be tilted.

you cant tilt the nozzle on a delta. the nozzle will always be parallel to the printbed

Tim Milgart

@Gerhard Wilkens Yes, but it would be logically more easily to do it on a delta based 3d printer. (As I see it, but i’m only a engineer, so everything can be done in my optic).

it is very much doable, but is highly dependent on the Delta Design, my current delta prototype will actually do this, once i get the new board in, and some Titan Extruder spares. Cause the hot end hangs below the effector plate, with the magnetic arms on my printer giving a good range of movement the code can be adjusted to tilt the head. But it depends if slic3r can be adjusted to generate G-Code like this

That’s cool, but too much difficult work on software side.
I think it could really take of if CURA would make experimantal mode with it.
Then people would just need to remove the fan shroud, on stock Ender 3 that’s actually easy,

This looks amazing! I will have to try it out very soon. Clean the Z screw and modify the CR10S hotend to have a part cooling fan and a decent head cooling fan…will see what I can do and if I manage it I will share it on Thingiverse.

I mentioned this on the other video, but the next logical steps for non-planar are hot ends that have steeper angles, taller height to width ratio. Basically, with a steeper angled nozzle, it could fit into tighter curves. This also needs an entirely different cooling system, though, but that shouldn’t be too difficult to develop.
Non-planar also nicely extends into 5axis printing, which should be the next step of developments for the future of FDM.

The 3D printers contribution to save the environment, with rebuilding ceramic corals reefs

Posted on Updated on

The 3D printer’s contribution to saving environment rebuilding ceramic corals reefs.
According to Ezri Tarazi, an industrial design professor at the Technion—Israel Institute of Technology, who is collaborating with other researchers from his university, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, and Bar-Ilan University on the project, “As a diver, I was seeing the early signs of this five years ago. I was thinking, how can we take a reef that’s totally collapsing—which means there are no branches of corals anymore because they collapse, and fish cannot hide—and how can we reignite life in it? Because I’m an industrial designer, the idea to print corals was the first thing coming to mind.”

Prellis Biologics has raised $8.7M

Posted on Updated on

According to Dr. Alex Morgan, Principal at Khosla Ventures and Dr. Melanie Matheu, Prellis Biologics’ co-founder and CEO, “Regenerative medicine has made enormous leaps in recent decades. However, to create complete organs, we need to build higher-order structures like the vascular system. Prellis’ optical technology provides the scaffolding necessary to engineer these larger masses of tissues. With our investment in Prellis, we’re supporting an initiative that will ultimately produce a functioning lobe of the lung, or even a kidney, to be used in addressing an enormous unmet global need.

The human tissue engineering is the ability to build complex tissues with working vascular systems. The future of regenerative medicine revolves around harnessing the power of our own cells as therapeutics and building the tissues to keep them alive. Khosla Ventures is the perfect investor to support our merging of deep tech and cutting-edge regenerative medicine. With this technology in hand, we can begin to ask questions about real 3D cell biology that have never been asked before.”
