3D Printing Houses in China

————————————–

According to Yingchuang,” This is the company in China. They are building houses with 3D printers.  They use the environmentally friendly material for 3D printing houses such as recycled construction waste and industrial waste. Also, they use a large 3D printer which is 20 feet tall, 33 feet wide, and 132 feet long.  The house making process takes 24 hours. They make pieces one by one and assemble the house. This process is good for construction workers since they are not exposed to hazardous material.  This process is also environmentally friendly”.:)

Polymer based 3d printing from Carbon3D

Polymer-based 3d printing from Carbon3D


Carbon3D has announced a new approach to polymer-based 3D printing.  Their approach is based on CLIP (Continuous Liquid Interface Production) technology which continuously grows objects from resin instead of the conventional approach of the layer by layer printing.  Joseph DeSimone, co-founder of Carbon3D and Chancellor’s Eminent Professor of Chemistry, UNC, mentioned in his Ted talk in Canada, that this technique was inspired by the film Terminator 2, in which the T-1000 robot rises from a pool of metallic liquid.  According to DeSimone, objects created by conventional 3D printing are weak because they are made up of multiple layers obtained by 2D printing over and over again.  In contrast, CLIP based 3D printing is 25-100 times faster and generates much stronger objects.:)

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.”
