3D printing to create insulin.

Posted on Updated on

People with type 1 diabetes needed to be extra careful with eating and exercising, including other activities. 3D printing is creating insulin with smart biomaterials for type 1 diabetes.

According to Rice University bioengineers Omid Veiseh and Jordan Miller, “We must get implanted cells in close proximity to the bloodstream so beta cells can sense and respond quickly to changes in blood glucose.
We’re using a combination of pre-vascularization through advanced 3D bioprinting and host-mediated vascular remodeling to give each implant several shots at host integration.¨

Stellar Nursery.

According to researchers at UC Santa Cruz, ¨They created the models using data from simulations of star-forming clouds and a 3D printing process in which the fine-scale densities and gradients of the clouds are embedded in a transparent resin. Traditional extrusion-based 3D printing can only produce solid objects with a continuous outer surface, and that’s problematic when trying to depict, gases, clouds, or other diffuse forms.¨

3D printed liquid Rocket.

3D printed small rocket with less expensive high performance using a copper alloy. It has unique liquid oxygen regenerative cooling.

As mentioned in Tct magazineś article, Max Haot, Founder & CEO of Launcher said, ¨VELO3D really delivered on our turbopump, including its 3D printed rotating impeller, all of which functioned perfectly the very first time at 30,000 rpm, using the first prototype. Rocket engine turbopump parts typically require casting, forging, and welding. Tooling required for these processes increases the cost of development and reduces flexibility between design iterations. The ability to 3D print our turbopump—including rotating Inconel shrouded impellers, thanks to VELO3D’s zero-degree technology—makes it possible now at a lower cost and increased innovation through iteration between each prototype.¨

It all starts with developing the highest-performance engine for small rockets.

3D printed eco-friendly Pollen.

Posted on Updated on

Pollen can be used for tissue engineering. It is an ecofriendly material to make wound dressing patches or facial masks etc. The pollen microgel material can be useful where hard to place a bandage.

As mentioned by Scientists at NTU Singapore, ¨Bioprinting can be challenging because the material of the inks used is typically too soft, which means the structure of the envisioned product may collapse during printing. Through tuning the mechanical properties of sunflower pollen, we developed a pollen-based hybrid ink that can be used to print structures with good structural integrity.¨

Is 3D Printing Instigating a Design Revolution?

     

The world has evolved rapidly over the past few years. Efficient and new technologies have replaced the traditional working methods. 3D printing is at the cutting edge of these emerging technologies. Whether it be construction, design, engineering or medicine 3D printing has been proving a valuable tool across a plethora of disparate industries. Designing models for new homes or machines has never been so more accessible. 3D printing has radically altered the way designing is done. Allowing home workers to create a mini factory, here is how this technique has brought innovation and ease for design teams:

Reducing Design to Product Time:

We want work to be done faster these days, and 3D printing is the technology that fits best to this  

task. 3D printing can markedly reduce the design to production time and bring the efficiency required to stay in the market these days.

Manufacturers can quickly meet the demands of consumers by using CAD software. Unlike in the past, when all the designing was done on charts or papers, 3D printing lets you create the prototype concept products, such as composite decking. This means decision makers can quickly agree on designs, whilst saving money creating expensive moulds at the design concept stage.

Realizing Creative Concepts:

With traditional methods of designing, there was little room for designers to be creative and fully realize their proposal. 3D printing allows designers to manifest their creativity in the best way possible. Since it is a miniature version of a product or a model for a building that is to be made, clients can review it better, and changes can be made earlier, allowing for modifications before the product goes to production.

A Flexible Approach to Design:

     

Earlier, traditional designing methods were very costly and had very little room for changes and innovation in designing. However, a 3D printer lets you print anything you want, very easily. Designers can enjoy the freedom of bringing a novel approach to their designs and stand out among their contemporaries.

A Marketing Tactic:

Since 3D printing has taken today’s markets by storm with its unique benefits and design process, you can use it as a marketing tactic to attract your consumers. If your design team is using this technology, it will surely make you a reliable business venture as, the more updated your working methods are, the more people will trust you with their work.

Consistency:

The traditional working methods always have historically had the possibility of errors. One product can vary from the other. However, if 3D printing is integrated as part of your mode of manufacturing, you will see consistency in your product design and quality. This consistency in design and quality validates your presence in the market. If you want to bring character to your product and design, 3D must be your manufacturing mode.

Conclusion:

The benefits that 3D printing offers to the designing teams make it worthy of all the hype it is currently receiving. It has changed the way manufacturing is done. The lower production costs, ease of work, and the reduced time frame make 3D printing a potential technology which will replace older modes of manufacturing and design. The benefits and applications of 3D printing will undoubtedly be extended as industry continues to exploit this versatile technology.

3D Printingś profitability toward stocks.

33D Printingś profitability toward stocks is spreading their feet. Nowadays, companies are using 3D printing in dental, Medical, and building houses and designing food. Companies are in profit for using 3D printing because it is faster and saves money.

As mentioned in the Yahoo News article from Ian Bezek, he also is a contributor for U.S. News & World Report,
¨the pandemic disrupted supply chains, elevating the utility of on-site manufacturing options for key parts. As commercial adoption of 3D printing grows, the potential marketplace for stocks in this industry grows with it. ¨
