3-D printer to make perfectly identical artificial rocks.
Anderson conducts research on how fluids move underground.
Anderson said, “We all had a laugh at the idea, but then we realized it wasn’t that bad of an idea then he told figure out how to do it, to replicate identical rock twins many times over, the researchers laser-scan a single rock, capturing every wrinkle and grain, then feed the data into the 3-D printer and watch as the machine spits out one perfect copy after another, sometimes reproducing rocks no bigger than a quinoa bud, others the size of a Rubik’s Cube.
“The biggest challenge was having to carve out an entirely new research area that we hadn’t dabbled in before”.:)
This is an amazing research regarding Thoughts. If we can use Artificial Intelligence in 3D printing.
We can increase our creativity and make things on demand. 🙂
New Brunswick Researchers To Study Thought-Controlled 3D Printing By Tyler Koslow Canadian researchers to study applications of artificial intelligence in manufacturing 3D printing materials under new innovation program. As technology continues to advance on all fronts, many experts believe we are on the cusp of the so-called fourth industrial revolution. 3D printing sits alongside other innovative […]
University of Buffalo student Zack Vader has created a machine that prints three-dimensional objects using liquid metal.
According to Professor Edward P. Furlani of Chemical and Biological Engineering and Electrical Engineering departments of University at Buffalo, Vader’s process uses a magnetic field to manipulate conductive fluids. The magnetic field is used to create pressure for squeezing the liquid out of an ejector nozzle.
According to Furlani “It’s a transformative technology. It’s very exciting interdisciplinary engineering. I think its application base will continue to broaden and expand for the foreseeable future.”
According to Chi Zhou, Assistant Professor at University of Buffalo, “I can see at this stage that it can complement traditional metal printing, but later, maybe 10 years later, it can dominate the metal printing market because it can print better quality, cheaper and faster.”
Vader’s 3-D printer can be used in future for making custom knee and hip replacements.
BUFFALO, N.Y. — A father and son team in the START-UP NY program have invented a liquid metal printing machine that could represent a significant transformation in manufacturing. A breakthrough idea five years ago by former University at Buffalo student Zack Vader, then 19, has created a machine that prints three-dimensional objects using liquid metal.
Future of Education Technology Conference FETC 2016 in Orlando
The 36th Annual National FETC 2016 is being held in Orlando, Florida from January 13-15, 2016. The FETC 2016 Expo Hall showcases latest products and technologies from over 500 manufacturers. These include 3D printing, robotics, software and various technologies related to education.
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”.:)
