3D Printing: Environmentally Friendly

A 3D printed li-ion battery

Posted on Updated on

I am concerned about writing anything related to Lithium. So I did research about it. I found out some favorable research about Lithium.
Please do the judgment for our reader’s.
According to Battery University, “Because of the inherent instability of lithium metal, research shifted to a non-metallic lithium battery using lithium ions. Although slightly lower in energy density, the lithium-ion system is safe, providing certain precautions are met when charging and discharging. Today, lithium-ion is one of the most successful and safe battery chemistries available. Two billion cells are produced every year”.

At the same time, according to Physics researchers at Virginia Commonwealth University,” they also found that the electrolytes in lithium-ion batteries (also known as Li-ion batteries) could be replaced with halogen-free electrolytes that are both nontoxic and environmentally friendly”.

According to Engadget,” A 3D printed li-ion battery is one of the challenges in creating smaller and smaller devices these days, such as wearables and phones, is that the batteries can take up a lot of room. Cases are often designed around standard battery sizes, and it often creates wasted space. Now, new research published in ACS Applied Energy Materials shows that it’s possible to 3D-print lithium-ion batteries into whatever shape you need”.

Dr. 3D Printer smooth and shiny product


In the Dr. 3D Printer series we use new ideas and innovations. How to make 3d printing easy.

When we make 3d printed products, they are not so smooth and shiny. We found how can we make our products more look like they came out from factory, or we made it at home.

Today we are learning about how to make our products shiny and smooth.

In this video Maker’s Muse is our Dr. and he is going to give us advise about making shiny smooth product. 🙂
