3D-printing an Aventador in the garage

Posted on Updated on

 

According to CTV News,” the Colorado physicist Physicist Sterling Backus who’s constructing this lookalike, Lamborghini, using a 3D printer. 3D-printing an Aventador in the garage.”
According to MOTOR, “My son said he loved the Aventador and wondered if it was possible to build one. He did not need to twist my arm too much!”

3D printed Tiny robots

Posted on Updated on

Tiny robots activated by magnetic fields may be used in future biomedical procedures.
According to Professor Eric Diller (MIE), researchers at the U of T,” they create magnetized microrobots. The size of the head of a pin that can travel through fluid-filled vessels and organs within the human body. Previously, we would prepare one shape and manually design it, spend weeks planning it, before we could fabricate it. And that’s just one shape. Then when we build it, we would inevitably discover specific quirks — for example, we might have to tweak it to be a little bigger or thinner to make it work. If we were taking samples in the urinary tract or within fluid cavities of the brain — we envision that an optimized technique would be instrumental in scaling down surgical robotic tools”.
According to Tianqi Xu, he is MIE MASc candidate, “These robots are quite difficult and labor-intensive to fabricate because the process requires precision. Also because of the need for manual assembly, it’s more difficult to make these robots smaller, which is a major goal of our research”.

The 3D print shell of a 4-bedroom house in 24 hours using

The large-scale 3D concrete printer.

According to Dr. Paul Tinari,” a demonstration of the 3D printer in Burnaby on Thursday. The beauty about this is that it can build a house of any size.

Tinari said his technology could build livable homes today, but one needs to subject it to testing and building code legislation needs to change.
he hopes to soon build homes on a First Nation reserve on Vancouver Island, where provincial and federal building codes don’t apply. He also says his invention would be perfect for rebuilding communities hit by natural disasters, including parts of California ravaged by wildfires”.

Virtual hub in Victoria,s Objective 3D to announce the new Additive Manufacturing Hub excel by $2 million

Posted on Updated on

According to Ben Carroll, Minister for Industry and Employment,“3D printing is a game changer for manufacturing – which is why we’re backing the technology so more local companies can reap the benefits. This new hub will help local manufacturers innovate, become more productive and excel in future industries. Victoria’s manufacturing industry contributes $27.7 billion to the Victorian economy, with over 13,000 businesses employing more than 283,000 people. It also exported $18.16 billion of manufactured goods in 2016-17″.

Minister for Industry and Employment Ben Carroll today joined Member for Carrum Sonya Kilkenny at Objective 3D to announce the new Additive Manufacturing Hub – supported by $2 million from the Andrews Labor Government.

3D bio-printed scaffolds to help regenerate damaged peripheral nervous systems

Posted on Updated on

According to The Universities spokesperson Liqun Ning and Daniel Chena, they are the postdoctoral fellow in the Tissue Engineering Research Group at the University of Saskatchewan,” They spent the last few years investigating how 3D bio-printing can be used to help with nerve cell regeneration. His solution involves combining engineering and biomedicine in order to create scaffolds that can guide the growth of nerve cells across large damaged areas.

The background is actually mechanical engineering, but tissue engineering is the combination of engineering and biomedicine together. The very beginning of their PhD study, they use their knowledge, background and provide techniques to help people in the biomedical area. The peripheral nervous system, which controls the body beyond the brain and the spinal cord, can be damaged by poor diet, toxins, and trauma. It can also be damaged by diseases such as diabetes, which affects about 422 million people worldwide, and 3.4 million people in Canada”.

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.:)
