According to the Formlabs, “stereolithography (SLA) print process, and see how Formlabs prints compare to parts made from an extrusion-based fused deposition modeling (FDM) 3D printer:

Form 1+ is a stereolithography 3D printer. Today, we’re going to look at how it works and put it to the test against parts from an extrusion-based machine.

Let’s start by taking a closer look at the printer. When we open up the light blocking cover, we can see a build platform inside. This metal plate is where the parts are made.

Underneath the build platform is a liquid resin tank. This clear window gives the ultraviolet laser a path to cure the resin.

To start a print, we’ll upload a file, and fill up the resin tank to the indicator line. You can see the laser passing back and forth inside, hardening the liquid plastic.

Now, We’ll take our print out and wash it in rubbing alcohol to get the excess resin off. The flower comes with supports on it, and we’ll snip them off to finish the piece.

Stereolithography is known for producing extreme detail, with layers down to four times finer than a human hair.

The Form 1+ lets us take advantage of a library of materials, so we made some other parts to show what these resins can do.

A Castable Resin gives jewelers and engineers an inexpensive way to produce metal parts. This Flexible Resin is great for simulating different textures and as we can see, this Tough Resin and can really take a hit”.

3D Printing learning, modifying

Posted on Updated on

According to Jonathan Torta, a self-professed and his sister, Stephanie Torta, a designer, and the author, “technical jack-of-all-trades,” remembered the very first MakerBot kit he acquired and assembled. It was the little wooden ‘Cupcake’ that was very basic. It rattled all over the place, but it could print things. Mesmerized, he’s been “building and modifying 3D printers ever since. I thought that was pretty cool.”

3D Printing News Alert(3D printed flexible mesh for ankle and knee braces)

Posted on Updated on

3D printed flexible mesh for ankle and knee braces. According to Sebastian Pattinson, who conducted the research as a postdoc at MIT and associate professor of mechanical engineering A. John Hart, “This work is new in that it focuses on the mechanical properties and geometries required to support soft tissues.3-D-printed clothing and devices tend to be very bulky. We were trying to think of how we can make 3-D-printed constructs more flexible and comfortable, like textiles and fabrics. The beauty of this technique lies in its simplicity and versatility. Mesh can be made on a basic desktop 3-D printer, and the mechanics can be tailored to precisely match those of soft tissue.”

Using multi-material will be awesome for everybody. We can have our beautiful creation with the help of 3D printed fabric:)

According to N2K, “Advancements in 3D printing have enabled universities, designers and fashion houses to work collaboratively towards wearable printed clothing. 3D Printing Tech Revolutionize The Fashion World”.

3D Printing aids for ‘Arthritis’ Patients

Posted on Updated on

Arthritis is not only based on age anybody can have ‘Arthritis’ at any age.
In my opinion, research can change the bases of age.
I have seen so many young age people have ‘Arthritis’.
Nobody wants to talk about and they hide because. Arthritis is commonly used for old age diseases. According to the Department of Biomedical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering, Michigan Technological University, Houghton, “By 2040, more than a quarter of the U.S. population will have diagnosed arthritic conditions. Adults with arthritis and other rheumatic conditions earn less than average yet have medical care expenditures that are over 12% of average household income. Adaptive aids can help arthritis patients continue to maintain independence and quality of life; however, their high costs limit accessibility for older people and the poor. One method used for consumer price reduction is distributed manufacturing with 3-D printers. In order to assess if such a method would be financially beneficial, this study evaluates the techno-economic viability of distributed manufacturing of adaptive aids for arthritis patients”.
