3D printed ´Diamond ring´

A promising 3D-printing method gets flexible

3D printing build anything with layer by layer. We always use the raw material to make 3D ring objects. Sometimes objects are rough because of the material we use.
3D printing is allowing new material for achieving the desired design.3D printed ‘diamond ring´ is one of the examples to become creative.

Liquid resin can help us to make a 3D-printed object in one smooth piece.

According to Maxim Shusteff at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California and his colleagues identified three suitable molecular building blocks and combined them into resins.
As UC Berkeley grad student and co-lead author Brett Kelly, said on the volumetric project at LLNL, and his UC Berkeley professor Hayden Taylor decided an alternative method was necessary to expand the geometric freedom and print more arbitrary complex objects.

Prevent defects in metal 3D-printed parts

Prevent defects in metal 3D-printed parts. Using this technology could have been benefited to build high rise buildings in San Francisco California.

According to Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) researchers, “High-speed images of a common laser-based metal 3D printing process, coupled with newly updated computer models, have revealed the mechanisms behind material redistribution, a phenomenon that leads to defects in printed metal parts”.
