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.”
According to researchers at ETH Zurich,” have fabricated an 80 m2 lightweight concrete slab at the DFAB House, making it the world’s first full-scale architectural project to use 3D sand printing for its formwork”.
3D Printing, Customization, and the Future of Fashion will be the next revolution in the fashion industry:)
According to ReasonTV, “We are in an extremely individualistic age of fashion,” explains Michelle Finamore, curator of Fashion Arts at Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts and co-curator of the current exhibit”.
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”.
According to Stratasys Eckhart,” is a leader in Industry 4.0 innovation, providing advanced solutions that streamline the harsh manufacturing environment. Eckhart provides solutions to some of the largest manufacturers in the world, designing tools, equipment, and automation that improve the life of the people tasked with running the line”.
According to Stratasys, “A look at a range of 3D printed parts printed on the Stratasys J750 rapid prototyping 3D printing solution, the world’s only full color and a multi-material 3D printer. Featuring Digital ABS Plus, a tough, engineering grade material, Agilus 30, an enhanced rubber-like material with excellent surface finish and elongation at break, and VeroFlex, a new eyewear solution material combining the optimal rigidity and durability for eyewear drop testing and full-color design validation”.
According to Stratasys, “ULA optimizes their rockets by replacing metal components with lightweight thermoplastic parts manufactured additively. From prototypes and mock-ups to rocket launches ULA’s use of 3D printing has grown exponentially”.
Graduate students learned how to 3-D print ice cream in an additive manufacturing course at MIT.
According to John Hart, the Mitsui Career Development Associate Professor in Contemporary Technology and Mechanical Engineering at MIT,” says early education on 3-D printing is the key to helping the technology expand as an industry. I very much enjoyed creating and teaching the course and I’m proud of what the students did, and what it means about the future potential of additive manufacturing. The students’ final projects have included printers that they built specially to print molten glass and even soft-serve ice cream”.
