3D printing and origami

Posted on Updated on

3D printing and origami. According to Arnav Wagh, “he created ‘FLXO’ as a tool to explore soft-robotics these four actuators work is inspired by origami. They work as soft engines for a given mechanism. They are entirely 3D printed on a conventional desktop printer.”

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”.

3D Printing News Alert(3D Printers for larger parts production)

Posted on Updated on

According to Max Lobovsky, CEO and co-founder of Formlabs, “The printers also feature a new process the company calls Low Force Stereolithography (LFS), an advanced form of stereolithography that “delivers consistently flawless parts by adapting to your part’s geometry to deliver the perfect balance of detail and speed. We entered the industry seven years ago with the first powerful, affordable desktop SLA 3D printer, and since then have shipped more than 40,000 printers, and our customers have printed more than 40 million parts. Now users are leading the way in how to grow 3D printing from one machine to many, from prototyping tool to game changer. We’re excited to take another huge leap forward with LFS 3D printing.”

Minimize and manage plastic waste with 3D printing

Posted on Updated on

Minimize and manage plastic waste with 3D printing.
We can control and minimize plastic use because plastics provide health, safety for something useful. The plastic has convenience and benefits. If we use plastic carefully and recycle in a proper manner. It will be beneficial for so many aspects.

We can use 3D printing to save humanity. But, most important thing is that plastic waste does not belong in our environment.
What we should do to protect more harm.
Toronto-based biotechnology startup, Genecis is developing a synthetic biology platform to convert organic waste into premium chemicals and materials.
According to Marcelo Lu, President of BASF Canada, BASF seeks to work with innovative partners to strategically solve today’s global challenges,” We are proud to support a Canadian startup company which is providing a sustainable solution for organic waste. PHBVs, a high-quality biodegradable plastic that is used to make thermo-resistant packaging, compostable coffee pods, and 3D printing filaments”.
BASF accelerates its outreach towards technologies like artificial intelligence, internet of things and robotics. BASF is based, San Francisco, California, and Ludwigshafen, Germany.
According to Markus Solibieda, Managing Director at BASF Venture Capital,“ Alchemist has built a strong reputation for attracting the best in the digital ecosystem. We are thrilled to officially join Alchemist as a Limited Partner. Digitalization represents unprecedented opportunities to create value for our customers and develop new business models. By investing in a digitally-focused fund, we promote innovations at the intersection of chemicals and technologies like artificial intelligence, internet of things and robotics”,

The emergence of “4D printing”

The emergence of “4D printing”


Imagine things can replicate by itself an appropriate design. In my opinion, we need 4D printing to make water pipes for snowing region.:)
MIT researcher Skylar Tibbits works on self-assembly — the idea that instead of building something (a chair, a skyscraper).
He is an artist and computational architect. Skylar Tibbits is working on “smart” components that can assemble themselves.
3D printing has grown in sophistication since the late 1970s; TED Fellow Skylar Tibbits is shaping the next development, which he calls 4D printing, where the fourth dimension is time.
This emerging technology will allow us to print objects that then reshape themselves or self-assemble over time.
Think a printed cube that folds before your eyes, or a printed pipe able to sense the need to expand or contract.

Cloth Ironing is a long process. Sometimes doesn’t come out the way it should be. With the help of robots, ironing cloth will be done as soon as link clicks.:)

As with many tasks, robots may soon be ironing our clothes for us before we leave for work. Built by a team from the University Carlos III de Madrid’s robotics lab in Getafe, Spain, TEO is a highly articulated robot, that can climb stairs, open doors, and has recently added ironing to its skill set. […]
