Microfluids and 3D Printing


NC State’s enthusiasts are doing lot of work for Microfluids. They found the liquid metal can be transform into 3d printed product.

This is fast and simple technique for making human body parts or metal objects.

According to Sidra Waheed, Joan M. Cabot, Niall P. Macdonald, Trevor Lewis,
3D printing has the potential to significantly change the field of microfluidics. The ability to fabricate a complete microfluidic device in a single step from a computer model has obvious attractions.

Student Straigtens His Own Teeth by 3D Printing His Braces


Amos Dudley, an intern at NJIT used 3D Printer to make his clear braces.  Usually getting work done to straighten your teeth can be quite expensive.  Amos managed to straighten his teeth in $60.

Due to his interesting story, Formlabs, a Massachusetts based company that manufactures 3D  printers offered him a job.  Formlabs was founded in 2011 by Maxim Lobovsky, Natan Linder, and David Cranor of MIT.

According to Lobovsky, founder of Formlabs, “Amos’s work pushes the limits of 3D printing applications.  That kind of inventiveness is exactly what our customers hope to achieve with our products.”

3D printed sensors can help us find parking spot


Every time  whenever we go to popular city, our first question is where we are going to park the car. It  is hassle to find parking spot in big cities even though it is paid parking.

Sometimes all the parking lots are full, sign says no parking . So keep mood happy  before going to crowded place why don’t we take 3d printed sensor with us and have a good fun time!!!!

Dutch startup Parkeagle  is making parking easier for drivers. They are using  smart sensors and 3D printing to help parking spots SLS to FDM 3D printing, which helped to cut down on both production costs and overall production time.

They connect wireless USB device  for 3D printed  platform. Formide, and Katana   both are apps for free slicing. PARKEAGLE, was able to help the startup create physical models of its designs to show to potential investors while further developing and optimizing the sensor enclosure design.

PARKEAGLE  participated in competition, which took place in Amsterdam this past September. 🙂
