Purdue researchers test 3D concrete printing system as part of NSF-funded project
Transitioning to clean wind energy could become more cost-efficient as Purdue University researchers test a new technology created by an international startup to anchor offshore wind turbines.
HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D Printing Technology for End of Arm Tooling
When HP set out to develop this technology, the aim was to push beyond prototyping and enable repeatable, higher volume additive manufacturing. We can do this by combining a powder bed fusion approach with HP's Thermal Inkjet (TIJ) technology.
Metal 3DPrinting over CNC for custom EOAT
This small component was stopping them from realizing the full potential of their manufacturing process as they could only run the system when there was someone there to restart the system if a stoppage occurred due to slippage.
Gantry Systems for High Performance 3D Printing Applications
3D Printing motion systems are built from standard 3D Print optimized gantry platforms and pre-configured for use with Nordson Ultimus V (or customized to extruder). The direct hardware integration has been considered.
Ridgeback Takes 3D Printing to the Next Level
How can you print something larger than the printer itself? That's the problem researchers Xu Zhang, Mingyang Li, Quang-Cuong Pham, and others set out to solve at the Singapore Centre for 3D Printing...
Rutgers Researchers Create a 3D-Printed Smart Gel That Walks Underwater, Moves Objects
The watery creation could lead to soft robots that mimic sea animals like the octopus, which can walk underwater and bump into things without damaging them.
VTT has 3D printed a smart metal part: a step towards artificial intelligence
VTT's proof of concept demo showed that a range of sensors or smart identifications can be added to 3D printed metal parts during manufacture, in order to track the performance and condition of machines or devices, or verify the authenticity of the parts.
ETH zurich builds DFAB HOUSE using robots and 3D printers
DesignBoom.com: Built using a two-meter high construction robot, the machine works by moving autonomously on caterpillar tracks.
CMU's interactive tool helps novices and experts make custom robots
Phys.org: A new interactive design tool developed by CMU's Robotics Institute enables both novices and experts to build customized legged or wheeled robots using 3D-printed components and off-the-shelf actuators.
MIT Builds Invisible Fish Grabbing Robot
Matthew Humphries for PCMag: Catching a fish can be tough, even if you are just trying to net a goldfish in a small tank. That's because the fish spots the danger and makes a swim for it. But what if you didn't need a net because you're controlling an invisible grabbing robot? That's what Xuanhe Zhao, a professor of mechanical engineering at MIT succeeded in creating, but its applications go way beyond catching and releasing fish unharmed. The robot is constructed of a transparent hydrogel, which is strong and durable but mostly made of water. As the video below explains, each arm of the robot is constructed from 3D-printed hollow cubes of hydrogel, which are then linked together. By injecting water using a syringe it's possible to make the arms curl and uncurl quickly in a grabbing motion. Cont'd...
