How can 3D printing help ecologists understand climate change? “The real uncertain part is species diversity,” says Adam Wolf, a postdoctoral fellow at Princeton University who studies how different kinds of plants respond to changes in water availability
Access to rare fossils is limited, potentially putting a go-slow on their study, while sharing them around increases the risk of damaging them. Researchers at Berlin’s Charité Campus Mitte have combined data from computed tomography (CT) scans with 3D printing technology to make it possible to print any number of accurate 3D reproductions of fossilized bones, without any adverse effect on the originals.
3D printers have already migrated from factories to the home and are now set to journey into space, where the cost of delivering replacement tools, components and structures can cost in the millions. The AMAZE (Additive Manufacturing Aiming Towards Zero Waste & Efficient Production of High-Tech Metal Products) from the ESA and the European Commission aims to deliver the first 3D metal printer to the International Space Station (ISS) to allow astronauts to print custom objects on demand… Continue Reading AMAZE project aims to put first 3D metal printer on the ISS Section: Space Tags: 3D Printers , 3D Printing , ESA , International Space Station Related Articles: NASA 3D-prints and fires rocket engine component EADS Airbike made of steel-strength nylon SWYP concept aims at reinventing the printer Desktop device prints six colours on cylindrical objects “Houston, we don’t have a problem” – Zero-gravity 3D printing heads for space 3D-printed rocket parts stand up to the heat in NASA hot-fire tests
By: Heather Tackett It is safe to say that most industries these days are searching for the quickest and most cost-efficient ways to develop their business. The medical industry is no stranger to this concept and thanks to advancements in 3D printing, ideas that once seemed futuristic and far off, are now becoming more and
Entrepreneurs run our economy now, McGee observes. They have liquidity and they’re ready to take risks. The economy remains a concern for small business owners like me.
