Two separate groups have published studies looking at how 3D printing can be used for cancer research. Belgian researchers have evaluated the use of 3D printing to create in vitro cancers cells that can properly represent the in v [...]

North Dakota State University's (NDSU) Jeremy Straub has published two recent papers discussing the cyber security threat to 3D printers. The two papers present the growing threat of cyber attacks to 3D printing and possible solut [...]

In this article looking at the future of 3D printing Eujin Pei and Giselle Loh, of Brunel University London, UK discuss how material properties and material behaviour can be controlled to support the integration of functions. Func [...]

Researchers from Texas A&M University and Texas Tech University have collaborated with 3D printing company Essentium Materials. The study shows how an FDM 3D printer coupled with an electric welding processes and carbon nanotu [...]

3D printer labs in schools, universities, MakerSpaces, Fab Labs and bureaus face an every day challenge of fulfilling the demand with multiple print jobs. Noticing a need for guidance in this area, researchers at the University of [...]

Why would you want to 3D print in water? New research into materials shows a novel technique with applications for 3D bioprinting. Materials scientist Shlomo Magdassi, who recently featured in our Future of 3D Printing guest serie [...]

Thailand's leading petrochemical company PTT Chemical Group (PTTCG) has announced a partnership with Singapore's Nanyang Technological University (NTU Singapore) to develop materials for 3D printing automotive parts. At the announ [...]

Researchers from Georgia Institute of Technology have used 3D printers to create tensegrity objects which can change shape. The 3D printed structures are capable of dramatic expansion and have the potential to be used in biomedici [...]

As a corn-based and biodegradable plastic, PLA, the material used in almost every desktop 3D printer, has been researched for its potential industrial applications. The material is particularly desirable in place of other plastics [...]

A 3D printed microfludic device developed by chemists at the University of Connecticut (UConn) has uncovered new information on the toxicity of nicotine-based liquids used in e-cigarettes. The device is capable of testing the dama [...]
