Digital scanning has been a particularly useful tool for many historic sites over years, as excavating them can often cause more damage than good, leaving a destroyed piece of history that no one can enjoy. The method of preservin [...]

Stanford University has found a way to use 3D scanning and printing to study rocks that we cannot possibly hold in our hands. Their research has been published in the journal, Science. It’s a relatively simple concept in truth, bu [...]

Researchers at the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory have produced a process that could finally master Focused Electron Beam Induced Deposition and drive nanoscale 3D printing forward. Their findings were publis [...]

Sadly, this isn't about Daft Punk and their mastery in electronic music, though I have to admit, actual robot rocks embedded with sensors are pretty innovative and interesting too. Interesting enough, in fact, to be awarded a 5 ye [...]

The National Science Foundation has backed researchers at the University of Pittsburgh with more than $500,000, which it will use to build a unique transmission electron microscope to monitor the formation of microstructures in 3D [...]

That's what a New Jersey college student did, and its making that usual hefty price tag feel all the more painful... One quick word of warning though, don't try this at home! To give a little context on what kind of orthodontic ca [...]

The new facility will focus on DLP 3D printing technologies and enhance Malaysia’s role as a driver behind 3D Printing in Asia. Materialise NV are a leading provider of Additive Manufacturing software and sophisticated 3D printing [...]

A Rapid Increase in Medical 3D Printing The relationship between 3D printing and the healthcare sector has been blossoming in recent years. A report has been published recently discussing market research into how 3D printing in th [...]

From biohybrid stingrays, to bio-hybrid slugs. Scientists seem to be developing quite the collection of robotic sea creatures! Phd student Victoria Webster of Case Western Reserve University, is currently undertaking a research pr [...]

A Joint Development Agreement (JDA) has begun between Swansea University Medical School and American Process Inc. (API) in Atlanta, with the intention of developing 3D printed tissue cartilage. The materials they are developing th [...]
