Researchers at the School of Mechanical Engineering in Southeast University, China, have developed an algorithm for stronger, more efficient, 3D printed objects. The study focuses on the Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) method that [...]

Researchers from Duke University have created a digital database of 3D scans of deceased animals. The online database, Morphosource, has been developed with the aim of providing an accessible research tool. The creators, the Boyer [...]

A study published in Science Advances demonstrates a way of creating 3D printed shapes that assemble when exposed to heat. The study proposes a simplified process of "4D printing" with the potential for applications in high-value [...]

A paper from Californian federal research facility Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory demonstrates a method for predicting the structural integrity of 3D printed metal structures. The research focuses mainly on 3D printed latt [...]

Researchers in the departments of Mechanical, and Electronic & Electrical Engineering at the University of Sheffield in the UK, have demonstrated an alternative technique for 3D printing metal. Termed ‘Diode Area Melting’, the [...]

Researching ways to make smart materials capable of autonomous, and often sensory, behaviour The Ke Functional Materials Group at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire, has 3D printed a polymer capable of lifting up to 15 ti [...]

As current electronics are easily breakable, researchers are looking to develop a way to make them more flexible, and intuitive. With 3D printing, one project from the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) at MI [...]

Research from the George W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) in Atlanta, demonstrates a method combining 3D printing with salt leaching to produce porous materials. Materi [...]

Researchers in Italy and Poland demonstrate a mathematical approach to predicting the structure of 3D printed elastic structures. By practically realizing elastic theory, the study opens up the potential of 3D printed metamaterial [...]

According to the UK's Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC), control is the key factor for the implementation of additive manufacturing in an industrial setting. Speaking at today's Additive World conference, in which 3D Printing [...]
