A paper published in Advanced Functional Materials demonstrates a method for creating, and 3D printing, inks made from plant cellulose. 3D printed grids made from the ink exhibit mechanical properties similar to those found in woo [...]

Engineers at UC San Diego's Bioinspired Robotics and Design Lab have presented a paper demonstrating the use of 3D printing to make a robot capable of walking over uneven surfaces. Development of the four-legged device is in prepa [...]

A 3D printing method outlined by researchers at the University of Florida demonstrates a way of making comfortable, flexible, strong and affordable implants for patients. Using liquid silicone, the method is capable of creating de [...]

The McAlpine Research Group at the University of Minnesota's Department of Mechanical Engineering have released an article demonstrating a method for 3D printing tiny, multimaterial sensors. The electronics used in the devices are [...]

Research from the Engineering Design and Computing Laboratory at ETH Zurich in Switzerland, demonstrates multimaterial 4D printing of tetrahedrons. The shapes are initially 3D printed to be flat, but when heat is applied the tetra [...]

The Université de Bourgogne Franche-Comté in France, and Germany's Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) behind recent research on 3D printed micro glass, have published a study giving the blueprint for a new material that behav [...]

Researchers from Duke University have successfully 3D printed conductive metamaterials on a FDM machine. The process uses commercially available 3D printing filament containing conductive copper. This material, Electrifi, was deve [...]

The University of Sheffield Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) with Boeing has developed a new patent-pending hybrid 3D printing process called THREAD. The THREAD process enables the manufacturing of objects with integr [...]

Using nanoscopic 3D printing technology from Germany's Nanoscribe GmbH, the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Stuttgart has developed a strategy to make micromachines that can be controlled within the human body. Nam [...]

Research from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in Germany demonstrates the ability to repeatedly 3D print and erase microscopic objects in a light-reactive material. More than just a method of correcting 3D printed mist [...]
