HP Inc. on Monday stepped into the world of 3D metal printing with Metal Jet. HP Metal Jet is the world’s most advanced 3D printing technology for mass manufacturing of production-grade metal parts. The company launched the machine at the 2018 International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS). The printing technology giant aims to transform the $12 trillion manufacturing industry in the mid of the digital industrial revolution. The automobile, industrial, and medical industries jointly manufacture billions of additive metal componen...
The childhood fantasy of making things magically appear has turned into a reality thanks to the 3D printers. This gadget is a major breakthrough in technology even in this day and age when new inventions take place on a regular basis. Owning such a printer is quite a novelty as it is extremely expensive and its setup requires a lot of space. Recently, a tech startup has come up with an all-metal 3D printer which can fit on one’s office desk without burning a hole in his pocket. The Snapmaker 3D printer is one such device which not onl...
Ford Inc. on Monday stated that they are testing a 3D printing prototype in its Dearborn, Michigan Research and Innovation Centre with a motive of scaling up the development of the new cars. The US-based automaker is making attempts to customize and develop cost-effective car parts. The massive 3D printing machine installed by Ford Inc. at its research centre is Stratasys Infinite Build; a Minnesota-based 3D printing giant. The US automaker stated that the machine bears the capability to print large car parts on a single print. Major...
Daqri, a California based augmented reality start-up has created a 3D printer powered by Hologram. The 3D printer can print solid objects faster, exhibiting a new kind of head-up display. The super-fast 3D printer uses a laser to cure a light activated monomer into a solid plastic. The technique is to scan the whole object at once using constant coherent radiation or hologram to create the perfect shape. The whole scanning of the desired object makes the process rapid and precise. The 3D printer flashes a green laser which shines up ...
Marijuana legalization is inevitable. Twenty-three states and the District of Columbia have liberalized marijuana laws already. While Colorado and Washington state are taking a more traditional approach by establishing ‘regulated markets’, Washington, D.C. is condemning it with a new system “grow and give”. It means that ‘potrepreneurs’ hoping to cash in on the reefer rush, have to rely on ‘gift economy’ where they’re allowed to grow Mary Jane, smoke it, and give it away – but, not cash in on it. Heck, growing pot is tricky, if you...
For some researchers 3D printing is limited to electronic devices. Researchers at Princeton University have gone beyond the limitations by using 3D printing to create an entire contact lens with LEDS embedded into it. For the contact lens to function, it would need an external energy sources which is obviously impractical in today’s world where only fully functioning devices are widespread. The Princeton team, however, created the contact lens with an entirely different aim in mind. It wanted to show that it is actually possible to c...
Scientists from Nanyang Technological University (NTU) have successfully printed complex electronic circuits by using a common t-shirt printer. The electronic circuits are printed utilizing special materials as a part of layers on top of regular flexible materials, for example, plastic, aluminum foil and paper. Non-toxic materials such as silver nanoparticles, carbon and plastics are utilized to print the key segments of a complex electronic circuit, namely resistors, transistors and capacitors. Associate Professor Joseph Change, w...
