Rapid 3D Printing Method Moves Towards 3D Printed Organs

Rapid 3D Printing Method Moves Towards 3D Printed Organs

It looks like science fiction: A machine dips into a shallow vat of translucent yellow goo and pulls out what becomes a life-sized hand. The hand, which would take six hours to create using conventional 3D printing methods, demonstrates what engineers say is progress toward 3D-printed human tissue and organs — biotechnology that could eventually save countless lives lost due to the shortage of donor organs.

3 Key Growth Drivers for the Aerogel Market

3 Key Growth Drivers for the Aerogel Market

The aerogel market is forecast to exceed $700m within the next decade. This may appear modest for a unique material family that has been known for nearly a century, but after long periods of stagnation and several market failings this would represent a significant growth from the market status in 2020. This article will look at what will be driving this growth.

World's First 3D Printed School for Madagascar

World's First 3D Printed School for Madagascar

A new project in Madagascar is using 3D printing to create new schools. Non-profit organisation Thinking Huts has partnered with architectural design agency Studio Mortazavi to create the world's first 3D-printed school on the campus of a university in Fianarantsoa, Madagascar. It is aiming to tackle the shortage of educational infrastructure which in many countries contributes to fewer children getting a good education.

3D Printed Novel Biomaterial Mimics Properties of Living Tissues

3D Printed Novel Biomaterial Mimics Properties of Living Tissues

Imagine if surgeons could transplant healthy neurons into patients living with neurodegenerative diseases or brain and spinal cord injuries. And imagine if they could "grow" these neurons in the laboratory from a patient's own cells using a synthetic, highly bioactive material that is suitable for 3D printing.

6G Communications Needs Vast Areas of Printed Electronics

6G Communications Needs Vast Areas of Printed Electronics

There is a near consensus that today's 5G communications and even its planned enhancement called Beyond 5G, i.e. B5G, will not meet the burgeoning requirements of industry, healthcare, aerospace, smart cities or even home entertainment. They need the services promised by 6G communications, though that has no specifications, roadmap or even frequency decided as yet.

CVD Graphene for Electronic Applications: 2021 Status and Outlook

CVD Graphene for Electronic Applications: 2021 Status and Outlook

Given the exciting properties, graphene has always been linked as a revolutionary material for the electronics industry. CVD graphene is cited as the ideal solution in providing a perfect single layer produced in a low cost continuous R2R process, but the manufacturing and commercial reality have proved very different. After a long period of research, and with players regularly exiting and entering the field, we are only now starting to see this technology mature and the dawn of the commercial reality.
