3D Printed, Personalised, Wireless Wearables That Never Need a Charge

3D Printed, Personalised, Wireless Wearables That Never Need a Charge

Engineers have developed a type of wearable they call a "biosymbiotic device," which has several unprecedented benefits. Not only are the devices custom 3D-printed and based on body scans of wearers, but they can operate continuously using a combination of wireless power transfer and compact energy storage.

Pellet 3D Printing

Pellet 3D Printing

Pellet 3D printing (sometimes called pellet extrusion or fused granulate fabrication (FGF) is a material extrusion-based printing technology that differentiates itself from other extrusion-based technologies (like FFF/FDM) through its feedstock.

Thursday 21 October 2021 - IME offers multiple advantages relative to conventional mechanical switches, including reduction in weight and material consumption of up to 70% along with a much simpler assembly. Given these benefits, and increasing interest from OEMs/manufacturers/material suppliers, IDTechEx forecasts IME to be a $1.5bn market by 2032.

Concrete 3D Printing

Concrete 3D Printing

In 2005 cement materials, called Contour Crafting publicly introduced the idea of digitally controlled extrusion of . A few years afterwards, Italian entrepreneur Enrico Dini presented the concept of using a powder-bed technique (specifically binder jetting) to 3D print concrete by building a small house. By 2014, the number of large-scale concrete 3D printing began to increase substantially.

3D Printing Blood Vessel Networks

3D Printing Blood Vessel Networks

Researchers have succeeded in creating a hierarchical blood vessel network, necessary for supplying blood to implanted tissue using 3D printing for creating big and small blood vessels to form for the first time a system that contained a functional combination of both.

Tweaking Alloy Microchemistry For Flawless Metal 3D Printing

Tweaking Alloy Microchemistry For Flawless Metal 3D Printing

A new study has further refined the process of creating superior metal parts using laser powder bed fusion 3D printing techniques. By using a combination of machine learning and single-track 3D printing experiments, they have identified the favorable alloy chemistries and process parameters, like laser speed and power, needed to print parts with uniform properties at the microscale.

Electronic Glove and Gaming Make Rehabilitation Fun

Electronic Glove and Gaming Make Rehabilitation Fun

After a hand injury, it is important to follow a rehabilitation programme to ensure a quick recovery and re-establish strength and function of the hand. The material belongs to the CareGum family. This particular one is thermo-electric, based on silk and has a number of features that makes it versatile and excellent as a wearable sensor on the human body.
