3D Printed Algae has Applications in Energy, Medicine, Fashion, Space

3D Printed Algae has Applications in Energy, Medicine, Fashion, Space

Researchers use 3D printing to create a novel, environmentally friendly material made of algae that has applications not only for energy and medicine, but also for fashion and space exploration. Living materials, which are made by housing biological cells within a nonliving matrix, have gained popularity in recent years as scientists recognize that often the most robust materials are those that mimic nature.

3D Printed Material to Replace Ivory

3D Printed Material to Replace Ivory

For centuries, ivory was often used to make art objects. But to protect elephant populations, the ivory trade was banned internationally in 1989. To restore ivory parts of old art objects, one must therefore resort to substitute materials - such as bones, shells or plastic. However, there has not been a really satisfactory solution so far.
