New Solution for Stem Cell Manufacturing

New Solution for Stem Cell Manufacturing

Researchers have developed a unique 3D printed system for harvesting stem cells from bioreactors, offering the potential for high quality, wide-scale production of stem cells in Australia at a lower cost. Stem cells offer great promise in the treatment of many diseases and injuries, from arthritis and diabetes to cancer, due to their ability to replace damaged cells. However, current technology used to harvest stem cells is labour intensive, time consuming and expensive.

Velo3D Sapphire XC 1MZ to Enable Large-format Metal 3D Printing

Velo3D Sapphire XC 1MZ to Enable Large-format Metal 3D Printing

Velo3D Inc announced a new addition to its Sapphire family of printers with the Sapphire XC 1MZ. The new printer allows customers to print parts one meter in height—with a total build volume that is twice that of the Sapphire XC and nine times larger than the original Sapphire—increasing the addressable use-cases of Velo3D's end-to-end metal additive manufacturing solution.

3D Printing Materials: A $29.5 Billion Opportunity Ripe for Innovation

3D Printing Materials: A $29.5 Billion Opportunity Ripe for Innovation

The growth potential for AM materials differs from printing equipment, as operational legacy printers continue to consume materials. Therefore, this segment of the 3D printing value chain represents a tremendous opportunity.

Flexible, Highly Sensitive Motion Device Created by Extrusion Printing

Flexible, Highly Sensitive Motion Device Created by Extrusion Printing

The creation of high-resolution extrusion printing—think 3D printing but with ink that conducts electricity—has enabled researchers to explore the potential of wearable human motion devices.

Single-Step, All-In-One 3D Printing Method to Make Robotic Materials

Single-Step, All-In-One 3D Printing Method to Make Robotic Materials

A team of engineers and their colleagues have developed a new design strategy and 3D printing technique to build robots in one single step. The breakthrough enabled the entire mechanical and electronic systems needed to operate a robot to be manufactured all at once by a new type of 3D printing process for engineered active materials with multiple functions (also known as metamaterials). Once 3D printed, a "meta-bot" will be capable of propulsion, movement, sensing and decision-making.

Closed-Loop Additive Manufacturing Field by Upcycled Plastic

Closed-Loop Additive Manufacturing Field by Upcycled Plastic

Researchers have developed an upcycling approach that adds value to discarded plastics for reuse in additive manufacturing, or 3D printing. The readily adoptable, scalable method introduces a closed-loop strategy that could globally reduce plastic waste and cut carbon emissions tied to plastic production.
