Rapid 3D Printing with Visible Light

Rapid 3D Printing with Visible Light

3D printing has driven innovations in fields ranging from art to aerospace to medicine. However, the high-energy ultraviolet light used in most 3D printers to cure liquid resins into solid objects limits the technique's applications.

3D Printed Solid State Batteries

3D Printed Solid State Batteries

This could be a game changer for the development of solid-state batteries. An automated 3D printing production process could save up to 70% of the traditional Capex used to produce solid-state batteries. Solid-state batteries are also safer as they do not use flammable liquid electrolytes that are also more harmful to the environment.

Optomec Customer Carnegie Mellon Develops 10-Second COVID Test

Optomec Customer Carnegie Mellon Develops 10-Second COVID Test

Researchers have developed a low-cost sensor that can identify COVID-19 antibodies in approximately 10 seconds. The novel sensor is based on a special structure of tiny gold electrodes that are 3D printed using the Optomec Aerosol Jet process.

3D Printing Method Jump-Starts Tiny Medical Devices for the Body

3D Printing Method Jump-Starts Tiny Medical Devices for the Body

Researchers have developed a new method of 3D-printing gels and other soft materials that has the potential to create complex structures with nanometer-scale precision. Because many gels are compatible with living cells, the new method could jump-start the production of soft tiny medical devices such as drug delivery systems or flexible electrodes that can be inserted into the human body.

Oxygen-Releasing Bioink for 3D Bioprinting

Oxygen-Releasing Bioink for 3D Bioprinting

A collaborative team has developed a bioink that can generate oxygen and deliver it to cells in 3D printed tissues to keep them alive before blood vessels penetrate the tissue. Therefore, when it is used in 3D bioprinting to construct tissue implants, the ability of cells to regenerate new tissue is greatly enhanced.

Wool-Like Material Could be Used in Smart Textiles, Medical Devices

Wool-Like Material Could be Used in Smart Textiles, Medical Devices

Researchers have developed a biocompatible material that can be 3D-printed into any shape and pre-programmed with reversible shape memory. The material is made using keratin, a fibrous protein found in hair, nails and shells. The researchers extracted the keratin from leftover Agora wool used in textile manufacturing.
