Scientists in Japan recently used a promising new 3D printing material to create objects so small that they are the size as a single bacteria. The researchers were able print shapes that are measured in mere micrometers, including the world’s tiniest rabbit. While the demonstration may be playful, the application certainly isn’t – this new technology may someday be used to print cells and micro-electrodes for medical purposes.

These days, 3D printers can create just about anything – from human organs to deadly weapons. But one innovation we haven’t previously seen in 3D printing? Printer filament made from of planet-friendly materials rather than Earth-damaging plastics. That’s changing however, with design firm Emerging Objects‘ recycled and recyclable 3D printing materials. Using materials like salt, concrete, wood and paper, they are putting the green in 3D printing.

3D printing could break laws: Is Canada ready?

May 11th, 2013 No comments

3D scanning and printing technology could make it possible to reproduce objects of all shapes and sizes, potentially infringing on patents, trademarks and copyrights. CBC’s Spark asks legal experts about the potential issues and whether Canadian law is equipped to deal with them.

Organovo 3D-Prints the World’s First Tiny Human Livers

April 24th, 2013 No comments

San Diego-based bioprinting company Organovo has successfully created functional 3D-printed livers—albeit very, very tiny ones. At half a millimeter deep by four millimeters wide, the livers will likely be used for medical tests, but Organovo hopes that they will soon produce full-sized livers that could do away with agonizing waits on long transplant lists.

If you’ve always had trouble finding the perfect pair of headphones, this new 3D-printed iteration just might be music to your ears. Made with just a few simple elements, they combine 3D-printed parts with raw materials such wire, tape, solder and magnets. The designer, J.C. Karich, 3D-printed the speaker pieces, ear parts and even the plug, which can fit a standard jack connector. Although the headphones need a power amplifier to play music from a smartphone, Karich claims that the sound quality is actually better than expected.

The extraordinary development of 3D printing technology has given one British man his life back.  Thanks to the incredible advancements of 3D printing in the medical field, Eric Moger received a 3D-printed face, enabling him to eat, drink, and speak regularly again. Moger lost a large portion of his face when he developed a cancerous growth that had to be removed, and he was recently fitted with a functional mask that changed his life.

Hugh Lyman, an 83-year-old retiree from Enumclaw, Washington, won The Desktop Factory Competition with his design for a low-cost, open-source machine capable of turning resin pellets into inexpensive filament for 3D printing. The competition, sponsored by Inventables, Kauffman, and the Maker Education Initiative, required that the parts used to make the machine could cost no more than $250.

As if the rise of 3D printing in the past few years wasn’t cool enough, MIT’s Skylar Tibbits just unveiled the future of 4D printing in a TED talk this week. It may sound unbelievable, but the new technology combines 3D printing with shape-shifting design. Tibbits explained that the process involves a 3D-printed object that is capable of self-assembling or changing into another shape when exposed to an outside factor like heat, water, light or sound.

German engineer and inventor Marcus Thymark is developing a filament-producing machine that allows 3D printing enthusiasts to grind up and reprocess discarded printed objects and other scrap plastic for re-use. Called the FilaMaker, Thymark’s machine is based on a powerful hand-cranked shredder that can be made from steel or stainless steel. He is working on integrating the shredder with a melter and extruder, which will allow the user to recycle scrap plastic into new filament.

Ocean scientists are making good use of the latest in 3D printing technology, as researchers in Australia are using 3D printers to produce more effective tags that can be used to track large fish. Scientists at the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), Australia’s national science agency, are printing the new titanium tags in Melbourne and shipping them to Tasmania, where they’re being used to track swordfish, marlin and tuna. The new tags are durable, non-corrosive, and most importantly, they’re non-toxic to the fish.
