Researchers have examined common methods used to locate defects inside components.
Rather than carving a geometric shape out of a big block of material, additive manufacturing builds the product layer by layer. We report on the research and applications of 3D and 4D printing of devices and equipment, and the bioprinting of biomaterials.
Scientists from Empa were able to 3D print stable well-shaped microstructures made from silica aerogels for use in biotechnology and precision engineering.
A 3D printed microneedle vaccine patch delivers stronger immune response than a vaccine shot.
Researchers have developed a method to integrate sensing capabilities into 3D printable structures comprised of repetitive cells.
Marc Knebel, head of Medical Systems at Evonik, explains the benefits and applications of the new high-performance polymer VESTAKEEP Care M40 3DF.
Bioprinted 3D cardiac patches could reverse scar formation and promote myocardial regeneration after heart attacks.
The Scar Free Foundation has launched a research programme that aims to revolutionise surgeons’ ability to reconstruct nose and ear cartilage in patients affected by facial difference.
Researchers have developed a new process for producing movable, self-adjusting materials systems with standard 3D-printers.
In order to quickly customize implants with complex structures, scientists use 3D printing technology to prepare Ti-Mo alloy implants, and then adjust the microstructure and performance through subsequent heat treatment.
