Researchers have discovered how to tailor-make artificial body parts and other medical devices with built-in functionality that offers better shape and durability, while cutting the risk of bacterial infection at the same time.
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.
The Covid-19 pandemic highlights how remote healthcare robots currently being developed could be beneficial in the future.
Researchers have developed a 3D printing technique that creates cellular metallic materials by smashing together powder particles at supersonic speed.
Researchers have adapted a new class of materials for their groundbreaking volumetric 3D printing method that produces objects nearly instantly, greatly expanding the range of material properties achievable with the technique.
Scientists and collaborators are using machine learning to address two key barriers to industrialization of two-photon lithography.
An international team of scientists have discovered a new material that can be 3D printed to create tissue-like vascular structures. In a new study, researchers have developed a way to 3D print graphene oxide with a protein which can organise into tubular structures that replicate some properties of vascular tissue.
