Smarticle robots built from smaller swarming robots

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, military, robotics/AI

Swarming 3D printed smarticles unlock new method of robot locomotion and may be able to form load-bearing structures

An accidental discovery about construction staples led to the development of the swarming robots. Nick Gravish, a doctoral student at Georgia Tech working on a project with the Army Research Laboratory, found that if these heavy duty staples were poured into a box with removable sides, they would self-assemble into tower structures that will stay standing even if the box was disassembled. This, he realised, meant that entangling simple structures could lead to the formation of a composite structure with mechanical properties well beyond those of the original structures.

Home: Apparently people are cool with lumber as an industry, as opposed to lumber as a carbon collector

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, habitats, sustainability

Choice is the one thing our creators gave us. Me, personally I prefer hemp, and not just because I smoke the female version for medicinal reasons, but because scientifically it makes sense, and can help unscrew #AmericanFarmers…Yes we need more forests, not less. However, we don’t need to use trees, when we have hemp. Pembient can 3D Print ivory, thus making animal Ivory obsolete, yet people still kill for Ivory. We can make wood products from hemp, yet we still fell trees. #HowDumbAreWe

Eco-Friendly Our hemp is grown using sustainable methods, which helps eliminate deforestation.

Made in the USA All hemp growth and material production is conducted in the United States of America.

This Meaty-Looking “Steak” Is Made From Peas and Seaweed

Posted by in category: 3D printing

Spanish startup Novameat has unveiled a plant-based steak it says is the “most realistic” yet — and it costs about the same as what you’re likely to pay for a traditional cut of beef.

Its creator used a 3D printer to mimic muscle fibers.

World’s First 3D-Printed Heart Could Revolutionize Organ Transplants

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, biotech/medical

Many of you are way ahead of me on this topic. I design 3D printed parts for aircraft, but I didn’t think that functional, transplantable 3D printed human organs were this advanced. This article is about a heart, but it is currently only the size of a rabbit heart. Sizing it up to human size and testing are next, but this is much farther along than I expected.

Rapid creation of replacement organs, using the patient’s own cells to circumvent the body rejecting the transplant, is a direct contributor to superlongevity.

Researchers find a way to 3D print whole objects in seconds

Posted by in category: 3D printing

When you think of 3D printing, you probably imagine a structure being created layer by layer, from the bottom up. Now, researchers from Switzerland’s Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) say they have developed a completely new way of creating 3D objects that offer remarkable resolution “in record time.”

As EPFL News reports, the method draws on the principle of tomography — the technique for displaying a representation of a cross section through a solid object, using x-rays or ultrasound. To make an object, a photosensitive resin is illuminated from multiple angles, with the accumulation of light helping to solidify the resin. In other words, the object forms a solid structure within the resin in one go, rather than segment by segment, as is the case with traditional 3D printing.
