Coming soon to a park near you ... if you live in Amsterdam
A new bridge is being planned in Amsterdam, which will be constructed by robots that will utilize a 3D printing technology. The project will be completed by Heijmans, the Dutch company responsible for building the solar roadway and other revolutionar
When it comes to creating surfaces, it's a simple task to either make ones that are smooth or ones that are bumpy. But now researchers at MIT have created one that can be both.
3D printing is time-consuming. Complex solid parts can be drawn out of the resin at rates of hundreds of millimeters per hour with under 100 microns resolution. These print speeds allow parts to be produced in minutes instead of hours.
Considering that fundamental parts such as the frame and wheel bearings are entirely printed in plastic, one would agree that TE's goal to portray a technology that manufactures load-bearing production parts has been achieved.
If you've ever wondered how 3D printers are made, the answer is surprisingly meta.
3D printing allows for creating unique and complex objects, but detailed, mechanical painting of such a diverse range of shapes has proven difficult. Water-transfer printing has been used for everything from car dashboards to press-on nails, but the
