An entirely decentralized network of self-defense rights advocates have taken to the internet to provide plans for 3D-printed guns.
Decay by design: These 3D-printed organic plastics naturally decompose A group at MIT created polymers derived from organic matter, printed by a robot, and shaped by water.
A noble plan to improve housing access for those in need through cutting-edge construction technology is gathering momentum, with a blueprint now in place for what is billed as the world's first 3D-printed community.
Berkeley Labs has 3D-printed an all-liquid device that, with the click of a button, can be repeatedly reconfigured on demand to serve a wide range of applications – from making battery materials to screening drug candidates.
The strongest synthetic materials are often those that intentionally mimic nature.
In a major medical breakthrough, Tel Aviv University researchers "printed" the world's first 3D vascularized engineered heart using a patient's own cells and biological materials.
For some time now, we've been hearing about implantable scaffolding-like material that helps heal injuries to bones. Scientists have now developed a new type of that material, aimed specifically at difficult-to-treat osteochondral injuries.
IKEA furniture may be as tricky to assemble, but normal use of their kitchen cabinets and lamps may also be a challenge to homeowners with disabilities--that's why the company is now offering open-access updates to their furniture.
While the advent of 3D printers is commonly thought of as a revolution for manufacturing, it could have huge benefits for medicine as well.
"The Non-Violence Torrent" is an initiative that, according to themselves, aims to disrupt the 3D-printed gun market. They plan to do this by flooding popular file sharing sites with fake gun CAD files and torrents. Instead of the CAD file, your
