Video: 3D-printing a lunar base
Could astronauts one day be printing rather than building a base on the Moon? In 2013 ESA, working with industrial partners, proved that 3D printing using lunar material was feasible in principle. Since then, work continues ...
Printing innovations provide tenfold improvement in organic electronics
SLAC and Stanford researchers have developed a new, printing process for organic thin-film electronics that results in films of strikingly higher quality.
Researchers develop method for creating artificial fingerprints
These bots were made for walking: Cells power biological machines
They're soft, biocompatible, about 7 millimeters long – and, incredibly, able to walk by themselves. Miniature "bio-bots" developed at the University of Illinois are making tracks in synthetic biology.
3D printing applied to evolutionary relationships and biology
When you think 3D you probably imagine the cinema and popcorn, or that fancy TV you've just blown the kids' university fees on. What you probably don't think – unless you're a particular breed of palaeontologist ...
Photos reflect light like 3D objects with novel printing technology
A novel printing method yields photos that respond to different angles of light the same way a three-dimensional object does. The technique, which uses specially designed "reflectance paper" covered with ...
New printing method for nanostructures
(Phys.org) -- Swiss researchers have developed an economic, fast and reproducible method for printing tiny structures with a simple printing method. Now they are planning a spin-off.
