Lab makes 4-D printing more practical

Soft robots and biomedical implants that reconfigure themselves upon demand are closer to reality with a new way to print shapeshifting materials.

Microstructures self-assemble into new materials

A new process developed at Caltech makes it possible for the first time to manufacture large quantities of materials whose structure is designed at a nanometer scale—the size of DNA's double helix.

Researchers create functional mini-liver by 3-D bioprinting

Using human blood cells, Brazilian researchers have obtained hepatic organoids ("mini-livers") that perform all of the liver's typical functions, such as producing vital proteins, storing vitamins and secreting bile, among ...

Adding copper strengthens 3-D-printed titanium

Successful trials of titanium-copper alloys for 3-D printing could kickstart a new range of high-performance alloys for medical device, defence and aerospace applications.

Glass from a 3-D printer

ETH researchers used a 3-D printing process to produce complex and highly porous glass objects. The basis for this is a special resin that can be cured with UV light.
