Several new AM materials were announced in the past week.
The UK’s high-speed rail project, HS2, will use advanced construction 3D printing.
Tethon 3D announced a suite of three new and extremely interesting 3D printing resins suitable for industrial use.
Researchers have been able to 3D print an entire lithium-ion battery, but challenges remain.
Graphene is one of those wonder materials you hear about, but somehow can never be properly 3D printed.
I’m reading a fascinating report on a new way to work with miracle material graphene.
I’m reading some research from last month where a new process was used to create graphene, but there are some other implications of the discovery.
At one-atom thick, graphene is the lightest and strongest material in the world. Harnessing its power, however, has not been easy as it’s not a simple process to manipulate the world’s toughest material. Additive manufacturing (AM) may hold the answer.
Graphene. That awesome meta-material that was identified in 1916, imaged in 1948, grown on substrates in the 70’s, and finally manufactured in 2014, has yet to be incorporated into any consumer market applications.
It’s been quite problematic to 3D print graphene, but researchers at the University of Buffalo have come up with a very cool solution.
Researchers at UC Santa Cruz have developed a method of 3D printing graphene electrodes that could revolutionize the way we power mobile devices.
We’re checking out Sharestation 3D, a site dedicated to 3D printed electronics projects.
A startup hopes to develop not only graphene materials for 3D printers, but a 3D printer designed for graphene printing. But we’re not so sure.
Graphene 3D Labs is developing a new family of 3D printer filaments, the first being one made from graphene.
