Production microfabrication is the goal of the new Quantum X from Nanoscribe, which can produce microscopic 3D prints measured in nanomaters.
If you’re engineering hardware that has any one of: a camera, an LED, a display, an IR sensor, a lens, a laser, a reflector, or an optical fiber, guess what?!
A new cartridge system means InssTek customers don’t have to choose between fast and fine for metal 3D printing.
I’m having trouble getting my head around a new concept discovered by researchers.
Sufferers of corneal blindness due to burns, diseases, and other misfortunes can see the light once again
I’m reading material from Germany-based Multiphoton Optics and am staggered by the variety of applications.
If you haven’t heard of Multiphoton Optics, you will soon, as the German company has developed a very powerful 3D printing process that is quite unlike others.
Researchers at Northwestern University have used a 3D printing technique called “projection micro-stereo-lithography” to create incredibly complex lenses.
3D printing technologies are assisting new efforts to curb light pollution worldwide.
Startup Protos is offering the opportunity to purchase 3D printed eyeglass frames. The obvious benefit is that the frames are precisely fit to your measurements, as shown in the image above. The frames are said to be 3D printed with a “proprietary material is lighter than titanium and more flexible than commonly used acetate… Continue reading Protos 3D Printed Eyewear
We were contacted by Karl D. D. WIllis of the Disney Research Institute, who wished to show us the work they’ve been doing on 3D printing optical mechanisms. This past June we speculated on the importance of clear materials, but we had no idea how far along researchers have taken the concept. The… Continue reading 3D Printed Optics
