On Tuesday, April 4, 2018, the ONO Team finally received the long-awaited UL certification for the latest redesign of the electronics board. Several months ago, an issue was found with the compatibility of the printer with some phones on the market. This prompted the team to go back to the drawing board and redesign the electronics to solve this problem, not only for the phones on the market today, but guard against the newer phones also being incompatible.
Kuen-Ren “Roland” Chen, an assistant professor in the WSU School of Mechanical and Materials Engineering, received an €250,000, 18-month exploratory grant to use 3D printing to develop a programmable microneedle array that can deliver drugs directly into the eye in a sustained manner.
The 3D printing materials market will experience high double-digit growth in the aerospace industry through 2024, as manufacturers of aircraft and spacecraft vehicles and components increasingly adopt and reap the benefits of additive manufacturing, market analysts at Frost & Sullivan in Mountain View, California, predict.
Audi expects significant reduction in prototyping lead times for tail light covers, with turnaround times decreasing up to 50% in comparison to traditional methods. The vivid colors of the Stratasys J750 3D Printer enables Audi to produce transparent, multi-colored parts meeting texture and color-matching requirements of its stringent design approval process.
It means the technique could be used in the future to ensure an unlimited supply of corneas. As the outermost layer of the human eye, the cornea has an important role in focusing vision. Yet there is a significant shortage of corneas available to transplant, with 10 million people worldwide requiring surgery to prevent corneal blindness as a result of diseases such as trachoma, an infectious eye disorder.
In the city of Eindhoven the realization of the first of five planned 3D-printed concrete houses will start this year. The project, called Project Milestone, is a world’s first, as the houses will all be occupied. The six parties involved showed the design today.
