Australian Scientists 3D-Print NEW Organs …US Student 3D-Prints a Gun

Posted: May 12th, 2013 | Author: | Filed under: Cankler Science Matters, REBLOG | Tags: , | Comments Off on Australian Scientists 3D-Print NEW Organs …US Student 3D-Prints a Gun

3d Printed EarIt’s proof perhaps that we live in an ironic world, Australian researchers are on the cusp of creating new human organs via 3D-printing. While a US student fires the first bullet from a home-made 3D Printed polymer gun.

On the up-side, Australian scientists say they have found a way to grow human body parts using 3D printing technology. The technology isn’t the only cleverness here, 3D printers are now so portable that they might be installed in hospitals.

The University of Wollongong’s Centre for Electromaterials Science is opening a research unit at Melbourne’s St Vincent’s Hospital where 3D printing will be used to reproduce tissue material.

In the US, the State Department has successfully demanded the removal of the 3D printed gun’s schematics from Defcad, a file-sharing site run by Defense Distributed, the group at the centre of the 3D-printed gun controversy.

However, those worried about the ability to download 3D-printed gun blueprints, fret not: The Pirate Bay is apparently on the case, the 3D Printed guns schematics are available for download :: Read the full article »»»»

The Industrial Revolution in Space: Made In Space

Posted: December 17th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Technoid Computer News | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , | Comments Off on The Industrial Revolution in Space: Made In Space

The industrial revolution has changed every aspect of life in the last 200 years, now it is moving on to the final frontier, Space. Made In Space – MIS -, is a recent entrant into the race to manufacture in space and they have recently completed their first series of zero-gravity manufacturing tests. With more than a billion dollars of parts flown into space every year MIS hopes to manufacture up to 30% of those parts in space, directly where they are needed, when they are needed. More than just a good idea this is the start of the industrial revolution of space.

“3D printing and in-space manufacturing will dramatically change the way we look at space exploration, commercialization, and mission design today.” said Aaron Kemmer, CEO and Co-Founder of Made In Space. “The possibilities range from building on-demand parts for human missions to building large space habitats that are optimized for space.” Read the full article »»»»


iModela, The Desktop 3D Printing Factory

Posted: October 26th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Buddhas Brother, Technoid Computer News, Technoid Gadget News | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , | Comments Off on iModela, The Desktop 3D Printing Factory

The world is shrinking, cities seem much closer together when you travel at near to the speed of sound, computers that once filled entire buildings now fit in your pocket and what once required factories full of machines can be done by the iM-01 iModela, the desktop 3D printing factory. Roland has managed to squeeze an entire automated production system into a box not much bigger than an inkjet printer and at $1000 they have managed to  bring desktop manufacturing to the masses, anyone with a computer and spare USB port can start the production line rolling.. A product of Roland’s little known DG division the iM-01 brings flexible manufacturing to a desktop near you.

“With iModela, artists around the world can bring their most innovative design ideas to life, adding dimension and style to creative projects, whether or not they have any previous experience with 3D technologies. iModela makes it easy to create a physical model from an artist’s 3D rendering, using powerful 3D modelling technology to sculpt shapes, drill holes, create reliefs, smooth surfaces and engrave designs. With iModela, 3D modellers and hobbyists can affordably produce even the most complex designs with precision.”,  John Wall, Roland DG Business Development Manager Read the full article »»»»
