Is 4D printing a disruptive or Innovative technology?

Written by defenceWeb, Wednesday, 27 August 2014 A 3D printed gun. The aerospace, defence, automotive and healthcare industries will lead the adoption of four dimensional printing technology, which is poised to have a disruptive effect in multiple industries by printing objects ranging from human organs to parts used in aircraft and vehicles, according to Frost & Sullivan. Four-dimensional (4-D) printing develops materials that alter their properties and behaviours based on external stimuli such as changes in temperature. “4-D printing, an extension of three-dimensional printing, is superior to conventional manufacturing techniques in terms of performance, efficiency and quality, and can […]

The Potential of 3D Printing Electronics

3D electronic printing holds promise of applications for soldiers As researchers at Picatinny Arsenal explore the potential of 3-dimensional printing, they envision the potential to embed a radio antenna on the side of a Soldier’s helmet, or print sensors directly onto a weapon or even an article of clothing. Over the past few years, advancements in 3D printing have enabled scientists to print items ranging from body organs to candy. At Picatinny, scientists and engineers are using additive manufacturing and 3D printing to print electronics, weapon components, and training models. Additive manufacturing, which includes 3D printing, lets engineers create […]

New 3D printer for the price of a smartphone

Cheap 3D printing A college student in the US has developed a simple, affordable 3D printer which costs only a third of the price of a conventional 3D printer. Shai Schechter, from Purchase College, State University of New York, developed the low-cost device called Deltaprintr. " We have a laser- and powder-based 3D printer at school, but it costs about USD 500 for a bucket of powder and that only lasts for about one or two prints ," Schechter said. " It’s never used because it is so expensive and classes weren’t offered that much in the curriculum, " […]
