“Carbomorph” material to enable 3D printing of custom personal electronics

“Carbomorph” material to enable 3D printing of custom personal electronics | 3D Printing - What could the Future Offer? | Scoop.it
University of Warwick researchers have created a material that can be used to cheaply 3D-print simple functioning electronic devices.
Nathan Judson's insight:

Making your own electronics with 3D printed conductive plastic called "Carbomorph".  which means electronic tracks and touch sensitive areas can now be embedded into your 3D printed objects without any hassle. In the next 10 years this could open up the world to possibilities of bionic arms and  cheaper electironics.

IBM Sees 3D Printing Changing Manufacturing

IBM Sees 3D Printing Changing Manufacturing | 3D Printing - What could the Future Offer? | Scoop.it

In a keynote speech delivered at the Siemens PLM Innovation Conference, Brody acknowledged that open source electronics, intelligent robotics and… wait for it… 3D printing are technologies that will have a disruptive impact on the way companies design and produce products.

Nathan Judson's insight:

In Paul Brody's Speech he says that 3D priniting will become more and more accesable for consumers to print in their own homes with software that is becoming more and more avaliable to everyone. To back up this claim, Brody references an IBM survey. “80% of consumers told IBM… that they are willing to help enterprises develop their products.” Brody then warns, “Accept their help, or see them build your competition on Kickstarter.”

New Material Brings More Flexibility To 3D Printing

Most 3D printed objects are made out of hard plastic. While its great for some projects, others require a material with more elasticity. There’s already a few flexible materials on the market, but one 3D printing company thinks it has the best flexible material yet.

Nathan Judson's insight:

A new printing material brings a new style of printing to 3d Printing, "TPU 92A-1" is what its called and it is very durable and very flexable.

Nathan Judson's insight:

I totally agree with this, because it adds a visual aid for students doing graphics based subjects. Being able to print out three dimentional designs to add the perspective into the students hands which makes learining much more easier and fun. Even using the laser cutter at school helped me alot when making my models for my assessment in Technology studies.

Space architects plan 3D-printed lunar base

Space architects plan 3D-printed lunar base | 3D Printing - What could the Future Offer? | Scoop.it
London "space architects" develop proposal for a lunar base, 3D printed by spider robots using microwaves, solar energy and lunar dust.
Nathan Judson's insight:

Amazing, if this is deemed possible using new methods of 3D printing what could the future bring? In 5 to 10 years time we could have robots going into space and building a space base on the moon. In 10 - 20 years a base on mars, having permanent habitats on the moon and mars for researchers and important exploratory and mineral gathering all from 3D printing.

3D printer hobbyists are often impressed with machines that are able to print large objects. What’s even more amazing, however, is when a 3D printer is able to create micro and nano-scale objects.

Nathan Judson's insight:

A German 3D printing company has recently developed a 3D printing maching capable of printing a micro scale spaceship in under 50 seconds.

Whether to create models or finished works, the use of 3D printing in fine-art sculpture is still relatively rare. Those who employ it expect it grow.
Nathan Judson's insight:

3D printing is changing the art industry in the long run, you may not see it much now but in 5 - 10 years being able to make your own creation of art sculptures in your own home is becoming a more and more popular.

Nathan Judson's insight:

Another great theory that could potentially happen in the next 5 to 10 years in 3D printing, having robots print large structures in space rather then on earth saving the need to find and build lift of space crafts large enough to carry it off earth.

Josh Hurn's curator insight, March 20, 2013 1:41 AM

This article thoroughly shows a perfect example of what 3D printing will be able to acheive in the next 5-10 years. As it is said in this article a company called 'Made In Space' has already successfully printed 3D tools in zero gravity. These techniques used in the next 5 - 10 years will be able to create remarkable things.
