These Blossoming Flowers Are the First Inflatable 3D-Printed Object (video)

Most objects created by 3D printers are made from hard rigid plastics, but as the hardware is continually being improved, new materials are coming into play.

ExoHand by Festo, A custom 3d printer made exoskeleton robotic hand demo

ExoHand by Festo, A custom 3d printer made exoskeleton robotic hand demo | Digital Design and Manufacturing | Scoop.it

 “The ExoHand from Festo — an active manual orthosis with sensitive fingers The ExoHand from Festo is an exoskeleton that can be worn like a glove. The fingers can be actively moved and their strength amplified; the operator’s hand movements are registered and transmitted to the robotic hand in real time.

The ExoHand, which is customised to fit the hand of the individual user, is manufactured from polyamide in the selective laser sintering (SLS) process. For this purpose, the exoskeleton is produced on the basis of a 3D scan of the user’s hand.”

3D-Printed Bat Wing May Guide the Future of Aircraft Design

3D-Printed Bat Wing May Guide the Future of Aircraft Design | Digital Design and Manufacturing | Scoop.it

"Unlike most aircraft, a bat’s wing is in constant motion when in flight. Researchers at Brown University are looking to this motion to influence the future of aircraft design.

To better understand how the bat’s wing moves, members of the Brown Swartz Lab have 3D printed a model of the lesser dog faced fruit bat’s wing and added a force transducer to its base. When placed inside a wind tunnel, the robot’s three servo motors control the model’s seven joints and the transducer records the aerodynamic forces acting on the wing."

The Future of Manufacturing

The Future of Manufacturing | Digital Design and Manufacturing | Scoop.it
According to engineers with GE Aviation, the challenges of additive metal manufacturing—serious as they are—are small compared to the promise that this technology holds. How else can you make a plane engine 1,000 pounds lighter?

Improving the world through engineering

Improving the world through engineering | Digital Design and Manufacturing | Scoop.it

"Dan Johns, a world expert in additive manufacturing, currently working on the Bloodhound SSC project, is featured in the book. He says: “Additive manufacturing offers true freedom of design to alter the mechanical behaviour of things and design them from the inside out. Design and manufacture will truly emulate nature, where nothing is straight or square, material is only placed where it is needed and systems are smart and fully integrated. In this renaissance, engineers will be artists and visionaries to match the genius of Leonardo da Vinci."
