"Suspended Depositions" -- 3D printing process with an Undo

Whenever you think you've seen it all, there comes something new. This time it's Brian Harms and his “Suspended Depositions”3D printing process.
Arnaud Bousquet's insight:

Nouveau procesus pour le fonctionnement des imprimantes 3D : déposer la matière dans un "gel".

 

Cela permet de faire des injections au cours de la fabrication, car on peut stoper le processus d'ajout de matière dans le gel.

 

 

The suspension of resin in space without added support material allows for the ability to navigate and fabricate directly on and around other existing objects within the Gel, as well as the ability to observe the process from any angle. The suspension of time in this process allows for tool changes, manual injections, on-the-fly robotic injections, multi-material injections, live modification of the digital or physical model, and the ability to physically “undo” (resin removal via suction or scooping).

Recycling 3D printing materials: 4 possible solutions - watch us make the future (feel free to join in)

Recycling 3D printing materials: 4 possible solutions  - watch us make the future (feel free to join in) | Matériaupôle | Scoop.it
 

Last week in a comment, Paul asked me, “When will more eco and sustainable materials be available for use in these printers?

 

Something like hemp plastic or other biodegradable materials?

 

What are the technical limitations and who is working on them?”

 

His question was a bit too big for a comment so I”mtrying to answer it here.

 

Below I outline, very broadly, four mayor developments in recycling and 3D printing.

 

These developments are: recycling existing 3D printing materials, using materials that are already recycled as 3D printing materials, bioplastics & recycling on location.

 

ABS- Recycling existing 3D printing materials


ABS is one of the world’s most widely used 3D printing materials. It is used in the RepRaps, Makerbots and of course by the inventors of the Fused Deposition Modeling process Stratasys.

 

While ABS is made from oil and lots of complicated sounding chemicals, it is recyclable. Fred Fischer, the Materials Business Development Director at Stratasys said that, “Stratasys has a company that comes in and picks up all our scrap and old sample parts and build sheets.

 

These companies typically regrind all the materials. The regrind is often used to make products like carpet, plastic decking, lawn furniture, etc.

 

Companies that will pick up and recycle the material exist pretty much anywhere in the developed world. A quick Google will often lead someone to find one in their local area.”

 

That is indeed great news and it seems like it could scale along with the growth of 3D printing.

Arnaud Bousquet's insight:

"Sponges seem an unlikely source for innovation, yet they may hold the key to new nanotechnologies, innovative optical devices and new ways of regrowing human bone and preventing bone disease. Difficult to believe? Not for Werner E.G. Müller. In the BIOSILICA project, he and his team are developing ways to adapt the complex processes that natural glassy sponges use to build their wondrous biosilica structures for use in biodegradable implants that would facilitate bone healing after surgery or fractures."
