3D Printing the Houses of the Future | 3D Print HQ

3D Printing the Houses of the Future | 3D Print HQ | virtual sculpture + 3d printing | Scoop.it

 

3D printing is a technique used in manufacturing a product to convert a digital design into physical reality.

 

It prints by creating cross sections which are then hardened with binding agents by putting layer upon layer of liquid or sheet material or powder.

 

The first 3D printers appeared in 1980′s but they were huge just like early computers and far too expensive too.

 

How things have changed in the last 30 years. In comparison with 1980′s era today’s printers are more economical and more in demand.

 

 Their manufacturing process is quite addictive and has deep down impact on a consumer’s imagination.

The 3d printing process shown in this article uses cement to create complex shapes with a target for being specifically used for buildings, showing that individual pieces can be printed separately with all the allowances for wiring and services built in.

Just Like Terminator: Scientists Devise Way to build 3-D Structures Out of Liquid Metal

Just Like Terminator: Scientists Devise Way to build 3-D Structures Out of Liquid Metal | virtual sculpture + 3d printing | Scoop.it

Through the development of three-dimensional printing technology and techniques, researchers from North Carolina State University have discovered a way to create free-standing structures made of liquid metal at room temperature.

 

"It's difficult to create structures out of liquids, because liquids want to bead up. But we've found that a liquid metal alloy of gallium and indium reacts to the oxygen in the air at room temperature to form a 'skin' that allows the liquid metal structures to retain their shapes," Michael Dickey, an assistant professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering at NC State and co-author of a paper describing the work, said in a press release.

 

Throughout the study, the researchers developed multiple techniques for creating these structures that can be used to connect electronic components in three dimensions, including stacking droplets of liquid metal on top of each other like a stack of oranges at the supermarket, they said. Importantly, the droplets adhere to one another, but retain their shape, withstanding the urge to merge into a single, larger droplet.

Another technique injects liquid metal into a polymer template so that the metal takes on a specific shape before the template is then dissolved, leaving the bare, liquid metal in the desired shape.

 

Furthermore, the researchers developed techniques for creating liquid metal wires able to retain their shape even when held perpendicular to the substrate. 

 

Going forward, Dickey's team is exploring how to further develop these techniques, as well as devising ways to use them in a variety of electronics and with current 3-D printing technologies. However, despite the fact that Dickey oversaw the work, the main driving force, he says, was someone else entirely. "I'd also like to note that the work by an undergraduate, Collin Ladd, was indispensable to this project," Dickey says. "He helped develop the concept, and literally created some of this technology out of spare parts he found himself."

The year in 3D printing: lingerie models, jet engines and the twerking Einstein | virtual sculpture + 3d printing | Scoop.it
This was arguably the year that 3D printing went mainstream. The once-derided technology has been used to create everything from wings used in the Victoria's Secret fashion show this month to fuel nozzles for GE's jet engines.

3D printing is fascinating, but for now its impact is likely to be limited to particular low-volume, lightweight applications because of materials issues.

The latest gaming influence on healthcare? Holographs to amplify 3-D imaging

The latest gaming influence on healthcare? Holographs to amplify 3-D imaging | virtual sculpture + 3d printing | Scoop.it

There’s no question the gaming world has influenced recent developments in healthcare. Avatars, for example, have been entering the realms of health insurance exchanges, patient adherence and clinical trial collaboration. Actual games have been developed to help doctors identify symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder, improve vaccine education, and help young doctors and nurses improve their communication skills with patients. But how about holograms?
