Published on June 2, 2024 by Isaac B.

Welcome to our compilation of this week’s most compelling 3D printing highlights. We kick off this week’s edition with our very own video, providing a quick sneak peek into the exciting RAPID + TCT 2024 event, which will be held June 25th to 27th in Los Angeles. Next, TechTalkCentral explores the transformative impact of 3D printing on modern manufacturing, highlighting its crucial role in driving Industry 4.0. Moving forward, Kristy Derr from the National Institutes of Health’s NCATS lab discusses the revolutionary advancements in 3D printing human tissue for disease research and drug discovery. Fourth-in-line, we’re shown how 3D printed homes are becoming more popular across the country as Azure, a California-based company, showcased its tiny homes to prospective buyers in Nashville, Tennesse. To finish off, we provide an additional 3Dnatives video, covering the Spanish startup Pangea Aerospace and their goals of improving the production efficiency of space rocket engines through the use of additive manufacturing. Let’s get started!

Top 1: RAPID + TCT 2024 Sneak Peek!

First up, we present our very own video, providing a sneak peek of what you can expect at RAPID + TCT 2024. From June 25th to 27th, North America’s largest additive manufacturing and industrial 3D printing event will open its doors in Los Angeles, bringing together various players in the sector, including 3D equipment manufacturers, material suppliers, service providers, and more, who will present their latest innovations.

Top 2: 3D Printing and the Fourth Industrial Revolution

TechTalkCentral explores the transformative impact of 3D printing on modern manufacturing, highlighting its crucial role in Industry 4.0. The video emphasizes the significant impact of AM on product design, allowing for unprecedented customization and innovation. Additionally, it also touches on the environmental benefits, including waste reduction and sustainability, and anticipates future advancements like 4D printing and bioprinting for everyday consumer use.

Top 3: 3D Printing Human Tissue

In this video by Strange Parts, Kristy Derr from the National Institutes of Health’s NCATS lab discusses the revolutionary advancements in 3D printing human tissue for disease research and drug discovery. She explains, in detail, how bioprinting can precisely and accurately place cells to create complex tissue structures, such as blood vessels, by using various hydrogels and biological materials like collagen and elastin. She also provides insights on the more technical aspects of bioprinting, including different types of print heads and materials, and the challenges of replicating the complexity of human organs.

Top 4: Azure 3D Printed Tiny Homes

Next, we’re shown how 3D printed homes are becoming more popular across the country. Azure, a California-based company, has recently showcased its innovative tiny homes to prospective buyers and investors in Nashville, Tennesse. These homes, aimed at providing affordable housing and office space, are constructed using 65% recycled plastic, fiberglass, and other eco-friendly materials, addressing both efficiency and sustainability concerns. Impressively, Azure reports that these homes can be built and delivered within just one month.

Top 5: Pangea Aerospace

We wrap up this week’s top 5 with another video from the 3Dnatives team.  Founded in 2018, the Spanish startup Pangea Aerospace was born with the aim of improving the production efficiency of space rocket engines through the use of additive manufacturing. We spoke with Matt Tanner, Head of Turbomachinery, to learn more about the company’s vision of this technology’s benefits and limitations in the aerospace industry.
