TOP 1- U.S. Marines Mobile 3D Printing Laboratory
The U.S. military is once again showing their interest in additive manufacturing with the Marine Corps’ latest experimentation: A stand-alone 3D mobile laboratory (X-FAB). This lab will give a whole new advantage to the marines, from making parts to experimentation.
TOP 2- Kids only 3D printer
The Toybox 3D printer is a kid’s only printer that will let their creativity run wild! The printer comes with a mobile application that is frequently updated with new toys and objects to print and customize. In addition, the app also offers both children and their parents the option to create and print their own creations!
TOP 3- Science and 3D printing
Scientists at the National Laboratory of Argonne, one of the largest research laboratories in the United States, are using very powerful X-rays in order to observe and analyze, in real time, the physical functioning of 3D printing. This X-ray has a resolution of 50,000 images per second and therefore allows them to detect the formation of defects during the different printing layers. Thanks to this technology, they are hoping to help industries produce reliable and non-abnormal parts.
TOP 4- Robogami foldable robots
With Robogami, the CSAIL lab is helping to make customizing robots easier than ever before. Thanks to the system developed by the lab, users can create robots from a catalog containing pre-existing parts.
TOP 5- 3D printing ancient swords
In China, a sword collector has been left with only the Jade pieces of the swords that date back to the Han dynasty, a period that began around 2,000 years ago. Curious to see what the swords would have looked like, the collector turned to 3D printing to help make this curiosity into a reality! Check it out below
