Researchers mimic lattice structures to create stronger 3D printed meta-crystal materials

In a collaborative study, researchers from Imperial College London and the University of Sheffield analyzed the lattice structures of 3D printed objects and compared them to the structure of a metallic single crystal. They found that the lattices follow metallurgical principles and replicate the monocrystalline structures of metals almost exactly via 3ders.org, http://www.3ders.org/articles/20190118-new-family-of-materials-called-meta-crystals-based-on-lattice-structures-in-3d-prints.html

Zero Waste Lab in Greece directly recycling waste plastic into 3D printed furniture

A Zero Waste Lab was just opened in Thessaloniki, Greece that directly recycles plastic into outdoor furniture. For the public, closing the plastic waste loop with direct recycling is one of the more compelling selling points of 3D printing as we all feel the guilt of our plastic waste. via 3ders.org, http://www.3ders.org/articles/20190118-zero-waste-lab-in-greece-directly-recycling-waste-plastic-into-3d-printed-furniture.html

Worlds longest 3D printed concrete pedestrian bridge opens in Shanghai

One of the biggest (pun totally intended) trends occurring in 3D printing right now is printing bridges. We just covered the opening of China's first 3D-printed footbridge in Shanghai, but another record-setting 3D-printed concrete pedestrian bridge via 3ders.org, http://www.3ders.org/articles/20190116-worlds-longest-3d-printed-bridge-opened-in-shanghai.html
