Rices 3D printed cervix models help teach cervical cancer screening

A group of students at Rice University have developed a device that can assist in the treatment and diagnosis of cervical cancer. The 3D printed device has a number of cervix models which can be used for training, and it will be particularly helpful for medical professionals in areas with limited resources. via 3ders.org, http://www.3ders.org/articles/20180418-rices-3d-printed-cervix-models-help-teach-cervical-cancer-screening.html

TU Chemnitz builds electrical motor using copper, ceramics and iron in a single 3D print

A team of researchers at TU Chemnitz has succeeded in fabricating the first fully 3D printed electrical motor, after over two years of research. The motor was put together using an advanced 3D printing technique that uses viscous pastes, simultaneously printing ceramics and metallic materials. via 3ders.org, http://www.3ders.org/articles/20180418-tu-chemnitz-builds-electrical-motor-using-copper-ceramics-and-iron-in-a-single-3d-print.html

Draadloos lijmpistool van Toolcraft (zie mancave.conrad.nl)

Bij de Mancave Tip reviewen we producten die jij kan gebruiken in je Mancave. Dit keer bekijken we een draadloos lijmpistool van Toolcraft. Het is onder de dertig euro en zou gebruikt kunnen worden op plekken waar geen stopcontact is. Handig? Wij vergelijken het in de video met een Bosch lijmpistool, die wij al een tijdje gebruiken. Want hoe vergelijkt …Continue reading →

U.S. Army 3D prints squid-like soft robots for improved stealth in combat

A joint research project between the University of Minnesota and the U.S. Army has taken inspiration from nature for 3D printed soft robots. The robots' motion is based on that of invertebrates, as this allows for improved flexibility with less complex mechanisms and electronics, increasing the viability for battlefield use. via 3ders.org, http://www.3ders.org/articles/20180418-us-army-3d-prints-squid-like-soft-robots-for-improved-stealth-in-combat.html
