Dan Shannon, biology teacher and founder of the Moeller Molecular Modeling Club at his school took education to a new level. He and his students create 3D printed models of molecular structures.
This week’s future links deal with printing in space including 3D printing for the International Space Station, 4D printing for space equipment, 3D-printed rockets and medical supplies for space as well as satellites.
Scientists in the Department of Physics at the University of Warwick in the UK might have laid the foundation for highly efficient circuits. For the first time, they managed to measure the electronic structure of stacks of 2D materials which allows to understand the transfer of electrical energy, hence a stack’s performance as a semiconductor in a nano-circuit.
At interpack 2017 we talked to representatives of industry leading companies about drupa 2016 and drupa 2020. Here comes the second edition of our series “1 Year After drupa” with Windmöller & Hölscher, PrintCity Allianz and KURZ.
Here comes a special edition of our future links featuring the latest news on augmented reality. Find out all about AR pups, the challenges for VR and Pokémon Go, but also why this sector experiences a gold rush and how governments offer financial support for its further development.
In this week’s future links it is all about 3D-printed furniture. Exciting examples, benefits of 3D-printed furniture, the combination of 3D printing with traditional craftsmanship and 3D printed parts for plane interiors.
As we all know, 3D printing plays a major role in today’s printing industry. The toy, furniture and even medical industries all heavily rely on 3D-printed objects. But said objects always come in a ribbed, sharp condition when coming out of the printer, so they need finishing to smoothen the surface. 3D Chemical Melting Finishing (3D-CMF) could be the solution for that.
