Cody Wilson and his company are again making thousands of digital-gun files publicly available, including blueprints that will enable users to make plastic guns with 3D printers, a scourge of gun-control advocates.

Here is our interview with him from 2018.

AI software enables real-time 3D printing quality assessment

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, robotics/AI

Oak Ridge National Laboratory researchers have developed artificial intelligence software for powder bed 3D printers that assesses the quality of parts in real time, without the need for expensive characterization equipment.

The software, named Peregrine, supports the “digital thread” being developed at ORNL that collects and analyzes data through every step of the manufacturing process, from design to feedstock selection to the print build to .

“Capturing that information creates a digital ‘clone’ for each part, providing a trove of data from the raw material to the operational component,” said Vincent Paquit, who leads advanced manufacturing data analytics research as part of ORNL’s Imaging, Signals and Machine Learning group. “We then use that data to qualify the part and to inform future builds across multiple part geometries and with multiple materials, achieving new levels of automation and manufacturing quality assurance.”

Converting CO2 to algae for bioplastic production

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, sustainability

Dutch designers Eric Klarenbeek and Maartje Dros have developed a bioplastic made from algae, which they believe could completely replace synthetic plastics over time.

Klarenbeek and Dros cultivate algae – aquatic plants – which they then dry and process into a material that can be used to 3D print objects.

The designers believe that the algae polymer could be used to make everything from shampoo bottles to tableware or rubbish bins, eventually entirely replacing plastics made from fossil fuels like oil.

New printing process advances 3D capabilities

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, biotech/medical, cyborgs, drones

More durable prosthetics and medical devices for patients and stronger parts for airplanes and automobiles are just some of the products that could be created through a new 3D printing technology invented by a UMass Lowell researcher.

Substances such as plastics, metals and wax are used in 3D printers to make products and parts for larger items, as the practice has disrupted the prototyping and manufacturing fields. Products created through the 3D printing of plastics include everything from toys to drones. While the for 3D plastics printers is estimated at $4 billion and growing, challenges remain in ensuring the printers create objects that are produced quickly, retain their strength and accurately reflect the shape desired, according to UMass Lowell’s David Kazmer, a plastics engineering professor who led the research project.

Called injection printing, the technology Kazmer pioneered is featured in the Additive Manufacturing posted online last week.

Robot developed that 3D prints and grills meat analogues in 6 minutes: ‘We are completely disrupting the supply chain’

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, food, robotics/AI

Robot that 3D prints and cooks plant-based meat alternatives for foodservice — can replace manufacturing practices.


Israeli start-up SavorEat has developed an automated, closed system that 3D prints and cooks plant-based meat alternatives for foodservice. “This robot can replace manufacturing practices,” CEO Racheli Vizman tells FoodNavigator.

‘Meat of the future’: KFC to ‘3D bioprint’ meat using ‘animal flesh cells’

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, bioprinting, food

It’s happening…


MOSCOW — KFC has partnered with a Russian bioprinting company to bring 3D printed chicken nuggets to the table.

Coined as the “meat of the future,” the lab-created chicken meat is KFC’s response to the growing interest of healthy lifestyles, the rise in demand for meat alternatives and the increasing need to develop more environmentally friendly methods of food production.

The Same Company 3D Printing KFC’s Meat Nuggets Is Printing Human Tissue in Space As Well

Posted by in categories: 3D printing, food, space

Interesting.


No word on whether they’ve tried to print chicken nuggets in space, though.
