MIT’s Vision-Controlled Jetting Unleashes Material Innovation

Introduction: In a groundbreaking leap for 3D printing technology, a collaborative effort between MIT, Inkbit, and ETH Zurich has given birth to a cutting-edge 3D inkjet printing system. Unlike its traditional counterparts, this innovative system not only widens the scope of printable materials but also boasts an impressive speed advantage. […]

The researchers was able to supply its material with patterns resembling those of a snail shell by incorporating large numbers of CNCs into it.

An eco-friendly 3D printed material that is tougher than bone and aluminium.

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has discovered a new plant-derived 3D printed material that might pave the way for future sustainable manufacturing processes.This material features a highly-reinforced brick-and-mortar structure, similar to that of a mollusc’s inner shell, and is created from a mix of synthetic plastic and cellulose nanocrystals […]

MIT Self Assembly lab-developed tech could lead to a new family of high-throughput AM processes for elastomers

Rapid Liquid Print’s (RLP) seed funding round is led by BMW I Ventures.

The MIT Self Assembly Lab’s liquid-in-liquid 3D printing technology got a lot of press attention and publicity when it was originally introduced. We were sceptical about it, to be honest. Then BMW began to experiment with it, demonstrating that Rapid Liquid Printing technology held a lot of promise for automotive […]
