Astrocyte, Philip Beesley New “Living Architecture”

The Canadian architectural firm, Philip Beesley, is taking 3D printing and artificial intelligence to another level. The company has created a new “living architecture” named Astrocyte.

It was first presented at Toronto’s Expo for Design, Innovation, and Technology (EDIT) 2017. Astrocyte is a combination of 3D printed lighting materials with sensors, glasswork, and chemistry for it to work with the artificial intelligence. It created an otherworldly and superb architectural experience that is new for the people.

Purdue University Develops 3D Printed Explosives Using Inkjet Printer

The university has developed a way to 3D print some energetic materials that can sometimes be dangerous if mishandled.

The research project has permitted the energetic materials to be stored safely. Since the university has a high-quality facility and a vast knowledge of additive manufacturing and energetic materials, there were able to handle it perfectly. With only using an inkjet-style 3D printing technique, they were able to 3D print it.

Japanese Researchers Find New Ways To Bioprinting

Bioprinting is getting bigger and bigger as new researches are being made every day. It has been improving time and time again and now, some Japanese researchers have found a way to use a better material.

Japan’s Osaka University has found a new material that can be better than sodium alginate, which is the most commonly used gelling agent for inkjet bioprinting, for inkjet bioprinting. They discovered that hydrogen peroxide is way better than sodium alginate, which is not compatible with most of the cells.

Chinese Researchers Find Alternative Way Of 3D Printing Liver

More and more hospitals are using 3D printed models of internal organs for research and surgery purposes.

Hebei University’s very own Professor Cheng Shujie and his team have lead a research discovering a better way to 3D print a patient-specific liver model. It has the same complexity as the real human liver plus it is cheaper and faster to make.
