3D Printed Geneva Drive

A Geneva drive is a two-geared mechanism which turns a continuous rotation into an intermittent rotary motion, thus producing very precise ticks forward. It was developed by Swiss watchmakers, and is still used today in movie projectors, the machines that banks use to count money, and even this cool 3D printed Stargate mechanism. But now, bioengineers at Columbia University have created a...

Drawing People

A few months ago we did an article on 3Doodler Pens, a cool little device that allowed the users to “draw in 3D using thermoplastics. But how far can you take the device? Since its inception in 2013 we have seen wallets, or clothes, and even small complex vehicles, but our robotic friend aptly dubbed Voight, takes the cake. Partnered with GMC , Justin Mattarocchia has created a robotic form and...

3D Printed Surfaces that can Change Hardness and Texture!

MIT has developed technology that will allow for soft materials to be printed with a special texture that can change on demand. The material is composed of to separate polymer agents that have two different levels of stiffness. This is created by placing a harder polymer that is embedded within a softer polymer.  When the shape of the softer polymer is changed such as through squeezing or...

3D Printed Bandaid

Students at Taiwan’s National University have recently used 3D-printing to make a digital “band-aid”. This technological “band-aid” is actually a device that monitors a patient’s vital signs, collects, stores, and reports data for the doctors to better assess their patient’s condition in different environments and conditions (physical exertion, stress,...
