Selective Laser Melting Technology

EP-M250 SLM 3D Printer Selective Laser Melting technology (SLM) Using the low power laser can directly melt elemental or alloy metal powder material, and can prototype an arbitrary complex structure and close to 100% density metal parts without cutter or tooling. Material utilization rate is high, making cost lower The build part forms layer after…

Bio Concrete – 3D Printed Material

Self-healing of Concrete by Bacterial Mineral Precipitation Image courtesy of Tudelft.nl Repairing cracks in concrete structures is a time consuming, costly but necessary business. TU Delft is researching how the self-healing capacity of concrete structures can be improved by using calcite-precipitating bacteria and what conditions are necessary for these bacteria to thrive. Crack prevention Although…

If 3D-printed carbon fiber is the future, it’s already here

At the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show, Nissan suggested an idea at once futuristic and intuitive: Automotive components should be quickly and easily replaceable with the help of a 3D printers. The IDx NISMO concept featured removable fenders that could be hypothetically upgraded with the proper conceptual hardware. One obvious implication was that a tech-savvy track…

3d print directly with pelletized materials

Open Source Pellet Extruder Universal Pellet Extruder brings pellet 3D printing close to people. Many 3D printer users are used to buy large rolls of filament, but how about ditching the rolls of filament for plastic pellets?! As always, RichRap wants to maintain his project as part of the open-source community. So, all of the…

Sustainability and Tradition

In general, the communities of the present are either the followers of the rural communities that have existed for centuries in Romania, or communities created as a result of the displacement of a great part of the rural population towards urban areas, during the excessive industrialization of the 1950-1990 period. In both cases, the basis…

Using Local Resources

According to EU regulation, for the category of traditional products of extended use, such as wood, natural aggregates, natural stone, limestone, mineral wool, whose importance and value could not be ignored by the modernist trend of the last decades of constructions, there are harmonized European standards for each product which apply to the known EC…

3D Printable Cement for 3D Printing Houses and Structures

While 3D printing homes still sounds like something that only happens in science fiction, the technology is coming along nicely. There are naturally a few hurdles to overcome before it becomes commonplace, but most of the pieces are already in place. Companies have developed large robots capable of acting as large-scale 3D printers, and new…

Printers and Materials

3D Printing Materials Plastics At the moment the majority of 3D Printers, especially the low cost systems, print using a technology called ‘Fused filament fabrication (FFF)’, these printers currently tend to print using one of the following materials: • PLA (Polylactic Acid) – PLA is probably the easiest material to work with when you first…
