3D printing

Researchers at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory are using bamboo fibre in 3-D printing experiments to determine whether bio-based feedstock materials are feasible in additive manufacturing. Chopped bamboo fibres were added to a bio-polymer resin to create bamboo-based pellets, resulting ...

San Francisco based start-up Divergent Microfactories has unveiled a new manufacturing method using 3D printing that they claim will reduce the pollution, materials and capital costs associated with building cars. The technique is based around the company’s proprietary solution called ...

The city is the first in the UK to have one of the world’s first-ever high strength desktop 3D composite printers, as well as being chosen as the location for the UK’s launch of the technology.

The U.S. department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory has used 3D printing technology to make a Shelby Cobra from carbon fibre reinforced plastics.

The 3D printed carbon fibre reinforced ski boot prototype won the award at the ISPO show in Munich.

Mounted on a carbon fibre single shell chassis, the NTU Venture (NV) 8 will race in the Urban Concept category at this year’s Shell Eco-marathon Asia. University students have also built the NTU Venture (NV) 9, a slick three-wheeled racer ...
