The research is geared toward helping veterans who suffer combat injuries.... The post 3D printing could help regrow bones of injured combat veterans appeared first on Digital Trends.
Researchers have that found that 3D printers spew tiny particles into the air as they operate, though the quantity and nature of these potentially toxic aerosols are poorly understood. A new study... identifies a startling variety of these emissions, and the conditions under which they're produced.
Newly published research details lithium-ion batteries created using 3D printing technologies. The new method is capable of producing these batteries in nearly any shape, opening the door for unique... designs that could bring higher capacities to consumer devices. In their typically available form factors, these batteries are either rectangular or cylindrical. Lithium-ion batteries, despite their potential volatility, are commonly used …
Cody Wilson, owner of Defense Distributed and at the center of lawsuits over the ability to sell plans for 3D-printed guns online, is now wanted by the US Marshals. Wilson has been charged with... sexually assaulting a child in Texas, and Austin Police...
Malicious actors could take control of thousands of 3D printers that can be accessed directly from the Internet without requiring any authentication. According to the SANS Internet Storm Center, a... Shodan search reveals over 3,700 instances of OctoPrint interfaces exposed to the Web, including nearly 1,600 in the United States.
The US Marine Corps is testing the use a large concrete-based 3D printer to rapidly create barracks. The project has taken place at the US Army Engineer Research and Development Center in Illinois,... where the I Marine Expeditionary Force used the printer to create a 500-sqft barracks hut in only 40 hours. Such technology could be used following natural disasters, …
University of Minnesota researchers 3D printed an array of light receptors on a hemispherical surface
This chronology of events certainly captures modern America pretty well: On Sunday, a mass shooting and tragic loss of life. The next day, a judge's order bars a Texas firm from putting blueprints for... making untraceable 3D-printed guns online. The day after that, the founder of that company says ok, fine. Instead of putting them online en masse, I'll just sell them, to one buyer at a time. Problem solved. It's all there, encapsulated in that sequence of events. A fascination with guns. An ability of the current legal and political system to put any meaningful new limits on the spread of guns. And a pro-gun activist using technology to put untraceable firearms, which you don't need a background check for, since after all you're just printing these, into more peoples' hands than might...
Defense Distributed, the group behind the blueprints, vows to fight on.
3D-printed metal parts produced through a Europe-wide collaboration of high-performance industrial sectors have undergone extensive testing for space use - tested to destruction in many cases - by... ESA's specialist advanced manufacturing lab in the UK....
Most of the objects we see are colored by pigments, but using pigments has disadvantages: such colors can fade, industrial pigments are often toxic, and certain color effects are impossible to... achieve. The natural world, however, also exhibits structural coloration, where the microstructure of an object causes various colors to appear. Peacock feathers, for instance, are pigmented brown, but--because of long hollows within the feathers--reflect the gorgeous, iridescent blues and greens we see and admire. Recent advances in technology have made it practical to fabricate the kind of nanostructures that result in structural coloration, and computer scientists from the Institute of Science and Technology Austria (IST Austria) and the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST)...
On August 1st, Defense Distributed was set to upload designs of 3D-printed guns for the public to buy and download. But the day before, a Seattle judge temporarily blocked their release after seven... states and Washington, DC sued the company and State...
The TSA says officers are trained to detect 3D-printed weapons
Authorities are scrambling to get ahead of a potential flood of untraceable and undetectable 3D-printer guns in New York as the federal courts weigh the online release of blueprints for the weapons.... The White House on Wednesday said President Trump backed the temporary halting of Texas-based company Defense Distributed's planned release of the online schematics....
On Tuesday, President Donald Trump took to Twitter as he does every morning. In between his usual tweets about “fake news” and “no Russian collusion,” he posted something out of the ordinary... for him: a note about "3-D plastic guns." I am looking into 3-D Plastic Guns being sold to the public. Already spoke to NRA, doesn’t seem to make much sense! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 31, 2018 What the president is talking about are firearms manufactured by 3-D printers, the kind someone might buy for their home and literally print themselves a gun. The first thing you should know: It’s not illegal to make your own gun. Gun enthusiasts have been legally manufacturing their own pistols, handguns, rifles, and other firearms for centuries — there's not even a requirement...
The do-it-yourself weapons are made from plastic and not picked up by metal detectors
President Donald Trump says he is consulting with the National Rifle Association over whether it makes sense for a Texas company to publish downloadable blueprints for a 3D-printed gun
Deep learning is one of the fastest-growing machine learning methods that relies on multi-layered artificial neural networks. Traditionally, deep learning systems are implemented to be executed on a... computer to digitally learn data representation and abstraction, and perform advanced tasks, comparable to or even superior than the performance of human experts. Recent successful applications of deep learning include medical image analysis, speech recognition, language translation, image classification, as well as addressing more specific tasks, such as solving inverse imaging problems.
Gun control groups lost an emergency bid Friday to block a Texas organization from posting instructions to 3-D print a gun online.
The average internet user will be able to choose from thousands of 3-D printed gun designs as soon as August 1. Gun rights activist Cody Wilson plans to relaunch Defcad.com next month.
Lockheed Martin has just finished the final series of quality control tests for an enormous titanium dome meant to serve as caps for satellite fuel tanks. It's not just any ordinary dome, though: the... enormous component measures four feet in diameter...
A multi-year legal battle over the ability to distribute computer models of gun parts and replicate them in 3D printers has ended in defeat for government authorities who sought to prevent the... practice. Cody Wilson, the gunmaker and free speech advocate behind the lawsuit, now intends to expand his operations, providing printable gun blueprints to all who desire them.
Dora Goodman, a maker of handcrafted cameras and straps, has released a new open source camera called the Goodman One that anyone can make if they have access to a 3D printer. Goodman tells PetaPixel... that she has been working on the design of the Goodman One for the past two years, and she’s not […]
Researchers have developed soft, magnetic shape-shifting materials that could one day lead to 3D printable robots
What is 3D printing? This fast, efficient object printing process has become a core part of multiple industries, and plenty of at-home hobbies. But what exactly is it, and how does it work? We're... going to go over what 3D printing is, the different types of 3D printing, and the incredible ways that this printing […] The post What is 3D printing?
