Heating and cooling systems consume huge amounts of energy, so passive temperature control can be a good way to reduce harmful emissions. Phase transition Materials (PCM) are great for this purpose, and recently Texas A&M engineers have developed a new one that can be printed on a 3D printer.
Researchers at the University of Buffalo have developed a new method for 3D printing graphene aerogels that work well as water filters. The team says this method helps make graphene aerogels scalable and stable enough to be used over and over again.
Ammonites are prehistoric cephalopods that consisted of fleshy soft tissue and hard outer shells. According to a recent study, these shells could help animals control their buoyancy due to an unusual structure.
90 square meters is the total area of the first two–storey residential building printed with a 3D printer.
Study at the British Central College of Art and Design. A few years ago, Scarlett Young noticed how much waste arises in the process of creating new fashionable clothes.
In 2020, engineers from Oxford University decided to test the acoustics of Stonehenge. It turned out that the instruments inside the ritual place could sound stronger.
Putting a nuclear reactor into operation takes years. The nuclear power industry branches into hundreds of directions, where each: from the separation of uranium isotopes to the choice of a coolant is a reason to defend a PhD. Is it possible to talk about simplifying technologies and increasing production rates with the help of 3D printing in one of the most difficult areas of science? American scientists say: Why not? and they offer to wait with bated breath for the world's first reactor with a 3D-printed core.
Anything can happen on flights to Mars and back, and all this time astronauts will have to rely on their own strength – and on the power of biotechnology. It is possible to heal a damaged area of skin and even bone using a fragment of tissue printed on a 3D printer from the patient's own cells.
