The dodo,an extinct, giant flightless pigeon once endemic to the island of Mauritius, may arguably be the most widely known animal species to have gone extinct in human history. However, despite its prominence in popular culture, surprisingly little is known of the anatomy and biology of this animal.

Additive manufacturing or 3D printing as it is more commonly known, is rapidly changing the way the world makes things. Soon we may be able to go our local 3D print shop and print a new product that we just downloaded the design for. 3D printing advancements are impacting the medical products area in a […]

3D printing otherwise known as additive manufacturing is preparing to take the world by storm. Are we really ready for technology that will let people design or download designs to a community 3D printer and print what ever product they choose? This may sound far fetched, but the science is moving very quickly in this […]

New Developments in Biologically Inspired Engineering. Learning the lessons of evolution from nature is a short cut for scientists and engineers as they work to develop processes and products that excel in a certain characteristic. Bio mimicry, as it is also known, allows designers to skip to the most efficient design, for everything from airplanes to […]

More and More Products to be 3D Printed at Home. 3D printing techniques have quickly become some of the most widely used tools to rapidly design and build new components. It has potential to change manufacturing as we know not just for commercial goods but also for human tissue and even nano-machines.

Ceramics Using 3D Printing. 3D printing as a technology owes its value as a manufacturing process to the materials that it ultimately able to work with. Using 3D printing to manufacture a car for example using only plastic will not yield a product that can compete for reliable with conventional techniques.

A 3D Printed UAV, Really? Additive manufacturing or 3d printing technology is changing so quickly that it is very hard to keep up with what is happening. The U.S. Department of Energy has 3d printed an entire Shelby Cobra replica car and the medical industry is printing body parts! Humans body parts?

Using 3D Printing for Medical Research. One of the maybe unintentional advantages of using additive manufacturing, or 3D printing as it is known for modelling the human body is that researchers can now have a much more visual way of seeing how the parts of the body interact and possibly even find some insights into […]
