3D-printed device controls ultrasound waves for surgical procedures

Here’s an interesting story from one of our sister publications on how 3D printing was used to create a device that improves the precision of surgery. Researchers from Nanyang Technological University in Singapore developed a 3D-printed device that harnesses high-pressure ultrasound to move, manipulate or destroy tiny objects. By controlling these photo-acoustic waves, the device […]

Liquid metals show promise in speeding additive manufacturing

The task of removing support structures for metal 3D printed / additively manufactured parts has always been a challenge. So much so, that it’s often better to design the part so that it doesn’t need support. But when the design must have an overhang that requires support, or support to reduce thermally induced distortion, you […]
