Picatinny Arsenal has revealed a litany of potential electronic applications for additive material and 3D printing. Most of the projects listed would have a direct impact in the military field, and anything cutting down the weight and price of battle equipment would be welcome throughout the ranks. With specific additives, Picatinny looks to provide radio frequency to helmets, clothing even weaponry for signals and communication. Of course, electronic equipment is not limited to ground forces, and Picatinny Arsenal foresees 3D printing in Unarmed Arial Vehicles or UAV’s. While radio frequency and electronic components in arsenals and vehicles is not new, it is what 3D printing allows that has Picatinny Arsenal giddy.

This video feature is about 3D Printed Loudspeakers. The first to get their video out to the public was Cornell researchers in Hod Lipson’s Creative Machines Lab. Their goal is to move 3D Printing away from passive parts to printing integrated systems. For this project they used two different printers, but Hod Lipson, Associate Professor at Cornell University, believes soon we will be able to use a single printer for manufacturing complete functioning products. Check the video below to see the loudspeaker in action. Continue reading “3D Printed Loudspeaker – 2 Versions (VIDEOS)”
As researchers at Picatinny Arsenal explore the potential of 3-dimensional printing, they envision the potential to embed a radio antenna on the side of a Soldier’s helmet, or print sensors directly onto a weapon or even an article of clothing.
Over the past few years, advancements in 3D printing have enabled scientists to print items ranging from body organs to candy. At Picatinny, scientists and engineers are using additive manufacturing and 3D printing to print electronics, weapon components, and training models.

The Cartesian Co. printer EX¹ transforms electronics and prototyping in the same way that 3D printing has made things possible that were inconceivable even 5 years ago.
The EX¹ printer is not designed to create any 3D object like normal 3D printers. It’s been crafted and designed for one key purpose, to allow you to 3D print circuit boards, layering silver nano particles onto paper or any suitable surface to rapidly create a circuit board. In 2011, an article in Wired said that within two years 3D printers could print electronic circuits. Two years to the day, we’re announcing the EX¹, a printer that allows you to rapidly 3D print circuit boards.

While 3D printing (or additive manufacturing) has been used for product prototyping purposes, new developments from Disney Research could see electronics directly integrated into products as they are printed.
In the paper “Printed Optics: 3D Printing of Embedded Optical Elements for Interactive Devices”, the researchers from Disney Research looked at ways in which sensing, display and illumination elements can be directly embedded in the casing or structure of a device.
