Optomec Introduces Aerosol Jet Technology for 3D Printed Electronics (Video)

Optomec Aerosol Jet printing technology is an additive manufacturing process (aka 3D printing or direct write) that prints commercially-available conductive, dielectric, semiconductor and biologic inks onto a variety of 2D or 3D plastic, ceramic, and metallic substrates. The result is 3D digital printing that eliminates the need for hard tooling photomasks or stencils and enables engineering changes to be quickly implemented by simply modifying the design file.

Prototype your own PCBs for custom projects (Video)

For all the promise of 3-D printing, most machines can only shape plastic, meaning that if you want to build even a simple electronic at home, you’re going to be plugging in the bulky, premade circuits of Arduino boards. And if you’re a real industrial designer with proper resources, you’re going to be contacting a factory in China to build a custom circuit board to your specifications. Very little can be done quickly in-house. Continue reading “Prototype your own PCBs for custom projects (Video)”

Additive Wire-Laying Machine, Could be Perfect for Integrated 3D Circuit Printing (VIDEO)

One of the advancements within the 3D Printing space, which could really expand on the applicable uses of the technology, is the 3D printing of circuits and wiring. Such technology, once perfected, would enable bas-1manufacturers and hobbyists alike to 3D print electronics in a single sitting.  Continue reading “Additive Wire-Laying Machine, Could be Perfect for Integrated 3D Circuit Printing (VIDEO)”

IBM’s 3D Printer to Revolutionize Chip Prototyping (VIDEO)

IBM Research in Zurich today unveiled a microscopic 3D printer capable of writing nanometer resolution patterns into a soft polymer, which can subsequently be transferred to silicon, III-V (gallium arsenide — GaAs), or graphene substrates. Unlike electron-beam (e-beam) lithography, the patterns can be both written and read for verification in real-time while the engineer watches under a microscope. Continue reading “IBM’s 3D Printer to Revolutionize Chip Prototyping (VIDEO)”

3DPI.TV – 3D Printed Cars becoming Reality (VIDEO)

It seems that the discussion on whether 3D printing will be a viable solution for car parts manufacturing can safely be consigned to the past. The URBEE concept car has already gone some way to accomplish that and now EDAG, a leading provider of engineering services for the automotive industry has succeeded in making it a non-issue as it presented a fully 3D printed car concept at the Geneva Motor Show. Continue reading “3DPI.TV – 3D Printed Cars becoming Reality (VIDEO)”

Animatronic Bird with 3D Printed Insides (VIDEO)

We’re all familiar with this sentence and the people working for the film industry know there’s a lot of ways to fake animals into your video. Well, get ready to witness one simple trapped little bird – a fake one of course. James Brennan-Craddock is up to something with ’Bertie’, an Animatronic Bird with 3D Printed Insides. This thing looks quite realistic, right? Continue reading “Animatronic Bird with 3D Printed Insides (VIDEO)”
