3D Printer from Optemec Prints Embedded Electronics onto almost Any Substrate

Unlike systems that we’ve profiled in the past, Optomec’s Aerosol Jet 300 is a beast of a different order. Built to construct electronic and biological designs at the nanoscale, the Aerosol Jet 300 can process metals and “biologics” by depositing materials via an atomized spray onto any viable substrate.

The Swarmscapers: Students Create 3D Printing Robots Capable of Building in Outlying Areas

Imagine a reality of 3D printing robots, in a community unto themselves, diligently working in unpredictable temperatures and conditions, strong and steady — just taking care of business. Efficiently. Perfectly. Without complaint. This is what a group of student architects are perfecting with the Swarmscapers.
