3dNASA 3D Printed Mars Habitat Design winners

NASA announced winners of the 3D printed Mars habitat design challenge. They had both exterior and interior designs. Team Zopherus from Rogers, Arkansas, was the first-place winner of Phase 3: Level 1 of NASA’s 3D-Printed Habitat Challenge. The team’s design …

3dDARPA wants to speed up computers by over 1000 times while using less power

DARPA has revealed the research teams selected to drive two efforts to go beyond Moore’s law. DARPA’s $1.5 billion Electronics Resurgence Initiative (ERI) wants to jumpstart innovation in the electronics industry. Three Dimensional Monolithic System-on-a-Chip (3DSoC) program has groups from …

3d3D Printed studio scale model of Discovery from 2001 Space Odyssey

3D printing has come a long way and this can be seen in a hyper-detailed one-tenth studio scale model of the Discovery spaceship from the 2001 movie. The prototype 3D printed model is more like movie prop replica. It photo …

3dLockheed 3D printing titanium space parts using garage sized printer

Lockheed is 3D printing titanum fuel tank for Lockheed Martin’s largest satellites. Using this manufacturing method, tank delivery time went down from two years to three months (nine times faster) and they are no longer wasting 80% of the materials. …

3dLucid AI and software removing barriers to a world with mainstream 3D experiences and VR shopping

Lucid is scaling its core 3D software technology into more mobile and smart devices featuring dual or multi-cameras. Lucid’s proprietary real-time 3D Fusion technology, which mimics how the brain processes and learns from what humans see with two eyes, will …

3dSynthetic meat that is more like real free range meat using 4 types of cells

Aleph Farms is producing clean meat that resembles free range meat using a 3D textured process. Aleph Farm’s technology overcomes a critical clean meat issue – similarity to real meat. Our clean meat is closer to free range meat thanks …

3dNASA laser wire 3D printing of rocket nozzles is much cheaper and five times faster

A new process called Laser Wire Direct Closeout (LWDC) was developed and advanced at NASA to build a less-expensive rocket nozzle in significantly less time. LWDC is a different process than most 3-D printing technologies, which are powder-based and fabricated …

3dRocket Lab successfully reaches orbit and deploys payloads and will charge less than $5 million per launch

Rocket Lab has successfully reached orbit with the test flight of its second Electron orbital launch vehicle, Still Testing. Electron lifted-off at 14:43 NZDT from Rocket Lab Launch Complex 1 on the Māhia Peninsula in New Zealand. Following successful first …

3dLawrence Livermore unlocks 3D printing to smaller than 150 nanometer features

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) researchers have discovered novel ways to extend the capabilities of two-photon lithography (TPL), a high-resolution 3D printing technique capable of producing nanoscale features smaller than one-hundredth the width of a human hair. The findings unleashes …

3dGoogle and UCSB achieve 3D integration of Superconducting qubits

Researchers from Google and the University of California Santa Barbara have taken an important step towards the goal of building a large-scale quantum computer. Writing in the journal Quantum Science and Technology, they present a new process for creating superconducting …
