0
3D System on a chip technology at 7 nanometer lithography can provide a 1000X speed up for machine learning and other applications. The S3S 2017 program includes a paper by MonolithIC 3D Inc which will present a monolithic 3D technology …

3dWorld changing dense metal 3d printing with 100 times faster speed and 20 times lower cost

0
Desktop Metal was created to change the way we bring products to market. Current metal 3D printing is too expensive and industrial for prototyping and it’s not fast enough or cost-effective enough for mass production. Fundamentally different approaches are needed …

3d30 foot long proof of concept 3D printed submarine hull will be ten times cheaper

The Us Navy partnered with Oak Ridge National Laboratory to 3D print its first submersible that could be used to deploy logistics capabilities and sensors. Through a partnership with the Navy’s Disruptive Technology Lab, the team at ORNL’s Manufacturing Demonstration …

3d3D Printing of Metal that is 1000 times faster and 100 times lower cost

0
A new 3D printer creates metal parts at commercial production speeds. Their SPEE3D printer has the potential to turn 3D metal printing, which currently is just making prototypes of parts, into a tool for manufacturing actual parts for use. It …

3dNew 3-D carbon nanotube chip combines computing and data storage

0
Instead of relying on silicon-based devices, a new 3D chip uses carbon nanotubes, which are sheets of 2-D graphene formed into nanocylinders, and resistive random-access memory (RRAM) cells, a type of nonvolatile memory that operates by changing the resistance of …

3dRocket Labs successfully launches mostly 3D printed rocket into space and could herald price breakthrough to $5 million per launch

0
Rocket Lab broke new ground today when its Electron rocket reached space at 16:23 NZST. Rocket Lab has said they will charge $5 million for each rocket. The SpaceX Falcon 9 has a launch cost of $57 million. Rocket Lab …

3dShapeshifting noodles can be shipped flat and then change shape with hot water

0
MIT researchers have created edible origami, in the form of flat sheets of gelatin and starch that, when submerged in water, instantly sprout into three-dimensional structures, including common pasta shapes such as macaroni and rotini. The edible films can also …

3d3D imaging with centimeter precision through walls by using Wifi signals

0
Scientists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have developed a holographic imaging process that depicts the radiation of a Wi-Fi transmitter to generate three-dimensional images of the surrounding environment. Industrial facility operators could use this to track objects as …

3d3D printing of fusing and bomb structure could make bombs times lighter but still as deadly

0
The Air Force Research Lab are working on a lighter Mother of All bombs which still has similar explosive power. The Advanced Ordnance Technologies program will make bombs structured to be lighter by using 3D-printed reconstructed loads within the bomb …
