NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory has revealed that its Perseverance rover, which is due to land on Mars in February 2021, has been fitted with eleven 3D printed parts.  Perseverance’s fabricated components are featured within its “MOXIE” and “PIXL” devices, which are designed to produce oxygen and search for signs of life on the red planet….

A.D.A.M. receives 510 (K) eligibility from FDA for 3D printed bones

Connecticut-based 3D bioprinting firm A.D.A.M. (Advanced Development of Additive Manufacturing) has received 510 (K) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its 3D printed bioceramic and modified biopolymer bone implants. A.D.A.M.’s vision is to eventually enable patients to have their tissues modeled using MRI and CAT scans stored on its A.D.A.M. digital…

Eindhoven researcher develops early-stage closed-loop control system for SLA 3D printing

Thomas Hafkamp, a Ph.D. researcher at Eindhoven University of Technology, is developing a novel closed-loop control system for additive manufacturing. Detailed in his thesis titled ‘Towards closed-loop control in photopolymer-based additive manufacturing’, Hafkamp’s work focuses on the resin-based SLA process. The work stems from the fact that most 3D printers today do not utilize sensor…
